Commercial farmers are beginning to offer a new line of products developed for folks shackled to repetitive pains such as arthritis, or those living with unpleasant epidermic issues like acne.
Skin care cream made from goat’s milk, many of them put together with zero artificial ingredients, have recently been discovered as a naturally effective way to combat chronic pains and an assortment of skin ailments.
It was years ago when a commercial farm manager Grace Lukens started experiencing plantar fasciitis, a rather terrible inflammation of her foot sole, which is common among workers that had to spend long hours standing upright. As her skin came into contact with goat milk, she quickly noticed a soothing sensation and the softening of the tissues. Lukens then personally developed a therapeutic cream from goat milk, which she distributed to others with comparable body conditions.
To this day, users of Lukens’ treatment cream continue to send in positive feedback for her product. Many witnessed an improvement of their joint aches and various skin problems, which the latter wasn’t expected by its inventor. Orders have come from nations including Ireland, Singapore, Japan and New Zealand. Meanwhile, Lukens have been telling all interested parties and detractors to rub her cream on “wherever it hurts”.
The explanation behind the medicinal capacity of goat milk merchandise is the chemical compound that they contain high levels of: MSM. Full name being methylsulfonymethane, the MSM is a type of biologically active sulfur easily located in the body’s connective tissue and in the antioxidant glutathione. The MSM is an important component to maintaining a good health, given that over one hundred and fifty chemical compounds in the body, including enzymes and antibodies, require the presence of MSM to function properly.
MSM is quite commonly found in nature, existing in a wide variety of meat, milk, nuts and green vegetables. Unfortunately, due to its sensitivity with water, they are usually lost during cooking, either through the steam or surrounding water. Inadequate sulfur levels is often detected in many individuals, but is frequently under-reported in the media. Understandably, it hasn’t been long since scientists started working on the relationship between joint inflammation and MSM.
Concentrated forms of MSM powder are available in the market. They are meant to be used as daily dietary supplements, and they all come with the disclaimer that long periods of consistent usage is required for apparent effects. And because of the digestive method used for powdered supplements, much of the MSM is easily lost in the stomach acid. This is in contrast to the cream form of MSM treatment, where the compound is rapidly absorbed by the skin and into the tissues.
At the moment, farm-based businesses are looking into the lucrative market of therapeutic goods. With goat-milk fortified products, they are killing two birds with one stone, catering to those in need of relief from chronic inflammation, and those suffering from noticeable skin problems. Aside from treatment creams, goat milk have also been refined into lip balm, liquid soap and even deodorant.
