Mumio (mumijo), mountain balsam
Purified of additives Mumio is black colour, shiny on surface. Consistency
is similar to asphalt. Almost immediately dissolves also by body heat (on
palm). With significant unmistakeable bitter taste and characteristic unusual
smell. Very easily dissolves in water. Does not dissolve in alcohol. Fine
sediment after stirring has to be minimal.
From the chemical point of view Mumio is a natural mix of organic and inorganic
matters. It consists of 26 microelements, 10 metallic oxides, 6 amino-acids,
steroids, phospholipids; range of vitamins, ethereal oils and of further
biologically active substances.
The word Mumio literally means “protecting body against diseases”, “body
preserving”. In the areas where Persian Empire was situated the term “mum”
The deposits of Mumio are located in the high mountains of Central Asia
where they from the geographic point of view form a strip over these highlands.
Local people gather Mumio in the caves and cave rifts in hardly accessible
terrains in the altitudes of over 3000 m. The group sets out for a few weeks’
journey to the mountains which results in few bags of raw Mumio. Gathering
of Mumio is usually the only income source for these people and they keep
locations of its deposits in secret and information about these locations
are passed from father to son. Mumio is found on walls and ceilings of caves
or in rifts as drop stones or small stalactites which by its shape remind
tears (hence the name Tears of Mountains).
First Mumio references are older than three thousand years. Mumio was not
known only in Babylon, Persia, Egypt, but also in Greece, Rome and certainly
in Asia. The word Mumio itself (sometimes written as Mumjo, Mumijo, Mumyo)
has its word root probably in Greek language - meaning 'body preserving'.
It is a name used in western civilization.
Mumio was used as medicine by Sumerians, Vedas – Indian sacred books write
about it. Is is often present in medical writings as Susruta-Samhita, Ccaraka-samita,
in chineese book of difficult problems. Knowledge about Mumio and its applications
were kept secret, and were handed over in families of high ranked doctors
only by word of mouth from father to son.
Mumio is mentioned in works of such great men as Aristotle who researched
effects on people and recorded various applications, his student Alexander
the Great and others (Shirasi, Tabib).
The church also knew (and knows) Mumio very well. As well as the most famous
medieval representatives of medical science as Avicena, Paracleus, Agricola,
Mumio is a versatile, naturally occurring biological regulator, possessing
spectrum of health uses. It exerts a favorable effect on metabolic processes
and on the human immune system, restoring decreased functions of the body.
Mumio is a unique biologically-active substance with striking healing effects
and protective influence on the human body. It long been used in Asian and
Russian traditional medicine, and is still used today for medical purposes.
Mumio has a wide spectrum of pharmacological activity. But, despite decades
of impressive research results, official medicine is familiar with it only
as food additive.
It is also used as a general strengthening and tonic remedy. Mumio possesses
moderately significant anti-swelling activity. It also contains substances
which stimulate the immune system. Mumio has not been found to show side
A unique plant extract in combination with dozens of minerals; six amino-acids;
vitamins A, B , C and P (citrins), natural steroids, terpiniods, phospholipids
and polyphenol complexes. Mumio contains trace and macro-elements (cobalt,
nickel, copper, zinc, manganese, chromium, iron, sodium, potassium, magnesium,
Mumio possesses high immuno-modulating, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory
properties, which permits its successful usage for the prevention and treatment
of infectious diseases and conditions. This effect is a result of stimulating
the body's natural regenerative and protective processes. In contrast to
antibiotics, Mumio has a broad spectrum of action and does not cause allergic
reactions or toxic damage. Mumio reduces the body's susceptibility to flues
and viral infections. Since Mumio causes a faster regeneration process of
nerve cells, cardiac muscles and other tissues, it is very helpful in cancer
patients treated with chemotherapy and in places with high levels of environmental
pollution. It raises the liver's ability to detoxify the organism. It has
also shown to help blood vessel clogging problems.
Clinical studies on Mumio
Mumio is an ancient substance, but even today the mysteries of its natural
origin (and perhaps more importantly, the secrets of its natural tonic properties)
have not been fully resolved. There are many legends and stories about Mumio.
The substance occurs in several varieties with different physical appearance:
"golden Mumio" is red, "silver Mumio" is white, "copper Mumio" is blue,
and "dark Mumio" brown to black. The above-mentioned book also describes
the natural distribution of Mumio, its function as a natural balsam, and
how and where it has been clinically tested.
Researchers in many countries, but particularly in Russia, have paid increasing
attention to the clinical study of Mumio and its curative activity in various
pathological processes. It has been established that Mumio contains zoo-melanic
acids, essential humic acid, and quantities of micronutrient minerals in
balance with the physiological processes in the human body. This all gives
hope that the results of new experiments may discover even broader practical
applications for the substance in the treatment of many diseases.
Directions for usage
Suggested doses, methods of application, and duration of treatment may
vary somewhat in case of different medical conditions.
For adults - 1 tablet (0,2g) half an hour before a meal, once or twice
daily for 25 days. After a 10 day break, the course can be repeated. In
chronic conditions, the course should be repeated 3-4 times for greatest
results. The daily dose can be dissolved in 3 tablespoons of warm water,
taken one each half an hour before meals. In hemorrhoids, gum diseases,
radiculitis and woman problems, 5g can be dissolved in 100g of honey and
applied directly. In folk practice, Mumio is commonly used with juices,
honey, tea, or milk. Or the ground preparation is mixed with edible grains
and taken on an empty stomach, approximately half an hour before a meal.
Sometimes it is preferable that the tablet is taken directly. In certain
conditions however a suitable preparation may be applied as drops, as an
external compress, or as an ointment.
Mumio is contraindicated in cases of kidney stones, pregnant and nursing
women and children under the age of 12.
The product must be kept in a dry and cool place. Use within 5 years after
date of production. Keep out of reach of children.
Science has not yet resolved all the secrets of the observed effects of
Mumio. Despite this, over the last few decades Mumio has provided valuable
results in many studies carried out by the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food
industries in Russia and other countries; and it is gaining ever-wider recognition.
