Health benefits of yoghurt

Yoghurt, surprisingly, is one of the healthiest forms of diary, along with other non dairy yoghurts, that can provide many benefits. Some probiotics found in yoghurt are seen to prevent the absorption of fat, excreted through faeces rather than being stored in your body. This is further proven by a published study that has shown that dieting woman who took probiotics lost 50% more fat than those who did not. In addition to this, yoghurt helps balance the healthy good bacteria in your digestive system, that further aids the breakdown of food in your digestive system (Healthline, 2016). Through yoghurt’s rich supply of probiotics you are able to loose more weight and promote more healthy bacteria in your digestive system as well as other benefits.


Not only does yoghurt contain probiotics but is also a healthy source of macro and micro nutrients. Shown in the below nutrition table for non fat greek yoghurt, it can be seen that non fat yoghurt is low in carbohydrate and high in protein, essential for more healthy diets. A serve of non fat yoghurt is also high in calcium and Vitamin B-12 covering 11 and 13 percent of your diet, respectively. By including more yoghurt in your diet you are able to benefit from healthy levels of macro and micro nutrients.

As well as being filling with healthy food fill yourself with the word of God, as it is like water flowing into eternal life. This is shown in John 7:37-39:

37 On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! 38 Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”[a] 39 (When he said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given,[b] because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.)
