What are Schuessler Cell Salts?

Did you know Schuessler cell salts, also called tissue salts, include the 12 most essential minerals found in our body and are involved in the healthy functioning of all our core organs and body systems?

The set of 12 natural remedies was discovered about 150 years ago and comes highly recommended by alternative and complementary health practitioners around the world today. By supporting the body’s mineral balance on a cellular level, Schuessler tissue salts help with a multitude of everyday health concerns, increased energy, less stress and anxiety, and more. Find out how!

The 12 Cell Salts by Dr. Schuessler

The 12 cell salts also known as Schuessler salts, tissue salts, or mineral salts were first identified by German physician Dr. Wilhelm H. Schuessler (1821-1898) who studied ash residue of human cells and discovered that human cells contain 12 mineral salts that are key to our health.

Every organ in the body is composed of cells, and healthy cells are the foundation of our well-being. Cell salts include forms of calcium, potassium, sodium, iron, magnesium, silica, chloride, phosphate, and sulfate — also known as electrolytes — all necessary for optimal health and ease.

Many of the health problems we experience can occur because our body is deprived of one or more of the minerals contained in the tissue salts. The use of tissues salts helps to rebuild organ and tissue cells and works to balance your body while helping you feel more naturally well and energized.

A Popular & Safe Wellness System

The cell salts are a popular and safe wellness system worldwide. Prepared as micro doses and absorbed by your mucous membranes — not your digestive system, they are gentle yet effective, and their benefits are quickly available to the body. This is why they act on the cellular level, come recommended by natural health practitioners, and are loved by home prescribers.

At HomeopathyStore, we offer the 12 cell salts as liquid oral sprays. Our high-quality AnnaKare oral sprays are LACTOSE FREE, SUGAR FREE, GLUTEN FREE, AND VEGAN. They contain only the minerals, pure water, and organic alcohol and are made here in the U.S.

The Benefits of Cell Salts

The cell salts can be grouped in 4 segments: 1) 3 Calcium salts, 2) 3 Potassium salts, 3) 3 Sodium salts, and 4) Iron, Magnesium, and Silica. They support — and this is only a compressed list of benefits — healthy bones, teeth, and veins; mucous membranes, nerves, energy, and sleep. They are beneficial to the digestive system, pancreas, kidneys, and establish water-electrolyte balance within the body. Cell salts nourish the blood, muscles, skin, hair, and nails.

Below is a more detailed list, but it is important to know that the benefits of the 12 cell salts go even further.
