Shungite is a rare stone that was discovered in Karelia in Russia. The local residents were already aware of its powers. The water Shungite was found in was perfectly clean, and many that drank the water were healed of various illnesses and diseases. It is the only known natural material known to contain fullerenes, which are a special form of carbon containing powerful antioxidants. The scientists who discovered the fullerenes in Shungite received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1996. Shungite literally changes the structure of water, destroying bacteria and bringing healing properties. Scientists around the world are still exploring and studying Shungite trying to understand its unique properties.
Placing shungite in a glass or bottle of water before drinking will purify the water and has been known to cure many illnesses. Leaving Shungite in the water for just 30 minutes will kill bacteria. For best results, leave in the water for 2-3 hours. If you are using Shungite for its medicinal properties, leave in the water for 8-48 hours before drinking. Shungite can slow the activity of AIDS and can increase your immunity to illness. Shungite has been known to help with allergies, diabetes, colds, fatigue, kidney and liver diseases, asthma, headaches, skin conditions, cancer, insomnia, arthritis, and much more! The greatest water purifier, Shungite removes all impurities from water, including bacteria, fluoride, nitrates, microorganisms, and metals.
