Molkosan (Concentrated Milk Whey) - A.Vogel
Concentrated whey rich in L+ lactic acid
Molkosan® is one of Alfred Vogel's original remedies. Made from whey obtained from organic milk, Molkosan is rich in a substance known as L+ lactic acid, which is now known to support the growth of good gut bacteria. In this way, it acts as a prebiotic.
Whey has a long history of use in healthcare and was known as far back as the time of Hippocrates (400 B.C.). In the 18th century, whey enjoyed a renaissance, securing an enviable reputation and became popular with visitors to health resorts such as those in Gais, Switzerland, which was frequented by European royalty.
In the past, the trend has been to use probiotics for digestion problems. However, the difficulty is that if the internal environment hasn't changed, probiotics will be killed off just as the original friendly bacteria were.
Using prebiotics such as Molkosan to improve the internal environment of the gut increases the likelihood that a probiotic supplement will work well.
Molkasan is naturally fermented, concentrated milk whey. It is extremely acidic and antiseptic. Ideal for inhibiting bacterial and fungal infections, whilst its high mineral and orotic acid content make it suitable as an aid to slimming.
Alfred Vogel was greatly impressed by this sharp, refreshing drink and wrote about it repeatedly throughout his life. Scarcely has another natural product been praised so often.

What is L+ lactic acid?
L+ lactic acid is the substance produced by lactic acid bacteria in the human gut. L+ keeps the acidity of your gut at the right level and acts as a prebiotic by allowing good gut bacteria to thrive, encouraging their growth.
The better your levels of L+, the better able you will be to support a healthy population of good gut bacteria, which in turn promotes efficient digestion. Unfriendly bacteria don’t like L+ and can't survive in a gut full of healthy, L+ supported good bacteria.
