This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
I recently shared the news about my partnership with The a2 Milk Company™ and why I was so excited for the opportunity to be an a2 Milk® Ambassador. If you aren’t familiar yet with a2 Milk®, lean in, because you’re going to want to hear all about it! Also, I’ll let you in on how you can try a2 Milk® for FREE! Like so many others I know, I spent years as a self-diagnosed lactose-intolerant person because every time I’d drink milk, I’d have “tummy issues” afterwards. From early childhood, I was a milk lover and grew up drinking it every day. When I had to stop, it was truly heartbreaking for me. After reading an independent study that showed 25% of Americans have discomfort after drinking milk, I realized I wasn’t alone. (that’s a lot of people!) That same study also showed that only 5-7% of the population has been clinically diagnosed with a lactose intolerance medical condition though.
So why does this happen to so many people when they drink milk?
The “Post-Dairy Digestive Discomfort” is due to the A1 protein which is currently present in all conventional & organic milks on the U.S. Market. The a2 Milk Company™ has partnered with U.S. family dairy farmers in upstate New York and the Midwest to expand the specially selected a2 herd. a2 cows naturally produce milk free from the A1 protein. a2 Milk® only comes from these specially selected cows, ‘the way mother nature intended.’
It’s now been a couple of months since my family and I began enjoying a2 Milk® in our home. I am so happy that I have the option to have milk again in my cereal, with toast, and in my morning coffee. As a mom, I am very concerned about what I serve my family, especially what my daughter is putting into her body. a2 Milk® is something I know won’t affect her in a negative way and I’m grateful for the option. Right now, you can try out a2 Milk® yourself for FREE through a receipt-redemption offer..
