Exercise Impacts Gut Microbial Diversity

The article, The Irish rugby team has exceptional guts: Exercise and diet impact gut microbial diversity, notes that:

“Exercise and diet impact gut microbial diversity, according to recent research. The gut microbiota of athletes is more diverse than that of controls and this diversity is linked to exercise and protein consumption in athletes. Athletes also have lower inflammatory and improved metabolic markers relative to controls.”

Fascinating! Exercise can increase the diversity of microbes in one’s gut, and more diverse microbes decrease inflammation. Wonderful!
