Milk makes life, and your health, better in so many ways. From helping you get your vitamins and nutrients at mealtime, to helping you recover after you work out. Milk can even help you finally get to sleep at the end of a crazy day. Milk’s there for you at every hour and every age—whether you’re growing fast or trying to slow down the aging process. The videos on this page bring milk’s benefits to life in ways you definitely haven’t seen before. Enjoy!
BUILD MUSCLE WITH MILK
Milk helps you get strong and stay strong
What you drink is important—especially when you’re active. The carbohydrates and protein in milk help build your muscles and keep them going longer. What’s more, science is finding that chocolate milk’s post-workout recovery benefits go far beyond tasting delicious.
RECHARGE OVERNIGHT WITH MILK
The calming effects of milk
Sometimes the old remedies are the best ones. That advice about drinking a warm glass of milk before sleep is a perfect example. Whatever temperature you enjoy it at, the tryptophan and calcium in milk can help you sleep more soundly.
MILK AND YOUR HEART: STRONGER TOGETHER
Even Stronger Together
Your heart’s worst enemy is cardiovascular disease. Luckily, milk is its best friend. More and more research is finding that an “intake of dairy products is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, and with lower blood pressure in adults.”
SPICY FOOD IS NO MATCH FOR MILK
The best way to chill out chiles
While water may be your best bet to extinguish an actual flame, when the heat source is habanero or any of its spicy relatives, H2O won’t get the job done. You need milk, with its casein—a naturally occurring flame retardant.
