Curd benefits for health:

Curd improves the digestion, the nutrients present in curd are easily absorbed by our digestive system. It also helps in absorbing nutrients from other food items that you have eaten. When taken along with spicy food, it cools down and neutralizes the heat that these foods create.

Some people, who cannot consume milk because they are lactose intolerant, can safely use curd as milk substitute. It converts the lactose present in milk to lactic acid, making it easier to digest. Also, we do not lose out on the nutritional boost that milk provides us.
