Acidophilus May Aid in Weightloss

Results from recent research indicate that specific probiotic derivates have a satiety (appetite suppressant) effect. It is too early to draw any definitive conclusions; however, if the on-going project defines a link between probiotics and satiety, consumers will have a groundbreaking new, means to help them maintain a healthy weight or lose weight with Probiotics.

Food Sources of Acidophilus

Common food sources of L. acidophilus include yogurt and fermented soy products, such as miso and tempeh.

Yogurt is a cultured milk product, made by adding certain “good” bacteria to milk, skim milk, and/or cream. It wasn’t always easy to come by. Making your own was a lengthy, complicated process. Today, yogurt is available at stores and supermarkets as well as health food stores all across America. Varieties and flavors abound, so you should have zero problem finding one suitable to your personal tastes.

Soy miso is a good source of fiber and protein and a great way to increase your overall nourishment.

Add soy miso to a soup or stir fry, treating two tablespoons of soy miso as the equivalent of approximately one-quarter cup of a legume (the category in which soybeans are classified).

Like other soy-based foods, miso can provide us with a wide variety of phytonutrients. Many of these phytonutrients can function as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory substances. Think of soy miso as a highly nutritious addition to your diet that helps maximize the health benefits of your food.

Tempeh is a widely enjoyed food made from soybeans. Tempeh is a very good source of manganese and a good source of protein, copper, phosphorus, vitamin B2 and magnesium. In addition, tempeh is a good source of monounsaturated fats.
