Moor Mud is a therapy quality peat** an organic substance, product of natural decomposition of multitudes of plants under special conditions. Unlike other mud used in the spa industry, this Moor Mud contains virtually no clay (less than 3%) and consists of organic residue of herbs, flowers and grasses. Over a period of thousands of years, this residue was transformed into a fine paste that easily dissolves in the water, has unusual concentration of bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones and fatty acids in a molecular form that is easy for the human skin to absorb. Its actions are thermo-physical, biochemical, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and has natural antibiotics. Because peat has chelatic properties (it binds heavy metal isotopes) it is a very strong natural detoxifier.

As the majority old, well-known European Spas, Héviz Spa started to develop in the 19th century. It came to prominence after World War I. Ever since, Héviz Spa has been the most important medicinal spa in Hungary and is visited by tens of thousands of patients every year. The lake’s water temperature ranges from 74F in winter to 95F in summer. The curative effect of the mud is especially strong. The mud type falls between the purely inorganic clay and the organic fango, with high organic content – beneficial humic and fulvic acids. It contains 20% of organic components, so its heat storing capacity is very high. Main components are the decomposed different plant fibers and minerals from natural springs. Its inorganic part consists mainly of calcium and magnesium carbonates and sulphates.

St. Andrew’s State Hospital for Rheumatology and Rehabilitation, Héviz Moor Mud is used in packs for pain management and injury rehabilitation and treatment of chronic rheumatic diseases. The humic and fulvic acids are beneficial in skin detoxification and cleansing. Bio-available minerals: Calcium, Magnesium and Sulfides help to re-mineralize tissues.**
