How Do Probiotic Supplements Boost Athletic Performance?

Category: Educational Articles

From a person’s first venture into the world of athletics to professionals at the height of their game, sports offer a way to have fun, engage in healthy competition, remain fit and build lasting memories.

However, to reap those benefits, athletes need to keep their bodies in optimal condition. Training, diet and mindset go a long way – but they may not always be enough.

The Need for Probiotics to Round Out Sports Readiness and Recovery

The health of a person’s microbiome and digestive tract – in simpler terms, their gut – is critical to gaining a competitive edge via holistic fitness.

Probiotic supplements specifically target that aspect of an athlete’s wellness, increasing gut health and elevating overall athletic performance.

Probiotics boost the health of athletes in three key ways:

  • Digestion Optimization
    In order to have optimal digestion, your body needs to absorb nutrients, digest proteins and, overall, work to provide the building blocks for both the building of muscle and recovery after exertion. Probiotic supplements aid athletes’ bodies in all three categories, increasing absorption and digestion capabilities to provide that solid foundation for performance.
  • Immunity Strengthening
    Similar to digestion optimization, athletes’ bodies also need a strong immune system to keep them on the field – and probiotics help them do just that. The cells responsible for immune strength are in the gut, and probiotics work to support those cells. When athletes are less susceptible to sickness and infection, even small upsets, they’re better able to perform at the peak of their ability.
  • GI Issue Minimization
    Every athlete has likely experienced it – after all their hard work and extensive training, something as seemingly inconsequential as gas, diarrhea, bloating, heartburn or other gastrointestinal issues can derail that progress. Probiotic supplements minimize the risk and effects of these barriers to performance, leaving athletes free and clear to do their best work.

How Do Probiotic Supplements Bring these Benefits?

Effective probiotic supplements, such as Deerland’s Bacillus subtilis DE111, work in a variety of ways to deliver athletes’ bodies the aforementioned benefits.

DE111 produces enzymes that aid in the digestion of proteins and the uptake of nutrients, and also helps produce short-chain fatty acids that further boost digestive capabilities and the immune system. Clinical studies have shown the beneficial effects of combining DE111 with a protein drink on athletes’ performance in the weight room, body composition and recovery.
