Besides having three times more vitamin C than cow’s milk, camel milk is loaded with anti-diabetic properties, says Leila Smaily, clinical dietitian, Shamma Clinic. ‘According to researchers, camel milk contains 52 units of insulin per litre.’ Some studies have shown that camel milk helps reduce blood sugar and improves lipid profiles, she says. In most of the clinical trials, the recommended dose of camel milk was 500 ml/day, which led to the improvement of diabetes markers even after three months in patients with diabetes. The high amount of digestion resistant insulin and high level of antioxidants as anti-inflammatory factors are the possible explanation for the anti-diabetic effect of camel milk.
