Schuessler Tissue Salts
Q. What are Tissue Salts?
A. Tissue Salts are homeopathically prepared minerals which support 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 in food 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
Q. What’s the difference between minerals and tissue salts?
A. Tissue Salts are homeopathically prepared minerals and stimulate cell metabolism while 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.
