How Is Moor Formed?

Moor is a rare form of nutrient-rich peat created by the gradual transformation of herbs, plants & flowers that have been permanently submerged under water or underground.

Free from the decaying effects of oxygen and in the correct climatic and biological conditions, the plant matter undergoes a ˜ripening” process over many thousands of years into a rich, black substance.

During this process all of the organic and inorganic substances within the plants are assimilated into the Moor resulting in a herbal complex with wonderful therapeutic properties.

Moor has been a part of traditional medical folklore throughout many parts of Central Europe for centuries. During the past 60 years, a wealth of clinical studies conducted on Moor therapy has confirmed that Moor indeed does possess a wide range of beneficial properties. As a result, hundreds of European physicians now use and recommend Moor treatments.
