According to experts, milk should be drunk every day to meet the nutritional deficiencies in the body. However, it is better to drink milk at any time, there are different opinions about it. Some say that milk can be drunk at any time as required, while others say that it is noon or night.
So to clear up this confusion, Ayurvedic medicine is mentioning that night is the right time to drink milk.
According to Ayurveda, it is better not to drink milk in the morning. Especially those over the age of five should avoid drinking milk in the morning. Because, if you drink milk in the morning, digestion problems may occur.
But digestion problems are less at night and the ingredient tryptophan in milk helps to get a good night’s sleep and improve memory.
Experts also say that if you want to build your body and muscles, you can drink hot milk in the morning or in the afternoon after exercising.
