6 Reasons Why Ice Cream Can Be Good For You

1. It Can Help You Lose Weight

A recent study found that individuals that had a scoop of low-fat high quality ice cream a day lost 26 percent more weight than the individuals that didn’t. This is because of the calcium in the dessert and implies that taking a calcium supplement could help you achieve the same result as calcium helps to strengthen your body and boost your metabolism. BUT! Then you wouldn’t get to enjoy a scoop of ice cream every day.

2. It Is Packed With Vitamins And Minerals

Each scoop of ice cream – the organic dairy variety specifically – is rich in calcium, vitamin A & D, riboflavin, and phosphorus. This is due to the milk and cream used in creating the ice cream. The additional nutrients also come from the ingredients used in the organic ice cream flavors that we make, for example, the delicious strawberries used in our berrylicious flavors.

3. It Provides A Quick Energy Boost

Ice cream contains sugar, and as a result, can provide a quick boost of energy by releasing the glucose found within the sugar. Of course, you need to be mindful of the sugar content in the ice creams that you consume – rather look for something that isn’t loaded with sugar.

4. It’s Good For Strong Bones

As already mentioned, ice cream is packed with calcium which is good for building strong bones and teeth. Our bodies do not produce calcium, which means that we need to find ways of including it into our diet to help us get our recommended daily allowance.

5. It Can Boost Your Immunity

Fermented foods, especially those made using dairy, are great at preventing respiratory and gastrointestinal infections. If these systems are healthy and looked after, your body will be stronger and healthier too.

6. It Makes You Happy
