The Benefits of Yoghurt

Improve your diet simply by substituting high-calorie foods for plain yogurt. You’ll soon come to realize that many of the foods served with yoghurt actually taste better than those accompanied by the usual fattening dressings you’re accustomed to. One serving is a significant source of potassium, phosphorous, riboflavin, iodine, zinc, and vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid). Yogurt also contains B12, which maintains red blood cells and helps keep your nervous system functioning properly. Vitamin B12 is found mostly in animal products, such as chicken and fish, so strict vegetarians can easily fall short. An eight-ounce serving contains 1.4 micrograms of the vitamin, about 60 percent of what adult women need daily.
