Schüssler-Salts are very suitable for athletes because they not only strengthen ligaments and joints, and ensure better post-workout regeneration, but they can also improve performance.
Whether it’s a beginner or a professional athlete, the following basic mix is recommended:
- No. 3 Ferrum phosphate – improves oxygen supply
- No. 5 Potassium phosphate – responsible for a fast energy intake
- No. 7 Magnesium phosphate – essential for muscle function
Dissolve 10 tablets of each salt in one litre of warm water and drink the mixture in small sips. Best to drink some before training commences and the rest slowly during or afterwards. Keep each sip in the mouth for a few moments; this allows a better absorption via the oral mucosa.
Athletes or people with more than 4 training sessions per week should take additionally one of the following Schüssler-Salts, depending on the type of sport.
- No. 1 Calcium fluoride – for the strengthening of ligaments and tendons (e.g. tennis, gymnastics, combat sport)
- No. 2 Calcium phosphate – for sports with lots of muscle building (e.g. weightlifting, strength training)
- No. 6 Potassium sulphate – suitable for sports with increased oxygen demand (e.g. mountaineering or skiing)
- No. 8 Sodium chloride – types of sport with high perspiration (e.g. football, basketball)
In addition to the tablets, external application of the corresponding creams/lotions also assists after sports.

Silica is regarded as the ‘beauty’ mineral. What is so special about this tissue salts?
Function in the Body
Silica assists a firm connective tissue and is vital for the growth of skin, hair, and nails.
Occurrence in the Body
As a component of the connective tissue, Silica (silicic acid) is indispensable for the body. It plays a part in the makeup of tissue structures.
Connective Tissue Weakness is caused by an Imbalance
The connective tissue is subject to a constant build-up and breakdown. In order to be able to fulfill its various duties in the organism a balance between the up and down is required. A predominance of breakdown causes reduced elasticity and stability of the connective tissue – simply put, a weakness of the connective tissue. Obvious symptoms are:
- Flaccid skin and wrinkle formation, e.g. the face, décolletage, and upper arms
- Cellulite, spider veins and varicose veins – mainly on upper- and lower legs
- Stretchmarks, e.g. on abdomen and breast
What the Connective Tissue dislikes
- Fast tissue growth (puberty, pregnancy, weight gain)
- Intensive sunbathing
- Hormonal changes (use of contraceptives, pregnancy, menopause)
- Lack of exercise and overweight
- Imbalanced diet – poor in vitamins and minerals
Tips for a strong Connective Tissue
- Healthy and versatile diet: Fresh food and adequate fluid consumption!
- Stimulate your connective tissue: Endurance sport combined with strength training!
- Grant your connective tissue a beauty program: Contrast showers and massages!
- Roll the connective tissue smooth
- External support: Regular care with Biochemic Creams and/or Lotions
The connective tissue can also be supported purposefully and gently from inside. In accordance with Schüssler’s biochemic therapy a combination of selected tissue salts activates the body’s self-regulating forces.
