According to a recent study, a type of chemical found in milk could help to combat a disorder that leads to a greater risk of diabetes and heart disease . Known as metabolic syndromen, the increasingly common disorder combines several diabetes risk factors, including high blood glucose and obesity .
A research team from the Victoria Department of Primary Industries and MG Nutritionals have found that one of the compounds present in milk helps mice build more muscle and want to exercise more.
The minister for innovation in the Victoria Government, Gavin Jennings, reportedly commented: “Results in mice so far have shown great promise highlighting once again the medicinal qualities of milk. This latest discovery builds on past work by the collaborating Victorian teams that have shown active proteins in milk can promote the health of the human digestive system.”
