Consuming Goat Milk For People With Hypertension?
Hello. Is goat milk good for people with hypertension?
Hello Nurul, thank you for asking.
Goat milk is a good source of calcium and phosphorus for bone health. In addition, the content of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals, is also high, so it is good to meet nutritional needs. There is no harm in consuming goat milk for people with hypertension. But the thing to note is that the saturated fat content in goat milk is quite high. Limit consumption of goat milk around 400-500 ml per day. Consumption of too much saturated fat can increase levels of triglycerides, LDL, which can cause plaque that clogs blood vessels. This certainly can worsen hypertension.
Therefore, please consume goat milk in an appropriate amount. In addition, balance with physical activity and fibrous foods such as vegetables and fruit.
Hopefully this answer is helpful. Regards.
