Is Bacteria Making you Fat?

Probiotics are live microorganisms that alter the permeability of the intestinal wall and help keep pro-inflammatory molecules from entering the bloodstream by filtering out and eliminating harmful bacteria, toxins, and other waste products from your intestines. Thereby Probiotics prevent weight-related issues such as overweight and obesity. Research studies have shown that Probiotics can help you lose weight, prevent weight gain, and lose belly fat. Based on the fact that the intestinal flora of obese people differs from thin people, scientists found that the consumption of certain Probiotics balances intestinal microbiota.

The majority of microorganisms in your digestive system are good and bad bacteria. Research has found that normal weight people have more good bacteria, compared to overweight people who had more bad bacteria.

Bad bacteria cause more fat to be stored, and increase sugar and fatty food cravings. Probiotics decrease bad bacteria while increasing good bacteria because they inhibit the absorption of fat; fat is excreted from the body instead of being stored.

Probiotics release the appetite-reducing hormone GLP-1. Increased levels of this hormone help you burn calories and fat. Also, Probiotics increase levels of the protein ANGPTL4 which decrease the storage of fat.

Of all the Probiotics, Lactobacillus rhamnosus appears to be the most effective. You can digest Lactobacillus rhamnosus by taking GLOW’s form of Probiotics. Other Benefits of Probiotics include improving digestive health, reducing anxiety and depression, and reducing cardiovascular risks.

The best way to balance your intestinal bacteria is by taking daily Probiotics. At GLOW, our Probiotics meet and exceed the requirements for optimal weight loss and maintenance.
