Suero Viv, more then just a powerful sports drink!

Suero Viv is a product from Beyond Organic, a company that just launched in November! 


There are a lot of amazing products, but Suero Viv is one of the most amazing. Because it is made with mostly GREEN-FED Whey Protein it has many healing properties!









Read about the properties bellow as well as my personal testimony.


Parker had come down with the flu. He had thrown up more then three times during the night and continued to do so throughout the morning. That afternoon, my mom decided to give him an apple. She cut it up for him and gave him a few pieces. He took one small bit and immediately ran to the bathroom! It seemed like he couldn't keep anything down! He wasn't really able to drink much water either!
We I decided to give him Suero Viv. He took his first sip, waiting, waiting and than another one. He had drunk most of the bottle (slowly of course) and within 2-3 hours was hungry! I then decided to make him an amasai smoothie (one of his favorites) and he gladly drank that in a heartbeat and said he wanted another one (which he did not get). He then had dinner and to top off the evening homemade popcorn!


The very next morning Kayla had come down with the flu, throwing up nonstop. She couldn't eat or drink ANYTHING! She had thrown up every single hour since 6 in the morning! Around 10:30 I wanted to give her Suero Viv, she really didn't want it but I insisted! She took it and sipped it, she had only taken a few sips and started feeling better. Throughout the day she drank it and that night I made her an amasai smoothie and she even had some dinner as well!

Here are the properties of Suero Viv (Whey of life)



What is Whey? During the manufacture of cheese, milk is curdled by means of rennet. The milk coagulates and a hard part (casein) and a liquid part (whey, also called lactoserum) appear. Whey is therefore the liquid that escapes from the curd when it is left to drain. It is transparent, yellowish-green in colour, and possesses a slightly tart flavour that is fairly pleasant.


The History of Whey. In 1749 a patient in the city of Zurich, Switzerland, who the medical treatments of the time were unable to cure and to whom the doctors were giving little time left to live, journeyed to the mountain village of Gais (in the canton of Appenzell) and was healed of his disease by drinking whey on a daily basis.
Was this patient aware of the past success of treatments based on drinking whey, the liquid known to the Greek doctors of Antiquity as “healing water”, or had he heard the peasants of this mountainous region talk about whey's healing properties?
We don't know but news of this patient, who had survived despite his doctor's terrible diagnosis, soon spread and numerous disease-sufferers flooded to Gais to benefit in turn from the miraculous healing properties of whey. A health spa was soon created in this tiny village. It was followed by the opening of more than 160 others in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. These spas were most active in the middle of the eighteenth century and throughout the nineteenth century. The renowned benefits of the whey cure brought emperors, princes, and aristocrats from all of Europe to take the cure in these spas, to be healed of their ailments or simply to improve their general health.


What is most amazing about whey is that its healing properties have been recognized since antiquity and modern scientific research has only confirmed the knowledge of the ancients. The whey cure is used today just as it was twenty-four centuries ago. Few remedies or cures can boast of such a long history and such unanimous agreement about its virtues.
Hippocrates (466-377 BCE), the father of medicine, recommended whey to his patients. Following him, Galen (131-299 CE), another founding father of medicine, advised his patients about the whey cure. For a time he even directed a treatment centre sponsored by the famous school of Salerno at the foot of the “milk mountain” in Italy, between Sorrento and Naples.
The healing Properties of WheyWhey has numerous healing properties. Contrary to other remedies or foods that act only on a single organ or in a single manner, whey's healing action works in multiple fashions. It acts on the intestines, liver, and kidneys, while encouraging assimilatory and eliminatory functions.

Here are four of its main healing properties.


• With the lactic acid present and that produced by the lactose it contains, whey stimulates intestinal peristalsis.The muscles responsible for intestinal peristalsis can be stimulated in two ways. There is the mechanical way: This is caused by food fiber (wheat bran, oat bran, cellulose contained in fruits and vegetables) filling the intestine, which reflexively triggers the peristaltic process. Then there is the chemical way: This is caused by the presence of specific stimulating substances (the active substances of various medicinal plants or, in the case that concerns us specifically, the lactic acid of whey).Rather than having a purgative effect, whey is a quite gentle laxative. It is effective in the case of intestinal sluggishness as well for both occasional and chronic constipation. It has even sometimes provided excellent results in cases where the intestines have been exhausted by overuse of purges and harsh chemical laxatives. 


• Regenerating the Intestinal Flora. The lactose content of whey inhibits the presence of bacteria that causes putrefaction and encourages the functions performed by the beneficial bacteria. By helping the intestinal flora regenerate, whey has a beneficial effect on the digestive process. When intestinal flora is partially destroyed or imbalanced, the transformation of food is poorly achieved, which can cause a number of chronic digestive disorders. Taking whey regularly can cure these problems and restore normal digestive function. The stools reacquire their normal consistency (neither too hard as is the case with constipation or too soft as occurs with diarrhea) and lose their foul odor. Flatulence and bloating also disappear. Lactose is the nourishment of choice for the beneficial bacteria of intestinal floras, because it allows them to reproduce and multiply much more easily. It is therefore particularly useful to consume whey at times when the microorganisms of the intestinal flora have been destroyed, for example when antibiotics have been taken. 


