I’m a “lactose sympathizer,” according to The Daily Show’s Ed Helms. Though a picky eater as a child, I always loved and drank plenty of milk which, I’m convinced, saved me from nutritional ruin! Today I particularly recommend yogurt.
Yogurt may be one of the best overall foods you can eat. It creates a natural way to boost your immune system by providing probiotics which increase the healthy bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract, according to my friend and colleague, Jo Ann Hattner, MPH, RD, in her book, “Gut Insight.”
Probiotics are live bacteria that promote digestive health. As we age, it is thought that bacterial populations in our gut change – resulting in increased harmful, disease-causing bacteria and fewer protective bacteria. When you add probiotics you repopulate the gut with beneficial bacteria that protect against infection-causing toxins. You also improve colon health by lowering pH of the colon, so it’s receptive to the beneficial bacteria and detrimental to the disease-causing bacteria, you protect the intestinal lining, and strengthen immunity. Exciting research is evolving on the health benefits of probiotics.
Vegans will get plenty of good nutrition with soy milk and yogurt, too.
