Omega 3 fatty acids are essential nutrients for the human body, especially for preventing heart disease. Omega 3 reduces the chance of a heart attack or stroke by lowering blood pressure and reducing triglycerides in the bloodstream. Omega 3 can also be an effective anti-inflammatory, thus helping treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma, and could play an important role in infancy development. Guernsey milk is known to have three times more Omega 3 than other milk, providing an elevated level of this key nutrient.
Beta-carotene is a red-orange pigment that is typically found in plants, such as carrots, and it is the relatively high levels of this pigment that gives Guernsey milk its distinctive golden color. Beta-carotene is an antioxidant meaning it can strengthen the immune system and help lower the risk of developing cancer or heart disease. Just as important, our bodies convert beta-carotene into vitamin A, an essential vitamin that is beneficial for our eyesight, immune system, and proper function of organs such as our heart, lungs, and kidneys.
Proteins are the basic building blocks for our bodies, providing the structure necessary for the function and growth of all the body’s cells, tissues, and organs. Milk is widely known as an excellent source of protein, supplying our bodies with both fast-acting and slow-digesting proteins to give us both short and long-term benefits in every glass we drink. Milk plays a key role in muscle-building while providing protein to repair and maintain every other part of the body as well.
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones because, without it, our bodies cannot absorb the calcium and phosphorous that are needed to construct healthy bones. Not only is vitamin D necessary for bone development, but it can also improve the body’s muscle function, brain development, cancer-fighting abilities, and immune, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems.
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is an essential vitamin for our bodies and is especially important for the growth and repair of all its tissues. Vitamin C is also a strong antioxidant, meaning it boosts the body’s immune system and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases. This vitamin also reduces the risk of heart disease, increases iron absorption capabilities, and helps to protect memory in aging adults.
Calcium is widely known to be required for strong, healthy bones, but it is also necessary for the proper function of our heart, muscles, and nervous system. Milk is an excellent source of calcium for all ages, from developing new bone structure in infants to slowing the loss of bone strength in the elderly.
Butterfat is the natural fat that is found in milk. This complex fat in milk is good for one's health as it contains properties that protect the gut from many negative influences. Butterfat is also known to help with weight loss as it makes one feel fuller and when one feels full they won't turn to the foods full of sugar and carbohydrates.
