More Information About Moomiyo also Known as Mumie
Though Mumie (also known as moomiyo) has been used in folk medicine of different countries for almost two thousand years, there are still many legends regarding its mysterious origin. In Russia serious research has been conducted on Mumie since 1910. This research became even more intense during the past twenty years. Many investigations originate from Mumie's origin, which is the Middle Asia regions of the former USSR (Kirgysia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan). This research was supported through government financing and conducted at major laboratories within the national science and medicine academies of these republics.
Health organizations aren't the only groups interested in Mumie. In Russia and many of the former USSR republics Mumie is considered a strategic material and is used extensively as a performance enhancer within the armed forces (Spetnaz, and other elite fighting groups), to help prepare cosmonauts before and during space travel, and as an important part in the restoration programs of national and Olympic-level athletes. It was surprising to me that Mumie was unknown to American athletes until recently when it was introduced by a Russian/American company in 1991.
To locate the origin for the word Mummie one would have to go back 2,500 years to the time of the ancient philosopher and scientist Aristotle. He proposed the first procedures for testing the compound as well as its initial preparation in grape juice, honey and milk. Mumie is often used by ordinary persons to treat bone fractures and strains of muscles and ligaments, stomach disorders, nervous and cardiovascular problems, the inflammation of joints, and impotence. It is a good biostimulator and serves to elevate the immune system and neuro-homoral regulation, control oxidation-reduction processes, and has a positive influence on mineral metabolism. The most recent survey of the practical applications of Mumie have come from Moscow through the efforts of Dr.'s A.A. Altamyshev and B.K. Kortshubelkov and supported by the Russian Committee of Cosmonautics. To date several hundred research investigations have been conducted on Mumie which clearly point to its mechanisms of action and its usefulness.
