The nutritional value of milkshakes

Written by Angela Atkinson

1143365_pills_1Eating food of high nutritional value is pretty important as it supplies the body with the fuel or energy needed to work effectively and efficiently. The nutrition nourishes the body while at the same time ensuring that you are not prone to attacks by some health disorders. For this reason, it is essential that you are conscious about the food you consume and ingest.

Always try as much as you can to stick only to food that will help you stay fit. And when it comes to a drink that you can trust your health onto, milkshake should rank at number one. Unfortunately, most people do not realize the nutritional value provided by milkshakes and these are some of the mostly overlooked types of foods.

In most cases, people simply see the milkshake just as food that will keep you feeling refreshed and will thus only think about it during hot summers. However, after drinking milkshakes, you will realize that your body becomes sated almost immediately even when you don’t eat them with anything else. The reason for this is that the milkshake is able to provide the body with its daily nutritional requirements for certain food groups such as proteins, minerals, vitamins and carbohydrates.

Proteins in milkshakes

The main ingredient in the milkshake is obviously milk, which makes the drink very nutritious. If you are not sure about the nutritional value of milk, just ask yourself why a newborn baby is able to survive and develop healthily while drinking milk only. Additionally, regardless of how old or young you might be, expert nutritionists always recommend that you take a glass of milk on a daily basis as it aids in the development of the bones. Milk is also highly recommended for body builders as it contains proteins needed for block building. And lastly, the fat in the milkshake will help your body generate heat during cold weather.

Carbohydrate source

Besides milk, another key ingredient in the making of the milkshake is sugar that not only provides the body with energy but also promotes the good functioning of the brain. Milkshakes can also be prepared from fruits, which are a great source of dietary fiber, which aids in digestion, and vitamins. Most fruits such as mangoes and strawberries are known to be good sources of vitamin C that assists the body in combating diseases and boosts the immune system.

Source of fiber

The milkshake will also provide you with fiber, which is a vital nutrient that aids the digestive, cardiovascular and excretory systems. Most of the fibers found in milkshakes can also be obtained from most vegetables and fruits. Fiber is well known to help in digestion and helps in flushing out toxins from the body as well as unwanted fats which might clog the digestive tracts. With less fat, the body is assured of a smooth, healthier blood flow which makes the heart more stable and stronger.

For such reasons, you have a lot to get from a milkshake nutritionally, and it is more than just a simple refreshing drink.
