It’s one thing to look your best, and another to feel your best. Both go hand in hand, and here at Style Rave want you to be the best version of yourself and live your best healthy and fashionable life every day. In the past few years, there has been a rise in the use of probiotics in fighting bacterial imbalance within the gut microbiome which actually affects everything in our body — from mental health to weight gain/loss.

According to functional-medicine expert Frank Lipman, MD, probiotics are good bacteria that promote a healthy digestive system. They help combat harmful bacteria, aid in absorbing nutrients and proper digestion, as well as promote strong gut lining. In addition to these, probiotics also reduce infections and inflammation by enhancing the body’s immune system and help in optimizing our moods. Investing in probiotics (think yogurt, kefir, pickles, etc.) could turn your life around in more ways than one.

Check out 5 ways probiotics could benefit your well-being…

An imbalance in the bacteria in your digestive system could lead to varying health issues such as mental illnesses, digestive issues, and allergies. Introducing probiotics — which are referred to as good bacteria — into your system help balance your gut bacteria and restore it to normal, or at least near-normal levels.

#2. Probiotics can aid in losing belly fat and overall body weight

Probiotics can help you store less fat, feel fuller for a longer period of time, burn calories faster, and so on by increasing the levels of certain hormones such as GLP-1. A study showed dieting women who took Lactobacillus rhamnosus for 3 months lost 50% more weight than women who didn’t take a probiotic.

#3. Probiotics help improve mental health

Recent studies show a correlation between a person’s gut health and their mood and mental health. An increasing number of health experts suggest using probiotics to create a balance of good and bad bacteria in your digestive tract. This can help with mental issues like anxiety, autism, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

#4. Probiotics help boost your immune system

Certain probiotics have been proven to help boost the production of natural antibodies in the body and also boost immune cells like the natural killer cells, IgA-producing cells, and T lymphocytes. Studies have also shown that regular intake of probiotics reduces both the likelihood and duration of respiratory infections.

#5. Probiotics help in the treatment of diarrhea

Diarrhea sometimes kick-off after one has taken antibiotics which can affect the balance of good and bad bacteria. Probiotics help fight the severity of the disease and can also help prevent it. Researches show that probiotics are responsible for over 42% of reduced cases of antibiotics-induced diarrhea.
