Gesundheit is the german translation of "bless you".
Gesundheit. It's a German word--gesund means health, and heit is a suffix that is equivalent to -est in English. Therefore, gesundheit means "healthiest". The person saying gesundheit is wishing the sneezer the best of health.

Gesundheit, german for "healthiness"
As others have said it's 'gesundheit'. It comes from the German word 'Gesund' meaning 'healthy' and is usually said when someone sneezes to wish them good health, very much as we would say 'Bless you'. The full meaning of 'Gesund' is as follows
Gesundwieder : Gesundwerden : To get better
Gesundheit : Healthiness
Gesundheitlich : physical health
So someone might say to you "Wie geht es ihnen, gesundheitlich?" (How are you? or How's your health?)
Gesundheitschadlich is unhealthy (Umlaut over the 'a')
Gesundheitswesen is The Health Service
Gesundheitszustand is 'state of health'
Hope you enjoyed the German lesson.
