Default Daily Glass of Milk Provides Ageing Benefits and Reduces Chronic Stress

A daily glass of milk is not only good for kids, but as it turns out adults too, for a new study has found that its key nutrient Vitamin D has aging benefits linked to reduced inflammation.

Milk is a primary source of calcium and vitamin D in the diet. In fact, more than 70 percent of the calcium comes from milk and milk products.Milk is one of the few food sources of vitamin D, which is fast emerging as a �super nutrient.�

Three servings of low fat or fat-free milk provides 900 mg of calcium, 300 IU of vitamin D and 80 mg of magnesium daily.

I have always known milk to be a good source of nutrition, but I wonder why the reference to "low fat or fat-free milk"
Perhaps my understanding of Vit D isn't perfect. I had thought that Vit D is a fat soluble Vitamin, so removing fat from milk must surely remove the availabilty of Vit D, and therefore must interfere with the absorption of calcium.
Please can someone clarify this? I am very happy with my supply of raw, untreated milk, which retains all its fat, in its natural non-homogenised form!

Sorry to burst the bubble here, but milk is not healthy. Vitamin D3 is very beneficial, but milk is one of the main reasons people are so sick. Any study that shows milk to be healthy, is flawed. Milk is BIG BUSINESS, period. They will do whatever they have to do to protect it! No other mammals drink milk past the weening stage. Hmmm...
