Probiotics coupled with Healthy Diet can Improve Weight Loss

Los Angeles, CA – 1/30/2014

Probiotics are commonly found inmany health stores and mentioned in nutrition articles frequently.  These common organisms are believed toimprove health by aiding the digestive system with its numerous processes.  And there could be something to it – a recentstudy showed a link between certain probiotics and weight loss in women.

Research has already determinedthat the intestinal flora is different in obese and thin individuals.  This could be a difference in diet,specifically fiber intake, but researchers were curious and decided to test ahypothesis which suggested that probiotics could help reset the balance ofintestinal microbiota and promote weight loss.

The study included 125 overweightmen and women who were put on a 12-week diet program.  Half the participants were given a probioticsupplement and the other half a placebo, and at the end of the study the womenin the probiotic had lost roughly double the weight than those in the placebogroup.  There was no change in the men inthe group and researchers were unsure why. But it was worth noting that during the initial 12 week period and thefollow-up 12 weeks of maintenance, the women consuming probiotics list twice asmuch weight than those in the placebo group.

Researchers did advise that noone should think of these probiotics as a cure-all.   Moreover, they should highlight theimportance of intestinal health and ensuring a diet rich in fiber and low infat.  These three things combined canassist the body in processing functions, and help women lose weight and keep itoff in addition to improving overall wellness.
