HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS!
I’m so excited to be participating in the a2 Milk®* Ambassador Program! Why am I so excited? Because I haven’t had milk in over ten years! I would love to bring milk back in to my diet (real milk) for so many reasons and when I was asked to try a2 Milk® milk out and that it might be the end of my lactose issues I was all in!
An independent study showed 1 in 4 Americans have discomfort after drinking milk (ME AND MY HUBBY ARE TWO OF THEM) ; yet only 3-4% of the population has been clinically diagnosed with a lactose intolerance medical condition. All milk is NOT CREATED EQUAL! That probably is not news to you. I like other non dairy milks, but I miss drinking real milk and using it for cooking and for a good protein source. So I was excited to bring it back!
Ok what is a2 Milk®?
1. a2 Milk® is pure farm fresh milk! Those who have ‘self diagnosed’ with lactose intolerance issues or Post-Dairy Digestive Discomfort may enjoy our milk without any symptoms.
2. The A1 protein is the culprit behind ‘Post-Dairy Digestive Discomfort,’ and currently in all conventional & organic milks on the U.S. market. a2 Milk® only comes from heirloom a2 cows, ‘the way mother nature intended.’
3. a2 Milk® is the pure replacement to chemically processed alternatives. The days of compromising taste and nutrition with inferior nut- or bean-based beverages – or worst yet, cutting out milk all together – are gone!
4. The a2 Milk Company ™ has partnered with U.S. family dairy farmers in upstate New York and the Midwest to expand the heirloom a2 herd. a2 cows naturally produce milk free from the A1 protein.
Regular cows’ milk contains a mix of both A1 and A2 proteins. Yet, only a2 Milk®comes from cows selected to naturally produce only A2 protein and no A1 – and that makes all the difference.
Independently published research support that the A1 protein in ordinary cows’ milk might cause discomfort in some of us. If that’s you, a2 Milk® may help. But for the unique benefits of a2 Milk® to work it needs to be the real deal – true a2 Milk®, from cows that naturally produce only the A2 protein and none of the A1 – nothing added and nothing taken away.
Our family has added a2 Milk®, to our diets for about two weeks now and we have felt fine! No major discomforts and lots of good healthy protein without the fat added back in to our foods has made us one happy family!
a2 Milk® is available nationally at Sprouts, The Fresh Market, Whole Foods Mid-Atlantic, and throughout California Whole Foods, Ralph’s, Sprouts, Gelson’s and many more – Store Locator
*a2 Milk® is real, natural milk, and contains the same amount of lactose as ordinary cows’ milk, so it’s not an option for people who have been clinically diagnosed with lactose intolerance.
*a2 Milk® contains approximately 6x the amount of calcium as soy beverages, approximately 8x the protein of almond beverages and approximately 6x the potassium levels of rice beverages.
