Goat milk is as close to a perfect food as possible. It is tolerated by even the most sensitive individuals. Its proteins and other nutrients are better absorbed and utilized while having an alkaline effect on the body. Our Wisconsin small-farm pastured goat whey comes together with a full cream goat milk powder to capture all the unique qualities of goat milk. Packed with easy to digest nutrients, goat whey may support glutathione production, bone density, energy levels, digestion, cardiovascular health, immunity, and muscle recovery.
Mostly all of the whey proteins on the market are heavily processed isolates. This means the alkaline forming minerals and immune factors naturally present in the whole milk have been removed. The body needs these minerals to metabolize the protein correctly and avoid acid buildup. Most whey protein is derived from cheese manufacturing as the whey is a byproduct in the process and they undergo varying types of excessive processing. These proteins may seem to provide results, however just how steroids provide results, they can cause long-term damage. These highly processed, cheese by-products of grain-fed factory farmed cow's milk are by no means a health food. With many reported benefits of people consuming fresh raw whey for centuries, it was by all means necessary to process the whey correctly in order to receive a health benefit.
Why Goat Whey Protein Concentrate?
Goat milk is very close to human milk. It is quite rare for someone to have allergies to goat milk. Even though our goat milk concentrate contains very little lactose, people with lactose allergies often handle the lactose in goat milk just fine. The protein and fat molecules in goat milk are much smaller then in cow's milk and therefore are less allergy forming and much easier to digest and assimilate. In particular, the fat molecules in goat milk are nine times smaller then cow's milk. In addition, goat milk is known to have anti-mucous qualities, alkaline post digestive effects, and many immune enhancing properties.
Goats are referred to as bioorganic sodium animals in Naturopathic Medicine. They are associated with vigor, flexibility, and vitality. Cows are calcium animals known for stability and heaviness. Bioorganic sodium is an important element for supporting joint health. Traditionally, goat’s milk has been used to nourish and rejuvenate an overtaxed nervous system. Goat’s milk is also extremely nutrient dense.
In fact, Gandhi himself rejuvenated his own health after fasting by drinking raw goat’s milk.
Importance of Raw Protein
The dry weight of the human body is 75% protein. Most people are deficient in many amino acids even though they consume huge amounts of “protein.” In addition, many people have insufficient amounts stomach acid and pepsin in the stomach, and lack proper intestinal flora and enzyme production to digest and absorb protein and other nutrients from even the most optimal foods. It is not hard to see the importance of obtaining a source for truly absorbable, biologically identifiable, low temperature, undenatured protein for maintaining optimal health. We believe low temperature grass-fed whey concentrate is one of the best sources of protein for the human body. We will explain why below.
Whey was one of the very first medicines every prescribed
Hippocrates, the father of medicine, recommended whey as a treatment for numerous disorders and diseases. Many practitioners throughout the ages used fresh w
