Goats’ milk: Key facts
- Goats’ milk has immune boosting properties, perfect for warding off coughs and colds. That’s because goats’ milk contains lots of selenium (significantly more than cows’ milk) to boost our immune systems which often take a hammering over the winter. The zinc in goats’ milk is also more readily absorbed into the body than from cows’ milk too
- A glass of goats’ milk contains more prebiotic compounds (which encourage the growth and activity of ‘friendly’ bacteria in the digestive system, supporting normal gut health and function) and fewer allergenic proteins than cows’ milk, which could help alleviate symptoms of eczema, asthma, bloating, constipation, digestive discomfort and catarrh
- Goats’ milk contains approximately 20% less cholesterol than cows’ milk and the cholesterol it does contain is more readily available for absorption by the body
- Nutrient-rich goats’ milk, cheeses, yogurts and butters are a good source of essential vitamins and minerals and contain plenty of calcium for strong bones and teeth
- Unlike cows’ milk, goats’ milk is non-mucus forming so if you suffer from hay fever, try cutting out cows’ milk and substituting it with goats’ milk to see if it eases your symptoms
