Appetite-suppressing probiotic helps overweight people lose weight
ClpB, a probiotic molecule, mimics alpha-MSH, which reduces hunger.
At the Targeting Microbiota 2022 conference in Paris last week, researchers reported that the bacteria had comparable benefits on overweight adults.
The researchers advised 212 overweight adults to cut their calorie consumption by 20% for three months.
Half of the participants took H. alvei pills twice a day for three months.
At two and three months, probiotic users felt far more satisfied than placebo users.
Rakotonirina believes probiotic effects vary by genetics, gut flora, and metabolism.