• Eliminating Excess Water from the Tissues
Bodily tissues hold a certain amount of fluids that are retained there by, among other things, the presence of salt. Consequently, there is a physiologically beneficial salt content in the body. In certain pathological situations, however, this content can increase, which naturally results in an increase of the amount of fluid that is held. Edemas will appear, often in the legs (particularly around the ankles), the hands (making it difficult to remove rings), and the eyelids. Because this additional water content has caused the tissues that make up the various organs to swell, numerous health problems can result, including high blood pressure, blood or lymphatic stasis, and organ congestion.Taking whey, which is rich in potassium, is quite useful in these situations because potassium is the natural enemy of salt and expels it from the body along with the water it has retained. Whey does not create imbalance in the mineral composition of bodily fluids as chemical diuretics can. It expels only excess water the tissues are holding, and not the constituent fluid that is normally present.A large fluid elimination is one of he more visible and spectacular effects of the whey cure. The quantities of urine that are eliminated are clearly higher than the quantities of water ingested, especially when the individual has been retaining water.


• Stimulating Toxin elimination by the KidneysThe kidneys are among the main organs for the elimination of wastes and metabolic residues. They filter wastes out of the blood and eliminate them in a diluted form as urine. The kidneys are constantly working to maintain the composition of the blood as close to its ideal as possible.The wastes eliminated by the kidneys include urea, uric acid, creatinine, salts, and expended minerals. For various reasons however, this elimination can take place in an insufficient manner. Unable to exit the blood, the wastes collect in the body where they can cause various disorders. Gout, for example, is a disease caused by the presence of too much uric acid in the body, acid the kidneys should be eliminating. This disease is displayed by very painful crisis of acute arthritis, generally located in the big toe.Other diseases caused by poor renal elimination include rheumatism, osteoarthritis, and some forms of eczema. The kidneys themselves can also be afflicted when wastes collect in their filters.During a whey cure, the heightened levels of liquid travelling through the kidney support the transport and elimination of toxins. This cleans out the renal filter, thereby increasing the possibilities for waste evacuation, and allows the wastes carried to the kidneys by the blood to be much more easily and copiously eliminated. The end result is a general cleansing of the entire system.Blood analysis after whey cures confirms that the blood has rid itself of numerous wastes. This is also evident by the fact that the symptoms of diseases will diminish in intensity or disappear altogether. 
Principal Indications for the Whey Cure• Antibiotic Treatment• Bladder Infections• Blood Viscosity and High Cholesterol• Constipation or Intestinal Laziness• Diabetes• Fatigue, Lack of Energy and Enthusiasm• Gas and Bloating• Heart Attack, Brain Congestion• Hemorrhoids• High Blood Pressure• Indigestion• Joint Diseases• Kidney Diseases• Kidney Stones• Liver Diseases and Insufficiencies• Muscular Spasms and Cramps• Skin Disorders• Water Retention and Edema• Weight Problems

The Difference With REALLY RAW CHEESE

So what's the difference with Beyond Organic's Really Raw Cheese?

Well there is a BIG difference.

I have been allergic to dairy ever since I was 15 months old! I had a severe reaction when my mom took me for my vaccinations. So what does that have to do with being allergic to dairy? Well I'll tell you!

It was around 7:00 in the evening and my mom was holding me as she was sitting on the coach watching a basketball game! She glanced down at me and noticed my lips turn purple and my eyes roll back. Before she could do anything I was in the middle of having convulsions. She right away called the ambulance and I was rushed to the hospital. Thankful they were able to stabilize me and I was sent home. 
After having that experience my mom went to my pediatrician and he asked her if she had done anything different with me that week.
My mom had thought about it and realized that I had, had vaccinations. She did some research and found out that you should NEVER vaccinate a  child if he/she is allergic to dairy! 

So now that my mom knew I was allergic to dairy she did some searching for a milk substitute. She first started with goats milk. Because children with dairy allergies are normally able to handle that! Well not me, I was severely allergic and broke out in rashes all over my body! 
Then she tried soy milk, I had the same reaction. Finally she tried rice milk, I didn't react and it worked for a while (BTW: rice milk is NOT a HEALTHY choice! It is WAY over processed and a grain, so it can spike your blood sugar levels).

So with telling you all of this, now I want to tell you the amazing thing about Beyond Organic dairy!

The cows that Beyond Organic raises on their ranch are A2 cows. The significants of that is MOST ALL of cattle in the U.S are A1 which means that they carry a genetic component called beta casein A1, which people with dairy allergies CAN'T handle! Beta casein A2 cows DO NOT carry this gene, which means that people like me who are severely allergic to beta casein A1 can handle this dairy! 

CLICK HERE to watch Dr. Axe and Jordan Rubin discuss this matter.

Well it's true, I am a living testimony of that! My other friend who gets severely sick as well when she has dairy is also able to handle this dairy!    

Not only is it tolerable but it is a SUPERFOOD! Yes, a SUPERFOOD. If you think about it, this Beyond Organic dairy is 100% GREEN-FED (not grass-fed, GREEN-FED). So when the cattle eat the nutrient dense herbs forbs and grasses, they digest it and what comes out it the milk is predigested energy from the sun! PLUS you get the full and complete benefit of the dairy because it is REALLY RAW, meaning it is NOT heated a cows body temperature, 101.5 degrees! 

The dairy is PACKED with:

CLA
Calcium 
Vitamin K2 (not what you find in kale)
Magnesium 
Fat soluble vitamin A, E and D
Omega 3 fatty acids
Over 2 BILLION live probiotics
7-10 grams of protein PER ONCE
