The Secret Benefit Of Greek Yoghurt

If you’re health conscious, you probably tout the benefits of yoghurt. But Greek yoghurt is good for way more than topping off your morning bowl of fresh fruit and granola…  

It contains beneficial bacteria that support your overall health. Furthermore, it has less water than full-cream yoghurt. It has a thicker texture with fewer carbohydrates and sugar, and more protein making it very rich and beneficial for your skin. Yes – your skin!

The beauty-enhancing benefits of Greek yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is packed with protein, which is crucial for collagen production. Thus, when your eat loads of this delicious probiotic, you also boost your body’s collagen levels that naturally deplete as you age. This gives your skin a fabulous plump, and most of all a gorgeous glow!

Since collagen contains essential vitamins A and E, it’s also responsible for holding your connective tissue together for firm, toned skin.

So which is the best type of Greek yoghurt

Plain Greek yoghurt is the best for optimal beauty benefits. It doesn’t contain any added sugar. To make Greek yogurt, regular yogurt is strained extensively to remove liquid whey and lactose, leaving behind a thicker-textured yogurt. It has double the protein of regular yogurt, half the sodium of regular yogurt and  half the carbohydrates of regular yogurt.

If you’re not a yoghurt fan, you can also reap the anti-ageing benefits of Greek yoghurt by applying it topically. Simply whip up a homemade facemask using one cup of plain yoghurt, half a banana and one tablespoon of raw honey. Apply the facemask to your skin and leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, then rinse with cool water and voila… beautiful, refreshed skin.
