How do mud packs work?
The beneficial effects of mud packs have been known since the 19th century. Especially the valuable ingredients of the mud can effectively support the human organism. Mud packs with natural mud contain humic acid as the main ingredient, but also important trace elements such as zinc, iron, copper and selenium and minerals such as magnesium, calcium and potassium.
The special nutrient humic acid has the following effects on the body:
- Acts as an antioxidant and binds free radicals produced in the body.
- Serves to maintain the chemical balance of our body.
- Promotes the enzyme activity of important metabolic processes and cell synthesis.
- Stimulates the immune system and stimulates the formation of antibodies and the activity of white blood cells.
- Has an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect and makes it difficult for harmful bacteria to multiply.
The ingredients contained in the peat are transferred to the skin via a fabric-permeable fleece during mud packs and can thus penetrate the body. Mud packs can be warmed up to the desired temperature with a suitable heat carrier (water bath). They are then applied to the part of the body to be treated and gradually release the stored heat into the body. This has an effect deep into the body, so that the metabolism is stimulated and the muscles are relaxed.
