Camel milk is attracting millions of people at the global level. The main attraction is its health promising characteristics. Camel milk might be super food as well as a natural pharmacy in the ongoing climate change scenario. Human health's challenges like viral outbreaks, super bugs, and allergies etc can be better addressed with the camel milk.

I’m PhD in Animal Agriculture, currently working as a Technical Manager at Al Ain Dairy (Camel Farm), Alain, UAE. I had worked as a Professor and Dean, at the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Lasbela University of Agriculture, Water and Marine Sciences Pakistan (LUAWMS). I work on and write for the subjects of ‘turning camel from a beast of burden to a sustainable farm animal’, agricultural research policies, extensive livestock production systems, food security under climate change context, and sustainable use of genetic resources for food and agriculture.
I’m the founder and head of the Society of Animal, Veterinary and Animal Scientists (SAVES), Founder of the Camel Association of Pakistan and Organizer of the Group Camel4Life. I also work as a freelance scientist working (currently member of steering committee) for Desert Net International (DNI).
I’m an ethnoecologist, ethnobotanist, Ethnovet and ethomedicie researcher and reviewer. I explore deserts and grazing lands for knowledge and understanding.
Many studies have revealed that camel milk (CaM) is a unique food, specially engineered by nature to sustain and value human health in difficult regions of the world. The CaM is rich with the anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and anti-oxidant agents which can decrease the levels of inflammatory factors such as tumor necrosis factor α, interleukins and transforming growth factor-β1 in human and animal samples with inflammatory diseases. This Is Why People Who Consume Camel Milk Are Healthier Than You!
The camel milk is getting space in the food shelves of the world. The camel milk is cooked and make yogurt of it. I hereby share a picture of veggie foodies shared by Dr. Tahereh from Agricultural university Ahwaz Iran.
I love camels as well as the desert. As contrary to the common perception, the deserts are a very rich and beautiful land. I hereby share some snapshots of the beautiful flora and fauna of the Arabian desert. I shot these pictures during my desert walk.
This fly can be seen near the bushes in the desert. I found this in the month of March 2019 in the Arabian desert near Alain.
Very social and friendly. Beautiful and very much resembles with the sand color.
Camel in the sand dunes of the Arabia, near Alain, UAE.
Here is some floral picture.
Highly resilient grass. They have two types of roots, i.e. the spread one on the sand and the deep vertical roots.
The citrulus is one of the important plant of the desert. It helps in soil fertility and also in dune fixation. The fruits of the plants are use as a medicine in many parts of the world.
The Citrulus enrich the soil fertility. We can see a rare grass verity grown on the sand fixed by the citrulus.
Also home to many different fauna species in the desert. See the lizard burrow made in the dune fixed by the citrulus plant
See, how they are firmed in the sand?
The mouse etc eats the seeds of the citrulus fruit

Please support me technically with your suggestions and comments.
The camel products, especially milk is special because of the plants the camel consume as well as the unique genetics of this incredible creature of nature.
Camels bodies are built for harsh desert conditions. Camels have a hard palate at the tops of their mouths and cheeks lined with raised, cone-shaped structures called papillae. Papillae in camels partially consist of keratin, the same hard material that your fingernails are made of. Papillae protect the cheek and mouth from scratches and injuries.
Obesity is one of the most alarming issues of the modern era. Different reseasons have been discussed to be responsible for this problem but still, many more thoughts are emerging and coming into the discussion. I have been following the discussion going on about Gut health and its connection with different aspects of human health and well being What we do and do not know about the gut health.
It is a wide and multidimensional discussion, covering different aspects of the health and the food we eat and the way we live (environment, sleep, stress etc). While following the whole talk and discussion, I have noticed that many aspects of healthy foods are not covered in the topic, here my thoughts go to the camel milk.
CaM is my area of study and the core point of my research and publications. From the last 8 years, I’m trying to write about this natural pharmacy (CaM) in a very general way for the general public to be aware and informed about the superfood. The CaM is really a unique product because of its specially engineered Fatty acids, Peptides, Lactose, nanobodies, minerals composition, casein, whey, and the overall synergic constitutions found in it.
CaM diversify the gut microbiome because of its natural probiotics, GABA and LA bacteria and other constituents (yet to be researched out) and helps in weight control, better detoxification of the body, and boosting the overall vitality of the brain and body. As a personal experience, (taking a glass of CaM daily ) the camel milk really boosts immunity and improve body resistance to the infections (I think both because of the diversification of the Gut Microbiome and the nanobodies and other specialized proteins).
CaM is less insulinogenic diet, meaning not increasing the blood calories abruptly because of its rich ingredients which control the sudden rise of one type of molecule surge in the body. The effect of the CaM really needs control and sophisticated scientific research to better define that conclusion.
CaM wash the body and detoxify the tissues, resulting in the improvement of the all body performance and vitality, resulting in better resistance to diseases and slowing the aging speed. Our bodies are sinking under the burden of the toxins we eat on daily basis without knowing the sources and the consequences of it.
The CaM is a real treasure and blessing of nature, enabling our body to function and sustain in the most difficult era of human history (with perspectives of the food quality). A comprehensive and control scientific research is the utmost need of time to uncover the hidden treasures of the superfood. Health professionals, natural and traditional healers, food scientists and chemists are hereby asked to come forward, make a good team and work on the CaM in different parts of the world.
