Yoghurt - A Nutritional Goldmine

Yes, the yoghurt is very much a goldmine. Research proves that yoghurt is not merely a food accompaniment, a dessert or just a diet food. It is packed with microscopic warriors- beneficial bacteria that are a must for good health. This convenient food is easily available anywhere, is a snack that tastes great and it is low in calories.

The benefit of yoghurt goes beyond its nutritional value and low calorie appeal. According to an article in the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" (2000), yoghurt helps make the immune system more resilient. Yoghurt kills the harmful bacteria dominating the intestine. Doctors often recommend yoghurt to patients recovering from diarrhea, and to help ease other ailments of the intestinal tract.

Women stand to benefit immensely from yoghurt. It is found that yoghurt consumption decreased vaginal infections three fold. In fact, yoghurt provides an excellent source of easily absorbed calcium. However the fruited varieties of yoghurt can be quite high in calories. If you want to fruit flavor but are not willing to sacrifice the calcium or add the calories then mix your own chopped fruit into a container of yoghurt. And always keep it cold, as the helpful bacteria in yoghurt cannot withstand high temperatures.

  • Low in calories

  • Excellent source of calcium

  • Helps to improve complexion, making it clearer and more radiant

  • Helps maintain a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria

  • Increased consumption may lead to increased resistance to immune-related diseases.
