Whilst moderate exercise is beneficial for many aspects of health, high levels of exercise (including participation in competitive sport) can cause physical and mental health problems, including stress-related behaviour, anxiety, poor mood and sleep, vulnerability to infection and gut disorders. This is well documented and has been reviewed by international sporting bodies such as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Society of Sports Nutrition, who indicated probiotics may potentially help*.
Accredited sports dietitian Dr Sarah Schenker explains: “Overtraining can have a negative impact on the bacteria in your gut which, as well as impacting the immune system and absorption of nutrients, may also affect an athlete’s mental health. There’s a connection between the gut and the brain known as the ‘gut-brain axis’ and poor gut health can negatively impact an athlete’s mood, self-confidence and the way they perceive themselves. Along with diet, hydration and training – good gut health is one of the cornerstones of optimum performance.”
