Raw Goat Milk Benefits

You may ask 'raw goat milk'? Why should I care about it. American's have been 'culturized & advertised' into associating milk with cows when in fact, goat milk is far more healthy for humans. In Maud, Texas goat milk is all we drink - it's God's complete food!

According to the Journal of American Medicine, "Goat's milk is the most complete food known." It contains vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes, protein, and fatty acids that are utilized by your body with ease. In fact, your body can digest goat's milk in just 20 minutes. It takes 2-3 hours to digest cow's milk.

Excerpt from "The Maker's Diet" by Jordan S. Rubin...
'You shall have enough goats' milk for your food, for the food of your household, and the nourishment of your maidservants'. 

The milk consumed in old times differed much from the milk we consume today. The milk of cows and goats and was consumed straight from the animal (it was not pasturized or homogenized), or it was immediately fermented. These 'live' foods provide excellent health benefits in contrast to today's pasturized, homogenized, often skimmed and 'refortified' milk, which is not only less nutritious but also can be potentially harmful and a major cause of allergies and even heart disease.

Below are some of the health benefits attributed to raw goat milk consumption:
  • Goat's milk is less allergic - It does not contain the complex protein that stimulate allergic reactions to cow's milk.) 

  • Goat's milk does not supress the immune system.

  • Goat's milk is easier to digest than cow's milk (An old statistic showed that goat's milk will digest in a baby's stomach in twenty minutes, whereas pasturized cow's milk takes eight hours. The difference is in the structure of the milk.)

  • Goat's milk has more buffering capacity than over the counter antacids. (The USDA and Prairie View A&M University in Texas have confirmed that goat's milk has more acid-buffering capacity than cow's milk, soy infant formula, and nonprescription antacid drugs.)

  • Goat's milk alkalinizes the digestive system. It actually contains an alkaline ash, and it does not produce acid in the intestinal system. Goat's milk helps to increase the pH of the blood stream because it is the dairy product highest in the amino acid L-glutamine. L-glutamine is an alkalinizing amino acid, often recommended by nutritionists.

  • Goat's milk contains twice the healthful medium-chain fatty acids, such as capric and caprylic acids, which are highly antimicrobial. (They actually killed the bacteria used to test for the presence of antibiotics in cow's milk!)

  • Goat's milk does not product mucus; it does not stimulate a defense response from the human immune system.

  • Goat's milk is a rich source of the trace mineral selenium, a necessary nutrient, however, for its immune modulation and antioxidant properties.

Lactose Intolerant?
  • Easier digestion allows the lactose to pass through the intestines more rapidly, not giving it time to ferment or cause an osmotic imbalance. 
  • Goat's milk also contains 7% less lactose than cow milk.
  • Additionally, most lactose intolerant people have found that they can tolerate goat's milk and goat milk products.

Goat's Milk Soothes the Digestive Tract
  • Goat's milk has long been used and recommended as an aid in the treatment of ulcers due to its more effective acid buffering capacity.
  • Children on goat's milk have been observed to sleep through the night and remain more satisfied between meals.

Mother Nature is very Clever
  • Natural milk contains many bioactive components, which serve to retard the growth of harmful organisms, and to protect the health of the person consuming them. Goat's milk contains the same important bioactive components as mother's milk. 
Medicinal properties of goat milk 

The importance of feeding of infants with goat milk has been recognized since ancient days. In developed countries like U.S and South Africa, the goat milk is specifically marketed for the infants. The milk allergy problem common in infants fed with cow milk is rarely encountered when replaced with goat milk and it plays an important role in the formulation of infant formula. This is a proof of the medicinal property of goat milk.

The symptoms like gastrointestinal disturbances, vomiting, colic, diarrhoea, constipation and respiratory problems can be eliminated when goat milk is fed to the infants. The reason cited for the relief in respiratory problems when fed with goat milk can be attributed to the structure of casein micelle of the goat milk. Pasteurized goat milk is well tolerated by the infants with gastro intestinal or respiratory symptoms. Fermented goat milk products are ideal for the persons allergic to cow milk.

