Gut Health for Gains:

Optimizing Assimilation to Promote Anabolism


Dysbiosis (poor gut health) promotes anabolic resistance through several mechanisms including local and systemic inflammation, oxidative stress, and poor macro- and micronutrient absorption/assimilation.

In this lecture, Dr. Jackson will:

  1. Explain what “good and poor gut health” status means
  2. Define dysbiosis and symbiosis
  3. Describe the impact of poor gut health on inflammation, oxidative stress, digestion, nutrient assimilation, and anabolic resistance
  4. Discuss the gut-muscle-axis and its putative impact on the adaptation to training
  5. Consider the typical strength athlete’s diet in the context of gut health
  6. Provide actionable recommendations to promote gut health in the athletic context
