KM - MATOL
KM - Matol was discovered in 1922 by Karl Jurak. It is a unique natural
liquid herbal formula that works together with the body's systems to
enhance general health and well being. This potassium mineral supplement is prepared
by a special process from a combination of minerals and extracts of
traditional botanical plant flowers, foliage, roots and barks (contains
350mg (15ml) of potassium per serving of 1 tablespoon). It
in the mouth, and feeds the
blood cells oxygen throughout the bloodstream to all parts of the body.
Why did Dr. Jurak choose the ingredients he did?
The plants used to make KM were chosen for the specific active
ingredients that occur naturally in each one. After a dedicated search
for a natural solution to common challenges, Dr. Jurak determined the
exact combination of ingredients which would yield the result he
desired. Every ingredient is vital to the product's performance. The
formula is still produced in its purest form, exactly as Dr. Jurak
intended it, with the same remarkable benefits.
Do you make any claims about
Although KM is classified as a therapeutic product in Canada, no
therapeutic claims can be made, and we strictly enforce this policy
with off of our Distributors. However, we do believe people can benefit
from KM in many ways, and we are confident enough to offer a 30 day
Why is KM considered a therapeutic preparation in Canada
and a food supplement in the United States?
Many countries have different criteria for classifying products. What
is considered a food in one country may be considered something
completely different in another. When KM is introduced to another
country, the classification may be different again.
In Canada, the Ministry of Health and Welfare
classifies the KM product as a therapeutic preparation. Consequently,
KM Botanical International Ltd. is required to print a DIN (drug
identification number) on the bottle. In the U.S., Km is classified as
a food supplement and does not require official FDA approval , just as
a loaf of bread or a quart of milk does not require approval. The FDA
does closely monitor the production and distribution of food products
in the United States to ensure safety and quality. They determine
labeling (what is said about the product on the label) and if any of
the product ingredients are unsafe.
Is there anything in KM
that would work against a person's medication?
None of the natural ingredients in KM have been found to have any
effect at all on regular medication. If any contra-indications were
present, Health and Welfare Canada would require us to list them on the
bottle. No such indications exist.
However, DO NOT discontinue medication in any case
without prior consent from your physician. If you are using medication,
begin by taking KM in smaller amounts so your body can adjust. If
your well-being while taking the
product, consult your doctor for direction on reducing medication, but
do not stop taking medication on your own!
Should any secondary effects appear, they will be
brief and will not be severe. Simply stop taking KM for a short period
of time and begin again with a smaller amount. This allows your body to
become accustomed to the formula and allows you to realize the full
benefits of Dr. Jurak's discovery.
What is the
suggested daily amount?
Based on 70 years of experience with KM, Dr. Jurak
recommends one tablespoon twice a day, a total of 30 ml. However, each
person's needs may be different based on weight, metabolism and level
of activity. To determine the most effective level for you, try the
first bottle of KM in different amounts.
The KM bottle lists a different amount according to
Canadian regulations. In Canada, it is necessary to indicate the
MAXIMUM daily intake on the bottle: two tablespoons twice a day, a
total of 60 ml.
person is different, and should adjust the amount of KM they take
according to their own needs.
take the full amount of KM at first?
All people need nutrients in differing amounts. We recommend everyone
try their first bottle of KM in varying amounts to determine their own
needs and tolerances. Begin with a smaller amount mixed with milk,
water or your favorite juice to allow your body to adjust to the
formula. Older people taking prescribed medication and children under
five years old should definitely start with less.
Is KM safe for children?
Yes! They should start with a small amount and
gradually work up to one teaspoon per day. Many children like the
preparation mixed with milk or juice, but they can take it undiluted.
Always check with a health care professional when giving anything to
young children and babies.
Can a woman take KM during pregnancy?
Yes, it is perfectly safe to continue taking KM during pregnancy, just
as you continue eating bread or any other foodstuff. KM is based on a
natural formula that has produced remarkable results for more than 70
years with no harmful side-effects.
What is the shelf life of the product?
In more than 70 years of experience, Dr. Karl Jurak has determined that
KM remains safe for consumption indefinitely under normal conditions.
