While the prevalence of cow milk cheese, is not likely to fade in the near future, it is important to understand that there are other options out there. This is not meant to say that cow milk cheese is “bad” for you, but if you’re willing to put in a bit of extra effort to find goat cheese, you might be surprised at the beneficial effects you will experience.
The health benefits of this meal are attributed to its properties that strengthen bones, boost immunity, and much more.
Cheese of all varieties is rich in calcium, and this tart is no exception. In addition, it gives you a comparable amount of calcium as without many side effects, ensuring that the calcium deposits stay rich and stable while helping prevent osteoporosis.
One reason why people tend to love this appetizer is that they are able to enjoy it without the inflammation and upset stomach that other cheeses often causes. This is due to the unique enzymatic makeup of goat cheese that soothes inflammation in the gut. Research is ongoing to see whether these anti-inflammatory properties extend to other areas of the body, but one thing is for certain, it’s definitely good for your stomach.
One of the main benefits of this awesome appetizer is that the chemical composition is far closer to human milk than cow milk cheese . Human milk is similar to goat cheese so our bodies are able to get more nutrients out of the milk as it moves through our system and causes less stress on our digestive processes.
Goat cheese is far more nutrient-dense than cow cheese, which means that you don’t need as much of it to receive the same (or better) nutrient intake. A single cup provides nearly 40% of our daily calcium requirements, 20% of vitamin B intake, as well as significant amount of potassium and phosphorus. Furthermore, studies have shown that goat cheese can help increase the uptake of iron and copper in our digestive tract, which is essential for people who struggle with anemia and other deficiencies.
There are nearly twice as many beneficial fatty acids in goat cheese as can be found in other cheeses, which means that our cholesterol balance is safe if it is consumed. By balancing our essential fatty acids in the body, we can prevent atherosclerosis, stroke, heart attack, and other coronary complications. The high potassium levels in goat milk also help reduce blood pressure, as potassium is a vasodilator that relaxes blood vessels and relieves tension on the cardiovascular system.
