- Improved intestinal health, immune system, and function
- Increased nutrient absorption
- Protection against possible long-term antibiotic use side-effects
Infections, poor diet, stress, overuse of anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), antibiotic use, and even chlorinated water can deplete or destroy the healthy bacteria living in the human digestive system. This can allow undesirable bacteria to flourish and severely compromise digestive function, nutrient absorption, intestinal health, and immunity. Of course, undesirable microorganisms also cause other various infections with their resultant discomfort, fatigue, bloating, constipation, etc.
Maintaining healthy intestinal flora should be a special priority for athletes
One well-known nutritionist states, "Unhealthy flora can result in the liberation of abnormally high levels of ammonia as protein-containing foods are digested. This irritates the intestinal membranes. In addition, the ammonia is absorbed into the bloodstream and must be detoxified by the liver..." High blood levels of ammonia are linked to fatigue and every step that can be taken to minimize excess ammonia production and accumulation should be taken. For many, many reasons, one of which is to help prevent excess ammonia production where it first manifests, the wise athlete will make sure the "gut is healthy" at all times.
