A recent study held by Dr. Stephanie-Anne Girard looked at the effects of Lafti L10 on reducing upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) in fatigued athletes and healthy athletes. They were also looking to see the mechanism of Lafti L10 on the immunity of athletes who train for most of the year.
“They found clinical outcomes that were very significant,” she said. “[They] found a significant decrease in the duration of the symptoms.” In addition, they observed a significant reduction in the number of symptoms, and a significant reduction in the number of infected days.
In 2009, the British Medical Bulletin published a study that demonstrated a higher rate of URTI in athletes than in lesser active individuals. If you have athletes as patients with a significant history of URTIs, consider using probiotics to help decrease and prevent symptoms.
