During a Hot Spring bath like the ones on the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, the body absorbs some amounts of minerals such as carbon dioxide, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, and lithium. These minerals help provide healing effects to different organs and systems in the body. These seemingly subtle health benefits include increased immunity due to stimulation of the immune system.
Here is a list of several benefits of several minerals and chemicals found in Hot Springs.
Benefits of Boron: it builds muscle mass, increases brain activity and strengthens bones.
Benefits of Calcium: it strengthens bones to prevent osteoporosis and helps to regulate bodily functions. It is essential to the function of many internal organs such as the heart.
Benefits of chloride: it is a chemical the human body needs for metabolism (the process of turning food into energy). It also helps keep the body’s acid-base balance
Benefits of Iron: it builds up the quality of your blood, prevents stress and fatigue and improves skin tone.
Benefits of Magnesium: it maintains normal heart rhythms, assists in reducing high blood pressure and aids in eliminating body toxins. It also converts blood sugar to energy and promotes healthy skin.
Benefits of Potassium: it assists in the normalization of heart rhythms, reduces high blood pressure, helps to eliminate body toxins and promotes healthy skin.
Benefits of Sodium: it assists with the alleviation of arthritic symptoms, stimulate the body’s lymphatic system and also help to maintain body fluid balance.
In addition to the mineral rich waters of the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, it helps control the growth of acne-causing bacteria and helps slow signs of aging like lines, wrinkles and saggy skin.
