Optimum Health Ultimate Milk

Optimum Health provides a cost effective range of products based on cutting edge nutrition. They promote general health, vitality and wellbeing, and Optimum Health Ultimate Milk is no exception!

Milk is one of the densest sources of nutrition available to man, and the fact that it is the only source of nutrition available to humans and mammals immediately after birth, is testament to its nutritional supremacy! Milk is the staple of many people’s diets, it has numerous health promoting properties including Protein, Carbohydrate (lactose) and some key vitamins and essential Fatty acids. However, it also contains saturated Fat which is widely accepted to be detrimental to health. For those people that wish to maximise the health promoting properties of milk, whilst limiting their intake of Fat and Carbohydrate, Optimum Health Ultimate Milk is just what you need!

Optimum Health Ultimate Milk concentrates the nutritional goodness of milk, delivering higher levels of whey, micellar casein Protein and glutamine. All of this in a convenient shake….minus the lactose and Fat. Evidence suggests that a high Protein diet indirectly provides sustained energy as it slows down the release of glucose from carbohydrates. Protein also helps to satisfy hunger, making it an ideal, low calorie mid-meal snack!

Lactose intolerance affects approx 5% of the UK population, whilst lactose sensitivity affects around 70% of us resulting in bloating, discomfort, gas and digestive problems. It can also cause malabsorption which can potentially lead to nutritional deficiencies, making the delactosed milk in Optimum Health Ultimate Milk a welcome (and unique) element of this highly nutritious and great tasting health supplement.

Whey and casein Protein is integral to the health and longevity of your muscle, heart tissue, brain and many more components of your body. Optimum Health Ultimate Milk contains 21g (per 200ml serving) of muscle replenishing and Fat busting Protein per 200ml serving, and only 1g of Fat. To get this level of Protein from ordinary semi-skimmed milk, you would need to consume approx 800ml per day of the stuff, but with this you’d also be getting a whopping 14g of Fat too!

Optimum Health Ultimate Milk is milk, but with a little bit more clout!

    I usually drink 2 ltrs. Of. Skimmed milk a day
    That's 72gms. Protein cost 98p. Guess I'm lucky I can handle a bit of lactose

  • Food industry applications, both of pure lactose and lactose-containing dairy by-products, have markedly increased since the 1960s. For example, its bland flavor has lent to its use as a carrier and stabiliser of aromas and pharmaceutical products. Lactose is not added directly to many foods, because it is not sweet and its solubility is less than other sugars commonly used in food. Infant formula is a notable exception, where the addition of lactose is necessary to match the composition of human milk.
