NDS® Probiotic Performance can improve intestinal barrier function, low-grade inflammation and redox homeostasis.
NDS® Performance Athlete Probiotic has been tested in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial at the Medical University of Graz, Austria. Twenty-three endurance sportsmen received a daily dose (1*1010 cfu/day) of NDS® Probiotic Performance or placebo for 14 weeks. The triple step test ergometry was used as a model for stress. This performance test to measure maximum endurance capacity was performed at baseline and at the end of the treatment. Markers for intestinal barrier function, oxidative stress and inflammation were measured. The trial showed that supplementation with NDS® Probiotic Performance significantly decreased stool zonulin levels, an important marker for a ‘leaky gut’. Moreover, a trend was shown towards a decrease in the chronic inflammatory marker TNF-α.
In Europe, probiotic strains are con- sidered safe if they have the Qualified Presumption of Safety (QPS)-status5. All probiotic strains in NDS® Probiotic Performance have the QPS status.
