What is the use of dairy products and whether adults should drink milk

Dairy products are divided into, in fact, milk and milk. First and second are good for the body.

This is in exclusive comments for Health 24 said the doctor-gastroenterologist of the Medical centre Medicover, PhD Christine quits.

Lactose is one of the most important nutrients for the young child. For the first months of life lactose is the main source of energy, accounting for 40-45% of daily needs. Milk lactose content is 6-7 grams per 100 ml. cow’s milk is 4.5-5 grams per 100 ml.

“Milk contains the minimum essential body kit minerals, namely: phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, potassium, and of salts of citric, hydrochloric and other acids. Magnesium, phosphorus and mainly calcium are included in the composition of bone and tooth tissues. Magnesium besides affects the heart muscle, and the phosphorus included in the composition of brain cells and nervous tissue in General.”

None of the food product does not replenish the body with calcium and phosphorus like milk and dairy products. In addition, milk contains a large supply of vitamins A, B1, B12. There are certain myths about the presence of large amounts of vitamin D in milk. Unfortunately, cow’s milk is not a product with the highest content of this vitamin.


Therefore, in its deficiency in the body, confirmed by blood test, it is not necessary to increase the proportion of diet that is cow’s milk. Instead, goat and soy in this case is much better. Also, vitamin D in sufficient quantity can be obtained from Cheddar, Gouda, Edam, and Parmesan cheeses with mold, as well as applications of protein based on milk.

In General, when a diagnosed deficiency of calcium or vitamin D should be remembered that the exchange and absorption in the body is interrelated and the use of only one of them may not give significant effect.

Among dairy products is extremely useful is the yogurt. It contains a Grand database of lactobacilli and other microorganisms, most of which is part of probiotics. And in the production of sour milk using Streptococcus thermophilus, which absorbs and processes the lactose, therefore, applies to lactase deficiency. This gram-positive bacterium has an acidifying effect and can stop fermentation in the gut, providing a bactericidal effect against pathogenic microorganisms.

Cheese also has probiotic activity, and a diuretic effect that helps in conditions of stress. It also contains very valuable to the body as vitamins B1, B2, PP, C, and calcium. Regarding the yogurt, they are different. Eat yogurt with Lactobacillus, have bifidobacteria there with the spores of the bacteria which have a purifying effect on the intestines and help to restore microflora. It is important not to be mistaken with the selection of the right kind of yogurt, because not all bacteria are equally useful.

“And the unsupervised use of a certain type of bacteria can lead to increased hyperresponsiveness of the bowel. Therefore, eat no more than 500 grams of yogurt a day, from time to time taking breaks. Preference for yogurt own cooking, or the dyes and preservatives”.
