A Vogel Molkosan
Molkosan by A.Vogel is a lactofermented whey concentrate made from fresh organic Swiss Alpine dairy. After isolating the whey, it is fermented by adding L. Casei bacteria, creating a health enhancing, living food. It is free of lactose and casein so is suitable for those with allergies. It can actually improve ones tolerance to dairy products and may even help eliminate lactose intolerance. Molkosan will feed the body's healthy intestinal bacteria allowing them to grow and thrive. It also encourages peristalsis, aiding in proper bowel function. It is an excellent choice for those with chronic digestive issues such as bloating, gas, and constipation.

Whey was used as far back as Ancient Greece. Already at that time, it was recommended to improve digestion, purify blood, protect against poisoning, and for skin problems. Similar to spas, whey cure establishments flourished up until the 19th Century. Was this Cleopatra's beauty secret?
Molkosan is a unique A. Vogel product. It is a fresh whey concentrate prepared according to a special lactofermentation process: Molkosan is derived from whey, the bluish liquid oozing from curdling milk when proteins agglomerate to make cheese. Lactic ferments, added to the whey, transform lactose into lactic acid. Once fermentation is completed, the remaining proteins are removed. This liquid is then vacuum concentrated and pasteurized.
Molkosan is very rich in minerals (calcium, potassium, phosphorus, etc.) and has an acid pH. Minerals are known to de-acidify the body. Molkosan contains lactic acid in its levogyral or physiologic form: L (+)-lactic acid.
Is a natural antiseptic and a keratolytic agent (it helps to remove dead skin and cells from the epidermis).
Is indispensable to the growth of bones and teeth. It is essential to the functioning of the nervous and cardiac systems. It plays a significant role in the contraction of the muscles and is a coenzyme necessary for many cellular processes and for blood coagulation. However, calcium is difficult to assimilate from food. The lactic acid within whey enhances the body's ability to metabolize calcium.
Is another important mineral plentiful in Molkosan. Nerve and muscular functions depend on potassium. Physical exertion such as sport and heavy perspiration (sauna) can cause deficiency in potassium.
Also abundant in Molkosan, phosphorus is necessary for the transformation of nutrients into energy. It also contributes to the skeletal mass of bones and teeth.
Molkosan has several health beneficial effects:
Externally, Molkosan is useful as a tonic and exfoliating lotion for the face and against skin irritation and other skin problems (on a wet cotton swab). Molkosan can also be used as a rinsing solution for the hair and body (diluted 1:10 in water).
