Misasa Onsen is one of the world’s famous radioactive hot springs containing a high radon concentration. Radon is a weak radioactive substance produced by the decay of radium. Low doses of radon exposure improve the metabolism and boost the body’s immunity and natural healing power. These are the special “hormesis” effects.
Additionally, when inhaled, radon enhances the body’s antioxidant function, which supports anti-aging and prevention of lifestyle-related diseases. This mineral-rich spring water is also good for drinking.

Secrets of Misasa Onsen “Therapeutic Hot Springs”: good to bathe in, drink, and inhale

Misasa Onsen’s “Radiation hormesis effects” increase the body’s natural healing power

Exposure to tiny amounts of radiation stimulates and activates our body cells to expand capillaries, improve the metabolism, and boost immunity and natural healing power. These are the radiation hormesis effects. Radium springs in Misasa are famous for the hormesis effects on the body. Recently, the mechanism has been clarified and the effects have been reported in the media, attracting nationwide attention.

Misasa Onsen is one of the world’s richest radium hot springs

Misasa hot springs contain a high level of radon. Radon is a weak radioactive substance produced by the decay of radium and is dispersed in the air.

When inhaled, vaporized radon is taken into the body.

When inhaled, vaporized radon is taken into the lungs and stimulates our body cells through the bloodstream. In addition, you can intake by drinking spring water which contains abundant minerals which help double the blood flow in the stomach lining.

Enhances the body’s antioxidant function

A study has shown that when inhaled, radon enhances the body’s antioxidant functions. The antioxidant functions remove the active oxygen that is believed to cause aging and life-style related diseases. Furthermore, it is said that activation of superoxide dismutase (SOD) in the body is heightened, leading to expectation of prevention of clogged arteries.

Hormesis effects brought by radium hot springs refresh both mentally and physically!

Bathing in hot springs is as refreshing as bathing in a forest.

Bathing in a radium hot spring refreshes as if bathing in a forest. This is because the ionization effect of radiation helps the air produce more small ions, which emit negative ions.Enjoy the refreshing atmosphere of hot springs as effective as the experience of bathing in a forest.

Tiny amounts of radon activate the body’s cells. This is the hormesis effect.

Tiny amounts of inhaled radioactive radon stimulate and increase the activity of the body’s cells, resulting in the activation of our metabolism. In this way, the immune system and natural healing ability are improved. This is the radiation hormesis effect. Hyperthermic effects of hot springs further improve the hormesis effect.

Cancer mortality rate is half the national average.

An organization that has analyzed the statistics for the past 37 years reported in 1992 that the cancer mortality rate of residents in the Misasa Onsen area was about half that of the national average. Based on these results, a proposal was made that the effect of low-dose radiation exposure should again be scientifically investigated. This report strongly demonstrates the theory of a radiation hormesis effect.
