Good point, I think the safety of both vitamins and various medicines will become a concern, especially in countries like SA that rely partly on
"little pharma" from India and China.
I saw a documentary on outbreaks of Tryptophan poisoning in the US a while back.
I think it was on the Crime and Investigation Channel, where they've busted many so-called "alternative healers" who knowingly poisoned their
I think this Tryptophan was made in some Asian country, and they stuffed up the process.
Tryptophan was an alternative cure for insomnia, and the amino acid was even encouraged in the early 1990s by doctors.
However, some people got life-ruining side-effects:
It's still around in many countries in "brain-boosters" and other "health products", at much lower dosages.
Urine is indeed used in many cultures, sometimes as a daily tonic, or as drops, or it is even rubbed into the skin. Sources that recommend it range
from the Bible to tribal cultures.
To some it is disgusting, but others drink from the "life-giving waters" like true disciples.
Apparently many of today's sport's drinks have the same stuff as urine, but they taste much better!
Urina is a homeopathic mixture named for it's effects for problems of the urinary system, and it does not contain urine:
Urina is a combination of homoeopathic ingredients that offers support for your bladder and helps your body to overcome bladder infections
naturally. It contains Aconitum napellus which helps to ease sudden onset pain and irritation, Cantharis vesicatoria which is used to soothe the
unbearable burning sensation and Petroselinium which helps to alleviate the sudden urge to urinate.
