THE GOLDEN HEALTH SERIES | Part 5: The 5 Health Benefits of Eating Gold
While most people are very aware of the health benefits of eating gold, it’s surprising how few people know about them all. You’ve probably seen the Salt Bae gold stake on the internet a lot of times. But let’s be honest, not all of us can go to Dubai and spend $1000 on a stake! That’s why we have compiled this list of the top 5 health benefits of eating gold to help educate those who are interested in improving their diet and overall health but don’t know where to start (and don’t want to spend a fortune in Salt Bae’s restaurant)!
In this article, you will find all kinds of great information about the many ways that gold can benefit your health, including tips and tricks to help you incorporate it into your daily routine.
Here are the five health benefits of eating gold that you didn’t know about before.
1. Help with fertility
Gold is a key ingredient in many traditional medicines and has been used to treat a variety of ailments for centuries. Though modern science has yet to confirm many of the claims made about gold's healing properties, there is some evidence that suggests gold can be beneficial for fertility.
For example, one study found that gold nanoparticles were able to improve the quality of sperm in rats. Additionally, gold is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties, which could help reduce the risk of fertility problems caused by inflammation. Scientific Reports from 2017 note that, for thousands of years, the traditional Indian Ayurvedic approach to healing has involved the use of incinerated gold ash. It has been claimed that gold ash, also called Swarna Bhasma, can be beneficial for those attempting to conceive. Dr. Tabitha Cranie, M.D. of Northwest Medical Plus claims that Swarna Bhasma can treat male infertility. Researchers have conducted small studies to test the theory, but they note that further analysis is needed. So stay tuned!
2. Boost memory
According to recent studies, gold can help improve your memory. The research showed that participants who ate gold felt more alert and had better memories than those who didn't eat gold. Gold is thought to boost memory by increasing the levels of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps with learning and memory. Gold also helps improve blood circulation and oxygenation in the brain, which is both important for cognitive function.
According to Liana Werner-Gray, bestselling author and certified nutritionist who studies edible gold, some modern researchers have concluded that it can improve brain function and nerve structure. Due to its capability to reduce stress, repair the brain, and boost the immune response to oxidative stress, it might be helpful for those suffering from anxiety.
3. Reduces disease activity and joint inflammation
Many people are surprised to learn that gold can have health benefits. For centuries, people have used gold for medicinal purposes. It is thought to help reduce disease activity and joint inflammation, and it’s also believed to improve circulation and promote healing. Some people even believe that gold can help treat conditions like arthritis and cancer (we covered the topic of cancer in Part 4: The mysterious health benefit of gold).
Gold also has pain relieving properties, although it’s not clear how it works. One study looked at 12 people with joint inflammation who took either one gram of gold per day or a placebo for six weeks. At the end of that time, those who had taken gold experienced significantly less joint pain and swelling compared to those taking a placebo. This might sound amazing, but always speak to your doctor before experimenting with your diet!
4. Encourages hair growth
Did you know that gold can actually encourage hair growth? That's right - the element has been used in traditional medicine for centuries to help improve hair health. Gold is thought to stimulate hair growth by increasing blood circulation to the scalp. It also helps to reduce inflammation and can even be used to treat dandruff. Plus, it's a great way to add some extra shine to your locks!
5. Helps in Lymphatic Drainage
Many people are unaware that it is possible to improve your lymphatic system. Lymph nodes, which are located throughout your body and take part in detoxification, are key organs in lymphatic drainage. The good news is that they can be improved through proper diet and exercise; increasing how much exercise and adding a bit of gold to your diet can help keep your lymphatic system healthy. You'll find that many foods contain antioxidants that help fight oxidative stress, helping maintain a balanced healthy state for your whole body. It's an important part of your immune system, and it can be helped by adding gold to your meals.
