The Gut Police
Beneficial bacteria in the gut help to absorb the nutrients from the food we eat and use them correctly, so no matter how healthy your diet is, if you can’t absorb the nutrients from your food correctly you will always feel hungry as your body craves adequate nutrition and this can lead to over eating and weight gain.
Studies show that gut bacteria varies significantly between overweight and thin people. Overweight people have about 20% more of the “bad” bacteria and 90% less of the “good” bacteria when compared to their thinner counterparts.
We need Balance
Research shows that probiotics also work to support healthy blood sugar levels by improving insulin sensitivity and increasing insulin secretion, in other words, they balance our blood sugar levels which keep our weight in check.
We need to be specific
Clinical studies show that Bifidobacterium lactis helps control body fat mass, trunk fat mass, waist circumference and decreased energy levels while speeding up metabolism.
