Goat milk – On the throne of Keto dairy
Goat milk products might be the healthiest dairy available to humans today. In fact, goat milk is one of the healthiest foods and it’s quite a keto friendly thing. Its composition has the most similarity to mother’s milk. Obviously, ancient people knew about it’s healing properties. They consumed it to strengthen immunity, treat the lungs and tuberculosis. Goat milk is a perfect ally in the fight against stress, bronchitis, and allergies. Also, it reduces the risk of lung cancer and can be taken by diabetics!
The powerful vitamin content
Goat milk contains vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12 important for strengthening the nervous system. This milk has 47% more vitamin A than cow’s milk. Potassium content is 134% higher, while copper is 4 times higher in concentration. It also features calcium and phosphorous, minerals that are important for bone strength. It’s rich in zinc and selenium, powerful antioxidants essential to maintaining immunity. This is extremely beneficial for people with thyroid problems.
Science loves it
Based on the results of the research, scientists recommend goat milk products for various health benefits. They claim that goat milk encourages the better utilization of iron and the regeneration of haemoglobin. This is highly important for people suffering from anaemia and diabetes.
Fighting cancer with goat milk
Extremely beneficial linoleic acid can be found in goat milk. This acid does not exist in cow’s milk. A study confirms that linoleic acid creates anti-cancerogenic effects. We can conclude that goat milk protects our body from cancerogenic diseases.
My therapeutic Keto meal-plan based on goat milk
The essential fatty acids of goat milk are highly concentrated in my new therapeutic ketogenic diet program. If you are interested, don’t hesitate to contact me for a therapeutic meal-plan based on goat milk!
Goats prefer to eat healthily
Since goats are eating tree bark, their milk is rich in silica and minerals, which has a beneficial effect on the quality of skin, hair, nails and nervous system. Goat milk is abundant in oligosaccharides that act against inflammation and at the same time regulate the defective function of the intestines.
Due to the lack of lactose or milk sugar, which cow’s milk contains in far larger quantities, goat milk is Keto-friendly. In adults, goat milk can help prevent high blood pressure and atherosclerosis. In fact, potassium is an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.
Buttermilk, goat cheese and yoghurt
Here in Greece, it’s quite easy to find all sorts of goat dairy products. I will devote a whole article to goat butter which I consider as a divine product that every Ketonian has to have in their fridge. I believe you can order it online. Many countries are increasing the production of goat milk these days. Search for the local farms – this would be the best solution.
The healing properties
Goat milk products are also powerful natural remedies. They enhance the growth and development of the digestive tract. I would like to point out that they are recommended for the prevention and therapy of liver disease. They can aid fatty liver, cirrhosis, and mononucleosis. These extremely tasty products are great for osteoporosis, blood pressure, inflammatory processes, kidney function…
Great protein ratio
Goat milk proteins are known as fast proteins because we can absorb them quickly. This way we can directly supply our muscle cells with energy and necessary amino acids. It is recommended for athletes and active people to provide rapid muscle recovery after training. Furthermore, it’s an outstanding source of protein for pregnant women.
Don’t think twice, switch to goat milk products
Goat milk contains complete proteins and provides all the amino acids necessary for good health. This milk is naturally rich in essential amino acid tryptophan, which is a natural sedative. As such, it stimulates the release of serotonin, the most famous neurotransmitter to create a sense of relaxation and contentedness. Interestingly, it can reduce appetite and clean dental deposits preventing caries. Moreover, it helps to regenerate the liver. Do you need more reasons?!
Love this article! I was drinking goat”s milk some years ago and now going back to a better healthier lifestyle (I’m a Sr now! Lol!☺️) and trying Keto. This article has won me back over to goats milk with a better understanding of the health benefits of this supper food! Thanks so much for a little more knowledge.
Thank you so much for this positive comment. We hope goat milk will bring you many benefits as it did to us!

Hello Tamar, thank you for your kind words. If you would like to work with Apollonas on a specific personalised meal plan with goat dairy, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I found your page researching online. I have access to fresh goat milk and it is delicious. But almost every page except yours says it is not Keto friendly? They all say it’s too high in carbs. I would like more info on this from you if possible. Thanks.
organic, full-fat goat milk has 4g carbs per 100ml and at the same time offers a great profile of different micronutrients. You can easily fit this in your ketogenic lifestyle if you will not consume large quantities. However, we are promoting the consumption of fermented products, such as goat yoghurt, goat cheese (feta for example has 0 carbs) and above all goat butter. The health benefits from goat and sheep dairy are numerous and purely counting carbs is not something that will give us benefit. We should be smart and learn from our ancestors. If you would like more info, maybe a 45 minutes consultation via video or audio call with Apollonas would be a great idea! 🙂
