Talking about yummy stuff, yogurt is a superfood that provides almost every nutrient the human body needs. It is rich in calcium, protein, trace minerals such as potassium and magnesium, and B vitamins that can protect against heart disease.
Why Eat Yogurt
Yogurt with active cultures may also help gastrointestinal conditions such as lactose intolerance and constipation. Many yogurt products also contain probiotics, or good bacteria that can promote a healthy digestive tract and boost the immune system. And because yogurt is rich in calcium, it may help prevent osteoporosis, a disease that results in the weakening of bones.
Another thing to love about yogurt, especially low-fat yogurt, is that it may reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Yogurt truly is a superfood you can consume to have a long and healthy life.
Yogurt comes in different forms, from yogurt drinks to frozen yogurt snacks. With the number of yogurt products out there however, grocery shopping can be a challenge. Confused? Let’s break down some of the Best Yogurt Products in Malaysia.
