Adding yogurt to your diet might give you the moves like Jagger.

According to research involving probiotics and its effect on mice, being conducted by scientists at MIT, not only did ingesting yogurt make the specimen skinnier, it also gave them some "swagger."

Channel 5 reports that researchers Eric Alm and Susan Erdman want to know why eating yogurt had such an impact on the rodents.



To do so, they fed two groups of mice the same size meal, except one group got a helping of vanilla yogurt on the side.

According to researchers, they noticed that the fur coats of the mice who got the extra dish were thicker and “shockingly shiny.”

Not only that, but the males’ testicles had also enlarged, according to reports.

Researchers saw a 5 percent increase in testicle size on those mice eating yogurt over those not on the same diet.

“Almost everything about the fertility of those males is enhanced,” Erdman said.

According to the report, yogurt-eating males also mated faster and produced more offspring.

The research is ongoing, however.
