Americans have adopted many bad dietary habits from myths masquerading as good nutrition; among them, the use of butter substitutes.Â Yet more than ever before, the population struggles with overweight, degenerative diseases, joint pain and osteoporosis. They even have to fight for access to healthy organic foods and raw dairy products, which are harder to obtain and higher-priced than universally-produced, additive-laden, nutritionally-depleted processed foods.
Things You'll Need: Raw Milk
Read the literature on the Weston-Price web site. Sources of the substance our farming grandparents had in their diets daily began being called Activator X by Dr. Weston Price, and also 'the anti-stiffness factorâ. Later it was named after Rosalind Wulzen, a researcher who continued to investigate its many properties. The only way to obtain this valuable substance is from raw dairy products, starting with raw milk. This web site provides a list of dairy farms in most states that are licensed to sell raw milk directly to consumers.
Start drinking only raw milk and getting your daily requirement of this substance you can't obtain anywhere else. Recently, using the same osteocalcin activation tests Dr. Price used, researchers identified the Wulzen Factor as a form of Vitamin K; not the usual vitamin K1 that is available as a supplement, but Vitamin K2, which is present only in high-vitamin Butter oil. This indicates that Vitamin K2 deficiency is universal, and that variations in K2 levels in a population just shows up the varying deficiencies. Those with the greatest deficiencies are those with weak joints and bones, and frequent âarthritisâ pain.
Make your own fresh butter from raw milk. You'll be amazed at the rich flavor, completely surpassing the processed butter from the grocery store. Ingesting fat-soluble vitamins, specifically vitamin A, is essential for growth, proper utilization of minerals and water-soluble vitamins,Â as well asÂ normal development of the brain and the nervous and reproductive systems. Add to this Vitamin K2 (high-vitamin butter oil or the Wulzen Factor) as a rich source of fat soluble vitamins and a necessary catalyst for all biological processes, this compound protects against degenerative arthritis, hardening of the arteries, cataracts, and calcification of the joints and the pineal gland.
Tips & Warnings
Very important: high levels of this substance are available exclusively in organ meats and raw dairy products like the deep yellow butterfat from raw milk or cream that come only from animals eating rapidly growing grass, and from sea foods such as fish eggs. It is also available in supplements, either liquid or capsules.
