What You Should Know
The Hunza people are proclaimed as a legendary people who live in the Himalayan mountains and supposedly live to be 100 years old. In actuality, they do have a higher rate of living compared to that age than the American rate, but they fall short of miraculous. Many different theories have been proposed as to why they live so long, and many different products have been developed and sold as the secret to their longevity and health. These products have included colloidal mineral formulas, apricot oil, the Microhydrin antioxidant, and others.
The Hunza Miracle bread is just another of these products claimed to be the secret to long life, like another Fountain of Youth. It was supposedly accidentally discovered by a Swedish housewife, and in the early 2000s the recipe was offered for purchase by mailing $20 in cash to a Swedish address or by paying $20 online with a credit card. The website has since been discontinued.
