Thanks to the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN), probiotics are garnering serious attention. For years, probiotic research had been considered a gimmick but with the increasing awareness of the role that the gut microbiome has to play in sports nutrition e.g. enhancement in protein absorption, reducing exercise fatigue through lactic acid production and regulation of metabolism leading to increased ATP levels., probiotic supplements in the sports industry are here to stay and for long !.
The ISSN offers an impartial and critical examination of the mechanisms and applications of probiotic supplementation in athletes' health, performance, and recovery. The ISSN's conclusions are :
Probiotics are living microorganisms that can boost the number of good bacteria in the digestive tract when taken orally thereby offering many gut health advantages along with enhancement in immunity. Sports nutrition aids in the fueling of all kinds of workouts and encourages a quick recovery. A well planned nutritious diet cannot be undermined as it is of utmost importance in supporting an athlete's general health and specific training needs. This should however be tailored to the individual athlete, goals, food preferences and practical challenges. Sports nutrition plays a major role in achieving different fitness goals such as :
It is very important to stay hydrated as well. Good hydration means getting the right amount of water before, during, and after exercise. Water regulates body temperature and lubricates the joints. If one is not hydrated enough, it may lead to fatigue, muscle cramps, dizziness, or other serious symptoms.
There are various dietary supplements available in a variety of forms (tablets, capsules, liquids, powders, and bars) in the market aimed at enhancing exercise and athletic performance. Some of the more popular and widely consumed supplements include creatine, protein (whey), branched-chain amino acids ( BCAA), caffeine and probiotics.
The following are some of the benefits of Probiotics in sports nutrition :
Unique Biotech (UBL) focuses on creating high-quality probiotic supplementations. As one of the world's foremost probiotics manufacturers, we provide end-to-end solutions, from probiotic strain isolation to final formulations in various dosage forms.
UBL’s PROBIVITA has been specifically designed and formulated for the sports segment keeping in mind the needs of athletes. It contains the well documented, safe probiotic strain, Bacillus coagulans Unique IS-2 in combination with whey.
Whey protein is well known for high quality, rapid absorption and superior content of essential amino acids and branched-chain amino acids. In athletes, it is known to enhance endurance, stimulate muscle protein synthesis and bring about faster recovery. Moreover, it is one of the best sources of the amino acid leucine, a branched-chain amino acid which is metabolized directly by the muscle tissue assisting in the promotion of muscle synthesis. UBL’s proprietary probiotic strain, Bacillus coagulans Unique IS-2 has been clinically proven to maintain digestive wellness and enhance immunity and was therefore added to whey protein for additional benefits.
A study conducted with PROBIVITA in resistance-trained subjects resulted in :
