Milk Is Powerful for Adults as Well

By Tom Herrin

Children have one primary source of nutrition when they are babies.  That is milk.  We all know that.  It is considered to be necessary for proper growth and development.  It has plenty of protein and calcium along with a few other things that help to keep the body strong.  The school lunch program was established on a nationwide basis around 75 years ago.  It was designed to ensure that children received what they needed in the way of nutrition, and the one thing that must be served at every meal is milk.  

While many of us drank quite a bit of milk when we were young, many of us gave it up as we grew older.  Some people seem to feel that they don't need any milk at all.  Drinking milk can do a lot of things to support good health for adults and should be included for the best health possible.

Milk Is Good With Meals and Healthy

Adults can gain some good things from drinking milk.  Not only does it still go well with some meals, but it is healthy all on its own.  The protein in milk is far more than many foods that have lots more calories.  Since it also has a high water content, along with the protein, it can make a great supplement for those who are trying to manage their weight.  It has potassium, too, that may help them to manage blood pressure.

Milk Can Be Hard to Digest for Some

Even though it can be really good, milk may be bad for some.  Quite a few individuals are lactose intolerant and become violently ill when they drink it.  Others have issues with a protein in milk referred to as A1.  Milk has two primary proteins.  Some people have other kinds of reactions as well.  

Some Good Solutions Are Available

Those who would like to have the benefits that milk has to offer may be able to have it without feeling sick.  There are several brands of milk available that are labeled as being lactose-free.  There are also a few producers who offer milk that does not have the A1 protein.  These are generally advertised as A2.  for those may be in need of something that is higher in calcium but can't drink milk from cows, there are several other kinds of milk.  The one I see the most is almond milk.
