Why is Yogurt Good for You?

Yogurt, especially organic, probiotic yogurt is EXCELLENT for your health. From what I have read, it seems there is nothing important it can't do.

  • It is nourishing.
  • It is high in calcium.
  • It protects your immunity.
  • It improves your digestion.
  • It is tasty.
  • It mixes with savory and sweet items.
  • It helps dieters lose tummy fat. (yes, keep the bosoms, lose the tire!)
  • It improves the percentage of fat you burn in relation to other calories.
  • It improves the absorbtion of vitamins and minerals.
  • It improves your LDL/HDL ratio.
  • It helps prevent or reduce ulcers and osteoporosis.

You don't need to buy Danactive or Activia-- stick with Stonyfield, plain, whole-fat. It has calories, sure, but the taste is divine. Replace a couple handfuls of chips with a cup of yogurt. Your body will sing your praises like Handel's Messiah!
