How does Perfect Pass Probiotic compare to Saccharomyces Boulardii?
Saccharomyces Boulardii is effective. It does fit the scientific definition of what a probiotic is. It is, however, a probiotic fungus and not a bacteria.
It can be effective against diarrhea. However, it has limited function.
Can Perfect Pass Probiotics be taken if I have SIBO?
Yes. One of the most important effects of the bacillus spores is that they are able to “police” the organisms that grow in the gut.
They actually encourage and support the growth of the beneficial bacteria that are under populated while they help reduce the numbers of the bad bacteria that are over-grown. What they do is create a modulating effect on the microbiome.
Studies show actually alteration the gut flora when some strains colonize. Bacillus Subtilis HU58 is one such strain. Another important strain is bacillus clausii which has been used as a prescription treatment for SIBO for a number of years.
Is there a difference between the Bacillus Coagulans strain that is found in Perfect Pass Probiotics to other manufacturers?
The bacillus coagulans spores found in Perfect Pass Probiotics have been verified to be in 100% spore form. This is of major importance as spore formers aren’t able to survive its way to the intestines unless they are in spore form.
From what we understand, often, other products that may contain only 1 or 2 spores, do have some of those strains in spore form but the rest is in a vegetative cell form.
This makes them less effective.
Perfect Pass Probiotics contains 3 significant bacillus strains that work together in synergy. In nature, these bacillus spores aren’t found on their own.
They are typically in co-existence with other bacillus spores and they support one another in the human body. Each perform a different function and together they have a greater benefit as each of the strains produces a different set of micronutrients.
Can I get the benefit from similar probiotics by eating Greek yogurt?
No, all yogurts and kefir don’t work as ‘true’ probiotics.
Of course there is benefit as a result of the fermentation process and those benefits are contained in the product in the form of micro-nutrients.
But the probiotic strains used in yogurts and other fermented dairy products aren’t able to survive the harsh stomach and colonize in the gut. They provide a temporary effect.
Can I use this probiotic for Candida?
Yes, we see a reduction of candida symptoms when using the probiotic on a daily basis. Sometimes, people notice that their bowel movements may not look like it usually does for period of time as the yeast leaves the digetive system, however, that changes and positive results ensue.
