Increased Nutritional Value of Milk Proteins

Milk proteins have high nutritional values due to their biochemical composition. The proteins in the milk are of high quality such as α-lactalbumin and β-lactoglobulin. Proteins content of fermented milk such as yogurt increases typically 2-3%. The amount of soluble proteins and free amino acids increases in the yogurt. Lactic acid bacteria require amino acids that's why they break down proteins for their proteolytic activity. Proteins in the digested milk are reported to be completely digestible.

Antimicrobial Activity

Gastrointestinal cavity is full of microflora. There are good and bad also. There must be a balance in both of them. Balance is disturbed when we take antibiotics or due to illness. Yogurt is known to be a good antimicrobial. the Lactic acid bacteria lowers the pH of the gastrointestinal cavity which acts as bactericidal. Some species of the Lactic acid producing bacteria also produces the hydrogen peroxide which is also a very good bactericidal chemical.

Study shows that the cancer is caused mainly due to the environmental factors, most chiefly the food which we eat. Bacteria sometimes also plays its role in cancer. Lactobacillus found in fermented milk cause the deconjugation of the bile acids and lowering of the body sterol pool. Conjugate bile is reported to enhance the absorption of cholesterol.  Additional research is needed on possible hypocholesterolaemic effect of yogurt.

Immune System Stimulation

The metabolic activity of small intestine is same as the liver. Due to the presence of many microflora in the intestine, they can also cause infection and illness to the victim. Due the antimicrobial activity of the yogurt which is discussed above, kill the harmful bacteria in intestine and helps the immunes system.These lactic acid producing bacteria found in yogurt are known as natural killers because they kill the harmful bacteria.
