Sending the Right Signals: Tame Your Appetite with Spore Probiotics
It’s so hard to avoid weight gain over the holidays – that’s why so many of us end the year weighing more than we want to.
Luckily, there’s a very simple way to minimize weight gain during the cookie-and-cocktail season and jumpstart weight loss when you’re ready to shed those holiday pounds.
All you need is high-quality spore probiotics to trigger the right signals… the ones that shut down your appetite and turn off those overpowering cravings that tempt you to eat even after your stomach is full. Those same probiotics help rev up your metabolism, and switch your body from fat-storing to fat-burning mode, making it that much easier to sidestep weight gain and weight loss.
Tackling the “Hunger Hormones”
Your appetite gets controlled by two hormones: ghrelin and leptin. And when either one – or both – falls out of balance, it can set off an uncontrollable overeating spree.
Ghrelin sparks your appetite, sending off “I’m hungry” signals that drive you to eat. Your stomach produces ghrelin to tell your brain that you need food. Ghrelin’s main jobs include:
- Stimulating your appetite
- Increasing your food intake
- Promoting more fat storage
When ghrelin levels are high, you keep eating… and that can lead to unwanted holiday weight gain.
Leptin plays an even bigger role in appetite and weight management, taking a more long-term big-picture role. The fat cells in your body produce leptin – so when you have enough fat stores, your brain is supposed to get a “stop eating” message, but that doesn’t always work. Many people develop leptin resistance, so that “stop” message never reaches its target. Without that signal, your brain thinks you’re starving… and tells you to keep eating.
So how can you get these two hunger hormones to behave? The answer lies in your microbiome, the mix of trillions of bacteria that live in your gut. When beneficial bacteria – probiotics – are in control, they turn those hormones on and off at the right times, so you eat only when you’re actually hungry.
Probiotics Send the Right Signals
Proper ghrelin and leptin signals depend on a healthy microbiome – and that means a gut where the good bacteria outnumber the bad, and the right strains of good bacteria are in charge. The best bacteria for this job are spore probiotics that bring healthy balance to your gut.
When your microbiome is perfectly balanced, those probiotics:
- send a “shut-off” signal to ghrelin when it’s time to stop eating
- increase leptin levels after meals to help you feel satisfied longer
- recondition your metabolism encourage fat burning and discourage unnecessary fat storage
And that’s just a taste of how spore probiotics help keep your appetite and your weight under control…
Burn More Fat with Butyrate
It’s not a household name… yet… but butyrate holds the key to superior fat burning. This short chain fatty acid (SCFA) has become a darling of weight loss researchers. Butyrate, along with its relatives propionate and acetate, reprograms your body to switch on fat-burning genes and switch off fat-storing genes.
Those SCFAs work together to change how your body handles fat, starting with the way you absorb fat from the foods you eat. Absorbing and creating less fat while you burn more fat – that’s the perfect recipe for losing weight and keeping it off. And SCFAs have also been shown to:
- improve insulin sensitivity
- help balance blood sugar
- activate a special metabolism “switch” called AMPK
- inhibit pathogenic bacteria
- protect against leaky gut
And the only way to boost your body’s SCFA levels is with beneficial bacteria, including the four unique strains of spore probiotics in Just Thrive. In fact, studies have shown a 40% increase in SCFA production from those specific strains.
The SCFA Conversion Bonus
It takes dietary fiber to make SCFAs… another good reason to make sure you’re getting plenty of fiber in your diet.
But when the wrong bacteria are in charge, they hijack that fiber and turn it into hydrogen and methane gas… and that means bloating and flatulence for you.
Transforming the makeup with your microbiome with beneficial spore probiotics eliminates that uncomfortable issue. That’s because probiotics convert fiber into SCFAs instead, bringing you a double bonus: no gassy aftereffect AND lots of fat-busting power.
