The Nutriceutical Bovine Colostrum Truncates The Increase In Gut Permeability Caused By Heavy Exercise In Athletes

Effect Decrease
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-2 Weeks
Number of Subjects 12
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 20g colostrum daily for two weeks prior to a VO2 max training session, relative to placebo, failed to improve physical performance but was able to reduce the increase in intestinal permeability that occurs with high intensity exercise where body heat is elevated.

The increase in GLP-1 seen during exercise in placebo was attenuated with colostrum; other biomarkers (serum NPY, VIP, or ghrelin) were not affected.
