Yogurt is one of the best products you can use for your insides and your outsides when it comes to your natural health and your natural beauty. Here are some health benefits for eating yogurt (then we’ll go on to the benefits of smearing it all over your face!) -
Yogurt is full of enzymes that will help your digestion, while not putting you at risk of lactose intolerance. One of the enzymes is lactase, which is the one that people who are lactose intolerant lack. The other is beta-galactosidase which helps improve lactose absorption in lactase-deficient persons. So if you can’t drink milk, eat yogurt.
Yogurt contains friendly bacterial cultures that will give you a healthy colon, and lower the risk of colon cancer. Lactobacteria, especially acidophilus, promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon and when you put friendly bacteria in your gut, you cut down on the risk of damage by carcinogens.
Yogurt is rich in a bio-available type of calcium, one of the minerals that makes your 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. People who eat a diet high in calcium have been shown to have a decreased risk of colorectal cancer.
Plain yogurt contains around ten to fourteen grams of protein per eight ounces, which amounts to twenty percent of the daily protein requirement for most persons. And this is protein that is more easily digested than other types of protein.
