Dr Oz: Samantha Heller’s Milk Alternatives
Doctor Oz did a segment on three new miracle drinks for your health that are all different forms of milk, not the usual cow’s milk that most of us drink. We have all heard of Soy Milk, Rice Milk and Hazelnut Milk before, but what about Coconut Milk, Almond Milk and Hemp Milk? These alternatives to regular Cow’s Milk are packed with nutrients and special health benefits, and all of them cost under $5 each.
Dr Oz: Coconut Milk For Weight Loss
Dr Oz said that Coconut Milk helps you to lose weight, but only if you get the Coconut Milk that does not come in cans. Samantha Heller said that canned Coconut Milk has 550 calories and tons of fat, but it is mainly used for cooking and baking – not for drinking. Regular non-canned Coconut Milk has only 50 calories and 5 grams of fat, which is perfect to add to your coffee or to pour over a bowl of cereal. The fat found in Coconut Milk is actually a good kind of fat that is metabolized quickly, which is why some scientists believe that it may be a great tool for Weight Loss!
Dr Oz: Almond Milk For Healthy Skin
Dr Oz said that Almond Milk is great for your skin, because almonds are full of Vitamin E. One glass of Almond Milk gives you 1/2 of the Vitamin E that you need in a day. And Vitamin E is important because it protects your skin from sun damage, moisturizes your skin and gives you an anti-aging boost.
Dr Oz: Hemp Milk For Memory
Doctor Oz’s favorite alternative to Cow’s Milk is something called Hemp Milk which comes from Hemp Seeds. Samantha Heller said that Hemp Seeds are a cousin to pot and marijuana, but you cannot get high off of it. Hemp Milk will help you to feel energetic, but it also is great for your memory. Why? Because Hemp Milk is rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, which are great for your heart and your brain. Your brain is 2/3 fat, and the omega 3 fats help your brain’s neurons to communicate properly. Dr Oz said that he loves Hemp Milk on cereal and in his coffee because it is a wonderful source of Omega 3′s and it improves your cognitive function and memory.
