Probiotics may help cut body fat levels: RCT data

Posted on November 22, 2012

Daily probiotic yogurt consumption may improve energy metabolism and reduce body fat levels by up to 4%, says results of a placebo-controlled, double-blind cross-over clinical trial in Canada.
Yogurt containing the ‘novel probiotic’ strains Lactobacillus amylovorus or Lactobacillus fermentum for six weeks was associated with significantly reduced body fat mass, with the greatest reduction seen for L. amylovorus, according to findings published in the Journal of Functional Foods.
