New Study Finds Probiotic, L. Rhamnosus, May Provide Hope For Weight Loss In Women.
Promising Research Findings at Laval University in Montreal, Quebec show a possible connection between the L. Rhamnosus strain of probiotic and weight loss in women.
While the women in the study were on a diet rich in fibre and low in fat, the study shows there was a significant weight reduction in the women who were on a probiotic as opposed to those who were not.
At the conclusion of the study, the women who remained on the probiotics continued to lose weight. This points to the importance of regaining control of the microbial balance of the digestive tract. An overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria and yeast has many detrimental effects on the entire body.
Victoria Playfair, co-founder of Savi Wellness Products, has this to say,"The significance of this study and many others like it, gives credence to what we have believed all along. A balanced bacterial environment within the gut has beneficial effects for the entire body. When it was shown that weight loss can also be a result of restoring gut health, we saw this as a boon to so many who struggle daily with weight issues and have lost hope."
As the good bacteria re-colonize and populate the intestinal tract, it brings the yeasts and bad bacteria back into check. A ratio of 70-80% good to 20-30% bad bacteria is appropriate.
The good bacteria then goes to work, cleaning the intestinal wall and lining of debris. It repairs the mucosal lining so nutrients are able to be readily absorbed into the blood stream and heals the minute tears in the wall that are the result of leaky gut syndrome.
As the gut heals, messages to the rest of the body become more 'coherent'. This not only can decrease brain fog, mood swings and depression but may help rebalance hormones, particularly leptin and Ghrelin. Both these hormones play an important role in energy, regulating food intake and weight loss.
Playfair says, "The more we learn about the impact our gut health has on our overall health and wellbeing, the better we can understand the interplay of all the systems in our body. We see probiotics, in the form of foods and supplements, playing a vital role in the future of our health."
