What is peat anyway

The most important substances in peat and the reason it is so good for our bodies are humic substances. Bodies buried in bogs have been discovered in unbelievably good condition. A bog body is a human cadaver that has been naturally mummified in a peat bog. After 1000’s of years they are still partially preserved. Bog bodies have retained their skin and internal organs due to the peat.

Peat is a carbon-rich substance that contains an abundance of minerals, trace elements, organic compounds, enzymes and other beneficial materials. The following is the result of our last laboratory analysis on Danú Ishka peat:

pH                                          pH Unit                 5.0

Calcium                               Mg/Kg                  120

Magnesium                        Mg/Kg                  324

Potassium                           Mg/Kg                  140

Sodium                                Mg/Kg                  631

Sulfate                                  Mg/Kg So4          293

Chloride                               Mg/Kg                  42

Copper                                 Mg/Kg                  8.6

Iron                                      Mg/Kg                 1411

Manganese                         Mg/Kg                  5.8

Zinc                                      Mg/Kg                  <0.5

Dry Matter                          Mg/Kg                  11.1
