Probiotics May Improve Antioxidant Status in Athletes

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."
