Camelicious Camel Milk
Boosts Immune System
Supports Optimum Gut Health
Why is Camel Milk so Beneficial?
Camel milk is highly nutritious because its packed with vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamins C, A, E, D, B group, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.
Camel milk also has some very unique health benefits because it provides potent anti-bacterial, anti-viral, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support.
Camel milk does not contain A1 beta casein or beta lactoglobulin, two of the proteins in cow milk that cause allergies for children. It is low in lactose and so is usually very well tolerated by children who are lactose intolerant.
Camel milk has a lower pH than other milk, so upon entering the stomach it does not break down into casein and whey and therefore does not break into casomorphins. Casomorphin creation from cow milk consumption in children leads to cravings for cow milk, and can increase symptoms in children with cognitive and behavioral issues. (10)
Cow milk can increase symptoms in children with cognitive and behavioral issues.
Camel Milk’s Effect on Gut Health
Camel milk contains over 120 strains of lactic acid bacteria which is very beneficial for the gut microbiome (the gut microbiome describes the trillions of microorganisms that live in the intestinal tract.)
Lactic acid bacteria may prevent the adhesion of Staphylococcus Aureus and inhibit pathogenic E.Coli in the gastrointestinal tract.
Camel milk contains significant amounts of molecules that can help restore the normal mucous lining of the intestine, improve the protective abilities of the mucous lining and indirectly bring down inflammation. The molecules are: Immunoglobulins, Lactoferrin, Lactoperoxidase, Peptidoglycan Recognition Protein, and Lysozyme.
Immune System Benefits of Camel Milk
Many children with special needs have immune system challenges: inability to fight bacterial, viral and other infections and states of chronic inflammation, allergy and autoimmunity. (2, 10)
Camel milk contains immunoglobulins (antibodies) and protective proteins, such as Lactoferrin and Lysozyme, that support the adaptive immune system and work with the innate immune system, and contribute to its capacity to fight infection.
Camel milk contains antibodies that are smaller than regular antibodies, and so are referred to as nanobodies. In fact, camel milk has twice the number of antibodies as found in human breast milk.
These nanobodies have the same structure as human antibodies but because of their smaller size they can better penetrate tissues and organs to fight infection and aid repair. (10)
Camel milk may be useful in addressing immune system dysregulation and rehabilitation of the immune system.
Camel Milk is a Potent Antioxidant
Many children with special needs have been found to be very sensitive to oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in a body. Free radicals can cause large chain chemical reactions in a child’s body because they react so easily with other molecules.
A study evaluated the effect of camel milk consumption on oxidative stress biomarkers in children, by measuring the plasma levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase, and myeloperoxidase before and 2 weeks after camel milk consumption, using the ELISA technique. All measured parameters exhibited significant increase after camel milk consumption. These findings suggest that camel milk could play an important role in decreasing oxidative stress. (5)
