Milk is undisputedly the best source of natural calcium. Research shows that calcium supplementation (pills, fortified substitutes like soy, rice, almond) increases greatly the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes because only fraction of calcium from the supplements is absorbed into bones while the rest tends to be deposited in the blood vessels making them rigid and prone to damage. A bottle of 200ml goat milk provides approximately 260mg of natural calcium and is easier to absorb as compered to supplements.
Studies have shown that goat milk can provide additional benefits because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties. Inflammation appears to be a culprit of most modern diseases including cardiovascular and cancer, thus goat milk is a great addition to the contemporary diet with its anti-inflammatory properties.
Goat milk oligosaccharides are not only useful in managing inflammatory bowel disease, but appear to heal intestinal mucosa.
Goat milk can have cardio-protective effects and prevent buildup of fatty deposits in arteries, while it helps to maintain immune homeostasis in immunocompromised people, for example elderly.
Goat milk tends to have a better buffering ability and is good for treating stomach ulcers.
Fresh goat milk is wholesome and is consumed by people of all ages. It has a number of advantages over cow milk and definitely offers a great alternate choice for consumers in Singapore.
