Probiotics are live microorganisms thought to be healthy for the host organism. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and bifidobacteria are the most common types of microbes used as probiotics; but certain yeasts and bacilli may also be helpful.
Probiotics are commonly consumed as part of fermented foods with specially added active live cultures; such as in yogurt, soy yogurt, or as dietary supplements.
How does this benefit the bodybuilder? Jim Stoppani, PhD, wrote in the April 2010 issue of Muscle & Fitness magazine: "Think about adding fish oil and a probiotic to your supplement stack. Evidence shows they may promote absorption of amino acids and other dietary nutrients to better support hypertrophy (muscle growth)."
You could just add yogurt to your diet, but if you cant stand the taste, or are lactose intolerant, think about adding one of the probiotic supplements below to your daily supplement regiment.
