Tissue Salts are minerals which support the healing processes in the body by regulating mineral levels in the cells. They are the 12 vital minerals that the body needs daily to support cell metabolism and ensure that the minerals which the body ingests are evenly distributed. They were developed, promoted and successfully put into practice as a therapeutic system by the German physician, Dr Schuessler at the end of the 19th Century.
Tissue Salts are minerals that stimulate cell metabolism. Common mineral tablets such as magnesium or calcium have similar properties, but they simply fill up the body’s mineral reserves. Tissue Salts do not need to be broken down in the digestive tract before being assimilated, which allows them to be extremely effective.
Tissue Salts provide the cells with the essential nutrients that they lack; proper mineral balance in necessary for normal cell function. When the blood lacks the necessary nutrients, the body becomes prone to illness. Tissue Salts improve the overall absorption of nutrients ingested and encourage overall good health and wellbeing.
Lack of a particular tissue salt in the cell arises from stress, a poor diet, bacteria, viruses, pollution or injury. This may cause a blockage in the cell’s regulation which can be corrected by providing the correct tissue salts.
