Cell salts also known as tissue salts, tissue remedies or mineral salts.

Sometimes referred to as a ‘homeopathic vitamin’ as they are used more in that manner. The lower the potency, the more the remedy effects the physical body.

Cell salts are prepared in the 6x potency.

Dr. Schuessler, a chemist and physicist, discovered if the human body was reduce to ash that these 12 constituents would remain. These are present in our body to function optimally. Our cells are like a universe within themselves. Together our body comprised of our cells is magical.

Sometimes our lifestyle, nutrition, stress can deplete our body. Even though we eat or supplement, our body may not be absorbing and assimilating the nutrients. Our cellular balance becomes disturbed.

Cell salts are homeopathic preparations that work on the physical level but are absorbed at the cellular level, not the digestive level. 

Healing and balancing deficiencies. Restoring enamel, strengthening bone, elasticity, reducing inflammation, balancing fluids, colds, calming the nerves etc.
