The Insider's Guide To Probiotics And Weight Loss
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 24, 2014 ) Beaverton, Oregon -- Recent findings drawn from research around the globe show a pronounced connection between the microbial composition of the digestive tract and the incidence of obesity in humans. In other words, that delicate balance of friendly to unfriendly bacteria in the gut may be a factor in how much a person might weigh and how easy it is to lose that extra weight.
It is important to understand how this impacts the ability to lose the excess weight that is so difficult to shed. It seems as though the bacterial Studies show possible connection between probiotics and weight loss. composition of slim people is different than that of overweight people. In fact, when bacteria was transplanted from a lean mouse to a mouse without digestive bacteria present, it remained lean. But when they transplanted
bacteria from an obese mouse, the mouse gained an excessive amount of weight.
Various strains have been studied and found effective in Weight loss research programs. Lactobacillus Gasseri, Lactobacillus Plantarum
and Lactobacillus Rhamnosus have all shown positive results in weight loss. L. Rhamnosus has shown to be quite effective in helping women in their weight loss efforts as this recent study indicates:
"The controlled clinical trial was set up so that the first 12 weeks women were guided to eat less food. One group was additionally given the L. Rhamnosus. After 12 weeks the amount of weight loss was greater in the group receiving the friendly flora
Over the next 12 weeks the dietary restrictions were lifted, and the friendly flora was continued. Those women not taking L. Rhamnosus now gained weight, whereas the friendly flora group continued to lose weight.
The weight loss benefit was linked to measurements of the bacterial profile of the digestive tract. This study is the latest to show that the balance of power in the digestive tract is a metabolic variable of high importance and nothing to ignore as part of a long-term successful weight loss plan."
It must be said that a healthy diet overall is important as well, not only in achieving a normal, healthy weight, but maintaining the proper intestinal environment. There are many factors that can contribute to an imbalance in the intestinal flora. By making informed choices daily, many of these can be eliminated.
Victoria Playfair of Savi Wellness Products, a company whose Probiotic supplement has been well received by its customers, has this say:
"Research done in the last several years has shown us just how much of an impact our digestive health has on our overall health.
Our modern diet and lifestyle has changed the delicate balance of our gut to a great extent, resulting in many health issues, not the least of which is the global problem of obesity. But there are things that people can do that have a positive impact on their
health by restoring the gut to its optimal state."
When asked to give examples of how to create changes to gut health, Ms Playfair stated:
"Eliminate as many processed foods and sugars from your diet as possible. Sugars initiate an overgrowth of yeast. Pay attention to what your body is craving. There is a direct correlation between cravings and gut flora. If you have an abundance of bacteria
that uses sugar for food, that bacteria will actually initiate that craving in you.
Make a probiotic supplement part of your daily health regimen. A good supplement can go a long way in helping to restore balance to your intestinal tract. Be sure to add naturally fermented foods such as miso, kefir, certain yogurts and kimchi to your diet. They also add beneficial bacteria into your gut.
Set yourself a goal to reduce the stress in your life. Make the changes you need to make to bring your stress level down as much as possible. Stress is damaging to your health on every level, mental, physical and emotional. And it has an influence on the bacterial growth in your gut. Whether you take up meditation, Tai Chi, running, change your job or just take a vacation, reducing stress can add years to your life."
