5 Delicious Reasons You Should be Eating More Yogurt
Maybe you already love yogurt or maybe you’re one of the many who isn’t quite sure they should be indulging in the creamy dairy concoction. Whatever your stance is, there are many benefits and delicious reasons you should partake in eating yogurt more often. Here are a few of advantages to getting a daily dose of yogurt and why you should consider adding it into your daily routine.
Rich in Protein
Protein is a very vital key nutrient to helping build muscles and lose weight when you’re trying to shed a few pounds. It helps to make you feel full and regulate your appetite as well. Greek yogurt is especially high in protein, but all styles of yogurt offer some level of this important aspect of your diet.
Helps Your Digestive System
Some brands and varieties of yogurt actually help your digestive system to function properly instead of having an upset stomach. Yogurt has been proven to help introduce healthy bacteria to your digestive system so it can stay balanced. Some of the yogurt bacteria varieties have been shown to actually reduce the symptoms of IBS in those dealing with the illness.
Immune System Boost
The latest research shows that the immune system is based largely in your gut area. This is just one more reason why it’s vital to make sure that your gut stays healthy and happy. Make sure to find a yogurt that contains probiotics to help balance your digestive system and give your immune system the boost it needs to fight off the germs that you may face. These good bacteria have actually shown that, in some cases, they help reduce inflammation, which is the root of many illnesses and health conditions.
Other Important Nutrients
Besides protein, there are many other critical nutrients your body needs that can be found in your cup of yogurt. Vital nutrients such as potassium, B vitamins, and magnesium can all be found in your morning dose of yogurt.
Helps with Weight Management
Due to the high protein levels in some varieties of yogurt, it is believed that yogurt can help with weight loss for those wanting to shed some pounds. The protein, as mentioned above, helps with appetite control and keeps you feeling full longer. It also has calcium which works together with the protein to manage your appetite.
