Skin Superfood: Milk
NATURE’S WELLNESS DRINK
This cold, creamy, white beverage is full of calcium, vitamins (A, B2, B5, B12, D), potassium, phosphorous, zinc and a balance of other nutrients that have been proven to build your bones and teeth as well as promote the healthy function of your muscles and blood vessels. And in the midst of all the new vitamin waters, energy drinks, and sodas containing too much sugar, flavoring, artificial ingredients, as well as high doses of caffeine, milk is a natural, healthy choice.

Milk is one of the most nutritious foods in our diet. Milk is naturally nutrient-rich and balanced with a unique proportion of carbs and protein – in addition to the bone-boosting calcium, phosphorous and vitamin D. A single cup (250 mL) glass gives you as much protein as a large egg, as much calcium as 8 cups (2 L) of raw broccoli, as much potassium as a medium-size banana, almost half the vitamin B12 you need in a day, and much more. These nutrients offer important benefits like helping to build and maintain healthy muscles and bones, reduce high blood pressure, achieve and maintain a healthy weight and prevent type II diabetes. Low-fat or fat-free milk are great alternative, providing a lot of nutrients for very modest – worthwhile – calories.
People who are lactose intolerant don’t have enough of the enzyme needed to easily digest the natural sugar (lactose) in milk products. It is important to have your symptoms professionally diagnosed. Lactose intolerance is not an allergy and, in most cases, individuals can still take advantage of the benefits of milk products. Often people who are lactose intolerant will be able to enjoy firm cheeses (Cheddar, Parmesan, Havarti, Gouda…), as they contain virtually no lactose, as well as yogurts due the presence of beneficial probiotics.
