Dairy yogurt that comes from organic, grass-fed cows or goats is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and protein as well as essential vitamins and minerals magnesium, potassium, vitamin D, and vitamin K2.
Look for organic raw milk dairy (which comes from unpasteurized milk) or full-fat dairy to reap the benefits of this type of yogurt, specifically one that is low in sugar and ingredients. Yogurt is oftentimes pumped with refined sugar (as much, or more, than a candy bar) as well as artificial flavorings, colorings, emulsifiers, and additives to classify it as a health bomb – not a healthy option. Lower fat and fat-free yogurt options usually contain the most added ingredients to compensate for removed fat.
Dairy yogurt, one that is organic, grass-fed, full fat, and minimally processed is a delicious probiotic addition to the diet.
Skip dairy yogurt if you have any dairy allergies, experience bloating or gastrointestinal issues after consuming dairy products, follow a vegan diet or struggle with acne.
