Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in Yogurt, a type of essential fatty acid found almost exclusively in the fat of dairy products, can be obtained only through the diet because it is not produced by the human body. CLA has been shown to be a powerful natural anti-carcinogen that also can reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease, help fight inflammation, reduce body fat–especially abdominal fatlower cholesterol and triglycerides, increase metabolism, lower insulin resistance and enhance the immune system.

Yogurt also prevents the growth of harmful bacteria in the gut that may cause infections. These bacteria facilitate the formation of bulky, well-lubricated stools, which help in proper bowel movements.

8.

Additionally, the probiotic nature of yogurt suppresses the activity of helicobacter pylori, a species of bacteria that is responsible for stomach ulcers.

9.

On the other hand, lactoferin, an iron-binding protein in yogurt, stimulates the activity of cells that build up bones.

10.

And lactoferin also reduces the rate of breakdown by inhibiting osteoclastic activity.

11.

Lactoferin, along with calcium, also promotes the development of cartilage and prevents bone density loss.

12.

Lactoferin in yogurt also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and prevents the development of inflammation and succeeding tissue damage caused by the release of pro-inflammatory substances.

13.

Yogurt encourages bone health and protects against osteoporosis and arthritis.

14.

Yogurt also boosts our immune system, our body’s defense against infectious organisms and other invaders.

15.

And yogurt acts as an antioxidant by diminishing the damaging effects of free radicals.

16.

Further, researchers have found that consuming about 100 to 200 grams of yogurt (mainly low fat) per day not only lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol but also raises HDL (good) cholesterol.

17.

Yogurt even significantly reduces the levels of sulfide compounds associated with bad breath.

18.

Yogurt also contains Lipids which adds gloss and a soft, supple feel to hair as it preserves the integrity of skin’s natural moisture barrier.
