Maybe you’ve heard that milk products can be bad for us. There are so many people struggling with lactose intolerance, bloating, acne and other unwanted side effects from consuming milk products.
Well, maybe we can make at least one exception to the rule and this is goat milk. Goat milk is very different from cow milk. Not only it is not harmful, actually it is quite beneficial for the human body.
Goat milk has many therapeutic properties – it helps normalizing the gastrointestinal tract’s function, increases hemoglobin level and improves vision. It contains bioactive substances which cannot be found in cow milk. These substances keep the milk edible for about a week compared to 3-4 days for the cow milk. Of course, these nutrients lose their properties with each hour, which means that the nutritious benefits are most potent when the milk is freshly obtained.
Goat milk also contains high quantities of Potassium thus helping the cardiovascular system. Unlike cow milk, it contains six times more Cobalt, which is part of Vitamin B12, regulating the metabolic processes in our bodies.
Well know fact is that goat milk is the closest to human breast milk for its high quantities of beta-casein. It helps children with rickets recover much faster than ones drinking cow milk. It is also beneficial for treating diarrhea and it is even safely given to people with lactose intolerance for it contains least lactose quantities compared to any other milk. This is also because the fat molecules of goat milk are far smaller and much easier to absorb. With about 4% fat, the milk is absorbed almost at 100%.
Comparing cow and goat milk, the latter has higher quality with its more homogenous structure and higher amounts of non-protein nitrogen and thiamine (Vitamin B1). B1 is one of the most essential vitamins in the human body, vital for our survival at each stage of our development.
Many experts state that goat milk is more suitable for us compared to cow milk. Furthermore, it helps people recover from gall stones, fibromas and even child epilepsy.
