Hello Everyone, How are you? Hoping you are keeping fit as usual. Before i start today’s topic, Let’s first take our time to appreciate something that often goes unrecognized. You usually take time to acknowledge all the fortunate parts of your circumstances – your health, the food you eat, the freedoms you enjoy, that job that provides for you, and the people you love – I recommend taking some time to appreciate something that often goes unrecognized – that is “YOU”. Take some time today to appreciate yourself. Say to yourself.. I LOVE ME! lol
Now, let’s get into the real business on today’s topic: Yoghurt and its health benefits.
Yoghurt’s popularity is not really due to its creamy texture and yummy taste, it’s main claim to fame is its health benefits. Because Yoghurt is high in calcium (good for your bones), benefit your digestive system, help immunity and offer protection from certain infections.
Say YES to yoghurt! Yoghurt smooths skin, soothes the stomach, and even polishes candlesticks (lol). It can also help you lose weight and fend off a cold.
No need for pricey derm treatments to perfect your complexion. “Yoghurt contains lactic acid that gently exfoliates the top layers of the epidermis, which can clear up blemishes and discolorations, and may even reduce fine wrinkles.”
In fact, the health benefits of yoghurt are so impressive that many health-conscious people make it a daily habit. Let’s look at some major benefits below:

– Yoghurt can boost immunity. According to NBCnews.com, the extra bacteria, or probiotics, added to yoghurt have been shown to enhance immunity by producing more infection-fighting white blood cells or antibodies in the gut.
– Yoghurt may reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Special proteins in dairy regulate BP, and high levels of calcium, magnesium, and potassium contribute to the blood pressure-lowering effect.

Some yoghurt used to coat nibble foods such as raisins, nuts, and fruit bits is often so highly sugared that you’re really eating more sugar than yoghurt. Please ensure you buy the organic and pure type! Health is WEALTH!
