Tetraena qatarensis synonym Zygophyllum qatarense, a highly resilient perennial shrub of the desert

Tetraena qataransis is highly adapted to the challenging climatic conditions of the desert. The flora sustains in the desert ecosystem since unknown times and evolved in tune with the discourse of nature and climate change. Sometimes it is the only hope for food for the camels. It is full of medicinal characteristics and transfers the medicinal ingredients to the human and camel via milk.

Though the camels love to eat the tenderous part of the bush but Zygophyllum is very strong, spread with many trunks, with deep roots, can sustain livelihood in the desert, and provides an opportunity of a healthy desert ecosystem as the bushes like Zygo are providing shelter, food, and even water and salts to the wildlife in the wilderness of the desert.

Tetraena qatarensissynonym Zygophyllum qatarense commonly known as Harm, Hadidi & Thulin is a highly resilient shrub of the desert, halophytic and xerophytic. In my text, I have commonly used the word Zygophyllum qatarense

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetraena_qatarensis

I have learned much about the camels, their preferences, and the desert’s flora. Zygophyllum has a very bitter taste and saltish plant because of its’ high salts contents and some level of alkaloids (which depress the appetite of the animals, though camels have higher tolerable levels for alkaloids). Such biochemical molecules in the bushes like Zygophyllum sp. depress the appetite as well as poisonous for some types of livestock. Producing such molecules (alkaloids, saponin, etc) is the strategy of the plants to save their race from the grazing animals, therefore Zygophylum qatarense is browsed by camels to a certain level but not minimized to the ground level.

ARKBIODIV.COM

Camel is a gift of nature, gifted to the drought stricken people of the planet earth. The human wisdom decided to domesticate the animal which can cope with the harsh and hostile ecosystems emerged with the onset of the natural climate change thousands of years before. The wisdom worked very well and selected the incredible camel for this task. The main and the important task given to the camel was to provide food in the conditions where other type of livestock had difficulties to sustain.

The Biological Bullets in Camel Milk Shoot the Cancerous Cells

As we know the camel milk is widely appreciated as the natural pharmacy, all because of the biological ingredients found in the camel milk in a very unique combination. The camel milk contains lactoperoxidase which possesses anti-tumor activity. Inclusion of peptidoglycan recognition protein in the milk was firstly found in camel milk which can fight breast cancer by taking over metastasis.

CaM has Smaller Antibodies

The CaM antibodies are several times smaller than those produced by other animals including humans. Recently discovered ‘nanobodies,’ can enter tissues and cells that other antibodies cannot. They can even interfere with enzyme binding sites, contributing to camels’ remarkable disease resistance. Their size and ability make them potentially valuable in biomedical research (diagnosis) on a broad range of diseases including cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and atherosclerosis.

Fake Camel Milk, a Threat to our Health

Human’s greed is far to be satisfied with anything. Some people even do not hesitate to sell fake items and earn money, which is very painful and dangerous.

As the camel milk (CaM) is making its space in the important functional foods globally with the same pace the fake CaM is coming in the market.

One of the most important and prominent example is ‘SUSU UNTA CAMEL MILK‘, claiming importing from Malasia where the camels are only in the zoo. Tons of the fake CaM powder are imported in Pakistan and delivered with the name of pure camel milk.

Look the level of fraud, using the word Halal.

Here is the link of the company selling fake CaM in Karachi, look at their claims. http://www.findglocal.com/PK/Karachi/531780563588892/Susunta-Camel-Milk

Look at their claims, very sad state of situation. I humbly request the authorities to please intervene in the situation and punish such fake greedy people to fool the people and play with their health.

Camel Milk Lover and Businessman Mike Eng from Malaysia

My friend Mike from Malaysia visited region given in the address but did not find anything over there. The address given lead to the petrol/gas station.

The address of the location for the camel milk business in Malaysia

A place with the name of Kelantan in Malaysia is claimed as the production unit for the camel milk. Mr. Mike told that the location is such a big lie, there is no single camel. His wife is from the region where they claim of a camel farm. Also, being a tropical country Malasya cannot be a place to have a camel dairying facility. Mr. Mike told that “They claim to have a farm in Kelantan, Malaysia. In additional to the factory.Hey, my wife is from the same state….. nothing to say.”

This link http://appkel2.moh.gov.my/dirfsq/index.php/dirfsq/cari_syarikat tells the local state government approved for using the Mesti certification logo. Only susu kambing (goat). In the list #50 is the suspected farm/factory.

The company website in Pakistan claims that they produce 500 kg camel milk powder daily in Malasya which is another big joke. To make this amount of powder a fresh milk more than 5000 liter is required which can be acheived from more than 500 camels.

A HUMBLE APPEAL FROM AUTHORITES IN PAKISTAN

Please help me in spreading this information and send and share with the authorities in Pakistan to take timely action and stop this wrong and unhealthy exercies. The culprit/s must face legal process and proper punishment.

A Question Regarding the Demand of Camel Milk

Camel milk is well appreciated as a natural pharmacy. The health concious people does not care to spend more money per liter milk of camel. The trend for camel milk increased manifold in the last 15 years but the trend is now rather static or somehow declined amid the COVID19. What do you think about this treand, please respond.

The camel milk is no more the food of Nomads and Beduins only but also a food of choice for the modern and health concious people around the world. The camel milk have made its space among the non-camel worl and it is now considered as a neatural pharmacy and super food.

The happy camel in the natural world

The demand for camel milk increased manifold over the last 15 years, two main drivers are behind this rise; 1. Processing of CaM and awareness about the CaM.
Camel milk is a proven immune booster and anti-infectious along with other important healing properties. Presently the first role is very important because of the COVID19 issue. We expect a sharp rise in the demand for the CaM, but practically, the sale of the CaM shrank and couldn’t sustain its pace compared to last years (2018-2019).
This is a real question, why the demand or the flow declined? I table this question before you and wait for your technical answer. In my point of view, this decline is because of the logistic complications following the negative propaganda linking COVID19 and the MERS altogether.
Waiting and looking forward

Camel has tremendous potential of milk production

Survey on Milk Preference. A preliminary Report

The likeness level for camel milk is increasing and the people from non-traditional camel backgrounds are admiring camel milk as a supper dairy product and a natural pharmacy. This trend is going up and gives a very clear prediction of high demands for the camel milk in the near future.

Different people, societies, and age groups of people have different choices for different types of milk. Some like cow milk but the others like goat, ewe, cow or buffalo milk. I used a survey to know the preference of the people for milk. There were only 4 options on Linkedin and Twitter for voting. I asked for voting on 4 species’ milk, i.e. Cow, camel, buffalo, and goat.

Just as preliminary findings, I share some important points from the LinkedIn survey, where 145 people voted in one day with the top priority was the cow milk (42%), followed by buffalo milk (27%) and camel milk (23%) and the last was the goat milk (8%). The survey is for a week period both on Linkedin and Twitter.

It means there is very good awareness and preference level for the camel milk as it was considered a very traditional milk for northwest & horn of Africa and Arabian peninsula. Many participants from Europe, USA and Australia voted for camel milk. It is really a very appealing and pleasant trend.

Conclusion

The likeness level for camel milk is increasing and the people from non-traditional camel backgrounds are admiring camel milk as a supper dairy product and a natural pharmacy. This trend is going up and gives a very clear prediction of high demands for the camel milk in the near future.

I ask you to please participate in the survey
