Early research in 1889 by Sharmanov T.S.H. in the Ural Mountains had proven that the consumption of mares’s milk can be beneficial to the human body. The research however had not been taken seriously by western medical practitioners as it had been considered to come from The Iron Curtain country. The therapy is called Koumisstherapy, where the processed mares’ milk is prescribed to patients for treatment of peptic ulcer, tuberculosis and chronic hepatitis. In the 1960’s Koumisstherapy had been expanded to various major cities in Russia, including Moscow, Leningrad, Volinsk and 20 other hospitals in major Russian cities.
Further research was carried out by Italians, French and American ( Cornell University of United States) had carried similar research with positive results.
Research and development that was carried out on mares milk had proven that it’s composition is closer to mother’s milk compared to other animals. (Kalaila et. al 1951).
There are a few unique features of the mares’ milk which can be linked for human unique for of fat, carbohydrates and proteins. (Dolaroli et. al 1995).
