Have you been enjoying my Whiteboard Webinars
I’ve been smashing out?! If you haven’t checked them out, I definitely encourage you to do so.
💊 LET’S TALK ABOUT PROBIOTICS FOR MUSCLE SORENESS & SLEEP:
Psychometric variables and salivary biomarkers were assessed twice a week. Athletes were assigned either a daily probiotic (Ultrabiotic 60™) and Saccharomyces boulardii (during international competition) or a placebo.
Associations between psychometric scores for perceptual and salivary biomarkers of sleep (melatonin) and inflammation C-reactive protein (CRP) were investigated.
What they found was that probiotic supplementation in international-level rugby union players may yield favourable effects on self-reported muscle soreness and sleep quality associated with muscle soreness during training and competitions.
💥 ERGOGENIC FACT:
Did you know that 5-HTP supplements can raise cortisol?
I would never take 5-HTP personally, because it directly raises serotonin. High serotonin is not a nice feeling at all. See my post here
