Sheeps Milk Health Benefits
For Connoisseurs of Healthy Living
Our sheep’s milk is the perfect alternative for many people who are allergic to cow’s or goat’s milk, providing the much needed calcium for strong bones and essential vitamins for a healthy lifestyle. Being naturally homogenised, it’s easier to digest than other milks, and is higher in protein, calcium phosphorous, zinc, folic acid, and vitamins, than cow’s milk and goat’s milk.
Our sheep’s milk contains a high level of calcium compared to other milks. This, combined with other vitamins and lactose helps with bone density which is very important in adolescence and vital in the fight against Osteoporosis. The lacto-calcium in our sheep’s milk is much easier to absorb than calcium carbonate. Calcium itself is very important in the recovery from debilitating illnesses. Perhaps most importantly, the calcium to phosphorus ratio in our sheep’s milk is as near to perfect as possible. Meaning your body will absorb a higher amount of calcium than when other milks are consumed.
An essential player in your immune system, wound healing, development in pregnancy, childhood and adolescence.
At first glance you could be put off by the higher levels of fats in sheep’s milk, but you need to understand these fats first. Fats are made up of three fat soluble vitamins, which without you could be very ill. Theses vitamins (A, D and E) are considerably higher in sheep’s milk compared to other milks. Sheep’s milk also contains medium / short chain saturated fatty acids (MCT) and it is believed that this leads to a higher lactose absorption rate which benefits mildly lactose intolerant people. MCT also limits and / or inhibits cholesterol deposits. Sheep’s milk is also not as high in saturated fatty acids as in other milks. For those that are worried about the fat content, we do sell a semi skimmed version of our delicious milk.
