Therapeutic benefits of the mud volcanoes: 

Since the volcanic waters are rich in iodine, boron, bromate, and salt compounds, they are used successfully in the treatment of certain diseases. In the 1980s, in the 16 medical institutions of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the volcano mud was applied in the treatment of polyarthritis, radiculitis, hepatitis and many skin and joint diseases, and nervous system diseases. Volcanic mud is also used in Cosmetology. Volcanic mud is composed of 24 kinds of minerals such as copper, iodine, potassium, magnesium. The volcanic mud that the Ministry of Health of Azerbaijan gives permission to sell is also used for dental treatment.

The volcanic mud is a natural raw material widely used in construction.

The activity of the volcanoes is also a sign of earthquakes. Close to an earthquake occurrence, activation of volcanoes is observed. It is possible to predict when the earthquake will occur, following changes in some of the chemicals in the surface gases and mineral water compositions.

Mud volcanoes are also useful for ecotourism. In 2009, Azerbaijani, Russian and English manual booklets were published and tours for tourists were offered in the area covering 25 mud volcanoes. The mud volcanoes of Azerbaijan received natural monument status and were taken under protection by the state.
