I had milk every night for 30 days and witnessed these 10 benefits, including weight loss!


1. Builds Healthy Bones

Milk has high levels of vitamin D which is required by the body for absorption of calcium necessary for the formation of healthy bones. Thus, milk can support the body in healing itself and in the renewal of any depleted vitamin D content. Furthermore, vitamin D can offset the occurrence and harm caused by many diseases like osteoporosis, also called the ‘brittle bone’ ailment, heart disease and diabetes.

2. ​I slept better and fell asleep faster and Helps My Sleeps Well

Having milk before bed can remarkably improve your sleep quality.

Milk contains tryptophan and melatonin, compounds known to make you fall asleep and promote a good night’s sleep. For the unversed, melatonin is also known as the sleep hormone which helps in regulating your body’s circadian rhythm and help you sleep better.

Secondly, tryptophan is an amino acid which plays an important role in the production of serotonin. Serotonin also increases the amount of melatonin in your body and melatonin is the hormone responsible for good sleep.

3. Better digestion

The most important benefit was better digestion. By having warm milk every night before my sleep, the first thing in the morning I did was rushing to the loo. A clean system is one important aspect for a happy and healthy day ahead.

4. Aids in Weight Loss

Milk is basically high in protein. Protein and fibre are the two most important nutrients that our body requires when we are on a weight loss plan. Milk also helps to keep your sugar levels in control which means you won’t feel tired or hungry for next few hours after you have it.

Lactium may affect brain receptors to help control stress and anxiety.
