Milk And Vitamin D

This Sparked Me!

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism reported three servings of lowfat or fat-free milk provides approximately 900 mg of calcium, 300 IU of vitamin D and 80 mg of magnesium daily. Researchers suggest calcium and vitamin D may affect the body's ability to produce or utilize insulin, the hormone the body makes to process sugar that is impaired in those with diabetes and pre-diabetes. You can lower your risk they say with highest dairy intake (3-5 servings per day).

    I notice that maintaining my weight loss goes easier when I have several servings of dairy each day, it does make a difference. Especially since I can't take Vitamin D pills.
