Whole Food Kakadu Plum?
By Atom Bergstrom
Re: What about whole food supplements (in capsule form) like Kakadu plum, etc?
The entire plum is a WHOLE food. Are you saying you have a supplement that is the ENTIRE dried plum and not PARTIAL? Nothing is extracted from it?
If so, then it’s OK, but I’ve never found such a commercial product),
Otherwise, chemicals are used to EXTRACT the vitamin C, which is by far NOT the main ingredient.
I’ve never found a food constructed of nothing but vitamin C with no room for protein, fat, enzymes, hormones, minerals, other vitamins, etc.
That would be a rare find, indeed, and I would suspect it was from another planet in another dimension.
If you dry a Kakadu plum, you’ll have a whole food IMPLEMENT.
Or maybe you can buy dried plum powder from someone you trust — a person or business not using additives or excipients.
There are 5,300 milligrams of vitamin C in every 100,000 milligrams of a Kakadu plum (on a good day).
What do you suppose happens to the missing 94,700 milligrams of plum?
If supplement salesmen were car rental salesmen, they might tell you, “Here’s a Cadillac steering wheel. Have a nice drive down to Los Angeles from here in Santa Barbara.”
One of the disadvantages of all that vitamin C is the extremely high level of oxalic acid it transforms into INSIDE the fruit itself … before it even gets transformed into oxalic acid INSIDE your own body.
Oxalic acid is great for your TEETH and oral cavity, but an excess is tough on your kidneys, heart, skin, brain, eyes, nerves, and mucous membranes.
Carnivores may demand an immediate explanation!
