Meet Milk’s Vegan Twin

Monday, July 30th, 2012

This one’s for all those people like me, who do not like milk. Dairy products contain nutrients and proteins essential for the human body but some of us just can’t take it. If you’ve been avoiding dairy because of the smell or taste or something else, here is the perfect alternate-almond milk.

Everyone is trying to lose weight and if you are one among them, you’ll be happy to know that almond milk has great weight management properties. Plain almond milk without any sugars or added flavours contain as little as 60 calories per 8 oz serving size meaning you can get all the goodness of dairy without fearing weight gain.

Almond milk also contains zero cholesterol and about 5mg of sodium per serving. You can have almond milk everyday and consuming foods with less cholesterol and sodium content keeps the heart healthy and regulates blood pressure. Also with a normal intake of almond milk, your body gets 150mg of potassium.

A glass of Almond milk will provide your body with about 30% of daily calcium requirements and 25% of Vitamin D. These two essential nutrients add strength to the bones and are recommended for men, woman, children and even infants. In case you didn’t know, Vitamin D will improve your bodily immunity and decreases chances of osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease. Because of the magnesium content in almond milk, the calcium gets better absorbed and you’ll start feeling stronger sooner than with intake of external body supplements.

Almond milk not just keeps you healthy on the inside, but on the outside too. With every serving of almond milk your body gets 50% of daily Vitamin E requirements which is great for skin. Vitamin E keeps your skin glowing and also moderates how the body uses Vitamin A helping improve eye sight. These and many more benefits all in glass-start drinking almond milk today.
