Can eating yogurt prevent diabetes?

Yes, eating yogurt can reduce the risk of diabetes. A recent research from Harvard School, Boston suggested that eating yogurt daily reduces the risk of developing diabetes. Yogurt is a pro-biotic, i.e., it has helpful and healthy bacteria, which are good for our intestines and help in digestion. These bacteria also help in the reduction of injury to the intestines (caused by harmful bacteria and faulty diet) and they help in the production of vital hormones which are required for the better digestion of food. Some of these hormones, even help in controlling appetite and help in maintaining body weight. Thus, when yogurt is taken, it helps in maintaining a healthy body weight as well as helps in digestion, in turn preventing diabetes. Apart from that, yogurt is high on calcium and can help fulfill the dietary need of calcium too. It is important to know the amount of yogurt that needs to be taken. Roughly 1–2 serving of roughly 75–100 grams in a day is sufficient to be beneficial (higher amounts have not been shown to be harmful).
