As recorded in Compendium of Materia Medica; “Camel milk,  cold, non-toxic, can invigorate spleen-stomach and replenish vitality, and strengthen tendons and bones, so that people won’t feel hungry after drinking it.camel milk china.jpg

As recorded in drugs commonly used by Uighur Medicine: “Camel Milk is sweet taste with cream flavor, free of sense of adhesion, a little bitter, and can significantly strengthen spleen and invigorate stomach, nourish the five internal organs and repair the impairments of those organs, strengthen tendons and bones, and recover the vital essence and marrow, so that people won’t feel hungry or thirsty after drinking it.”About Camel Milk~With Bactrian Perspectives

In the blogs published before; almost all the information reported is about the dromedary camel. I was looking if the traditional healers think the same about the Bactrian camels’ milk or not. So, I found a lot of information. A short book I received from the Xinjiang Wangyuan Camel Milk Industry is really full of information. They are really doing a great job.

With thanks to ‘Xinjiang Wangyuan Camel Milk Industry.
