Did You Know?

That yogurt helps promote fresh breath?
A recent study found that one serving of yogurt each day, reduces the level of odor-causing hydrogen sulfide in the mouth and cuts back on bacteria like plaque and gum disease. The American Dietetic Association (ADA) suggests that vitamin D from yogurt creates an inhospitable environment for bacteria growth. Only active yogurts without processed sugar-added varieties will do the trick.

What is "active/live" yogurt? Live yogurt, which contains active bacteria, is most often used therapeutically, and should be eaten to increase the healthy bacterial in the body, to help it fight infection.

Specifically, you are interested in yogurts that contain the live cultures Lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus. There may be two or three other types of live cultures, but these are the most common and easiest to assimilate for most people.

Yogurt does not only promote fresh breath, but also healthy skin.

Yogurt for Beauty

On the beauty front, natural yogurt makes an excellent facial cleanser and moisturizer. Apply it to the skin with cotton wool as you would a commercial product.
