Abstract We investigated the weight-gain suppressive effect of Lactobacillus gasseri BNR17 isolated from human breast milk. Rats were fed a high-carbohydrate diet and administered BNR17 (BNR17 group) twice daily for twelve weeks. Changes were observed in body weight and white adipose tissue mass. The percent increase in body weight (P=0.0331) and fat pad mass (P<0.01) was significantly lower in the BNR17 group, and the FER was moderately lower (P=0.0769). These data suggest that BNR17 can prevent diet-induced overweight and may become an alternative method for treating weight problems and obesity.