The goat milk is naturally homogenized. It forms a soft curd when compared to cow milk and hence helps in easy digestion and absorption. Regular intake of goat milk significantly improves the body weight gain, improved mineralization of skeleton, increased blood serum vitamin, mineral and haemoglobin levels. These points are considered advantageous when compared to consumption of human milk. 

The other medicinal property of goat milk is higher concentration of medium chain fatty acids which play an important role in imparting unique health benefits in mal-absorption syndrome, steatorrhoea, chyluria, hyperlipoproteinaemia and during conditions of cystic fibrosis, gall stones and childhood epilepsy. The medium chain fatty acids minimize cholesterol deposition in the arteries, aid in dissolving cholesterol and gallstones and significantly contribute to normal growth of infants.

Goat Or Cow's Milk Does It Really Make A Difference?

Article by Julie Phillips
Goat Or CowGoat and cow’s milk are nutritionally similar, though definitely not equal. The main difference is that goat's milk has smaller fat globules. This helps to lessen the strain on a child's immature digestive system. Consequently, goat’s milk may reduce the possibility of allergies, asthma and other ailments. Children who are allergic to cows milk often thrive on goat's milk.

Goat’s milk also has a closer protein composition to human milk. This also helps to explain the low allergy rate. Beta caseins are found in both human and goat’s milk. These have a softer curd and easier digestibility than the alfa caseins that are so prevalent in cow's milk. Goat's milk also does not contain Agglutamin. This is the reason fat globules do not cluster, assisting digestion. On average, goats milk contains more calcium, vitamin B6, vitamin A, potassium, niacin, chloride, copper, phosphorous, manganese and selenium. It is slightly lower in folic acid (1), has less arginine and less sulphur-containing amino acids (particularly methionine) but more glycine than cow's milk (2). Goats also are more finicky eaters than cows – meaning they eat a more varied diet, usually richer in minerals. While switching from cow’s milk to goat’s milk, it is recommended you mix a littleof the cow’s milk with the goats milk to help adjust to the new taste.

Goat's milk enriches intestinal flora and can be used to relieve constipation. Cow's milk conversely may result in constipation in children with a sensitive digestion. Laura Morales from the Even Star Goat Dairy in Lowood (near Toowoomba) says that Goat’s milk is also considered to be less phlegm producing.
If the milk is pasteurised, boiling it will assist in the digestion. Pasteurisation partially dismantles the protein structure. This makes the milk more difficult to digest. Boiling the milk finishes the process and decreases the chance of allergic reaction (1).

Ideally however, purchase 'raw' or unpasteurised milk. This has many advantages. Goat's milk is one of the best sources of dietary fluorine, nearly ten times higher than cow's milk. Fluorine helps build immunity and strengthen teeth and bones. Fluorine is depleted during the cooking process so is only present in unpasteurised milk. The chemical "fluoride" does not have the same healing properties (3) and is best avoided wherever possible.

Pasteurisation also destroys the beneficial bacteria that assist in digestion. These can only be replaced by culturing the milk and is why yoghurt is easier to digest than milk. The proteins are pre-digested by the bacterial action of the souring process.

If goat's milk is not available (or the taste is disagreeable), one ways to increase the digestibility of the milk from the cow is to soften the curds by adding gelatin. This will bring it closer to resembling the soft curds of Goat’s milk and mother's milk . Adding gelatin also emulsifies fat and by stabilising the casein (protein), improves the digestibility of the fat, which would otherwise be carried down with the casein in a lump mass. Vomiting, upper respiratory infections, constipation and diarrhea may also be reduced by the addition of gelatin (9). Use one teaspoon per four cups of milk. Prepare the gelatin as per the usual instructions by dissolving it in half a cup of water (or more). Mix with the milk and drink or refrigerate.

