New Era Tissue Salts were developed by the German Doctor, Wilheim Heinrich Schuessler in the late 19th century. Schuessler’s studies identified the body is made up of 12 mineral salts, a correct balance of these must be maintained to ensure normal cell function and good health.

New Era is the only brand of tissue salts that is compliant with Dr Schuessler’s original production methods and has been granted the British patent GB2527483.

New Era Tissue Salts are prepared using the traditional method of finely grinding minerals to tiny particles. This manufacturing process produces the unique 6 x potency FastMelt, orosoluable tablets, for which New Era is famous. 

These tablets are moulded rather than compressed, enabling them to be dissolved under the tongue, bypassing the acid conditions of the stomach. This ensures faster absorption and optimal utilisation by the body, for maximum effectiveness.
