DE111® Probiotic Provides Benefits for Body Fat Percentage and Athletic Performance, According to Latest Study
Researchers have found that consumption of the probiotic strain DE111® in conjunction with adequate post-workout nutrition can improve body composition and indices of athletic performance during offseason training in collegiate athletes.
The study found that compared to the placebo, the probiotic DE111 produced statistically significantly improvements in the reduction of body fat percentage, and a strong trend indicating improved performance of the deadlift exercise. “These findings are encouraging for athletic individuals, both professional and recreational, that are looking for ways to naturally achieve maximum results from their training efforts,” said Dr. John Deaton, vice president of science and technology at Deerland Enzymes and Probiotics.
Deerland Enzymes & Probiotics has been granted a Natural Product Number (NPN) for Bacillus subtilis DE111, a genome sequenced and clinically studied probiotic strain that supports gut health.

The enzymes and probiotics market makes up a large part of the growing $37 billion dietary supplement industry, and its rise is driven by consumer preferences for quality supplements.

Washington, D.C., January 9, 2017—The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the leading trade association for the dietary supplement and functional food industry, and the International Probiotics Association (IPA), an international membership organization of probiotic companies, today announce the development of scientifically-based best practices guidelines for the labeling, storing, and stability testing of dietary supplements and functional foods containing probiotics.
