Prebiotin: Supporting a Military Mission-Ready Force that is Physically, Psychologically, and Mentally Fit
Combating the Impact of High Stress Environments
We know that poor diet, medications like antibiotics, environmental exposures, and stress play a large role in disrupting the healthy balance of bacteria in the gut. However, service men and women face even more pressure on the gut microbiome from high stress training and combat situations, and from acute and chronic pain resulting from active duty injuries.
Over time, these conditions can lead to an increase in the “bad” bacteria that populate the gut. Undesirable bacteria release chemicals that cause inflammation and weaken the intestinal wall (leaky gut), allowing toxins to enter the blood stream, eventually causing disease conditions.
A 2017 study* with 73 soldiers in a military training environment determined that “Changes in intestinal microbiota composition and metabolism coincide with increased intestinal permeability in young adults under prolonged physiological stress. The authors of the 2017 study suggest “targeting the microbiota before stress exposure” to maintain a healthy gut.
