According to the Journal of American Medicine, "Goats milk is the most complete food known." Goat's milk and cow's milk do have some similarities in mineral content. However, compared to cow's milk, goat's milk contains 47% more vitamin A, 25% more vitamin B-6, 13% more calcium, 27% more selenium, 134% more potassium and 200% more niacin. Goat's milk also has higher evolved carotene, which researchers have found to have cancer-preventing properties, as well as the necessary enzymes for proper digestion, caprilyic acid to fight off yeast, and conjugated linoleic acid, which is a cancer-fighting fat and natural antihistamine! So if you want an easy and delicious way to give your pet's health a boost, think about adding raw goat's milk to your pet's diet!
What About Fermentation?
Fermentation greatly enhances the nutritional value of raw foods. By increasing the levels of B-vitamins, digestive enzymes, antioxidants and lactic acid, the process of fermenting food helps support a healthy, thriving immune system. It also creates the ultimate source of probiotics! The benefits of adding fermented raw goat's milk to your pet's diet include:
- The probiotics created by the fermentation process help regulate the good and bad bacteria and promote a healthy gut.
