👉🏽THIS GUT BACTERIA ENHANCES EXERCISE PERFORMANCE… ⁣

💎GUT BACTERIA IMPROVES EXERCISE PERFORMANCE:⁣⁣
Six hours after the administration of a bacterium known as ‘Veillonella atypica’, researchers placed mice to run on a treadmill until they literally could no longer. The results revealed that the Veillonella atypica group lasted longer than the mice in the other group (Scheiman et al., 2019).⁣⁣
⁣⁣
🔥HOW DOES IT WORK?⁣⁣
Microbiologists know Veillonella as a bacterium that converts lactic acid into propionate. Athletes make a lot of lactic acid, and propionate is a short chain fatty acid that the body uses as a kind of super fuel (Suppversity, 2020).⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💊THE FUTURE OF PROBIOTICS?⁣⁣
Having excellent exercise capacity is a strong predictor of overall health and protection against cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and overall longevity. What the researchers envision is “A probiotic supplement that people can take that will increase their ability to do meaningful exercise and therefore protect them against chronic diseases” (Scheiman et al., 2019).⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💥TAKEAWAY:⁣⁣
This is the future of probiotics. We can utilise these modalities to enhance our quality of life and wellbeing. If taking control of your life performance through science interests you, then see my Nootropics course.
