Here at 98’s Family Apartments in Northeast Tulsa, we love Greek Yogurt. It’s thicker than normal yogurt and makes for a creamy treat anytime. But we were totally surprised when we found out just how many health benefits were packed into every cup of Greek Yogurt. We highlighted a few below from a recent post on the fantastic blog, Lifehack. After you read the whole post, titled Amazing Benefits Of Greek Yogurt (+5 Refreshing Recipes), you might want to acquire multiple Owasso, OK apartments just to store it all. We recommend starting with one shelf in your fridge.
Why Greek Yogurt is #1 at 98’s Apartments for Lease in Owasso, OK
As Lifehack points out, Greek yogurt is thicker in consistency than its regular yogurt cousin. This Mediterranean-style favorite undergoes a processing method that involves more extensive straining to remove most of the whey, lactose, and sugar. You won’t believe the other benefits of Greek yogurt. Here’s our top 3:
1. It keeps your brain healthy
Greek yogurt contains Vitamin B12, which is only found in animal products. A 100-gram serving of plain, nonfat Greek yogurt provides about 13 percent of your recommended daily value of this vitamin, which is necessary for a well-functioning brain and nervous system.
2. It improves digestive health
When you enjoy Greek yogurt, you’re also getting the added digestive power of the probiotics it contains. These are live, “good” bacteria that help balance out the bad bacteria in your gut. Probiotics also have anti-inflammatory and anti-pathogenic effects, essentially giving your immune system a boost, so your body is better equipped to fight off any harmful bacteria.
7. It keeps you full for longer
Greek yogurt has twice as much protein per serving as regular yogurt and cuts the sugar content down by nearly half (when you choose plain over flavored). A typical 100-gram serving of plain, nonfat Greek yogurt has about 10 grams of protein. More protein keeps you full for longer because it takes longer to digest, so you’re less likely to raid the pantry at your Owasso, OK residence for more snacks.
