Milk is a rich source of protein and healthy fat. It is also high in calcium, Vitamin B12, and phosphorous. Hence, taking milk every day can help you prevent calcium deficiency and reduce the risk of high blood pressure.

Milk available in the packets cannot provide you the full health benefits. So, we recommend purchasing cow milk directly from the dairy farm near your place.
