Excellent info sir. I have just started consuming curd made of pure milk, and I can already notice its benefits for my body and stomach. However, I have a doubt. When I take curd, my mind tends to become inactive or heavy for sometime. Why does it happen? Is it normal that way?


I also started reducing my weight

@Gaurav: Curd is actually good for mind. Most south Indians end a meal by eating rice mixed with curd. In the West, yoghurt is a dessert usually eaten frozen or with fruit, and yoghurt made from low-fat milk is a health food. Yoghurt's tartness makes it a perfect matrix for sweet banana slices, fresh or frozen berries, grapes and pineapple slices.

Curd, more so made from Cow's milk, is very good for human health. It strengthens the immune system of the entire body specifically the digestive system. When digesting is good so many ailments like Diabetes, Cholesterol, high B.P etc do not strike the body. In South India Rice with Curd is fed to children right from age one. It is so good, natural and beneficial.
