Dairy Products - Inflammation Heaven
Wednesday, August 15th, 2012
We’ve been taught our whole lives that dairy is good for us and our bones, however almost all dairy is bad for our skin and inflammation. As we’ve already discussed, inflammation causes a whole host of problems for your skin and creates systemic problems throughout your whole body.
The problem with most dairy products (except for butter) is that the calcium buildup impairs your zinc absorption, therefore putting you at risk for being zinc deficient. In addition, milk and yogurt elevate your blood insulin and release a plethora of hormones into your body, worsening pore blockage.
If that weren’t enough, milk also stimulates excessive oil production through elevating blood androgens. The key here is to watch your dairy intake and consider alternatives for our normal high-dairy intake.
