Probiotic administration is associated with health benefits on gut barrier integrity and immunological functions of the gastrointestinal tract. Recently, probiotic consumption was proposed to reduce fat mass and body weight in rodents (Lee HY. et al. 2006; Hamad EM. et al. 2009). Changes in energy metabolism might be involved in the effects of probiotics on weight control.
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of the consumption of a probiotic formulation on energy balance in overweight subjects.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans.
