4 Fascinating Ways to Use Camel Milk

The use of the superfood camel milk is not new. For thousands of years prior, camel milk had been used for health, skin, food, and many more uses. Being more common in the Middle East, the camel milk market is growing and diverse in more current times. The unique composition of camel milk makes it useful for a number of things. With recent advancements and technology, more opportunities have opened up. While we may love it in the form of skincare, camel milk's uses stretch much further. It is one of the most versatile gifts from nature. Let’s take a look at 4 different ways that you can use camel milk.

1. Treating Diabetes

In the US alone, 1 in 10 people are dealing with diabetes. Camel milk is loaded with vitamins and minerals while being low in fat and cholesterol levels, making it ideal for those with diabetes. According to researchers, camel milk contains 52 units of insulin per liter, which is more than 60% of the average necessary external insulin administration for type 1 diabetics. The high levels of zinc in camel milk make it easier for the insulin to connect to receptors. Many diabetics have explored this natural option to regulate their blood sugar levels and have found promising results. 

2. Baby Formula

Since the day they are born, we only want the best for our babies. But unfortunately, a lot of mothers struggle to lactate, so they must look into other options to supply their baby food. Camel milk has been found to be one of the most beneficial substitutes for babies, where it’s most similar to the milk of humans. On its own, camel milk isn’t quite suitable for babies because of its low fat and carb content and high protein content. However, with a few adjustments, it can be formulated to be given to babies and can be extremely nutritious, aiding in neurological development. Many companies have taken the steps necessary to create their own baby formulas based on camel milk in a powder form, and some even buy fresh camel milk to make their own homemade formulas. 

3. Boost Immunity

In recent times, we all have cared about our health more than ever, especially when it comes to our immune system. Camel milk contains unique immune proteins, otherwise known as immunoglobulins, as well as, lactoferrin, antibodies, and the lysozyme protein. Immunoglobulins act as disease-fighters, while lysozyme proteins destroy bacteria present in the body. Lactoferrin in camel milk can help in activating and maturing various immunity cells. Combining all of these, camel milk has been shown to boost the immune system if regularly ingested.

4. Natural Moisturizer

Since ancient times, Egyptians among others, have been known to use camel milk for their skin’s health, with Cleopatra bathing in it to keep her skin youthful and glowing. The special composition of camel milk makes it ideal for the skin. The AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) present in camel milk help gently and naturally exfoliate dead skin cells and are suitable for sensitive skin. Vitamin C is abundant in camel’s milk and is a strong antioxidant, helping in stimulating collagen production, and reducing moisture loss in the skin. The lanolin in camel’s milk helps lock in moisture without clogging the pores, keeping the skin hydrated for longer. Camel milk has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps soothe even the most sensitive skin.
