Elite Shungite Water Purification

Shungite in a water jug

We choose only to use and recommend Elite Shungite for water purification. Elite Shungite has the highest potential in purifying water, with the highest Fullerene content at approximately 98%.

Our Next-Gen Premium Elite Powder Capsules for making the purest water are here, and our Premium Elite Water Lits are here.

Shungite Water Purification

Much research has been done, especially in Russia, on the benefits of Shungite water. We have used Shungite water for many years and agree it benefits us. We have a Shungite and Zeolite Water Filter and Shungite Shower Heads installed in our showers. We also use Elite shungite in our baths. It’s a beautiful way to rebalance and relax! We have had many comments from friends and family about the water’s softness and excellent taste. It seems to be fresher and tastes immensely better than plain tap water! We use  Elite Shungite (it has the highest amounts of Fullerenes, which help to re-energize the water).

Shungite can turn badly contaminated or poor-quality water into clean, healthy water. When placed in water, the fullerenes in shungite attract and neutralize waterborne contaminants. Shungite is like a vacuum because the fullerenes are hollow! Shungite has been used commercially in Russia as a water purification medium since the 1990s.

Shungite can clean water from almost all organic compounds (including pesticides). Among the contaminants it will remove are bacteria (and other microbes), nitrates, heavy metals, pesticides, volatile organics, pharmaceuticals, various chlorine compounds, and copper!

One of the reasons shungite can neutralize contaminants is because the fullerenes within its composition can hold a tremendous amount of hydrogen.  The stone has been documented to have a high oxidative/reductive capacity. Shungite water is known for its antibacterial properties, and when you place Elite with shards in the water, they enrich the water with fullerenes.

Shungite water also has powerful antioxidant properties. It is suggested that digesting shungite water provides a positive therapeutic effect and helps ease many conditions, including skin-related problems, chronic respiratory issues, headaches, and aches in joints and muscles, as well as helping the digestive system. We suggest drinking one glass daily if you are in generally good health or up to three glasses if you have conditions you are trying to work with.

Experiments were undertaken with Shungite that was introduced into water contaminated with Streptococcus A and D. The results of these experiments showed that after half an hour, the Shungite had reduced the concentration of Streptococcus D in the water by the factor of 135 and Streptococcus A by the factor of 900!

Research Paper:

When you delve into research on Shungite and water, the most relevant and thorough paper was written by Ignat Ignatov1* and Oleg Mosin2, two Russian Scientists who conducted extensive research on Shungite. Following is the first part of their paper with a link to the complete work below:

1. Introduction
Shungite and zeolite are the new natural mineral sorbents (NMS) generation. Shungite is an intermediate form between the amorphous carbon and the graphite crystal containing carbon (30%), silica (45%), and silicate mica (about 20%) (Khavari-Khorasani & Murchison, 1979). Shungite carbon is a fossilized organic material of sea bottom Precambrian sediments containing a high carbonisation level containing fullerene-like regular structures. Shungite got its name from the village of Shunga in Karelia (Russian Federation), located on the shore of Onezhskoe Lake, which is the only mineral Zazhoginsky deposit of shungites on the territory of the Russian Federation—the total shungite reserves of the Zazhoginsky deposit amount to approximately 35 million tons of shungite. The plant production capacity for the mining and processing shungite makes up 200 thousand tons of shungite per year. Zeolites are the alumosilicate members of the family of microporous solids known as “molecular sieves”, named for their ability to sort molecules based primarily on a size exclusion process selectively. Natural zeolites form when volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Zeolites also crystallize in post-depositional environments over thousands to millions of years in shallow marine basins. Naturally occurring zeolites are rarely pure and are contaminated to varying degrees by other minerals, metals, quartz, or other zeolites. For this reason, naturally occurring zeolites are excluded from many important commercial applications where uniformity and purity are essential.  contd below –

When you choose shungite for water purification, please remember spheres and other shaped shungite pieces are not suitable as polishing and other manufacturing techniques reduce their purification ability.
