Probiotics and Weight Loss

We are more medicated, overweight, and stressed-out than ever before. Aside from lack of activity and bigger portions of food, many of us unknowingly battle with digestive issues, which can impact weight loss efforts as well. The gut controls our overall health and is ultimately the control center of our body. Imbalanced gut health can impact a person's overall well-being and have a negative effect on the quality of life. Symptoms of irregularity or imbalanced gut health include bloating and heaviness, specifically in the abdominal area.

There are a number of ways to maintain a healthy digestive system, such as drinking lots of water, exercising and eating high-fiber foods. However, sometimes that is not enough to maintain a healthy gut, and that is where adding probiotics come into play. Probiotics is comprised of good bacteria and can be found in supplements and fermented foods, such as yogurt, kimchi and sauerkraut.

Benefits of probiotics include: improved digestive health, heart health and immune function. Furthermore, among improved skin, boost in moods, and more regular digestion, weight loss has also been identified as a potential benefit of adding probiotics into your diet. With these pros (not to mention, I tend to suffer from inflammation and bloating a lot), I decided to include probiotics in my daily routine throughout my journey. After trying several kinds, I finally found one that not only aids in digestive health but also helps with elevating moods (which is perfect for my anxiety)! The probiotic is made by Jetson.

Since diversity of strains is crucial in achieving gut health, the formulations provided by Jetson change every season with least 20 strains in one subscription. The best thing for your gut is exposure to as many strains as possible and Jetson rotates its' strains every season to deliver just that! Not only that, but every month, a new bottle is delivered fresh to your door, making it convenient as well. I like this particular probiotic because it is preservative + gluten free, vegan, and non-GMO.

As you can see, probiotics have a host of benefits and can even assist in your weight loss efforts when combined with a healthy, balanced diet and exercise.