In Ayurveda (Indian medicine), fresh cow’s milk is thought to be excellent for those with a strong digestion who want to increase their weight. They believe it is a sattvic food, meaning that it can help develop Spiritual awareness. On the other hand, they also believe that homogenisation makes the fat in the milk nearly indigestible and causes toxic residues (ama) to form in the body (5).

Homogenisation allows the enzyme xanthine oxidase to penetrate the intestinal wall, move into the lymphatic system and then to enter the bloodstream, instead of being excreted as would normally occur. When this enzyme enters the heart and arteries, it scratches and corrodes the membranes, creating primary lesions or scar tissue. The body then releases cholesterol into the bloodstream in an attempt to lay protective fatty material on the scarred areas. This can result in clogging the arteries (5) (1). Homogenisation also makes the fat and cholesterol more susceptible to rancidity and oxidation (7) and creates trans fats in the milk - these are rigid molecules that are so altered that the body doesn't recognise them as natural. (8) Fortunately goat's milk is never homogenised - another plus for it.

In summary, the deciding factors are - does cow's milk agree with the person consuming it? If not, try goat's milk , if this still doesn't agree, life will be no poorer without dairy. If dairy does agree, ensure a quality product is consumed - ideally organic and non-homogenised. The best dairy products of all, are non-pasteurised! More on this in the next issue.

Health Benefits of Goat Milk

Compare the Health Benefits of Goat Milk Versus Cow Milk

Although Americans are accustomed to cow's milk, goat's milk is much more common in most other parts of the world. Goats are hardier than cows, are inexpensive, and take up less space.

Goat's milk is closest to mother's milk than any other food. Goat's milk is a complete protein and contains every essential amino acid. Yet it contains significantly less fat than cow's milk.

Goat milk is easy to digest, even for babies. Goat milk has more medium chain fatty acids than cow milk, which aids in easier digestion. Goat milk fat consists of 35 percent medium chain fatty acids, compared with 17 percent found in cow milk. Almost half of people who are lactose intolerant are able to drink goat's milk.

Three different medium chain fatty acids found in goat milk are thought to have health benefits for people with certain types of diseases, especially diseases involving metabolism. Some of these conditions include cystic fibrosis, gallstones, heart disease, and various digestive problems. Goat milk has three times more of these types of medium chain fatty acids than cow milk.

Goat's milk contains less of the enzyme xanthine oxidase than cow's milk. When this enzyme enters the bloodstream, it can create scar tissue on the heart. This, in turn, causes the body to produce cholesterol for protection. This can be a precursor to arteriosclerosis.

Goat milk contains more vitamin A than cow milk. Cow milk's vitamin A content is partially consistent of carotenoids, which must be turned into vitamin A by the body. All of the vitamin A found in goat milk is pre-formed. This is an advantage to people with health conditions which prevent their bodies from being able to form vitamin A from carotenoids. Goat's milk also contains more riboflavin than cow's milk.

A cup of goat's milk has almost 33 percent of the recommended daily allowance for calcium, compared to almost 30 percent of the recommended daily allowance for calcium in a cup of cow's milk.A cup of goat milk also supplies more protein than a cup of cow milk, almost nine grams of protein compared to about eight grams of protein in cow milk.

An important component present in goat's milk is called biorganic sodium. One of the highest sources of biorganic sodium is goat's milk. Arthritis is thought to be caused by lack of this mineral. The human stomach stores more sodium than any other organ. Therefore, at least some digestive disturbances are thought to be caused by lack of biorganic sodium. The lack of this mineral inhibits the stomach's production of needed enzymes. This in turn causes bloating, even ulcers. The typical American diet of processed foods, sodas, sugar, and alcohol greatly depletes the body of biorganic sodium.

Dr. Bernard Jensen wrote a book titled Goat Milk Magic in which he discusses his findings on goat's milk. He studied people in mountainous regions of Russia. An important element in their diets was goat's milk. Many people in the area were some of the oldest in the world, as well as the healthiest.

