Frozen Yogurt Benefits: A good source of probiotics, calcium & Vitamin D

At Perry’s, we take pride in putting in enough of the Good Stuff. In our frozen yogurt, that includes probiotics, calcium and Vitamin D. So, is frozen yogurt healthy? While it’s not considered a “health food,” there are some frozen yogurt benefits.

A dessert with perks

Probiotics: good for the gut  

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeast that live in our bodies. Bacteria gets a bad rep, but there is good bacteria that’s necessary for our health. Probiotics (the good bacteria) help fight off the bad bacteria that enters our bodies and tries to get us sick. These beneficial microorganisms reduce inflammation, allergies and boost the immune system.

Calcium for bone and cardiovascular health

Count on calcium for the development, growth and maintenance of good bone health. Your heart, muscles and nerves also depend on this vital mineral.  

Vitamin D, calcium’s BFF

Serving as a dynamic duo, Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the gut­. Vitamin D offers other benefits such as supporting overall health including bone health and improving mood.
