For quite some time now, we've been told that consuming dairy products could lead to a ton of health problems like obesity and bloating. In fact, many dietitians recommend that one should try and cut out dairy products from their diet as much as possible. But, we also know that milk is one of the healthiest products that we can consume owing to its calcium content and ability to strengthen bones.
But that's not all that milk is good for. Researchers claim that consuming milk could actually help keep chronic diseases at bay. Experts found that women who moderately consumed milk during pregnancy gave birth to children who weighed healthier and had better bone mineral content during their childhood. In fact, milk is supposed to be so good that the daily consumption of it could help reduce the risk of frailty and sarcopenia in elderly people.
And that's not all. Milk consumption has been linked to a number of health benefits. Firstly, milk is said to not only contribute to a number of nutrients that the body requires, but can also contribute to meeting the nutritional requirements for protein, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, selenium, vitamin A, riboflavin, vitamin B12, and pantothenic acid. In fact, it was also found to help reduce the risk of vertebral fracture.
Consuming low-fat dairy products was also linked with a reduced risk of metabolic syndrome and might also slightly decrease the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and conditions. When moderately consumed, these foods may help prevent colorectal cancer and bladder cancer, however, no association was found between milk products and prostate cancer. Low-fat dairy product consumption might also prove to be beneficial to people who suffer from type-2 diabetes as they could then consume foods like low-fat yoghurt or low-fat milk.
As mentioned above, there seem to be a plethora of benefits when it comes to consuming milk. So, start drinking at least one glass of milk and you'll notice the difference in your energy levels and health in no time. Stay tuned for more updates.
