From the literature it is known that maintaining the gut microbiome balance plays an important role in the prevention of diseases and disorders 1. Consequently, a healthy intestinal flora is extremely important for both athletes and non-athletes. 20-50% of all athletes regularly experience gastrointestinal complaints during exercise. These can be caused by both mechanical (eg up and down movements during running, posture on the bicycle), nutritional (eg high-fat, high-fiber or protein-rich food, excessive eating volume) and physiological (eg reduced blood supply to the intestine, stress hormones) factors. An athlete may have to deal with the so-called ‘leaky gut’ when the permeability of the intestinal mucosa is increased. The intestinal mucosa is damaged by reduced circulation of the intestines during exercise. As a result, unfavorable bacteria, indigestible food particles, viruses, fungi… can end up in the blood stream and cause inflammatory reactions and possibly reduced immunity.
Max D-efense is a food supplement containing both microorganisms (probiotics), inulin (prebiotic) and vitamin D:
Probiotics help to maintain or restore the balance between human essential and pathogenic bacteria. In addition, they have a positive effect on the digestion process and improve the efficiency of the immunological system. Effects of taking probiotics are strain-specific. Max D-efense contains 9 different strains of micro-organisms per capsule, which benefits the diversity and optimal functioning of this supplement. Studies show that supplementation of probiotics in athletes leads to less frequent occurrences of upper respiratory tract infections and fewer gastrointestinal complaints.
Prebiotics are the food of ‘good bacteria’ in the intestines and therefore stimulate their growth.
Vitamin D deficiency is common among athletes. Vitamin D in Max D-efense contributes to normal functioning of the immune system.
Recommended for all athletes in case of:
- Disordered intestinal flora
- During and 2 weeks after antibiotics treatment
- Athletes who often suffer from gastrointestinal complaints during exercise or who are sensitive to it
- Reduced immunity (eg susceptible to upper respiratory tract infections)
