Why Is Deworming Important For Weight Loss ?

We know that our Gut , also known as alimentary canal is responsible for digestion. Actually, our gut is much more than a digestion system, it controls our immunity system. We have more than 100 trillion living bacteria in our gut !

Maintaining probiotics i.e. good bacteria in our gut is very important for good health and weight loss(fat loss). A lot of studies reveal issues including obesity due to low probiotics or their imbalance in our gut.

Below are some of the symptoms of imbalance in probiotics level in the gut –

  • Bloating
  • Gastric issues
  • Frequent headaches
  • Constipation  or diarrhea
  • Skin issues
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Insomnia
  • An inability to lose weight
  • Cravings for sugar/carbs

Due to our lifestyle , majority of us lack in good probiotic bacteria , eventually harming our gut. Our lifestyle includes –

  • Processed foods
  • Sugar
  • Chlorinated water
  • Pollution
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Pesticides that we consume with our food
  • Antibiotics

I can bet none of us eats only organic food, no processed food at all , no sugar etc. Hence, most likely our gut suffers !

There are high chances that you are not able to shed weight , because of bad  worms or low good probiotics in your gut. These are also called belly bugs. You might ask , what do we do then ? Its simple ! Deworm yourself once in 6 months religiously. Please refer a doctor if you are allergic to some medicine. I don’t have any such allergies , so i just ask chemist for a deworming tablet.

This is a tablet called ”Zentel”  from GlaxoSmithKline that I got this time –

Deworming tablet Important For Weight Loss

My mum says that we should consume this tablet at night with milk + extra sugar or with some sweet, perhaps to attract worms :P. You might feel minor headache or little pukish next morning ! Don’t worry, these are signs of improvement !

It has been observed that some people develope rashes and itching all over the body without any reason, that might be due to a delayed deworming schedule. If you find your pillow wet with your saliva at night, go get a good deworming medicine prescribed by the doctor.

Happy Deworming :).

  1. I kno the correct dosage: zentel or mabex are the two deworming tabs avlb in mkt:
    U need to take one tab every 7 days for three week: tht is three tabs in a week! If u take ur first tab on mon ensure ur next tab is on the following monday.

  2. Achcha. My chemist said one tab is enuf. I will do for 3 weeks. But na. Dis gives me headache in d mornnin

  3. Try mabex.. That has to be taken just once… Also one more point.. Deworming also reduced the number of allergens in the body.. If u do a complete blood count and ur esnophil level is more than 7 u will be put on a deworming course!

  4. Yeah u r rite. Mine is ok. I have been doin dewormin for quite a few yrs. 1 our of 4 times, I was sufferin from worms. Tab se regularly, every six months I do

  5. Nothing will happen. But still, ask ur doc once when you visit her cuz u might be feeding na
    Even if you are not trying to lose weight, its important to do deworming once in six months.

  6. I thought deworming is for kids only for they are prone to bacteria. Never thought it can be applied when you want to lose weight.
