Health Benefits of Goat milk
We hear a lot about the benefits of goat milk for babies, but the fact is, goat milk can work wonders for the whole family. At a glance, here are the top reasons you should swap to goat milk today.
Goat milk is high in vitamins and minerals
That’s right, goat milk is packed with essential nutrients such as vitamin A and C to boost your immune system, calcium for the formation of strong teeth and bones, and magnesium to support your heart and organ health. Bubs Australia Goat Milk Formula has been specifically designed using the purest goat milk and added necessary vitamins, so you know your little one is consuming all the right things they need to flourish.
It’s easy to digest
There are a few reasons goat milk is gentler on the digestive system.
Firstly, the fat and protein molecules are smaller and easier on the stomach, which means as soon as goat milk hits your tum, it can be digested then absorbed, and all the nutrients can get to work keeping your bub’s (and your own) body in the best shape possible.
As well as this, goat milk is pure A2 beta-casein protein which is easier on the digestive system and results in less wind, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, loose stools, reflux, and even rashes. What’s not to love?
Fewer allergens to absorb
Goat milk has a unique structure of casein protein, containing none of the A1 molecules that are sometimes the cause of sensitivity and intolerance symptoms, such as tummy pain, bloating, diarrhoea, vomiting or nausea. This means that by consuming goat milk, there’s less pressure on the digestive system, and more time for all the good nutrition to get to work.
Goat milk is easy on your liver
While goat milk does contain fat, the good news is they are healthy fats. Medium-chain fatty acids (or MCTs) are absorbed into your body fast and contain a load of positive health benefits such as promoting energy and brain function. MCTs also don’t build up in the liver like other fats and boast anti-inflammatory properties to help keep not only your bub, but you, in tip-top shape.
Pregnant women can benefit too
Baby nutrition doesn’t start when they’re born, but actually when you’re pregnant. Goat milk is great to consume while you’re carrying your little one, so they receive all the necessary vitamins, minerals and healthy fats for their cells to start forming in the best way possible. Goat milk is completely safe to drink while pregnant; just ensure it’s purchased from a commercial producer and is pasteurised.
There are even perks for men
As we’ve discussed, goat milk is high in protein, antioxidants and is easy on the digestive system and liver. Did you know men are twice as likely to show symptoms of heart or liver disease than women? By swapping to goat milk you’ll boost your good nutrition, so you can perform your best while keeping inflammatory diseases at bay.
You can even use goat milk as a face cream
We know that goat milk is packed with the good stuff, but you don’t have to ingest it to receive all the perks. In fact, because of the high levels of vitamin A, C, and E, by rubbing goat milk on your skin you can soften your skin, reduce fine lines and boost collagen production in the skin. Goat milk can even be applied topically to nappy rash and other skin inflammations on babies and toddlers. Goat milk really is special.
However, with all the healthy perks, there are some things to watch out for:
Don’t consume unpasteurised goat milk
Pasteurised milk is the only milk you should give to your bub, as it’s been treated to kill off bad bacteria. When feeding your bub, you need to ensure all the bad bacteria has been removed, as they’re more susceptible to illness than adults. The good news is, Bubs Australia Goat Milk Formula has been treated to the highest standard, so you know your bub is getting all the good nutrients, and none of the bad bacteria
Best for bubs 12 months and over
Breast milk is recommended as the sole source of nutrition for your bub, at least for the first six months, to ensure your little one is receiving all the nutrition they need to thrive. However, if you’re unable to breastfeed, or want to opt for a formula feeding, Bubs Goat Milk Formula is the next best option, as it contains the perfect mix of goat milk, and added nutrients.
