Can Probiotics Help Your Athletic Performance?

We have all heard the link between probiotics and GUT health, Immune system, and even Anxiety, Depression, and some of the other Brain diseases.

But Athletic Performance? It’s True…

According to Dr. Mercola, a recent study demonstrates that using a probiotic may help reduce Muscle Inflammation, and thus Improve your Performance during your next workout. Results showed that an inflammatory marker in the blood was decreased in those who had taken the Probiotics.

The athletes who took probiotics also experienced better Peak Torque production within the first 72 hours post exercise, indicating that Probiotics improved performance. The participants used either a protein supplement, or a protein supplement along with Probiotics.

After two weeks, measurements were taken of athletic performance and muscle damage following an exercise known to cause muscle damage. The athletes who took a supplement with Probiotics had reduced muscle damage, better physical performance and better exercise recovery than the placebo group.

Improved Digestion and Increased Absorption Advances Performance

Probiotics also increase your Absorption of Nutrients, which will improve your Athletic Performance as your muscle cells have a better nutrient foundation.

The nutrients improve your Recovery time, and increase the consistency of your Performance over time. Improving your Nutrient Absorption may also reduce your risk of illness and disease.

In order for the food you eat to be broken down and used by your body, your stomach and intestines must do the work of digestion. As you age, your digestion may become less efficient, as most people suffer from Leaky Gut or just have less enzymes to break down foods. This may create an environment in which a variety of digestive disorders are more prevalent.

The prevalence of Gastrointestinal Disorders ranges between 30 and 70 percent among endurance athletes, depending upon the study & participants. Probiotic supplementation improves healthy bacteria population within your intestinal tract, and also improves Digestion.

All Probiotics are NOT created Equal!

What most people fail to recognize, is that all Probiotics are not equal. You need to make sure you are getting a high quality one. Furthermore, it is important to “clear out” the Bad Bugs in the GUT to make room for the Good ones. You can do this with the Leaky Gut Bundle. It help kills the Candida, E. Coli, Salmonella, and other nasty bacteria.

Take Your Performance to the NEXT Level

Probiotics are just the first step. When you incorporate Accelerated Colloidal Silver™, which helps support the Immune system, and Ola Loa Multivitamin Drink, which provides the needed minerals and electrolytes, Endurance and Strength improve even more. And, to take your performance to your Personal Peak, you incorporate KETO, which puts you into a state of Fat-burning KETOSIS, and provides an endless stream of Energy, Improved Oxygen Utilization, Reduces Inflammation, and Prevents Muscle Breakdown. All of the above are included in the Accelerated Keto Detox.
