Dead Sea salts are not only a healthy source of sodium and potassium, but they also have antioxidants that help fight bacteria. Today, some medical professionals are recommending Dead Sea salts for BV. But is this recommendation valid?
Salts Worldwide International (SWI) is a company that sells Dead Sea salts. According to the company’s website, it is one of the leading suppliers of sea salts to the United States and other countries. SWI claims to use only natural salt in its products.
Dead Sea salt is supposed to be safe for all ages. People who are pregnant or those who may become pregnant should avoid using this salt because of the minerals it contains. However, because many women use it as their main source of salt, many physicians recommend it to expectant mothers.
SWI says on its website that it works by removing “the harmful byproducts” of anaerobic bacteria living in the vagina. Because it has several minerals that are especially beneficial to the human body, SWI claims that its salt will help remove them from the vagina. But is this the case?
The only known study that SWI has conducted about salts Worldwide is what is known as a control study. This is a test to see if a product is effective in removing the harmful bacteria in a test group who will continue to use it after the control group stopped using it. Only when the results of the test group were positive was SWI able to claim that it is beneficial for preventing bacterial vaginosis.
This means that the control group did not benefit from the product because there were no actual beneficial changes from using it. Furthermore, the control group did not take advantage of the opportunity to get the control group to change its behavior in order to increase the value of the salt in the future. All that they did was to stop the use of their current salt.
Dead Sea salts, when used correctly, can help eliminate bad bacteria in the vagina. So, there are no reasons to be concerned about this product. It can be used by any person.
Aside from being beneficial for BV, SWI also claims that it helps strengthen the immune system. It has a low mineral content and is therefore said to have very little effect on the immune system. It is unlikely that this will work as a cure for BV as it does not affect the main cause of the condition.
What about SWI’s Dead Sea salts for BV? Even though SWI claims that it has these salts, it did not make any clinical studies about their ability to relieve BV symptoms. In fact, there is not even any clinical evidence of its ability to kill the harmful bacteria in the vagina.
Another important point to note about SWI’s salts Worldwide is that they do not come with any brand names. Unlike other products that contain Dead Sea salts, SWI salts are called “generic.” Their salt products are not subject to any rules that specify what a company can put on the label.
There are many salts worldwide that have different minerals in them. But the components that are contained in SWI salts are the same. So, SWI should have not been allowed to have brand names if it wanted to sell salts Worldwide.
The Dead Sea salt for BV claims of SWI are misleading. It is important to remember that companies do not have to follow strict regulations regarding the use of their products. They can be called anything they want and they can market their products under any name.
