Probiotics could be the key to weight loss – here’s what you need to know
Probiotics are live microorganisms with various health benefits when consumed or applied to the body. They can be found in yoghurt, other fermented foods, dietary supplements, and even beauty products.
Apart from their beneficial effects on our digestion, immune system, and overall well-being, some research suggests that certain probiotic strains can help us lose weight! Keep reading to learn more about how to use probiotic action to your benefit when it comes to sculpting your body.
Invisible yet impactful
Trillions of bacteria and microorganisms live on our skin and in our bodies – in fact, we are more microbe than we are human, with over 50% of all cells represented by microbes, yeast, and viruses.
Clearly, such a significant part of us has to have some sort of impact on our health, and the microbiota can indeed influence everything from digestion, the immune system, the production of nutrients, and even our weight!
Microbiome and our weight: the basics
Recent studies indicate that certain bacteria grow more rapidly, using up more nutrients and leaving less of them to go towards weight gain (compared to slower-growing bacteria).**
The two most prominent bacterial groups in the human body are Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes. Researchers have found that normal-weight people have a higher percentage of Bacteroidetes, and overweight individuals are more likely to have a higher rate of Firmicutes.**
This tells us that in order to support weight loss, we need to encourage the growth of fast-growing bacteria so that they can overtake their slower-growing counterparts.
Support your gut health in 5 easy steps
We suggest some small dietary and lifestyle adjustments and optimise your gut health, reap a host of health benefits, and support weight-loss efforts!
1. Take it easy
Research shows that stress can affect gut microbes. Carve out some time for activities you enjoy.
2. Get moving
Not only does exercise increase levels of various bacterial strains, but it also helps with stress and weight loss.
3. Don’t overdo it with your comforting faves
Limit sugar and processed food. Excess sugar can suppress beneficial bacteria, and processed foods are often high in not only sugar but also salt, fats, additives, and preservatives. They offer very few nutrients that could feed beneficial bacteria. They’re also higher in calories, so best to avoid them if you’re trying to lose weight.
4. Eat more gut-friendly foods
Certain kinds of fibre provide nutrition to the beneficial bacteria in our gut. They can be found in certain fibrous foods like bananas, asparagus, chicory, onions, garlic, leeks and many more. These are also usually low in calories and good for you in general.
Certain foods also contain live bacteria and yeast. Naturally fermented foods include yoghurt, kefir, kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, pickled veggies, miso, and aged cheese.
