100% natural, mineral-rich, goat’s milk whey powder. Goat’s milk is the most widely consumed milk in the world. Goat’s milk is most like human milk in composition. Mt. Capra goats are not fed any pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, or growth hormones.
Capra Mineral Whey is minimally processed to insure it’s original composition. It contains more than 20 naturally occurring minerals in a highly complex whole food form which our bodies recognize and utilize with ease, a highly concentrated, alkaline, mineral food. Just 1 ounce of this goat whey powder has the nutritional equivalent of 25 ounces of fresh goats milk. "One of the best natural mineral supplements I know is Capra Mineral Whey." Dr. Bernard Jensen
Why Goat's Milk?
Over 65% of the world’s population drink the milk of goats – it is highly digestible. The composition and size of goat milk fat globules are 5-10 times smaller than those found in the milk of cows. Goat’s milk is an alkaline food and is also naturally homogenized.
The Journal of American Medicine, the official organization for over 100,000 physicians in the United States, under the heading of dietetics and hygiene writes,
"The goat is the healthiest domestic animal known, and its milk is superior in every way to cow’s milk. that be for convalescents, and invalids, especially those with weakened digestive powers. (The goat’s milk must be raw, i.e. not subjected to pasteurisation to have the most benefits. …. Goats milk is the purest, most healthful, and most complete food known."
(We believe, that for babies, the ideal and healthiest food is mother’s milk. If the mother cannot breast feed then raw goats or raw, unpasteurised organic (or healthy chemical and anti-biotic free) cows milk plus, ideally, the addition of a little barley grass juice powder (one reason for this is to boost folic acid levels). Please read the article Ancient Dietary Wisdom to understand the benefits of unpasteurised milk, whether goats or cows. Please also note that there is confusion about the benefits of cows versus goat’s milk partly due to the issue of pasteurisation. If you look at the evidence e.g. as elucidated by Weston Price, over many years of study on many native peoples distributed across the globe, pasteurised milk, tends to create disease/poor health, whereas raw, i.e. unpasteurised creates abundant health and can reverse disease. People generally tend to ignore the issues of health of the cow (such as the use of antibiotics, hormones, etc) and whether the milk being discussed is raw or pasteurised, when considering if milk, cow’s or goat’s is healthy to consume. In my opinion much harm is done to a babies health by feeding formulas that lack the vital enzymes and undamaged proteins that can only be present in raw milk).
Why Do We Need the Minerals in Capra Mineral Whey?
Since 90% of the minerals in milk are contained in the whey, CMW minerals are a natural part of the microstructure of concentrated whey. Nutrient intake works best when groups of nutrients are available in the digestive tract at the same time. CMW is a concentrated food that contains minerals in naturally occurring combinations that are well assimilated. Doctor’s and nutritionists agree that getting minerals from foods is better than getting them from manufactured, isolated, and inorganic products.
Senate Document #264, 74th Congress, 2nd Session, claims there are serious nutritional deficiencies developing in this country because our food is lacking in certain minerals and trace elements needed by people to stay healthy. This claim was made in 1936! If concerns about the quality of our food were raised over 60 years ago, where does that leave us today? The obvious conclusion is supplying our bodies with minerals from highly concentrated, whole food sources. What an excellent description of Capra Mineral Whey!
Extracts from "Natures Prescription Milk"
by Gloria Gilbere N.D D.A. HOM Oh.D.
It is confusing (to say the least) for both patient and doctor when they read articles and claims about mineral and electrolyte replacements. In my personal and clinical experience, I observed supplementation in many forms and compositions and there is tremendous confusion regarding nutrition. Many argue that if you eat right you shouldn't need supplements. This attitude exists because of confusion between diet and nutrition. Our diet is the total sum of what we consume; nutrition is the benefits of what we consume. It is important to keep in mind A that its not only what we eat but how our body utilizes what we consume and what is excreted unused.
It is only recently that the role of minerals has received the importance it deserves. The following are examples of disorders, but not limited to, those that are either caused by or affected by mineral deficiencies and imbalances:
• Cardiovascular • Gastrointestinal • Muscular• Skeletal• Neurological• Immune• Endocrine
Minerals do not work alone; they must work in synchronicity (in balance) with one another, as well as with the metabolism. Examples of minerals "out of balance";
I personally experienced the effects of minerals that were " out of balance ". During my illness, as in most chronic disorders, a condition of malabsorbtion exists. This means the body may be taking in the needed supplements but unable to make use of it. Therefore it is either excreted and provides no benefit, or is stored and can have negative effects with compounding symptoms that are challenging to diagnose. Whenever I consumed minerals or calcium replacements, my right eye would flutter or twitch to a point where it caused me great concern not to mention the annoyance. I had developed malabsorption from a damaged intestinal tract caused by a condition known as leaky gut syndrome. My body was not able to utilise the supplements and was storing them in unsafe amounts.
In my quest for wellness I experimented with over 11 mineral replacement supplements, all without sustained relief. I’ve also consulted with thousands of clients, world-wide, whose symptoms range from brain fag, to muscle cramps and involuntary movements-none of their mineral / electrolyte supplements provided complete relief, if any.
