For at least thirteen years, I have eaten yogurt at least 4 times a week. A lot of yogurts have been consumed by me but there is one that I must have, and that is Activia’s yogurt. I started eating yogurt as a teen when my mom would get them during her dieting stages. I would sneak one from the fridge and see what all the hype was about. It tasted good to me but that was all I really cared about at that age, it wasn’t until later that I realized yogurt had good protein content.
In my twenties, I started eating yogurt because of the protein content. It was a light snack or sometimes even a meal and I was happy to have had the protein consumption, then I discovered that yogurt also had a greater ingredient, active cultures of Lactobacillus acidophilus.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a probiotic, a “live microorganism which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit of the host.” (Defined by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.) This is in Activia’s yogurt, a health benefit for every individual which helps to aid in their digestive system and prevent certain infections.
For the past seven years, I have stayed true to eating Activia’s yogurt. The live cultures in the yogurt help to keep my skin clear because my digestive track is able to function properly. A healthy, functioning digestive system, enables the waste to rid the body thus taking out the bad that could contribute to poor skin. Also, the protein within the yogurt helps with the collagen building blocks in the body to keep your skin looking supple and soft.
Next time you’re eating an Activia yogurt, think of all the good things it’s doing to your body and your skin.
