Benefits of Fermented Goat’s Milk
Although fermented milk and dairy foods have been consumed for thousands of years, we’ve only recently begun to understand their benefits in helping fight modern chronic illnesses such as arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, gastric ulcers, colitis and others. The natural fermentation process enhances the nutritional value of raw food. Some of the benefits of including fermented raw goat’s milk in your pet’s diet include:
- Probiotics found in fermented goat’s milk regulate bacteria and can help create a healthy gut – this leads to numerous health benefits.
- Enzymes found in fermented goat’s milk contribute to easy digestion helping your pet absorb all the vitamins and minerals. And since it is in liquid form, absorption happens more quickly than with pills or powders.
