Dr. Bernard Jensen says " . . . one of the best natural mineral supplements I know is Capra Mineral Whey."
Why Goat's Milk?
Today, over 65% of the world's population drinks the milk of goats. Goat's milk is the most like human milk in composition and is praised for its ready digestibility. Our bodies can digest goat's milk in 20 minutes; conversely it takes 2-3 hours to digest cow's milk. Additionally, the composition and size of goat milk fat globules are 5-10 times smaller than those found in the milk of cows. Goat's milk is an alkaline food and is also naturally homogenized. The Journal of American Medicine, the official organization for over 100,000 physicians in the United States, under the heading of dietetics and hygiene writes, "The goat is the healthiest domestic animal known, and it's milk is superior in every way to cow's milk. Goat's milk is the ideal food for babies, convalescents, and invalids, especially those with weakened digestive powers. Goat's milk is the purest, most healthful, and most complete food known."
Why do we need the minerals in Capra Mineral Whey?
Since 90% of the minerals in milk are contained in the whey, CMW minerals are a natural part of the microstructure of concentrated whey. Nutrient intake works best when groups of nutrients, including minerals, are available in the digestive tract at the same time. CMW is a concentrated food that contains minerals in naturally occurring combinations that are well assimilated. Doctors and nutritionists agree that getting minerals from foods is better than getting them from manufactured, isolated, and inorganic products. Senate Document #264, 74th Congress, 2nd Session, claims there are serious nutritional deficiencies developing in this country because our food is lacking in certain minerals and trace elements needed by people to stay healthy. This claim was made in 1936! If concerns about the quality of our food were raised over 60 years ago, where does that leave us today? The obvious conclusion is supplying our bodies with minerals from highly concentrated, whole food sources. What an excellent description of Capra Mineral Whey!
Minerals in Capra Mineral Whey
Minerals seldom, if ever, work by themselves. They work in harmony with each other and with other nutrients.
Sodium + Potassium
A necessary and beneficial combination ~ Sodium is healthy?
Chronic indigestion, intestinal irritation, constipation, ulcers and other stomach disorders as well as joint troubles such as arthritis, rheumatism and osteoporosis are often signs that the bio-organic sodium is deficient in the body. Reserve supplies of sodium are stored in joints, ligaments, and lymph fluid, but chiefly in the walls of the stomach and small bowel. This makes the tissues of the stomach highly alkaline, which is needed to withstand the hydrochloric acid normally produced in the stomach. If it were not for the presence of sodium, the stomach walls would be destroyed by the acid in these tissues.
Acids are produced in the body through devitalized foods, stress, mental strain, etc. When this occurs sodium is withdrawn from the above mentioned sights to neutralize the acid. If we overdraw from the sodium reserve in the stomach it will be withdrawn from the joints and ligaments and they will suffer lack. This is because the blood, in attempt to maintain chemical balance, will borrow sodium, but calcium will remain in the joints causing pain and rigidness that is so evidently common today.
Remember, bio-organic sodium is food sodium, not to be confused with table salt sodium, NaCl, which is processed at extreme heat using many chemical procedures, including bleaching, to get the finished product. The stomach, intestines, joints, and ligaments are sodium organs and are in constant need of food sodium.
Potassium: necessary for a peak performance
Heart irregularity, fatigue and immune deficiencies, along with acid alkaline imbalance may signal bio-organic potassium deficiencies. Potassium is primarily stored in the muscles (1000including the heart muscle). Its functions include neutralizing acid wastes and, with the help of sodium, controlling the acid alkaline balance in the muscles.
Potassium and Sodium perform many of the same functions and are nearly always found together in the body. Second only to breathing and maintaining heartbeat the most important metabolic function our bodies perform is to maintain a specific pH. Electrolytes, chiefly sodium and potassium, keep the pH balance in our bodies nearly constant.
Q: What does the term trace minerals or trace elements mean?
A: Minerals are divided into two groups. Macro minerals (1000sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, etc.) are needed in fairly large amounts. Micro, or trace, minerals (1000copper, zinc, manganese, vanadium, cobalt, molybdenum, etc.) are needed in very small amounts. Although minimal in size, trace minerals are a critical factor in maintaining a proper balance of health. CMW contains an abundance of both macro and micro minerals.
Q: Does CMW have electrolytes? What do they do?
A: Yes, the most plentiful mineral ingredients in CMW are electrolytes (1000sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, chloride, and phosphorus). Electrolytes are electrically charged ions, positive and negative, which are capable of conducting electricity in a liquid. They help maintain the membrane potentials of cells and are crucially involved in muscle function, high energy levels, heart activity, and the pH balance in the blood and tissues.
Q: Are CMW minerals helpful to enzymes in the body?
A: Definitely! There are over 3,000 active enzymes in every cell of the body! An entire family of enzymes are called metalloenzymes because one or more metallic minerals play an essential role in their function. For example, copper is a key element in many enzymes that build or tear down body tissue. Manganese is used by enzymes needed to utilize several vitamins. Zinc is used in over 80 enzymes that are needed by everyone.
Q: Can I still take the product if I am lactose intolerant?
A: Many people who are lactose intolerant enjoy taking CMW. It is wise, with any medical condition, to consult your doctor before you begin using a new product.
Q: Is there a best way to take CMW?
A: CMW is available in the capsule or powder form. We suggest five capsules three times per day or two tablespoons per day of the bulk powder. The most common way of taking the CMW powder is mixing one tablespoon in a cup of warm water. Some customers like CMW in vegetable juices like celery, beet, carrot, or tomato juice. Others enjoy adding it to tea, yogurt, soup, and casseroles, or sprinkling it on top of salads or fruit.
