Healthy living advocate, Dr. Bisi Abiola, has reiterated the importance of regular yoghurt consumption for its numerous health benefits.
Abiola, who charged Nigerians on the importance of drinking yoghurt regularly, described yoghurt as a superfood loaded with calcium, vitamin B12, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, vitamin D, protein & probiotics and should be an essential part of your daily balanced diet.
She said consumers should prioritize yoghurt consumption as the health benefits of the lactic bacteria in yoghurt are well known. She said, ‘‘These include: immune system support, healthy digestion, lower body fat, stronger bones and fresher breath. These benefits and more make yoghurt one of your body’s best friends.
“Yoghurt provides almost every nutrient that your body needs. It is especially high in calcium, B vitamins, and trace minerals, making it an extremely healthy snack. Yoghurt also provides an impressive amount of protein which is helpful for metabolism, appetite and weight management.
‘‘So, for those who think that yoghurts are popular because they taste rich and creamy, the reality is that its benefits go beyond just taste. And that is exactly the reason why you will find an array of yoghurt brands on the market shelf. With consumers getting smarter and now opting for healthier beverage companions to drink alone or complement their favourite snacks, leading drinking yoghurt brand, Hollandia Yoghurt, provides the delicious taste and nourishing goodness to enable them fit extra nutrients into their diets.
‘‘Since it was introduced into the Nigerian market, Hollandia Yoghurt has strived to keep to its brand promise of nourishing goodness. It is a feat that has seen the brand become the most preferred and generic name for drinking yoghurt amongst consumers. Hollandia Yoghurt is available in two variants of Plain Sweetened and Strawberry, and it comes in five different pack sizes of 1Ltr, 500ml, 315ml, 180ml and 90ml,’’ she said.
