A protein called lactium, found in milk, is the latest soldier to help you in your battle against stress. This protein has a calming effect on the body, lowers blood pressure and reduces the cortisol levels. A glass of milk before going to bed induces sleep; and a sound sleep helps keep stress levels in check.
Chronic stress is linked to a range of conditions, including depression and heart disease. Scientists first began studying the stress-busting qualities of milk over 20 years ago, spurred on by the observation that babies become calm and settled after feeding on milk.
The Haelen® method treats milk with a gentle cold method rather than through intense heat through pasteurisation, meaning improved flavour and nutrition which is lost to traditional processing.
