Milk is quite known in building bones as it is very rich in calcium. It not only keeps our bones healthy but also provides the body with vitamin and protein boost. Recently, it’s being hailed as a memory aid for them who regularly take minimum one glass of milk every day. Milk and other dairy products are a real help in increasing concentration power. Some time back, there was a test with which it was checked the concentration, memory and learning abilities.
Studies have shown that adults whose diets include dairy products 5-6 times a week did far better in memory tests when compared with those who rarely take dairy products. They are not only good for our mental health but also protect us from health diseases and prevent high blood pressure.
Milk drinkers usually have higher levels of naturally occurring antioxidant called glutathione. Glutathione is important as it could help stave off oxidative stress and the resulting damage caused by reactive chemical compounds which is produced during the normal metabolic process in the brain. It is also good for our muscles. Our muscles become tough if we regularly drink glass milk which eventually increases our immune system.
Three glasses of help also help in preventing Alzheimer’s. The antioxidant glutathione is believed to neutralize potentially harmful chemicals in the brain. The level of glutathione was determined once, at the same time as participants were asked about their diets. This study therefore cannot tell us that a high-dairy diet caused the increased levels of glutathione. It is also unable to show what happens to glutathione levels over time or whether the higher levels are protective. The study has found that increased reported consumption of dairy and milk products was associated with increased levels of the antioxidant glutathione in the brain, but it cannot prove that this was due to the diet or that this will prevent brain disease.
As per tribune, milk should be one of the essential parts of meal. From growing child to adults, everyone should consume milk on a regular basis. Researchers have verified this thing by doing MRI of the 2 kind of brains. One who is regularly taking milk and one who is not? When we are growing up, the case for milk was clear. It is good for you, no doubt. There is one more interesting fact that Cow’s milk isn’t digested well by babies under 12 months. So, it’s better to introduce milk to your baby after a year. It is very important as the child has growing age and it’s the milk only which plays an important role in building his bones. Perfect amount of calcium will surely build his bones as well as mind.
