Donkey milk and it`s benefits by Johannes Visagie

Scientific analysis has revealed the amazing nutritional properties of donkey milk. It contains quite large amounts of the vitamins A, B1, B2, C and E and significant amounts of immunoglobulin, magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and sodium. 

Donkey milk releases specific amino acids into the body which are very important in naturally moisturizing the skin. The milk proteins from donkey milk nourish the skin and offer more than 40% of the skin’s necessary amino acids. These amino acids are very important for the maintenance of normal metabolic activity of cells, as part of the synthesis of collagen, elastin and keratin.

Dr Massimo Caliendo, Nutritional Biologist
From a nutritional standpoint, donkey’s milk can be classified both as an essential food and a nutritional supplement – which can be used for a broad spectrum of people in different situations and of all ages. 

Given its chemical-physical characteristics which make it similar to human breast milk, one of the most important uses of donkey’s milk is in paediatrics, specifically for cases of allergies and intolerance. It is well-known that the protein in cows’ milk can be an allergen for children. If mother’s milk is not available, donkey’s milk comes into its own as an extremely beneficial and important source of food, particularly for cases of multiple food allergies and poor absorption. 

Donkey’s milk is also a great supplement for practitioners of sports. It can improve work rate and performance. In difficult situations such as growth problems, poor diet, convalescence, periods of transition such as adolescence or the menopause or for older people, dietary supplementation based on donkey’s milk helps the body to cope during critical phases. Finally, adults in good health can enjoy donkey’s milk as a hypo-allergenic substitute for cows’ milk.
Its most significant nutritional characteristics are :

A serum protein content similar to breast milk with a casein content significantly lower than cows’ milk; this promotes improved digestion and assimilation, reducing the allergenic potential

A balanced relationship between the various essential fatty acids, with a predominance of those promoting anti-inflammatory and vascular protection effects; the easily digestible bio-available fat content makes donkey milk an optimum source of energy, particularly in demanding situations such as the practice of combat sports when it is essential to maintain a constant metabolic energy supply 

Enzymes and immuno-protective substances (lysine, lactoferrin, lactadherin) which boost the immune system and reduce the risk of intestinal infection 

An optimum Calcium/Phosphorous ratio for improved calcium assimilation, making donkey’s milk the ideal food for promoting growth, use of the muscles in sports and helping prevent post-menopausal and senile osteoporosis 

A high lactose content providing an immediately available fuel for growing bodies, young people, athletes; amongst other benefits, lactose facilitates intestinal absorption of calcium.
