Kick Start Your Gut and Your Training

January 08, 2019 - Increase probiotics this winter to aid in training recovery time and lessen the chance of catching a common cold. Fermented foods such as yogurt, kombucha, miso, and kimchee come packed with naturally occurring bacteria aimed to boost your immune system.


Increase probiotics this winter to aid in training recovery time and lessen the chance of catching a common cold. Fermented foods such as yogurt, kombucha, miso, and kimchee come packed with naturally occurring bacteria aimed to boost your immune system.


Lactobacillus fermentum, a bacteria found in yogurt, has specifically shown to reduce the severity of chest colds in endurance runners.1  Beyond probiotics’ power to shorten illness, research has supported that probiotics also lessen recovery time, build up the immune system and aid in the support of a healthy Gastrointestinal tract.2


For an extra benefit, be more mindful of increasing prebiotic intake. Foods rich in prebiotics are garlic, onion, and asparagus, to name a few. Adding these prebiotic gems along with probiotics to your meals will help your gut flourish. Because we care about your gut health, we will be bringing you a recipe featuring probiotics or prebiotics every week in January! Starting this week, eat that extra spoonful of yogurt, sprinkle kimchi and onion on your eggs, and cheers with a Friday night Kombucha.
