What is the Best time to Drink Milk, Morning or Night?


Starting your day off gulping down a glass of milk might seem like a quick and nutritious start to your day, but milk being heavy indigestion can leave you prone to stomach aches and heartburn as well. In accordance with Ayurveda, milk may be better saved for an end of day drink to help you wind down and crank up the sleep-inducing hormones in your body.

Benefits Of Drinking Milk In Morning
More protein in your morning breakfast
To build body muscles - Drink milk in early morning (best for body after 7 - 8 hours of empty stomach)
Drinking fat-free milk in the morning increase satiety, or a feeling of fullness

Benefits Of Drinking Milk In Night
Drinking a glass of warm milk before bed will help you calm your mind and sleep better
Dairy products are rich in the amino acid tryptophan, which helps in the production of the sleep-inducing brain chemicals, serotonin, and melatonin
Help reduce tiredness
Ayurveda emphasizes on drinking milk at night

Drawbacks Of Drinking Milk
Drinking milk in the night may be fattening for some.
Depending on what diet you are in (to increase your weight or lose weight) choose to drink or avoid milk in night
Milk before sleep can cause digestive issues for few.

Experts suggest drinking milk two times a day (morning and night). It may not be a general advice as drinking too much milk can cause many side effects. 

Take precaution to avoid excess milk. After the massive success of white revolution (increase in milk production) milk has become a commodity.

Constant marketing by dairy companies faces criticism all over the world on the propaganda of drinking milk 3 times a day.

Indians also intake milk as byproducts such as curd (yogurt, cheese, cookies)
