MilkMicrobes

Since we are now brainwashed to see packaging and standard factory finishing as quality measure, we also see naturally available food with same lens. I often receive complaint from my family and friends that Gau shala milk is not of same quality every day! It is not possible! You are underrating grand design principles of महाप्राण!

During pregnancy, grand-mother always prescribes some work until 7th month.

But our modern moms don’t like this advice. They love chatting on whatsapp. They love watching TV.

Results into?

More Weight gain than expected.

The heavier the mother, the fewer the bacteria in the breastfeeding.

The study also reveals that the milk of overweight mothers or those who put on more weight than recommended during pregnancy contains a lesser diversity of species.

Spanish researchers have traced the bacterial microbiota map in breast milk, which is often the main source of nourishment for newborns. The study has revealed a larger microbial diversity than originally thought: more than 700 species.

Breast milk is recognized as the most important postpartum element in metabolic and immunologic programming of health of neonates. The factors influencing the milk microbiome and the potential impact of microbes on infant health have not yet been uncovered.

Imagine the vaccum of good bacteria when the breast-fed is replaced by formula feeding?

Similar pro-life prana (bacteria) is present in Gau mata’s milk. But we pasteurize it! 🙁

Reason why lean and freely grazing cows give more nutritious milk than cows kept in curfew?

Games of MahaPrana!

Ghor KaliyugA! 🙁

The human milk microbiome changes over lactation and is shaped by maternal weight and mode of delivery

Background: Breast milk is recognized as the most important postpartum element in metabolic and immunologic programming of health of neonates. The factors influencing the milk microbiome and the potential impact of microbes on infant health have not yet been uncovered.

Objective: Our objective was to identify pre- and postnatal factors that can potentially influence the bacterial communities inhabiting human milk.

Design: We characterized the milk microbial community at 3 different time points by pyrosequencing and quantitative polymerase chain reaction in mothers (n = 18) who varied in BMI, weight gain, and mode of delivery.

Results: We found that the human milk microbiome changes over lactation. Weisella, LeuconostocStaphylococcusStreptococcus, and Lactococcus were predominant in colostrum samples, whereas in 1- and 6-mo milk samples the typical inhabitants of the oral cavity (eg, VeillonellaLeptotrichia, and Prevotella) increased significantly. Milk from obese mothers tended to contain a different and less diverse bacterial community compared with milk from normal-weight mothers. Milk samples from elective but not from nonelective mothers who underwent cesarean delivery contained a different bacterial community than did milk samples from individuals giving birth by vaginal delivery, suggesting that it is not the operation per se but rather the absence of physiological stress or hormonal signals that could influence the microbial transmission process to milk.

Conclusions: Our results indicate that milk bacteria are not contaminants and suggest that the milk microbiome is influenced by several factors that significantly skew its composition. Because bacteria present in breast milk are among the very first microbes entering the human body, our data emphasize the necessity to understand the biological role that the milk microbiome could potentially play for human health.

  1. is it necessary to heat raw milk at home after receiving it? not boiling but heating at normal temperature for few minutes? at a hostel when I order A2 raw milk I just heat it once with very low temperature but at our home, in Gujarat they heat milk for 5-10 mins (ઉભરો આવે ત્યા સુધી). so what is recommended process?
