The role of gut microbiome on endurance exercise capacity

Gut microbiome’s role in exercise performance is an emerging field with limited empirical data. There is a need for evidence to demonstrate if and how the gut microbiome can improve exercise performance.

This study aims to elucidate whether dietary manipulation can elucidate the role of gut microbiome and its metabolites on exercise endurance capacity.
