Probiotics and obesity

Posted by Joanette B.

Probiotics and obesity

It seems every day we get more good news about  probiotics. I came across an article from the March 7 edition of  FASEB  Journal where one study indicates a relationship between gut  micoflora, metabolism and glucose equilibrium. In the study, lean  participants  (mice) and their gut  microflora  were compared to obese  participants  (also mice). It seems gut  microflora  helps regulate how the human body uses insulin. 

Also, in a paper published in  Nature  in December of 2006, it was reported that once obese people lost weight, their gut  microflora reverted to what was observed in a lean person. 

Look for more news about the relationship between a healthy metabolism and gut  microflora  in the coming months.
