Though yoghurt is portrayed in most advertising as women’s food, it’s loaded with nutrients that men need, too. No wonder it’s a perennial favorite on “super food” lists in men’s magazines and websites. But what exactly makes it a great food for men? Mountain High Yoghurt shares five benefits of yoghurt and how they can support men’s health.
Build strength from the inside out. Brittle bones hardly fit the image of a strong man, but it’s estimated that about half the men in the United States are calcium deficient. Furthermore, 20% of osteoporosis patients (or 2 million) are men, and another 12 million men are at risk for it. Calcium also helps regulate blood pressure and support muscle contraction. An 8-ounce serving of all natural Mountain High Yoghurt provides at least 33% of the recommended Daily Value of calcium for a 2,000 calorie diet.
Get ripped, save money (and your kidneys). Men who are building muscle need more protein, but too much can stress your kidneys. Unfortunately, many amateur athletes may ingest more protein than they need through the overuse of protein powders. And protein powders can be expensive. Yoghurt is an affordable and natural source for protein. An 8-ounce serving of all natural Mountain High Yoghurt provides at least 10 g of protein or 20% of the recommended Daily Value for a 2,000 calorie diet, so it’s great for exercise recovery. Yoghurt is easily ingested after intense exercise, which is
when protein can best help rebuild muscle.
Man up your rehydration with a smoothie full of potassium. Potassium is an essential nutrient that helps regulate blood pressure and balance sodium in the body. Potassium can be lost through perspiration, so after intense physical exercise, blend yoghurt with fruit juices (orange juice is high in potassium) and drink up to facilitate exercise recovery. Mountain High Yoghurt contains at least 14% of the recommended Daily Value of potassium per 8-ounce serving, for a 2,000 calorie diet.
Immunity Support and Digestive Health
Beef up your defense! The friendly flora in probiotic yoghurts fortify your digestion and immunity to help fend off viruses, colds, and other illnesses. Every 8-ounce serving of Mountain High Yoghurt contains at least 100 billion live, active, and probiotic cultures. Spoon it up after a workout in a gym, where germs can spread quickly.
Versatility and Convenience
Go free agent. Yoghurt is a great staple that frees up your options. Of all the “super foods,” yoghurt is probably the most versatile. Blend it with just about any kind of fruit or juice for an antioxidant boost. It likes company, so stir in fruit pieces, chocolate chips, jams, nuts, or cereals. You can use plain yoghurt to top hot dishes such as tacos, enchiladas, curries, or baked potatoes. Or go for convenience: just scoop and eat.
