Not only is yogurt a tasty treat, your body loves it too! Here are some 'froyo facts' you can impress your friends with:

*PROBIOTIC CULTURES: Yogurt contains "good bacteria" or Probiotics (literally translates to "for life") which aid in digestive health. These Probiotic cultures feed off of and help break down lactose in the milk, allowing for a smoother digestive process in your stomach and intestines, even for those who aren't lactose intolerant!

*IMMUNE HEALTH: 70% of your immune system response occurs in your digestive tract. The "good bacteria" found in yogurt help fight potentially harmful pathogens throughout your digestive system. For ultimate autoimmune response, these beneficial cultures should be replenished on a daily basis to help fight against viruses, colds, and other potentially harmful pathogens.

*HIGH IN CALCIUM: Yogurt has a great deal of calcium, which is widely known to help strengthen bones. Most Americans only consume about 50% of the suggested daily calcium intake. Yogurt is the perfect way to boost calcium consumption and thus reduce the chances of bone deterioration over time. Sounds like a win-win, right?

*GREAT SOURCE OF PROTEIN: Yogurt is a great source of protein, an essential part of your daily diet. Protein, a macronutrient- meaning the body needs relatively large amounts to stay healthy- is a key component to every single living cell in your body (bone, muscle, cartilage, skin, blood), not only helping to build and repair body tissues, but also playing a vital role in enzyme and hormone production. Hey, with the right toppings on board (e.g., fresh fruit, granolas, nuts, etc.), your frozen yogurt creation just might be a complete meal!

*APPETITE REDUCTION: Yogurt also has been shown to curb appetites. Because of its delicate balance of Probiotics, enzymes, calcium, carbohydrates, and protein, yogurt has been shown to make people feel "fuller" faster (that's a mouthful), and for longer periods of time. Studies have also shown that people who consume yogurt on a daily basis consume fewer calories in general than those who do not eat yogurt regularly.

*MORE PRODUCTIVE WORKOUTS: Yogurt boosts the body's ability to burn fat after a workout. Yogurt has been shown to be one of the best post-workout foods because it revs up the metabolism and replenishes the nutrients lost during strenuous activity. Not only is yogurt full of calcium, protein, and Probiotics, but it also contains essential nutrients such as magnesium, B12, riboflavin, zinc and potassium.

*IMPROVED CHOLESTEROL PROFILE: Yogurt has been found to lower "bad" (or LDL) cholesterol levels in the body while simultaneously increasing "good" cholesterol (or HDL) levels. How thoughtful!

*LACTOSE INTOLERANCE: Many people who are lactose intolerant can often tolerate yogurt products because of an abundance of the enzyme lactase, which helps break down the natural lactose found in regular, unfermented/uncultured milk.
