Camel milk lactoferrin against bacterial infections

Prof. Dr. Taherah Mohammadabadi, an Iranian experienced scientist has done many experiments on camel milk quality and its properties. In the following paragraphs, she explained how camel milk lactoferrin as a nutraceutical supplement is against bacterial infections.

Lactoferrin is found in all types of milk (sheep, goat, cow, and buffalo) but camel milk containing the highest quantity. Lactoferrin strengthens the immune system by protecting cells against bacterial and viral infections and inflammation.

Its sceintifically proved that milk lactoferrin inhibits the growth of some pathogenic strains in humans and/or animals such as Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium, Shigella dysenteriae, Listeria monocytogenes, Streptococcus spp., Vibrio cholerae, Legionella pneumophila, Klebsiella pneumophila, Enterococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Bacillus stearothermophilus and Bacillus subtilis.

Due to the fact that camel milk has the highest amount of lactoferrin compared to other species, so it can be a valuable source of lactoferrin that can reduce bacterial growth, prevent bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation.

Thus, camel milk lactoferrin might be considered an antimicrobial therapeutic agent.

Regarding the increasing resistance to antibiotics, it is necessary to explore novel antimicrobial drugs to bacterial diseases.

Camel milk- A Natural Compound against the Liver Diseases

Prof. Dr. Taherah Mohammadabadi

Prof. Dr. Taherah Mohammadabadi from Iran as an experienced scientist has done many experiments on camel milk quality and its properties. She has written many articles on camel milk and health complications such as Hepatitis. In the following paragraphs, she explained how camel milk as an adjunct superfood is against complicated health issues, i.e. Hepatitis. There are some references already appreciating the role of camel milk in liver diseases. Some important references are additionally provided at the end of the article.

  • Lactoferrin is an amazing molecule and is found in a valuable quantity in camel milk. Lactoferrin is a primary drug against HCV infection and leads to complete inhibition of virus. The lactoferrin molecule of camel milk is unique and performs stronger than human and bovine milk lactoferrins
  • Camel milk immunoglobulins (IgG) can recognize peptides of the Hepatitis C virus in comparison with human IgG
  • Camel milk contains casein that ignites the process of natural apoptosis of HCV cells in the liver. Apoptosis is used during early development to eliminate unwanted cells http://It is used during early development to eliminate unwanted cells
  • Camel milk can enhance the cellular immune responses, inhibits the replication of the virus’s DNA, and recovers chronic hepatitis B patients in a certain period of time.

In the above paragraphs, a brief of the phenomenon was discussed. For details, you can click on the link



Camel Milk and the Food Allergies

Camel Milk is Allergy Free and Calming other Types of Food Allergies

The lacks of β−lactoglobulin and different β-casein allergic proteins, the camel milk is the best choice for the children who suffering from milk allergies. Camel milk IGs are same as human milk which improves allergic reactions to foods. This way it is good to calm other types of allergies in human especially children. In a study, the allergy affected children consumed camel milk for two weeks and in the first 24 hours they showed fewer symptoms of allergy and after four days all the symptoms disappeared. Camel milk rapidly improved children who were suffering severe food allergies.

Ways Forward

The findings available are very specific and attained from limited research. It needs further clinical and lab researches to confirm the effectiveness of camel milk in alleviating of food allergies. For further details, please go to the link below.

Camel milk and cardiovascular diseases

How camel milk as a superfood is effective on cardiovascular diseases?

Note: Camel milk is not a treatment

Special probiotic bacteria of camel milk Prevent reabsorption of Cholesterol

CaM interfere with cholesterol absorption from the intestine by de conjugating bile salts and preventing reabsorption of cholesterol

Hypocholesterolemic peptides of camel milk also affects the cholesterol absorption

CaM result in cholesterol reduction by binding to cholesterol or by reducing the micellar solubility of cholesterol and inhibiting cholesterol absorption

Fermented camel milk has inhibitory peptides of angiotensin I-converting enzyme that regulate blood pressure

Reduction of 1% in cholesterol reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases by 2–3%

Using of camel milk for 6 months, the reduced LDL and triacylglycerol’s in type 1 diabetic case

How camel milk is effective on digestion and gut disorders!

A higher amount of anti-inflammatory proteins like lactoferrin can improve stomach and intestine troubles. Antivirus and antibacterial proteins of camel milk can stop pathogens bacteria in the gut and cause improved digestion system function

The antimicrobial proteins of camel milk can decompose Helicobacter pylori bacteria in the stomach and prevent ulcers, inflammation, and digestive system failure. Lactic acid bacteria in camel milk and fermented camel milk that produce lactic acid and bacteriocins against pathogen bacteria and prevent digestive disorders.
