HARRISBURG, Pa., March 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- You know that making smart food choices and exercising on a regular basis can help you avoid unwanted weight gain, but did you know that your gut microbiome can also have an impact on weight? It is made up of trillions of bacteria and plays an important role in your health by helping improve digestion and overall health. Prebiotin Prebiotic Fiber can help with this part of your diet equation.
Weight gain and obesity can be caused by a number of factors, from poor diet, to high stress and sleep problems. A lesser known cause of weight gain and obesity is an unhealthy mix of colon bacteria in the digestive track, a condition called dysbiosis. Causes include a diet high in meat, saturated fat, processed food, and sweets, as well as binge drinking, stress, and long-term antibiotic use, all of which increase the bad bacteria in the gut.
A higher concentration of bad bacteria can weaken the gut wall, allowing toxins to seep into the blood stream, reaching the liver and circulatory system. These toxins can lead to chronic inflammation throughout the body and contribute to high blood pressure, heart disease, and poor blood sugar regulation, all in addition to weight gain.
Fortunately, the bacteria in the gut can be managed to create a healthier microbiome. Adding a daily prebiotic supplement, such as Prebiotin® Prebiotic Fiber, can create a more beneficial balance of bacteria, which in turn, can help you to maintain a healthy diet and keep off unwanted pounds.
Prebiotin is derived entirely from 100% chicory root, with no added fillers, flavor enhancers, or preservatives. The purified fiber, known as oligofructose-enriched inulin (OEI), ferments in the colon and nurtures desirable bacteria strains like bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.
Research supports taking Prebiotin to fight obesity. In a study with 30 obese women, researchers found that taking prebiotic fiber caused positive changes in the gut microbiome, including increased levels of two beneficial bacteria that are associated with a decrease in fat mass and decreased risk of diabetes.
Prebiotin may also help reduce obesity in children. In recent research conducted at the University of Calgary Canada, scientists gave 42 obese or overweight children either eight grams of oligofructose-enriched inulin (the ingredient in Prebiotin) or a placebo once a day for 16 weeks. The results: annual projected body weight increase in the prebiotic group of 6.6 pounds—in the healthy range. By contrast, the projected increase in the placebo group was 17.6 pounds, triple the expected yearly weight increase.
Prebiotin Prebiotic has the ability to support weight loss in the following ways:
Reduces appetite by decreasing the amount of hunger hormone produced in the gut
Increases the release of satiety or fullness hormones produced in the wall of the small intestine to give an earlier sense of fullness when eating
Helps to strengthen the gut wall
Supports better blood sugar control with less insulin resistance
Reduces inflammation in the gut and body
