What Is Intensive Training Probiotic Complex?

PRP's New Intensive Training Probiotic Complex is a Probiotic designed to increase performance and aid digestion during intense exercise. It contains the unique Lab4 group of probiotic organisms, along with a few other specially selected ingredients.

These four friendly and beneficial species of bacteria are naturally present in our intestines, but their numbers can be reduced due to the stresses of our modern lifestyle. This resultant imbalance in flora may produce feelings of bloating and intestinal discomfort. The Lab4 friendly bacteria are the most comprehensively studied group of friendly bacteria of any product in the UK.

The Lab4 strain of probiotic found in Intensive Training Probiotic Complex has been used in 4 clinical studies in relation to performance, particularly endurance sports. These studies are:

Marathon des Sables Study - 12% Quicker Overall Race Time

Runners competing in the Marathon des Sables (often called the toughest race on the planet) had an overall race time that was 12% quicker after supplementing with Lab4 probiotics compared to placebo (Marshall et al.m 2017)

The Hertfordshire Study - 10% Quicker Overall Race Time

In ironman triathletes, participants supplemented with probiotics or placebo for 12 weeks. Those taking probiotics had a 10% quicker overall race time than those on the placebo. Those taking probiotics also suffered from fewer and less severe gut symptoms (e.g. bloating, urge to defecate, nausea, etc.) during training compared to the placebo group. (Roberts et al., 2016)

The Hertfordshire Study - Participants Ran For ~15% Longer

When runners supplemented with Lab4 probiotics for 4 weeks and asked to run to exhaustion in the heat, they were able to run for ~15% longer compared to when they had taken the placebo (Shing et al., 2014)

The Liverpool Endurance Study - Reduced GI Symptoms During Marathon Race

Four weeks of probiotic supplementation reduces GI symptoms during a marathon race.

Probiotic Formulated For Sport and Performance

Intensive Training Probiotic also contains L-Glutamine, N-Acetyl Glucosamine and ElavTP.

L-Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid, but that doesn’t mean it’s not beneficial. When you exercise, your body breaks down amino acids in your muscles, this is called catabolism, and because glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids within the body, the levels of glutamine can be significantly depleted after exercise, making the restoration of this amino acid that got diminished during your workout essential.

ElavTP, or ElavATP is a mineral sourced from ancient peat bogs which work with our natural energy-producing mechanisms to stimulate the production of ATP, the energy currency of the body.

The Lab4 Consortium

UK studies performed in Cambridge and Sheffield have used 2 capsules (25 billion) of Adult Acidophilus and Bifidus and have confirmed that that Lab4 probiotics can provide real benefits in supporting digestive and immune health.

The Lab4 consortium of probiotic bacteria has been incorporated into many popular brands of probiotic and has benefited thousands of people for over 15 years. It is one of the most studied probiotic cultures in the world.

Probiotics are the friendliest types of bacteria which are found in the normal ‘microflora’, and there is increasing evidence that significant health benefits can frequently be observed if we increase their intake by supplementation.

“5% of our total energy comes from the breakdown of fibre by our microflora”

How is Microflora beneficial?

The microflora has a multitude of benefits – in fact, we couldn’t survive without it.

The main benefits of the microflora are:

  1. It helps us to digest food – especially certain types of fibre, providing us with about 5% of our total energy needs as well as being essential in helping us absorb the beneficial antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables.
  2. It acts as a barrier to infection – particularly in the intestine and genitourinary tract, where it forms a carpet-like layer and ‘blocks’ the entry of potentially harmful microorganisms. The reason certain types of infection such as diarrhoea, and ‘thrush’ are often associated with antibiotic use is because the antibiotics compromise this protective barrier allowing infection to occur.
  3. It helps drive the ‘correct’ development of the immune system in the newborn infant and then primes the immune system for the rest of our lives. Research increasingly suggests that this ‘priming’ helps protect against the development of allergies and possibly autoimmune disease
