Tarsul is a product of GutFix Medical, a group of individuals dedicated to bringing health to the whole person by addressing the underlying root of a vast array of diseases and symptoms.
The formula for Tarsul was patented in the late 1980’s as a solution for hemorrhoids. According to many individuals, it really works. Tarsul has a chemical makeup that helps to quickly relieve hemorrhoids, and other symptoms, by striking at their root cause – in your gut.
Another area that Tarsul helps is to fix a “leaky gut” – an intestine with holes in it. The Tarsul formula is a popular tool to fight leaky gut syndrome and candida because it is effective in killing off great amounts of excess yeast, etc. and historically has been used as a “balancer” for the gut.
What Is It?
Potassium Bitartrate = Cream of Tartar
Potassium Bitartrate, commonly know as Cream of Tartar, is a single element found in the GRAPE. This element is not soluble with alcohol, so as the solution – grape juice – changes from sugar based to alcohol based (wine), the potassium bitartrate is forced to the sides of the wine making cask. It forms a crystalline substance around the sides of the wine casks during the fermentation of grape juice to alcohol.
The crude form, also known as beeswing or wine stones or crude tartar or argol, is collected and purified to produce the white, odorless, acidic salt powder used in our formula.
Tartaric acid, known in antiquity as tartar, was first isolated from potassium tartrate, around 800 AD by Persian alchemist Jabir ibn Hayyan. The modern process was developed in 1769 by Swedish chemist CW Scheele. The chirality of tartaric acid was discovered in 1832 by Jean Baptiste Biot, who observed its ability to rotate polarized light. When burned it produces a blue color flame, indicative of its high potassium content. The uses and processes of making cream of tartar were further developed in French cuisine.
Ancient traces of calcium tartrate were found in northern Iran, this is seen as further evidence of a human history of winemaking of more than 7000 years.
Potassium Bitartrate is technically known as a salty acid (or acidic salt).
Cream of Tartar was/is frequently employed in medicine for its diuretic, cathartic, and refrigerant properties.
MSM/ Dietary Organic Sulfur
What is MSM?
For centuries, sulfur was refined and called Flowers of Sulfur. Then in the 1980’s a method of further refrinement was discovered and introduced as MSM or organic sulfur, a compound that occurs naturally in nature and in the human body. SULFUR is necessary for the structure of every living cell in the human body. Hormones, enzymes, antibodies, and antioxidants all depend on it. And because the body utilizes and expends it on a daily basis, MSM must be continually replenished for optimal nutrition and health.
Birth of a Supplement
Methylsulfonyl-methane, or MSM, has been present in the oceans, soil, and atmosphere of Earth for eons. It has been collected by plants and eaten by animals for nearly as long. It is part of nature’s great sulfur cycle, upon which all life depends. Although the technology to produce MSM has been known for many years, the nutritional benefits were unknown until discovered by chemical researcher Robert J. Herschler in the early 1980s.
Where Does MSM Come From?
MSM originates in the oceans where microscopic plankton release sulfur compounds into seawater, which is quickly converted to DMS, a volatile sulfur compound that escapes into the atmosphere. In this suspended, gaseous state, the DMS reacts with ozone and ultraviolet sunlight to create DMSO and DMSO2, known as MSM. MSM then falls to the earth with the rain, where it is collected and concentrated in plants.
Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial “harvesting” of MSM is not possible. MSM is produced by oxidizing DMSO. This process replicates the exact natural compound.
