But which one should you pick organic Omega three fortified.
With vitamin C fortified which carton to grab.
-- -- Well Jamie it's it's.
It all depends on what you want to get out of this and exactly what kind of health issues you have -- -- you have high cholesterol not.
What do you need is vitamins are you taking these vitamins are not them based on that.
You can decide it's very confusing when you get in front of that milk any attention it's getting bigger it's getting more confusing my favorite one is really organic because it doesn't have any kind of growth hormones.
And -- -- but despite that the American diabetic association said there's really no difference between organic and in organic in any.
-- three fatty acid and some beta carotene from the organic what.
Now -- -- price difference absolutely right both so you have to be thinking about all of that did Alter pasteurized one is the one that if you want to keep your milk.
For much longer period.
The -- prepared to milk is different they're going to heated up to 280 -- is a 160.
So if you're the type that's going to keep him out for a month and that's the type that you more than sixty days of sixty days that's right so that's the one you wanna go to enough fortified.
Are the ones that they're really maybe they're vegetarians maybe they're not getting enough vitamin is being indicted they may need some B twelve or so did you -- me -- -- C.
That's that one you would use and ultimately.
-- lactose intolerance it's amazing how many different type of notes we have.
A lot of people can tolerate this kind of mail because they're lactose intolerance and that's what there was -- -- give -- up completely captaincy they just don't drink milk for one reason or another.

Panel drank a lot of milk.
Milk is on the decrees were drinking less of it -- now we have to reexamine do we need the vitamin.
What kind of -- do we action -- well organic Wilkes.
You know that David was mentioning one of these studies which showed that despite the fact that we're feeding growth hormone to the catalyst.
That are non organic milk it's not clear that it's getting into the milk how much of it is getting into the -- But I feel safer saying that organic milk has less to these additives.
Less of these impurities and also one study out of New -- showed that it's higher in unsaturated fats the good kind the Omega threes we've been talking about.
I think there's an advantage or -- two organic milk it's more expensive.
The other point is what -- what's good for one person is not necessarily good for another some people like coconut milk.
Coconut milk very kind in fat but but it's also got less cholesterol what about soy.
Soy hello all over the -- I think so -- great by the way but -- is a flavor think some people don't like the taste of sort prisoners and after things but yet it's got a lot of good and dioxin.
-- you have to be careful -- -- -- because it has a lot of unsaturated -- possession of taste better but what a lot of sugar right but I think the point mark brought up about coconut milk which is something that I learned and I wasn't aware of this.
Is effectively can increase your HDL.
-- your good cholesterol which I was quite surprised so let's say you're not getting enough exercise and you need to increase your good cholesterol coconut milk is a one.
That you can use it strange how I -- -- has very caloric moderation always.
As you can hit it it is not has -- -- calories and some of the others one more wanna make sure we get in there is the lactose free.
Because a lot of people in my practice have a problem with lactose and the lactose free milk is for them and they may not know what they may come in the -- -- they say look I have this diarrhea.
I'm not sure this is coming from it may be part.
Of an irritable bowel syndrome may not be the whole story but I always try them on lactose free -- -- -- It may not even be a real true allergy but it could be intolerant we talked about gluten -- some of these symptoms they actually overlaps -- you really want to make sure.
You take this -- earned their way and make sure that you keep the milk away from them and see what they do.
But dobbs has a tremendous I mean you know that's good and I would doctor cited.
