Ugolicious Frozen Yogurt is made from Natural Greek Yogurt making it a A Healthier Choice of Ice Cream

First off, let us not forget that yogurt comes from milk. So yogurt eaters will get a dose of animal protein (about 9 grams per 6-ounce serving), plus several other nutrients found in dairy foods, like calcium, vitamin B-2, vitamin B-12, potassium, and magnesium.

But one of the words we’re hearing more and more of regarding yogurt is “probiotics.” Probiotics are “friendly bacteria” that are naturally present in the digestive system. Live strains of these “good bacteria” are also found in many yogurt products. While more research needs to be done, there’s some evidence that some strains of probiotics can help boost the immune system and promote a healthy digestive tract.

Probiotics made news recently when a class action lawsuit was filed against the Dannon Co. over marketing for its Activia and DanActive products, in which the company uses trademarked probiotic strains. Activia is a yogurt marketed as being “clinically proven to help regulate the digestive system when eaten daily for two weeks,” while DanActive is a drink marketed as being “clinically proven to help strengthen the body’s defense systems,” according to company websites.

A2 Milk

Ugolicious uses A2 Milk in countries where it is available.

All regular cows’ milk brands today contain a mix of both A1 and A2 proteins. Only A2 Milk comes from cows hand-picked to naturally produce only A2 protein and no A1.

Recent research from Curtin University in Western Australia suggests that the A1 protein in regular cows’ milk might cause tummy discomfort in some of us. If that’s you, A2 Milk may help. But for the unique benefits of A2 Milk to work it needs to be the real deal – true A2 Milk.  From cows that naturally produce only the A2 protein and none of the A1.

All regular cows’ milk brands today contain a combination of two main types of beta-casein protein, namely A1 and A2. A2 Milk  is special because it is the only exception to this.

What makes A2 Milk™ different to regular cows’ milk is the absence of the A1 protein. It is the A1 protein that many people seek to avoid by switching from regular cows’ milk to A2 Milk.

A2 Milk does not contain A1 beta-casein protein which has been shown to release the potent opioid BCM-7 on digestion. Opioids in the gut may affect gut motility and absorption processes which may affect digestive wellbeing.
