Lose more weight with Provitalize – or so they claim. When we heard about this probiotic turned weight-loss supplement, our research team was immediately hyped to see what this new product was all about.
With details on ingredients, possible side effects, product claims and more, we’re here to give you the bottom line on Provitalize.
Provitalize is a “weight management complex,” according to the product label. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen weight management and probiotics in the same sentence. Other products have tried to work in this space, so this one needs to have a unique formula that’s new to dieters.
This is how much it costs to start on the respective program. We always recommend trying a product before making a large investment.

What is it that this probiotic weight-loss pill is trying to sell? How will this supplement affect my weight and what other benefits does the company suggest? According to Better Body Co, Provitalize offers to:
L. Gasseri – Based on a study in the Korean Journal of Family Medicine, “Despite there being no change in behavior or diet, administration of only the supplement of BNR17 reduced weight and waist and hip circumference.”
B. Lactis – According to a study in Microorganisms, “BB-12® has been shown to improve bowel function, to have a protective effect against diarrhea, and to reduce side effects of antibiotic treatment, such as antibiotic-associated diarrhea. In terms of immune function, clinical studies have shown that BB-12® increases the body’s resistance to common respiratory infections as well as reduces the incidence of acute respiratory tract infections.” (The study was completed on a registered brand of b. Lactis called BB-12.)
Turmeric Root Extract – Some preliminary evidence from the NCCIH shows turmeric may help reduce knee pain associated with arthritis. We didn’t find a connection to probiotic or prebiotic function.
Moringa Leaf Extract – This potent antioxidant fights free radical damage. According to a study in Plant Foods For Human Nutrition, “study suggests that the extracts of Moringa oleifera both mature and tender leaves have potent antioxidant activity against free radicals, prevent oxidative damage to major biomolecules and afford significant protection against oxidative damage.” Free radicals are known to cause oxidative damage.
The recommended dose of Provitalize is two capsules daily. According to the product FAQ, this amount has been shown via user feedback to provide sustained effects on weight, pain, inflammation and gut health.
The website also offers a bit of advice on when to take the supplement. According to Provitalize, the best results come when taken immediately upon waking.

What Users Are Saying
“I’ve been taking Provitalize for three weeks. I got on the scale this morning and could not believe what I was seeing. Waste elimination has been effortless and monstrous. I’m beginning to think everyone should be on probiotics. This product made me a believer.”
“Been taking them for a few weeks now and haven’t noticed any great benefits. I will keep taking them and see what happens but I’d say, as of now, not worth the money.”
“Didn’t lose weight. But it did eliminate hot flashes!”
Bottom Line on Provitalize
We’re not 100% sold on Provitalize, but it’s not a bad supplement. Probiotic support has strong clinical support for overall health and without good overall health, you won’t find healthy weight loss. The price is also a little higher than we’re used to seeing with probiotics.
