– P eople who ate yogurt daily had a 3 percent to 4 percent increase in bone mineral density.
Osteoporosis is a condition that can do serious damage to your bones especially during old age.
But what if I tell you that eating yogurts can help contain the incursion, wouldn’t that be good news?
Acoirding to reports, e ating yogurt on a daily has been associated with a 39 percent lower risk of osteoporosis in women and a 52 percent lower risk in men compared with those who did not eat yogurt.
According to t he lead author, Eamon J. Laird, a research fellow at Trinity College Dublin: “The main message is that yogurt is a good source of micronutrients, vitamin D, B vitamins, and calcium — and of protein and probiotics as well. We think it could be a combination of these things that has the beneficial effect.”
In other words probiotics can do our bones a mighty good, especially for the elderly among us.
But one must be careful as most yogurts have way too much sugars. So make sure you pick up the most healthiest.
