Torf Czech Natural Moor Mud for Bath or Bodywrap
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, Torf Moor Mud contains virtually no clay (less then 3%) and consists of organic residue of herbs, flowers and grasses. Over 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. Think of it as a plant extract not from just one plant, but hundreds that reflects environment of Earth 10.000 years ago, without present day pollution. Its uncanny ability to heal, nourish and detoxify has been observed by people for millennia and used scientifically in European Spas for well over a century. It is used not only to beautify, but also to cure multitude of ailments from mobility problems, arthritis, and hormonal imbalance to post surgery recovery and muscle recovery in sport medicine. Its actions are thermo-physical, biochemical, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and natural antibiotics*. Because peat has chelatic properties (it binds heavy metal isotopes) it is a very strong natural detoxifier*.

Pure Torf Balneo Peat (Mud)
Our bodies are being constantly attacked by toxins present in our environment. Due to overwhelming exposure, prolong stress or a weakened health state, toxins do not metabolize properly, but are being stored in body and body fat layers. When detoxification is limited, the body burden of chemicals accumulates further and disrupts biological processes. Regular removal of toxins from our body is essential as a high toxin load can cause many illnesses, chronic pains, low energy levels, skin problems, memory disruption, even cancer. However it is important not to rush the detox process, but to detoxify properly. Mobilized toxins can get into a blood stream and move to other parts of the body where they can be even more dangerous. Hot bath or sauna is one of the way how to detox more gradually. Adding Torf Moor Mud (BALNEO-Peat) to the bath water intensifies this process. It promotes sweating that mobilizes the toxins. It contains a high amount of humic & fulvic acids which are chelats. Chelats bind with heavy metals and other toxins and help to keep them away from the body tissues. Torf Moor Mud is not a typical clay based mud. It consists of 97% of decomposed botanicals, full of chelatic humic and fulvic acids, bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones and fatty acids. Unlike other muds and clays used in detox therapies (such as Bentonite clays), Moor mud contains virtually no aluminum oxide, a metal that is considered to be as harmful by many detox therapists.
Our Balneo peat bath is the finest grain of our peat. It is 100% natural, unaltered Balneo peat and therefore suitable for body masks or packs or poultice or as a base for mixing of different mud wraps or masks. Our peat for thick layer body pack is coarser as it helps to maintain thick layer in warm body pack, but it is not suitable for bath.
Torf Balneo peat is harvested from areas on the border of the national reserve. By default, this area is free of any industrial activity that could contaminate its surroundings. Also, as any product used in Balneo therapy, Balneo peat has to be tested and approved by appropriate authorities (Czech Ministry of Health – similar to FDA – tests fall under the Czech norm CSN 465730 – tests for levels of moisture, bacteria, fungi, yeasts, toxicity, and irritants). The approval consists of absence or acceptable levels of contaminants, approval of harvesting, handling, manufacturing and storing methods and peat’s suitability for therapy – chemical & microbiology tests.
