Can probiotics aid weight loss? RDs Explain and Share Best Weight Loss Supplements

 Probiotics have been in the spotlight for years due to their importance in gut health and wellness.

  Probiotics boost immunity, digestion, and heart health, and many individuals use them to lose weight.

 These microorganisms normally exist in your body and maintain good bacteria in the intestines, says obesity medicine expert and Intellihealth co-founder Katherine Saunders, MD.

 Eating in Color author Frances Largeman-Roth, RDN, suggests a healthy gut bacteria balance to prevent many health disorders.


 The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health lists IBS, atopic dermatitis, and the common cold as examples.

 Probiotics' weight loss advantages are unclear.


 “Probiotics could alter the microbiome in a positive way, but studies have shown minimal if any weight loss,” says Dr. Saunders. 


 There are so many bacterial strains in our intestines and so little we know about what happens when the balance is off.


 If the gut flora is unbalanced after antibiotics, probiotics can enhance your health.
