All about shungite water

Всё о шунгитовой воде

Shungite water is called water infused with natural mineral shungite. This is truly a unique mineral got its name from the village of Shunga in Karelia, where the only field shungita rocks. Healing springs located near deposits of shungite has long been known. In 1714 Peter I founded in these parts the resort, which was named Marcial waters.

Briefly about shungit

Shungite is a biologically active organo-mineral complexes. In its structure it takes place between amorphous carbon and crystalline graphite, a carbon (30 wt. %), quartz (45 masses. % ), and silicate mica (about 20 masses. %). The presence in shungite compounds of iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, chromium and many other elements allow it to be used as a natural mineralizer water. However, the most surprising and valuable property of shungite is not the case.

Much later the discovery of deposits of shungite and start its active use in clinical practice scientists found the contents of fullerenes in shungite – special spherical hollow molecules of carbon, with strong sorption and bactericidal properties, as well as positively affecting most systems of the body.

The use of shungite in water treatment

High sorption qualities of shungite allows to use it as sorbent for waste waters purification from organic and chlorinated organic substances (oil, pesticides, phenols, surfactants, dioxins, etc.). Shungite absorbs on its surface up to 95% of pollutants, including organochlorine compounds, phenols, dioxins, heavy metals, radionuclides, etc., removes the turbidity and chromaticity of water.

Adsorption activity of shungite for phenol is 14 mg/g; thermolysis pitches – 20 mg/g; oil products more – 40 mg/g. In model experiments it was shown that in water containing heavy metals (copper, cadmium, mercury, lead), boron, phenol and benzene concentrations in 10–50 times greater than the MPC, after the treatment by shungite, the content of these pollutants is reduced below the normative documents levels.

In addition, shungite due to sorption activity in relation to pathogenic microflora, has expressed bactericidal properties against pathogenic saprophytes and simple. Especially effective and technologically justified is the use in the filtering systems of the mixtures of shungite with activated carbon and/or zeolite.

Useful properties of shungite water

By filtering the water through shungite filter, and especially in the insistence of water, shungit water is transformed into a unique molecular-colloidal solution of hydrated fullerenes, which has a healing effect in a number of diseases:

  • anemia;
  • allergies of various types;
  • bronchial asthma;
  • gastritis;
  • dyspepsia;
  • kidney disease;
  • liver disease;
  • diabetes;
  • cholelithiasis, gallbladder disease;
  • a weakened immune system;
  • liver disease;
  • diseases of the pancreas;
  • respiratory diseases;
  • cardiovascular disease;
  • cholecystitis;
  • chronic fatigue syndrome.

Shungite water has strong anti-inflammatory action. It is commonly used to care for problem skin, prone to inflammation and irritation, as well as a wide range of skin diseases. Gargling shungite water cures a sore throat and tonsillitis, rinsing the gums-periodontal disease, stomatitis and other diseases of the oral cavity. Compresses with shungite water is indicated for burns, abrasions, cuts, long nonhealing wounds.

The use of shungite water as drinking renders preventive and curative effect on people. It improves the composition and the formula of blood, normalizes metabolism and the functioning of the kidneys, liver and the gastrointestinal tract, strengthens the immune system and energy status of the organism, accelerates the rehabilitation process after surgery, trauma or strenuous physical loads, slows down the development of aging, improves health, increases vitality and performance.

Daily washing with shungite water smoothes the skin, increases its elasticity, gives the skin a healthy look. This simple procedure with regular will help to get rid of acne and inflammation, relieves flaking, redness. Regular rinsing with this water hair adds Shine and softness and reduces hair loss, strengthens the roots, eliminates dandruff.

To improve overall health very useful shungite baths. They relieve fatigue, increase efficiency, provide energy, improve blood circulation. To prepare shungite baths has its own characteristics: mineral or granules are placed in a cloth bag and then the bag is lowered into a bath for 10 minutes.

How to prepare shungite water?

For this you need to filter tap water using any of the filters for purification of drinking water. Then fill with water a glass or enamel container. Pre-rinsed shungite chips in a container with water at the rate of 100 g of the breed in 1l of water. Infuse the water for 2 days. Then carefully (without shaking) to drain to the feed tank for use, leaving the bottom layer of water with a volume of 0.5 liters. Water in this layer contains impurities and should be filtered through several layers of cheesecloth and use.

Are there any contraindications to the use of shungite water?

The use of shungite water has almost no contraindications and is recommended for the prevention of many diseases. Side effects in the treatment of shungite water is not revealed. The use of shungite water is not an indication for cancellation of other drugs. Shungite water is not toxic, after contact with mucous membranes without causing irritation. But there are a number of diseases for which shungite water must be used carefully. It's malignant and benign neoplasms, cardiovascular and chronic inflammatory diseases in the acute phase, a tendency to thrombosis. So before you start drinking shungite water to people who have multiple health problems, better to consult a doctor who is familiar with the action of this mineral.
