One of the most unusual and rare natural materials, SHUNGITE was formed more than 2 billion years ago. This powerful healing mineral comes from ancient deposits near Lake Onega in the Shun’ga area of the Karelia region of Russia. It is the only place where Shungite is mined in its pure form.
According to historical records, dating back to the 1700s, locals have been using Shungite as a water purifier and as a healing substance – for burns, insect bites, small wounds, to get rid of rashes and other skin problems, and to ease aches and pains. They bathed in it, they drank it, and they cooked with it.
Since 1990s there has been lots of published research about the benefits of Shungite - numerous books, papers, studies, and articles. Even conferences, dedicated specifically to this incredible "Mineral of the 21st Century", as Shungite is often called.
It is now widely accepted that Shungite possesses a multitude of properties beneficial to one’s health - the ability to kill pathogenic bacteria, remove pesticides and pharmaceuticals, absorb from water various other organic and inorganic toxins as well as heavy metals.
Adding Shungite to water enriches it with oxygen, and fills it with calcium, magnesium and quite a few other essential mineral components. And that's why we have decided to make LIVING WATER KITS that can be used at home and on the go.
WHEN YOU PUT SHUNGITE STONES IN WATER, YOU CREATE, WITHOUT ANY HUMAN INTERVENTION OR ADDED CHEMICALS, A NATURAL “REMEDY” - A MINERAL SOLUTION WITH UNIQUE HEALING QUALITIES
Shungite owes these amazing properties to its complex chemical composition as well as carbon-based Fullerene internal structure.
WHAT ARE FULLERENES?
The discovery of Fullerenes was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1998. A Fullerene is a molecule consisting of carbon atoms. Sometimes called a Buckyball, it resembles a soccer ball and is named after the famous architect Buckminster Fuller because its form reminds of the pattern of the geodesic dome he created.
These unique carbon-based molecules have strong anti-microbial and antibacterial properties as well as a proven unique ability to act as long-lasting antioxidants.
When placed in water the Fullerenes in Shungite attract and neutralize waterborne contaminants. They are able to normalize cellular metabolism, increase enzyme activity and the stability of a cell. Fullerenes identify and neutralize the excess of free radicals, preventing cell damage.
In short, these molecules are largely responsible for the healing properties of Shungite and its effectiveness for water purification and restructuring. Fullerenes are still being researched by the scientists around the world while being used in such diverse industries as chemistry, physics, medicine, agriculture and nanotechnology.
INSIDE OUR BODIES FULLERENES FIGHT FREE RADICALS BEHAVING AS A POWERFUL AND LONG-LASTING ANTIOXIDANT
Fullerenes are not abundant in all Shungite. The highest concentrations are found only in Elite Shungite, and to a much lesser degree in Black Shungite.
Elite (or Noble) Shungite is the rarest form of this mineral - it is found in less than 1% of all Shungite deposits. The most potent and efficient form of Shungite, Elite has a much higher percentage of organic carbon (up to 98%) with significantly more Fullerenes than lower grades. It naturally helps to neutralize harmful contaminants, purify water and air and provide powerful antioxidants, and eliminates bad odor.
SHUNGITE WATER SCIENCE SHOWS THAT FULLERENES ARE EFFECTIVE EVEN IN VERY SMALL DOSES AND THE BENEFITS CAN LAST FOR MONTHS.
This is why our LIVING WATER KITS contains only Elite Shungite. Even if you do not use our products, we highly recommend Elite, not black, Shungite for making high quality, effective, pure and enriched water.
HOW CAN YOU USE SHUNGITE WATER
In Russia, wellness spas routinely use Shungite water for skin treatments, baths, and making herbal teas.
Shungite and Plants
Because it is rich in microelements and bioactive components, for a very long time Shungite has been successfully utilized in sustainable farming. And you will be amazed to see what it does to your cut flowers!
SHUNGITE WATER, FILLED WITH ESSENTIAL MINERALS - PHOSPHORUS, COPPER, ZINC, CALCIUM AND OTHERS - IS VERY BENEFICIAL FOR PLANTS, BOTH IN YOUR HOUSE AND, IF YOU ARE LUCKY TO HAVE ONE, IN YOUR GARDEN
In Karelia for centuries Shungite has been used to naturally heal animals. Today, lots of empirical data, as well as numerous scientific studies, confirm that animals react very positively to Shungite.
ONE OF THE WELL-KNOWN FACTS ABOUT SHUNGITE WATER IS THAT MOST ANIMALS REALLY LIKE HOW IT TASTES, AND AS A RESULT DRINK MUCH MORE WATER THAN THEY NORMALLY WOULD
Because animals are especially vulnerable to environmental pollution - lawn, garden and household chemicals - exposure to these harmful substances can increase the risk of many diseases.
One way to mitigate dangerous effects of hazardous chemicals is to keep your pets hydrated. Shungite-infused water is a simple, but very effective solution.
HOW TO MAKE SHUNGITE WATER WITH OUR LIVING WATER KIT
It can’t be any easier if you use our Living Water Kit. We have preconditioned the Shungite so you can use it straight out of the package. We have also included 3 pouches that should last you long time.
If you should decide to use black Shungite stones for making your water, here are your instructions on how to do it:
- Black Shungite often has lots of black residue after it has been processed to make gravel. Rinse the residue off the stones under running water, do not use soap. You can rub them with your hands or use a brush to remove any fine black powder.
- Place the rinsed stones in a enameled pan. Cover with fresh cold water and bring to a lite boil uncovered for 30 minutes. Drain and leave to cool.
- Place the boiled Shungite in a glass, ceramic or enamel container and pour cold water over it
- Use 200gr (approx 7 oz) of regular Shungite per 1 liter (2.1pints) of water
- Leave the Shungite water sit at least overnight, or up to three days for maximum effect
- Sediment in the water is normal and harmless, just let it settle down before you pour
- You can refill the Shungite water container with fresh water when it gets low
HOW LONG WILL THE STONES LAST?
According to Regina Martino, a French Bioenergetics researcher who has been conducting experiments on Shungite since 2016, it will keep indefinitely.
If the water is really polluted, the pebbles will pick up such impurities as chlorine, nitrates, and fluoride, so take them out of the water once a month or so, rinse under running water (no soap!), let them dry and put back into the container.
If you incorporate at least one of our suggestions in your daily life, you will understand why we love this healing mineral so much and use it so often.
