The Source for the World’s Next Superfood!
Yes, you read that right.
The concept of superfoods has gained momentum in the recent past, thanks to the increasing number of fitness-conscious folks in the society. When it comes to health, goodness and wellbeing, calorie-sparse and nutrient-thick foods pack a wallop.
Enter camel milk!
Camel milk might sound a tad bit odd to the unacquainted, but it is all the rage in certain parts of the west – North America, Africa, the Middle East, and other Asian regions. It won’t be long before it comes down to your dessert table straight from the desert.
What’s so good about camel milk?
Spare a moment to give this a thought – if camel milk can keep a calf alive and kicking (literally!) in the middle of nowhere for days and weeks and months together, imagine the kind of elements it must possess!
We are not camels but research suggests that this palatable beverage is what we have been yearning for. In fact, not too long ago, CNN ran a piece on their website that reiterated what some people call camel milk – a miracle drug, or pure nectar.
That’s right. The medicinal qualities inherently present in camel milk could help prevent Osteoporosis and could help cure autism, cancer, diabetes, digestive problems, Crone’s disease, food allergies, Lyme disease, hepatitis, eczema, and Rheumatism.
No wonder the nomads of South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East have been consuming it as a health tonic, then.
Made up of goodness
You could argue with the credibility of the aforementioned claims, but you cannot deny the sheer power of the constituents of camel milk. TheFood and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) points out that milk sourced from camels is not only high in vitamin C, but is also known to be rich in iron, B vitamins, calcium, and unsaturated fatty acids.
A superior source of antioxidants, this beverage is 17% protein, and characteristically rich in essential nutrients that the human body needs – nutrients we cannot make ourselves.
Camelicious taste, eh?
Good question! Having been exposed to cow’s milk all your life, is it easy to switch to camel milk?
Well, yes, but it will take some getting used to. Camel milk, in its purest form, tastes a little salty. Regular drinkers reckon it is smooth and natural in taste, unlike the distinctive tang of goat or sheep milk.
Camel Milk Natural Superfood, you say?
Absolutely. If ever you were on the lookout for a superfood that’s delightful in taste, great for your immune system, and easy to include in your daily diet, you’re in for a treat.
If we were to compare it with cow milk or any other milk, the results would be eye-popping. Here’s a glimpse of why camel milk beats your regular milk hands down
It is 3-5 times higher in vitamin C and lower in saturated fat and cholesterol
It is 50% lower on fat
It is 10 times higher in iron
There are no known allergies or reported side effects
It is substantially lower in lactose
It contains a higher percentage of calcium
It is significantly higher in copper, magnesium, manganese, sodium, zinc, and potassium
Need more reasons?
Inquisitive, aren’t you? If the hoofed beast’s milk hasn’t caught your fancy yet, here are some additional reasons to seriously consider consuming it
Moms! Camel milk is the closest one can get (in composition) to human milk and hence, favorable for babies.
Chefs! It can substitute regular milk in all of your baking and cooking activities.
Girls! It possesses a good amount of moisturizing elements, and can have a soothing effect on your skin.
Ladies and gentlemen! The presence of Elastin, vitamin C, and Lanolin (found in soaps and creams) makes it an ideal anti-aging agent.
Everyone! It enhances the development of the human body and is especially useful for the healthy growth of hair, nails, and bones.
Considered ideal for health-conscious individuals, pregnant women, infants, young kids, diabetics, autistic patients, and lactose-intolerant people – basically each one of us – camel milk is swooping down in the Indian markets very soon, and there’s not even a single valid reason why you must refrain from consuming it.
