Does Probiotics help with weight loss?

We have to control out digestive system.  The digestive system can cause serious problems when we are not regular.  I have heard a lot about Probiotics. I have heard that it helps with the digestive system. We see commercials, but there is not a lot of scientific studies done on the product.   I have a problem with controlling my digestive system, so  I did some research on the product.  This is what I found:

Berkley Wellness wrote, “They are promoted to improve digestion, strengthen immunity, help in weight loss and even protect against periodontal disease, among other proposed benefits, as well as for general health. Will the friendly bacteria in these supplements and foods keep you healthy?”

Magee (2009) wrote, “Administration (FDA) has approved no specific health claims for probiotics. Further, the amounts of probiotics that studies have found to be beneficial vary from strain to strain and condition to condition.”  Magge (2009) also stated, “People who are acutely ill or who have a compromised immune system should be cautious about consuming probiotic products and supplements. Researchers are still trying to figure out which types of disease and illnesses should preclude the use of probiotics.”

So now we know that Probiotics can help with managing the digestive system.   You still have to eat right, exercise, and go to the doctor.  I am going to use this product because I think it will be a great supplement. Most people use it for loosing weight, but that is not what this product is supposed to be used for.  Before you buy this product for weight control, study why you should use this product.
