A Nutrient Rich Powerhouse
In 1975, one of the founders of Miles Laboratories, Dr. A. H. Free, published
his book Urinalysis in Clinical Laboratory Practice, in which he remarked that
not only is urine a sterile body compound (purer than distilled water), but that
it is now recognized that urine contains literally thousands of compounds. Among
the urine constituents mentioned in Dr. Free's treatise is a list of nutrients
that will knock your socks off. Here's just a few... Alanine, Arginine, Ascorbic
acid, Allantoin, Amino acids, Bicarbonate, Biotin, Calcium, Creatinine, Cystine,
DHEA, Dopamine, Epinephrine, Folic acid, Glucose, Glutamic acid, Glycine,
Inositol, Iodine, Iron, Lysine, Magnesium, Manganese, Melatonin, Methionine,
Nitrogen, Ornithane, Pantothenic acid, Phenylalaline, Phosphorus, Potassium,
Proteins, Riboflavin, Tryptophan, Tyrosine, Urea, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Zinc/
Stories have been told of individuals who have both lived and died by being
trapped in places without food and water for days. Those that survived did so
because they drank their own urine, those that perished did not. The ones that
died probably could not overcome the mis-informed thoughts that urine is a waste
product of the body. It's not. It's just a substance the body secretes that
contains elements not needed at the time.
Despite what you may have been led to believe about urine, pharmaceutical
companies have grossed billions of dollars from the sale of drugs made from
urine constituents. Research is happening every day in labs attempting to
isolate specific elements of urine so they can create new drugs and patent the
substances. For instance, Pergonal is a fertility drug made from human urine.
1992 sales of this drug were reported at $855 million while it costs a patient
$1400 a month to consume. Urokinase, a urine ingredient, is used in drug form
and sold as a miracle blood clot dissolver for unblocking coronary arteries.
Urea, medically proven to be one of the best moisturizers in the world, is
packaged in expensive creams and lotions. Take the M out of Murine eye drops and
what do you have? Yep. It's made from carbamide - another name for synthetic
