Yogurt Ing: Skim milk, cream, organic evaporated cane juice, pectin, fruit puree or vanilla base, cultures.
Yogurt cultures include- Streptococcus Thermophilus
Streptococcus thermophilus and lactobacillus are efficient in preventing lactose intolerance. Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus cultured in a test-tube appear to stimulate disease-fighting cells. The bacteria also appear to reduce the amount of nitrite (cancer causing chemical) in the body. Studies have shown a relationship between those who consume good bacteria (Streptococcus thermophilus), in supplemental form or otherwise, and a decrease in the likelyhood of suffering from breast cancer and infectious diarrhea. When tested in animals it showed stunted growth of tumors.
Lactobacillus Delbrueckii Subsp. Bulgaricus
This bacterium has complex nutritional requirements, including the inability to ferment any sugar except lactose, from which it produces lactic acid, which gives yogurt its tart flavor, coagulates the milk proteins, and acts as a preservative. It is often helpful to sufferers of lactose intolerance, whose digestive systems lack the enzymes to break down lactose to simpler sugars. While fermenting milk, it produces acetaldehyde, which is one of the main yogurt aroma components
Lactobacilli are bacteria that normally live in the human small intestine and vagina. Lactobacillus acidophilus is generally considered to be beneficial because it produces vitamin K, lactase, and anti-microbial substances such as acidolin, acidolphilin, lactocidin, and bacteriocin. Multiple human trials report benefits of L. acidophilus for bacterial vaginosis.
Bifidobacterium Longum Bifidobacterium longum have genes that can synthesize about 19 different amino acids through their metabolic processes.
It helps in the production and absorption of B complex vitamins, blocks the growth of harmful bacteria by lowering pH in the intestine through production of acetic and lactic acids and boosts the immune system
A new study published in the July issue of the American Journal of Gastroenterology found that Bifantis (Bifidobacterium infantis 35624) may help relieve many of the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in women, including diarrhea and constipation
