Curd, also known as yoghurt, is loved by many because of its creamy taste. Curd offers all the benefits of milk; but unlike milk, it is easy to digest and has more protein and calcium content in it. People who can't digest milk easily (due to lactose intolerance) must eat curd.

There are immense benefits of curd for your health and hence it must be included in your daily diet. It is good for the bones, teeth, brain, stomach, intestines and what not. Curd is rich in iodine, zinc, potassium, phosphorous, riboflavin, vitamin B5 and vitamin B12.

Curd will be good for those who have liver, kidney and high blood pressure problems. The good bacteria present in curd can heal your stomach and intestinal issues. Your digestion will improve by eating curd regularly. Also, you will not face any gas troubles or flatulence issues.

Curd will supply you with all the needed nutrients, along with the good bacteria. Hence, you must not miss the benefits of curd. However, avoid all the flavoured curd products and eat only plain curd that is available.

Here is what happens to your body when you eat curd on a daily basis.


Your Blood Pressure Decreases

If you are facing the problem of a high blood pressure then you must eat curd daily. A study has shown that people who ate curd daily had less chances of developing high blood pressure, kidney and heart disease. This can be attributed to the potassium present in the curd.


Your Mental Concentration Will Increase

People who eat curd on a daily basis have strong brains and an increased mental concentration and ability. This is related to the good bacteria present in the yoghurt. A study on curd has shown that curd eaters have an increased memory power.


Makes Your Belly Flat

A study has shown that curd decreases the size of you belly by improving digestion and reducing gases. The good bacteria and fat-burning proteins present in curd melt the belly fat and also prevent constipation-related problems.


Your Waist Line Shrinks

Curd also melts the fat around your waist line by increasing the resting metabolism. This means that you tend to burn more calories while doing nothing. Curd also cuts down the production of a stress hormone in the body that causes fat accumulation around the waist line.


Your Appetite Normalises

Curd also reduces those food cravings and hunger pangs that make you eat a lot of unhealthy food. The proteins present in curd will give you a feeling of fullness, and you tend to eat limited food, which won't make you fat.


You Will Be Happy

Curd contains many vitamins and minerals, but the most important one that is good for your nervous system is vitamin B12. This vitamin is most needed by vegetarians, as it is mostly found in animal foods. Vitamin B12 alleviates stress and depression.


You Will Smile For Longer

Having curd cuts your risk of tooth cavities. The risk of tooth cavities with milk is higher, as it contains lactose sugar that can cause the decay. Hence, have curd instead for better teeth and bones.
