Gut Bacteria can help you lose weight and decrease the amount of fat absorbed by the gut – NewScientist (mag article)

Researchers found that replacing the bacteria in mouse intestines with human gut flora decreased the amount of fat absorbed by the gut.
- After 12 weeks, volunteers had lost an average of 1kg and scans revealed that they had lost 4.6% of their “bad”, visceral fat, which surrounds internal organs and is implicated in metabolic syndrome, and 3.3% of their subcutaneous fat.
- The milk drunk by half of the group was enriched with lactobacillus gasseri.
