The potential health advantages of probiotics, sometimes known as "good" or "friendly" bacteria, have received a lot of attention in recent years. They're live microorganisms that work similarly to the good bacteria naturally present in the human digestive tract. Probiotics, however, have been shown to have a substantial effect on weight control and hence represent a potent tool for assisting with weight loss.
How do probiotics affect me?
- Probiotics' beneficial effects on gut health and digestion are one mechanism by which they facilitate weight loss. Improved digestion, regular bowel movements, and less bloating and gas may result from a healthier mix of good and harmful bacteria in the gut, according to a research published in the International Journal of Obesity.
- Appetite suppression is one mechanism through which probiotics aid in weight reduction. The hormone ghrelin promotes appetite and increases food intake; according to research published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicated that probiotics may assist to lower its production.
- Increased satiety hormone production is another mechanism through which probiotics facilitate weight reduction. Journal of Clinical Nutrition research shows probiotics may boost GLP-1 production, making you feel fuller for longer.
Capsules, powders, drinks, and even gummy probiotics are just some of the many forms that probiotics may take.
