Best Time to Drink Milk - How and Why

Milk is often dubbed as a complete food in itself. This is because milk is perhaps amongst the only products that are filled with a rich set of nutrients and beneficial properties. Milk is said to be rich in proteins, minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium. It is also a rich source of essential vitamins such as Vitamin A, B1, B2, B12, and D. It is also considered to be one of the richest sources for proteins, fats and carbohydrates for a vegetarian. Thus, the leverage of this beverage over all others is moot owing to the nutrient-dense colossal properties.

When Can You Have Milk?


Due to these properties and much more milk occupies a standalone stature in Indian staple dietary contents. Although, a nutrient heavy beverage like milk is revered in the Ayurveda for its digestive properties too but to avail all the benefits it should be consumed at a proper time. According to the Ayurveda, Milk must always be consumed in the evening or the night.

However, the benefits of milk for building up your body are maximized in the morning.

Causes Heaviness in the morning

Milk is considered as dense and heavy, and so it becomes a bit difficult to digest in the morning. This is the reason that for many people consuming milk in the morning induces a feeling of heaviness and causes indigestion.

Causes Acidity in the morning

For many people having milk in the morning or along with salty food is the main reason for acidity and indigestion. In grave circumstances, this may result in nausea or flatulence too.

On the contrary, consuming milk in the evening or the night is very beneficial and therapeutic because –

Easily digested

In the night time, milk is better digested because the cycle of digestive enzymes is performing at their optimal levels.

Calcium Is Better Dissolved

Milk is packed with ample amounts of calcium, and because of the low activity levels in the night, calcium can be easily absorbed by the body. The nightly consumption of milk is beneficial for gaining appropriate body mass as there is minimum wear and tear of muscles in the night.

Aids in Relaxation

Having milk at the night time or in the evening provides nutrients to the brain. Since the body is in a state of rest and there is a minimal activity, all the nutrients are diverted to the brain. This helps to better the functioning of the brain and also helps in relaxation.

Better Sleep

Milk contains powerful digestive and sedative properties. Due to this, it is considered to be one of the most potent substances to induce better sleep.
What Is The Right Way To Drink Milk?

The right way to consume milk is by following the following tips:

1. Avoid Sitting

Having milk while sitting down causes impediments in the path of a dense fluid such as milk. This causes indigestions and even Gastro esophageal Reflux (GERD). The best way to have milk is while standing up in an upright position.

2. Avoid Concoctions With Banana And Other Fruits

Milk is an extremely nutrient heavy beverage. Similarly, bananas and other similar fruits too are considered to be quite wholesome and filling. Due to this, the concoctions such as smoothies and shakes must be avoided as they dilute the beneficial effects of both.

At the End

Ultimately, it is to be understood that milk is a beverage that is extremely beneficial for you. But, it is important to consider the importance of proper consumption routine and observe the same.