Dr. Jensen has concluded that goat's milk has extraordinary healing powers for a variety of conditions. Some health conditions that goat's milk seems to help include allergies, tuberculosis, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, and ulcers. Dr. Jensen's opinion is that goat's milk prevents many degenerative diseases and increases chances of living a long, healthy life.

Goat Milk: A Blessing for Ageing People

Senior woman with milk Elderly nutrition is an important health concern for many adults. As we age, naturally occurring changes in our bodies create challenges for sufficient nutrient intake and absorption.

Goat milk and other goat dairy products have properties that can help meet these challenges to provide elderly adults with their nutritional requirements.
Goat milk is high in calcium, protein, beneficial fats, and many vitamins and minerals.

If you have crossed your golden jubilee anniversary or touching it then you have probably noticed some disturbing changes in your daily routine, the way your body reacts to foods.

In today's world doctors agree that getting minerals from foods in this age is a better choice than getting them from manufactured and inorganic products.

Goat milk also contains less lactose than cow milk which is helpful in preventing the development of allergies. Because goat milk is easier to digest, we can tolerate it better and experience less frequency of smelly, uncomfortable and embarrassing gas. Goat milk is an alkaline food so it doesn't produce unnecessary and potentially dangerous acids in your blood or intestines. Goat milk contain vitamins, especially riboflavin, to help heal your skin, minerals to help you maintain healthy blood pressure, bioorganic sodium to help settle upset stomachs and other serious digestive disorders like chronic indigestion, intestinal irritation, constipation, diarrhoea or even ulcers and bloating.

Goat milk not only contains less fat than cow milk but it also has less of the enzyme called xanthine oxidase which generates the superoxide free radical molecule, which creates scar tissue on the heart if it enters the bloodstream. It's also been proven to cause your body to produce excess cholesterol, which can lead to arteriosclerosis.

With goat milk you can help to soothe your digestive system and intestinal tract, strengthen your immune system and help fight off nasty bugs, ease painful joints, encourage healthy bone growth and even avoid further bone loss and above all balance and regulate blood sugar levels.

Susu kambing mampu tingkat tumbesaran

Siblings staying together and growing up togetherSusu kambing merupakan pilihan makanan terbaik bagi membantu meningkatkan tumbesaran badan manusia kerana ia mempunyai khasiat dan kualiti yang hampir sama dengan susu manusia.

Susu kambing merupakan pilihan yang mempunyai nutrisi tinggi serta kaya dengan protein dan asid amino.

Kandungannya yang penuh dengan khasiat vitamin A, D dan E amat sesuai untuk dijadikan makanan tambahan dalam kehidupan seharian.

Kandungan lemak yang rendah juga boleh membantu merawat pelbagai penyakit seperti jaundice, asma dan gastrik serta sesuai untuk sistem penghadaman yang bermasalah.

Jika dibandingkan, susu kambing adalah lebih mudah dihadam berbanding susu lembu dan ia kaya dengan pelbagai zat galian yang diperlukan manusia.

Susu ini juga boleh membantu manusia untuk menjaga kesihatan kulit dan pembinaan sel-sel darah dalam badan di samping dapat membantu memulihkan masalah tenaga batin.

Segudang Gizi Susu Kambing

See full size image
Susu kambing mempunyai kandungan gizi lengkap dan baik untuk kesehatan. Makanya, susu yang sedikit manis itu menjadi pilihan bagi yang tidak bisa mengkonsumsi susu sapi (lactose intolerance). Ia rendah laktosa sehingga tidak menimbulkan diare. Keunggulan lainnya, susu kambing tidak mengandung beta-lactoglobulin. Senyawa alergen itu sering disebut sebagai pemicu reaksi alergi seperti asma, bendungan saluran pernapasan, infeksi radang telinga, eksim, kemerahan pada kulit, dan gangguan pencernaan makanan. Meski tidak membawa dampak alergi atau berisiko rendah menimbulkan alergi, jangan mengartikan susu kambing dapat dijadikan obat untuk menghilangkan reaksi alergi. 

