Folklore connects yogurt with long life, good looks and a spirited soul.
We can’t promise those lofty results, but we do know that yogurt has many benefits, including the fact that it is a good source of important nutrients, such as calcium.
Calcium is a must for healthy bones and teeth, yet many Americans fall short of the daily recommended amount.
One cup of plain low-fat yogurt provides 400 milligrams of calcium – about 40 percent of the recommended intake for most adults.
Research also shows that yogurts with live and active cultures help break down lactose, the natural sugar in milk. Breaking down lactose makes yogurt more digestible for people with lactose intolerance.
Look for the National Yogurt Association official seal on yogurt products – including all Yoplait yogurt products.
