Organic Milk Health Benefits

A couple of days ago we shared with you one of the new cereals we were eating at the Revolution Greens Headquarters. We were than subsequently inundated with emails asking us questions about organic milk and its health benefits. Here is what we found for you. Organic milk has all the nutritional goodness of non-organic milk but, due to the cows’ more natural diet, it also has some additional potential health benefits. Here they are listed in no particular order:

-Research has shown that organic milk has higher levels of vitamin E, vitamin A and antioxidants
-The incidence of the skin condition eczema in young children was reduced by 36% where the children consumed organic dairy products.
-Organic milk is naturally higher in Omega 3, an essential fatty acid, than non-organic milk.
-Organic dairy farms do not use artificial pesticides (insecticides, fungicides or herbicides) on pastures where cows graze.
-Organic cows are only given antibiotics when they are ill and not as a preventative measure as in non-organic cows.

Do your body good and pick up some organic milk on your next visit to the supermarket.

Here is some more information on organic milk. The Organic Milk Cooperative
