Yogurt Should Be A Staple Food



Q: How much yogurt do I have to eat to get the health benefits of the live bacteria?



A: The amount of yogurt necessary to obtain healthy intestinal flora will vary from person to person. The Dairy Council of California suggests 3.5 cups a day. It arrived at the 3.5 cups figure by calculating how many live cultures are commonly present in a given amount of yogurt and subtracting from that what would be lost during passage through the stomach. Our yogurt has many times the culture count of most yogurts, so you would probably not have to eat as much to benefit from it.

Nature’s Nanotech for Health & Fitness

Q: What does the beneficial bacteria in yogurt do when you eat it?

A: Our digestive tracts depend on several strains of live, beneficial bacteria to function properly. The bacteria help break down food, making nutrients more available for absorption through the intestinal walls. These nutrients fight infestation from potentially harmful bacteria, yeasts, and viruses. Beneficial bacteria counts can greatly decline as we age, consume antibiotics, undergo chemotherapy, etc. Eating yogurt—or any cultured product—repopulates the beneficial bacteria in our systems. Yogurt can help protect us from invasions by other illness-causing microorganisms and makes nutrients in all the food we eat available to our bodies.
