In the olden times, every Hindu family had a cow shelter and a cow that fed the family with her nutritious milk. Our forefathers and the ancient scriptures have passed on to us the importance of the cow’s milk, which Ayurveda describes as sweet, cooling and of high nutritious value to our vital organs. Going beyond just its calorific value, our scriptures lauded cow milk for its mind calming properties, its improvement of “Sat Guna” and the positive energy it infuses in humans. Here are some of the benefits of drinking the Desi cow’s milk.
Most of the exotic breeds of Western cattle are said to have descended from a wild breed called URUS, that the Germans called the Aurochs. These were cross bred with other breeds and Indian Desi cows, and were then called Holstein, Jersey and F.S. Cows. These are excellent for their quantity and quality of meat, which too is becoming dangerous now due to bone meal and waste Feed given to them. However, these animals’ milk is not consumed, for its poisonous ingredient, Casomorphine, leading to mad cow disease.
The Indian cow’s milk has a high nutritional value and holds a lofty position among the milk that have health and curative strength against several diseases. These are some of the basic reasons that advise adoption of A2 milk at all times.
