Probiotics 1234® is a dynamic formula containing specific bacteria strains that have been studied for weight loss and overall digestive health. It is a synbiotic formula, meaning that it contains both prebiotics and probiotics. Garcinia Cambogia is added to the mix to promote further weight loss with its active compound, Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), which has been clinically studied for its appetite suppressant properties and its ability to boost lipid metabolism.

Thin people may have a different ratio of bacteria in their gastrointestinal tract than overweight or obese people.
Evidence that gut bacteria can influence body weight, in humans, first came in 2006 (earlier animal studies found similar results). A group of researchers noticed that obesity was associated with an imbalance in the proportion of two groups of bacteria — people with a higher body weight tended to have a reduction in Bacteroidetes group and an increase in the Firmicutes (they help the body extract calories from sugars and deposit them into fat) group. They went further and found that by transplanting “obese mouse microflora” into a mouse that lacked gut bacteria, the mouse became obese. Conversely, if they transplanted bacteria from a lean mouse into a mouse without any bacteria, it became lean.
What this may mean for you is that no matter how much you diet, limit carbs, exercise, cleanse, or starve yourself, you may not experience sustained weight loss or weight management until you have sufficient amounts of the right bacteria. After all, the bacteria are the ones digesting your food before you do. If you’ve got dominant strains of bacteria in your gut that are fat-producing and fat-storing by nature, then it would seem only natural that you will produce and store more fat. Several studies show the effectiveness of supplementing with two strains in particular for weight loss and reduction of abdominal adiposity: Lactobacillus Rhamnosus and Lactobacillus Gasseri.
Garcinia Cambogia — contains Hydroxycitric Acid, an acid clinically shown to suppress the appetite. Is also shown to boost lipid metabolism.
Lactobacillus gasseri — a type of probiotic bacteria strain clinically researched for weight loss.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus — a type of probiotic bacteria strain clinically researched for weight loss.
Bifidobacterium bifidum — a type of probiotic bacteria strain commonly used for enhancing digestive health.
Lactobacillus acidophilus — a type of probiotic bacteria strain commonly used for enhancing digestive and immune health.
Oliggo-Fiber™ Instant Inulin (Chicory Root) — a soluble fiber known as the “invisible fiber,” comes from the chicory root. Inulin is recognized as a prebiotic ingredient that supports the natural, healthful bacteria (probiotics) in the lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Fructooligosaccharides — used as prebiotics. Prebiotics act as food for “good” bacteria (probiotics) in the intestine.

More than just weight loss?
Having a healthy gut means more than just not being annoyed by a little bloating or heartburn. It is central to your entire health. It is connected to everything that happens in your body. The health of your gut determines what nutrients are absorbed and what toxins, allergens and microbes are kept out, and it is directly linked to the health of the total organism. Intestinal health could be defined as the optimal digestion, absorption and assimilation of food. That is a big job that depends on many other factors. For example, the bacteria in your digestive tract are like a rainforest — a diverse and interdependent ecosystem. They must be in balance for you to be healthy.
There are approximately five hundred species and three pounds of bacteria in your digestive system; it’s a huge chemical factory that aids in digesting your food, production of vitamins, regulation of hormones, excretion of toxins and production of healing compounds that keep your gut healthy. Too many of the wrong organisms like parasites, yeasts or bad bacteria, or not enough of the good ones like lactobacillus or bifidobacteria, may lead to consequences in your health.
A way to manipulate the gut bacteria?
Prebiotics are a type of dietary fiber that the good-for-you gut bacteria are believed to love to eat — when prebiotics are eaten, your gut’s good bacteria colonies should grow and thrive. Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) is a great example of a prebiotic, naturally occurring in chicory, among other things. FOS has also been shown to help increase the absorption of calcium in the body.
