    From the school of “there is more of it so it must be good”. What negative aspects also correlate? Researchers also found that some marathon runners have elevated risk of heart attack.

    Aren't artery plaques the body's scabs, trying to protect damaged artery walls? Or is that just another of 177 gazillion hypotheses? It would fit with how even hyper-fit people have what most of us think of a fat people's issues.

    my working theory would be that many hyper-fit people are able to out exercise otherwise terrible diets. they won't have some of the otherwise easily visible issues as more sedentary people (body composition, getting winded from stairs, etc) but there can be underlying health problems as well.

    Not laughing.
    The effects are real. Reference

    It should make sense for endurance sports like cycling to want to get the most benefit out of the foods. Gut biota helps with that.

    The hard part is how to change the gut bacteria permanently.
    But don't think that some guys aren't considering it.

    Just remember, those marginal gains can come at a price. Don't buy whatever pill Froome starts selling after retirement.
    This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the bike.

    A drift from bacteria, but if you could get enough ecdysterone just from spinach and quinoa it would likely have a positive digestive impact, so to speak, I would guess.

    Something changed in my gut after I was prescribed a horse-pill antibiotic for a rampant infection in my thumb, along with a prescription for a probiotic to rebuild flora the antibiotic wiped out of my system. Now I can't eat bread without my stomach bloating. Very very strange. I guess I need the little animals involved in digesting bread properly to be reinstalled.

    You tried sourdough? Bread with long fermentation time (required with sourdough, not with store bought yeast) is easier to digest. Some folks with ciliac (sp??) can eat sourdough without issues.

    Interesting, learn something new everyday.

    So for my next breakfast, maybe some kefir with sourdough toast and a big bowl of kimchi! =D

    Well, that's what I've read on the internet. Could be total horse shit.

    I also lost my sense of smell several years ago - or at least it became very dull. Twice Iíve had some of a friendís homemade kombucha and Iíve gotten my sense of smell back - not all the way but enough I noticed. Afterwards it trails away again. I think my asthma inhaler is killing something the kombucha puts back.

    Life is weird.
