I discovered many years ago that goat’s cheese was for me, although I have to admit I’ve never tried goat’s milk. I’m not a milk fan in general, so it’s not something I’ve bothered with, but whether it’s goat’s milk, yogurt, or cheese, please consider the many options and health benefits of goat dairy products!
2. Goat’s dairy is a great alternative to organic cow’s dairy because goats are generally cleaner and healthier than cows, which means less antibiotics and drugs in their system.
3. Mucus is not as much of an issue with goat’s dairy. When you’re sick, it’s recommended that you avoid dairy because of its mucus-forming properties, however, goat’s dairy has a unique astringency that prevents (most) mucus formation.
4. Goat’s milk is used to normalize body weight for both under- and over-weight individuals.
5. Fluorine: it builds immunity, strengthens immunity and protects teeth. It is also ten times (10X!) more available in goat’s dairy than cow’s dairy. (Unfortunately, this is lost during pasteurization, so there’s something to be said for raw goat dairy products.)
