Sheep's Milk Has Benefits

Cows and goats are the most popular source of milk, but for health benefits, the stuff provided by sheep might just have the edge. And if you feel a bit, well, sheepish about ewes' juice, let the folks at Naturemade Sheep Milk argue the case.

Sheep's milk, the firm reports, tastes a lot like cow's milk, and some critics say it beats some cow's milk substitutes hands, or udders, down. It can be a "delightful accompaniment" for coffee, tea, corn flakes and the like.

Nutritionists say the vitamin and mineral content of sheep's milk is superior to that of other commercially available milk, and that a single pint contains the recommended daily allowance of calcium and vitamins B2 and B12. The the 45 percent mono or polyunsaturated fats it contains are beneficial to the circulatory system.

Research has shown sheep's milk to be beneficial in the treatment of a range of ailments from asthma to eczema. And perhaps more importantly at certain times at certain occasions, ewes' milk supposedly has powers to soothe the raging hangover.
