I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice cream! And rightfully so, if there is one thing that brings unison among all of us, it’s definitely ice-cream. Now we know that ice-cream is not categorically your “health food”, but what if we told you that there are several health benefits of having ice-cream?! Sounds surreal, doesn’t it? Well, it’s true. We are about to tell you 5 reasons why you should make ice cream your best friend, so that you enjoy your scoop, guilt free:
- Healthier bones:
Ice creams are particularly rich in calcium and phosphorus, with about 10 percent of the adult recommended dietary allowance, of these minerals in a single, one-half-cup serving. Both calcium and phosphorus promote strong, healthy bones. In fact, consuming plenty of calcium, but not phosphorus, wouldn’t do your bones much good. Also, eating foods that are rich in calcium helps to keep your body strong and your metabolism running well. That means, ice cream actually helps you lose weight. A win-win for all we’d say.
- A source of essential vitamins:
Here’s another motivation to eat ice cream. Ice cream happens to be a huge source of vitamins A, B-6, B-12, C, D, and E. And what’s more amazing is that it also contains Vitamin K, important to prevent blood clotting! How much sweeter can it get now?
With a variety of fruit Ice Creams that are available at Gatox, the Vitamins have just become yummier!
- Boosts your immunity:
Now don’t look so puzzled, we’ll explain how. It’s really simple. Ice cream is a form of fermented dairy, and fermented foods are what help to protect your body from gastrointestinal and respiratory infections. So, the stronger your gut and respiratory systems are, the stronger your immune system will be. See? We told you it was so simple.
- Energies you:
Ice creams are an excellent source of energy. They are rich in carbohydrates, with about 15 grams in a one-half-cup serving. A serving also contains about 7 grams of fat and 2 grams of protein, making it an energy-dense food.
- Makes you happier:
Wonder why you feel so good every time you take a lick of ice cream? It’s not just because it tastes delicious. Ice cream stimulates the thrombotonin, which is a happiness hormone and helps in reducing the stress levels in the body. Ice cream is made of milk, which contains L-triptophane, which is a natural tranquilizer and helps in relaxing the nervous system. It also helps prevent symptoms of insomnia. Enough said. It’s time to move closer to your nirvana with an Ice Cream from Gatox.
