Yogurt to prolong your life

I believe all of you have heard of yourt how it improve and bringing to a healthy lifestyle...
Yogurt is a valuable health food for both infants and elderly persons. For children, it is a balanced source of protein, fats, carbohydrates, and minerals in a texture that kids love. For senior citizens, who usually have more sensitive colons or whose intestines have run out of lactase, yogurt is also a valuable food. 

Let me share with you what yogurt can do to our body and prolong our life...

1. Yogurt lowers cholesterol. 
This may be because the live cultures in yogurt can assimilate the cholesterol.

2.  As a "grow food." 
The easier digestibility of the proteins and the lactic acid in yogurt increases the absorption of minerals. 

3. Yogurt is easier to digest than milk. 
The culturing process makes yogurt more digestible than milk.  In general, yogurt has less lactose than milk. The culturing process has already broken down the milk sugar lactose into glucose and galactose, two sugars that are easily absorbed by lactose-intolerant persons.
4. Yogurt contributes to colon health.  
When eating yogurt, you care for your colon in two ways. First, yogurt contains lactobacteria, intestines-friendly bacterial cultures that foster a healthy colon, and even lower the risk of colon cancer.  The friendly bacteria in yogurt seems to deactivate harmful substances (such as nitrates and nitrites before they are converted to nitrosamines) before they can become carcinogenic.
Secondly, yogurt is a rich source of calcium - a mineral that contributes to colon health and decreases the risk of colon cancer. Calcium discourages excess growth of the cells lining the colon, which can place a person at high risk for colon cancer. Calcium also binds cancer-producing bile acids and keeps them from irritating the colon wall.   

5. Yogurt can boost immunity.   
The bacterial cultures in yogurt have also been shown to stimulate infection-fighting white cells in the bloodstream. Some studies have shown yogurt cultures to contain a factor that has anti-tumor effects in experimental animals.

6. Yogurt aids healing after intestinal infections.
Yogurt is a popular "healing food" for diarrhea. Many pediatricians recommend yogurt for children suffering from various forms of indigestion. Research shows that children recover faster from diarrhea when eating yogurt. It's good to eat yogurt while taking antibiotics. The yogurt will minimize the effects of the antibiotic on the friendly bacteria in the intestines.

7. Yogurt can decrease yeast infections.  
Research has shown that eating eight ounces of yogurt that contains live and active cultures daily reduces the amount of yeast colonies in the vagina and decreases the incidence of vaginal yeast infections.

8.  Yogurt is a rich source of calcium.
Yogurt gets more calcium into the body than the same volume of milk can.

9. Yogurt is an excellent source of protein.
Besides being a rich source of proteins, the culturing of the milk proteins during fermentation makes these proteins easier to digest. For this reason, the proteins in yogurt are often called "predigested."

Did you know that Bulgarians who are noted for their longer lifespan and remain in good health well into old age with the daily yougurt consumption. Let's have a healthy lifestyle and prolong our life with a yougurt a day.
