Does Bio X4 help you lose weight?
That is probably one of the most frequently asked questions we receive about this popular probiotic. While we cover this question in detail in our review of the Bio X4 ingredients list, we receive this question so often that we feel it warrants its own page.
This isn’t surprising. Nucific specifically market Bio X4 as a probiotic and weight loss supplement. According to the official Nucific merchant site, Bio X4 is the most effective supplement for both gut health and weight management currently on the market.
But is this actually true?
So, let’s get right into the nitty-gritty – does Bio X4 help you lose weight? If not, why? What would a weight-loss specific probiotic look like?
Is Bio X4 effective for weight loss?
We do not think that Bio X4 should be sold as a weight loss supplement.
There it is.
Having done a thorough review of the ingredients, we really don’t think Nucific’s claims about Bio X4 promoting weight loss are justifiable in any way.
There isn’t anything in this probiotic which makes it particularly good for reducing body fat, controlling appetite, or preventing fat gain.
Now, it’s true that all probiotics can be said to help with weight management. Having a better functioning, more efficient metabolism makes dieting much easier. In several meta-analyses a healthier gut microbiome has been linked with better blood sugar control, reduced body fat, and lower incidence of metabolic illness.
But Nucific claim that Bio X4 is especially good for weight loss.
That is, they claim Bio X4 is better than other probiotics at promoting fat loss.
In our opinion, that simply isn’t true.
In reality, Bio X4 is a very mediocre probiotic; it doesn’t provide any enzymes or cultures which you don’t get from lots of other – often cheaper – gut health supplements. The only ingredients which could be said to be good for weight loss are hardly revolutionary. We get a very small serving of green tea, and a completely unproven herbal extract which has no known effect on body fat.
So does Bio X4 help with weight loss?
No more so than any other run-of-the-mill probiotic, and certainly not more than other supplements designed to promote fat loss.
