* MAIN BEER SPA INGREDIENTS:
CZECH BREWER'S YEAST, which has been used for curative purposes since ancient times, has a long tradition in Czech medicine. Brewer’s yeast provides essential B vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins and contributes to the overall regeneration of our skin, in warm water opening skin pores and hence removing harmful substances from the body (an effect similar system to saunas). Scientists concur that brewer’s yeast contains more vitamins, trace elements and amino acids than previously thought. Brewer's yeast is a fantastic source of nourishment for the skin, smoothing wrinkles and providing overall skin hydration.
Brewer’s yeast is also one of the richest sources of organic iron, essential amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, phosphatides, sterols, glycides, enzymes and other bioactive nutrients. It is a rich source of B vitamins, including pangamic acid - vitamin B15, minerals (e.g. calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sodium) and trace elements (iron, iodine, copper, zinc and manganese). Brewer's yeast helps to heal inflammation of the liver and is ideal for increased physical and mental exercise and sport. The B vitamins found in brewer's yeast promote digestion and metabolism and help in the treatment of chronic arthritis and cardiovascular disease. They assist in the regeneration of intestinal microflora, which are essential for maintaining a strong immune system.
In addition to a small amount of alcohol, Czech Krušovice® beer contains beneficial substances such as vitamins (thiamine and riboflavin), folic acid, carbohydrates and proteins. Drinking beer during the beer spa promotes mental relaxation.
CZECH ŽATEC HOPS are an herb which, when added to the bath, produce a strong energizing effect, contribute to overall regeneration and uniquely complement the effects of brewer's yeast. Hops dissolved in the beer bath release aromatic oils that provide a pleasant aroma. Women can use hops during the bath as a highly effective natural peeling.
THE HISTORY OF BEER SPAS
The first spas appeared as far back as ancient Egypt and China, where hot springs were used for treating diseases, improving immunity and for personal hygiene. The first beer spa was recorded approximately 2,000 years ago.
Bathing in beer, including consumption of the beverage, has long been used in folk medicine; our grandmothers and great-grandmothers recommended brewer's yeast, which has been used for medicinal purposes since ancient times.
