Raw Milk is Healthy - Know More
We all know the merits of milk consumption. But hold on, did
you say 'raw' milk?? Yes, of course. Now you will be confused
as to what is meant by raw milk. Raw milk is the milk that we
get from the cow, buffalo or goat in its unadulterated and
unprocessed natural form. It does not undergo the process of
pasteurization or homogenization. The milk that is available in
grocery stores is processed. That is, it is pasteurized
(heated) and ultra pasteurized (heated all over again) to get
rid of the bacteria. In this process, sometimes the healthy
bacteria also can get destroyed along with the other nutritious
substances and enzymes that are present in the milk.
You may have a doubt whether it is safe to drink raw milk.
That is quite natural. But if you get your raw milk from a
local dairy farm, where the cows are fed healthy grass, then
there are no issues of safety. This is what our forefathers
drank in olden days, when the new processes like pasteurization
were yet to be invented. They never heated their milk, and
drank it directly after milking the cow.
Let us now discuss what makes raw milk a healthy option. Raw
milk consists of all the 22 essential amino acids and is
extremely rich in enzymes. It contains phosphate, which is very
necessary for the calcium absorption. Talking of calcium, raw
milk is the powerhouse of calcium, so you can easily
discontinue your daily dose of calcium supplements.
It is rich in vitamin B12, which is difficult to find in
other sources than meat. Along with this, raw milk is also
contains vitamins A, B and C. Vitamin A is good for the skin
and eyes. Vitamin C is good for building up your immunity.
Scientists have found out that raw milk consists of certain
enzymes and antibodies that actually hamper the growth of
bacteria. It also has lipase, which helps in the digesting
fats. CLA or conjugated linoleic acid, which is known to fight
cancer, is also present in raw milk.
Now comes the question, will I like its taste? I must tell
you it tastes yummy, and has a rich creamy texture, a grade
above the milk you get from the grocery store. Obviously,
anything natural and unprocessed will taste much better than
its processed counterpart. Moreover, it is easy to digest, and
is suitable even for those with a weak digestion. What are you
waiting for? Rush to your nearest dairy farm and begin a
healthy life with raw milk. Tell others you know about it and
relish its taste together.
