Friendly Bacteria Help Keep You Slimmer in Your Sleep

Imagine if you gained 29 pounds a year – every year. At that rate, a 175-pound man would double his weight in just 6 years!

According to researchers at the University of Iowa (UI), at least one common drug has the potential to do just that. By depressing activity of gut microbes… which control your resting metabolic rate.

Their sample drug lowered resting metabolic rate by 16% – which translates to about a 29-pound per-year weight increase in an average human.4

How to Enlist Billions of “Secret” Health-Boosters

Matchmakers used to say, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Little did they know their advice on romance would one day apply to health. Because recent research suggests your heart will be better off when you enlist billions of “secret” health-boosters.

Yogurt for Healthy Blood Pressure?

You probably know yogurt containing live bacteria can improve your digestive health. But your heart health, too?

According to several studies reviewed in an American Heart Association journal, yes. Scientists looked at a group of small, high-quality studies and found…

• Blood pressure dropped in people who regularly ate foods with live “friendly” bacteria. Taking a probiotic supplement also worked.

• The effect was strongest in people with high blood pressure.

• Drops in blood pressure were only seen in people getting at least 1 billion live cultures per day.1 (That’s easier than you might think!)

Of course, most yogurt products deliver an unhealthy dose of sugar… or fairly small numbers of live bacteria. Plain yogurts are better… but many people don’t like the sour taste.

Which is too bad, because here’s another good reason to add probiotics to your daily diet…

Probiotics Help Control Blood Fats and “Good” Cholesterol

Scientists in Texas discovered the makeup of your “gut flora” effects the levels of triglycerides (blood fats) and “good” cholesterol circulating in your blood. And in how much fat your body carries.

“Gut flora” is just what doctors call the bacteria living in your intestinal tract. And the makeup of these tiny communities can change fat, triglyceride and HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels by 4% – 6%.2

That may not sound like much, but 5% less body fat could make the difference between being obese or just overweight. Just 5% higher HDL cholesterol could be enough to keep your arteries clear. Basically, every little bit helps.

So keeping a healthy mix of bacteria in your gut can make a big difference. Even to your heart.

What you feed your gut flora can make a big difference, too.

Fight Aging With the Right Recipes

Bacon is everywhere these days. Even in ice cream sundaes! It’s the darling of trendy chefs everywhere. And everybody loves it.

Everybody but the friendly bacteria in your gut, that is. They hate it. And it’s not just bacon. They don’t like anything even remotely resembling lard.

On the other hand, nasty bacteria – the kind that can make you sick – love lard. They suck it up like candy… and spew out chemicals that irritate your cells.

Doctors in Sweden fed mice one of two diets. One group ate a diet hard in lard-like fats. The other group ate a diet high in Omega-3s – the fats found in oily fish.

After 11 weeks, the two groups’ gut flora was vastly different. The lard group showed signs of widespread system irritation – which is linked to heart trouble, joint pain, and many other problems linked to aging. These mice also became less responsive to insulin – the hormone that moves sugar out of your blood.

On the other hand, the fish oil group had a healthier gut flora profile. They also didn’t have the systemic irritation problems found in the lard group.

The Swedish team found clear differences in the gut flora of their subjects. The fish oil group showed an increase in a friendly type of bacteria linked to better blood sugar processing and improved weight control.3

Another recent study underscores how much your gut flora can help you control weight.

Imagine if you gained 29 pounds a year – every year. At that rate, a 175-pound man would double his weight in just 6 years!

Their sample drug lowered resting metabolic rate by 16% – which translates to about a 29-pound per-year weight increase in an average human.4

Now this may sound like bad news… but it has a good side. Now that the UI team has shown how gut flora can control your metabolism, they’re now looking for a way to safely speed it up using gut flora.

And that could mean losing weight almost “by magic.” As I mentioned earlier, studies have already revealed small changes in your gut flora can cut body fat. This new knowledge could raise the ante.

Imagine if taking a safe and simple probiotic could make pounds seem to melt off. We may now be one step closer to that reality.

Meanwhile, Swedish doctors have shown yet another way probiotics can boost your health.

Bolstering Your Antioxidant Defenses

Glutathione is one of your body’s most important antioxidants. It also helps defend cells against heavy metals and helps maintain vitamins C and E in their active forms. Glutathione has many other functions… but you can probably see its key to staying healthy.

Using an animal model, researchers at Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology have shown gut flora regulate levels of this critical antioxidant.5 Just a few months later, doctors in the Middle East tested this finding in humans.

The Middle Eastern team tested primarily for the effect of probiotics on mood. But they also measured insulin levels… levels of CRP – a risk factor for heart trouble… and glutathione.

They gave 3 probiotic strains to a group of adults suffering the blues. After 8 weeks, the volunteers felt more upbeat, their insulin and CRP levels were down, and their glutathione levels jumped by more than 20%.6

And here’s the even better news…

You Can Get All 3 Probiotic Strains That Led to These Results

Balancing the friendly bacteria in your gut may be easier than you think. The strains the Middle Eastern doctors used are 3 of the 6 probiotic strains found in Best Life Herbals’ Super Flora Plus.
