Recruiting for Gut Microbiome Study at IM Kona

Dear 2022 IM Kona Qualifiers,

We are currently recruiting for what will be the first study on probiotic supplementation and the gut microbiome of triathletes who are participating in the Ironman World Championship. For those interested, please complete this brief questionnaire and we will get back to you ASAP:


Please share with anyone who you think might be interested. Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me via email ([email protected]).

All participants will be provided with a personalized report of their gut microbiome characteristics and we are currently working with Supersapiens to grant access to a continuous glucose monitor for those interested.

Thanks so much!

John Molphy

  • Just as a bit of background to this, we have just began analysis of microbiome sample we collected from IM Muncie last year. The aim from this new study is to see what effects a probiotic supplement has on the bacteria in our guts, and the metabolic processes that they undertake. Would love to see as many people involved as we can.
