In case you’re not aware, ice cream offers a slew of health benefits. Breast Cancer Car Donations shares some of them here:
- It helps with infertility.
You may find this hard to believe, but researchers have found evidence that ice cream helps make a woman more fertile. According to a Harvard study, drinking full-fat milk or consuming ice cream can increase a woman’s chance of having a baby. Aside from that, other studies have also shown that pregnant women experiencing nausea in the early stages of their pregnancy can also improve their condition by eating ice cream.
- It contributes to weight loss.
You may not know it, but your body burns more calories and hastens metabolism when you eat something cold. This could be good news for those who are trying to lose extra pounds! Don’t deprive yourself of an occasional cold treat!
- It’s a mood booster.
Feeling low? Grab a spoon and get some ice cream. According to research, eating ice cream cheers you up because it triggers your brain to release the happy hormone called serotonin.
- It strengthens your immune system.
Did you know that ice cream can help strengthen your immune system? Ice cream is known to be a dessert that’s rich in cytokines, a substance that helps the body fight infections that include influenza and flu.
- It helps prevent breast cancer.
Studies have shown that eating ice cream helps lessen your chances of developing breast cancer. Not having enough calcium in the body is said to contribute to the development of breast cancer. Since ice cream is rich in calcium, it can help combat breast cancer in women.
