TRY GOAT MILK
FOR BETTER HEALTH
The Journal of American Medicine calls goat milk “the most complete food known.” If traditional cow milk products upset your tummy, give goat milk a try. Compared to cow milk, goat milk is higher in many vitamins and minerals, including calcium, Vitamins A, B6, B12, and E, and potassium. Goat milk is more digestible than cow milk and may be a good alternative for those with lactose intolerance. The protein said to cause many dairy allergies are found in lower concentration in goat milk compared to cow milk. Goat milk is also occasionally recommended for infants and children because it is chemically similar to human milk. If you ask around, you may discover that someone you know drank it on a pediatrician’s recommendation.
It’s easy to add the benefits of goat milk to your diet. Goat cheese is readily available in most areas. Have you tried goat cheese with honey, raspberries, or blueberries? Delicious! And a little goat milk cream in the morning coffee is a nice treat. If you decide to pick up fresh goat milk from a local source, see if you can find out which breed produced it. Some breeds have sweeter and richer milk than others.
Goat milk is not just for drinking. Some of the same benefits goat milk has for food purposes also make it an excellent addition for skin care. Cleopatra, the great Egyptian beauty, reportedly included milk baths and honey in her beauty regimen. Unlike back then, we can walk into almost any store, craft fair, or farmer’s market and pick up bath and beauty products fortified with goat’s milk. Antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and triglycerides found in the milk soothe and moisturize the skin. Goat’s milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids which gently remove dead skin cells as it moisturizes. Once the dead cells are gone, skin renews and heals itself at a faster rate. Some skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis report relief with regular use of goat’s milk soap.
Soaps, lotions, shampoo, and conditioner with goat milk are available almost anywhere. Soaps and lotions made with goat's milk soap blended with essential oils are a treat for the skin and senses. If you need stress relief, a shower or bath with a goat’s milk lavender soap followed by a massage with lavender lotion does the trick. Energize and moisturize those tired feet with a rich peppermint lotion with goat’s milk. Look for a manufacturer who produces these essentials in small batches for the best quality.
Try goat’s milk in the bath, on the dining table, or both. Not only is it delicious, the health benefits make it hard to ignore. Softer skin and a nutrition boost are waiting for you.
