I’d like to share with you results that Nature’s Sunshine Science Director shared with us a couple of years ago at the Canadian Annual Herbal Conference, that shows results for a super food truly beneficial for bone mineral density. Nature’s Sunshine introduced Nature’s Gold in October of 2005. An NSP Manager shared her bone density test results taken 5 years apart and after one year taking the Nature’s Gold.
Measurement Before Nature’s Gold After 1 Yr. on N.G.
Bone Density Spine L2-L4 0.988 g/cm2 1.165 g/cm2
Compared to young adult – 18% -3%
Age of subject 57 yrs. 62 yrs.
Bone age 64 yrs. 49 yrs.
State of bone Osteoporotic Normal compared – risk of fracture to young adult
These results show that at age 57, this person has the bones of a 64 yr. old, that she was osteoporotic and in danger of developing fractures. Five years later, after one full year on Nature’s Gold, at the age of 62, this person had the bones of a 49 year old!
Now these are incredibly dramatic results, with none of the side effects of the strongly promoted alendronate type drugs, i.e. Fosamex. (see separate article on Osteoporosis Tips Part 2).
Besides increasing bone mineral density, Nature’s Gold has also shown positive results for increase in lean muscle mass.
Other Research and Benefits of Nature’s Gold
Nature’s Gold was first developed as chicken feed, and it produced amazing results. The chickens had a weight increase due to a healthier appetite. They grew heavier but leaner, had more protein and muscle mass, and there were significant improvements in their heart strength, bone density and red and white blood cell counts.
Now those are all excellent indicators of improved health, so the question became, will these results translate into humans? And the answer is yes, absolutely!
One of the biggest benefits we have seen is an immediate improvement in intestinal health. The cells that line the intestine are among the fastest-growing in our bodies, and good intestinal health depends on this regeneration. The problem is that after the age of 25 or so, this regeneration slows down and the intestine is actually starting to die off.
Nature’s Gold keeps the intestinal regeneration extremely high which leads to a host of benefits.
Nutritional Assays of Nature’s Gold Benefits
The abundance of beneficial nutrients in Nature’s Gold is generally not found in the standard modern diet.
Because of its unbeatable digestibility, Nature’s Gold can transport more amino acids and nutrients into our cells. Giving our cells the essential nutrients they need enables our bodies to heal and get rid of toxins effectively. When you’re driving nutrients in, you’re driving toxins out. This increases the overall efficiencies of the body, and you’ll find that your herbs and supplements actually become more effective.
Nature’s Gold also has dramatically increased Superoxide Dismutase levels over normal barley. SOD is a very powerful antioxidant enzyme that helps neutralize free radicals and prevent cell damage that can lead to moderate and severe health concerns.
Nature’s Gold comes in two formulations. Many people start with Nature’s Gold I and increase to Nature’s Gold II (denser nutrient) for the 2nd container. Please note that one should start gradually; we suggest 1/2 tsp. daily, increasing each week up to 2 Tablespoons, to avoid eliminating toxins too quickly, which can cause discomfort.
Nature’s Gold is easy to take, in a shake or smoothie, sprinkled in yogurt , muesli, or on fruit, or taken straight in water or juice.
Those with celiac start very slowly. Due to organic barley being the source, it cannot be classsed as gluten free. However, as this is made from the sprouts of barley, some improvement in bowel condition is usually noticed within 3 months, or sooner, for most intestinal challenges.
Of course other calcium supplementation options are available, these will be covered in Part 2.
Of course, one must take into account overall health principles and lifestyle recommendations. In Lorene Benoit’s 2nd Edition of her book: The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally, she details this in a chapter , The 4 Pillars of Health. Included in her book are tips for exercise – essential for preventing osteoporosis, and healthy diet suggestions, with recipes, emotional health and Super Foods.
