PROVED: How Cow Milk Improves Your Immune System

Cow’s milk is the most widely consumed beverage in India. For generations, it has been a staple in Kerala’s households. But why is it an integral part of our diet? Why is it used to make a wide array of desserts and delicacies? Is it the taste factor?

The answer isn’t confined to its taste and nourishment effect alone. Cow milk is considered to be vital for a perfect balanced meal. That’s why our mothers insist that we have at least one glass of milk daily. Now a glass of milk comes in various forms like smoothies, shakes, flavored drinks etc. Milk from cows incorporates many essential nutrients, which is why it’s also a major remedial ingredient in various Ayurvedic treatments.

That said, here are proven ways how cow milk improves your immune system.

Strengthens both muscles and bones

As one of the best natural sources of calcium, cow milk aids in the development of bones as well as muscles thus also playing a key role in enhancing core strength. Cow milk also helps reduce the risk of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Cow milk also contains phosphorus, vitamin D and magnesium that are highly beneficial for the growth of the body.

It’s a brain food

Vitamin B in cow milk calms down nerves, helps maintain a proper sleep cycle, and improves memory and sharpness. For growing children, this especially helps in brain development.

Immunity Enhancement

Cow milk also has a lot of antioxidants in it like Zinc, vitamin E and selenium that improve the body’s natural resistance against various ailments.

Helps Fight Depression

The body benefits from vitamin D as it supports the production of Serotonin - a hormone associated with mood, sleep and appetite. Many research suggests a clear connection between lack of vitamin D and clinical depression. As cow milk is a great source of vitamin D, it can be inferred that this helps in producing more serotonin and hence helps fight depression.

Good For A Healthy Heart

Cow’s milk is rich in omega-3 fats which can increase HDL cholesterol (the good one) and subsequently reduce LDL cholesterol (the bad one). A glass of cow’s milk every day allows the body to fight increasing levels of bad cholesterol thus protecting the heart from many consequent ailments.

Apart from the benefits mentioned above, cow’s milk still has a lot more to offer. There is more than one reason why many generations of Indians have been adamant about getting good quality cow milk for their daily diet. Many pediatricians recommend including cow’s milk to the diet of children who indulge a lot in outdoor activities as it contributes significantly to their physical and mental development.
