What Are The Benefits Of Almond Milk?
At Naturally Brand, we’re on a mission to raise awareness for plant-based milk by bringing you refreshing, tasty, nutrient-packed options that are derived straight from nature. Here are some of the biggest benefits of almond milk.
It Promotes a Healthy Weight
One cup of our almond milk contains just 70 calories. One cup of whole cow’s milk contains 146 calories. While the calorie difference may feel insignificant, it adds up over time. As we all know, the more calories we consume, the more we have to fight to keep excess pounds from creeping on.
It Promotes Bone Strength and Health
You may find this hard to believe, but our almond milk contains 50% more calcium than cow’s milk. Calcium works to keep your bones strong and healthy and fight off degenerative conditions like osteoporosis. It also helps to improve your immune function.
We’re committed to discovering ways to fuel your body naturally with the type of goodness that’s found only in nature. We harness the power of some of nature’s richest superfoods and deliver them to you and your family to enjoy.
Beautiful, Glowing Skin
Milk made from almonds contains 50% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin E, which plays a major role in your skin’s health. Vitamin E protects your skin against sun damage and has antioxidant properties that promote a healthy, youthful glow.
It Has Little Impact on Your Blood Sugar
Natural almond milk that’s free of any additives is naturally low in carbs, which means that it won’t increase your blood sugar levels significantly. Spiked blood sugar levels are connected with type 2 diabetes. Because this is a low glycemic index beverage, your body will use the carbs ad energy instead of storing the sugars as fat.
Increased Muscle Strength and Healing
Although almond milk contains only a gram or so of protein per serving, don’t let it fool you. This super-milk contains plenty of B vitamins like iron and riboflavin, both of which are linked to improved muscle growth and healing.
About 25% of the US population is lactose intolerant which means that they have a difficult time digesting the sugar found naturally in cow’s milk. There is no lactose in almond milk, therefore consumers won’t experience the digestive distress that traditional milk sometimes creates.
No Refrigeration is Required
Unlike most milk that needs to be cooled to a certain temperature to maintain its taste and freshness, milk from almonds is perfectly fine at room temperature. This makes this type of milk so convenient and easy. You can bring it along with you to work, on a camping trip, wherever you want without worry about spoiling.
Let’s face it, many people are turned off by the taste of cow’s milk. The faint farm/animal taste can be off-putting to some. If that’s you, then you’ll love that our almond milk has a light, crisp flavor that’s not at all similar to cow’s milk. It does, however, have the same consistency, so you can use it in the same methods that you would use dairy milk.
With so many wonderful benefits, it’s no surprise that almond milk is quickly becoming the world’s most sought after non-dairy milk alternative. Check out our full selection of almond milk flavors and choices today, including almond milk chocolate, and enjoy the great taste and good health.
