Unique Benefits of Camel Milk

Not only is camel milk a “super food” nutritionally, it is antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-autism 1  and has anti-carcinogenic effects; thus millions are turning to this unparalleled dairy product. Additionally, these desert animals are not threatened by climate change and a growing dependence on them can remain sustainable. Human health challenges such as Ebola can be better assisted with camel milk, especially with less nourished populations.

Camel milk is special and unique as camel itself; it contains a higher quantity of noble elements (lactoferrin, Vitamin C, Zn, Insulin-like protein, and calcium etc.) and deficient in damaging substances (cholesterol, calories, and lactose etc.). Lactoferrin2 is iron-containing protein (recently found by scientists in such a high level in camel milk) has been shown to have antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-carcinogenic effects. As camel milk, lactoferrin is unique itself. The world of lactoferrin is continuously exploring by the scientists and diverse health benefits are being investigated. DSC00315

Vitamin C is well known for its anti-infectious qualities and usually found in citrus fruits. As citrus are rarely available in deserted ecosystems, nature gifted these precious ingredients in the form of camel milk. Zinc is a vital part of many enzymes (300) of the human body. This vital mineral is necessary for almost all the important activities of the human body. The high concentration of insulin-like protein (encapsulated in fats) enables it to pass safely from the acidic environment of the stomach. The safe absorption of such protein is instrumental in a high level of insulin in the blood which helps in subsidizing sugar level. Camel! A One in All Creatures. The anti-diabetic attributes of camel milk can be linked with its browsing habits as camel eats from the herbaceous, salt tolerant, drought resistant and nutrients rich plants of its ecosystem. Camel milk is a touchy health promising natural formula for the pregnant woman (low fats and high Ca) and infants/children (as low lactose and high Ca).

  2. Higher in Zinc contents made it very helpful in fighting against flue, cold cough and dust infections in this period of time as the winter season minimizing ambient temperature and cold spells causing respiratory problems. Zinc is incredible in combating infections. Also, Lactoferrin (the magic of camel milk) is organic source of milk protein which has the potential to fight infections and boost immune system.

We do see improvements in him, but doesn’t know what is wrong with his body, Came to about Christina Adams and about camel milk. Then i start hunting to get raw camel milk for him. I tried almost entire part of india, it is available only in Bikaner Rajasthan, which is close to Pakistani border. But there is no facility there to send across to chennai. Am having no contacts to get from Dubai too. Then my neighbor helped me through his one of colleague who happened to be in Dubai for a official visit bought us Camel milk powder, currently we are giving him with a mix of Zerolac, which he use to consume. Am requesting the blog members to help me to get raw camel milk in frozen state, so that i will collect here with same state.
