Unbelievable: Urine of “Gir Cows” has Traces of Gold!

Urine of Gir Cows has traces of Gold : a study substantiated by Junagadh Agricultural University (JAU) proved beyond an iota of doubt. Since ages the medicinal properties of Cow Urine have been discussed, but in the absence of any scientific evidence it wasn’t accepted. However, this freshly conducted extensive research work has put the spotlight back on this topic.

The elaborated research work of 4 years by the scientist at JAU have actually found gold in the urine of Gir cows. The analysis of urine samples of 400 Gir cows done at food testing laboratory of JAU showed traces of Gold ranging from 3 mg to 10 mg from 1 liter cow urine. The precious metal was found in ionic form, which is Gold Salts in soluble water.

Dr. B A Golakia Head of the University’s Biotechnology Department with his team of researchers used Gas chromatography Mass spectrometry (GC-MS) method to test and analyze the urine samples of Gir Cows.

“Till now, we have heard about presence of gold in cow urine from our ancient scriptures and its medicinal properties. Since there was no detailed scientific analysis to prove this, we decided to undertake research on cow urine. We analyzed 400 samples of Gir cow urine and found traces of gold,” Golakia said.

Golakia said the gold from urine can be extracted and solidified using chemical processes. The researchers also screened urine sample of camel, buffaloes, sheep and goat but they did not find any anti-biotic elements.

Of the 5,100 compounds found in Gir cow urine 388 have immense medicinal value that can cure several ailments.

Junagadh Agricultural University has got Accreditation by National Accreditation Board for testing Calibration laboratories (NABL).

“Now, we are working on the use of Gir cow urine on human and plant pathogen. The experiments are being conducted to use it in treatment of human diseases and plant protections,” Golakia added.

Dr. B A Golakia and his team are thinking in terms of taking this research work further by working on the samples of all the all 39 indigenous cow breeds of India. All these kind of research works time and again proves the significance of our ancient scriptures and their scientific relevance which has lost in the transition.
