Milk, one of the better drinks on the market yet one many seem to avoid; but why is it that this beverage is frowned upon?

Getting your daily dose of calcium

Calcium plays an essential part in our diets, helping us to overcome various ailments, some of which include problems with bones, poor teeth, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, obesity, type two diabetes, cancer and hydration.

Despite many studies suggesting that the consumption of milk helps reduce the effects of various bodily ailments, a number of individuals still avoid the drink. Many worry that dairy products are fattening and contain an unwanted number of calories, others simply dislike the taste.

Skin perfection

A common myth suggests that milk adds to the effects of bad skin. Cleopatra actually took daily milk baths in order to keep her skin supple, soft and glowing and the drink contains a huge number of nutrients that boast skin-boosting properties.

Lactic acid acts as an exfoliant while the various enzymes help smooth the skin. Amino acids are another skin-smoothing property housed in the white stuff.
