Yogurt and Probiotics
WHY DO YOU NEED Yogurt/PROBIOTICS ?
Health 101 on a Sunday! Lol
So, ladies we go through so many bodily changes. Let’s be honest. Truth is as much we love our children they take our bodies on a health roller coaster and it doesn’t just happen during pregnancy, it effects your body after birth as well. Even if you haven’t had kids yet, your body still goes through changes. After having the twins it was like I had to relearn my body all over again! I went from young and fun to “let me take my vitamins and probiotics before I leave the house” lol.
Everyday I consume a cup of yogurt. Not just because I love it, but because of the nutrients that it provides. Yogurt has been consumed for hundreds of years.
It’s very nutritious, and eating it regularly may boost several aspects of your health.
For example, yogurt has been found to reduce the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis, helps keep you regular, as well as aid in weight management (be sure to check the sugar content), It helps with inflammation and bloating( my issue. After the twins birth I consume so much water weight). Yogurt is also important for women's health. The lactobacillus in yogurt prevents the production of candida (a type of fungus) and vaginitis in the vagina. Studies reveal that women who regularly consume yogurt have better vaginal health.
First, a quick recap, but let me put this disclaimer in here lol I am no physician. I have learned how to keep my body healthy through research and with my gynecologist assistance. Now, back to what I was saying.
Your gut is home to trillions of microorganisms that include both good and bad microorganisms. Ladies, we ALL have “good” and “bad” bacteria.
The ‘good’ bacteria play important roles in maintaining your overall health. They’re involved in digestion, immune system function, hormone production, and much more.
Supporting your gastrointestinal environment by introducing good bacteria into your digestive system will help to keep these bacteria in good shape, which means they can do their job properly. One of the best ways to do this is by consuming probiotic bacteria.
Some types of yogurt contain live bacteria, or probiotics, that were either a part of the starter culture or added after pasteurization.
These may benefit digestive health when consumed.
To ensure your yogurt contains effective probiotics, look for one that contains live, active cultures, which should be listed on the label. I buy the @activia brand. I also include a probiotic pill in my daily regimen as well. I’ll provide the link for that so you can take a looksy!
If you were anything like me and not a fan of yogurt add some granola, your favorite fruit, and a splash of honey. It’s so good!
Ok, Health 101 is over on a Sunday! Lol
