  1. Probiotics Can Help Improve Your Mental Health

Depression and anxiety can have a serious negative impact on anybody, and especially on your mental health as an athlete. There is nothing that can take your focus away from both training and at game time than depression or anxiety related to playing your sport or even related to your personal life.

Several studies have shown that probiotics Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus taken over a period of months can help improve conditions related to both anxiety and depression, and can even help lower stress levels.

Maintaining a healthy and optimal body mass index (BMI) and overall lower body fat percentages is associated with higher performance in athletes, and we all know being overweight can have a negative impact on all aspects of your life.

  1. Probiotics Can Help Treat Common Digestion Issues

Stomach issues such as Diarrhea and to a larger extent irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) have a major impact on the general population, not to mention serious athletes. We have all had an upset stomach act up right before we’re about to hit the field for that big game, and probiotics can solve this problem in certain cases.

 

  1. Probiotics Can Support Heart Health 

Certain probiotics may be able to lower bad or LDL cholesterol, by breaking down bile in your stomach. Probiotics can break down bile, which prevents it from entering the bloodstream in the form of cholesterol.

Overall, probiotics are an important part of consumption for anyone looking to maintain their health, and especially high-performing athletes that need to recover quickly and always be on top of their game.
