The Incredible Health Benefits of Yogurt
This SUPERFOOD has been found to contain a lot of benefits to your body! Whether you’re trying to stay in shape, maintain a healthy figure, or just spoil your sweet tooth, it is the perfect food for you and your kid!
It contains the good bacteria your body needs
The probiotics found in yogurts are an essential part of having a healthy digestive system. They also have amazing effects on your skin! You can think of them as the friendly bacteria that you cannot survive without. In fact, some people are now taking probiotic supplements. But why pay a fortune on that when you can naturally find them in yogurts?
1. It can help give you the ABS of your dreams, mommies.
A research from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville showed that people who consumed yogurts along with cutting-back on fats and carbs lost MORE weight in their waist and stomach area than those who consumed the same diet without having yogurts along.
2. It lowers your stress levels
Oh, we’re sure mommies need that the most!
Consuming yogurts give your body A LOT of calcium. And calcium naturally sends signals to your body to pump out less cortisol. Cortisol is known as the stress hormone. So the more you consume yogurts the less stressed you’ll be.
3. Yogurt is the House of Vitamins!
The amounts of vitamins found in a cup of yogurt will leave you astonished! It is LOADED with calcium, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, iodine, and vitamin B5! Yogurt also contains B12, folate and MANY more vitamins. We think it’s about time you skip the artificial vitamins and go all natural!
4. Sugary yogurt or not, your teeth are SAFE!
What’s better than satisfying your sweet tooth with a fat-free dessert that unexpectedly PROTECTS your teeth? A study found that eating low-fat yogurt or a fruity-flavored one with sugar does NOT erode tooth enamel, the main cause of decay. In fact, the lactic acid in yogurt protects your gums.
5. A yogurt a day keeps the sneaky cold AWAY!
Consuming yogurt vigorously activates the T cells that are responsible for fighting infections! It also boosts the immunity. So old or young, we all need that in our diets. And the best part of it is that it is all found in an inexpensive, natural, and yummy product.
6. Yogurt will help you feel fuller
Snacking on yogurts is not only healthy but it helps you feel fuller and eat less! And even better if you team it up with some flax or chia seeds, it will contain a lot more vitamins and will fill your stomach up.
