Drinking yogurt can bring benefits to the human digestive system, cardiovascular system, immune system, and beauty care. The benefits of eating yogurt are as below:

Yogurt can also promote gastrointestinal motility, which has a preventive and therapeutic effect on constipation. These are the yogurt health benefits.

What should you pay attention to?
There are many yogurt benefits. However, the following four prohibitions should be noted when consuming it.
Drinking too much yogurt is not always good
Yogurt has a sweet and sour taste, thus, many people like to drink it, while some even drink several bottles a day. Experts warn that it’s not better for you to drink more yogurt. You should control the amount you consume.
Generally speaking, the dosage should be based on the appropriate population as indicated on the package.
Thicker is not better
Many yogurts are thick because of the addition of thickeners such as hydroxypropyl di-starch phosphate, pectin, and gelatin. Although the right amount of thickeners can make the yogurt smooth and palatable, it is not beneficial to the body, and too much consumption can be harmful to health.
Not suitable for consumption on an empty stomach
Stomach acid has a sterilizing effect. So when you eat yogurt on an empty stomach, stomach acid will kill a lot of probiotics in yogurt. When you consume yogurt after meals, the effect of stomach acid on food is much greater than the effect on probiotics. Thus, don’t drink yogurt on an empty stomach.
Only refrigerate but not heat
Freshly produced yogurt contains active probiotics, which can only be well preserved by refrigeration. If the yogurt is heated, it will destroy its nutrients. Also, it is best not to drink hot drinks before and after drinking yogurt.
