Pro-biotics to help burn execessive fat?

Patient

Q: What is the best supplements to take to help with weight loss? Ive heard that having pro-biotics really helps with burning of excess Fat

Doctor

A:   Unfortunately there is no"best" supplement for weight loss.

In order to burn more calories in the long run, your muscle mass needs to be increased. Thus a program that incorporates muscle strenthning will lead to the best weight loss results.

Supplements are only beneficial if you have dietary restrictions that prevent you from getting nutrients from food sources.
