Greek yoghourt

The Greek or strained yoghourt is different from the regular because it is a creamy, rich yoghourt with less sugar, more carbs and a tart taste. It is a nutritious snack that can benefit your health in many ways. A plain cup of non-fat Greek yoghourt includes vitamins and other nutrients, such as minerals and protein.

Remember that protein is vital for your body to have energy during a tiring day, to build bones and muscles and to have a healthy immune system. The Greek yoghourt includes also probiotics, vitamin B-12, iodine and potassium. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that keep you regular and happy, decreasing stomach issues, calcium helps your vital organs to function properly, while the vitamin B-12 is essential for your red blood cells, your brain and the DNA synthesis. Potassium lowers the blood pressure and iodine is important for proper thyroid function.
