The new year is a great time to set new goals. Improving your health is a popular resolution, and TopTherm is here to support you in your health journey! Whether you’re looking to eat healthier food, get more exercise, lose excess weight, or improve your overall health and wellness, incorporating Greek yogurt into your plan can help you achieve results.
Goal: Eat healthier
Eating healthy food is great for your overall health and wellness. If you’re aiming to eat better in the new year, Greek yogurt is a great option! It contains protein to help you feel full as well as calcium to support bone health and a variety of other important nutrients. Yogurt and Greek yogurt make great snack options - you can even make them at home with TopTherm’s yogurt maker. Yogurt can also be used in salad dressings, sauces, desserts, and more.
Goal: Improve your gut health
Good gut health is important for achieving overall health and a strong immune response. A properly functioning digestive system also helps the body more efficiently absorb nutrients and prevent gastrointestinal problems. Our Gut Support starter cultures contain a probiotic blend to make delicious yogurt that contains good-for-you bacteria to support a healthy gut. You can also support gut health by drinking plenty of water each day, adding foods high in fiber to your diet, and exercising on a regular basis.
Goal: Improve heart health
Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in many countries, and high blood pressure is directly related to many problems in the cardiovascular system. Prioritizing your heart health is a great goal for the new year! Reducing your consumption of salt and saturated fat can help support heart health. Getting physical activity and quitting smoking are also helpful. Adding yogurt to your diet can help, too, as our Heart Health Support Starter Cultures contain a probiotic blend that may help support your overall heart health when combined with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
Goal: Get more exercise
Getting exercise offers a variety of health benefits. For example, it can help reduce stress and improve your overall quality of life. Regular exercise also stimulates your metabolism, helps you build muscle mass, and helps keep your joints strong. Exercise is also good for keeping your digestive system healthy. If you’re aiming to add more exercise to your routine in the new year, try our Performance Support Greek Yogurt Starter Cultures. They were designed to help athletes and anyone who needs extra support before, during or after strenuous physical activity.
Goal: Lose weight
Eating Greek yogurt can also help you reach your weight loss goals. Greek yogurt is lower in calories than many other popular snack options, which can help you reduce the total amount of calories you consume in a day. The protein in Greek yogurt can keep you from snacking too much by helping you feel fuller for a longer amount of time. If you’re also aiming to reduce the amount of sugar and carbohydrates in your diet, Greek yogurt makes a delicious low-carb snack.
