Athena, Essential Milk Drink for Women

Hello Sweeties!

I really loved drinking milk growing up, but I grew older I made it a point to lessen my dairy  intake because I had the wrong assumption that it was fattening. Like most adults I thought that milk is no longer crucial for the body’s health after my teenage years.

Apparently I was wrong!

Milk, particularly low-fat varieties, as part of a well-balanced diet, boasts a variety of health benefits for adult , including providing high-quality protein for the body and even helping promote weight management.

Let me run down some of the benefits of milk.

Preventing Osteoporosis

Calcium is naturally found in milk, and it prevents osteoporosis or bone loss in middle and old age, and women and elderly according to studies are more prone to bone degradation.  An adult has a daily calcium requirement of 2 1/2 to 4 servings of milk daily.

Weight Management

The “Journal of the American College of Nutrition” released a review in 2005 noted that if you increase the dietary calcium intake results in lessening  body fat, and especially body weight and fat loss due to a calorie-restricted dietary regimen. Participants in the said study, are less likely to regain weight after a period of weight loss if they increased calcium intake levels.

Fighting Tooth Decay

Tooth decay can happen at any age, and drinking dairy products, like milk, protects against tooth decay. Drinking milk lessens oral acidity, one contributing factor for decay. Drinking milk also stimulates saliva flow, which is one of the mouth’s primary defenses against decay, as it carries essential nutrients — like the calcium found in milk — to the teeth.

This is the reason I am glad there is Athena Milk for Women.

How does Marian Rivera make Garantisadong Ginisarap dishes? 

Marian Rivera-Dantes is used to playing different characters: Primetime Queen, recording artist, brand ambassador, style icon, and philanthropist. But her favorite roles by far have been those behind the camera: as wife to Dingdong and mom to Baby Zia. As a modern homemaker, who manages her time between work and family, Marian has found comfort in cooking as one of the best ways to make her family feel loved and to improve her culinary skills. On her social media pages, the Kapuso actress has posted some of her own culinary creations that range from baby food for little Zia, stews, soups, and veggies. And on days when Marian is short on time, stir-fry dishes have become her go-to choices for easy, yummy meals.
