Adults actually drink breast milk? Isn't that only for infants?

Adults can also benefit from drinking breast milk. While it is not a common practice, some people do consume breast milk as a source of nutrients or for health reasons. Here are some potential benefits:

  1. Provides essential nutrients such as protein, fat, and carbohydrates that are easily digested by the body.
  2. Contains antibodies that can help boost immunity and fight off infections.
  3. May have anti-aging properties due to the presence of certain growth factors.
  4. Some people report an overall sense of well-being after consuming breast milk.

However, it is important to note that drinking breast milk should not be seen as a replacement for a balanced diet or medical advice. If you are considering consuming breast milk, please consult with your healthcare provider first.


Here's an excerpt from a BountifulFruits.com article:

Quote-left.png I have found that many people think of breast milk as "gross". I can't understand how nutrient-enriched milk from a woman's breasts can be viewed as nastier than a jug of homogenized milk pumped from a cow's rubbery udders. It's laughable, really, that someone can easily enjoy a farm animal's milk, but wince at the mere thought of sampling a woman's milk. This may stem from the fact that breasts have become sexually objectified; people don't seem to remember that breasts, although lovely to look at, have always been intended to sustain human life.
