The Health Benefits of Drinking Donkey Milk
According to the BBC World Service’s Health Check Programme, donkey milk is the ideal milk
substitute for children and adults suffering from Cow’s Milk Protein Allergies (CMPA). The Journal
of Food Science deemed donkey milk a ‘pharma-food’ for its nutritional, nutraceutical and functional
Donkey milk is naturally hypoallergenic and is tolerated by about 90% of infants who have food
allergies. It is also highly-palatable, with a delicious taste and no smell. This means that it is less
likely to be rejected by children with sensitive palates.
Compared to other types of animal milk, the donkey variety is actually closest to human breast milk,
based on its pH level and nutritional make-up.
IMPROVED OVERALL HEALTH:
Donkey milk is high in Omega 3 and 6 which are needed for a healthy heart, brain and for healing
gut tissues. It is also rich in the anti-bacterial enzyme, lysozyme, which aids in destroying harmful bacteria in the gut and prevents intestinal infections.
Donkey milk is high in vitamins (A, D and E), minerals (calcium and phosphorous) and all the essential amino acids needed to stimulate the metabolism, thereby lowering cholesterol and triglycerides in heart patients.
Donkey milk contains immunoglobulin-protein which acts as an anti-body and improves the immune system. The natural substances found in donkey milk have been shown to enhance immunity for people with conditions like asthma, eczema, or psoriasis.
According to the Journal of Current Pharmaceutical Design, it has been concluded that donkey milk
prevents artery hardening due to its ability to dilate human blood vessels.
FIGHTING AUTISM, CANCER & OTHER AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASES:
Donkey milk is high in the amino acid, glutathione, and in selenium - the mineral needed to make
glutathione. Glutathione is often low in autistic children, cancer patients and diabetics. This amino
acid helps to prevent free radical damage and is important in the detoxification of the liver.
Studies have shown that autistic children respond better, in most cases, to donkey milk than to any
other substitute to cow’s milk (including sheep, goat and camel milk). Many children often reach a
plateau while on other milk varieties and it is believed that donkey milk may be the next step in
moving these children forward.
The anti-proliferation and anti-tumour effects of donkey milk on A549 human lung cancer cells were
investigated in vitro, and its effects on cell cycle progression, apoptosis and cytokine production
were examined. The active components of donkey milk not only directly suppressed tumour
proliferation in vitro, but also indirectly killed tumours through activation of lymphocytes and
macrophages. The high content of lysozyme found in donkey milk may contribute to its anti-tumour
PANDAS (short for Paediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with
Streptococcal infections) is a physiological and psychiatric disorder which appears to be caused in
