Maola Milk | Four Reasons to Drink More Milk
Maola Milk Blog - Four Reasons to Drink More Milk

Here are four reasons to drink more milk:

1) Milk Provides Essential Nutrients

Milk is naturally packed with 13 essential nutrients, making it a powerhouse nutrient drink. These 13 nutrients are protein, calcium, potassium, riboflavin, phosphorous, niacin, zinc, iodine, selenium, pantothenic acid and vitamins D, A, and B12. Calcium, potassium, dietary fiber, and vitamin D are considered “under-consumed” by the 2020-2025 Dietary Nutrient Guidelines for Americans. All four of those nutrients can be found naturally in Maola Milk. Plant-based alternatives, such as oat, contain only half the essential nutrients that Maola Milk has, with some nutrients added in by manufacturers. You don’t have to worry about additives when it comes to naturally nutrient-rich, farm-fresh Maola Milk.

2) Milk Has Natural Electrolytes

Did you know that milk naturally contains electrolytes? The same electrolytes that are added to most commercial recovery drinks to help you rehydrate can be naturally found in milk. Electrolytes help your body work by producing energy and help your muscles contract so your heart can pump blood throughout your body. Research suggests that chocolate milk may help you stay even more hydrated after exercise than water and some sports drinks would.

3) Milk Is Packed with Protein

Maola Milk has eight grams of high-quality protein per serving that has been shown to help athletes gain more lean muscle and lose fat when compared to drinking a carb-only beverage and as part of a regular workout and recovery routine. Many plant-based alternatives, such as almond and rice, only have one gram of protein per serving.  

4) Milk Can Give You Strong Bones

Calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D found in milk help to build and maintain strong bones and reduce the risk for stress fractures. The high concentration of calcium in milk makes it a powerhouse drink for strengthening our bones and preventing diseases like osteoporosis. Roughly 85% of the phosphorus in the body is in our bones and teeth. Phosphorus helps maintain our bones’ strength. Vitamin D allows our intestines to absorb calcium and regulate the level of phosphorus in our body to keep our bones healthy.
