Milk consumption can impact glucose metabolism in both positive and negative ways. When consumed, the lactose in milk is broken down and converted to glucose, which can cause a temporary spike in blood sugar levels. Regular consumption of cow’s milk may improve glucose metabolism, particularly among individuals with diabetes.

The Glass Half Full: Reaping the Benefits of Cow Milk
• Avoid adding sugar or sweeteners; instead, add a pinch of cinnamon to imitate the effect of insulin and help the movement of glucose in the cells.
• Those looking to reduce their milk consumption can try dairy alternatives like soy or almond milk.
• Adding turmeric, which contains the active compound curcumin, can also help with better glucose response.

Cow’s milk is an excellent calcium source which is essential for strong bones and teeth. It is a good source of protein and other nutrients, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamin D, which are beneficial for glucose metabolism. Studies have found that drinking cow’s milk may help lower blood pressure. This is likely due to the high levels of potassium and magnesium found in cow’s milk.
