Any breastfeeding mom knows how important it is to pump enough milk for her growing baby. Some would even go as far as calling it “liquid gold.”

So, when breastfeeding mom and blogger Amy Oyler, who goes by the Reddit username phnx0221, decided to put her own breast milk under an American Optical laboratory microscope, she knew she would see something incredible.

The result? Even more magical than she ever imagined:

Under the microscope, the breast milk actually looks exactly like pure liquid gold. Oyler didn’t use any special filters or Photoshop to make her magnified breast milk look like glimmering gold.

She says the sample mostly looks gold in color because of the light shining through the microscope, but even so—this is remarkable.

She wrote: “What I saw was a veritable gold mine of water, fat, bacteria, whit blood cells, vitamins, minerals, protein chains, and enzymes, all working together to feed and nourish my daughter! And I MADE this!!!”

“Our bodies do incredible things from growing a freaking human, to giving birth to it, and finally making the food our babies need to grow and thrive, from scratch. That is pretty freaking amazing. We're awesome!” she added.

She’s right: Breast milk provides the perfect nutrition for babies to grow healthy and strong—which is worth a lot more than liquid gold to any parent!
