Is yogurt the key to happiness?

Our bodies are quite curious - we become unnaturally hungry when sad, or ecstatic when satiated. Scientists, for the longest time, have believed in the connection between the brain and the gut, which is shown by the gastrointestinal indications sent by the brain to the gut.

As surprising as it may sound, in 2013 a research proved that the signal not only travels from the brain to the gut, but the other way as well. In the study, in a group of women who consumed yogurt every day, it was found that their bodies had a higher count of probiotics.

The consumption of yogurt may reduce the activity of insula which is the emotional center of the brain, and helps reduce anxiety and stress. Since the brain also picks up on the sense, and particularly smell, it has been found that plain yogurt can elicit emotional responses such as comfort or happiness.

Can you eat yogurt if you're lactose intolerant?

Can you eat yogurt if you're lactose intolerant?

People suffer from various degrees of lactose intolerance which make them resistant to the particular kind of sugar in the food product. Many people can ingest moderate quantities of dairy while some are completely averse to a majority of dairy products. For those who are lactose intolerant, some dairy products are universally easier to digest, such as aged cheese and yogurt. 

This is majorly because most of the lactose in these products have already been broken down and reduced. Greek or organic yogurt are the safest kinds for lactose intolerant individuals as they contain a higher concentration of whey, and the watery part of the milk has been carefully strained out. Sassy Lassi is a brand of yogurt that offers organic yogurt that is delicious and nutritional. Grab a pack of Sassy Lassi from the nearest HEB or Whole Foods Market for a healthier life choice.

How yogurt keeps your bones healthy

How yogurt keeps your bones healthy



Packed with vitamins and calcium, yogurt should take the first place in your diet chart! You can have yogurt at any time of the day - for breakfast, as a companion for lunch, and even at bedtime. Frozen yogurt is fun to eat, easy to digest and a wholesome supplier of nutrients for the body.



Eating yogurt for healthy bones is a better idea than drinking milk. Here’s why! Depending on milk for calcium supplement is simply archaic. In reality, milk leaches out calcium from the bones to neutralize the acidic rise of the body’s PH level which is caused while drinking milk. But yogurt is acidic neutral, so it helps in retaining calcium in the bones. Yogurt is also rich in lactoferrin, an iron-binding protein that plays a key role in the building of strong bones. Lactoferrin found in all flavors of Sassy Lassi yogurt boosts the growth of cells that build bones (osteoblasts).



Flavored and low sugar Sassy Lassi yogurt not only makes a healthy sustenance but is also a favorite among kids and adults alike for its yummy servings and a huge variety to choose from.

5 Reasons you should choose all-natural yogurt

Choosing dairy products that are all-natural provides more nutrients, and all in all, is always a better choice.

     Your body will thank you! All-natural yogurt is a blend of wholesome dairy and bacteria that is ideal for your body, low in lactose content and high in vitamins and minerals.

     According to a 2012 study, all-natural yogurt can guard against breast cancer because of Lactobacillus acidophilus, a probiotic bacteria extracted from all-natural yogurt such as SassyLassi’s yogurts.

     All natural yogurt is ideal for weight loss. Yogurt helps you reach your weight goals by slowly eliminating abdominal fat, the hardest fat to get rid of.

4 nutrients in yogurt that can boost healing



Full-fat and authentic yogurt contains almost all the vitamins that are needed for a human body. Some of the other nutrients present in yogurt are:

     Vitamins: Yogurt is a great source of vitamins such as vitamin B12, calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin and minerals. 

     Proteins: There are milk proteins present in all natural yogurt with a high content of amino acids. These amino acids help to burn fat. These proteins boost your body’s ability to absorb calcium and improve the immune system.
