MILK: THE nutrients

1. Calcium

 Calcium supports the maintenance of normal bones and teeth - the perfect foundation for growing athletes. It is a must-have mineral for students who want to stay active and keep their bones healthy.


For healthy blood pressure many of us know to cut down on salt in the diet, but that’s only one part of the story. Potassium also plays an important role in maintaining  normal blood pressure.

3. vitamin b12

Vitamin B12 helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue and can contribute to normal physiological function – in other words, our emotions, behaviour and overall mental health. 

4. Riboflavin

This nutrient plays an important role in energy production, converting the food we eat into energy. It also helps reduce tiredness and fatigue and protects cells in our bodies from oxidative stress.

5. phosphorus

Phosphorus is the other bone friendly nutrient and is important for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth. In fact more than three quarters of the phosphorus in our body is in the skeleton.

6. iodine

Iodine is a nutrient we often don’t hear much about but its really important for supporting our cognitive function – that’s our ability to think, make decisions and solve problems.

7. Pantothenic Acid 

More commonly known as vitamin B5, this nutrient is involved in energy production in the body turning food into energy, along with supporting normal mental performance.

8. Protein 

Dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt are naturally rich in high quality protein, which supports the growth and maintenance of muscles. Ensuring a protein-rich diet is a key component for those engaging in regular exercise.
