Do probiotics help with weight loss?


Probiotics are very popular and for good reason. They're a type of bacteria that's helpful for your health. But do probiotics help with weight loss? Yes! Read on to learn more about how they can help you shed pounds and feel better.

Do they help with weight loss and fat loss?

Probiotics help with everything. That's what they do. You may have heard of probiotics as a way to improve your digestion, immune system, and overall gut health. However, did you know that they can also help you lose weight?

That's right: By improving your digestion and boosting the number of healthy bacteria in your gut, these microscopic organisms can reduce inflammation in the body—which is often linked to weight gain—and make it easier for you to burn fat. The result is more energy throughout the day and faster recovery from workouts, making reaching your fitness goals easier.

How do they work to help you lose weight?

Probiotics are good bacteria that, when ingested in the right forms, can help improve digestion and metabolism. This improvement helps you lose weight by:

  • Improve your digestion. Probiotic bacteria feed on sugar, which means they're constantly working to break down food before it gets absorbed into your body. That keeps your blood sugar levels stable and prevents spikes in insulin that might otherwise make you crave more sugar later on (which would lead to weight gain).

  • Increased fat burning. Probiotic bacteria also boost your metabolic rate, which helps burn off fat faster than normal metabolism alone would do—meaning it's easier to not only stay lean but get slimmer if you're already carrying extra pounds around! This has been shown in studies with human participants who ate yogurt containing probiotics for several weeks before having their weight measured again after another three weeks without said yogurt--the results showed that even though these people had eaten more calories during those two weeks than normally allowed for research purposes (about 500 extra per day), they still lost about five percent of their original body mass due to higher metabolism rates brought on by increased activity from friendly gut flora!

How many probiotic capsules do you need to take?

Probiotics can be consumed every day. The recommended dose is one to two capsules per day, preferably with food. If you are taking antibiotics or other medicines that affect the balance of bacteria in your body, you may need to consume more than one capsule per day. If your doctor recommends it and you find that the probiotic is helpful for weight loss, continue taking it even after you reach your target weight.

Do not take more than the recommended dose. This may cause side effects such as nausea or diarrhea. If these symptoms occur during treatment with a probiotic supplement for weight loss, consult a healthcare professional immediately about whether further use of the product is appropriate for you.

Probiotics should not be used by anyone who has an allergy to dairy products or if they have recently undergone surgery where their bowels were opened up (gastrointestinal surgery).

Which probiotic supplements should you use for weight loss?

While there's no one-size-fits-all probiotic for weight loss, there are some guidelines to follow when choosing the right supplement. First and foremost, look for a product that contains at least 1 billion CFUs (colony-forming units). A higher number of CFUs means you'll get more live cultures in every dose! Our Flora Probiotic supplements with 10 million CFU are available at

Next, consider adding a prebiotic as well. Prebiotics nourish the good bacteria already in your gut and help them thrive—which means they'll have even more benefits! Make sure these types of supplements aren't shelf-stable but require refrigeration instead; this will ensure that the temperature doesn't kill off any beneficial microbes before they reach your intestines. Finally, don't just get any old bottle of probiotics; make sure yours is shelf stable so that it won't spoil before reaching your home or fridge (and we know how often opening/closing our fridges can kill stuff!).

Probiotics may help you lose weight.

Probiotics are good bacteria that live in the gut. They help with digestion, absorption, and even metabolism. When there are more good bacteria than bad, it's called "imbalance" or "dysbiosis."

A healthy diet is essential for maintaining a balanced microbiome but there are also some supplements you can take to support your microbiome on days when you're not able to get enough nutrients from food alone—and probiotics are one of them!

The most effective way to ensure your gut health and keep weight loss healthy and strong is by taking a daily dose of probiotic supplements (or eating foods rich in probiotics) daily.


We hope this guide has been helpful in showing you the potential health benefits of taking probiotic capsules.
