Yogurt is an ancient wonder food, strongly antibacterial and anti-cancer.

Just from “NEXT CASH AND CARRY SHOPPING MALL” to get myself a big bottle of yogurt. Yogurt is so ideal for this hot weather and is packed with so much benefits. Everyone should try and take yogurt every once in a while if not daily. Yogurt is extremely very good. Say “YES” to yogurt! Yogurt is good for the skin, good for the health, what can’t this dairy product do? Yogurt is loaded with so many benefits and I want to let you know some of them. GOOD FOR THE SKIN ESPECIALLY THE FACE: You don’t need to have thousands of Naira before you can take good care of your skin. Yogurt does it for you. It ontains lactic acid, which is a component in some in-office chemical peels. It mildly exfoliates the top layers of the epidermis, which clears up blemishes and discolourations, and can even reduce fine wrinkles. YOGURT IS EASIER TO DIGEST THAN MILK:
Most people who cannot tolerate milk, either because of a protein allergy or lactose intolerance, can enjoy yogurt. The culturing process makes yogurt more digestible than milk. The culturing process has already broken down the milk sugar lactose into glucose and galactose, two sugars that are easily absorbed by lactose-intolerant persons. YOGURT CONTRIBUTES TO COLON HEALTH: When eating yogurt, you care for your colon in two ways. First, yogurt contains lactobacteria, intestines-friendly bacterial cultures that foster a healthy colon, and even lower the risk of colon cancer. Lactobacteria, especially acidophilus, promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon and reduces the conversion of bile into carcinogenic bile acids. The more of these intestines-friendly bacteria that are present in your colon, the lower the chance of colon diseases. Basically, the friendly bacteria in yogurt seems to deactivate harmful substances (such as nitrates and nitrites before they are converted to nitrosamines) before they can become carcinogenic.
Secondly, yogurt is a rich source of calcium – a mineral that contributes to colon health and decreases the risk of colon cancer. Calcium discourages excess growth of the cells lining the colon, which can place a person at high risk for colon cancer. Calcium also binds cancer-producing bile acids and keeps them from irritating the colon wall. People that have diets high in calcium (e.g. Scandinavian countries) have lower rates of colorectal cancer. One study showed that an average intake of 1,200 milligrams of calcium a day is associated with a 75 percent reduction of colorectal cancer. YOGURT CAN BOOST IMMUNITY: Researchers who studied 68 people who ate two cups of live-culture yogurt daily for three months found that these persons produced higher levels of immunity boosting interferon. The bacterial cultures in yogurt have also been shown to stimulate infection-fighting white cells in the bloodstream. Some studies have shown yogurt cultures to contain a factor that has anti-tumor effects in experimental animals. YOGURT CAN LOWER CHOLESTEROL:
There are a few studies that have shown that yogurt can reduce the blood cholesterol. This may be because the live cultures in yogurt can assimilate the cholesterol or because yogurt binds bile acids, (which has also been shown to lower cholesterol), or both. YOGURT IS AN EXCELLENT SOURCE OF PROTEIN:
Plain yogurt contains around ten to fourteen grams of protein per eight ounces, which amounts to twenty percent of the daily protein requirement for most persons. In fact, eight ounces of yogurt that contains live and active cultures, contains 20 percent more protein than the same volume of milk (10 grams versus 8 grams). Besides being a rich source of proteins, the culturing of the milk proteins during fermentation makes these proteins easier to digest. For this reason, the proteins in yogurt are often called “predigested.”. YOGURT CAN DECREASE YEAST INFECTION:
Research has shown that eating eight ounces of yogurt that contains live and active cultures daily reduces the amount of yeast colonies in the vagina and decreases the incidence of vaginal yeast infections.
These are some of the benefits of yogurt. Yogurt is an ancient wonder food, strongly antibacterial and anti-cancer. A cup or two of yogurt a day boosts immune functioning by stimulating production of gamma interferon. Also spurs activity of natural killer cells that attack viruses and tumors. A daily cup of yogurt reduced colds and other upper respiratory infections in humans. Helps prevent and cure diarrhea. A daily cup of yogurt with acidophilus cultures prevents vaginitis (yeast infections) in women. Full fat yogurt helps fight bone problems, such as osteoporosis, because of high available calcium content. Acidophilus yogurt cultures neutralize cancer-causing agents in the intestinal tract. I can go on and on. Always grab a bottle of well made yogurt when you can… HEALTH IS WEALTH!!! Be Enlightened! Be Inspired!! Be Motivated!!!
