Throughout history, breast milk has always had a special – albeit weird – place with our ancestors. From centuries ago with Egyptians, to the 1960s with Albert Sabin, many have sung the praises of breast milk. But what are those benefits? And do they actually work?
Many say breast milk increases skin elasticity and hydrates it like no cream can!
Apparently, not only do babies benefit from drinking it, as it’s jam-packed with nutrients. Try mixing 1 cup breast milk, 8 oz. frozen strawberries, 3 oz. orange juice, 1 cup frozen banana, and 1 cup pineapples and blend. You first…
According to the University of California, it contains lauric acid that acts as a simple, cheap acne or rosacea treatment!
It’s sterile. It has moisturizing properties. And apparently, it doubles as a contact lens solution!
Start using it instead of cow’s milk. Yes. We’re serious. Studies have linked it with killing over 40 different types of cancer cells!
Breast milk is loaded with different antibodies which make it a great soothing agent against burns. It helps stop the pain and heal the skin quickly!
Ear infections are so common with babies, and they could be quite painful, too! A few drops of breast milk administered at the entrance of the ear canal – not into it – can relieve the pain for several hours due to the antibodies.
