Milk – it does NOT do a body good.
EXCEPT, that is, if it’s from A2 cows.
You see, most dairy products found in US grocery stores come from breeds of cows, such as Holstein, which have a highly inflammatory type of milk protein called A1 casein.
But thanks to my guests – some of the only A2 dairy farmers in the US – healthier dairy IS available.
Husband-wife duo, Stephanie and Blake Alexandre, plus their five kids, are truly pioneers in the A2 dairy industry and in farming as the first certified regenerative dairy farm.
On this episode The Alexandres share their incredible story of running a family farm and what YOU can do to help facilitate regenerative agriculture in your community.
We also discuss why consuming organic isn’t enough, how farming like our grandparents will help heal the planet, and why A2 dairy products are optimal if you’re going to drink milk.
