Cyprus woman who has made a fortune by selling her breastmilk to bodybuilders
This Cyprus woman, who's a mother of two, sells her breastmilk to bodybuilders and health savvy people for €1 per ounce.

Due to huge demand, 24-year-old Rafaela Lamprou has been making thousands of Euros by selling her breast milk. It all started when she began running out of space to store excess milk that she was producing after her second delivery.

Initially, she donated the extra milk to mothers in need, who struggled to feed their newborns, but she was soon approached by fitness freaks and bodybuilders, so she decided to sell her milk to make some extra cash.

A hotel worker by profession, Lamprou gave birth to her second child, Anjelo, seven months ago, after which she started producing around 2 litres of milk every day.

The Independent quoted Lamprou as saying, "I then started getting enquiries from men. It started with men who were interested in bodybuilding. They say it is good for building muscle mass. But then I started to get enquiries from men with fetishes."

Although there is no available research which suggests that human breastmilk helps in building muscles, many bodybuilders maintain a holistic approach towards breastmilk, believing that it contains growth hormones which aid muscle mass.

Charging €1(approx. Rs 80) for an ounce of her milk, Lamprou has so far sold 500 litres of breastmilk making €5,000 (approx. Rs 4 lakh).

Lamprou's husband Alex is quite supportive of her new business. Although she isn't sure for how long she would be able to continue with it, but Lamprou admits that it is quite "addictive".
