Mares Milk. The topic that’s floating around the health industry at the moment. So, what is it? And, do you need to introduce it into your everyday life? This blog post will explain everything you need to know about this new and emerging health trend.
What is Mares Milk?
As a cow’s milk alternative, mares milk has been drawn from a female horse. It is secreted during lactation and originally created to feed newborn foals. Similar to breast milk, it has a host of benefits that ensure a baby horse grows up strong and healthy. And, for many of these reasons, it has become the new hot topic health alternative out there.
What are the main benefits of Mares Milk?
Horse milk is rich in a number of proteins, fatty acids and vitamins. It is an entirely organic product with potassium, iron, calcium and phosphorous derived naturally. Some of the main health benefits noted:
- Aid and soothe digestion
- Improve bone health
- Reduces blood pressure
- Alleviates chronic skin conditions including eczema
- Promotes the production of collagen
- Aids in the maintenance of bones, teeth, cartilage, tendons and skin

Although a lesser-known option, mares milk can be used for those with milk intolerances – whether caused by lactose or proteins. And, it has even been noted as suitable for baby’s as an alternative to breast milk.
