Why people choose Goat Milk??
Both cow and goat milk have the same fat content. Nevertheless, the fat globules in goat milk are smaller in size than those of cow milk making it easier to digest and synthesize them. It has a softer curd than cow milk, improving its synthesis by the stomach enzymes.
Cow milk has over 20 different allergens as compared to goat milk, which has fewer allergens that cause dairy sensitivity. Aside from that unpasteurised milk boosts one’s immune system thereby improving one’s tolerance to allergens. More so, goat milk has less lactose than cow milk, meaning that there is reduced sensitivity in people that are lactose intolerant.
Beneficial to the skin
While pasteurised dairy has been shown to have negative effects on one’s skin, raw milk is very different. Fresh goat milk actually improves the skin health. The high vitamin and nutrient content moisturizes the skin, reduces inflammation, and is a remedy for skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis, among other benefits.
Higher calcium content
As compared to cow milk, goat milk has a richer calcium content. Fresh goat milk has an even higher calcium content as opposed to pasteurised milk. Calcium is vital for bone growth, muscle growth and improving muscle and nerve function. Although unproven, there may also be a correlation between calcium and reducing the risk of cancer and hypertension.
The cholesterol content in cow’s milk is considerably higher than that of goat’s milk. The lower cholesterol content means that you have a reduced risk of obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases among other related conditions from drinking goat milk.
