Weight loss is a complicated subject, but it doesn't have to be. Most of us have a wounded gut, triggered by antibiotic overuse and antibiotics in food, that contributes to stubborn weight gain and obesity.
Antibiotics destroy a healthy inner ecosystem. But probiotics restore it. Once the inner ecosystem is healthy, the body naturally drops excess weight. Probiotic foods include kefir and cultured vegetables, which literally seed your inner landscape with helpful bacteria that fight inflammation and control the growth of harmful microbes.
Researchers have discovered five important ways that your gut health influences your
Metabolism: Gut bacteria harvest energy and can provide from 4-10% of your daily calories.
Hormonal Balance: Gut bacteria regulate gut hormones needed to control blood sugar, reduce leaky gut, and help you feel full.
Genetics: Your genome influences your inner ecosystem; genetic mutations can affect the hormone leptin that helps you to feel full, or satiated.
Inflammation: Unhealthy gut bacteria release toxins that trigger systemic inflammation; high levels of bacterial toxin have been found in those with type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Leaky Gut: An inflamed, leaky gut has been associated with problems with blood sugar and obesity.
Probiotics support your gut health and make natural weight loss possible. Enjoy cultured vegetables that can help to reduce body weight and ease inflammation. A delicious probiotic like kefir can help to lower cholesterol, fight inflammation, and support long-term weight loss. You can find out more about probiotics in this infographic.
