Improves Eating and Mood-related Behaviors in Adults with Overweight During Weight Loss

Lallemand Health Solutions’ rising star L. rhamnosus HA-114 revealed to improve eating and mood-related behaviors in overweight adults who were undergoing diet-induced weight loss in a new breakthrough study.

The results of this recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial highlight the beneficial effects of this probiotic intervention for behavioral and psychological traits when engaging in a calorie reduced diet:

  • Eating behaviors: self-control/hunger, binge eating and food cravings, etc.
  • Mood behaviors: perceived stress and other mood-related behaviors

A healthier metabolic phenotype was also associated with probiotic supplementation.

The strain L. rhamnosus HA-114 supports weight management efforts by restoring the balance of eating behaviors through the brain-gut axis. The supplementation with L. rhamnosus HA-114 could favor wellness and facilitate adherence during a diet-based weight reduction program. The probiotic improved self-control behaviors which could lead to a better long-term adherence to dietary recommendations.
