Natural remedy that has stood the test of time
MOLKOSAN is an amazing natural remedy, made from whey that I have spoken about in the past. Previously I have pigeonholed it into a box for digestive health and haven’t talked about it much because quite a lot of the time I am saying to avoid excess dairy for various reasons. But Molkosan has many health benefits that you might be interested in and it’s time to tell you about it.
I first read about Molkosan in a book called The Nature Doctor by Alfred Vogel, first published in 1952. I like supplements or foods that stand the test of time and Molkosan is one of these.
Molkosan is concentrated whey, whey being the by-product of cheese manufacturing and contains most of the milk’s mineral nutrients. You would think that a by-product would have no place in our health but Molkosan Whey Concentrate has over 60 years of testimonials supporting its use in health.
Molkosan is commonly used for digestive health. It can be used on a daily basis to help relieve symptoms of IBS such as bloating. It’s a great remedy for acid reflux which can be caused by too little or too much stomach acid. Molkosan regulates the secretion of gastric acid, it reduces an excess of acid and increases its quantity where there is lack of it.
It’s a natural prebiotic which supports healthy gut bacteria. It’s easy to take, simply add a tablespoon of Molkosan to a glass of water and drink at mealtimes. It’s suitable for vegetarians and is free from lactose.
In his book, Vogel says that it is good for diabetics to drink on a daily basis. He says that with regular use alongside the appropriate diet, after several weeks the blood sugars will start to reduce.
Molkosan can also be used externally on the skin. For example, it can be used on pimples, eczema, or for cradle cap, athlete’s foot, or fungal nail infections. It can be dabbed on, undiluted, to the skin. For optimal results you can take it internally, and apply it to the affected area daily. And at the same time avoid the foods associated with aggravating these conditions, especially sugar and wheat.
So as you can see Molkosan has far more health benefits than I have been giving it credit for.
