The Joys of Organic Yoghurt
Yoghurt is just one of the best foods on the planet, not to mention one of the most versatile! You can add yoghurt into cake, curry, fruit salad, or even marinades, and the tangy creaminess of the delicious dairy makes for a darn tasty breakfast!
Did you know that yoghurt is made with a certain type of bacteria that your body needs? The bacteria is necessary for your digestive system, which is filled with other bacteria responsible for breaking down the food you eat. When you have that bowl of yoghurt, you’re adding to the beneficial bacteria in your intestines – making it easier for your body to process your food.
For those interested in keeping their bones healthy, a bowl of yoghurt a day can do them a lot of good. We all know that yoghurt is loaded with calcium, which is necessary for bone health. However, remember that you need Vitamin D in order for your body to absorb the calcium, so you may need to take a Vitamin D supplement for that yoghurt to have the best effect.
A study in Spain proved that yoghurt was able to help reduce the risk of hypertension. The participants ate just 2 or 3 servings of yoghurt per day, and their risk of developing high blood pressure was 50% lower than those that didn’t.
Yoghurt is also good at keeping your private parts (ladies only) healthy. Candida yeast infections are the result of low bacteria levels, imbalanced pH levels, and a suppressed immune system. Yoghurt helps to restore a healthy pH level, and it infuses your body will healthy bacteria.
Yoghurt can be a great snack for you to eat while on a diet. A study done by the Seattle-based University of Washington involved a 200 calorie snack – yoghurt, peach juice, a yoghurt drink, and a peach-flavored dairy drink. Those that took the yoghurt reported feeling fuller – meaning yoghurt can help you to keep those hunger pangs at bay!
Yoghurt truly is a thing of wonder, and it’s a food that deserves its place on your menu every day!