Sekalipun ada beberapa kasus alergi hilang karena mengkonsumsi susu kambing.Rantai asam lemak susu kambing lebih pendek dibanding susu sapi sehingga lebih mudah dicerna dan diserap sistem pencernaan manusia. Kandungan asam kaprik dan kapriliknya mampu menghambat infeksi terutama yang disebabkan oleh cendawan candida. Susu kambing juga tidak mengandung agglutinin yaitu senyawa yang membuat molekul lemak menggumpal seperti pada susu sapi. Itu sebabnya susu kambing mudah diserap usus halus.

Selain dikonsumsi, susu kambing baik juga untuk perawatan kulit. Sabun yang terbuat dari campuran susu kambing memiliki tingkat keasaman yang menyamai kulit. Efeknya terasa lembut di kulit dan tidak menimbulkan iritasi. Beberapa penelitian melaporkan penggunaan sabun ekstrak susu kambing memulihkan kelainan kulit seperti psoriasis dan eksema.

Karena kandungan proteinnya tinggi, susu kambing sangat baik untuk pertumbuhan dan pembentukan jaringan tubuh. Ia merupakan sumber protein yang murah tetapi bermutu tinggi. Secangkir susu kambing yang setara 244 g mengandung protein 8,7 g. Bandingkan dengan susu sapi yang hanya mengandung protein 8,1 g.Protein yang terdapat pada susu kambing mencakup 22 asam amino termasuk 8 asam amino esensial seperti isoleusin, leusin, dan fenilalanin. Asam amino esensial di dalam tubuh merupakan senyawa penting pembentuk sejumlah senyawa hormon dan jaringan tubuh. Susu kambing juga sumber mineral kalsium, fosfor, kalium, riboflavin (vitamin B2), dan protein.

Anak yang mengkonsumsi susu kambing memiliki kepadatan tulang yang baik, kadar hemoglobin meningkat, serta kecukupan vitamin A, B1, B2 dan B3 yang penting untuk pertumbuhan dan perkembangan sel otak dan saraf. Asam amino yang mengandung unsur belerang metionin, sistin, dan sistein penting untuk membangun kesehatan otak dan sistem saraf. Sistein dan asam amino lainnya juaga berperan dalam pembentukan sel darah penawar racun (detoksifikasi) bahan-bahan kimia berbahaya yang masuk ke dalam tubuh.

Susu kambing menyumbangkan 32,6% kalsium dan 27,0% fosfor dari kebutuhan dasar harian. Sementara susu sapi hanya memberikan 29,7% kalsium dan 23,2% fosfor dari kebutuhan dasar harian. Sebagai sumber kalsium, susu kambing bagus untuk pemeliharaan kekuatan dan kepadatan tulang. Dalam proses mineralisasi tulang, kalsium dan fosfor membentuk kalsiumfosfat-komponen utama mineral kompleks yang membentuk struktur dan kekuatan kepada tulang.Kalsium melindungi sel usus besar dari risiko kanker akibat zat kimia yang melewatinya, mencegah pengeroposan tulang setelah masa menopause atau radang sendi, mencegah migrain, menurunkan risiko timbulnya gejala sindroma premenstrual haid. 

Ia juga berperan pada sejumlah kegiatan fungsional seperti proses pembekuan darah, merangsang saraf, kontraksi otot, pengaturan aktivitas enzim, pemberdayaan fungsi membran sel, dan pengaturan tekanan darah.Terkait dengan aktivitas fungsional itu, sistem tubuh yang kompleks mengatur jumlah kadar kalsium di dalam darah secara seksama. Tujuannya supaya tidak terjadi kekurangan kadar kalsium di dalam darah. Pengambilan kalsium dari dalam tulang akan terjadi bila asupan kalsium kurang akibat gizi yang tidak berimbang.

