Curd Side Effects: Curd is a very beneficial food item. Curd is made from milk, so the amount of protein in it is very high. On the other hand, it gets fermented due to bacteria, due to which many beneficial things are included in curd. Yogurt is a great source of probiotics. It greatly increases the number of good bacteria. Calcium, vitamin B12, potassium and magnesium are found in abundance in curd. 3.5 grams of protein is found in 100 grams of curd. Apart from this, many other types of nutrients are present in it. The biggest thing is that curd is the best quality probiotic. That is, it is full of good bacteria.
Despite all this, excessive consumption of curd can harm some people. It is said in Ayurveda that curd is a heavy thing, whose excessive consumption increases the problem of gas and bloating in the stomach. But what has been said about this in allopaths, on this we spoke to Dr. Priyanka Rohatgi, Chief Clinical Nutritionist at Apollo Hospitals, Bangalore.
Does curd really increase gas-bloating?
Dr. Priyanka Rohatgi told that it is told in Ayurveda that curd is a heavy thing, consuming too much of it harms people who already have stomach problems. This increases the problem of gas and bloating. But no study has come out on such things in allopath. Rather we consider it to be the best source of probiotics. It contains a lot of good bacteria which improves gut health. That’s why we recommend eating curd in weight loss. By the way, there is no harm from curd overall. People who already have bloating or gas problems, curd can make them more upset, but this happens to very few people. Dr. Priyanka Rohatgi told that if she feels that curd is causing harm, then she should eat curd with a dash of asafoetida.
It is also believed in Ayurveda that curd increases the pain of arthritis. That is, eating curd increases uric acid in the body. Due to excess of uric acid, it breaks down into purines. Purine starts accumulating in the form of crystals in the joints. Dr. Priyanka Rohatgi told that curd has nothing to do with arthritis pain. Arthritis pain does not increase by eating curd. There is no mention of this in allopath.
