The fango healing clay from fangocur contains a very unique mix of valuable ingredients. The healing activity is down to the volcanic makeup of the clay – it's a real benefit for the body.
What exactly are the unique ingredients of the invaluable fango healing clay from fangocur and how do they affect the body? Many customers would like to know the answers to such questions – that's why we chose it as the topic for this newsletter.
The main ingredient of fango healing clay is silica (SiO2). Silica is a not insignificant part of the Earth's crust; in addition, it's an essential fundamental substance for every organism. There is no living thing that can exist without silica. It plays a role in the makeup of the connective tissue and blood vessels. As a person ages the amount of silica in the body falls, an this can result in decreased fascial tone, tendon strength and muscle power. The intake of the substance can be rejuvinating for the body as well as improving function.
The additional important ingredients are listed below according to the amount contained.
Fe2O3: Iron (III) oxide (magnetite) improves the health of the intestinal lining and fights intestinal parasites. Iron is an essential component of haemoglobin, a protein which is responsible for the transport of oxygen in the blood. Iron is also important in cancer prevention as it strengthens immune function.
Al2O3: Aluminium oxide is an important catalyst in cellular function, primarily those in the intestines. It helps to regulate nutrient absorption.
SO3: Sulphur (or sulfur) is essential for life – it is present in two amino acids. In its elemental form it is not at all harmful to the body; on the contrary, sulphur has anti-inflammatory effects which are important in the treatment of tuberculosis and chronic bronchitis as well as arthritis, gout and eczema.
TiO2: Titanium dioxide (titania) aids in regulation of metabolism.
K2O: Potassium dioxide (potassium) is vital in maintaining osmotic pressure in the cells (important in the regulation of what can and what cannot pass through the cell wall). Saltatory conduction in the heart is especially dependent on potassium, as it is essential to normal muscle and nerve function
Na2O: Sodium oxide is the most common cation (having a positive electrical charge) in living organism and plays an important role in the maintenance of cellular balance.
CaO: Calcium oxide (lime) is derived from calcium carbonate, a compound essential for life. It is important in muscle function (including the heart) and the building of bones, and is an essential component in the nucleus of cells.
MgO: Magnesium oxide (magnesia) is important in muscular and nervous function and is also important in cellular function (especially brain cells). Magnesium activates a metabolic enzyme which is essential for digestion, stimulates gall bladder function and is important in disease resistance.
Fango healing clay also contains several essential (i.e. necessary for life) trace elements:
manganese (oxygen transport in the body), copper (regulates the uptake of iron, component of immune cells, oxygen transport, important component of enzymes), strontium (bone construction), barium (importance in human health not determined, important in the growth of plants), lead (an important trace element, not essential), chromium (plays a role in the maintenance of blood sugar and cholesterol levels in the blood), vanadium (essential for all living cells, important for the maintenance of bones and teeth, helps in regulating blood lipid levels and decreasing blood sugar levels), lithium (important for the nervous system)