Riset terhadap 195 perempuan remaja, usia 10-12 tahun, menunjukkan konsumsi keju yang dibuat dari susu kambing menghasilkan total kepadatan tulang dan ketebalan korteks (lapisan luar) tulang lebih tebal daripada kelompok lainnya. Penelitian dilakukan pada 4 kelompok yaitu kelompok yang diberi keju susu kambing, preparat kalsium, preparat mineral kalsium ditambah vitamin D, dan plasebo. 

Penelitian itu membuktikan bahwa dampak pemberian kalsium dari susu kambing jauh lebih baik ketimbang pemberian sediaan kalsium buatan (kimiawi). Dalam penelitian lain yang dipublikasi The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, susu kambing terbukti mempercepat pembakaran lemak. Dalam penelitian itu, asupan kalsium alami tinggi bersumber dari susu kambing menghasilkan pembakaran lemak 20 kali lebih cepat dibanding yang tidak diberi asupan. Susu kambing juga mengandung riboflavin. Vitamin B2 itu berperan sebagai pembangkit energi berdasar pada reaksi oksidasi yang diperankan oleh flavoprotein-senyawa ikatan protein yang banyak ditemukan di dalam otot jantung dan otot lainnya. 

Manfaat lain riboflavin yaitu menurunkan frekuensi serangan migrain. Ia juga berperan menghambat perusakan sel yang terjadi dalam proses produksi energi. Perusakan sel itu dihambat glutation. Untuk menghambat perusakan sel, senyawa protein yang dihasilkan mitokondria itu memerlukan pembaruan (daur ulang). Di dalam proses daur ulang itu, riboflavin berperan sebagai co-faktor dari enzim glutation reduktase sehingga terjadi reduksi dan oksidasi membentuk glutation yang baru.

Dilihat dari kandungan gizinya, susu kambing tidak kalah dengan susu sapi. Kurangnya minat untuk mengkonsumsi susu kambing salah satunya lebih disebabkan karena anggapan susu kambing tidak boleh dikonsumsi penderita tekanan darah tinggi. Mitos itu tidak benar. Kandungan utama susu kambing yang terdiri dari kalium justru berfungsi menstabilkan tingginya tekanan darah, mengatur fungsi kerja jantung, dan menekan risiko terkena arteriosklerosis.
Pernyataan itu dikuatkan penelitian terhadap lebih dari 40.000 pria Amerika yang mengkonsumsi susu kambing selama 4 tahun. Kesimpulan riset menyatakan kelompok yang mengkonsumsi lebih banyak kalium, ternyata memiliki risiko terserang stroke lebih rendah. Dengan segudang manfaat, susu kambing baik dikonsumsi semua umur. (dr Zen Djaja MD, dokter sekaligus pimpinan Balai Pengobatan Umum Yayasan Tri Dharma, Malang)

Susu Kambing Jadi Pilihan

鲜奶酸奶豆奶该如何取舍 - 虎虎 - 天下之大   知己难求  Kandungan fluorine dan protein tinggi pada susu kambing, membuat susu ini banyak diminati keluarga Indonesia. Selama ini masyarakat Indonesia belum familier dengan susu kambing. Jika dibandingkan dengan susu sapi, susu kambing pun biasanya dikonsumsi sekadarnya saja, atau lebih karena susu ini dianggap mampu menyembuhkan berbagai jenis penyakit. Susu kambing rata-rata banyak dikonsumsi di Timur Tengah sejak 7000 SM. Padahal, susu kambing memiliki protein terbaik setelah telur dan hampir setara dengan ASI. Susu kambing terbaik adalah susu yang segar (raw goat milk).

Proses memasak susu kambing yang kurang tepat dapat merusak kandungan mineral yang berkhasiat sebagai antiseptik dan pelindung jaringan paru-paru. Namun, dengan pengolahan yang baik, susu kambing dapat dikonsumsi dalam bentuk olahan seperti yoghurt dan keju.

Kandungan fluorine yang terdapat pada susu kambing berkisar 10 sampai 100 kali lebih besar dibandingkan susu sapi. Kandungan fluorine bermanfaat sebagai antiseptik alami dan dapat membantu menekan pembiakan bakteri di dalam tubuh. Bisa membantu pencernaan dan menetralisir asam lambung, menyembuhkan reaksi-reaksi alergi pada kulit, saluran napas dan pencernaan.

