This is what happens to your body when you eat yogurt every day

Yogurt is very healthy – so healthy that you should eat it every day. But what exactly does it actually do in your body?

Yogurt is considered the fountain of youth. The fermented milk treat is a superfood, packed with the nutrients your body needs: protein, protein, vitamins, calcium, probiotic bacteria and more.

“Most people eat yogurt from time to time, but you should do it more often – ideally every day. “Your body will thank you,” says nutritionist Vasilisa Ponomareva specially for MedicForum.

Eating yogurt every day is a benefit

Yogurt is real immune system booster

The immune system needs more than just vitamins, which are involved in the formation of immune cells in the bloodstream and body cells. Much of the immune defense occurs in the gut, where it is necessary to keep harmful putrefactive bacteria and their toxins under control.

The probiotic bacteria in yogurt do just that by producing lactic acid, because lactic acid is a poison to harmful microbes.
“Yogurt with probiotic bacteria promotes healthy intestinal flora and weakens the adaptive immune system, which can now better cope with viruses and other intruders. The intestinal surface becomes resistant due to bacteria.”

Yogurt has anti-inflammatory effects

Overweight people are particularly likely to suffer from hidden and often undetected areas of inflammation. They can become chronic and lead to, among other things, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease or arthritis.

Probiotic lactic acid bacteria have anti-inflammatory and healing effects, in particular due to their high content of vitamins B5 and B12.

In affected people, the healing process began after about eight weeks after consuming about 200 grams per day.

“According to the study, the anti-inflammatory effect may even protect against some types of cancer, such as breast cancer.”

Yogurt strengthens the heart

“The study also found that daily consumption yogurt can significantly reduce the risk of heart attack – by about 20 percent in men and even 30 percent in women.”
Lactic acid bacteria bind and metabolize excess salt in food in the intestines, which regulates blood pressure to healthy levels.

Yogurt provides strong bones and shiny teeth

Another metabolic waste product lactic acid bacteria is calcium, and in large quantities. A normal adult needs about one gram of yogurt per day, and, depending on the type of yogurt, a 250 gram cup already covers about a third of the daily requirement.

Calcium is especially important for the formation, maintenance and regeneration of bone material, and may need a little more for teenagers, pregnant women and older adults.

“Calcium also ensures healthy and strong teeth, and the B vitamins in yogurt nourish and protect your gums. Eating yogurt daily also ensures a beautiful smile.”
Eating yogurt also reduces the risk of vaginal infections. The recommended dose here is a minimum of three servings per week.
People who are lactose intolerant should avoid consuming yogurt as much as possible. There is a risk of diarrhea and severe abdominal pain.
