This is relevant for weight maintenance as lower calorie requirements are required to maintain a lower body weight. Interestingly, those supplemented with B420 also showed an increase in fecal short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) concentrations. SCFAs are produced by the microbiome, suggesting that B420 is influencing the microbiome. This change in SCFA concentration may also shed light on the mechanisms behind the reduced calorie intake, as SCFAs have been shown to simulate the production of gut peptides to increase satiety and reduce consumption. 23,24 Summary and Conclusion Research has shown that weight loss surgery patients may experience difficulty in losing and maintaining body weight. Therefore, the development and use of adjunctive weight loss therapies becomes critical for the long-term support of patients with obesity. A surge in data over the past decade has linked the microbiome to body weight regulation. Our ability to regulate body weight through targeted probiotic strains, such as B420, can contribute to patient success; thus the addition of certain probiotics to these patients' weight loss/maintenance plans should be considered by those clinicians who treat patients with overweight and obesity.
