Camel Milk Lactoferrin! A Useful Tool Against the Infections

What is Lactoferrin?

Lactoferrin is one glycoprotein detected in livestock milk; as camel milk containing the highest amount in comparison to other livestock species. Lactoferrin boosts the immune system by protecting the cells against bacterial and viral infections and inflammations.

What does the Lactoferrin do?

The lactoferrin of mammalian species have been proved to inhibit the growth of some pathogenic strains in human and/or animal 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

Lactoferrin helps in Keeping Healthy Gut Microbiome

Oral administration of lactoferrin reduces bacterial infections of the gastrointestinal tract and promoting the proliferation and growth of bacteria with low iron requirements such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria as beneficial strains for the host.http://camel4all.info/index.php/2020/02/19/researching-camel-milk-as-an-antiviral-agent-in-the-context-of-covid-19/

Explore the Novel Antimicrobial Molecule ‘LACTOFERRIN’

Lactoferrin can reduce bacterial growth, inhibit bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation; thus, it might be considered an antimicrobial therapeutic agent.  Regarding the increasing resistance to antibiotics, it is necessary to explore novel antimicrobial drugs for bacterial diseases. http://camel4all.info/index.php/2014/12/12/super-food-camel-milk-can-beat-the-challenge-of-super-bug-bacterial-resistance-to-antibiotics/

Camel Pastoralists Beleive in the Camel Milk Magic

Modern science and medical research also proved the importance of camel milk in human health. Famous US physician Dr. Hinkle has been very pleased with the results she is seeing with hepatitis on the camel milk. She has witnessed case after case of hepatitis patients whose liver enzymes have been normal for the first time in years while on the camel milk.

Alla et al (2011)1 conducted research on camel milk in connection with the liver enzymes of hepatitis patient. They concluded that camel milk can be used as an herbal remedy for the treatment of alcoholism and other liver diseases which affect the hepatic enzymes as well as the liver tissues. Yagil (2004)2 stated that camel milk is very effective in fighting viruses. Viruses can also be neutralized by blocking out their enzyme activity, and studies have shown that camel antibody is an effective inhibitor of hepatitis enzymes system. Other studies conducted by Middle Eastern Scientists on the role of camel milk, revealed that camel lactoferrin was demonstrated a remarked in-vitro ability to completely inhibit the Hepatitis C Virus (HCP) entry into PBMC, hepG2, and replication inside those cells system (Esmail,2008). Such changes help in safeguarding the body from this killer virus.

The desire for Camel Milk

The CM is a silver lining in the clouds for those who face liver dis-functioning. The scientific support for CMs’ potential is an additional asset which helps in convincing people with urban and academic backgrounds and asks for scientific proves. It is now pretty sure that CM turns the complexity into simplicity and makes the life easy and joyful. I hereby suggest those who have liver ailments and other complications to using camel milk for better health and a happy life.
