Tourmanium® is a patented material designed and produced exclusively for the NugaBest products combining tourmaline, germanium, volcanic rocks and elan rocks with nano technology. It is designed to give more emission of far infrared rays to the deep tissues enhancing the effect of blood vessel dilation once combined with heat and also exposes more negative ions to your body.

What is Tourmaline?

From all existing hard minerals on Earth is the only tourmaline which holds a permanent electrical potential, also known as polar crystal; also known as piezo-electricity.

Tourmaline is the only one mineral to show permanent electricity on the earth and is also a natural (non-manufactured) source of negative ions and far infrared (FIR) rays.
Now, as a mineral, it has become a focus of research at universities and research centres worldwide.
It is also known to be helpful for improving circulation, relieving stress, increasing mental alertness and strengthening the immune system function. (Niwa Institute for Immunology, Japan. Int J. Biometeorol 1993 Sep; 37(3) 133-8).

Around 1986, it was found in a research station in Japan that, even though tourmaline was broken down in smaller pieces, a positive and a negative electrode existed on both end of the crystal, and the electrodes never disappeared unless tourmaline was boiled near 1000°C. In addition, when the positive and the negative electrodes of a tourmaline crystal were connected to each other, it was proven to show low electricity of 0.06mA.

In addition, Tourmaline generates FIR that acts like a 'supercharger', assisting the water alkalizer to negatively ionize and alkalize  water. (24,140/cc) / FIR (96%)

What is a germanium?

The most prominent property of Germanium is its electrical property as a semiconductor that lies between Metals and Non-Metals. Germanium has four electrons in its atomic structure that combine easily with other ions in human body and actively move between electric currents. When Germanium comes into proximity with an abnormal element in a human body, one of the four electrons that is farthest from the Germanium atomic core pops out with negative polarity while the other three stay, to establish a balance with human body. This property of Germanium provides a therapeutic principle which has been used over the centuries in the Oriental Medicine.

What is a volcanic rock?
Volcanic rocks are in the form of very small crystalline structure and mineral particles because it is made from the swift cooling of magma. The characteristics, chemical ingredients and mineral formation of a volcanic rock are very diverse, thus there are many types of volcanic rocks
The Nuga Medical uses basic and non-harmful alkaloids and does not use volcanic rocks that contain acidity or alkaloids harmful to the body.

What are Elvan rocks?
Named based on its looks, the elvan rock is listed on the botanical list is listed as "impressive" and "perfect," and is good for swelling and epidermic diseases as it contains no poisonous materials. It is also known to be effective for age prevention, antibiotics, relieves fatigue and cancer prevention.
