Probiotics are well known for their benefits on digestive health and immunity. And word is slowly getting out to athletes that one element of their exertions is to maintain health—you’re not going to run a race effectively if you’ve got an upper respiratory tract infection. But the evolving story with probiotics goes far beyond just helping people stay healthy. Join senior editor Todd Runestad as he talks with Douglas Kalman, Ph.D., R.D., vice president of scientific affairs at Nutrasource, as they race to the finish to discuss:

  • Have we gotten to the point yet where we can identify specific probiotic strains that can help athletes?

  • How probiotic strains can increase protein absorption—of great importance to the athletic set.

  • How probiotic strains can affect indices that seem far afield from what we thought we knew about probiotics.
