Where can you find all these nutrients required to boost the immune system? Is there a single food that contains all these? Does camel milk boost immunity?
Well, we’d like to say sure! We like to believe that camel milk is the answer to it all!
Did you know? Our bodies are constantly fighting an arms race to keep them safe from viruses and bacteria. It is the negative bacteria that affect the first line of defense. This is where the immune system comes in, which, by sending out various weapons, helps destroy the infectious invaders!
You won’t be able to notice a thing, but even while you read this, your body is fighting off hundreds of thousands of potential infectious bacteria and viruses.
What does it have, from a medical point of view? Camel milk has two significant ingredients, namely Lactoferrin and Immunoglobulins. There have been various studies, which state that camel milk, due to the presence of lactoferrin, has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and even antioxidant properties. It has also been said that lactoferrin gives camel milk its immune-boosting properties, which help in the activation of the different immune cells in the body.
More importantly, the immunoglobulins present in camel milk also have therapeutic properties, because they contain only two heavy chains of fatty acids, and the light chains are absent. This is the reason behind the easy digestible property of camel milk, and this is why the immunoglobulins present do not disappear. There is further research going on for different diseases and not just their immunity-boosting properties.
