-Organic Facts


While cow’s milk remains one of the most common dairy drinks, it is interesting to note that it may also be the reason why many of us experience gas, bloating, and other forms of indigestion.

When you consider the average cow is given growth hormones, antibiotics, GMO feed, vaccinations, and exposed to toxic conditions, it is no wonder that many humans experience negative health effects from consuming pasteurized milk from cows or beef.

Goat’s milk is a much healthier alternative, especially when it is raw and organic. Goats produce about 2% of the global milk supply; people who consume goat’s milk cite a lower incidence of allergies and digestive complaints.

The Benefits of Goat’s Milk

Goat’s milk supports good health in many ways. It is also void of the negative characteristics of cow’s milk.

Reaction to Inflammation

Some research suggests that one of the main benefits of goat’s milk is that it doesn’t cause inflammation. That’s a big reason why it is easier for people with bowel inflammation to drink goat’s milk, instead of cow’s milk.

Supports Metabolism

Studies performed by the USDA and Prairie View A&M University link goat’s milk to an increased ability to metabolize iron and copper, especially among individuals with digestion and absorption limitations.

Bio-Availability

Goat’s milk has a chemical composition that is much closer to human milk than cow’s milk, it is easier to digest and assimilate in the human body.

“Smaller” Fat

“Smaller” fat? Does that mean it has less fat? Not necessarily, it means that the size of the fat molecules in goat’s milk is much smaller than those found in cow’s milk. This makes goat’s milk easier to digest.

High in Fatty Acids

While cow’s milk is about seventeen percent fatty acids, goat’s milk averages thirty-five percent fatty acids, making it more nutritionally wholesome. In fact, up to 50% of people who experience lactose intolerance to cow’s milk find that they can easily digest goat’s milk, especially if it is raw.

Rich in Calcium

Many people worry that they need to drink cow’s milk to meet their calcium requirements and support bone health. News flash! goat milk is high in calcium, the amino acid tryptophan, and is a more healthy option than cow’s milk.

Anti-Mucousal

Cow’s milk is linked to allergies and excess mucous, goat’s milk is not. Cow’s milk is high in fat, which may increase mucous build-up. Moreover, the fat globules in goat’s milk are one-ninth the size of those in cow’s milk; it’s another possible reason why it does not produce irritation in the gut.

Ultra-Nourishing

Traditionally, goat’s milk has been used to nourish and rejuvenate an overtaxed nervous system. Goat’s milk is also extremely nutrient dense. It has almost 35% of your daily calcium requirements in one cup. One cup of goat’s milk provides 20.0% of the daily requirement of riboflavin and it’s a good source of phosphorous, vitamin B-12, protein, and potassium.

Less Toxic Than Cow’s Milk

Whereas most cow’s milk contains bovine growth hormones and bovine somatotropin, a hormone that artificially increases milk production, goats are rarely given these substances. Because of its use on the fringes of big agriculture, goat’s milk is more nutritious and less toxic.

May Boost Immune System

Goat’s milk contains selenium, an essential trace mineral that supports the immune system.

These are just a few of the many health benefits of goat’s milk. Not only does it provide complete nutrition, but it has fewer additives than cow’s milk. The healthy choice is obvious.
