Obesity is one of the most prevalent human health problems and is just not a concern of shape or size. It is a serious, unignorable alarm of the body which requires medical attention.The imbalance between energy intake and expenditure, unhealthy lifestyle, and genetic variability leads to the development of obesity. Obesity can increase the risk of other diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, high blood pressure and certain cancers. Our gut is a mirror of actual body health. Gut microbiota play an important role in the regulation of fat accumulation and resultant obesity. If there is a gut microbial imbalance due to medications and changing food habits, the pathogenic bacteria take the upper hand secreting lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Elevated systemic LPS levels aggravate low-grade inflammation and insulin resistance which promotes lipogenesis and finally obesity.
The modulation of the bacterial strains in the digestive tract can help to reshape the metabolic profile both in infants and in adults. Probiotics have been shown to influence the composition of the gut microbiota, improve gut integrity and restore the microbial shifts characteristic of obesity. Probiotics help in the management of weight by restoring normal microbiota and reducing inflammation which can drive obesity.
CATAPRO is a proven probiotic combination for obesity. These probiotic strains were chosen based on their high in-vitro bile salt hydrolase (BSH) activity. BSH helps in the deconjugation of bile salts and reduces cholesterol absorption.
Adults: 1-2 capsules daily
