August 4, 2015 (FPRC) -- Yogurt is one of the healthiest foods one can eat. It contains some of the same healthy organisms that are found naturally in the body and it increases them – crowding out the less healthy organisms and even disease.
Known as “probiotics”, these healthy bacteria in the intestine are “pro” or beneficial to the health of the body. Studies are showing probiotics can improve digestion, reduce diabetes, support weight loss, reduce cholesterol, boost the immune system and relieve allergies.
One study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that consuming yogurt or the beneficial bacteria from it, has promising health benefits for many conditions. Some of these include relief from constipation, diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, stomach bacteria infections and allergies.
A study on yogurt was published in the journal called “Archives of Osteoporosis”. It reviewed the ability of yogurt to strengthen bones and found that milk and yogurt are the best dairy choices for increasing bone mineral density in the hip.
The benefits of yogurt include assisting weight loss. A healthy supplement similar to the acidophilus used in yogurt was recently found in a Canadian study to help overweight women lose weight and keep it off. It was discovered that the supplement made the intestinal wall stronger and more able to prevent inflammatory, obesity-causing substances from passing into the intestine and entering the bloodstream.
The Journal of Nutrition published a study on yogurt that found the people who consumed yogurt, especially those that used the live-culture form, had a decrease in allergic symptoms. In addition, those not eating yogurt experienced an increase in cholesterol during the study, while those in the yogurt group remained stable during the course of the year.
The benefits of yogurt are best gotten from the plain, unsweetened kind or from capsules containing acidophilus or other beneficial organisms. Use it instead of sour cream or mayonnaise. It can also be featured on top of baked potatoes, in salad dressings, dips, smoothies and other foods.
