Benefits of Seawater

Seawater is known to have a similar composition to our blood plasma. Such water, as found in Aqua Maris nasal health solutions, offers numerous benefits to the human body because of the number of oligoelements, vitamins, mineral salts, and trace elements found within. Seawater is also an astringent and speeds up the healing of wounds in addition to having several therapeutic powers, including antiseptic effects (antibacterial and antiviral), stimulation of local circulation, regeneration of atrophied nasal mucosa, support for the normal physiological status of the mucosa, and cleansing and soothing effects on the nasal ciliated epithelium. Floating in seawater helps release tension and stress, while deep breathing of sea air helps infinitesimal particles of salt in the air to find their way into the deepest areas of pulmonary alveoli, which has a significant physiological effect. It has also been proven that the isotonic solution of seawater improves the natural nasal cleaning system, reducing mucosal dryness and crust creation.
