Here's a short and sweet probiotic research update...
In a small controlled study, daily
supplementation with a mixture of 2 probiotic strains during 4 weeks of intense physical activity was found to
increase plasma antioxidant levels, neutralizing harmful free-radicals. The
authors conclude, "Athletes and all those exposed to oxidative stress may
benefit from the ability of these probiotics to increase antioxidant levels and
neutralize the effects of reactive oxygen species."
