Importance of Milk in our Diet

“Good nutrition creates health in all areas of our existence. All parts are interconnected”

This has been quoted by T. Colin Campbell, an American Biochemist who specialises in the effect of nutrition on long-term health.

Our daily diet should consist of various nutrients like calories, proteins, vitamins, fats, etc. You receive these nutrients from different sources like fresh vegetables, fruits, and most importantly fresh dairy products. Today we will look at how important is milk in our diet.

Dairy products, especially milk is a rich source of calcium and is thus strongly recommended for kids and women.

Milk contains essential nutrients like vitamins, calcium, potassium, etc. Calcium is extremely important for maintaining strong bones and teeth. Milk also contains essential vitamins like vitamin A, D, E and K. Vitamin A helps to improve vision; whereas Vitamin B helps to build red blood cells. Milk helps to convert food into energy because of the phosphorus present in it.

Milk helps to lighten the complexion and also aids muscle growth. As it contains around 80% of water, it helps to rehydrate your body. Cold milk also has a property of reducing acidity. Milk also keeps the heart healthy. These are some of the many advantages, milk provides.

Today, there are many types of milk. These different kinds of milk cater to different purposes. Low-fat milk or fat-free milk for weight loss, whole milk is consumed for weight gain, brands have also come up with lactose-free milk to cater to the lactose intolerant people, skimmed or toned milk for regular use, etc.

Milk has been consumed for centuries now, but lately, milk is being adulterated by the sellers to maximise the profits. It is very necessary to know the perfect place to buy milk from. A trusted source is the one which gives you quality assurances and also delivers quality products time and again. Thus, if you take little precautions, the dairy beverage can offer you a whole lot of nutrients if included in the daily diet.

Looking for a trusted source in today’s time is very difficult. You have to go to different stores to look for different branded dairy products, especially when none of the e-commerce giants is dedicated to selling branded dairy products.

My inspiration is a bit different from 'I love to write'. I simply love to put the world into words. Although everybody is a storyteller at heart, writing stories is a bit different. I believe that perfect words come to you when you love what you write. Here, at Milk and More, the constant support and valuable inputs have made me love writing about milk and its products. The motivation which I receive here has inspired me to write all the precious articles you see.
