Japanese Study Finds That Probiotic Milk Reduces Abdominal Fat, Body Weight

June 15, 2010: 12:32 PM EST
A study by scientists at a Japanese milk company has found that drinking 200 grams (7 ounces) of fermented milk containing the probiotic Lactobacillus gasseri SBT2055 reduced abdominal fat and overall body weight in people “with obese tendencies.” The test group that drank the probiotic milk daily for 12 weeks experienced a 4.6 percent drop in abdominal fat, as well as reductions in body weight, body mass index, and waist and hip sizes. The control group experienced none of these benefits, the researchers said, concluding that drinking the probiotic milk has a “beneficial influence on metabolic disorders.”
