another dairy issue

5 posts in this topic

it is believed by many people on this site that dairy affects their acne to some degree. i tend to agree with this, but cutting out dairy to try and improve acne presents a few problems, a new one i have considered, is that cheese is a decent source of vitamin k2, and by reducing cheese intake, you will reduce a good source of vitamin k2. some older issues with cutting out dairy i have posted about before are b12 and of calcium. dairy is a decent source of b12, and from my experience it is the best source of calcium, ive compared it to all forms of calcium, the only one i like that is comparable to milk is calcium phosphate.

i believe the best choice is to stop drinking milk and choose cheese as a source of calcium for the reason that there is little lactose in cheese, which makes it easily digestable.

Fermented foods like Natto, kim chi, sauerkraut

chicken livers, organ meats, grass fed butter etc.

There are plenty of food options for K2 if people want to avoid dairy or the more reactive forms.

Hey, I notice you're well-equipped with knowledge in the dairy department. It's always been interesting for me to read, and I appreciate the studies and research you provide.

I'm hoping to get my hands on some grass-fed butter. I'd imagine you of all people would support it, right?

Our intestinal flora produces Vitamin K2. If anything, you should consider taking a probiotic over eating dairy. It's also found in eggs and organ meats. What's your point?

You really need to get off that dairy bandwagon and realize dairy is not essential to human life or health.

Milk and cheese are not good sources of calcium.
