Sauerkraut-charcoal supplement reverses glyphosate poisoning in cattle

Glyphosate poisoning

Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) According to the latest research,a chain reaction occurs when cows consume feed containing glyphosate residues. The residues suppress beneficial gut bacteria, which boosts growth of the bad bacteria.

This unbalance makes cattle prone to botulism, which is caused by the toxin-producing Clostridium botulinum bacteria. Cattle affected with botulism may develop muscle paralysis, physical staggering and tongue protrusion.(1)

However, Professor Monika Kruger's published studies have shown that these toxic effects can be reversed with the use of a sauerkraut-juice-charcoal combination that also includes humic acid (an ingredient of humus, organic matter in soil). Together, they stimulate the immune system of cows with chronic botulism, improving their health.(2)

Published in the journal Anaerobe, the one study hones in on the increase in cattle with botulism-associated diseases in Germany. Ultimately, it makes the conclusion that glyphosate disrupts healthy gut bacteria that keeps botulism at bay.

How gut bacteria benefit health

It explains the benefits of friendly gut bacteria as follows:

Numerous bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract (GIT) produce bacteriocines directed against C. botulinum and other pathogens: Lactic acid producing bacteria (LAB) such as lactobacilli, lactococci and enterococci, generate bacteriocines that are effective against Clostridium spp.(3)

However, the article states that environmental toxins such as glyphosate can disrupt this health benefit:

A reduction of LAB in the GIT microbiota by ingestion of strong biocides like glyphosate could be an explanation for the observed increase in levels of C. botulinum associated diseases. In the present paper, we report on the toxicity of glyphosate to the most prevalent Enterococcus spp. in the GIT. Ingestion of this herbicide could be a significant predisposing factor that is associated with the increase in C. botulinum mediated diseases in cattle.(3)

The solution? The aforementioned sauerkraut-charcoal supplement.

This additional study by Kruger and her team highlights the ways in which the health of cows with botulism can be improved.

Charcoal, sauerkraut juice, humic acids improve health of cows with botulism

Titled, "Oral Application of Charcoal and Humic Acids Influence Selected Gastrointestinal Microbiota, Enzymes, Electrolytes, and Substrates in the Blood of Dairy Cows Challenged with Glyphosate in GMO Feeds," the study was published in the Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology.

The abstract states that the study was "initiated to investigate the influence of oral application of charcoal, sauerkraut juice and humic acids on specific gastrointestinal microbiota and selected enzymes, electrolytes, and substrates in the blood of dairy cows fed GMO feeds containing glyphosate."(2)

The abstract concludes that "There was a significant reduction of glyphosate in urine following supplementation with a combination of 200g charcoal plus either 500 mL sauerkraut juice or humic acid" and that "a charcoal-sauerkraut juice combination and humic acids reduced glyphosate excretion by urine and led to the improved health of animals."(2)

Fermented foods benefit human health too

The use of fermented foods such as sauerkraut is something that many might find interesting, as such foods are also linked with improvements in human health.

Sandor Katz, who calls himself a "fermentation revivalist" and has authored the book The Art of Fermentation, has said, "Fermented foods help people stay healthy." He also stated, "Bacteria in our gut enable us to live. We could not survive without bacteria. ... They allow us to digest food, to assimilate the nutrients in our food..."(4,5)

He explains that sauerkraut is perhaps the easiest fermented food for a person to make. By simply chopping up cabbage along with some other favorite vegetables, salting them and then sealing them in an air-tight container for up to five days, the food can be made very easily. Such fermented foods boost digestive ability and overall health by keeping bacteria in the gut healthy.(4)

In other words, bad bacteria out, good bacteria in.
