The Benefits of Probiotic, Non-Dairy Yogurt

The Positives of Probiotics

Yogurt, whether made with non-dairy or dairy milk,  is a thick, fermented product packed with high concentrations of gut-healthy bacteria, minerals like magnesium and calcium, and vitamins like vitamin B1 and B6. When combined, these nutrients boost immunity, build stronger bones, and keep intestinal health in check.

  • Lower blood pressure: It has been scientifically shown that diet high in probiotics helps lower both blood pressure and triglycerides levels in the blood.
  • Lower cholesterol and fat levels: Eating probiotics has been found to lower cholesterol and fat levels in diabetics.
  • Well regulated blood sugar levels: Probiotics regulate blood sugar levels.
  • Lower body weight and/or gain: Those who eat a diet high in probiotics have lower body mass index, lower body fat, smaller waist circumference, and less weight gain.

Benefits of Coconut

  • Reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease: The MCT in coconut milk fosters the creation of ketones instead of glucose.
  • Better gut health: Lauric acid in coconut milk kills bad bacteria.
  • Faster weight loss: Diet high in MCT fats has been shown to stimulate weight loss.
  • Lower cholesterol: Coconut milk raises good cholesterol and reduces bad one.

Benefits of Oats

  • Reduced risk of coronary artery disease: Oats lower the risk of coronary heart disease by lowering bad cholesterol and raising the good one.
  • Reduced risk of colorectal cancer: Eating a diet high in fiber has been shown to lower the risk of colorectal cancer.
  • Reduced risk of obesity and chronic disease: Oats reduce the risk for fat gain due to the fact that they provide better nutrient intake.
