Camel milk contains unique bioactive molecules that make it a natural pharmacy

Camel milk (CaM) highlights at the eve of World Camel Day 2019

I have been writing about camel milk, which we call CaM. The CaM is important because of many reasons, like an environmental footprint, composition, biological activities and minerals, and Vitamin contents. As we are celebrating world camel day on 22nd June 2019 is the year of CaM, meaning camel milk.

This article is about the milk composition and the biological activities of the CaM. I shall just copy and paste the conclusion of the scientific article and will also provide the link to it. You can read it in detail in the link.

Camel milk is a natural pharmacy

Camel milk is known for its nutritional quality, being rich in vitamins C and A and low in SFA, its smaller fat globules, and being easy to digest and rich in many minerals and bioactive compounds. The medicinal virtues of camel milk and its association with a decreased prevalence of diabetes type I and II have attracted many studies, but more research is needed to dissect the mechanism of action of the insulin-like small molecules, which may be responsible for the anti-diabetic properties present in camel milk. Further studies are also required to examine the role of camel milk in treating several diseases such as gastrointestinal ulcers, liver disorders, and dermatological autoimmune diseases. In addition to that, camel milk has been proven as a highly important source of natural bioactive compounds and antimicrobial substances that could be targeted to develop functional and health-promoting products for the well-being of the human population in the coming years.
