Raw fermented goat milk can aid in the management and treatment of the following issues:
Goat’s milk contains natural antihistamines, which can help ease allergic reactions and symptoms such as itching and inflammation. Allergy symptoms are exacerbated by an over-reactive immune system, and the probiotics from fermented raw goat milk help to support healthy immune function.
Bone and Joint Health
Milk’s benefit to bones is well known, but it is also rich in vitamin K2, which controls the binding of calcium in bone and tissues, and may also benefit dental health. Raw milk is also the best source of glutathione, an important antioxidant that slows down the body’s degenerative processes. These two nutrients provide a protective function to soft tissues and joints, for ease of mobility as your pet ages.
Cancer and Epilepsy
Cancer cells feed off sugar, and some pet parents opt to put their pet on a keto diet while undergoing treatment or to manage cancer without other treatments. Keto is also a popular diet choice for those with epilepsy. Goat milk has an excellent ratio of fat to protein for supplementing a keto diet. Goat milk is also a good source of taurine, which has important functions in the brain, eyes, digestion, and heart. Taurine is an essential nutrient for cats as they cannot synthesize taurine and must receive sufficient amounts from their diet. But further to these many health benefits of taurine, it also has antineoplastic effects, which means it inhibits or prevents the growth and spread of tumors and malignant cells.
Goat’s milk contains less lactose and is easier to digest than cow’s milk due to its smaller protein and fat molecules. This makes it a great dietary supplement for pets with digestive issues such as IBD and leaky gut, for an extra boost of nutrition that doesn’t put a strain on their compromised digestive tract. Fermenting raw goat’s milk adds beneficial bacteria and probiotics to support the immune system, aid in healthy digestion, regularity, and less gas. Raw fermented goat milk is an especially helpful addition for pets who have just come off a course of antibiotics, as they deplete the natural gut flora in the process of killing off pathogenic bacteria.
Goat’s milk contains high quantities of caprylic acid, which is antimicrobial and used to inhibit yeast growth. In addition to this, the probiotics and enzymes in raw goat’s milk will help to foster a robust colony of healthy gut bacteria, further reducing yeast.
