Drinking water. Exercising. Taking vitamins. When you stop to think about what's good for your health, these are probably the type of things that immediately come to mind. But what I'm about to share with you are some "random" things that are just as good; things that you've probably never even considered to be physically beneficial but absolutely are.
Some are fun. Some are odd. One in particular is a little gross to think about but you'll still be glad to know about it. Are you ready to learn some health-related trivia that you probably wouldn't hear anywhere other than on an episode of Jeopardy? Check them out below.
8 Surprising Things That Are Good For Your Health
1. Ice Cream
I don't know one person on the planet that doesn't like ice cream. But for those of you who may be like me and currently have 3-5 different pints in your freezer, there's nothing to be ashamed of. So long as you consume ice cream in moderation (of course), there are several reasons why it's actually pretty good for you.
Ice cream is a fermented dairy product, which makes it good for your immune system. Plus, it's high in calcium; that makes it not only good for your bones but it can even help you to lose weight. Since it also raises dopamine levels in the body, ice cream can give you more brain power too.
And get this — if you're currently trying to get pregnant, ice cream can make it easier. One study revealed that women who consumed at least one serving of high-fat dairy, which is exactly what ice cream is, had almost 30 percent less ovulation issues than those who didn't. Pardon the pun but, how cool is that?!
