What is Tethys?

Tethys is a drink with natural sulfur iodine water bottled directly at its hydrothermal deposit in Lavey-les-Bains, Switzerland, which is marketed as a foodstuff under the brand name “Tethys”. The valuable mineral salts in Tethys come from the primordial Tethys Sea, which covered this part of Switzerland 200 million years ago. The water that absorbed the precious mineral salts from the primordial Tethys Sea dates back to the end of the last ice age 14,150 years ago, when we were hunters and gatherers. The precious Tethys goes into the bottle unadulterated.

Where does Tethys come from?
Tethys rises artesically from the boiling hot interior of the earth to the surface from 3000 m depth. It is captured at a depth of 600 metres and exits at 65 degrees Celsius.

Effect of Tethys?
Without water and salt there is no life. If mineral salts are dissolved in water, electrically conductive solutions are formed, which are also called electrolytes. Tethys water facilitates chemical reactions and helps to transport nutrients and waste. Our body is electric and we need water and mineral salts to function. Every thought, every movement requires an electric charge. The minerals, trace elements, molecules and gases naturally occurring in Tethys are responsible for the health effects of Tethys.
