Provita Probiotics and weight loss



Provita Probiotics.

John Patrick Hernandez Lee


One of the leading health issues in society today; is the growing number of obese people and obesity.

I remember when I had my pre-employment medical examination. The doctor was so prejudiced and bias that simply because I weighed 115 kgs.

He did not provide me any clearance and wanted me to seek and consult a second opinion.

An endocrinologist said that I might be overweight; due to a problem with my thyroid glands or something.

What he did not know. I did not anymore tell him since I did not have; a face-to-face with him when releasing my medical results was.

I already lost weight with my current weight during the medical examination. How? I had to simply take in Provita Probiotics.



Why Probiotics?


If we investigate our digestive system. It is a product of several microorganisms that can be simply classified into good and bad bacteria.

To understand the effects of probiotics on weight loss. You need to start with an understanding of the key players.

There are two first families of bacteria in the gut:

The good Bacteroidetes and the not-so-good Firmicutes. “Lean individuals have a higher proportion of bacteria from the Bacteroidetes family. While obese individuals have more from the Firmicutes family,” Dr. Bulsiewicz explains. “

This means that obese individuals carry gut microbes. That is design to efficiently extract the bad parts of our food. Namely from fat and sugar, and the implication is that by modulating our gut flora. To maximize Bacteroidetes and minimize Firmicutes.

We can optimize healthy energy harvesting from our food and kick our obesity problem to the curb.” Put another way: “If we choose the right blend of bacteria, the scale can tip in our favor,” he says.

Provita, as a probiotic supplement, composes of several components. That all aid in improving our digestive system and reduce fat in our body, especially belly fat. These components include:



Image result for Bifidobacterium Lactis –



Bifidobacterium Lactis –


Helps takes the nutrients we ingest in food into our body. It also helps in preventing the increase of bad bacteria.

A study conducted in 2015 showed that fermented milk containing B. lactic may improve gastrointestinal symptoms and well-being. And it concludes that this was true because of changes it created in gut motility, hypersensitivity, and even leaky gut.

Another study demonstrated that when people took a strain of B. lactic, called BB-12, in conjunction with Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG. They had decreased amounts of dental plaque and reduced inflammation in the mouth.

This has led us to increase understanding of how oral health tie to gut health, and why having a healthy oral microbiome is important.

One recent article suggested that disruption of the gut microbiome in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Extends to the oral cavity and that looking at the oral microbiome could be helpful in evaluating ASD status.

This is just one example of how oral health is tied to gut health and overall health, as well. Another fascinating study demonstrated that B. lactic reduced fat mass and glucose intolerance in mice with diabetes and obesity.



It discerns that it reduces levels of the pro-inflammatory substance.


Called lipopolysaccharides (LPS) from bacteria that are associated with the leaky gut; was one of the mechanisms by which this occurred.

We already know that an imbalance of bacteria in the gut can be associate; with a variety of different conditions and diseases.

So, this is a great example of how a good guy can add to the ecosystem; and help tip the balance in favor of health, rather than disease.

In this case, this probiotic helped improve blood sugar balance and weight. A strain of B. lactic, known as HN019, has been shown to have a significant impact on those with metabolic syndrome.

This probiotic had beneficial effects on inflammation. Nitric oxide metabolites, and antioxidant measurements; and the authors of the study stated that if their results confirm. Supplementation with this probiotic should consider further.

Furthermore, it’s fascinating how adding a probiotic strain to your lifestyle routine; can create such improvement in one’s health.

It goes to show you how even a slight imbalance between the good bugs and bad bugs. In your gut can cause and contribute to so many different medical conditions and symptoms.



Bifidobacterium Bifidum –


It lowers cholesterol levels in the body. Although there is not as much research done on such strain of probiotics, certain researches reveal that Bifidobacterium Bifidum. Shows promise in treating the following conditions.

Infection by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Restoration of intestinal bacteria after chemotherapy; constipation, lung infections, ulcerative colitis, certain kinds of diarrhea, necrotizing enterocolitis.

A type of infection in the intestinal lining caused by harmful bacteria. And paucities, a complication of surgery for ulcerative colitis

These are just the first two components found in Provita Probiotics. We have not further gone into the other components as this may come up to be a very long note.

We would just like to educate people on the powerful effects of Provita Probiotics. Being a probiotic supplement that has 16 strains or types of probiotics.

