AceShowbiz - While most people usually drink medicine or herbal remedies to help cure illness, Tamera Mowry apparently has a different way to get better, and it's not something that anyone can think of. Turning to her twin sister Tia Mowry for help, "The Real" host was offered some of her sister's breast milk after learning that it has healing properties.
Tamera actually really enjoyed the milk and even raved about it in an Instagram video that the sisters shared. "Oh my gosh, Tia. This is amazing," she gushed in the clip while slurping it down. "Your breast milk is the best milk I've ever tried in my life, oh my God." In the caption, the wife of Adam Housley admitted that she indeed felt better after drinking the milk.
Posting the same video on her Instagram account, Tia wrote, "Soooo, my sister is desperate for some healing. She's sicky poo and I sent her an article on how breast milk has healing properties and was okay with drinking my #breastmilk. Ps, she's had some before and I mean, she's my twin. Here's what she had to say."
Even though Tamera admitted that she felt better thanks to the milk, many experts have advised against adults drinking breast milk as it poses a major risk to people's health. The American Pregnancy Association says that breast milk contains the "perfect combination of proteins, fats, vitamins and carbohydrates" which is essential for the development of newborn. Adults, however, break down those nutritional aspects differently than babies.
It's also revealed that human breasts milk contain dangerous impurities if the milk is not properly sanitized. Elisa Zied, a registered dietitian nutritionist in New York, said, "Human breast milk [is] designed to nourish babies -- not grown [adults]. Bottom line: I find the idea of an adult using human breast milk for health benefits unsubstantiated by science."
