Cow's Milk And Milk Alternatives -- Is Mare's Milk Too Exotic? Part 1

Written by Núria Roig

Milk is a word that brings about impassioned arguments. Some defend cow's milk like tigers; others demote it and do not give it a chance. You would think people are discussing a dangerous illegal drug.

To defend their position cow's milk critics maintain that humans arerepparttar only mammals that consume milk in adult age. This has never convinced me, because except when we humans become aggressive, we do everything different fromrepparttar 138263 animal kingdom.

Inrepparttar 138264 first place we should keep in mind that milk is a food, and treat it as such. Before modern measurement methods broke down every nutritious substance torepparttar 138265 smallest possible unit, people relied on traditional knowledge, real life experience, and their own body intelligence to decide if a food was healthful for them. Likewise mothers' intuition regarding their children's nourishment was accepted asrepparttar 138266 most natural thing on earth.

Don't get me wrong, research is necessary and very useful, but it is not absolute. It has an incidental byproduct, which is that regarding nutrition too many consumers prefer to rely blindly on general recommendations, become lazy, and forget that an essential part of staying healthy is listening to their own body signals.

Most adults tolerate one glass of top quality or organic milk a day quite well. However, any amount of milk can cause stomachache if you insist on drinking more of it than your system can take. But isn't itrepparttar 138267 same with all foods?

Cow's milk is notrepparttar 138268 only good source of calcium, which seems to berepparttar 138269 main worry. For example, dark green vegetables andrepparttar 138270 hiziki seaweed contain easily absorbable calcium. Real vegetarians need fifty per cent less calcium than those who eat meat every day.

If you love milk products, a reasonable compromise is drinking 8,5 ounces or 250 ml of warm cow's milk a day, atrepparttar 138271 most, andrepparttar 138272 rest as fermented forms of milk like kefir. Or you can emulate Mediterranean who add some milk to their morning coffee and that's it forrepparttar 138273 day.

Lactose Intolerance And Cow's Milk Allergy

Inrepparttar 138274 Bible milk is a recurrent symbol of abundance. Today milk flows everywhere, but many adults suffer from lactose intolerance, which isrepparttar 138275 inability to digest this milk sugar easily, becauserepparttar 138276 body does not produce enough of an enzyme called lactase.
