In brief: Marketing tool

There are no "super foods".
Some are good in providing essential nutrients (vitamins, minerals), other stuff like antioxidants, gut friendly bacteria (probiotics), fiber fuel for the probiotics (prebiotics). No food will prevent or cure a disease. Yogurt is a very good food-esp if unsweetened, low-fat or no fat. Provides good quality protein , calcium, magnesium , phosphorus, b6, b12, probiotics.