Hal tersebut telah dibuktikan seorang ahli nutrisi Amerika, Dr Bernard Jensen PhD. Dia meneliti manfaat susu kambing yang menjadi salah satu binatang ternaknya di Escondido, New Mexico, Amerika Serikat.

"Karena kandungan gizinya, susu kambing bisa membantu meningkatkan daya tahan tubuh," kata Bernard.

Bernard mengatakan, susu kambing mulai banyak direkomendasikan untuk susu bayi, anak-anak maupun orang dewasa yang alergi terhadap susu sapi. "Susu kambing kini cukup populer meskipun harganya lebih mahal jika dibandingkan susu sapi," katanya.

Adapun susu kambing banyak digunakan sebagai pengganti susu sapi maupun bahan pembuatan makanan bagi bayi-bayi yang alergi terhadap susu sapi.

Gejala alergi terhadap protein susu biasanya timbul pada bayi berumur dua sampai empat minggu. Gejala ini semakin jelas pada saat bayi berumur enam bulan. Bagian tubuh yang terserang alergi adalah saluran pernapasan dan kulit.

"Sebanyak 40 persen orang-orang yang alergi terhadap susu sapi memiliki toleransi yang baik terhadap susu kambing,"kata Bernard.

Keunggulan lain susu kambing adalah susu lebih mudah dicerna. Bahkan, hasil penelitian lainnya menyimpulkan, kelompok anak yang diberi susu kambing memiliki berat badan yang lebih berat jika dibandingkan dengan kelompok anak yang diberi susu sapi.

Dr Rini Damayanti Moedji dan Bernardius T Wahyu Wiryanta dalam buku Khasiat dan Manfaat Susu Kambing, Susu Terbaik dari Hewan Ruminansia memaparkan, beberapa khasiat susu kambing bagi tubuh manusia. Antara lain, susu kambing bersifat antiseptik alami dan membantu menekan pembiakan bakteri dalam tubuh dan bersifat basa (alkaline food) sehingga aman bagi tubuh.

Goat Milk vs Cow Milk

·  Goat milk is more digestible because the fat molecules are one-fifth the size of those from cow milk -- making it easily tolerated by those with compromised digestive systems.

·  Seventy-two percent of the milk used throughout the world is from goats. It is one-third richer than cows milk but more nourishing and easier to digest.

·  The flavor of goat milk is comparable to that of cow milk.  Goat milk has a milder taste.

·  Goat milk has no cream separation because of smaller fat molecules.

·  Goat milk contains pre-formed Vitamin A in the milk fat that allows it to be readily available for use by the body.

·  Goats milk contains a more highly-evolved cholesterol than cows milk, making it more available for absorption to the brain and body. (Cholesterol is essential to the health of the myelin sheaths "white matter" of the nerves in the brain.)

·  Goat milk is closer to human milk and is therefore easily accepted especially by those young or frail.

·  Goat milk has an alkaline reaction the same as mother's milk. Cow milk has an acid reaction

·  Goat milk does not form mucous (phlegm) and is therefore better tolerated by asthmatics and those with allergies.

·  Goat milk contains more chlorine, fluorine and silicon than any other domestic livestock. Chlorine and fluorine are natural germicides and fluorine assists in preventing diabetes.

·  Goat milk contains 2% curd, which precipitates in the stomach. Cows milk is 10% curd.

·  Goats are naturally immune to diseases, such as tuberculosis, and are used in third-world countries to actually cure tuberculosis because of their inherent antibodies.

·  Goats milk is tolerated by a compromised /damaged liver because of the smaller fat molecules and it's naturally homogenized.

·  Goats milk has the ability to "sweeten" the intestinal tract and assist with constipation.

·  Goats milk contains a higher evolved carotene (pro-Vitamin A). Researchers have found this to have cancer preventing properties.
