Perfect pill melts fat, fights disease and keeps your body young

The verdict is in… there’s an all-natural pill that’s scientifically-proven to help you lose weight. If you stick to a healthy diet, exercise and take this pill daily you’ll sculpt your body into perfect physical shape

But even if you do nothing else but take this pill — every day — you’ll still drop pounds and end up with a healthier body weight and body mass index.

What’s even more exciting is that this pill will improve your health in a bunch of other ways too. It will help you avoid diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, bipolar disorder and dementia. And, on top of all that, it can make your gut healthier, your brain sharper, your bones stronger and your skin youthful.

I know it sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. A daily probiotic can really be just that powerful.

Some doctors still scoff at the idea that probiotics really do all that people say they do. It just seems too simple. And for many years, there hasn’t been enough science to convince them otherwise. But that’s all changing.

It seems like every other day, a new scientific study comes out supporting the health benefits of probiotics. And the latest study finally confirms once and for all that probiotics help you lose weight.

Now the effect of probiotics on weight loss has been studied before. In some studies, researchers found a positive correlation between probiotic intake and weight loss, but in others, the results were inconclusive. Which is why this time, researchers from Taizhou People’s Hospital, Taizhou, China, wanted to make sure that there was no room for doubt.

They combined the findings of 25 randomized human trials, examining the relationship between probiotic consumption and body weight in over 1,900 adults. And they came to a conclusive result:  People who take probiotics do lose weight. If you’re overweight, probiotics are especially helpful in helping you drop the pounds, according to researchers.

Researchers also discovered two important tips you need to follow if you’re taking probiotics for weight loss:

  • Take them for eight weeks or longer if you want to experience any weight loss benefits.
  • Take more than one probiotic strain daily.

Previous research has shown that probiotics in the Lactobacillus family are particularly effective when it comes to weight loss. So a multi-strain probiotic supplement that includes Lactobacillus is a good place to start if you’re serious about seeing the pounds melt away.

Editor’s note: According to Dr. Michael Cutler, there are numerous ways to lose weight, get fit and stay healthy without being a slave to starvation diets, extreme workouts and dangerous diet pills — just like the probiotic tip you just read about. It’s all part of his Part-Time Health Nut Program, you can learn more about in The Part-Time Health Nut. Click to here to keep reading
