Why You Should Eat More Yogurt

by Steve Gordon

There are those of us who eat yogurt because we like the way it tastes. There are also those of us who don’t eat yogurt because we hate the way it tastes.

Then there are the handful of people who dig yogurt regularly because they know that it comes with a whole host of healthy benefits.

Yogurt has been proven recently to be an excellent comrade in the battle against ready diseases, as well as knock out allergies, kill seasonal colds, and enhance our intestines. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

Kick back, grab a spoon, open a tub of yogurt and read on. You’ll feel so much better.

Yogurt Crushes Colds

Colds are pesky little things. In the wide gamut of illnesses, they’re the runts. The lowest common denominators. They’re like wasps that menacingly buzz around, stinging us just because they can, before heading off into the sunset. And like wasps, they appear every. single. fucking. year.

We hate them, you hate them, and yogurts hate them – which is why they’re doing something about them. Yogurts contain a bacteria strain which help to annihilate illness-causing viruses. Awesome.

Yogurt Get Your Bowels Moving

If you suffer from constipation, you could do a lot worse than eat a yogurt a day to help you poop more often. Studies have shown that 62% of constipation sufferers who ate a yogurt containing both L. acidophilus and B. lactis reported a significant improvement.
These bacteria basically trigger contractions in your intestines. Lovely stuff.

Yogurt Has The Potential To Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

You’ve surely heard of type 2 diabetes. It’’s a big, bad villain that we would all rather do without. Brand new, hot off the press research in the UK has shown that eating a yogurt each day significantly deceases your chance of developing type 2 diabetes. Apparently it’s something to do with all the vitamins and minerals they contain.

Yogurt Eases Gastrointestinal Distress

Yogurt doesn’t just ease one or two types of gastrointestinal distress – it eases eight.

Among these are the kings, diarrhoea and irritable bowel syndrome.

If you don’t have any gastrointestinal illnesses, eating yogurt regularly will help to prevent the chances of you developing them. The recommendation is that you opt for a yogurt that contains several live and active bacterias.

So, the next time you do your shopping, remember to stick on a few yogurts. You’ll thank us for it.
