We all know about ‘friendly bacteria' but a probiotic that can actually help you lose weight and boost your metabolism all at once? Surely not! Lactobacillus Gasseri is one of a probiotic that offers your body healthy solutions beyond only gastrointestinal support.
Probiotics are complex. Some people find the idea a little hard to swallow, living organisms occupying our gastrointestinal tract as though it were their own. But like it or not, we need these microscopic cultures of bacteria to continue to flourish inside us, combatting the ‘bad bacteria' which would prosper in their absence.
An imbalanced culture or ‘flora'. In the GI tract it can lead to all kinds of digestive problems and in our genitals it can create even more, often embarrassing discomfort. What has rarely been heard of before though is a probiotic that can actively affect our fitness and weight levels.
That's why it's surprising to learn that Swanson Probiotics Lactobacillus Gasseri is often commonly referred to as ‘the fitness probiotic'. A bacteria culture capable of not only supporting our GI health but also managing our fat metabolism, mostly in the ‘gut' area.
Most of us have known the frustration of carrying a ‘spare tyre' around our midriff. Sometimes it can feel as though, no matter how much you exercise, it just won't go away. But what you might not have realised is that what can appear to be a bit of innocuous extra weight could actually be having a lasting impact on your health.
Because our gut is in close contact with most of our vital organs, extra weight on it can add pressure and impact negatively on those organs. Swanson Probiotics Lactobacillus Gasseri offers you a surprising solution to an age old problem.
The hormone Leptin, often referred to as the ‘satiety hormone' is a key player in how we metabolise energy and store our fats. As we put on weight, our body's levels of Leptin traditionally decrease. This is unfortunate because Leptin is often said to control sensations of hunger. When we have plenty of it, we tend to quickly feel full.
Lactobacillus Gasseri helps the body regulate those levels of Leptin and extensive studies have shown that, as a result, it can actually inhibit our desire to eat more. Combine this with the fact that it fosters a healthy ‘microbiome' (the environment in which our ‘friendly bacteria' flourish); it helps boost your metabolism and it increase energy levels at the same time, and we really are talking about a probiotic that can help you lose weight.
