The natural mineral used in health resort treatment is salty sulphide-hydrogen water, containing no less than 1mg of sulphur per litre (determined iodometrically as hydrogen sulphide). This medicinal water contains: divalent sulphur, hydrogen sulphide ions, colloidal sulphur, hydrogen sulphide, calcium and magnesium salts and chlorides, iodides, bromides, selenium and other micronutrients. It is a unique composition of valuable health ingredients that cannot be artificially created in the laboratory. Sulphur compounds contained in natural therapeutic waters penetrate the skin into the body. This is facilitated by slight erythema after a sulphide bath caused by the expansion of the skin's blood vessels. The absorption of valuable components is additionally favoured by the so-called salt coat - salt crystals that change the electric charge of the skin. Thanks to this, the excitability of nerve endings is also reduced, which results in pain relief. The absorbed hydrogen sulphide generates biologically active polysulphides that are deposited in the skin. Polysulphides gradually release into the bloodstream and pass through the blood vessels to the periarticular tissues. They take an active part in the synthesis of glutathione and sulphhydryl groups. In many diseases, including decreased immunity, degenerative and inflammatory diseases of the joints and spine, as well as in liver and kidney diseases, there is a deficiency of glutathione and sulphhydryl groups. Treatment with sulphide waters of sufficiently high concentration compensates this deficit. The absorbed sulphur compounds are involved in the synthesis of chondroitiniar acid, the main building component of articular cartilage. They also participate in the synthesis of endogenous, and essential for the body sulphide amino acids: methionine and cysteine. Under the influence of sulphur compounds, the capillaries dilate, the previously inactive vessels are opened, resulting in a long-lasting improvement of microcirculation. This applies, first of all, to periarticular tissues, which favours the resorption of inflammatory foci. The systemic action of sulphide waters has also been proven. They act to stimulate the adrenal cortex, which results in anti-inflammatory effects. They lower cholesterol, triglycerides, sugar and uric acid. Sulphide waters are also effective in the treatment of skin diseases. The exfoliating effect of sulphide waters is caused by softening the epidermis and dissolving the intercellular substance. This results in skin thoroughly cleansed of sebum, bacteria and psoriatic lesions. Renewing (keratoplastic) properties of sulphide waters are conducive to the creation of a flexible and cohesive epidermis. Sulphide waters change the oxidation-reduction potential of the skin, which is important in the treatment of skin diseases, especially psoriasis. The effect of sulphur is related to its influence on the cell's respiratory processes and the synthesis of nucleic acids. This is conducive to tissue renewal. Sulphur, through sulphhydryl groups and disulphide bonds, has a positive effect on the keratin of the epidermis, hair and nails. Sulphurous waters change the pH of the skin to slightly acidic, which is beneficial for the body. Medications produced by the licensed Pharmaceutical Company SULPHUR ZDRÓJ from Busko-Zdrój:
contain active substance - sulphide brine from the Solec Shaft boring of the health resort Solec-Zdrój. Sp.J. M.Cz. Sztuk ph. +48 41 377-60-61.
The sulphide brine from the Solec Shaft boring is extracted from a depth of 170m and contains sulphide and polysulphuric ions, divalent sulphur and, moreover, chloride, bromide, iodide, boron ions and many other elements such as: calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, sodium. The high concentration of divalent sulphur compounds (137 milligrams in one litre of water) and high mineralization make these waters the most effective in Europe and one of the best in the world! The healing effect of this sulphide brine has been confirmed in numerous clinical trials ordered by the Pharmaceutical Company SULPHUR ZDRÓJ from Busko as part of the drug registration process. These studies confirmed the desirability of using these medications in each of the mentioned indications.
