Get a Good Gut to lose the Gut

Conventional methods for weight loss are not giving you the whole picture. 

Nearly 600 million people worldwide are predicted to be affected by diabetes by the year 2035 with about 21.1 million affected in 2001. This is a huge jump. 

Metabolic syndrome is central or visceral obesity with insulin resistance, high blood pressure, elevated triglycerides, reduced high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol level and a pro-inflammatory, prothrombotic milieu. Another words - You are in deep sh*t. 

These are major health challenges that have not been successfully met by the modern medicine  

Most conventional approaches to weight loss put a full focal lens on diet and exercise. People struggling with obesity hear all too often that their weight loss and insulin regulation requires solely a lower caloric intake and more exercise. This can be very frustrating because at the end of the day sometimes it just isn't enough, but this could be caused by gastrointestinal dysbiosis

Gut microbes could be causing your difficulty to lose weight, increasing your chances of obesity and lowering your insulin resistance. Studies have shown that obese people contain higher amounts of certain microbial populations in the gut microbiota then lean people. Lower levels of Bifidobacterium exist in obese people even in infancy for children who go on to have childhood obesity. 

To combat this during your journey through the weight loss process, probiotics can be the answer you've been searching for. Helpful probiotics include Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. gasseri, L. plantarus, L. rhamnosus and a mix of the Bifidobacterium species. 

Taking these probiotics while dieting and exercising has been shown to significantly reduce BMI and increase weight loss. 

Try taking probiotics or introducing a probiotic yogurt into you diet plan. It could make all the difference. I recommend Xymogen's ProbioMax DF (Dairy Free) each day. 

Order Xymogen

Obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome are all affected by gastrointestinal dysbiosis. This could reframe how we view these diseases and treat them.
