As far back as 400 BC Hippocrates recommended whey to his patients as a health tonic. In ancient Greece it was recommended to improve digestion, purify blood, protect against poisoning, and for skin problems. During the 1700’s and 1800’s, whey cure establishments flourished in Europe, and royalty and commoners alike converged on these ‘spa’s’ seeking whey’s curative properties for myriad conditions ranging from low blood sugar to eczema.
Whey’s popularity once again soared in the mid-1900’s, in a town called Appenzell in Switzerland home to the famous Appenzeller cheese. Renowned Swiss naturopath Dr Alfred Vogel, who lived near Appenzell was greatly impressed by this sharp, refreshing drink and wrote about it repeatedly throughout his life.When he studied the Apennzeller whey Vogel observed its numerous curative and beneficial health properties. He created Molkosan by formulating a four times concentrated form of the whey and prescribed it for skin problems, indigestion, sore throats, laryngitis, diabetes and as a pancreas tonic. Today it is used by people in more than 23 countries to improve their health.
Molkosan is rich in lactic acid in its beneficial physiological form, L(+)-lactic acid, which is essential in preparing the digestive system for processing the food we eat. Beneficial for people with lactose intolerance, because the L(+)-lactic acid helps to break down the protein and lactose in milk. L(+)-lactic acid also helps the small intestine to absorb minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper.
On average a human consumes an incredible 30 000 kg food and 50 000 litres of fluid in a lifetime. Every morsel of this food and every drop we drink must be broken down, digested and absorbed, and the waste eliminated, in order to give us energy and produce healthy new cells.
Did you know that every few seconds your body produces more than 50 000 new cells? To perform this vital task it needs good food, and needs to absorb it properly. If these conditions are not met you may suffer from low energy levels, an inactive immune system, memory problems, malnutrition, skin problems … the list is endless.
Molkosan creates a good environment in the gut, in which the friendly bacteria can flourish thus promoting better digestion and improving metabolism and vitality.
