A treasure which is a million years old and a protected treasure from the deep
The Bad Elster thermal hot spring is a raw material in nature – primal, natural, pure, beneficial, unique in their combination in Germany and worldwide.
The thermal sale water is a mixture of water that is millions of years old (1.5 million and older) and from the Ice Age (27-37 thousand years old) which had never been discovered in this form and had not been scientifically analysed.
Prof. Karl-Ludwig Resch (M.D.) explains: “Even since the Middle Ages, the positive, health-promoting effect of salt has been known for external application. These discoveries are backed up by studies in the natural sciences. Experience the special effect of the Bad Elster thermal salt water during a stay at Bad Elster Salt Water Hot Springs in Albert Baths.“
Bad Elster hot spring salt water– a treasure from the Elster Valley
Bad Elster Salt Water Hot Springs are supplied by salt water spring dug in 2009 in the Elster Valley. This is the heritage of an enclosed primal sea that has been hidden for millions of years and laid protected deep in the womb of the earth. What was discovered at a depth of 1,200 m has turned out to be a real treasure from the Elster Valley – the Bad Elster salt water hot spring.
Glauber’s salt – a spring with an unusual composition
The salt water spring includes highly mineralised thermal water, which is unusual in terms of its composition and concentration. Due to the very high sodium sulphate content, Bad Elster thermal salt water is considered a Glauber salt source. Another component is cooking salt (sodium chloride). In addition, there are many elements that naturally occur on the earth such as calcium and magnesium, hydrogen carbonate, silicates, metals, rare earths and many trace elements. Nature gave many of these elements and compounds a high level of significance for their structure and functions in the body, e.g. for the acid/base balance, digestion, the composition and the excitability of nerves and muscles, and much more.
Natural material from nature
The highly saturated thermal salt water is conveyed through Bad Elster with a salt water content of 22% and a temperature of 42°C.
