Health Benefits of Yogurt

July 13, 2015 0 Comments


Yogurt has been touted as a health food for a number of years because it's an excellent source of calcium and protein so it’s good for strong bones and healthy muscles.

Yogurt also contains beneficial probiotics, which are friendly bacteria that are able to take up residence in your digestive tract. The probiotics help keep your digestive system healthy and they’re important for your immune system, too.

The nutrition information for yogurt varies a bit based on fat content and flavorings. One-half cup of plain yogurt made with whole milk has approximately 75 calories, 4 grams protein, 6 grams fat (2.6 gram of which are the saturated kind) and just under 6 grams carbohydrates, mostly in the form of milk sugar or lactose. It also has 148 milligrams calcium, and 15 milligrams magnesium.

The best way to add yogurt to your diet is to choose plain Greek yogurt and add some berries, nuts and honey, but you can also find flavored yogurt in single serving containers. Just read the labels to get an accurate calorie count for each variety.
