Research conducted by the Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences and the University of Newcastle has shown that organic milk has higher concentration of vitamins such as Vitamin A and Vitamin E than conventional milk. Since organic cows graze on fresh grass and clover, the milk they produce has about 50% higher Vitamin E and 75% higher beta carotene.
Vitamin E is useful for protecting your body cells from free radicals and thus delays ageing. It also reduces the incidence of various chronic diseases including heart diseases, diabetes and cataract. Normally a person requires 15 milligrams of Vitamin E in the form of alpha tocopherol. However, adults in the US consume only 8-12 milligrams daily, on an average. This deficiency in vitamin E consumption can be removed by drinking organic milk daily.
Beta carotene is converted by our body into Vitamin A. Vitamin A, also called retinol, is useful for strong eyesight, increasing resistance to infections, good skin, bone growth, tooth development, reproduction and gene expression.
