Can probiotics cause weight gain?


Probiotics are helpful for your health, right? Well, maybe not. Some researchers have suggested that probiotic supplements may lead to weight gain. But not all probiotics cause weight gain and this is true for both children and adults.

Probiotics are a type of bacteria that provide health benefits.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed. These beneficial bacteria can be found in fermented foods, such as yogurt and kombucha, or in dietary supplements.

Many people take probiotics to help restore the balance of good bacteria in their gut after taking antibiotics or experiencing other disruptions to the body's natural flora. Probiotic supplements can also be used for a variety of other reasons, including boosting immunity, preventing irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), improving skin health and reducing acne flare-ups.

Probiotics can also cause indigestion and gas.

The good news: probiotics are bacteria, so they are digested just like any other food. Probiotic supplements may also cause some bloating and gas, especially if you're taking a high dose.

The bad news: some people experience digestive issues after taking probiotics, including diarrhea or constipation (which can happen if your microbiome is off-balance). In these cases, it's worth trying an alternative or getting your gut tested to see what's going on with the balance of microbes in there.

Some people don't respond well to probiotic supplements.

Some people don't respond well to probiotic supplements. Probiotics are good bacteria, but some people have allergies or sensitivities that cause a bad reaction when they take them.

For example, if you're allergic to dairy, you may be able to eat yogurt but not the probiotic supplement version of it. Or if you have an autoimmune disease and are sensitive to gluten, then your body might also react negatively when given a probiotic supplement with gluten in it (though this is more rare).

If you're worried about whether or not your body will respond positively or negatively to taking probiotics, talk with a doctor before starting any new supplement regimen.

The exact amount of weight gained has not been determined yet.

In order to determine the exact number of pounds you'll gain, we must first establish a baseline.

Measuring your weight is a good way to keep track of your progress. It's also necessary if you're going to be selling any weight-loss products on the side (which is not recommended).

If you have a medical condition, you may want to talk to your doctor before taking probiotics.

If you have a medical condition, you may want to talk to your doctor before taking probiotics. Also, if you are on a weight loss program or pregnant, it is not recommended that you take them. Before taking probiotics there are several things that need to be considered:

  • What type of bacteria do I want?
  • What are the side effects?
  • How long will I need them for?


Probiotics are safe for most people, but some people may want to talk to their doctor before taking them. If you have indigestion or gas after taking probiotics, stop using them and consider talking to your doctor about other options for improving your health.
