Nat­u­ral rem­edy that has stood the test of time

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - LIFESTYLE - WITH CLAIR WHITTY

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.
