Voskos Greek Yogurt suggests males seeking to become a father add Greek yogurt to their diet.
“To make healthy sperm, men need a diet that is rich in calcium and protein,” says nutritional expert Ward Bond, Ph.D. Dr. Bond has 25 years of specialized experience in nutritional research, and hosts a national daily television program, “Nutritional Living with Dr. Ward Bond.” He also contributes to Voskos Greek Yogurt’s “What’s Fresh” blog. That’s one reason why Mens Health magazine has named Greek yogurt one of 40 “Foods with Superpowers.” An 8-ounce serving of Voskos Plain Low-Fat Greek Yogurt contains 23 grams of protein (45% of the daily value) and 25% of the daily value of calcium.
For years, infertility was largely thought to be a woman’s problem. The Yale Fertility Center at the Yale School of Medicine estimates that male infertility is responsible for inability to conceive in about 40% of cases. According to Dr. Bond, “It’s important for any man who wants to start a family take care of his overall health. Your diet is directly tied to the quality and mobility of your sperm. Adding Greek yogurt to your diet is one painless way to help boost your protein and calcium intake. You’ll also benefit from the active probiotic cultures in Voskos Greek Yogurt, which aid in digestion.”
Another health benefit for men who include Greek yogurt in their diet? “Male infertility has been linked to excess body fat,” says Dr. Bond. “Adding low-fat, naturally unsweetened Greek yogurt to your diet as a substitute for high-calorie snacks may help support weight loss.” A study published in the International Journal of Obesity showed that men on a reduced-calorie diet that included high-calcium yogurt lost 81% more belly fat than dieters on a low-calcium diet. “Another study cited in Obesity demonstrated that people who consume 25 percent of their daily calories as protein lose significantly more weight and have a lower appetite than those who eat less protein,” says Dr. Bond. “Plain Non-Fat Voskos Greek Yogurt contains twice the protein of traditional yogurt.”
