        Drinking some milk properly every day can not only maintain the skin, but also have better health care effects for the health of various organs in the body. But in daily life, many people think that milk should not be drunk on an empty stomach, which not only wastes nutrients but also has a certain impact on the stomach. So, is it okay to drink milk on an empty stomach?
        1. Drinking milk on an empty stomach wastes nutrients?
        This statement has been circulating. The reason is that milk contains a lot of high-quality protein. If you drink it on an empty stomach, the protein in the milk will be forced to be converted into heat and consumed, which is a waste of nutrition.
        If you drink milk on an empty stomach, the fat and lactose in milk can provide energy without wasting protein.
        First of all, milk is not just protein, there are other nutrients, such as lactose and fat. When drinking milk on an empty stomach, the carbohydrates (lactose) in milk will be preferentially decomposed for energy. In addition, the fat in milk can also provide some energy, so protein is not the primary substance for energy supply, and it is not a waste.
Secondly, although the protein in milk is of high quality, its content is not much in terms of all the foods we eat every day, let alone a waste of this amount.
        The data shows that the protein content in milk is generally 2 to 4 g/100 mL. And our dietary guidelines recommend drinking a glass of milk (250 ml) a day, then you only get about 10 grams of protein through drinking milk, and we consume about 50-60 grams of protein every day, it is about 20% of the contribution, even if you lose a little, will not have a big impact. Moreover, even if these proteins in milk are consumed on an empty stomach, they will be absorbed and utilized by the human body and will not be thrown away, so why waste it! If drinking milk on an empty stomach wastes protein, what about eating meat on an empty stomach? What about eating rice on an empty stomach? These foods are also rich in protein!
Therefore, it is complete nonsense to say that drinking milk on an empty stomach wastes nutrition and protein. When it is too late to eat breakfast, drinking a glass of milk on an empty stomach can not only provide high-quality protein but also provide a little capacity, which is far better than eating nothing at all.
         2. Is it bad for the stomach to drink milk on an empty stomach?
        Whether drinking milk on an empty stomach is good for your stomach depends entirely on your physique and how you drink milk. People with normal digestive function, they can drink milk properly on an empty stomach, which will not affect the function of the stomach and will not induce some stomach diseases. For people with gastric diseases, milk contains more protein and calcium, which will cause certain irritation to the gastric mucosa. So if these people drink milk on an empty stomach, it will indeed cause a certain stimulation to the stomach.
Even in healthy people, if you drink a lot of milk on an empty stomach, or drink iced milk, it will irritate the stomach, so don't try it.
        In short, as long as you don't feel uncomfortable, you can drink milk on an empty stomach. Whether fasting or not, the nutrients in milk will be absorbed and utilized by us. And, for normal people, drinking milk is not bad for the gut, and may even be good.
