Amber positively affects the body – it charges people with energy, makes skin healthy, young and velvety, strengthens blood vessels, stimulates movement of lymph and intercellular fluid.
AMBER | natural health
Amber is a natural stimulator with unique properties for renewal of people’s biofields, bringing static electricity charges to all vital organs and cells. The most important property of amber is its ability to clear pathologic electromagnetic fields of all kinds that are a cause of illnesses.
Scientists have researched that the amber powder biostimulates the skin cells, it can deep-clean the skin, enrich cells with oxygen and remove toxins, delay the skin ageing processes, normalise energetic processes in cells, pigment spots and spider veins, strengthen capillaries, eliminate inflammation processes, neutralise germs and viruses, stimulate hair growth and restore hair bulb functions.
Characteristic property of the Baltic ambers is free succinic acid. Its quantity in the structure is 3 to 8%. Most scientists researching ambers believe that succinic acid was characteristic of resin or juice excreted by ancient pines, from which succinite is formed.
Succinic acid is a dicarboxylic acid with four carbon atoms. Succinic acid is a specific natural biostimulator found in nature in plant and animal tissues, although its content is twice as low as in succinite. Succinic acid plays an important role in the body’s intermetabolic processes in the Krebs cycle, as well as in synthesis of haemoglobin (formation of haematin). In medicine, succinic acid and its derivatives are used as antioxylitic (sedative), spasmolytic, antimucus, antiphlogistic and antitumour agents. Succinic acid ability to suppress formation of tumours is probably related to its normalising effect on energy production processes in mitochondria. It is a natural substance providing strong recovery effect without causing side effects and addiction, a biostimulator having the ability to increase immunity and antioxidating properties. Succinic acid increases the muscle tonus. It plays an important role in delaying the clot formation processes in blood vessels. Succinic acid helps in inflammation and stress situations, positively influences functioning of intestinal tract, kidneys and other internal organs, stimulates energy production in cells, can effectively make free radicals harmless, neutralises significant amounts of poisons (including from smoking and alcohol), improves microcirculation in organs and tissues. Succinic acid increases the muscle tonus, it also plays an important role in delaying clot formation processes in blood vessels, helps in case of inflammation processes. Succinic acid also supports health of ligaments, cartilages in joints, helps make more flexible joint movements. Using succinic acid, body cells are saturated with oxygen ten times more intensively. Succinic acid has an ability of mobilizing against damaged cells, restoring their activity and functions, passing healthy cells.
Succinic acid is one of the rare agents slowing down the ageing processes – scientists declare that regular intake of succinic acid is much more efficient than coenzyme Q10, and this preparation is at least 10 times cheaper.
Succinic acid is produced industrially by melting ambers. It crystallises from gases emitted in process of melting, but in human body succinic acid is formed by metabolism. Our bodies produce up to 200 mg of succinic acid daily which is necessary for restoring their immunity and also use it for their own needs. In our bodies, succinic acid is responsible for energetic exchange, therefore, physical, mental and emotional activities lead to deficit of the succinic acid that must be replenished.
Blackcurrants, sea-buckthorns, gooseberries, grapes, beet juice, rhubarbs are the richest natural sources of succinic acid.
Amber is an organic mineral, and its reserves are mostly located in the Baltic Sea region. They have formed from Succinite pine resin. Gemmologists include this type of ambers in high-class ambers that formed during the Cretaceous and continued forming until Oligocene. Therefore, ambers can be 32 to 150 million year old. The closest to them are ambers located in Ukraine and at the North Sea coast. Other amber fossils located in various deposits are named by the name of deposits, e. g., Brazilian, Sicilian, Dominican, Baikal, or are given a name – ambrite, beckerite, birmite, etc. World’s biggest amber deposit is the Baltic Sea coast in Kaliningrad. Annually, up to 500-800 tons of ambers are extracted internationally. Approx. 80% of this quantity is extracted in the Baltic countries, Russia (Kaliningrad Oblast) and Poland.
Baltic ambers significantly differ from other ambers – they contain no heavy metal salts, therefore they can be used in medicine – treatment of wounds, cosmetology, for masks and producing fabrics for bed linen, for medical dressings, etc. Based on numerous studies (including those of Faculty of Medicine, Rīga Stardiņš University), amber technological treatment method has been developed in Riga Technical University’s research laboratory of biotextile materials, that allows obtaining pure amber powder, where succinic acid is fully retained in process of granulation and purification of amber. Doctor Inga Lasenko has made a unique discovery – a new biotextile material has been developed that stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis in skin, vascular walls and muscle tissues. Numerous studies have been conducted on the amber thread used in textile goods and its effect on recovery of health.
