ga('send', 'event', 'Health & Wellbeing', 'article', 'article-industry-impression', {nonInteraction: true});

US Harvard University’s Wyss Institute has discovered a potential link between the healthy gut bacteria found in elite athletes and their overall athletic performance. The Institute recruited large number of elite athletes as part of its sports genomics program to analyse changes in the microbiome that consistently occur in peak endurance, speed and strength performances. These results will be translated into probiotic formulations that, after appropriate safety testing, may help every-day-athletes reach higher performance levels and more efficient recovery. Research published in recent years has unveiled potential connections between the composition of the gut microbiome and different physiological processes, including overall…
