Here is Why You Should Never Drink Milk In The Morning

Personally, I don't think there is a best or worst time to drink milk because the drink itself is packed with lots of nutrients which you will need if you want your day to go smoothly. 

But there are some things to consider before I, Paul Samuel FitnessDoctor can say you should never drink milk in the morning. 

Milk is packed with calcium, protein, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, Vitamin B2 and Vitamin B12, as well as Vitamin D if it is fortified milk. All these nutrients make it a great addition to your diet and give you a hint why babies survive on breast milk and no other meal in their first months. 

But as it turns out, these nutrients can benefit you differently depending on the time you take the calcium-rich drink. 

Starting your day off with a bowl of cereal with milk poured over, or chugging down a milk based drink (like Tea and Bread which most Nigerians love) might seem like a good idea since you need a full package of nutrients to start your day, but here is the downside, your milk based drink/meal in the morning can be a little heavy to digest. 

Although, a lot of bread and tea normally keeps me full throughout the day (I mean it), it might not be the same for you, because mine comes with a lot of physical activity like exercises and work.

So unless followed by lots of physical activity, it is a no for a milk based drink/breakfast in the morning (gives you one more reason to exercise right?).

But that does not mean you can't incorporate a little milk in your breakfast. Although milk lovers like me tend to add more than just amount, your favorite health blogger tends to work it out with regular physical activity. 

So when is the best time to drink milk?

Same way you take coffee and any other caffeinated drink to keep you awake at night, taking milk at night will help you fall asleep.

Several nutrients like magnesium, tryptophan, and calcium help you fall asleep faster and also fight insomnia. 

According to health experts

"These nutrients help the body with creating serotonin and melatonin, two neurotransmitters that help the body manage its sleeping and waking cycle. You could have your cup of warm milk about half an hour before you turn in for the night."

So there you have it, while caffeine increases wakefulness, attentiveness, and your ability to focus, milk helps your doze off in the night.
