Probiotics Help New Mothers Regain Normal Weight

May 7, 2009: 10:07 AM EST
As little as one probiotic yogurt a day could help new mothers regain their normal body weight, Finnish researchers say. The University of Turku researchers said that “friendly bacteria” make it harder for the body to digest some foods and cut down on the amount of fat the body stores. Researcher Dr Kirsi Laitinen said that one year after childbirth women taking probiotics “had the lowest levels of central obesity, as well as the lowest body fat percentage” among the 256 women they tracked. The researchers are now studying to see if the children born while their mothers were taking probiotics have also benefited.
