An active lifestyle contributes to your overall health. A strong, robust body allows you to achieve peak physical performance when coupled with a healthy diet (such as vegetarian, vegan or flexitarian). When your body is your most valuable tool the importance of taking care of it increases. A daily probiotic supplement is the perfect addition to your training regime for both men and women alike!
Anti inflammatory probiotic strains have shown they can help improve recovery from muscle damage caused by exercise. Athletes often want to build muscle. Proper diet and strength training are important but so are probiotics as they can aid in digestion and protein absorption. For an athlete’s body (or anyone’s body) to get the most out of the protein they eat it needs to be properly broken down. Then the small intestines are able to absorb it and put it to use within the body. Athletes may take in enormous quantities of protein at once. Probiotics also aid the body in producing digestive enzymes that digest proteins that might otherwise be difficult to break down and absorb. Therefore, if protein shakes, powders and bars are combined with probiotics the protein can be better absorbed and more beneficial to the athlete. Nova probiotics can help the with the body’s absorption of vitamins and nutrients into the bloodstream and are allergen free (gluten, dairy/lactose free). By absorbing the most nutritional value possible from food you are able to have more energy, improved recovery and increased stamina. Probiotics also aid in turning food into hard working fuels making them a great way to maximize your workout.
Studies have shown evidence of the role of a healthy microbiome in althletic and sport performance with elite runners having a greater abundance of Veillonella (part of the flora) that seems to confer a metabolic advantage for endurance exercise by converting exercise-induced lactate to propionate. A 13% increase in endurance performance was found in pre-clinical studies with Veillonella.
