Did you know that goats are anatomically and physiologically very similar to humans? In fact, some medical schools around the world use goats to train their students due to these similarities.
For example, at birth a goat weighs about 9 pounds (4 kg) and grows to be about 120-150 pounds (54-68 kg). Large goats grow to be 200 pounds (90 kg). Sound familiar?
In comparison, a cow is a very large animal that at birth is about 100 pounds (45 kg) and grows to 1200 pounds (544 kg) or more.
And like us, goats have one stomach, whereas cows have four.
Why is this important?
Milks from different mammals have different compositions, and our human bodies tolerate these compositions differently.
Given how vital protein is for the human body, the quality of the protein we consume, and our body's ablity to process it, is extremely important.
Most protein products on the market are made from cow milk. But it is nearly impossible for the human body to fully digest and assimilate protein from a cow to use for energy, muscle building and performance without stimulants being added to the protein.
Since goat and human digestive systems are so similar, we can process foods made from goat milk much more easily than milk from any other species.
Cow milk creates an inflammatory response in the human body. Many people are lactose intolerant, but typically goat milk is far better tolerated. Goat protein is well worth trying if you have experienced negative reactions to cow milk.
And once again, goat milk is naturally high in L-arginine and L-glutathione - important amino acids for biological process relating to health, wellbeing and performance.
