There’s no doubt that yoghurt is one of the healthiest foods out there. It has been a part of the human diet for a very long time and for many good reasons. Different cultures around the world call it by varying names, however, the yoghurt that we know today is simply fermented milk that has been acidified with well-defined and viable bacteria.
So what are the benefits of eating yoghurt?
Health Benefits Of Yoghurt
1. Much Easier To Digest Than Milk
The good news is that if you have difficulty digesting dairy there may be some benefit to be gained in switching to yoghurt. It has all the goodness of milk and then some but you can eat it with less chance of it upsetting your stomach. Yoghurt contains enzymes such as beta-galactosidase, which helps in the process of lactose absorption in your stomach. Of course if you are diagnosed as lactose intolerant you will need to find a lactose free version, but fortunately these are available in most supermarkets nowadays.
2. Offers Better Colon Health

3. Enhances Immunity Inside Your Body
Immunity is an essential part of the protection process for any kind of living organism. Stronger immunity helps your body ward off illness and disease more easily. And since the human body is incredibly complex the process for delivering enhanced immunity is complex too, and well beyond the scope of this article. But you don't need necessarily need sophisticated methods in order to achieve a heightened immune system. A great way to boost your well being is to add yoghurt to your daily diet, creating a habit that will benefit you for a lifetime. It has been reported that adding yoghurt every day can help to boost the creation of white blood cells in your body, which are essential in the fight against pathogens.
4. Heals Intestinal Infections
It's all about gut flora - encouraging 'good bacteria' and banishing the 'bad' ones. Different types of food feed different types of bacteria so it's important to have a diet that causes the right types of bacteria to flourish in your gut. These help to digest food correctly, minimise gut infections, regulate the bowels and contribute to overall health and well being.
