Power of numbers: Microbiome effects on health and athlete performance.
Thriving healthy gut bacteria play a monumental role in all facets of life, including health and sports performance outcomes. Inadequate lifestyle choices and prolonged training fatigue have a pronounced effect on disrupting important bacteria, that will ultimately contribute to metabolic disturbances, amongst other health risks.
Dr Simon Sostaric presents a snapshot of these implications in the December 2017 edition of the Australian Triathlete Magazine.
Highly sophisticated and precise microbiome (genetic sequencing of the gut bacteria ecosystem) analysis is now available at Melbourne Sports & Allied Health Clinic. Our focus on evaluating and monitoring microbiome diversity or dysbiosis is particularly relevant for those seeking to improve health and sports performance; mitigate weight gain; metabolic conditions; fatigue; and a broad range of other common health conditions.