After I was introduced to a mineral/electrolyte supplement made from organic goats milk, much to my delight, I was symptom free - as were my clients with many of the same complaints
Your Body’s Electrical System
Minerals are the body's electrical transmitters-make sure you’re body is sending the right messages! Minerals serve as electrical signals to every cell, and brain signals are transmitted through body fluids. Intestinal disorders, particularly leaky gut and diarrhoea, cause deficiencies of minerals. Since minerals are stored primarily in the body's bone and muscle tissue, the absorbed mineral must be carried by the blood to the cells and then absorbed by the cell membrane to be utilized.
Individuals with inflammatory and circulatory disorders like Fibromyalgia, Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetes and Hypothyroidism especially experience muscle spasms, tingling, numbness and "brain-fog.". These symptoms can be caused, or accelerated, by a deficiency of minerals and the compromised ability for absorption.
Capra Mineral Whey contains the mineral combinations found in whole foods, high in sodium, potassium and calcium and has an alkaline reaction. The powder is grainy but naturally sweet and tasty. To me, the taste is like a combination of Ovaltine™ and Graham Crackers™. It contains a jam-packed array of minerals and electrolytes in each serving. It is easily mixed in cool or warm water and makes a delicious energy drink I prefer it in warm water to be consumed like a broth or tea. Many of my clients sprinkle it on hot cereal as a natural sweetener instead of brown sugar. It is especially health promoting for the very young and the frail. Mineral Whey is not only essential in restoring the body's electrical balance, but also in maintaining it, naturally.

Capra Mineral Whey Questions & Answers
Q Is Sodium Healthy?
Chronic indigestion, intestinal irritation, constipation, ulcers and other stomach disorders as well as joint troubles such as arthritis, rheumatism and osteoporosis are often signs that the bioorganic sodium is deficient in the body. Reserve supplies of sodium are stored in joints, ligaments, and lymph fluid, but chiefly in the walls of the stomach and small bowel. This makes the tissues of the stomach highly alkaline, which is needed to withstand the hydrochloric acid normally produced in the stomach. If it were not for the presence of sodium, the stomach walls would be destroyed by the acid in these tissues.
Acids are produced in the body through devitalized foods, stress, mental strain, etc. When this occurs sodium is withdrawn from the above-mentioned sights to neutralize the acid. If we overdraw from the sodium reserve in the stomach it will be withdrawn from the joints and ligaments and they will suffer lack. This is because the blood, in attempt to maintain chemical balance, will borrow sodium, but calcium will remain in the joints causing pain and rigidness that is so evidently common today. Remember, bio-organic sodium is food sodium, not to be confused with table salt sodium, NaCl, which is processed at extreme heat using many chemical procedures, including bleaching, to get the finished product. The stomach, intestines, joints, and ligaments are sodium organs and are in constant need of food sodium.
Potassium: necessary for a peak performance heart irregularity, fatigue and immune deficiencies, along with acid alkaline imbalance may signal bio-organic potassium deficiencies. Potassium is primarily stored in the muscles (including the heart muscle). It’s functions include neutralizing acid wastes and, with the help of sodium, controlling the acid alkaline balance in the muscles. Potassium and Sodium perform many of the same functions and are nearly always found together in the body. Second only to breathing and maintaining heartbeat the most important metabolic function our bodies perform is to maintain a specific pH. Electrolytes, chiefly sodium and potassium, keep the pH balance in our bodies nearly constant.
Q: What does the term "trace minerals" or "trace elements" mean?
A: Minerals are divided into two groups. Macro minerals (sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, etc.) are needed in fairly large amounts. Micro, or trace, minerals (copper, zinc, manganese, vanadium, cobalt, molybdenum, etc.) are needed in very small amounts. Although minimal in size, trace minerals are a critical factor in maintaining a proper balance of health. CMW contains an abundance of both macro and micro minerals.
Q: Does Capra Mineral Whey have electrolytes? What do they do?
A: Yes, the most plentiful mineral ingredients in CMW are electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, chloride, and phosphorus). Electrolytes are electrically charged ions, positive and negative, which are capable of conducting electricity in a liquid. They help maintain the membrane potentials of cells and are crucially involved in muscle function, high energy levels, heart activity, and the pH balance in the blood and tissues.
Q: Are Capra Mineral Whey minerals helpful to enzymes in the body?
A: Definitely! There are over 3,000 active enzymes in every cell of the body! An entire "family" of enzymes are called metalloenzymes because one or more metallic minerals play an essential role in their function. For example, copper is a key element in many enzymes that build or tear down body tissue. Manganese is used by enzymes needed to utilize several vitamins. Zinc is used in over 80 enzymes that are needed by everyone.
Q: Can I still take the product if I am lactose intolerant?
A: Many people who are lactose intolerant enjoy taking CMW. It is wise, with any medical condition, to consult your doctor before you begin using a new product.
Q: Is there a "best way" to take Capra Mineral Whey?
A: CMW is available in the capsule or powder form. We suggest five capsules three times per day or two dessertspoons per day of the bulk powder. The most common way of taking the CMW powder is mixing one dessertspoon in a cup of warm water. Some customers like CMW in vegetable juices like celery, beet, carrot, or tomato juice. Others enjoy adding it to tea, yoghurt, soup, and casseroles, or sprinkling it on top of salads or fruit.
