Why Yogurt is Best for You

Did you know that...

1. Yogurt contains billions of probiotic (good) 
   bacteria that restores balance in your gut 
   which can help in your digestion as well as 
   keep your regular bowel movement.

2. Regular plain yogurt is best for people who wants to lose weight.

Eat 18 ounces (about 500 grams) a day and you can drop a jeans size. People who ate that much -- in conjunction with cutting their total calories -- lost 22 percent more weight and 81 percent more belly fat than dieters who skipped the snack, according to research from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. They also retained one-third more calorie-torching lean muscle mass, which can help you maintain weight loss. "Fat around your waist produces the hormone cortisol, which tells your body to accumulate even more belly flab," says nutrition professor and lead study author Michael Zemel, PhD. When you eat yogurt, the calcium signals your fat cells to pump out less cortisol, making it easier for you to drop pounds, while the amino acids help burn fat.1

3. Plain yogurt, if applied to the face with olive
    oil and honey, and left on for 20 – 30      
    minutes, and rinsed after, is a best 
    exfoliant. It removes layers of the skin which
    can clear up discolorations and blemishes 
    and reduce fine wrinkles.
