A PURE AND PLEASANT DRINK

Quraan – CHAPTER 16 VERSE 66

Translation: ” And surely for you, there is a lesson in cattle. We provide for you, out of what there is in their bellies, from between feces and blood, the drink of milk, pure and pleasant for those who drink.

The Sustainer and Nourisher of our bodies alerts us of that which is pure, thus there can be no doubt in this drink, namely pure milk, which is manufactured in a miraculous way.

The benefits of pure milk are:

1. Helps lower blood pressure

Cow’s milk is a good source of protein and calcium, as well as nutrients including vitamin B12 and iodine. It also contains magnesium, which is important for bone development and muscle function, and whey and casein, which have been found to play a role in lowering blood pressure.

2. Good for healthy bone development in all ages

The UK’s National Health Service recommends children between the age of one and three consume 350 milligrams of calcium a day for healthy bone development. Calcium is also crucial during adolescence for the development of bone strength. Teenage years can be a defining period to avoid the risk of bone weakness later in life, particularly for women after the menopause, who lose the benefits of oestrogen.

3. Maintains Heart Health

According to American Heart Association, higher potassium intake and a lower sodium intake are important for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies show thataround 25% of the women who consumed the most potassium had a 21% lower risk of any type of stroke and a 27% lower risk of ischemic stroke. For best results, you can also opt for skim or low fat cow’s milk

4. Boosts Immune System

In addition to calcium and protein, cow’s milk also contains excellent micronutrients including antioxidant compounds like vitamin E, selenium and zinc. Research has already linked the consumption of natural grass-fed cow milk to improving immunity and protection against diseases. It can also improve the appearance and youthfulness of your skin

5. Helps Prevent Weight Gain

Several studies have linked milk intake to a lower risk of obesity.

Interestingly, this benefit has only been associated with whole milk

A study in 145 three-year-old Latino children found that higher milk-fat consumption was associated with a lower risk of childhood obesity.

Another study including over 18,000 middle-aged and elderly women showed that eating more high-fat dairy products was associated with less weight gain and a lower risk of obesity.

Milk contains a variety of components that may contribute to weight loss and prevent weight gain.

For example, its high-protein content helps you feel full for a longer period of time, which may prevent overeating
