Eating yogurt reduced biomarkers tied to chronic inflammation and the risk for cardiometabolic disease in healthy women who had not reached menopause, according to two recently published studies.
“We hypothesized that premeal yogurt consumption would reduce postprandial biomarkers of metabolic endotoxemia and inflammation and improve metabolism in obese women to a greater extent than in nonobese women given the inherent intestinal barrier dysfunction associated with obesity,” Ruisong Pei, PhD, MS, a department of food science research associate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and colleagues wrote in the Journal of Nutrition.
