Torf Organic Hévíz Moor Mud is the very same mud used by Hévíz medicinal Spa Hospital (St. Andrew's State Hospital for Rheumatology and Rehabilitation). The warm and mineral rich waters and mud of Hévíz Lake have been known since Roman times. It is the largest thermal mineral spring lake in the world.
European Spas, in particular the Hévíz Spas started to develop in the 19th century. They came to prominence after World War I; since then, Hévíz Spa has been the most important medicinal spa in Hungary and is visited by tens of thousands of patients every year.
The lake's water temperature ranges from 74F in winter to 95F in summer. The curative effect of the mud is especially strong. The mud type falls between the purely inorganic clay and the organic fango, with high organic content containing beneficial humic & fulvic acids. It contains 20% organic components, so its heat storing capacity is very high. Main components are the decomposed different plant fibres and minerals from natural springs. Its inorganic part consists mainly of calcium and magnesium carbonates and sulphates.
