The Top 5 Benefits Of Cow Milk

By: Shilpa

Milk is a staple in almost every Indian household. As a matter of fact, Indians have always considered milk a vital part of their lifestyle, for many centuries. Milk is a key element in the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda and also a viable home remedy for many ailments. 


Though Indians enjoy milk in the form of various desserts and savories, not many of us are fully aware of the huge health benefits of cow milk. Even when our mothers insisted us on drinking a glass of milk every day, most of us never wondered about the specific health benefits of milk. Many Indians drink milk at night for a good night’s sleep while many others drink milk simply because they keep certain illnesses at bay. 


This blog covers five of the best benefits of cow milk, emphasizing why it’s considered a truly wholesome beverage for growth and immunity.


1. Strengthens bones and muscles

Cow milk is a great source of calcium - an essential element associated with the development and maintenance of bones and muscles. Ever wonder why bodybuilders add milk to their diet? It not only enhances core strength but also prevents the risk of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Apart from calcium, milk also provides phosphorus, vitamin D and magnesium that aid the overall development of the body. 


2. Aids weight loss

Hard to believe? Milk is proven to reduce hunger pangs while improving metabolism considerably. This, of course, aids in overall weight loss. Moreover, it is also easy to digest. 


3. Reduces the risk of diabetes

A glass of cow milk a day helps maintain the blood sugar levels, enough to significantly reduce the risk of diabetes. Additionally, the essential vitamins and minerals in cow milk ensure that the body processes food properly, resulting in the proper maintenance of glucose and insulin levels in the body. 


4. Great for a healthy heart

Milk is also a great source of omega-3 fats - the kind of fats that directly benefit the heart in more ways than one. Omega-3 fats help improve cholesterol levels while reducing LDL cholesterol and the risk of coronary artery diseases. Ayurveda also recommends milk to be added in the daily diet to reduce the risk of heart attacks. 


5. The ideal brain food

Our parents may know that milk is great for brain development. Science deems them right as milk is a reservoir of vitamin B - a nutrient that can not only calm down nerves but also aids in proper sleep cycles. Vitamin B12 directly influences the sharpness and memory power of the brain, and specifically aids in the overall brain development of children. 


Apart from the benefits above, there is further scientific proof that cow milk enhances immunity, fights depression and promotes better physical growth and development. So the positive benefits are not just physical alone. 


And when it comes to cow milk, Milma is the most trusted brand in Kerala synonymous with good health and nutrition. Have a glass of Milma’s homogenized cow milk a day and experience a positive difference in your health and wellbeing.
