A study of nearly 1,000 men and women, ages 40 to 79, has shown that fermented milk products, such as Yogurt, has significant benefits for your gum tissue.

The study, conducted by researchers at Japan’s Kyushu University, found that just 2 ounces of Yogurt per day can improve gum health. This is further proof from earlier findings that insufficient calcium in one’s diet is associated with periodontal disease.

So, instead of reaching for a candy bar in the afternoon, have a cup of sugar-free Yogurt. Your smile will thank you!
