Goat Milk Benefits
1. It’s so much easier to digest.
The fat content of cows and goats milk are similar, but the fat globules in goat milk is smaller, making it much easier to digest and absorb all the beneficial nutrients.
Goats milk is also lower in lactose or milk sugars than cows milk is. People who are lactose intolerant would benefit from drinking goats milk as its lower in lactose and therefore making it easier for them to digest.
2. It's lower in allergenic proteins and causes less inflammation.
Those who are intolerant of cows milk are actually only sensitive to one of the proteins found in it, A1 Casein and their digestive system lacks the ability to digest A1. Cows milk is also the number one allergy among children and can even persist into their adulthood. That's owed to
Most people who are intolerant of cow milk are actually sensitive to one of the proteins found in it, A1 casein, and lack the ability to digest A1. Additionally, cow milk is the number one allergy among children and can persist throughout adulthood. That’s because it contains more than 19 additional allergens that can cause allergic reactions — often leading to hives, runny noses abdominal cramping and colic in babies.
Why is A1 so bad for me? This protein is highly inflammatory for some people, and inflammation is at the root of most diseases. A1 casein can contribute to gastrointestinal issues like irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s, colitis and some less obvious problems, like acne, autoimmune diseases and skin issues like eczema.
On the contrary, milk that contains mostly or exclusively A2 casein produces none of these inflammatory effects. Goat milk contains only A2 casein, making it, protein-wise, the closest milk to a woman's breast milk. There are studies suggesting that goat milk, when used after breastfeeding, is less likely to cause an allergic reaction in babies over cow milk.
3. It’s high in calcium and fatty acids and lower in cholesterol.
We all hear how great cows milk is for calcium, but hear very little on goats milk and it being a great source for calcium. It is in fact much richer in minerals with about 33% of our daily recomended intake over 28% with cows milk.
Goat milk also has high levels medium-chain fatty acids. These fatty acids provide an energy boost that isn’t stored as body fat, helping lower cholesterol and can even help treat conditions like coronary diseases and intestinal disorders.
