The study included 210 Japanese people with large abdominal fat areas. They were divided into three groups and given either 200 grams (about 7 ounces) of high-probiotic yogurt, low-probiotic yogurt, or no-probiotic yogurt to eat every day for 12 weeks. The yogurts all contained equal amounts of two bacterial strains commonly used to ferment milk into yogurt. The high-probiotic yogurt provided an additional 2 billion CFU (colony forming units) of the test probiotic, Lactobacillus gasseri, per day, and the low-probiotic yogurt provided 0.2 billion CFU of L. gasseri per day.
L. gasseri is part of the family of lactic acid-producing bacteria that colonize the human intestines and are thought to provide a wide range of health benefits.
Examinations done every four weeks during the study and once four weeks after the end of the study showed that the two probiotic yogurt groups had positive changes in body composition:
The changes seen in this study were similar in both probiotic groups and were greater than reductions seen in the no-probiotic group. However, four weeks after stopping the yogurt, the benefits diminished and the differences between the probiotic yogurt groups and the no-probiotic group were lost.
The changes seen in the probiotic yogurt groups were similar to those seen in a previous study performed by the same team of researchers in which participants ate a more concentrated probiotic-fortified yogurt that provided 20 billion CFU of L. gasseri per day, leading the study authors to speculate that lower amounts of this particular probiotic may be as effective as higher amounts when it comes to reducing body and belly fat. They added that, based on their findings, "constant consumption might be needed to maintain the effect."
The study authors also noted that L. gasseri appears to have a stronger effect than regular yogurt bacteria, which were present in all of the yogurts and in greater concentrations than the L. gasseri in the probiotic-fortified yogurts.
In addition to considering a probiotic supplement, here are several ways to promote the colonization and growth of healthy intestinal bacteria:
