Milk is a representative food rich in calcium. It also contains vitamin D, which helps build and maintain strong bones.
Milk is rich in protein, zinc and selenium. The unexpected health effect that can be obtained by drinking a cup of milk every day has been summarized by ‘It’s Not That’ in the US.
◆ Obesity = High-quality protein in milk provides a feeling of satiety. It reduces hunger and reduces the risk of overeating. Cravings for sweets and cravings for carbohydrates are also reduced. In other words, milk prevents obesity. Among proteins, whey and casein help reduce body fat by regulating food intake, lowering blood sugar levels and increasing fat burning.
◆ Blood pressure = Milk helps lower the risk of high blood pressure. This is thanks to potassium, magnesium, and various other micronutrients. As a result of analyzing 5 related papers, researchers from the Mona Era in Australia confirmed that systolic blood pressure decreased in those who consumed enough dairy products such as milk every day.
◆ Athletic ability = If you drink milk after exercise, you can get the same effect as drinking a sports drink. In other words, milk increases athletic performance. This is because milk contains 13 important nutrients, including calcium and protein, according to nutritionist Jordan Mazur. In particular, whey and casein help increase muscle mass and recover from post-workout fatigue.
◆ Diabetes = A study published in the Journal of Nutrition shows that drinking low-fat milk helps people with pre-diabetes prevent diabetes. In a 10-year follow-up of 639 people, those who drank low-fat milk daily had a 41% lower risk of developing diabetes. Sweet milk must be low-fat milk. Fatty dairy products can raise blood cholesterol levels and increase the risk of heart disease.
