Fatigue caused by summer heat is a typical indefinite complaint along with anorexia, loss of sleep, stress, lack of motivation and, in some cases, catching a cold. Yogurt fermented withsubsp.OLL1073R-1 has been shown to stimulate the immune system and reduce the risk of catching colds. Here, we conducted a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial to investigate whether ingesting this yogurt could ameliorate summer heat fatigue in 49 healthy males (median age 40.0± 6.0 years; 30⁻49 years) who felt fatigued every summer. Fatigue was evaluated by visual analogue scales (VAS) and the balance of sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous systems. After 12 weeks of ingestion in early autumn, the VAS fatigue scores in the yogurt group were lower than those of the placebo group. These results indicate that yogurt fermented withOLL1073R-1 can ameliorate summer heat fatigue lasting up to early autumn.
