Probiotics & Weight Loss
Understanding Probiotics and What They Do
Recent studies show that probiotics-microorganisms in food that promote healthy digestion-may play a part in improving weight loss. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in fermented dairy products and other foods that assist in breaking down food, including carbohydrates and fats. Some individuals may experience an imbalance of probiotics in their digestive system that causes them to experience discomfort from bloating, gas, or diarrhea, which could be remedied by introducing more probiotics into their daily diet. This could be done by eating foods such as low-fat, low-sugar yogurt on a regular basis.
Solutions to Lose Weight and Keep it Off
When it comes to weight loss, probiotics could prove to be helpful in a number of ways. Many individuals experience water retention and weight gain due to food allergies and food sensitivity. Consuming probiotics, either naturally or through a prescription, could help flush irritating foods out of the digestive system and restore balance. This is why probiotics are often recommended for those who suffer from
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Improvement of your
intestinal health could allow you to focus on your weight loss goals. Probiotics might also assist your body in breaking down foods into energy, so speak with our Denver weight loss clinic today to learn about our comprehensive and holistic approach to our weight loss programs.
