Harness the power of the microbiome for stress-free slimming in 2018

With the cheery glow of the Christmas decorations quickly fading, many people are finding themselves faced with the daunting January weight loss regime. However, recent developments in our understanding of the human body means that the traditional January weight loss narrative is changing

Previously, people have had to rely on their own self-discipline, however, scientists have now opened new doors to stress-free slimming by harnessing the power of the microbiome.

The human microbiome is the collection of hundreds of microorganism species, which reside in our bodies, mainly bacteria in the gut. The body works hand-in-hand with the gut microbiome, with the diet giving microbes the nutrients they need in order to grow while they reciprocate with essential nutrients such as short chain fatty acids and vitamins.

The cross-talk between the two, jointly affects a range of metabolic activities throughout the body, playing a crucial role in our physical wellbeing.

Research is rapidly revealing the extent of the microbiome’s impact on our health, and has revolutionised the way scientists are understanding and approaching disease, with conditions from obesity and digestive problems to heart disease linked with altered gut communities.

By using targeted pre- and probiotics to modulate the microbiome, and restore its normal balance, science is increasingly able to provide a natural, non-pharmaceutical approach to health management.

This is especially good news for those who overindulged a little this Christmas, as microbiome engineering has now delivered an effective solution to weight control that helps to accelerate and sustain slimming without the self-denial.

Developed by world leading scientists in the microbiome and nutrition, SlimBiome, is a unique patented formulation of ingredients, which supports hunger-free dieting.

Restoring the gut’s ideal balance to provide low-maintenance body confidence, SlimBiome uses unique microbiome modulation science, as well as a patented formulation of natural ingredients to stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract.

This affects regulation of appetite, with an expert blend of prebiotics and dietary fibres assisting a longer-lasting feeling of fullness and trace minerals enhancing the body’s use of insulin to support metabolism. By carefully maintaining blood sugar levels, SlimBiome helps to lessen food cravings and boosts calorie burning, reducing calorie intake by up to 20%.

Importantly, SlimBiome not only helps people to lose weight, but also to keep it off by promoting a healthy gut and body. Its fresh take on nutrition steers away from the traditional slimming regimes based on abstinence and restriction which, while they may achieve short-term results, are rarely sustainable and do little for individuals’ self-esteem.

While 30% of New Year slimming resolutions fail by February, SlimBiome encourages the positive, non-combative relationship with food that is vital for long-term weight control.

SlimBiome’s progressive weight management support is commercially available through The Healthy Weight Loss Company’s delicious GoFigure range of meal replacement shakes and natural snack bars.

Made from real, whole-food ingredients and packed with healthy nutrients from proteins, probiotics, green vegetables and fruit to spirulina, herbs, spices, seeds and MCT oils (which help to burn fat), these award-winning products are suitable for vegetarians, gluten-free and low in saturated fat.

The GoFigure range is scientifically proven to help users lose and keep off weight without hunger, with customer feedback showing that 100% of those who used the products over a continued period lost weight, 100% reported a reduce food intake, 93% reported that using the GoFigure range led to reduced snacking and a further 83% reported feeling less hungry.
