RAW MILK FACTS:
-Raw cow’s milk has all 8 essential amino acids. Our bodies use amino acids as building blocks for protein. Lactoferrin, an iron-binding protein, improves absorption and assimilation of iron, anti-cancer properties and anti-microbial action against several species of bacteria responsible for dental cavities
-Carbohydrates: Lactose, or milk sugar, is the primary carbohydrate in cow’s milk.
-Raw milk contains bacterially-produced lactase, lipases and phosphatases which help break down starch, lactose (milk sugar), fat and phosphate compounds making milk more digestible and freeing up key minerals. Other enzymes, like catalase, lysozyme and lactoperoxidase help to protect milk from bad bacterial infections. Lactose intollerant people can consume raw grass fed A2 milk without a problem.
-Fats: About two thirds of the fat in milk is saturated. Saturated fats are actually very good for us as they help construct cell membranes and provide energy storage and insulation for delicate organs, as well as helping our bodies use fat-soluble vitamins. Raw milk from A2 grass fed cows also has a significant source of polyunsaturated Omega-6 fatty acid which has shown to lower food allergy reactions, strengthen your immune system, raise your metabolism which helps in losing unnecessary body fat and helps in building your muscles.
-Vitamins & Minerals: Raw milk contains a store house of water and fat soluble vitamins and trace minerals like calcium and phosphorus which can reduce cancer, lowers the risk of osteoporosis, lower risk of kidney stones, and produces strong teeth and bones.
-Enzymes and beneficial bacterial: Raw milk is loaded with good living enzymes and bacteria that help aid in digestion and assimilating vitamins, fats, sugars, proteins and minerals. They also protect your body from the bad bacteria.
Raw milk is a GOOD THING.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD, CLEAN GRASS FED A2 SOURCE!
