Milk Consumption In Adults
You may be shocked to learn how many adults no longer drink milk (flat out); furthermore, how many children are not offered milk every day. If you are not drinking milk, then what are you drinking to fuel your body for vital health? Soda? Supplemented products? Highly processed dairy-alternative products? In this blog, we are not just tackling the WHY, but the topic of HOW MUCH an adult should be drinkings (per day) to have improved gut health.
By now, we all have heard the many reasons why Americans have chosen to purchase alternatives or stop drinking milk (of all kinds). Ultimately, our country has noticed a shocking direct result and rise in gut and digestion disorders (at an alarming rate) as a result from this shift in buying behavior, but all is not lost.
Over the past two (2) decades, our family owned brand has been selling organic, raw dairy products to millions of consumers in California in over 500 store and farmers market locations. These consumers have been thriving and experiencing wonderful results. So, how much raw milk should an adult be consuming?
How Much Raw Milk Should An Adult Consume?

Raw cheese as a high-calcium density (one (1) ounce of raw cheddar cheese has equal values to seven (7) ounces of Whole Raw Milk.
