A Lecturer in the department of Microbiology, University of Ilorin, Dr Amina Ahmed says the bacteria in yoghurt is good for health.

This was stated at the launch of two books titled ‘Knowing microbes and Time management for professional women’ in Ilorin on Thursday.

It was reported that yoghurt is a popular fermented milk product containing both Lactobacillus bulgaricus and streptococcus thermophilus cultures which is produced by bacterial fermentation of milk and the bacteria used to make yogurt is known as yogurt cultures.

Dr Amina Ahmed therefore said that the living bacteria known as probiotics could help to keep the intenstines healthy. She went further saying that the yoghurt products that goes through heat treatment have no active bacteria as it reduces the health benefits. “The health benefits can include promoting bone health and aiding digestion. Yogurt is rich in probiotics, which support your immune system and improve digestive health by maintaining levels of ‘good bacteria’ in the gut.” she said.

The microbiologist said that her second book on time management advised people to effectively use their time and peculiar circumstances to create more wealth adding that as someone with a humble beginning, life had taught her that investing time into productive activities could translate Into wealth, rather than hoping and praying for a fast turnaround.

She urged husbands of professional women to support their spouses as they are saddled with responsibilities within the available 24 hrs, that support would help women to achieve their set goals.
