Nourishment for All Ages
As the most abundant mineral in our body, calcium is important for the maintenance of healthy bones. The daily intake of calcium recommended by the Health Ministry is 800mg per day for adults and 1,000mg per day for adolescents and adults above 50 years old. As bone mass peaks during adolescence, it is important to ensure adolescents' recommended calcium intake is met. As for adults, calcium is important to fight against the onset of osteoporosis.
There are a number of nutrients that help the body use calcium efficiently to maintain bone health. Over the years, various studies have shown that magnesium helps with calcium absorption and retention in the body. Vitamin D plays an important role in regulating calcium in the body while vitamin K works closely with calcium to form strong bones. How do we get all these nutrients in our daily diet? Milk is not only a main source of calcium but also other important minerals and vitamins that help in maintaining bone health.
Benefits of Goat's Milk
Goat's milk naturally contains high calcium — just three glasses of milk can provide about 90% of an adult's reference intake of calcium based on the European Union's regulations. Your other sources of calcium should be foods such as dark green vegetables and nuts to make up for the daily requirement. An interesting property of goat's milk is the globules of fats, which are easy to digest in the intestine while the protein forms a softer curd. This unique property helps in digestive health and comfort. A 1996 study by the University of Tampere suggests that the high calcium content in goat's milk helps lower blood pressure.
