My Initial Thoughts
My first impression of ProbioSlim is positive, as it is a supplement that will improve your health. This sounds quite straightforward, but I have reviewed countless fitness/health supplements where manufacturers include harmful ingredients in a bid to make the supplement more powerful at bettering your physical appearance. This can come at a cost – your good health.
But with ProbioSlim being a probiotic, you may experience some of the following health benefits that have been linked with probiotics via several studies (listed in the references section). Getting a supplement probiotic is an alternative to other natural options such as yoghurts which have similar bacterial properties. However, probiotic sources such as yoghurts are often loaded with sugar and can contain dangerous sweeteners such as, Aspartame.

. Improving cholesterol (4)
. Stronger immune system (5)
Do the Ingredients in ProbioSlim Back up Their Claims?
LactoSpore® Bacillus coagulans
LactoSpore is considered the king of all probiotics. But why is this? Bacillus coagulans is unique in the sense that it is the only probiotic with spore-forming attributes. In short, spores require zero nutrients to live. Thus this bacteria can not be killed by any external source such as extremely high/low temperatures, UV radiation or other chemicals. Bacillus coagulans is also undeterred by changes in PH, enabling it to survive several body processes including the acidic environment that is caused via bile in the liver.
For this reason, Lactospore comes with no storage requirements and has a long shelf life of approximately 2 years.
Green Tea Leaf Extract
Green tea leaf extract has a rich antioxidant profile, giving you even more health benefits. Green tea leaf is also a natural stimulant, creating a thermogenesis effect within the body and increasing your core temperature. Thermogenesis revs up your metabolism, meaning you will be able to burn more calories than usual at rest, promoting fat loss. This method of elevating your BMR is my favourite lazy way to burn fat! This spike in metabolism when coupled with a calorie deficit diet will lead to consistent and healthy weight loss; improving muscle tone and reducing side effects that come with surplus fat stores, such as decreased blood flow and bad (LDL) cholesterol levels.
With green tea leaf extract being a stimulant to the central nervous system, you will experience an increase in adrenaline. With higher adrenaline output you will have greater energy levels throughout the day, and if you’re like me, your general motivation will also improve.
I am always happy to recommend a healthy supplement like ProbioSlim and with it also containing fat burning properties, it’s a win-win. Force Factor offer free samples on all their products, enabling you to try out ProbioSlim for yourself!
