PSYCHOLOGY - Equaid Research


The mare's milk may involve welfare and a better mood in the short term due to their contribution in free amino acids. This improvement consolidates medium and long term due to one of the proteins in the milk which is the α-lactalbumin. This, among others, is a source of essential amino acids such as tryptophan and tyrosine acting precursor of serotonin, a neurotransmitter which we know is very important to our well-being ( Uniacke-Lowe et al 2010, Csapó - . Kiss et al . 1995 ).

Serotonin is the neurotransmitter used by the neural pathways responsible for mood, appetite, sleep and sexual desire. With the addition to our body with essential amino acids needed to synthesize this neurotransmitter, these neural pathways as related to positive feelings have run option and better regulation. To regulate the synthesis and degradation of the dynamic equilibrium of serotonin neurotransmitters, thereby favoring the proper nerve function is regulated.

In addition, the mare's milk contains other components that favor this being described. It contains a lot of magnesium which is present in nerve transmission and provides energy to neurons as well as being a muscle relaxant.

Apart from improving mood , mare's milk gives us energy. This energy is derived mainly from lactose. Thus the energy provided by us derived from sugars and fats and not having a low amount of these. It is bringing a high amount of vitamins, minerals, polyunsaturated fatty acids ( omega 3 and omega 6) and essential amino acids ( both free as part of the protein). ( Csapó et al. 1995 Malacarne et al. 2002 , Haddad et al. 2011 ).

As a result, we have seen that mare's milk can help people with low mood, depression and problems such as stress and anxiety.
