Beauty and Health Benefits of Drinking Milk
Most of us do not like drinking milk. Even many kids do not drink milk regularly. Even I used to hate milk when I was a child. The sheer smell of it used to make me feel sick. It was only when I grew up that I realized the importance of milk. Undoubtedly, milk is one of the most common beverages drunk by lots of people. Drinking milk on a regular basis can be helpful for both beauty and health aspects. The main sugar present in milk as carbohydrates is Lactose.
Checking the purity of milk
These days it is very difficult to find pure edible items. In the past everything used to be very pure and that’s why the average age of a person was also high. These days finding pure milk is also a puzzle but you may check the milk for its purity at your home. Here we tell you a very easy method. Take any vessel and keep it in a slanting position. Now put some drops of milk on this slanted vessel. Let the milk come down at its own. If the milk comes down with a flow, that is, without stopping anywhere, then it is not pure. On the other hand if it flows with difficulty and leave some spots behind then it is pure.
For strong bones and teeth
Milk is a rich source of calcium. And all of us are very well aware of the fact that calcium is a very important element when it comes to the growth of bones. The deficiency of calcium can cause certain diseases like rickets or osteoporosis. Your bones may turn weak due to lack of calcium. So if you want to have strong bones as well as teeth then you should drink milk regularly. Drinking two glasses of milk each day supplies necessary calcium to our body.
Solution for a patchy skin
If you are often encountered with the problem of some patches on your skin, either black or red, then you should check your milk drinking habit. If you are not taking milk then start doing so as soon as possible. Drinking milk on a regular basis can cut down your skin flare-ups. Even the red patches decrease if one makes it a necessary part of one’s diet. Now a days there are lots of protein powder and other kinds of powder available in the market which may be dissolved in milk for a better flavor and increased nutrition value.
Drinking milk for strong and beautiful nails, teeth and hair

No matter how high quality shampoo you use or which branded tooth paste you use but the real effect that will reflect will be of what you eat. So all those young girls who want strong and beautiful nails, teeth and hair should include milk in their diet.

Not only this but the Milk also contains Vitamins A, B6, and biotin plus potassium and all of these work together and keep our hair soft and shiny.
Milk as a curing therapy
Milk is also used for curing small health related problems. For example if sometimes you feel acidity in the morning time then you may simply sip half cup of cold milk. This provides relief from acidity. If someone experiences burning sensations while urinating then drinking raw milk and cold water can reduce the problem. Boil milk and 4-5 black peppers together and drink this to say goodbye to the cough problem. Bananas and milk are great combination for providing the boost of energy. The growing children should definitely use this combo.