In the market that all provide us with the needed benefit of improving our GUT or digestive system and promoting weight loss.

Further studies by health and medical practitioners reveal that Probiotics have the following effects:



Image result for Increased Fat Elimination.



Increased Fat Elimination.


For some dieters, removing consumed fat from the body before; it has a chance to do damage would be a great help.

Probiotics may increase the amount of dietary fat that deliver by the body through feces. According to the results of a study published; in Lipids in Health and Disease by Japanese researchers.

Fat consumed by the subjects was not as easily digested for use or for storage by the body. In those who were given certain probiotics, resulting in the excess consume fat being eliminated; by the body through the digestive tract.

As the fat was being emulsified through normal bodily processes. Fat droplets were found to be larger in those who were given the specific probiotics.

While the mechanism of action is unknown currently. Perhaps the larger droplets of fat are not able to be used as easily by the body, allowing them to release as waste.



Diminished Appetite.


Those who have a hard time losing those extra pounds. Because they feel hungry all the time might want to think about using probiotics for weight loss.

It seems that certain probiotics may influence how satisfied you feel; by regulating the way your body reacts to a hormone called leptin.

Leptin produces fat cells to let the brain know that there is enough stockpile away for energy. The brain can then signal the body to reduce appetite.

However, those who are obese may develop what is known as leptin resistance. Where the brain can no longer properly identify those signals when leptin levels get way too high.

Research in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that probiotic supplementation. Helped leptin signals to reach the brain, allowing subjects to feel more satisfied after eating. In turn, this can help individuals to eat fewer calories to better help with weight loss.



Decreased Fat Storage.


While certain probiotics have been shown to move some of the extra fat that consumes; out of the body before it can cause problems. It appears that probiotics may help to reduce the amount of additional fat that store in the body.

The reduction of increased fat stored occurred even with excess food intake. Research by Osterberg, et al, published in the journal Obesity.  Show that those who were set a certain probiotic gain less weight; while eating too many calories differentiates from those who were given a placebo.

Another study shows how the good bacteria of the gut may affect this. Aaronson, et al, in a study published in PLOS ONE, found that a certain protein; can help to prevent the accumulation of fat within adipose tissue.

This protein increase with a proper balance of the microbiome in the gut. Effectively reducing how much consumed fat get a deposit for later use.

While these studies did not necessarily show the benefits of probiotics for weight loss. It showed that the use of probiotics can help with weight management; by reducing the number of extra calories save as fat.



Reduced Body Fat.


Another way that probiotics have been shown as useful regards body weight. Is it their ability to reduce the amount of fat that is currently being deposit by the body?

This process begins in the gut, according to research by Omar, et al, that publish in the Journal of Functional Foods.

By increasing the number of specific good bacteria in the intestines using supplementation of probiotics. Researchers were able to induce a change in body composition in the subjects.

The probiotics changed the way the body utilized food for energy; allowing for an increase in the use of existing fat stores for fuel.

Individuals noted a decrease in body fat, specifically around the organs. The probiotics given in the study helped subjects to enjoy more weight loss, a healthier BMI, and loss of belly fat.



Image result for Metabolism



Enhanced Metabolism.


By equalizing the levels of beneficial bacteria that are found in the digestive tract. Probiotics can help the body to function more effectively.

The same study that showed probiotics may reduce the amount of fat that is already; stored in the body draws interest in the ability of these same probiotics to increase metabolism.

Therefore, healthy metabolism continues to use calories, even when you are not exercising.

Fat is a little more difficult for the body to digest. So many dieters find that they lose muscle over fat stores when eating a calorie-restricted diet.

Because probiotics may change how the body utilizes macronutrients for fuel. These beneficial bacteria can help the body to burn fat for fuel rather than the protein stored in muscle.

Those who take probiotics with their healthy diet and exercise program; may enjoy a higher calorie burn even during inactive periods.

Finally, so how do probiotics help? Well, personally, my first month of use has allowed me to lose 15 kgs; coming from a weight of 125 kgs to now 110 kgs and it does not stop there.

I noticed that I don’t constipate, my bowel movement became regular; and I get the feeling of being content with my food intake faster compare to before.

So how do probiotics help? Well, personally, my first month of use has allowed me to lose 15 kgs. Coming from a weight of 125 kgs and now just 110 kgs and it does not stop there.
