Reason no. 8: They reduce belly fat
Struggling to lose weight? Plus, that stubborn belly fat just won’t go away? Well… open your fridge; you might have a probiotic yogurt forgotten there.
Some probiotics help you lose weight by preventing the absorption of dietary fat in your intestine. After that, that fat is flushed away, never to be seen again (at least not on your belly).
Other probiotics keep you satisfied for longer, making you eat less; therefore, you might see decreased numbers on the scale.
A study of 210 people highlighted that low doses of Lactobacillus gasseri can result in an approximately 8.5% reduction of belly fat.
So…the question is: Do you think you consume enough probiotic foods?
