Shungite is a unique mineral stone which is black in appearance and looks similar to anthracite coal in its purest form and is only found in one place on Earth, the Republic of Karelia in Russia near the Finnish border.
Shungite is the only mineral rock in the world that contains fullerenes – a newly discovered form of the existence of carbon in the form of spherical ions. When interacting with water Shungite releases curative complexes of fullerenes into water-
Shungite fullerenes are the strongest known antioxidants on Earth!
The importance of fullerenes can be provided by the fact that in 1996 the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Professor Robert F. Curl Jr., Professor Sir Harold W. Kroto and Professor Richard E. Smalley for the discovery of fullerenes.
Shungite has the ability to clean water from almost of all organic compounds (including pesticides), heavy metals,chlorine, Fluoride, bacteria and harmful micro-organisms.
Water from lake Onega in Russia , can be used directly for drinking without any prior cleaning! It is the result of thousands of years of interaction with Shungite.
Commercial use of Shungite water filters started back in 1990's, during that time there were many conducted experiments and studies on Shungite’s influence on the human body. Scientists came to conclusion that Shungite water is absolutely non-toxic. It was also proven that Shungite water can be used without any prior boiling! as the water has strong antibacterial ability. During these experiments water was contaminated with streptococcus of groups A and D. the research showed that after only half an hour in Shungite water the concentration of streptococcus group D decreased by the factor of 100 and group A by the factor of 900!
Shungite cleanses water of various chlorine compounds, nitrates, copper, magnesium, iron, eliminates bad taste and odours, heavy metals, and also enriches drinking water in potassium, calcium and magnesium salts .
The chemical composition of Shungite is:
• Carbon - upto 95%;
• Silicon - from upto 60%;
• Aluminium - 4%;
• Ferrum - 3.5%;
• Magnesium - 3.5%;
• Potassium - 1.5%;
• Sulphur - 1.2%;
• Calcium - to 0.58%;
• Phosphorus - up to 0.34%;
and many other macro and micronutrients.
Shungite water can be used to treat a number of diseases and has an antibacterial effect which can help you disinfect surfaces, killing bacteria and getting rid of mold and fungi making it a good tool when it comes to house cleaning. It is effectively used for wounds treatment and also relieves itching and inflammation after insect bites. We recommend washing your vegetables and fruit with Shungite water to keep them fresh longer.
Shungite is also believed to aid the treatment of the following illnesses:
Allergies, allergic dermatitis, Tonsillitis, Angina, Sore throat, Joint pain, Brucellosis, Colitis, Cold sores, Gingivitis, Headache, Foot fungus, Dysentery, Disinfection, Skin fungal infections, Toothache, Laryngitis, Stuffiness, running nose, Otitis, High blood pressure, Diarrhoea, teenage Acne, Chronic tonsillitis, burns,Cuts, wounds, scratches, Eczema, Psoriasis.
