We had been looking for a supplier of raw unpasteurized milk and dairy products for some time and are delighted to have discovered The Fermoy Natural Cheese Co. (check them out on Facebook), who are now supplying us with raw milk and hopefully soon raw cheese, yoghurt and kefir. Anna Skrine who works with us as a naturopath and food intolerance tester is also an advocate of the benefits of raw milk and here’s Anna’s take on just why it’s so much more wholesome and beneficial than the pasteurized version:
Wonderful News – Live Raw Milk is now available in Only Natural!
Live Raw Milk is a wonderful food source, and delicious! It is how nature intended it to be, and is alive because the natural lactic acid bacteria are still in it; and it is they that help you both to digest the milk, and make it easy to assimilate (i.e. absorb) into the body and use the calcium in the milk. Live raw milk has natural probiotics, such as such as lactobacillus acidophilus. The fats in raw milk, which are in their natural form (and so again easy to use in the body), contain all the fat-soluble vitamins – Vitamin A, D, E and K. The milk fat also contains Omega 3, and CLA (Omega 6), which has anti-carcinogenic properties, and incidentally is often used in products used for slimmers. In fact, the fat is the most important part of the milk! Live raw milk also contains Vitamin C and B vitamins.
Digestion and elimination! Yes I’m on my soapbox again, effective digestion and effective elimination are the two cornerstones of good health and when they break down due to poor diet or lifestyle choices that’s when the whole gamut of diseases we think of as ‘modern’ illnesses (inflammation of skin, joints or digestive system) kick in and take their toll.
So it’s a new year, Christmas was a blast hopefully, but now it’s time to look forward, get into shape and feel good in 2016.
