Top 5 Camel Milk Health Benefits
1. Extremely Rich in Nutrients
Camel milk contains more Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Iron, Calcium, B Vitamins, and Potassium than cow’s milk.
It is high in protein -containing over 200+ rare proteins with no additives or preservatives. It’s brimming with probiotics and insulin. It’s easy to digest and has similar properties to colostrum and human breast milk.
Camel milk is low in lactose and saturated fats, while remaining high in Omega-3-fatty acids your body loves.
2. Better for Lactose Intolerance & Milk Allergies
Camel milk is well-tolerated by people who are lactose intolerant. It is the least allergenic animal milk on earth.
Almost all lactose intolerant people can tolerate 18 grams of lactose per day. 1 serving of camel milk (8 oz) contains only 11 grams of lactose.
Camel milk lacks the most common allergen in milk -A1 Beta Casein. Many parents use camel milk as a natural supplement to infant formula.
It’s even given to premature babies in hospitals in the Middle East.
3. Boosts Immunity & may Fight Disease
Camel milk is a nutraceutical: a food containing health-giving additives and medicinal benefits.
Camel whey protein contains lysozymes, immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, and lactoperoxidase, which have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties.
4. May Lower Blood Sugar
Many of our customers have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. They drink camel milk because it contains insulin-like proteins, which may lower blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity.
In fact, there are 52 units of insulin in 1 liter of camel milk!
Cultures that drink camel milk have very low rates of diabetes. A study of a camel breeding community in India found a 0% rate of diabetes among people who regularly consume came milk.
5. May Improve Brain Conditions & Autism
Lots of anecdotal evidence suggests that camel milk has benefits for improving autistic behaviors.
Many claim camel milk improves autistic children’s behavior, communication, speech, movement, ability to make eye contact, and relieves stomach and digestion problems.
Children with autism often have an imbalanced gut, but camel milk’s unique immune boosting and non-allergenic properties help to restore balance in the body.
