Adult Milk – Super Premium Milk

Adult Milk from Nakazawa Foods

With the recent milk issues in China, a Japanese dairy company, Nakazawa Foods, has launched their own super-premium milk called “Adult Milk”. This milk is marketed towards stressed out adults who need need to have a good night’s sleep.

The Adult milk is said to have 3-4 times as much melatonin as ordinary milk. If you’re not familiar with melatonin, it’s a sleep aid that you can buy at your local supermarket. The milk is taken from cows once a week at the break of dawn, and bottled within 6 hours. Nakazawa Foods say cows discharge a lot of the hormone during the night. I guess that’s thier reason for charging almost 30 times what i normal bottle of milk costs. Adult Milk will run you about 5,000 yen a bottle ($49 dollars).

Worth it?

  1. I really don’t get how milk HELPS people sleep, when it should in fact hinder sleep, as it is a dairy product which are naturally hard to digest and would therefore keep one awake more.

    Then again, I have no idea how adult humans drink something designed by Nature to be for baby cows. Odd that humans are the only adult animals that not only continue to drink milk, but also drink the milk of another animal!

    Plus it’s full of fat, hormones, and steroids and forces countless dairy cows into a life of hell.

    Soy milk FTW.
