FTP #26: Jamie Pugh, PhD - Probiotic supplementation for health and performance: a balanced overview

Fuel The Pedal podcast

In the last years, research in the area of probiotics has progressed considerably and significant advances have been made in the selection and characterization of specific probiotic cultures. As expected, a growing number of dietary supplements containing probiotics are commercially available worldwide, and the number of products being marketed and claiming to improve the health and performance of athletes continues to increase substantially with common oversimplifications and generalization of a complex topic. In this episode with Dr. Jamie Pugh we’ll present a balanced overview on Probiotic supplementation while recognising how complex the gut microbiota is and the common misinterpretations and limitations of the current research on probiotics use in athletes.

FTP #6: Jamie Pugh, PhD - Feeling lighter from start to finish: Minimizing gastrointestinal symptoms in cyclists

Fuel The Pedal podcast

As Sports Nutritionists besides having to properly fuel cyclists during training and racing, there is also an additional challenge we often face. And that challenge is to try our best to minimize GI symptoms in cyclists. We can prepare a rider for months but if one key meal in a moment surrounding or during the race goes wrong, we can jeopardize months of preparation and condition the rider’s performance for that day. On the other hand, we must make sure these athletes ingest a rather high amount of CHO-rich foods while on the bike in order to be able to sustain higher intensities in latter stages of the race. But this high exercise intensity and high quantity of ingested CHO are also some of the main factors that can also limit gastric emptying, CHO absorption and lead to some GI symptoms to occur, which may have serious consequences for cyclists. On this episode Dr. Jamie Pugh helps us understand the main causes and practical strategies to minimize GI symptoms in cycling. That is why the name of this episode is "Feeling lighter from start to finish..."
