The Schuessler Tissue Salts are not mineral salts in the usual sense, such as those found in externally applied healing earth preparations, in many alkaline mixtures and foods.
What is special about them is that they are potentiated through dilution, and therefore directly nourish the cells in the organism. Moreover, with each of the Schuessler minerals basic alkaline and acidic elements are combined.
These salts achieve their effect through the intercellular liquid at the cell membrane or directly within the cell itself; they do not first have to be processed by the digestive system. They also improve the absorption of the corresponding minerals from foods. The latter serve as building material forming the mineral foundation in the constitution of the body.
