Dr. Raziq is an emerging global visionary. From his background in animal science and hands-on experimentation, he realized the value of camel milk as an exceptional productDr Abdul Raziq Kakar Technical Operation Manager at a Modern Camel Dairy Farm.
But he also had the foresight to view pastoral peoples as valuable cultural reservoirs. He’s a consistent and admired advocate for camels and pastoral knowledge, with deep traditional knowledge of native livestock breeds, husbandry and health systems.He works to sustain animal health and production with a commendable natural approach. As a technical advisor for a large camel diary, he helps drive modern milk usage. His leadership has helped raise awareness of camel milk and it’s my pleasure to consult him as a top camel resource. He is a valued leader in policy planning for the international camel community.

Isiolo, a provincial town about five hours’ drive north of the capital, Nairobi, has become a real camel hub already. Maalim and around thirty other women now bring about five thousand liters of camel milk daily to a distribution point in the center of the provincial town. The women receive support from the Dutch development organization SNV, which helped them finance a cooling tank. “Thanks to the profits of the camel milk I can send my eight children to school, and one even goes to university,” Maalim says, as she hands in her plastic yellow jerry cans full of camel milk.Kenyans turn to camels to cope with climate change
Currently, the milk is transported in passenger buses. But as the milk frequently gets stolen or goes bad when buses break down, the women are trying to get a loan to buy a cooling truck to transport the milk to Nairobi. “We also have plans to produce yogurt, pack our products and to export to Somalia,” she says and adds that an international airport has recently been opened near Isiolo. “We are facing a bright future – thanks to camel milk.”

An important environmental point is that “soft hooved” animals (camels) are far more environmentally sustainable than “hard hooved” animals.
She writes as “My argument leading on from my earlier statements, regarding why Simpson’s conclusion which explicitly implies “do not drink camel’s milk” is unsound is twofold. Firstly from a philosophical perspective and secondly from a scientific perspective.
It is well documented the symbiotic relationship between humans and the non-human world. The necessity, joy, physical and psychological health benefits. This is not new; it is ancient wisdom which is still traveling the world. It is not the “keeping” of non-human animals, be it for food or pleasure but MORE significant how the creatures are kept and how they are killed! My argument for free range and so forth. Furthermore, if one cannot kill an animal, one should therefore not eat the animal. This is ethical and puts one in a special relationship to such animal.
I ask you, Simpson, do you eat meat or any products from an animal? Do you wear leather or wool? By virtue of being “human “, we have all crossed this boundary.
I agree that the killing for killing’s sake, and using the non-human world for human greed, sexual exploitation and money is evil.
My position comes from “Deep Ecology” and an environmental ethic. So it is not wrong to drink any form of milk! It is the way the milk is collected. There is this western MYTH that infiltrated our psyche claiming that milk is unhealthy and causing cruelty in the production. Firstly, it is the pasteurization and homogenization that is killing us and creating allergies and gut problems. You can Google evidence for my claims. Secondly, I agree that many animals are kept in cruel conditions for milking and have their calves taken. This is too general a statement. That inductive reasoning is fallacious.
Camels milk is produced quite differently. I have visited many camel farms that produce milk and they are free range, stress-free and the calves are only taken for short periods, if at all.
An important environmental point is that “soft hooved” animals (camels) are far more environmentally sustainable than “hard hooved” animals.
It is well documented the medicinal properties of camel’s milk! Please research. It is this symbiotic, beautiful relationship that I am talking about. There does not have to be cruelty. Understand through Science what the non-human world, the sentient and non-sentient world has to offer is magnificent and awe inspiring. Many of our medical discoveries and medicines have been achieved this way. That is why we need to embrace and nurture, not have “dominion over”.
I am, for the most part, a vegetarian. I only eat what I can kill. Chicken and fish. I drink camel’s milk straight from the camel. I try and reduce and be aware of my carbon footprint. I do this as I am responsible for my health and well being and try not to consume too much of the health dollar. I am extremely healthy and strong in comparison to many of similar age. Food is medicine and we ought to understand this.
Finally, Simpson your opinion (and that is all it is) if fraught with paradoxes and smacks of “yuppie” ideology, giving very little understanding not only of poor countries that are kept alive on camels milk but furthermore the wonderful life-enhancing gifts that the beloved camel has to offer.”
The camel milk made the artistic accomplishment in Malasia. The story is reported by a friend of mine (Mike). He provided camel milk powder (Camelait brand).Camelait! Al Ain Camel Dairy Products to a disparate daughter of a diabetic patient. My friend was curious to see if its really work or not. The camel milk was tested for sugar control in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, the map is provided in the link below; https://email@example.com,103.5292765,9.25z
Denise NG, the daughter of the patient wrote as ” I was so stressed up when I found out my father has been diagnosed with diabetes, 1 week ago. Mike recommended this product to me. I did not really think it works as my father doesn’t like milk at all. But after I read through the information of this product, I persuaded my father and willing to give it a trial. Good news, My father’s sugar level dropped from 12.9 to 8.3 in 3 days time since he starts drinking camel milk. I was so happy when he told me about this. We mixed camel milk powder with the vegetable juices and Kopikosong Kopi tiam. It’s definitely a good product for diabetic patients. Cheers”
Mike gave some more details as; “medically diagnosed by the doctor a week before for diabetes. He suggested trying camel milk. The daughter got 1 box of 10x25g Camelait, drink daily for 3 days. Each day 25g Camelait milk powder. The patient is not a milk drinker and hates drinking milk, had no choice but tried to see if it really works. On next doctor visit, the blood test showed improvement. He is drinking Camelait since Wednesday (15th February 2017). The doctor checked again on Saturday morning and result shown that big drop”
The results are preliminary and based on limited data. The diet of the patient is not mentioned with the physical activity etc. Further details are required to make a concrete conclusion. I would suggest medical doctors make scientific trials with the camel milk powder, if it really works at the functional level, then it must advocate for recomendations to be used by the diabetic patients.

