How Do Probiotics Affect Body Weight?
Probiotics seem to influence appetite and energy usage. They make your body "harvest" fewer calories from the foods you eat. Certain bacteria, such as those from the Lactobacillus family have been found to function this way.
Probiotics may also aid the body in releasing appetite-regulating hormones, fat-regulating proteins, as well as reducing systemic inflammation which can drive obesity.
Different Strains for Different "Gains"
Before you start a probiotic regimen, determine the reasons you'd like to start one - maybe it's for overall gut maintenance, immune health, women's health or weight management. With so many options on the market, it's important to pay attention to the probiotic strain.
There is no one-size fits all formula. Scientific research has indicated that the effectiveness of probiotics for targeted areas of health support depends on the strain. (Ref. 3)
Evidence indicates that several strains from the Lactobacullus and Bifidobacterium family have been shown to reduce weight and belly fat.
The Bottom Line
Probiotics offer a wide range of health benefits. In addition to weight management, plus eating a healthy, whole-foods diet, there are many other reasons to take a probiotic supplement. They can improve your digestive health and cardiovascular risk factors, reduce inflammation, and even help fight depression and anxiety.
