“Don’t take your body to the doctor as if he were a repair shop.”

– Quentin Regestein

When you think about getting healthy food to support your digestion, you likely think that yogurt is your absolute best choice. I get this.

Don’t worry, not all yogurts are worthless for your health… but you need to know some of the things to avoid so you’re not wasting your time, money, or even worse, creating a bigger health mess in your gut.

So many of you understand about the concept of getting good healthy probiotics an healthy bacteria in to your digestive system—that’s super good…

…but yogurt is not always your best choice since commercially made food items often come with too many add on ingredients and actually ruin the original benefits as in most yogurts…

Keep reading to see what I mean:

 

1.  First problem with yogurt:

Some well-known store brands of yogurt contain live cultures and some do not. This is why it’s important that you read the label looking for 1 Billion to 6 Billion CFUs per cup.

Unfortunately, some brands will pasteurize the yogurt AFTER it’s been fermented (cultured) which KILLS the beneficial probiotics.

The KEY is that you need to look for “live and active cultures” on the label, or another labeling that indicates the probiotics are still active…otherwise you are not benefitting.

(frankly, this is why my husband and I make our own yogurt)

 

2.  Second problem with yogurt:

Most common brands of yogurt in the US have way too many sweeteners, sugar, corn syrup, or artificial sweeteners.

This is a double whammy blow to the benefit of eating most commercially produced yogurt.

First, the bad bacteria love and thrive on sugar and then the second blow is that dangerous artificial sweeteners like

Splenda

KILL the good guys (bacteria/probiotics) with the chlorine that it contains…what a massive mess for the flora in the gut! Since most brands of yogurt has this profile—too much sugar or Splenda, you are canceling out any benefits and likely allowing the bad bacteria to thrive.

(Read labels and only get plain yogurt, I like Greek style plain yogurt if I get commercially-made)

 

3.  Third problem with yogurt:

The last problem with yogurt is that it is not necessarily the best source of probiotics, both in terms of quantity and also variety of strains.

Look, variety is KEY when it comes to the overall power of probiotics for your immunity and digestion.
