The promise of slimming on cabbage soup and lemon detox diets has been a faddy part of diet culture for too long.
Fad diets are often promoted with exaggerated claims like rapid weight loss or detoxification. At best, fad diets may offer new and engaging ways to reduce calorie intake, but at worst they can be dangerously restrictive and even cause malnutrition!
ShapeLine from Pro-Ven Probiotics (www.provenprobiotics.co.uk) offers those looking to lose weight in a gradual and healthy manner – the right support for their gut health.
New research has shown that a new probiotic from Pro-Ven Probiotics has significant and guaranteed weight management capabilities.
In the largest clinical study of its kind on the effect of probiotics on weight loss, (referred to as the ShapeLine Study), participants of all ages saw a reduction in their weight, waist circumference and BMI after taking one Pro-Ven Probiotics ShapeLine capsule every day, for six months.
The results are even more impressive as participants were not placed on a calorie-controlled diet and made no changes to lifestyle or exercise regimes, indicating that all of the weight reduction benefits were as a result of the probiotic.
ShapeLine is particularly beneficial for those who want to lose weight over a longer period of time, in a healthy and sustained way, without having to make any changes to either dietary intake or exercise patterns.
The two ShapeLine studies show, weight loss of between 3 and 7lbs, a reduction in waist circumference of 1-2 cm and a reduction in BMI by 1-4%. Interestingly, results were most significant for people over 50 where an average weight loss of 4-5lbs and 2% reduction in BMI was achieved.
As well as this, those with a higher cholesterol had an average weight loss of 5lbs. Over 50’s, with higher cholesterol had an average weight loss of 7lbs and a significant reduction in cholesterol levels.
Statistical analysis of the research indicates that the weight changes, thanks to ShapeLine, are consistent and repeatable and the probiotic will also support those looking to prevent rebound weight gain, following weight loss.
In an era when it seems the majority of people are battling their weight in one way or another, the news that taking a daily probiotic can help achieve weight loss, as well as providing all other benefits of good bacteria, whilst requiring no other changes to lifestyle, will be welcome news to many people.
Alongside impressive weight management results, the ShapeLine study also found that taking one probiotic capsule every day has impressive wellness benefits, which include a massive 40% reduction in upper respiratory tract infections (coughs and colds), a 30% reduction in headaches and improved overall wellness.
As a result of these benefits, the ShapeLine group felt better, had more energy and better mood than the group not taking ShapeLine.
The Pro-Ven ShapeLine Probiotic is available on www.provenprobiotics.co.uk , RRP £29.95 for a pack of 30 capsules.
