Which Of These 7 Types Of Milk Are Best For You?

Greetings, everyone! Up until a few decades ago, the only milk
option we had was that of a cow. Nowadays there are many alternatives, starting
from soy to coconut and even almond. Yes, cow’s milk has more protein, but almond
milk is better for people who are lactose intolerant. Soy milk is a rich source of calcium and potassium. On the other hand, coconut milk is rich in
monounsaturated fat, Vitamin C and iron. Which type is best for you? Let’s begin with the most popular forms
of milk! #1 Cow’s Milk This is probably the most famous milk on Earth. Most of us are introduced to it right after
birth. When you hear the word “milk”, a cow is
one of the first things that pops into our minds So why is cow’s milk so popular? Cow’s milk is good for your bones and teeth. This is mainly because of the high amount
of calcium found in it. It also contains Vitamin D, which helps calcium
develop strong bones. Another interesting thing about cow’s milk
is that it is versatile. It is also used to create other dairy products
like butter, cheese and yogurt. All of these foods are very nutritious. Yogurt even contains probiotics that are good
for your digestive system. But cow’s milk also has flaws. People who are allergic to the protein found
in milk can have serious problems. These problems include wheezing, diarrhea
and bleeding from the intestines. Children who have a family history of heart
disease are usually at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular problems. These children need to avoid cow’s milk because
it contains a lot of cholesterol and saturated fat. There are people who are lactose intolerant. People like that shouldn’t be having cow’s
milk. If they do, they may have stomach problems. Enjoying this video, we have so many different
types of milk to talk about. Before we continue, make sure to hit subscribe

need to look for alternatives. One of the first we can think of is almond
milk. We have already done a video on almond milk. Check it out! In that video, we discussed how almond milk
is good for your skin, heart and muscles. This is mainly due to nutrients like Vitamin
A, Vitamin E and calcium. Almond milk also contains riboflavin, which
has the ability to boost your healing factor, and shorten the duration of injuries. It is also easy to make almond milk. All you need is water, almonds and sweetener. Of course, this makes almond milk sound like
the perfect product to replace cow’s milk. Well, that is not how it works. Almond milk has one major flaw, it lacks protein. If you are going to say goodbye to cow’s
milk in favour of almond, you will need another protein source. Whether you prefer to choose green vegetables
or meat, you will definitely have to pick one. Of course, you can also try a different type
of milk altogether. We are talking about… #3 Soy Milk While it may not have as much protein as cow’s
milk, it still has a decent amount. Unlike cow’s milk, soy milk is a good source
of fiber. If you have been paying attention to our videos
then you already know that fiber is good for your gut. Fiber helps to slow down the process of digestion,
making sure the food gets processed properly. Of course, similar to every other source of
fiber, having too much of it can kill your appetite. So you will have to be careful with this one. Similar to almond milk, soy milk also contains
a healthy amount of riboflavin. This means your body’s healing abilities
will strengthen if you consume it regularly. Along with that, you will get a dose of magnesium
and potassium. So if you have blood pressure problems, soy
milk is definitely for you. Yet there is one nutrient that gives soy milk
a slight edge, and that is Vitamin C. One of the major problems with soy milk is
its effect on thyroid. Soy contains goitrogens that block the body’s
ability to absorb iodine. A study has suggested that over consumption
of soy can block the production of the thyroid hormone. #4 Coconut Milk You want a nutritious alternative that can
help you lose weight? Coconut milk is your best bet! It also contains antioxidants that help to
protect you from inflammation. It can be especially great for those who have
low blood pressure. This is due to the electrolytes it contains. They help to control and regulate your blood
pressure. The same compound also gives you more energy. Coconut milk is also a good source of magnesium. This helps to make sure that your nerves are
performing their regular functions properly. Magnesium also helps to maintain muscle function
and a healthy immune system. Coconut milk is known for its ability to lower
cholesterol levels in your body. This helps prevent heart disease. Of course, the antioxidants present in coconuts
prove to be extremely useful in this case. This all points to the fact that coconut milk
is very good for anyone who can’t drink cow’s milk. Well, it is as good a substitute as almond
milk and soy milk. Just like them, it also has flaws. Coconut milk has a very high amount of fat,
carbs and calories. You can still drink it, but we recommend you
don’t have too much. Speaking of coconuts, we did a video on coconut
flour and its health benefits. Have a look! #5 Goat’s Milk Why is goat’s milk getting a mention? Well first, it gives you antioxidants that
help to prevent inflammation. More importantly, goat’s milk contains less
fat than cow’s milk. On the downside, it also contains the same
amount of lactose as cow’s milk. So if lactose intolerant is your reason for
quitting cow’s milk, then goat’s milk isn’t for you. #6 Oat Milk While those with gluten intolerance will do
best to stay away from oat milk, it can be a decent alternative for others. Especially the ones who are lactose intolerant. Oat neither contains lactose nor does it contain
milk protein. This makes it a great alternative to cow’s
milk. Another important thing in oat milk is dietary
fiber. We aren’t going to bore you with another
lecture on dietary fiber. Instead check out our video, “Why You Should
Eat More Fiber?” #7 Rice Milk Rice Milk is a delightful combination of potassium,
Vitamin D and calcium. It’s often a preferred alternative to cow’s
milk. Since it is plant-based, vegans take a liking
to it. Additionally, it doesn’t have any type of
lactose, so if you are intolerant, you can try it. There is a major drawback with rice milk though. Similar to almond milk, it also doesn’t have
protein. Either you will have to shift to a different
type of plant-based milk, or include another source of protein. If you happen to be a vegetarian or vegan,
it may be slightly more difficult for you but not impossible. After all, you can always rely on green vegetables. If you eat meat, shifting to rice milk would
mean, you would have to increase your meat intake. Did you find this list interesting? Would you consider trying any of these alternatives

  4. I'm lactose intolerant and also want to avoid hormones and phytoestrogens in milk- I've tried them all and settled on almond and coconut milk- rice milk is my least favourite.

  5. Sorry but the only milk that is best for me is cows milk. Mainly because that is the only real true milk to drink. Me and my mother both tried soy, almond, and cashew milks. And they all tasted really disgusting to us. I have yet to tried those other milk alternatives. But why bother when they are going to taste just as disgusting. The only way that those milk alternatives can taste good. Is by adding both chocolate syrup and dairy milk to them. Or if you make smoothies out of them. That way you wonโ€™t taste the horrible after taste of them. Drinking them straight is enough to make me want to throw up. Sorry but that is how I feel about those milk alternatives.
