Sure. Not everyone can access raw milk, and as long as you tolerate it, it's OK. It's a step better than conventional pasteurized milk. Drink up!

I tried one made by Jarrow. Didn't notice any positive or negative effects to be honest. I was using it to help with gut problems (bloating) and GERD that was linked to the gut problems. I didn't really see the effect of it myself.
