Schachter suggests probiotics first for gut health and weight loss. She says probiotics are good intestinal bacteria. Probiotics enhance digestion, reduce inflammation, and boost immunity.
Schachter thinks probiotics work because, "The gut microbiome contains trillions of healthy and harmful bacteria. Diet, lifestyle, drugs, and stress can affect gut microbes. Disrupted gut bacteria can cause bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea."
Fiber supplements are necessary for weight loss and digestive health. Schachter says it regulates bowel movements, reduces inflammation, and promotes good gut bacteria. "Fiber supplements or eating a range of fiber-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes helps promote a healthy gut and support weight loss."
Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and other plant foods include fiber, a type of carbohydrate. Fiber is tougher for your small intestine to digest than other carbs. Hence, it aids digestion and relieves constipation.

Omega-3 fatty acid supplements are another Schachter recommendation for gut health and weight loss. Fish, seeds, and nuts contain beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. They promote weight loss, intestinal diversity, "lower inflammation, improve heart health, and promote healthy brain function."
Schachter says omega-3s reduce inflammation and improve insulin sensitivity, helping weight loss. Schachter says, "Omega-3 polyunsaturated fats are vital for wellness. ALA, EPA, and DHA are the primary omega-3 fatty acids." Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation, improve heart health, cognitive health, mood, and weight loss.
