Friendly Flora Boosts Weight Loss in Obese Women
It is becoming a very well documented fact that the bacterial balance of power within your digestive tract has a major bearing on your metabolism and body weight, independent of how many calories you consume or your exercise habits. The latest study shows that a strain of friendly flora, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, is really helpful for women as a weight loss tool.
The controlled clinical trial was set up so that the first 12 weeks women were guided to eat less food and some were additionally given the Lactobacillus rhamnosus. After 12 weeks the amount of weight loss was greater in the group receiving the friendly flora supplement. Over the next 12 weeks the dietary restrictions were lifted, and the friendly flora was continued. Those women not taking Lactobacillus 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.
