The secret to a flatter looking belly? Probiotics!

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria in your body that serve a number of functions. They can stimulate immunity, helping you combat colds and allergies. They may also help prevent weight problems—some studies have shown a link between low levels of good gut bacteria and obesity. But perhaps probiotics’ biggest claim to fame is in the digestion department. They can also support healthy digestion by reducing the quantity of bad bacteria in the gut. Plus, probiotics can help reduce belly bloat, which is often caused by a lack of good bacteria in your gut.

So what foods contain probiotics? Fermented dairy foods like yogurt, kefir products and aged cheeses are all sources of this powerful bacteria. You can also get probiotics from non-dairy foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, tempeh and soy beverages. If these sources of probiotics don’t tempt your taste buds, Nutrisystem’s FreshStart Shake™ mixes, packed with protein and fiber to keep you feeling fuller longer, plus 22 vitamins and minerals, are made with a BC30, a patented probiotic developed by Ganeden to support digestive health and help bust that belly bloat.

Get all the belly benefits of these delicious shakes first thing in the morning when you make these three belly-busting breakfast bowls:
