Regardless of our age, we always need a good supply of calcium to preserve the structure and texture of our bones. Be aware that all products processed from milk are an essential source of calcium. It suffices for example to take 2 pots of yogurt to supply the body with calcium. Indeed, it is the amount necessary to provide his body with the 30% of calcium it needs. The rest will be taken from the other foods you eat.

Despite this, just under half of the French neglect this rule. This trend is even more alarming in Morocco, the Sudans and other countries. On the other hand, in Sweden, Finland and Holland, the consumption of milk reaches a fairly satisfactory level.

2. Because some dairy products digest very well

You may be reluctant to include dairy in your diet because of your lactose intolerance; your reaction is completely normal. Moreover, in this case, it is advisable to have medical opinions before being able to integrate the milk again in its diet.

However, some dairy products, such as yogurt, are low in lactose. More specifically, the good bacteria found in yogurt help digest milk sugar (lactose). But for this to happen, you have to take a yogurt with a total of ferments of 100 million per gram.
