Keep Belly Fat at Bay - Beat Menopause Weight Gain with Probiotics
Ugh! It happened again. You stepped on the scale, only to find that you gained five pounds overnight. What??? What did you eat?
Of course, nothing more than usual – just a seemingly healthy dinner and a snack (or two). So, where did this unwanted weight magically come from?
Well, whatever mystical fairyland it came from, it landed right on your belly region, the same place that it always seems to end up.
So, what can you do about it? Luckily, you have some options! You don't have to be a helpless victim of menopausal belly fat weight gain. Instead, you can take control of your weight (and happiness) with a little help from some “oh-so-healthy” probiotics.
Why Do You Gain Weight During Menopause?
Menopause is a never-ending game of hormonal yo-yo! You've no doubt heard all about how your hormone levels drastically drop during menopause.
And one of those crucial reproductive hormones – estrogen – in particular, can cause a number of issues, from uncomfortable sex to a non-existent sex drive. Plus, as if those two things aren't bad enough, plummeting estrogen levels also change the ways in which your body fat is stored.
Estrogen causes you to gain weight in your belly region, making it (as well as that extra Twinkie you treated yourself to last night) responsible for your extra belly fat.
What Are Probiotics?
Let’s get down to business! You've probably heard of probiotics thanks to that constantly running yogurt commercial with Jamie Lee Curtis.
But there's a reason why the yogurt people want you to choose their brand over the competitors – because probiotics really do work!
These probiotics, despite their oddly scientific name, are tiny living organisms composed of yeast and bacteria. Only instead of the harmful bacteria that makes you sick, probiotics actually help your digestive system, making it a healthier, more efficient machine.
As a result, your body will absorb more good nutrients from the foods you eat and less of the bad ones that cause you to collect those pesky mid-section pounds.
How Do Probiotics Work?
Probiotics positively affect your digestive system by whipping everything back into perfect balance. You see, when your hormones are out of whack (thank you, menopause) it effects more than just your reproductive system.
Since everything in your body is interconnected, it only makes sense that your digestive system also plays a role in your hormone production.
So, by making one system (the one that contains your stomach and intestines, for the record) work more efficiently, you can positively affect and rebalance another.
In this case, your hormones will level out slightly, and you'll be less likely to gain weight around your mid-section. See, probiotics really do work!
Losing Weight with All-Natural Methods
Don’t like lots of chemicals and preservatives? Are you more of a holistic health fan? Great! Because it's entirely possible to combat menopause-induced weight gain with creative, all-natural methods.
Sure, exercising and implementing a healthy, whole-foods diet both help, but so do probiotics, like De-Bloat Premium Multi-Strain Probiotic.
These live cultures of yeast and bacteria balance out your digestive system and help prevent menopausal weight gain.
Even better, when you incorporate them into your daily diet, you'll even shed that pesky belly fat weight that you’re better off without.
Probiotics are simple, but they really do the trick. So, be proactive, and add some probiotics to your daily diet! Trust us - your belly will thank you in more ways than one!
