Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2009
Americans are no strangers to the obesity epidemic and have been earnestly looking for a healthy solution.
But a new trend is hitting the $50 billion dollar weight loss industry—dietary supplements containing probiotics, beneficial bacteria that help maintain the natural balance of organisms (microflora) in the intestines. These “good gut bugs” are gaining in popularity as an effective way to provide digestive relief, but also to help prevent that growing waistline most Americans are now synonymous with. Recent clinical trials have found not only that one's weight is related to the microorganisms in his or her gut, but that people who suffer from obesity have an imbalance of bad bacteria in their guts.
Probiotic supplement manufacturer Natren has produced an innovative new take on the old dieter’s aide standby—Healthy Tummy. These chewable probiotic wafers help alleviate pesky cravings, control hunger, and normalize your moods. Because they work with your body instead of against it, those troublesome side effects common with other weight loss products like bloating, diarrhea, and constipation are not present with Healthy Tummy.
Healthy Tummy actually polices the intestines with organisms that break down food, and therefore helps keep you fuller for longer, while maximizing your nutrient absorption. Each wafer contains one billion CFUs (colony-forming units) of Lactobacillus bulgaricus, LB-51 strain in a fast-acting, chewable form. This probiotic works as a dietary aide by helping to produce natural enzymes to allow the body to break down lactose, complex carbohydrates and proteins.
Healthy Tummy is flavored with all-natural beet fructose, which has an exceptionally low glycemic index of 20. It has a genuine French vanilla ice cream flavor that will satisfy a sweet tooth and helps calm sugar cravings. At only 5 calories per wafer, it is a reasonable and healthy treat.
Endorsed by celebrities, professional athletes, and personal trainers everywhere, Healthy Tummy will soon gain notoriety. Famous fitness personality, Joanie Greggains of radio station KGO San Francisco says of the product, “I recommend Natren's Healthy Tummy with a probiotic benefit of 1 Billion CFUs per wafer to anyone looking to lose or maintain their weight. Probiotics perform many important functions including assisting in digestion--helping our bodies to better absorb nutrients and regulating caloric intake by signaling to the brain that we are full and have had enough!! Natren's Healthy Tummy is a link to permanent weight loss and ultimate health.”
Natasha Trenev, co-founder of Natren and probiotics researcher, says, “Our chewable probiotics get to the root of weight problems by helping to curb cravings, calming dieter’s blues, and creating a healthy digestive environment. Healthy Tummy provides a way to not only fight a sweet tooth when it occurs, but to discourage it from happening in the future.”
Because Healthy Tummy’s probiotic bacteria are live, perishable organisms, they need to be kept cold to preserve potency. Natren goes to great lengths (shipping in both dry and blue ice, for example) to guarantee the number of bacteria present at the time of consumption. In fact, Natren is the only probiotic manufacturer to guarantee potency of each strain listed.
Located in Westlake Village, California, Natren is the world’s leading manufacturer of naturally-occurring, beneficial probiotics specifically formulated for adults, youths, infants and pets. Founded by Natasha Trenev, an internationally recognized authority on probiotics, the company was born out of the Continental Yogurt Company, which is credited for introducing healthy, live-culture, natural, Bulgarian-style yogurt to American supermarkets in the 1960s. Natren’s multi-strain, probiotic supplement, Healthy Trinity and 70 other probiotic products, are available at Whole Foods and the Vitamin Shoppe, other leading natural foods retailers, pharmacies and may also be ordered directly from http://www.natren.com or 1-866-4-NATREN.
