This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
Something I used to love as a child was drinking a nice big cold glass of milk, while eating a piping hot chocolate chip cookie that my mother made me. But since turning the big 40 last year, my body has become more sensitive to dairy products. So I thought my milk drinking days were over!
However, a2 Milk® changed that! Now I am allowed me to drink milk again. Boy, did I miss it! I was not a huge fan of being lactose intolerant, so I figured I’d give a2 Milk® a try. With a2 Milk® I feel as though I have a favorite part of my childhood back. In fact, I like the milk so much that I became a2 Milk® Ambassador!
You may not know this, but a lot of times people are sensitive to regular milk because of the A1 protein in regular cow’s milk. a2 Milk® is different – it only comes from heirloom a2 cows. a2 cows naturally produce milk free from the A1 protein, the one that may cause dairy digestive discomfort. a2 Milk Company ™ also recently partnered with U.S. family dairy farmers in upstate New York and the Midwest to expand the heirloom a2 herd ever more. Their product is in great demand among us belly sensitive folks!
I’m not alone in my discomfort with regular milk. An independent study has shown that at least 1 in 4 Americans has discomfort of some sort after drinking regular milk. So, if you have dealt with tummy troubles, a2 Milk® may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Not only do I find it delicious, but a2 Milk® contains approximately 6x the amount of calcium as soy beverages, approximately 8x the protein of almond beverages and approximately 6x the potassium levels of rice beverages. The days of compromising taste and nutrition with inferior nut- or bean-based beverages – or worst yet, cutting out milk all together are gone – thanks to a2 Milk®!
