Milk contains nutrients and can have many health benefits.
Milk is widely known as nutrient-rich with a variety of nutrients that are beneficial to the human body. Some nutrients abundant in milk are vitamin B12, vitamin D, phosphorus, riboflavin, and potassium. It also contains lots of protein and calcium. These nutrients are essential for biochemical body processes, and can aid in bone structure strength and density. They aid in regulating or improving processes including muscle control and growth, serotonin (a chemical in the brain associated with happiness) production, heart rate and health, and blood pressure. Milk is especially high in vitamins that are rare in the food we eat, so it provides the nutrients most people lack the most. This perspective is based upon the fact that these nutrients are essential to our bodies, and milk is the best or only way of getting them.
-Milk is not the only way to get these nutrients, or the best way.
-Milk actually can decrease our bone’s calcium, not increase it.
-Some of the vitamins in milk, such as vitamin D, are added by producers and not naturally occurring.
P Milk provides essential nutrients for our bodies to function, and is the best way to get these nutrients.