The philosophy of symbiosis is really great and incredible. All my ideas of natural health are based on this philosophy. I’m never in favor of killing microorganisms in the body, instead, I want to give them the symbiotic liberty of life. But my philosophy is not articulated only around the living things, also the symbiotic balance of hot and cold, dry and wet, secretary and non-secretary etc also have the symbiotic nature. I do not want to go into details of this philosophy.
The gut (gastrointestinal tract) is the backbone of the natural health systems. When the gut’s health, especially its symbiotic health is maintained, other parts of the health remain stable and strong. In my view, the synthetic products, especially antibiotics, snacks, processed food etc disturb the gut symbiotic health and result into a very complicated and ill health.
My studies revealed that there are many measures and natural products helping to keep the gut’s health intact, but the camel milk is really incredible. It promotes the healthy and strong culture of microflora in the gut because of a unique protein in milk (which bypass from the acidic medium of the stomach and reach to the small intestine) which can nurture the microflora in the small intestine and promote natural and sustainable healthUnique Benefits of Camel Milk. I, therefore, promote camel milk.

Not in the Mood? A Tonic for Mature People
Camel milk is use as the aphrodisiac, especially in the stressful conditions of the dry hot weather. The appealing level of Nanobodies in CM making it very special tonic for making the mood. As well as CM is a nervine tonic and helps in good eyesight. The pastoral people depending on camel milk rarely get weak eyesight.
A Natural Recipe for Amazing Skin: The content of niacin (Vitamin B3) in camel milk is remarkably higher than in cow milk. Vitamin B3 supports the function of the digestive system, skin, and nerves, and improves circulation making it a beauty and health tonic. Camel milk contains five times more vitamin C compared to cow milk. Vitamin C is anti-infectious and is very important for human health, especially in dry and deserted areas.
Full Stop to Diabetes
Camel milk contains insulin-like protein and is therefore used to treat Diabetes mellitus. Such insulin is capsulated in fats molecules which cannot be denatured (does not coagulate easily because of fat coating) in the acidic medium of a stomach. Such property of Camel milk enhances protein absorption. A study conducted on Raika people (a camels’ nomad community of Rajasthan India) revealed that the zero percent diabetes incidence persisted only in habitual consumers of camel milk, while non-camel milk consuming Raika had a more standard five to six percent incidence of diabetes.Camel Milk Helps Prevent Diabetes
Ensures Super immune system
The wonderful protein of CM (protective amino acids and immunoglobulin) is a booster of the immune system and nutritional advantages for brain development. CM contains 25-30 times as much lactoferrin as cow milk. Lactoferrin is a fairly recently discovered iron-containing protein that has been shown to have antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-carcinogenic effects. Therefore, a combination of lactoferrin (bactericidal and iron-binding properties) and lysozyme ( an enzyme which catalyzes the destruction of the cell walls of certain bacteria) ensure super immune system. A recent study revealed that camel milk has anti-genotoxic (prevent toxification in gene and prevent mutation) and anti-cytotoxic (prevent toxification in the cell). The Nanobodies play an incredible role in this regard.
A Dedication to the children World
Children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) responding positively after therapy that included camel milk. The low quantity of beta casein and the lack of beta-lactoglobulin are linked to the hypo-allergic effects of camel milk. Because of the low lactose content, it does not cause lactose intolerance problem in infants. CM has 100 times more D-Lactate as compared to cow milk. D-Lactate is very health promising contrary to L-lactate which is toxic and causes an allergy found in cows’ milk. Camel milk can be the best replacement of infant food after the mother’s breast because of its child-friendly lactose.
The Bucket of Healthy Fatty Acids (Fats)
Camels’ milk fat contains the much higher concentration of long-chained fatty acids (C 14 – C 18) than short-chained fatty acids and is, therefore, healthier. The Omega 3 and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) are even more important among the other fatty acids. CM have 3 times more Omega 3 and CLA than naturally grazing cows’ milk. Such compounds are attracting young generations to be kept healthy and attractive. Easy Understandable But Important Features of Camel Milk
Conclusion and Vision
In spite of the uniqueness of camel milk, the awareness among the young generation is very superficial. They prefer Redbull, soda water, Coca Cola, and Pepsi like soft drinks which are a burden on the physiological system of the human body and give very temporary freshness and satisfaction. The taurine (synthetic) in the Redbull is an alarming threat to brain health and has been banned in some Scandinavian countries. I would suggest UAE government promote camel milk among young generations and take it as a part of Emiratization initiatives. UAE is the only country at a global level producing bulk quantity of pasteurized milk which is a pure Emirates product. A wide range of camel milk products are available in the market ranging from Icecream to flavoured milk. Camelait!
