Revitalise Your Friendly Bacteria
Nowadays, most people know that friendly gut bacteria are good for digestive health, and the popular belief has been that if gut bacteria have become imbalanced, all that is necessary to rectify the situation is to bung some more friendly gut bacteria in there.
In practice, this view may be flawed, as a poor gut environment will not sustain good gut bacteria, so before trying to repopulate the gut with the good bacteria you have to provide a good environment.
Prebiotics prepare the ground for good gut bacteria and provide the food to sustain them. Then the probiotics that you use will be able to thrive. One new and exciting prebiotic is Molkosan Vitality.
The roots of Molkosan (lactofermented whey)
Health resorts in Switzerland have been using lactofermented whey for centuries, since farmers noticing that pigs fed on it seemed to thrive, tried it themselves. They found that digestive and skin problems were resolved, and fungal problems such as athlete’s foot were easily cured.
Alfred Vogel had a clinic in Appenzell, where whey cures were particularly popular, and he experimented with ways of preserving it so that its use was not restricted to those living within reach of an alpine herd! This involved a fermentation process and the removal of the fat and protein, preserving it and making it suitable for those intolerant of dairy products. Vogel used only whey from cows grazing on the uplands, as their milk was enriched with the many herbs growing in this pastureland, and there was no spraying or chemical use there. His pure whey concentrate was known as Molkosan.
More recently, Molkosan has been produced in a powder form combined with green tea, soluble dietary fibre and a natural orange flavour to make it delicious and easy to use.
How does Molkosan Vitality help you?
Molkosan Vitality contains the relatively rare L+ lactic acid that creates a positive environment in which friendly gut bacteria can grow and thrive. These bacteria then secrete more of the healthy lactic acid and further ensure the correct conditions for their future survival. Unfriendly bacteria don’t like these conditions one bit, and as they decline in numbers you will notice many beneficial developments.
- Digestive symptoms such as constipation and bloating improve
- As you are less bloated and uncomfortable, your energy levels and general feeling of well-being increase
- Due to the steadily increasing digestive ability, your metabolism picks up, which can help with weight loss if this is an issue
- Thrush, athlete’s foot and fungal nail infestations will get better as unfriendly bacteria are kept at bay
- Arthritic symptoms may ease as tissue acidity is reduced
The immune system, which gets overwhelmed when unfriendly bacteria flood the gut, takes a turn for the better and you feel far more able to fight off infections.
Not bad for a tasty and simple remedy that anyone can use, without getting within spitting distance of an alpine pasture!
