Probiotics are for Pros (and Amateurs)

You’ve certainly heard all about probiotics by now and how the probiotics in yogurt are a great way to boost your overall health, but you might not think of yogurt as workout fuel. Well, think about it. Adding yogurt to your diet can give you many benefits for your longterm health and for your immediate athletic performance. 

So yeah, probiotics. Seems you carry something like 100 trillion (yes, TRillion) microorganisms in your gut. Little bacteria that take up residence in your intestines. Many of these bacteria are “good” because they serve a beneficial function, specifically, helping you with digestion. “Probiotics” is a term referring to nutrition that introduces more good bacteria to the system that will ultimately replace some of the bad bacteria.
