OPINION: Immune system support and disease prevention are top of mind for Americans stuck at home during Covid lockdowns and in a cycle of inactivity – led by excess time in front of computer, smartphone and television screens. 

The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB) has partnered with researchers at the University of California at Davis (UC Davis) Food for Health Institute to help consumers better understand the impact of real milk on the body to help counter deterioration. 

Real milk, when consumed as part of a healthy eating pattern, has been scientifically proven to help protect bones and muscles, and is a natural source of immune-boosting nutrients like Vitamin A, Vitamin D and protein.

The nutrients in milk and dairy foods work together to produce unique health benefits that are hard to reproduce.“

Just because a liquid is white does not mean it is nutritionally similar to real milk,” states Dr. Bruce German, Director of the UC Davis Food for Health Institute.
