IVRI scientists rejected the claim of “dangerous cow urine” for humans, described cow urine extract as anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and a boon

Cow urine extract is a boon for humans because it is rich in anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Senior scientists of IVRI have claimed this in their research. He has rejected a claim in the past. It was said that cow urine is dangerous for humans. Dr. SK Mendiratta, Dr. Suman Talukdar, Dr. Abhishek, Dr. MK Singh, Dr. SE Jadhav, Dr. GK Sharma, Dr. RS Rathore and AB Pandey under the supervision of Dr. Ravikant Agarwal of IVRI to test the medicinal properties of cow urine scientifically. The team started a research project in 2018. Based on that he concluded that cow urine is a boon for humans. Dr. Triveni Dutt, director of IVRI, said that in the conclusion of the research work, it was found that cow urine extracts have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Its medicinal properties have also been described in ancient scriptures. However, detailed experiments are needed to identify the effect of different breeds of cattle, geographical locations, season, etc. on the antimicrobial and immunostimulating activities and to identify the active compounds responsible for the same.

Cow urine of Sahiwal and Tharparkar cows is better than hybrid breed cows

To avoid the possibility of bacterial contamination in fresh urine of cows at IVRI, the medicinal properties of cow urine extracts were studied in concentrated form. In this research was done on the urine of Sahiwal and Tharparkar cows apart from indigenous and hybrid breeds. The urine of Sahiwal and Tharparkar breeds was found to be highly antibacterial as compared to crossbred cows. Cow urine extract was found to be bactericidal against gram negative bacteria E. coli, Salmonella species, Pseudomonas, Eru ginosa and antibacterial against gram positive bacteria Listeria monocytogenes, Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus.

Cow urine of indigenous cows contains volatile components, remains antibacterial for one year

Cow urine of indigenous cows contains volatile components. Have antibacterial effect even in vaporized state. Antibacterial effect of cow urine extract has been obtained from 1:4 to 1:8 dilution. Storage of cow urine extract at refrigerated temperature did not affect its anti-disease activities even for about 1 year. In another experiment, cow urine extract demonstrated antifungal effects against yeasts (Candida albicans and Malassezia furfur). GCMS profiling of cow urine extract revealed several compounds that may be responsible for its antimicrobial effect
