According to Dr. Axe, yes it is! So let’s take a look at why. What are the 7 benefits of eating Feta cheese?
It protects against cancer…It’s a rich source of Calcium and combined with vitamin D this helps protect the body against various types of cancer. The protein
alpha-lactalbumin can be found in Feta and when it binds to calcium and zinc ions, it has been suggested to have antibacterial and antitumor properties.
Supports bone health…We all know that calcium supports your bones but milk can hurt your bones. Instead, find other high-calcium foods, like feta.
Boosts your immune system…Histidine, is another protein found in feta cheese. When Histidine is combined with vitamin B6 (also in feta) it becomes a molecular process to become histamine. That compound is part of the inflammatory process. A small degree of inflammation is what allows your immune system to fight disease.
Helps to maintain a healthy gut…Probiotics are the bacteria that line your gut. When they go out of whack, your body becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, yeast, fungi, parasites, and many other savory things.
Prevents headaches, and migraines…rich in vitamin B2/Riboflavin, has been known for a long time as a natural remedy for headaches.
Protects your eyes, prevents degenerative eye disease…If your diet is high in B2 you have a lower risk of things such as cataracts, keratoconus and glaucoma.
A natural treatment for anemia…the vitamin B12 (and a small amount of iron) found in feta can serve to fight anemia in the body.
As a lover of cheese I will be using feta a lot more often in my dishes because sometimes I enjoy cheese at every meal, l so if I replace most with feta I will be doing my body a favorJ
