It was known of unique medicinal properties of mineral water of Naftusya long ago – the first mentions in literature on its curative effect belong to 1578. The only name of it speaks much – it is the only medicinal water in the world with the raised content of organic substances of an oil origin. Many people the name of Naftusya associate with the resort of Truskavets. However for many years operation stocks and the maintenance of organic chemistry in the sources of Truskavets were exhausted. Not all know that along with Truskavets there are also other fields of medicinal mineral water, for example the resort of Galaalti in Azerbaijan. So, in 20 kilometers from the Devechi region (nowadays Shabran) over the village of Galaalti in the woods over mountain in the 1969th year the new source of healing water was found. In the wood were defined 7 sources of that water which possess a large supply. The output of water makes more than 10000 liters a minute. Naftusya is much richer than this field with organic substances that is the defining indicator of medicinal properties of water of this region. Galaalti's water can be drunk only directly on a source as water isn't subject to storage and transportation (because of existence of flying organic substances). The low-mineralized Galaalti's waters contain organic substances from 15 to 25 mg/l. Here the ether-soluble organic compounds like phenols containing hydrocarbons, flying organic acids, humus substances, etc. enter. At small amounts in water there are carbonic acids, hydrogen sulfide, chlorine, sodium, potassium, iron, copper. For Galaalti's waters the most specific are the hydrocarbon oxidizing, desulphurization and thionic microorganisms (about 400 strains) which have impact on qualitative and quantitative structure of organic substances.Galaalti's water is used at treatment of a urolithic illness in various forms. It is original both on structure, and on the physiological impact on a human body.
Thanks to a low mineralization (to 0,78 g/l) and to the rich content of organic substances (8,35-23,8 mg/l), stimulates an expectoration of small stones and sand from kidneys, a gall bladder, to urinary and biliary tract, reduces a lithogenicity (tendency to formation of stones) of urine and bile, that is eliminates danger of a stone formation. It normalizes a metabolism in an organism, and also has alkalizing effect on blood and urine, reduces formation of uric acid and promotes its removal from an organism, reduces acidity of gastric juice, lowers permeability of cellular membranes, reduces bleeding, has anti-inflammatory effect, increases dieresis, deletes surplus of liquid from an organism. Thanks to immunological action resumes protective forces of an organism, promotes elimination of inflammatory processes in bodies and fabrics, to removal of products of an exchange and toxic substances, thereby prevents early aging of an organism. It has a unique natural complex of organic substances that does it by the only medicinal mineral water in the world which gained recognition of doctors-urologists of a set of the countries.
