Also enzymes and the hormones which are responsible for control of the metabolism. They are composed of the different proteins. value of the proteins in the diet is determined by the content of essential amino acids in the diet. The higher the proportion of the essential amino acids in the diet, the higher will be the quality of protein because proteins are made up of the amino units. The milk protein is 80 percent casein and 20 percent whey proteins. casein in turn consists of about around 42 percent, the whey proteins of about 46 percent of the essential amino acids. That is why that milk and dairy products are rich in the essential amino acids.
Lactose which is the milk sugar has very favorable properties. It improves the absorption of the calcium, the magnesium and some other minerals from intestines.

The Calcium ions stabilize the cell membranes, they serve the transmission of the impulses in the nervous system, the conversion of the stimulus in the muscle activity and the activation of the enzymes for the blood clotting. For the absorption of the calcium, vitamin D is needed but also lactic acid promotes absorption of calcium along with the Vitamin D.
