British Rowing partners with Clasado Biosciences

Bimuno has Informed Sport accreditation; a quality assurance program that independently tests supplements for a wide range of substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency

Clasado Biosciences has announced that its prebiotic supplement Bimuno has become an Official Supplier of British Rowing, the governing body that represents the sport of rowing in England and trains and selects the GB Rowing Team.

The company has provided the GB Rowing Team athletes with Bimuno Travelaid, a prebiotic supplement in pastille form designed to support a balanced gut while travelling.

The pastilles are powered by proprietary prebiotic ingredient Bimuno, which uses non-digestible galactooligosaccharides (GOS) technology to enhance the production and activity of bifidobacteria, which is known to provide additional benefits to health and wellbeing, supporting areas such as immune function, mental and sleep health, as well as athletic performance.

Per Rehné, CEO at Clasado, said: “We are delighted to support British Rowing and its talented athletes. Even while sporting events may be postponed, training regimes continue. Clasado specialises in using the power of the gut microbiome to support physical and mental health from within, which makes a science-backed, convenient prebiotic such as Bimuno a perfect match for the British Rowing athletes as they prepare for competition.

“While the science connecting our gut health to sporting performance may be relatively new, it becomes increasingly clear that good gut bacteria have a part to play in how effectively the human body responds to physical effort and recovery. Alongside the additional benefits to physical and cognitive health, it’s clear to see why athletes today are focused on their dietary nutrition and gut health.”

Wendy Martinson, Lead Nutritionist at British Rowing, said: “The inclusion of key nutrition strategies to support gut health in our athletes can influence their health, well-being and recovery. his impacts their ability to train to the high level required to be competitive at international competition. Bimuno prebiotic products, through their effect on the gut microbiome, will play an important role in our preparation towards Tokyo 2020 (now to be held in 2021) and Paris 2024.”
