Dairy products have the highest concentration per serving of absorbable calcium, and milk is also fortified with vitamin D, another star nutrient for bone health, researchers say. Not everyone is pro-milk with the increase of lactose-intolerance and the rise of alternative milks like soy, almond and hemp that promise more protein.
Milk is great in moderation
There’s even been some backlash against milk with studies suggesting that too much calcium might increase the risk of hip fractures. Earlier this year, Swedish scientists revealed a major study that found milk may not protect our bones, and consuming more than three glasses a day put study participants at a higher mortality risk, particularly from heart disease. The study tracked 60,000 women for 20 years and 45,000 men for 11 years.
Now nutritionists are debating how much milk is actually good for you.
To be safe, keep it to a glass a day and include other calcium-rich foods like broccoli and salmon in your diet.
When milk gets even better…
But what if I told you there was an even better milk coming to market? One that has 50 percent more protein and calcium, 30 percent less sugar than ordinary milk and no lactose that can cause digestive problems for some people. Does it sound too good to be true?
The world’s largest soft drinks maker, the Coca-Cola Company, has launched its new Fairlife milk in test markets in the United States. It’s a premium, enhanced milk made in partnership with Select Milk Producers dairy co-op, a collective of large dairy producers.
Fairlife is double the price of regular milk.
Economists say the dairy industry could use a boost – and so could Coca-Cola. Milk consumption and soft drink sales are slowing down. People are skipping breakfast or choosing cereal bars or fast-food breakfast sandwiches instead. In fact, statistics show that half of the U.S. population over age 18 doesn’t drink milk at all. Protein and energy drinks, teas, and non-dairy milk alternatives have made a significant dent in the milk market.
Coca-Cola, however, isn’t deterred by slowing milk sales. It’s being smart about taking advantage of the health beverage craze.
But who wants to buy wholesome milk from the king of soda, a carbonated artificial beverage tarnished by links to cancer, obesity and diabetes?
The Fairlife milk has no mention of Coca-Cola on the packaging, of course. The milk is branded as an all-natural enhanced milk from sustainable farmers. It’s sold in bottles that look like juice bottles, making it distinct from the regular milk bags and cartons. Clearly, there’s powerful marketing muscle behind everything the company does. (Coca-Cola has sponsored all 13 seasons of top TV reality show American Idol, so the company knows a thing or two about marketing.)
Coca-Cola courts health-conscious consumers
If Coca-Cola wants to diversify its offerings, at least it’s listening to more health-conscious consumers. The company launched its Simply brand of juice and juice drinks which grew 7 percent in North America last year, despite the decline in the overall fruit beverage segment.
Simply doesn’t have Coca-Cola on the label anywhere either. The brand is marketed as a healthier, all-natural juice with no added sugar or preservatives, giving it some real consumer appeal.
Coca-Cola has also jumped on the energy drink bandwagon by buying a 17 percent stake in Monster, and its new single-pod Honest Tea is coming soon for use in Keurig brewing machines.
Smart, right? Its main rival Pepsi, which owns Frito-Lay, is going the dairy route as well with its Muller yogurt in stores nationwide.
It’s not as though these companies are going to stop selling soda, just like McDonald’s is not about to drop the Big Mac from the menu, but they’re listening to consumers, trying to offer healthier alternatives.
Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy, right? However…
Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this true story…
Would you buy your weekly milk for double the price?
But you won’t find Fairlife in my fridge any time soon. Charging double the price for a diet essential makes it out of reach for the average consumer who can’t afford to buy expensive anything.
Coca-Cola has raised the bar on milk, turning it into an elitist superfood. Studies show that people with a wealthier socioeconomic background tend to be healthier overall than people living on a fixed income, like many seniors, who have the most health problems. It won’t be these seniors buying such an expensive milk as a diet staple – and the disparity between healthy people and the less fortunate will only continue to grow.
There will be super-milk and regular, run-of-the-mill milk which has less of the good stuff – less protein and calcium – and more of the sugar that we don’t necessarily need. People may decide to simply consume less milk (the regular, lower-grade stuff) and opt for soda instead!
I’m all for reviving the dairy industry and advocating a daily glass of milk for good health, but turning milk into a superfood for those who can afford it is not the way to go.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
