Yogurt And Its Health Benefits

Yogurt is widely known as a dairy product primarily produced by a bacterial fermentation of milk. It contains "probiotics", a good bacteria that helps digestion.

Yogurt also contains lots of nutrients that are proven beneficial to our body. People around the world especially in Turkey are consuming this delicious dairy product because of its high in protein, calcium and vitamin B complex. They are always including yogurt in their meals because this food has been originated in Turkey. I somehow remember when I was still working in a Turkish company in Dubai, they've always served yogurt during lunch time.

To know more about the health benefits of yogurt, the following information are of great help to add your knowledge on this yummy food.

  • Fights against infection and inflammation

I guess you have a typographical error up there sis. Dairy product instead of "diary product".

Yes, yogurt is very healthy and it plays a big part in every Turkish meal. I make plain yogurt every week. Hubby eats almost everything with yogurt. My daughter eats yogurt too. She likes berry yogurt and even plain yogurt.

The only yogurt brand I really like are the ones in the supermarket - Nestle brand - and the one from Pancake house - Gurtz(?). The rest taste a little bit sour to me :) I didn't know that it originated from Turkey. Now I know. :)

@ Mrs. K: Sorry for the error sis. Missed the spelling. I don't know how to make yogurt, I only know how to savour them. Hehehe... Post naman the recipe how to make one, sis. Request na ako. ^_^

@ Hangingbridge: The last time I bought Nestle yogurt was 2 weeks ago. I love nestle yogurt, especially with berries.

@ Peregrinator: What is White Hat sis? Is it the brand?

I can't emphasize enough the benefits of yogurt for us as we grow older into our senior years. The calcium in yogurt can help prevent osteoporosis. The bacteria in yogurt can help seniors with common digestive problems, as you mentioned, and when mixed with cereal, it can be one of the best sources of vitamin B12. A great reminder for all of us, but especially the elderly.

I haven't tried yogurt ever, don't know why =) But I am aware of the benefits we can get from it. Hubby have encouraged me to try the flavored one but I am too hard-headed.

Sis, just followed your blog. Hope you can visit mine. Thanks!

Chances are the calcium supplement you are taking now is a rock source of calcium. The label will say "calcium carbonate", which is nothing more than limestone. AlgaeCal Plus contains an organic, plant-sourced calcium form derived from a unique South American marine algae called Algas Calcareas™.

i've been drinking bird nest soup every night (i only get the homemade kind back at home). the only reason why i drink it is because it's supposed to be good for complexion.

i’ve been taking the store-bought kind online (e.g. http://www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm of famous branded only of course) which is directly mailed from Hong Kong. this would be at a more affordable price.
