Are you getting enough Probiotics?

  • Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis found that obese people have more of a family of bacteria called firmicutes than lean people.
  • Stanford University researchers recently found that people who take probiotics after gastric bypass surgery lose weight faster than those who don’t.
  • Researchers from the University of Turku in Finland found that taking probiotics during the first trimester of pregnancy may help women lose weight after they give birth.
  • They also produce vitamins A, B and K, which protect you from illness and enhance peristalsis.

Probiotics can help:

  • Enhance immune system
  • Prevent infections
  • Relieve inflamed bowels
  • Prevent yeast and urinary tract infections

How can you get probiotics?

  • Kefir, yoghurt, sauerkraut, natto, Kim chi, or in supplement form
