Exercise Improves Performance Enhancing Bacteria in Our bodies
New research has revealed that people who exercise regularly may have of more of performance enhancing bacteria in their microbiomes.
The study was conducted among elite athletes by researchers at Joslin Diabetes Centre and the bacteria identified belongs to Veilonella which is not found on the guts of those who lead a sedentary life style. Lactic acid is produced while exercising vigorously and Veillonella bacteria is able to use the bi-product of exercise as the main source. Bacteria in our guts have a positive impact on our health and involving in exercise improves the numbers of Veilonella bacteria. It was found that supplementing microbiome using a probiotic capsule containing Veilonella could given them the bosst they need for effective exercise.
A probiotic supplement is being envisaged by the researchers that will increase their ability to do meaningful exercise and protect them chronic diseases including diabetes. The new research finding is helpful in this regard.
