My husband used to tell me that, when he was a child, he only drank goat’s milk. He was allergic to the popular milk brands in the market so his parents made him drink goat’s milk.
Based on this picture, I must say goat’s milk made him one very healthy kid! 👍🏻
I used to laugh about my husband’s anecdote because I wasn’t aware of the benefits of drinking goat’s milk. Let’s face it, when it comes to milk, goat’s milk isn’t the popular choice. But upon learning about its benefits, I realized that it’s actually a legit healthy drink. 🥛
Benefits of Drinking Goat’s Milk
1. Naturally More Complete
Goats produce their milk through Apocrine Secretion, where milk fat and bioactive components in mammary secretory cells are enveloped by cell membranes as they are secreted. As a result, the milk produced by goats has naturally occurring bioactive components such as:
- Polyamines – good for intestinal cell growth and digestive capacity development
- Nucleotides – good for gastrointestinal health, maturation and recovery
- Free Amino Acids and Glutamic Acid – good for immunity and gut energy
- Taurine – good for bile salt formation (necessary for fat digestion), brain and retina development
- Growth Factors such as IGF1 and TGF Beta – good for immunity and growth development
2. Easier to Digest
Casein, the solid part of the milk protein, produces curds in our stomach. Compared to milk sourced from other animals, goat’s milk produces a very loose curd structure with a high proportion of water that is easily broken apart, thus facilitating easier digestion of milk proteins.
3. Less Allergenic
β-Lactoglobulin is the whey protein that stimulates milk protein allergies. Compared with milk from other animals, goat milk has the lowest levels of β-Lactoglobulin, making it less allergenic for people. So if you or your child is allergic to milk sourced from other animals, you may want to try drinking goat’s milk.
4. With more CPP
Casein Posphopeptides (CPP) binds minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. With more CPP, goat milk has better solubility and absorption of minerals.
