Why

A healthy digestive system based on a balance of intestinal flora is a key foundation of our physical health but modern diets as well as drugs such as antibiotics can disrupt optimal digestive function leading to digestive ill health and uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating and wind. Probiotic Elite supplies 8 unique strains of of healthy bacteria that promote microflora balance and can help support improved digestion and immunity.

When

Probiotic Elite can be used for short periods of time when users require high levels of healthy bacteria. Alternatively, it can be used on an ongoing basis as part of a strategy to support your digestive system.

Who

Probiotic Elite is suitable for everyone seeking a high strength, wide spectrum probiotic to help support optimal digestive function.

Predator Nutrition Probiotic Elite Review

We've spent a long time analysing the role of nutrition, and supplementation to increasing performance but the one thing which consistently surprises us is how little attention is paid to digestive health.

The Impact of Athletic Lifestyles on Nutrient Absorption

Let's think about this a little and understand why you could be wasting your money. We have talked at length about how inadequate digestion can cause comprimised gut health with wind, and bloating after meals a classic sign of impaired digestion while those of you who love stimulants should be aware that caffeine has some negative effects on gut function also.

With the typical athletic lifestyle characterised by frequent, intense training combined with heavy intakes of protein alongside a personality type where too much is never enough, it is little surprise that many of us if we go ahead and test our nutrient utilisation rates will find that much of what we ingest is wasted by the body due to malabsorption of nutrients which means that while you may think you 200g of protein per day is all going to repairing and building muscle, a great deal of it may actually be acting as a physical stressor leading to gas, bloat, and inhibited absorption of vital nutrients.

Not all Probiotics are the Same

By optimising digestive tract efficiency we can not only better absorb food but also ensure greater utilisation by the body of the minerals, vitamins and proteins that keep us healthy and fit. Probiotics have been used for a long time to help provide the body with healthy bacteria that play a key role in cultivating a healthy digesive system but it is important to understand that not all probiotics deliver what they claim, indeed some will do very little at all.

Understanding Probiotic Science

Probiotics are live microorganisms like those normally present in our intestines.  These organisms help us digest food, destroy pathogenic microorganisms, and produce vitamins and other nutrients.  In 1989, the term probiotic was officially defined as “a live microbial feed supplement which beneficially affects the host animal by improving its intestinal balance".  But although the term has only recently been standardized, probiotics have been in use for thousands of years; in 76 AD, the Roman scientist and researcher Pliny the Elder recommended the ingestion of fermented milk products for the treatment of stomach conditions! 

Modern research in Probiotics is generally assumed to have begun when the Nobel Prize winner Elie Mechnikov noticed positive health effects stemming from the regular consumption of dairy products rich in Lactobacillus.  He famously proposed that the consumption of lactobacillus-fermented yogurt would result in a decrease in toxin-producing bacteria in the gut and an increase in the health and longevity of the host.  Since then, numerous researchers have noticed that bacteria in the colon produce many different types of chemical compounds that can have a positive effect upon the health of the host.  For instance:

-It is well known that short-chain fatty acids like acetate, propionate, and butyrate are produced by intestinal bacteria as they break down and ferment complex carbohydrates.  This is vital, as there are no enzymes which break down complex carbohydrates or cellulose.  It is all the more vital as it has been estimated that gut-bacteria derived SCFAs contribute roughly 10% to the caloric requirements of humans.  (And around 70% to the caloric requirements of ruminants, such as sheep and cattle!)

-In addition to converting indigestible complex carbohydrates into high-energy SCFAs, probiotics have also been shown to increase protein and amino acid absorption in the intestines.  

-Bacterial strains such as L. reuteri also produce compounds like reuterin, which inhibit pathogen growth in the intestines.

-Lactic acid bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are well known for their ability to produce highly-bioavailable B-group vitamins, including the complex B12.

The bottom line: In assisting with protein absorption, the production of energy from complex carbohydrates, and vitamin synthesis, probiotics can help you derive the greatest possible benefit from your diet and training regimen. 

 

What Sets Probiotic Elite Apart

Probiotic Elite was carefully formulated to ensure maximal benefit to athletes and bodybuilders, and makes use of a careful selection and ratio of strains.

Bifidobacterium breve has been shown to upregulate genes involved in fat metabolism and insulin sensitivity in the gut. [1]

Lactobacillus reuteri produces vitamin B12 and reuterin in large amounts [2] -- both of which positively affect digestive system and overall health, and may increase energy levels.  

Lactobacillus plantarum is the crown jewel of the formula.  Not only is it an excellent metabolizer of starches and carbohydrates, it has had profound performance-enhancing effects in animal experiments: Reducing albumin, blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, and triacylglycerol levels; lowering bodyfat levels; increasing grip strength and muscle to bodyweight ratio.  The bottom line: "Long-term supplementation with [L.Plantarum] may increase muscle mass, enhance energy harvesting, and have health-promotion, performance-improvement, and anti-fatigue effects." [3] 

Bifidobacterium longum is a particularly good digestion-aid.  In addition to the fact that it can break down numerous types of carbohydrate, it is noteworthy for the fact that it hydrolyzes and assists in the digestion of casein and other milk proteins such as lactoferrin. [4]

Lactobacillus casei is remarkable for the fact that it can reduce cortisol secretion in response to stress.  [5]  It has even been called a "psychobiotic" for the fact that it can help to alleviate anxiety!  [6]

Bifidobacterium lactis improves insulin-stimulated glucose uptake and translocation of GLUT4 via the insulin signalling pathways [7].  It has also been shown to reduce obesity, blood lipids, and some inflammatory markers in people suffering from metabolic syndrome.  [8] 

Streptococcus Thermophilus, when combined with B.Breve, exerts a positive effect upon intestinal health. [9]  It releases metabolites which display an anti-TNF-alpha effect capable of crossing the intestinal barrier.  TNF-alpha is, among other things, implicated in skeletal muscle atrophy, so it is likely that anti-TNF-alpha molecules prove anti-catabolic in nature.  S Thermophilus is also excellent at protein hydrolysis, particularly from milk and whey protein, so may enhance protein absorption from whey and casein supplements.

Lactobacillus acidophilus increases butyrate uptake and the expression of the monocarboxylate transporter 1 (MCT1) protein -- which shuttles short-chain fatty acids from the intestines into the bloodstream where they can be used as energy.  It also assists with electrolyte absorption from the intestines. [10]

Every strain has been carefully selected for its beneficial properties:  Better protein, carbohydrate, vitamin, and electrolyte absorption; a healthier digestive system; reduced inflammation and cortisol, and healthier muscles; improved insulin signaling and metabolic health... and more.  If there's one supplement you should be taking, this is the one.
