Benefits of Yoghurt

Youghurt has nutritional benefits beyond those of milk. The fact that lactose in milk is converted to lactic acid in yoghurt allows people who are moderately lactose-intolerant to enjoy yoghurt without any ill effects. The reduction of lactose bypasses the affected individuals' need to process the milk sugar themselves.Apart from it's nutritional benefits,yoghurt also has medicinal uses,in
particular for a variety of gastrointestinal conditions,and in preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea.Yoghurt is also believed to promote good gum health, possibly because of the probiotic effect of lactic acids present in yoghurt.
