Buttermilk is the liquid left over when making butter from milk, thus the name. While it’s not exactly a health drink, buttermilk is still a better alternative than some other drinks on the market.

Buttermilk contains probiotic bacteria. Other cultured drinks and foods like kefir and yogurt also contain probiotics. This type of bacteria has been found to have many health benefits, including adding in digestion and helping with irritable bowel syndrome, according to the National Institutes of Health. Buttermilk also contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
