The article discusses the importance of camel milk in the human diet. Camel milk differs from other ruminant milk in that it contains less cholesterol, less sugar, more minerals, more vitamin C, and more protective proteins such as lactoferrin, lactoperoxidase, immunoglobulins, and lysozyme. Camel meat is a delicacy that should not be overlooked during celebrations. When families move to new grazing sites within the range, male camels are also used to transport water and household items. Furthermore, camels play an important role in traditional social relations, such as dowry payment and compensation for injured parties in clan feuds. Cosmetics and autoimmune diseases Camel milk lacks -lactoglobulin and is used as an alternative for people who are lactose intolerant to cow’s milk.

Camel milk contains lactoferrin, which has the ability to inhibit cancer cell proliferation. Camel milk contains zinc and magnesium, which give it antiulcer properties. Camel milk contains a high concentration of -hydroxyl acids, which are known to moisturize the skin and are also used to treat skin disorders such as dermatitis, acne, and eczema. Although camel milk has such benefits, it is underappreciated, and its consumption is limited to pastoral areas. More research into the chemical composition and medicinal properties of camel milk is needed.
