Returning to our good habits and getting back to a healthy weight are goals many of us share as we start the new year. In addition to staying active, drinking plenty of water and eating the right foods, research has shown that a diet rich in both probiotics and prebiotics supports healthy weight management.
Probiotics are the friendly microbes found in the human gut that promote digestive and immune health. Prebiotics, by definition, are non-digestible (or partially digestible) food ingredients—mainly fiber—known to support the growth of probiotics in the gut. Together, they offer a winning combination that can help you maintain a healthy weight.
HOW DO PROBIOTICS AND PREBIOTICS SUPPORT A HEALTHY WEIGHT?
One study involving nearly 2,000 healthy adults found that adding more probiotics to the diet was linked to weight loss as well as a reduction in body mass index (BMI). In addition, study participants lost even more weight when they consumed multiple types of probiotic bacteria, and on a regular basis.
Another study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating a diet rich in prebiotic foods also supports healthy weight management. Over a ten-year period, adults who ate the most prebiotic foods were less likely to put on excess pounds over time, even when taking into account other diet and lifestyle factors.
Researchers believe that because prebiotic-rich foods help feed the good bacteria in the gut, it triggers the production of short-chain fatty acids, which in turn release hormones that help control appetite.
