Probiotics’ Effect on Sugar Cravings Discussed in New Article by

Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

In a new article from the author discusses how probiotics and probiotic supplements are effective in curbing sugar cravings. Probiotics are the microscopic organisms that defend, or support against, over 170 disease and health conditions; most of what probiotics do start in the digestive system. The digestive system is closely connected with the immune system; with nearly 80% of all immune function starting in the stomach and intestines. This includes releasing hormones that curb the craving for sugar, this is where probiotics are proving to be very effective.

The article details how probiotics, especially Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria like L.Acidophilus, L.Bifidus, L.Plantarum, B. Lactis thrive in a healthy digestive system. Among the many ways these probiotics support health is through reducing cravings for sugar and sweets. While researchers are still researching how probiotics reduce the cravings for sugar, they hypothesize it is closely related to bacteria’s need to feed on prebiotics; prebiotics are carbohydrates that serve as food for probiotics.

Researchers are finding that people living in civilized countries are more frequently experiencing health issues directly related to a lack of probiotics in their system. This lack of probiotics is directly related to the western diet, and is the result of excess sugars, artificial sweeteners, processed foods, pesticides and pollution.

Scientists now have evidence that consuming probiotic supplements results in greater weight loss when compared to non-probiotic users, a direct result of probiotics ability to decrease sugar cravings. Supplementing with probiotics has demonstrated a significant decrease in sugar cravings in as little as four days, this kills of harmful microorganisms and results in weight loss.
