We all know vitamins and minerals are good for us. The question is where can we find all the good vitamins and minerals, and what is the best way to get the positive effect of vitamins and minerals on our body?

First, let’s start by understanding the difference between minerals and vitamins. Vitamins are organic substances, made by plants or animals, whereas minerals are inorganic elements that come from the soil and water.

There are two kinds of vitamins: fat soluble and water soluble. The fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K dissolve in fat and can be stored in the body. The water-soluble vitamins like C and the B-complex vitamins need to dissolve in water before the body can absorb them, so our body can’t store these vitamins, and any vitamin that isn’t being used is lost. Therefore, those vitamins require fresh supply every day.

What’s the Importance of Minerals and Vitamins?

Minerals and vitamins help our body in many ways: they boost the immune system, support normal growth and development, and help cells and organs work properly. Calcium for example is a mineral that help bone strength, and is especially important for women.

It is very important to eat a variety of foods, which can supply all the vitamins and minerals our body needs to develop and keep good health. It is also important to balance carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and calories. Try to choose whole or unprocessed foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, lean meats and fish. Those foods are the best choice for providing the nutrients our body needs to stay healthy.

But minerals and vitamins can be absorbed into the body not only by eating, but also by rubbing them onto our skin surface or bathing in water that are rich in minerals.

Minerals Found in Dead Sea Products

The Dead Sea is known for its rich minerals components, including Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Chloride and Bromide. Potassium, for instance, helps with muscle and nervous system function. It also helps the body to maintain the balance of water in the blood and body tissues. Magnesium helps muscles and nerves function, steadies the heart rhythm, and keeps bones strong. It also helps the body create energy and make proteins.

Jericho Skin Care products are packed with rich minerals from the Dead Sea soil, but also have added vitamins to offer complete beauty nourishment.  The Bath Salts and Black Mud are especially high in mineral content. Every facial cream by Jericho Skin Care offers a rich mineral balance combined with vitamins such as vitamin A and C like our Moisturizing Day Cream and Nourishing Night Cream. We also recommend to  try out Jericho Body Scrub, which is rich in vitamin C and B5.

Jericho Skincare Tip: When choosing vitamins, always choose food based vitamins instead of synthetic vitamins.
