June is National Dairy Month, and what better place to celebrate than the Dairy State, Wisconsin. Dairy production—and consumption—is huge in Wisconsin so celebrating Dairy Month is no problem.
Dairy products are packed with nutrients such as calcium, protein, vitamin D, and others that are important in an active person’s life. While some nutrition-conscious individuals may shy away from dairy products due to their high fat content, low-fat alternatives can be consumed in place of their fatty counterparts. Skim milk, low-fat cottage cheese or yogurt and more still provide nutrients while minimizing your fat intake.
Your heart will not only fall in love with dairy products, but will also thank you for eating them. Dairy products can help to lower bad cholesterol levels while increasing levels of good cholesterol. Dairy products can also reduce high blood pressure. And of course everyone knows that dairy products help build strong bones, which allows you to stay health and active late in life.
Overall, eating dairy can be very beneficial for your body, unless you are lactose intolerant. Dairy products can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle, which then decreases your chances of needing to file a Wisconsin health insurance claim.
Reward yourself with a treat tonight and celebrate National Dairy Month by enjoying some ice cream or frozen yogurt!
