Compared to standard cow’s milk, goat’s milk contains up to six times the number of prebiotic oligosaccharides; this could provide your baby or toddler with digestive and immune benefits. Prebiotic oligosaccharides are non-digestible carbohydrates that remain in the digestive tract. Prebiotic oligosaccharides are not absorbed by the body. Instead, they fulfil important roles that can make the digestion process a lot easier.
Prebiotic oligosaccharides remain in the large intestine. There they absorb water, which is used to make the stool softer and easier to pass. Children experiencing digestive discomfort can benefit greatly from the benefits of prebiotic oligosaccharides, especially when you consider that Oli6 goat’s milk powder contains a lot more of these non-digestible carbohydrates than normal cow’s milk.
Having a good intake of prebiotic oligosaccharides is beneficial for the health of your baby in general as well. The presence of prebiotic oligosaccharides limits the number of pathogenic bacteria. Pathogenic bacteria are the bacteria responsible for infections, so the high levels of prebiotic oligosaccharides can have an anti-inflammatory effect.
Compared to many other infant formulas on the market, goat’s milk powder has one of the highest natural goat whey contents. Goat whey proteins provide several benefits to a milk infant formula, which is why many parents tend to choose an infant formula with high goat whey content.
We do need to mention that goat’s milk powder is not completely free of lactose, so it is not a suitable option for children who have a severe allergy to lactose.
Goat’s milk contains high levels of vitamin A and magnesium. Compared to cow’s milk, goat’s milk contains 46% more vitamin A and 33% more magnesium. The increased number of vitamins and minerals is without a doubt more beneficial for your child. To understand how these vitamins and minerals can impact the growth and development of your child, we need to look a little closer at the function of vitamin A and magnesium.
Vitamin A is the vitamin responsible for bone growth and the functioning of the immune system. It is also a vitamin that contributes to the development of vision and helps the skin to repel bacteria. In conclusion, vitamin A is a vitamin that not only fulfils important functions in the body, it also protects your child against viruses and infections.
The role of magnesium should not be underestimated either, because recent studies have brought more important benefits of magnesium to light. Magnesium has shown to increase energy levels, calm nerves, promote better sleep, help with digestion, relieve tummy aches, regulate the levels of calcium and potassium, contribute to the health of the heart and prevent osteoporosis later in life. The accumulation of these benefits proves again that magnesium intake must be good to promote the health and development of the child.
