According to health24.com news, the oldest woman in the world, who died recently, had a secret 'ingredient' which helped her lead such a long and beautiful life. Maria Esther de Capovilla from Ecuador died at 116 years of age and appears to have owed much of her longevity to donkey milk. Even if it has not been scientifically proved yet, it seems that regular consume of donkey milk and dairy may provide a healthy life and long life span.
Nutritionists describe donkey milk as having a lower content of fat than cow milk and as being the closest to human milk; therefore, it is richer in vitamins, proteins and many other nutritious minerals and compounds.
According to Olivier Denys from Belgium's only donkey milk farm, the Asinerie du Pays des Collines at the Château des Mottes, "donkey milk is very good for your health, for the digestion and intestine, but we hadn't heard that it extended lifetimes."
It may be that the high content of nutritious compounds found in donkey milk makes it so healthy and provides it with life prolonging properties. Nutritionists inform that donkey milk is 60 times richer in vitamin C than cow milk, being also overloaded with vitamins A, D and E, calcium and phosphorus.
A previous report published by Elisabetta Salimei from the Università degli Studi del Molise, Italy in the Animal Research journal found that this particular type of milk is also an abundant source of proteins.
Another article praising the 'virtues' of donkey milk lasts since November 1999 and was published in the Indian Journal of Medical Sciences. According to a study carried out by Indian scientists, donkey milk can be the key to treating AIDS and TB, as it contains immunoglobulins. Immunoglobulins are proteins which make human immune system stronger and help us fight against a wide range of diseases. The report was entitled "AIDS cure from donkey's milk? 'Immuno-stimulants in milk could provide cure for cancer, TB also.'"
