Did you know that milk is just filtered blood that female mammals create to provide vital nutrients to their babies? And yes, that even includes cow milk, the one we all buy at the grocery store. The cocktail is composed of water, sugar, fat, and protein, that are extracted from the mom’s blood by her mammary glands.

In essence, the bloodstream serves as the conduit for all nutrients that nourish and sustain an animal’s body, making virtually everything within it a product of filtered blood, including milk!
