“Vitamin C in camel milk has antioxidant and tissue repair protection activities. Vitamin C is an essential water soluble vitamin that helps protect the immune system. According to Natural Standard Research, Vitamin C is necessary in the body for the production of collagen, a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and gives skin its firmness and strength. Collagen is found in the skin, joints and cartilage; by increasing the production of collagen. Vitamin C strengthens the structural support and resiliency of skin so helps repair it. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage which causes skin dryness, and wrinkles (Escott-Stump, 2008) Vitamin C can literally reverse skin aging.
“Camel milk has no allergens but of extreme importance, it contains a large number of “protective proteins” (Kappeler, 1998), including very small and potent nano body-sized immunoglobulins (Muyldermans, 2001), tenth the size of human ones, allowing the penetration of thick tissue e.g. intestines and skin. The protective proteins have powerful antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Some “protective proteins” are responsible for tissue repair.”
