Goat milk is the best for babies and toddlers. Suddenly there are no more earaches, bellyaches, you put them down and bang - down for the night. It's a mom and dad sanity saver.

*Breastmilk is the best for babies and toddlers.

I've heard goat milk is better than formula and if I could not breastfeed, I would go that route. But most women can breastfeed and should choose to do that first and foremost. The benefits are unmatched.

Hmm, I'm surrounded by goat farmers...

Infants need iron. There is too much calcium and little to no iron in animal milk.

Goat milk is good for allowing your body to absorb and use iron and can help your body more effectively produce vitamin D (another important vitamin that is added to processed foods to fortify them).

Goat milk is high in Vitamin D (good). The lactose in goat milk is also more easily digested and absorbed than cow milk. In goat milk (as compared to cow milk), there is less interaction between calcium and iron. These factors may explain why calcium is more bioavailable when it comes from goat milk than when it comes from cow milk.

Research has concluded that goat milk is recommended for people who suffer from iron deficiency (caused by problems with their diet) because it can relieve or even possibly reverse the negative effects of iron deficiency on the human body.

The calcium blocks iron absorption, so how do you figure?

This is the same reason doctors recommend children do not get over X amount of oz of milk a day...because it leads to...anemia.

Calcium may actually inhibit the body’s ability to transport iron into cells, but this only occurs under specific conditions and to a pretty minimal extent. A sizable portion of studies focusing on the calcium-iron conundrum don’t dive into the specific mechanisms involved.

I am not surprised by "so called scientist do not do their homework". It is what happens when you go to prove a theory and stop when you get the answer you were looking for.

So we learned in studies that looked at specific mechanisms and found calcium didn’t affect the amount of iron that entered the cells, but it did temporarily affect the cells’ ability to export the iron into (what would be) human circulation. Instead of looking at just a 1.5 window we find at the four-hour mark, however, FPN levels had recovered. So the calcium conundrum comes down to time. Considering most other studies using larger windows of time found that there is no effect of calcium on iron absorption

Specially goat milk has a better parathyroid balance that regulates calcium balance. The reason is goats milk has a higher bioavailability iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Regular diet of goats milk aides mineral metabolism and shortens the window for FPN levels to recover . The iron and calcium components of goat’s milk have been found to be easier to absorb than those of cow’s milk.

Why the 3 down votes?

I also fed my kids goat's milk. 40 years ago. The youngest probably would have died without it, or been horribly miserable without it. They are both very healthy men today, thank you.
