Camel Milk Revitalize and Enriched our Gut Microbiom

Why Gut?

The gut is not only a processing and storing unit of food but the microbiome in the gut synthesize our immune system. Our gut health is more important than ever before because of many reasons, the immune system is one of the prime importance as a strong & healthy immune system is now more critical because of diverse forms of infections around us. The situation is very challenging, all manmade which led to the present time calamatis of the climate change. http://camel4all.info/index.php/2020/09/08/our-food-and-gut-synthesize-our-immune-system/

So need a very strong and responsive immune system to safeguard our health from such infections. There are many good and local foods that can enriched our gut microbiome and one of the top important food is the camel milk. As, I’m working on the investigation and documentation of the camel milk properties in human health since a long time, I hereby share some very basic facts that can tell how the CaM is helping us in keeping our health intact.

Camel milk can be effective on Gut issues and digestion due to some reasons such as;

  1. Came milk containing a reasonable quantity of anti-inflammatory proteins like lactoferrin which protect our gut from the infectious microrganisms.
  2. Some molecules in camel milk as as antiviral and antibacterial (Lactoferrin, igG, lactoperoxidase, and Lysozyme etc.). Such unique proteins of camel milk inhibit pathogenic microbes, which ultimately enhance the digestibility and provide a healthier ecosystem to the gut microbiome.
  3. The antimicrobial proteins of camel milk can decompose helicobacter pylori bacteria in the stomach. This bacterium is one of the main cause of stomach ulcers.
  4. The camel milk is rich with the lactobacilus bacteria, especially in fermented products of the camel milk. Lactobacilus bacteria produces lactic acid and some molecules like bactriocins against pathogen bacteria, providing a very healthy ecosystem to our gut.
  5. The milk with such properties are the food of choice for the autistic kids to keep the digestive system calm and help in digestion of the milk product.

I mentioned the very important and relevent charecteristics of camel milk which provide a healthier option for our gut health. The detais will be provided and a comprehensive article later. Take this piece of work as a ‘FOOD OFTHOUGHT”

The soil health makes your gut health and the gut health engineers your whole health and happiness.

Soil contamination can wreak havoc with human health. There is growing fear in many parts of the Malwa region in Punjab that the presence of heavy metals in the subsoil has led to autism, mental retardation and learning disabilities among children. A study conducted by Baba Farid Centre for Special Children (BFCSC) along with the National Research Centre on Camel (NRCC), Bikaner, shows that autism can be treated. Of the various treatments suggested, camel milk is also being recommended in treating autistic children.IMG_5536[1]

Children who were given camel milk have reported better sleep, increased motor-planning abilities and spatial awareness, more eye contact, better language, and less gastrointestinal problems. This has fed demand for camel milk, especially in the Malwa region. At present, the NRCC is providing camel milk at the BFCSC, Faridkot, for autistic children. For research works, it is supplying the milk at Faridkot, Bathinda, and Ambala. The price of camel milk depends on quantity and transport. Dr. Pritpal Singh, who is working for autistic children at the Faridkot center, hopes that camel milk will prove beneficial for such children. Many doctors claimed that autism is neither a mind nor a genetic disorder. It is a biochemical disorder involving the whole body. “Lower immunity with repeated bacterial and fungal infections, multiple allergies, autoimmunity, and leaky gut with diarrhea or constipation are universal. Camel milk, in these cases, works like a magic potion,” said Dr. Amar Singh Azad, chief consultant at Baba Farid Centre. The BFCSC has taken up a research project in collaboration with the NRCC. Dr. Amar Singh Azad, Baba Farid Centre, Dr. NV Patil, director and Dr. Raghvendar Singh, principal scientist, NRCC, are supervising the project.images

Under the project, autistic children of the Baba Farid center were given 500ml of camel milk along with other treatment. The raw camel milk was brought from the camel research farm in Bikaner in a cold chain and distributed to four BFCSC centers — Faridkot, Bathinda, Ambala, and Patiala. The results which are evaluated with the help Autism Evaluation Checklist (ATEC SCORE) have been positive. ATEC SCORE, a scientific tool, is used to measure improvements among the children consuming camel milk. This score has 77 items with 180 marks which are auto-analyzed by software, which is operated by Autism Research Institute. Nearly, 41 children of Baba Farid Centre were analyzed with this score and it was found out that on an average, there was an improvement of 26 points. In 27 children, the improvement was 25 points; in 11, it was 26 to 50 points while in three, the improvement was more than 50 points. There was no child who showed no improvement.Dr. Azad said, “The first phase of the research is over. In the next phase, we will take 30 children who are consuming camel milk but are not taking other treatment and another 30 children who are drinking camel milk with other treatment. This will help to establish the exact role of camel milk in managing autistic children.”

He said research in other countries had also revealed that camel milk was effective in tackling autism as a study in Saudi Arabia had proved that autism symptoms improved with camel milk.Dr. Raghvendar, head, ICAR-CSWRI, Avikanagar, says studies published in the International Journal of Human Development showed that the consumption of camel milk improves immunity among autistic children.
