The Calcium Conundrum

Remove:        Pasteurized Milk

Replace With: Organic Coconut Milk, Organic Almond Milk, Organic Kefir, Raw Milk and cheese, (while it is illegal to sell raw milk in supermarkets in most States, it can be purchased from licensed dairy farmers).

Here’s Why: Briefly, when milk is pasteurized it is heated to extremely high temperatures to kill off any harmful bacteria.  Sounds good, but what they don’t tell you is that it also kills off all the living enzymes, nutrients, and probiotics in milk.  What’s worse, most people purchase low fat and skim milks which have their natural fats removed.  Consider the fact that dairy products are a macronutrient called FAT.  If you remove the fat out of dairy, you know longer get that macronutrient and now your dairy product can’t even be considered a food category (fat, protein, or carb).  What your basically left with is mucus forming sugar water.

If you’re wondering how you’re going to get your calcium intake without drinking milk, consider the fact that we’ve been  drinking milk for years now, and yet we have a bigger calcium deficiency than ever before. We get plenty of calcium from sources other than dairy.
