The snow-white, innocent milk that we pour into our glass contains countless miraculous benefits for a healthy and strong life.
One of milk’s most important components, calcium is a leading mineral of the human body by composing 2% of the body weight. 1 glass of regularly consumed milk ensures growth and strengthening of bones and teeth by entering into their structure. It also takes on important tasks in controlling the heartbeat, reducing blood pressure, playing roles in the digestive system, nerve conduction and blood clotting. Also being a rich source of phosphorus, calcium contains minerals such as magnesium, zinc and potassium. It plays an important role in energy production and cell renewal. As for providing the continuity of growth and strengthening the immune system, zinc (one of milk’s contents) comes to our aid.
This being the case, it becomes crucial to implement the right techniques when consuming and conserving the milk that offers us all these miracles. Severe vitamin B losses can be experienced when milk is boiled over 10 minutes. Raw milk needs to undergo a proper system of processes to be purified from harmful microbes and preserve its rich vitamins and minerals. For this reason, it is advised to consume UHT or pasteurized milk and to provide proper conditions when conserving the milk.
