Win a Month supply of a2 milk

Milk is an important part of our diet.  It has a balance of protein, carbohydrates, water and micro nutrients.  It is essential for growing kids and for grown ups, particularly women who are more vulnerable to bone-weakening osteoporosis.  Milk is also a great way to help kids maintain energy and focus whilst at school. 

For some people though drinking milk leads to digestive problems such as bloating, indigestion or feeling uncomfortable.  a2 milk contains the same calcium and lactose levels as standard milk but it doesn't contain the A1 protein.  

Milk contains two different proteins A1 and A2.  Before domestication all cows produced milk containing only the A2 protein, domestication introduced the A1 protein.  These two proteins are digested differently from each other and the A1 protein can result in the discomfort after drinking milk which can be mistake for Lactose intolerance.

The only difference between a2 milk and milk, is that a2 milk does not contain the A1 protein.  a2 milk have a 2 week challenge on their milk.  Try a2 milk for two weeks and tell them if you felt the difference, share your story on their facebook page.  All stories shared on Facebook could win a month's supply of a2 milk plus a ticket to the BIG festival.

a2 milk is suitable for those who have never had any issues with milk and those who have not been medically diagnosed with galactosaemia or who have not got a milk protein intolerance or people who have not been diagnosed with a lactose intolerance.  Those people who might be substituting for soya or rice milk because they just cannot stomach diary products, although never formally diagnosed.

We have been giving a2 milk a try for the past 2 weeks.  I calculated that we use over 20 pints of milk a week.  The girls in particular love their milk.  Some eczema can be triggered by milk and with my daughter suffering from eczema I was interested to see if cutting out milk containing the A1 protein would make a difference to her.  After 2 weeks we haven't yet had a flair up so things appear to be heading in the right direction.  

I am pleased to be teaming with a2 milk and be able to offer 1 reader the chance to win a month's supply of a2 milk [this is in the form of vouchers].  Entry is simple and via the Rafflecopter below.  Giveaway closes on 11th September 2014 at midnight GMT.  Entry is open to all UK residents aged 18 and over.  For full T&C please see link on Rafflecopter.
