In The News
Researchers from Tohoku University found that exposure to high fat milk products increases the incidence of people suffering from depression. Physical and intestinal problems have long been associated with milk products as pasteurization removes the enzymes from milk necessary to adequately digest the product.
In this new study researchers investigated the difference between eating whole milk and low-fat dairy products on symptoms of depression, such as sadness, anxiety, exhaustion and hopelessness. The study used questionnaires to determine consumption of dairy products and symptoms of depression.
Without controlling for other confounding factors, they determined those who ate low-fat dairy products one to four times a week were less depressed than those who ate high fat dairy products.
Daily Health Tip
Dairy products may trigger gastrointestinal distress, acne and general feelings of malaise, even when you don’t think you are affected by an allergy to dairy products.
Do you need to make a change? Some individuals have a lactose intolerance as they don’t naturally have the enzyme necessary to metabolize protein molecules found in cow’s milk. You should switch to other milk products (if you choose to want milk) when you experience symptoms your body does not handle the product well.
After removing dairy products from your daily nutritional choices you may find that you lose weight more easily, have a more elevated mood, less acne and less gastrointestinal problems.
