The Weight Loss Probiotic, The Science Behind L. gasseri

Lactobacillus gasseri or L. gasseri belongs to the Lactobacillus family of bacteria naturally found in our digestive and urinary tracts. It has been shown to suppress harmful bacteria, which, in turn, enhances immune function and aids in digestion.¹

L. gasseri has also been shown in studies to help with weight loss, especially in obese adults.² In a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, 210 obese adults were given either milk enriched with Lactobacillus gasseri or a placebo milk. After 12 weeks, the Lactobacillus group experienced an 8.5% reduction in abdominal fat compared to the placebo group.

Most likely L. gasseri plays an important role in the metabolism and/or digestion of fats but more research needs to done to determine its exact impact on the gut microbiome.
