In the 70s there was a centenarian’s outbreak in Georgia. In this socialist country lived more centenarians per capita than anywhere in the world. It was reported that this was due to the high consumption of yogurt. Although it was never scientifically proven that there is link between long life and consumption of yogurt, this super food’s health benefits are well-known.
In Eastern Europe most people can’t afford much of the thinks that make lives easier here in America. Most elderly people there live in poverty and can’t afford even some essential drugs. Yet they live in their late 80-ties and even 90-ties. It is presumed that this phenomenon is due to the high consumption of yogurt. In Bulgaria during the post-socialistic era pensions of old people were so extremely low, that all that they could afford was yogurt and bread. Bulgarian yogurt (or Sour milk, as they call it) is unique for this region thanks to the lactobacillus bulgaricus, which lives only in this small Balkan country. It gives the yogurt an unique flavor that can’t be tasted anywhere in the world. If you ever go to Bulgaria don’t forget to try it. This is one of the prides of their nation.
Often Bulgarians use this unique yogurt to detoxify their bodies. It helps people with diabetes to better digest carbohydrates. It is also believed to have age-defying properties, but this has not be proven yet.
One thing that is sure is that this “Sour milk” is a true miracle thanks to the lactobaillus bulgaricus. It is prescribed by doctors in cases of mild food poisoning because of its detoxifying abilities. People eat it while they are on antibiotics to help their organism cope with the hard drugs.
Interestingly sour milk is very popular in Bulgaria in the mornings after heavy drinking. It’s said that this super food completely heals hangovers and other side effects caused by alcohol.
Sounds great, right? Well sadly you can’t make this super food this effective in US, but you can sure make some sour milk at home, and benefit form some of it’s medical properties.
First you will need to measure 1 cup of milk and pour it in to a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar and stir it with a fork for about 30 seconds. After that leave it for at least 5 minutes and after that your sour milk is ready. Don’t let it stay for to long once you put the lemon juice in it, or the flavor might go very bad. Enjoy!
