When it comes to her diet—or really, her entire "healthy" lifestyle—Gwyneth Paltrow is no stranger to controversy. From cupping to conscious uncoupling, vagina steaming to jade eggs, she's definitely faced a lot of backlash. Her latest liquid cleanse isn't going to deter her haters, either.
An interview with Women's Health revealed that Paltrow recently went on a goat-milk-only cleanse for eight days straight. No crunchy veggie salads or detox granola bars. No coffee-free warming lattes. Not even bone broth.
Goat's milk contains less lactose than cow's milk, and may help your body better process iron, calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium, according to experts. It's also been reported to reduce inflammation, boost your immune system, and reduce blood pressure. Apparently, however, Paltrow went on her milk-only diet to fight parasites in her body.
"I'm really interested in the impact of heavy metals and parasites on our bodies," she said in the Women's Health interview. "I think they're two of the biggest culprits in terms of why we feel bad."
While she's been busy battling parasites, Paltrow has been hard at work on her next project—Goop Wellness, a new line of nutritional supplements. You can now plunk down $90 for a month's worth of vitamins tailored to your specific health concerns, whether you're always wondering "Why Am I So Effing Tired?" or you've got too many "Balls in the Air." The supplements were developed by doctors to to address the four main wellness problems that many women face.
There's no word yet on how the goat milk cleanse worked out, but we do know from Women's Health that she chased it with a hearty chicken sausage stew. Parasites, WGAF.
