Do the enzymes in raw milk and eggs fight parasites?
How the enzymes in raw milk and eggs fight parasites can be seen in some credible study’s
We can see in one study that in raw Bovine milk there is a much higher concentration of the enzyme Lactoferrin than in more common and supported homogenized milk. There has been a battle agains raw milk for quite a long time as well as governing well funded body’s doing their best to make life hard for small dairy farmers. We can see in the diagram below that Lactoferrin acts to sequester or protect the Zinc in our body by binding or chelating to it which inhibits parasitic growth. Zinc is one of the vital nutrients parasites, bacteria, virus’s and fungi need to survive and steal from their host’s:
In another study we can see that the enzyme Lysozyme in milk and egg whites of hens and geese also inhibit parasites, bacteria, virus’s and fungi. Lysozome acts as a catalyst to deteriorate bacterial cell walls. “Lysozyme acts mostly on Gram-positive bacteria and a few Gram-negative bacteria. Gram-positive bacteria are more susceptible to the action of lysozyme because their cell wall contains up to 90% peptidoglycan, whereas Gram-negative bacteria are more resistant because of the smaller amount of peptidoglycan in their cell wall. Heat denaturation, slight modification with hydrophobic ligands, or high-pressure homogenization can increase the activity of lysozyme against Gram-negative bacteria. Lysozyme has been shown to be effective against Gram-positive bacteria such as Micrococcus, Sarcina, Lactobacillus, and Bacillus and Gram-negative bacteria such as Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Aeromonas, Escherichia coli, Clostridium botulinum, and Listeria monocytogenes. Lysozyme also inhibits viruses, parasites, and fungi.”

We hope these study’s and images helped shed some light on how the enzymes in raw milk and eggs fight parasites, bacteria, virus’s and fungi.
