Benefits of Maola Dairy Products
Most experts agree that milk plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy diet. So whether you choose fat free, 2%, or whole milk, you can be sure you’re selecting a naturally nutrient-rich, calorically-dense, and wholesome food for your family.
Note the top three health benefits of dairy products:
1. Dairy Supports Bone Health
Our bodies use calcium to build up bones and teeth as we develop and continue to use it to maintain bone strength and density as we age. It’s widely known that dairy is a great source of calcium, but dairy products support our bone health in other ways, too. For example, dairy also contains potassium, magnesium, and vitamin D, all vital nutrients supporting bone health.
Many health organizations recommend having between 2 – 3 servings of dairy per day to get enough of these nutrients in your diet, which will help you avoid bone fractures and conditions like osteoporosis.
2. Dairy Products Support Heart Health
According to a Harvard Study, people who eat dairy products, like whole milk and cheese, might have a lower risk of heart disease than those who don’t.
In addition, fermented dairy products, like yogurt and kefir, provide healthy probiotics that can lower cholesterol levels and reduce high blood pressure and heart disease.
3. Dairy Can Lower The Risk of Obesity and Type-2 Diabetes
Lastly, dairy products can help you control your weight and lower your risk of diabetes. Various studies have shown that dairy products reduce fat mass and waist circumference and increase lean body mass, especially when incorporated with an overall healthy diet and exercise.
The calcium and magnesium in dairy products are also linked to a lower frequency of insulin resistance. In addition, probiotics in fermented dairy products also can help you control blood sugar levels. These two benefits show that including dairy in your diet can help you avoid the risk of diabetes.
Health Benefits of Local Dairy Products
Buying dairy products from local dairies helps the community and gives you access to fresher products. The pasteurization and bottling times are much faster (usually within 24 hours) than in larger processing plants.
Additionally, these products are not held in storage for long periods, as is typically the case with national brands at grocery stores. As a result, the health benefits you receive from your dairy products are more evident with these faster processing and shipping times.
At Maola, prioritizing freshness and supporting local dairy farm families is at the heart of everything we do. We’re proud to deliver 100% fresh, local milk to support the health of our community. Shop our products now and taste the Maola difference yourself.
