New York, NY (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
A new report and video from Health News Wires titled “Probiotic and Bacteria in the Gut May Determine Risk for Obesity” details how the levels of probiotics and bacteria in the gut may indicate a person’s risk for obesity.
The type of bacteria in your gut may determine if you become overweight or even obese. Recent findings indicate people who gained the most amount of weight seemed to lack a specific bacteria in their gut and digestive tract.
There is a strong correlation between bacteria’s ability to metabolize food and the overall metabolism of the person in which they live. When a person becomes obese, it may be an indication of poor gut health.
Using these findings, researchers are hopeful a test can be developed to detect low-levels of bacteria in the gut. Once developed, this test should indicate a person’s risk for obesity and obesity related diseases, including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and heart disease.
“We know that probiotics are essential for digestive and immune health,” said Michael Healey of Health News Wire. “These new findings indicate that supplementing with probiotics and digestive enzymes are essential in preventing obesity and obesity-related diseases.”