However, the Canadian government requires that an
expiration date be printed on the bottle according to the Ministry of
Health and Welfare. No such date is required in the United States.
Where do the crystals
at the bottom of the bottle come from,
and how do they affect the formula?
The botanical sediments in KM attract particles of minerals which form
crystalline matter. The amount of crystals found in each bottle may
vary. Generally, the deposits will nor form if a newly formulated
bottle of product is shaken up on a regular basis.
In any case, the crystals do not in any way affect
the preparation because they are simply inert material coming out of
the solution. It takes some six to seven weeks before the crystals form.
If the bottle was kept long enough the crystals
could include some active materials, such as calcium, but the amount
would be insignificant.
What is the mineral content of the product?
The mineral content is calculated as the equivalent
amount in 15 ml or 1 tablespoon:
Potassium 350 mg/15ml
How much potassium is
Iron 1.4 mg/15ml
Iodine 22.4 mcg/15ml
KM contains 350 mg of potassium per 15ml (one tablespoon). This is
approximately equivalent to the amount of potassium found in a large
banana, eight ounces of fresh orange juice or half a cantaloupe. A
therapeutic amount of potassium is 1500 to 4000 mg a day.
Are there vitamins in KM?
Beneficial vitamins occur naturally in some of the plant ingredients
used to make KM. No vitamins are added.
Is there any sodium added to KM?
Absolutely no sodium is added to KM. Tiny trace amounts that may appear
in KM occur naturally in the plant ingredients. However, the amount is
insignificant. No additional sodium is added to the formula.
Does KM contain gluten?
KM does not contain gluten.
Why is Glycerin used in KM?
Karl Jurak used glycerin in his
original formula to sweeten and smooth the taste of the raw botanicals.
Studies have shown that glycerin is 55-75% as sweet as sucrose with
absolutely no negative side effects. All KM products are made
exclusively with non-animal glycerin for better nutritional benefits.
What are Glycerophosphate?
Glycerophosphates are a combination of natural elements joined in a
chemical process that produces the final ingredient.
The potassium, ferric and magnesium
glycerophosphates in KM are an integral part of the original formula
discovered by Karl Jurak in 1922.
Does KM contain
harmful amounts of potassium hydroxide?
KM does not contain harmful levels of potassium hydroxide, or any other
substance. Health authorities in Canada and the United States have
determined that KM is completely safe , simply reconfirming what Dr.
Karl Jurak has known for more than 70 years.
Potassium hydroxide is a naturally occurring
substance found in many plants, fruits and vegetables eaten by millions
of people every day. Consumed in extremely large amounts it can be
potentially dangerous, but the tiny trace amounts that occur in KM are
What is vanillin?
Vanillin is a derivative of a
natural flavoring substance used to improve the taste of raw
botanicals. It was originally an extract of vanilla beans and provides
much the same flavor. Vanillin has also been found in many other
vegetables and woody plants, including coniferous trees.
Are there any stimulants in KM?
There are no stimulants in KM.
Is KM pasteurized?
KM is not pasteurized, nor is it prepared under heat. A cold process is
used to preserve ingredients included in the formula by Dr. Jurak.
freezing affect KM?
Freezing does not affect KM. The bottle could be frozen solid and
thawed without having to be shaken before consumption. We leave
approximately 50cc of headroom so the product is able to expand during
freezing without bursting the bottle.
Does heat affect the product?
Heat does not affect KM. But we would advise you not to expose the
product to extreme temperatures for extended periods of time because
the sealed bottle may explode under increased pressure.
Has there been any medical research or double blind testing conducted
on the product?
No tests other than those originally performed by Dr Karl Jurak in the
process of discovering the KM formula have been performed. Dr. Jurak's
conclusions were concrete, and further testing is not planned. However,
KM has been tested in the finest laboratory in the world for over 70
years, the human body. And it continues to produce remarkable results!
What about people who have allergies associated with the ingredients in
Some people may be seemingly allergic to some ingredients in KM, but
few actually experience a reaction from the product. If possible
allergies are anticipated, a person should start by using a smaller
amount until any reactions can be identified. We recommend starting
with approximately one teaspoon per day.
