By Shatavisha Chakravorty

Since early childhood, all of us have been taught that consumption of milk is something that we must do. The high calcium content of the same is something all of us are pretty familiar with. Thus, this is all the way more important for children in their growing up years and for adults (particularly women) over the age of 50.

In addition to the role that it plays in the physical and mental growth of an individual, another important aspect of raw milk that we often ignore is its beauty benefits.
