Did you know that yogurt contains healthy bacteria called probiotics?
According to a recent study published in the journal Gastroenterology, UCLA researchers found that 36 women who consumed probiotics had reduced activity in the brain including areas that monitor mood and sensitivity to pain, anxiety and stress. Yogurt is a good addition to your diet too if you’re watching your weight and want to shed unwanted fat!
“Pretty dramatic effects can happen in animals when you change their gut flora,” says Tillisch. “If you take an animal with inflamed gut, and give them a probiotic, they don’t act anxious anymore.”
“At the most basic level, we show that by changing the bacteria in the gut, we change the way the brain responds to environmental cues.” – NPR
Another study “found that those who ate three yogurts a day while dieting lost 81% more belly fat than people who didn’t eat yogurt. All study participants were directed to eat 500 calories less per day. As part of the Flat Belly Plan, you should eat about 6 ounces of low-fat Greek yogurt before every meal. Why? It’s thought that calcium can help stop fat from entering your cells, improve your body’s ability to break down fat and help your body carry out fat through your bowel movements.” – DrOz.com
