Hey Guys!

When you think of milk do you think of babies, kids and healthy growing bones? Well if so then think about adding adults to that equation as well. According to this weeks article there are 6 reasons why drinking milk can be an essential part of your diet.

If you don’t do dairy like Dr. Celeste that’s fine too. Just wanted to support those who can consume dairy without side effects.

Several benefits of drinking milk are:

Glowing SkinMilk has Lactic and Amino Acids which helps to moisturize and smooth the skin.
 
Healthy Bones and TeethMilk is abundant in calcium, which is needed for healthy bones and teeth. 
 
Strong MusclesDrink a glass of milk after workouts! Milk consist of protein, which aids in the rebuilding of muscles.
 
Weight LossResearch has shown that women who consume low-fat or skim milk lose more weight than those who avoid milk in their diet.
 
Less StressNeed to relax? drink a cup of warm milk before going to bed.
 
Healthy BodyMilk contains Vitamins A and B which is good for maintaining good eyesight. It’s also known to lower the risk of certain cancers.
 
Also, according to the National Dairy Council, milk is filled with nine essential nutrients that benefit our health:
 
  • Calcium: Builds healthy bones and teeth; maintains bone mass
  • Protein: Serves as a source of energy; builds/repairs muscle tissue
  • Potassium: Helps maintain a healthy blood pressure
  • Phosphorus: Helps strengthen bones and generate energy
  • Vitamin D: Helps maintain bones
  • Vitamin B12: Maintains healthy red blood cells and nerve tissue
  • Vitamin A: Maintains the immune system; helps maintain normal vision and skin
  • Riboflavin (B2): Converts food into energy
  • Niacin: Metabolizes sugars and fatty acids

In addition, the USDA states that adults should consume three servings of milk, cheese or yogurt a day. A serving size is 1 cup of milk or yogurt, 1.5 ounces of natural cheese or 2 ounces of processed cheese.

 
Note: if you’re concerned about the hormones in milk, opt for organic milk instead. Or switch to a milk alternative like soy, almond, or rice milk. They, too, have loads of benefits.
