PROBIOTICS THE GOOD BACTERIA

Probiotics known as the good bacteria that live in our body are not only good for our digestive tract but have more important effect in our overall health such as boosting our immune system and helping us resist infections.

There is more than a hundred species of probiotics in our body offering each one its own benefits to our health. Unfortunately, stress and diet can deplete some of the probiotic populations that we should rebuild by including them in our diet.

FEELING ENERGETIC AND BURNING BODY FAT

There is a strong relation between feeling energetic and burning our body fat reserves. That’s because the body fat reserves are the main body source of energy.

Some people lose the ability to feel energetic due to their bodies not able to convert the body fat reserves into energy. Thus they see a decrease in their energy level and an increase of their fat reserves.

This dysfunction comes from the fact that the enzymes responsable for reducing the body fat reserves and converting them into energy are not doing their job properly due to different factors such as unbalanced diet and lack of exercise.

To help burn your body fat reserves and turn them into energy you should:

* Exercise many times each week,
* Increase your intake of high quality protein and fibre,
* Reduce your intake of carbohydrates.
