Benefits of Goat’s Milk
Reaction to Inflammation
Some research suggests that one of the main benefits of goat’s milk is that it doesn’t cause inflammation. That’s a big reason why it is easier for people with bowel inflammation to drink goat’s milk, instead of cow’s milk.
Goats require less space and eat less food than cows. Six goats can exist on the same acreage required for two cows.
Studies link goat’s milk to an increased ability to metabolize iron and copper, especially among individuals with digestion and absorption limitations. Besides drinking goat’s milk, you can also take digestive enzyme supplements to support digestion.
A main benefit of goat’s milk is how closely it resembles human breast milk. Because it has a chemical composition that is much closer to human milk than cow’s milk, it is easier to digest and assimilate in the human body.
“Smaller” fat? Does that mean it has less fat? Not necessarily, it means that the size of the fat molecules in goat’s milk are much smaller than those found in cow’s milk. This makes goat’s milk easier to digest.
High in Fatty Acids
While cow’s milk is about seventeen percent fatty acids, goat’s milk averages thirty-five percent fatty acids, making it more nutritionally wholesome. In fact, up to 50% of people who experience lactose intolerance to cow’s milk find that they can easily digest goat’s milk, especially if it is raw.
Rich in Calcium
Many people worry that they need to drink cow’s milk to meet their calcium requirements and support bone health. Goat’s milk is high in calcium, the amino acid tryptophan, and is a more healthy option than cow’s milk.
Cow’s milk is linked to allergies and excess mucous, goat’s milk is not. Cow’s milk is high in fat, which may increase mucous build-up. Moreover, the fat globules in goat’s milk are one-ninth the size of those in cow’s milk; it’s another possible reason why it does not produce irritation in the gut.
In Naturopathic medicine, goats are referred to as bioorganic sodium animals. They are associated with vigor, flexibility, and vitality. Cows are calcium animals known for stability and heaviness. Bioorganic sodium is an important element for supporting joint health. Traditionally, goat’s milk has been used to nourish and rejuvenate an overtaxed nervous system. Goat’s milk is also extremely nutrient dense. It has almost 35% of your daily calcium requirements in one cup. One cup of goat’s milk provides 20.0% of the daily requirement of riboflavin and it’s a good source of phosphorous, vitamin B-12, protein, and potassium.
Less Toxic Than Cow’s Milk
Whereas most cow’s milk contains bovine growth hormones and bovine somatotropin, a hormone that artificially increases milk production, goats are rarely given these substances. Because of its use on the fringes of big agriculture, goat’s milk is more nutritious and less toxic.
May Boost Immune System
Goat’s milk contains selenium, an essential trace mineral that supports the immune system.
Benefits of Free Range Eggs
Our chickens are truly free range. Unlike commercial chicken, they are not kept indoors in environmentally controlled houses throughout the duration of their lives.
A humanely treated chicken is a stress-free chicken. Commercial chickens, on the other hand, are raised in severely cramped quarters where they can hardly move.
Growth Promoter Hormone Free
We do not administer growth promoters or any hormones to our chickens. Commercial chicken farms routinely administer growth promoters and hormones to control micro-organisms in the intestines which in turn results in an unnatural growth rate. Natural herbs are used to control parasites at Mama Africa.
Routine Antibiotics fed to commercial chickens are identical to the ones administered to humans. Overuse of these antibiotics can lead to strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, allowing superbugs to flourish. Mama Africa chickens never get any antibiotics. Natural herbs are used to treat illness, if there are any.
By buying organic or free range, you support the ethical poultry farmers in South Africa who forego large profits in order to bring quality and healthy food to your table!
