Lallemand Health Solutions’ rising star L. rhamnosus HA-114 is revealed to improve eating and mood-related behaviour in overweight adults who were undergoing diet-induced weight loss in a new breakthrough study
The results of this recent randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial highlight the beneficial effects of this probiotic intervention for behavioural and psychological traits when engaging in a calorie reduced diet. A healthier metabolic phenotype was also associated with probiotic supplementation. These results reaffirm the applicability of the brain-gut axis concept and demonstrate the influence of this probiotic strain on psychological well-being among participants engaging in a caloric-restriction intervention.
The probiotic supplementation could favour wellness and facilitate adherence during a diet-based weight reduction programme. The probiotic improved self-control behaviours (binge-eating, hunger, food cravings, etc.), which could lead to a better long-term adherence to dietary recommendations and higher loss. This is especially significant, knowing that for 45.7% of consumers, losing weight is a challenge because we are prone to self-defeating actions, such as enjoying treats and moments of indulgence, and that 28.9% of consumers think their latest attempt to lose weight was unsuccessful.
