Why Eat Whole Foods?

Whole foods are unprocessed, natural foods in their original form. They are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber as well as all of the hundreds of phytonutrients that work together in the proper amounts to give our body exactly what it needs to be healthy. They do not contain added flavors, colors or preservatives.

You may not realize it, but your digestive system actually contains a lot of bacteria, both friendly and not so friendly. Your system depends on the friendly bacteria to function properly. That is why maintaining a healthy balance of bacteria is key to having a healthy digestive system. This is where Yogurtagogo yogurt can help – it contains the friendly bacteria that your body needs.

In large numbers, the less helpful bacteria in your system can be detrimental in two ways: 1) they can overwhelm the friendly bacteria and decrease their efficiency, and 2) in high enough numbers they can actually cause harm.

When your digestive system is out of balance, you can feel sluggish, bloated, experience indigestion, along with other bothersome symptoms. You just don’t feel right.

Disruptive factors like a poor diet, stress and antibiotics can all negatively affect the friendly bacteria in your body. As the number of good bacteria decreases, there's more room for harmful bacteria to move in.

A few ways that you can maintain a healthy digestive balance are by enriching your diet with fiber (at least 25 to 30 grams per day), drinking plenty of water, and getting adequate exercise. Eating probiotic foods like Yogurtagogo yogurt daily can help, too.

The freezing process does not kill any significant amount of the cultures—in fact, during the freezing process the cultures go into a dormant state, but when eaten and returned to a warm temperature within the body, they again become active and are capable of providing all the benefits of cultures in a refrigerated yogurt product.

Yogurt is a cultured milk product, made by adding "good" bacteria to milk. These "friendly" cultures, L. bulgaricus and S. thermophilus, are what give yogurt its special properties. Similar to the making of beer or cheese, these cultures ferment and transform the milk sugar (lactose) into lactic acid, creating the distinctive properties of yogurt. This process has been around for at least 4,000 years.
