World Milk Day celebrated globally : Health benefits of drinking milk
The 14th World Milk Day was observed on the 1st of June around the globe, an important international observance. The observance was launched by the UNESCO-affiliated Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 2001 to focus on the nutritional benefits of milk for humans' health. Scientific researchers have proved that milk is a great source of vitamins and nutrients, and it has umpteen health benefits.

It was on this day, where health benefits of milk are also advocated. First, milk has lactic acid and amino acids that help keep skin smooth, silky and moisturized.

Secondly, milk is a great source of calcium, which when taken with vitamin D, is essential for healthy bones and better teeth.

Thirdly, since milk contains protein, it is extremely helpful in rebuilding our muscles. Many health experts recommend drinking a glass of milk after exercise or workout.

Fourthly, a glass of warm milk will help relax your tense muscles, soothe frayed nerves and de-stress you at the end of the day, if you have it before going to bed.

Fifthly, Vitamins A and B in milk can help build good eyesight.

Besides building general health, milk works as a medicine also. It is helpful in lowering high blood pressure; reducing the risk of strokes; lowering of cholesterol; and lowering the risk of certain cancers.

The milk industry has grown over the years and several varieties of milk such as whole, two percent, low-fat and fat free are available to choose from according to your taste and choice.
