|Hydrogen carbonite||525 mg/l|
|in all||1150,33 mg/l|
The average break-up temperature of the medicinal water of Harkány is 62 C°.
Based on its chemical composition, the medicinal water of Harkány belongs to the group of sulphuric medicinal waters. Mineral salts, ions, carbonyl-sulphide, hydrogen sulphide, sulphate, bromine, fluoride and other materials enrich the medicinal water of Harkány and make it medicinal water from medical aspect.
Its medical effect comes from the sulphur with a valence of 2 forming carbonyl sulphide (COS), which is under pressure in the form of gas, in dissolved state in water. When breaking up, the medicinal water of Harkány starts decomposing when it is released from pressure, and the hydrogen sulphide gas is released. This results in the characteristic smell of the medicinal water of Harkány.
The gas bubbles containing the elementary sulphur released of the medicinal water of Harkány can be seen well even in the medicinal pools.
The components of the medicinal water of Harkány are absorbed both in the skin and via breathing. This active absorption is 150 times more than the composites of sulphur with valence of 4 (sulphates). This makes the medicinal water of Harkány special.
What is the medicinal water of Harkány good for?
Complaints with the articulations, rheumatism:
In our body the composites of sulphur with a valence of 2 play an important part in building the articular cartilages. 90% of patients with the illnesses of the movement organs suffer from the degenerative diseases of the articulations and the spine. Mainly the load-bearing articulations are damaged: the cartilages hyalines in the waist, knees and ankles. The mechanical overload (overweight, injuries) appears in severe clinical symptoms –pain, swelling, disabled movement. The sulphur entering the body plays an important part in the reconstruction, supplementation of composites forming the cartilages, and it is proven that the sulphur is built into the cartilages. This is the chemical effect of the medicinal water of Harkány.
Attrition in the articulations of the limbs is the consequence of the reduction of kondroitin-sulphate in the cartilages. The sulphurous medicinal water of Harkány helps supplementing the kondroitin-sulphate.
Furthermore, the following participate in healing as well: the buoyancy of the medicinal water of Harkány, the hydrostatic pressure by which body weight is reduced in water, that is to say, less load is charged on the load-bearing articulations and the heating effect.
Harkány does not help only in the treatment of the illnesses of the movement organs.

Medicinal water drinking cure
The medicinal water of Harkány can be used orally in itself in the form of drinking cure or supplementing external treatments with medicinal water; in the latter case, the minerals and the sulphur are absorbed by the body owing to the drinking cure, which can even accelerate healing. Thanks to its composition, the medicinal water of Harkány improves digestion, increases metabolism, reduces blood pressure and glucose level, is integrated into the cartilages, prevents arteriosclerosis and has aorta dilating effect, too. These beneficiary effects can be experienced during the drinking cure as well.
The application of medicinal waters as drinking cure has its rules: these cures are counter-indicated for patients with tumour diseases and the acute state of all the illnesses of organs and articulations. You should consult your doctor regarding the application of the cure!
During the drinking cure, consume fasting 3×200 ml of medicinal water while for patients with chronic inflammation 3×100 ml of water is sufficient. If you are unsure about your health condition, or if you prefer gradual and slow healing, you should start the cure with this reduced dose.
