The Health Benefits of Milk

Updated: Apr 1, 2020

Milk is filled with nine essential nutrients that benefit our health:

  • Calcium: Builds healthy bones and teeth; maintains bone mass

  • Protein: Serves as a source of energy; builds/repairs muscle tissue

  • Potassium: Helps maintain a healthy blood pressure

  • Phosphorus: Helps strengthen bones and generate energy

  • Vitamin D: Helps maintain bones

  • Vitamin B12: Maintains healthy red blood cells and nerve tissue

  • Vitamin A: Maintains the immune system; helps maintain normal vision and skin

  • Riboflavin (B2): Converts food into energy

  • Niacin: Metabolizes sugars and fatty acids

In other words, milk packs quite a punch when it comes to nutrition—and you don't have to drink a gallon to reap the benefits, Just one 8-ounce glass of milk provides the same amount of vitamin D you'd get from 3.5 ounces of cooked salmon, as much calcium as 2 1/4 cups of broccoli, as much potassium as a small banana, as much vitamin A as two baby carrots and as much phosphorus as a cup of kidney beans!
