Science has recently highlighted the relationship between a healthy gut flora and weight loss. Several studies have shown that some strains of probiotics would contribute to weight loss.
You probably know that probiotics rebalance and maintain the intestinal flora, strengthen the immune system, facilitate digestion and improve metabolism. But did you know that they are also able to eliminate abdominal fat, and promote weight loss?
Probiotics and thinness: a scientifically proven efficacy
Probiotics are living “good bacteria” that form your intestinal flora and have beneficial effects on your health. They strengthen your immune system and protect you from viruses and other bacteria. An unbalanced intestinal flora can have a big impact on weight gain and obesity. Up to 30% of overweight people have intestinal flora poor in good bacteria.
In 2010, a study was conducted on 87 people with excess abdominal fat. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of probiotic Lactobacillus Gasseri (a strain of slimming probiotics) on obesity. People who took the probiotic L. Gasseri had lost about 5% of abdominal fat, and 3.3% of subcutaneous fat (the most dangerous for your health). Their weight had decreased by 1.4% and their waist size by almost 2%.
Lactobacillus Gasseri: the probiotic of thinness
The probiotic L. Gasseri, is a bacterium that is also found in breast milk. It is essential to the quality of your intestinal flora. Its natural and safe action contributes to the reduction of your fat mass (especially on the stomach). To be effective, the probiotic L. Gasseri must be ingested in the form of gastro-resistant vegetable capsules containing 10 billion microorganisms (to guarantee a sufficient quantity each time). Its beneficial effects strengthen the mucosal barrier of the intestine, and prevent the toxins that get fat to penetrate the blood.
- Gasseri promotes the absorption of unnecessary calories and therefore reduces your body’s ability to store fat.
Having no negative effect on health, the probiotic L. Gasseri guarantees a general well-being by strengthening your immune system. In terms of weight loss and fat, it is very effective and ideal for finding a flat stomach and, especially, keep it. To maximize its effects, however, it is advisable to adopt a healthy and balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
