ABC Wednesday - Y is for....Yogurt

It’s ABC Wednesday once again. The rounds is almost finish ha ha.

Y….is for Yogurt

I love yogurt. Good old yogurt has been touted as one of the healthiest foods around. It is a low-fat and low-lactose source of calcium, plus it also contains friendly bacteria that promote good health. This excellent food item is a powerful food because of the addition of probiotic strains or live microorganisms needed to ferment the product.

Probiotics offer the following benefits:
• may help strengthen the immune system
• fight harmful bacteria
• enhance our natural digestive health because they are observed to aid in digestion and absorption of some nutrients
• reduce risk of intestinal infections
• may be beneficial to lactose intolerant individuals as probiotics may provide some enzymes in the digestion of lactose
For better health for the whole family, each member must make it a habit to eat a serving of yogurt every day. Yogurt is great as a breakfast item, snack food, or even dessert!
