Bacillus subtilis is a bacteria that is commonly found in water, soil, air and decomposing plant residue.
This spore has an extraordinary ability to survive harsh environments such as extreme heat and acidity. More importantly this spore is found in your gut.
In fact, it’s one of the “good guys”. You want bacillus subtilis spores in your gut.
These are the spores which produce endospores that make positive changes to your gut and support your immune system.
You’ve probably heard that increasing the diversity of your gut microbes is a good thing. You’ve maybe even taken different formulas of probiotics. Maintaining a proper ratio of good spores in your gut is crucial for maintaining good gut health and a strong immune system.
That’s a big reason why many people take probiotics for conditions like Leaky Gut, IBS, Crohn’s, and Ulcerative Colitis. If you have been taking probiotics and still not finding relief you may want to consider taking Bacillus Subtilis spores and here’s why.
Bacillus Spores are resistant to the harsh stomach acid environment which allows it to get into the digestive system and do its work.
Bacillus Spores are able to suppress the growth of harmful bacteria.
Bacillus Spores strengthen the mucosal lining and enhance the growth of other good strains such as lactobacillus spores in the gut.
Bacillus spores significantly repair damage to the intestinal lining in the gut. These tight junctions, when not performing optimally, allow toxins to leek into the bloodstream. (Leaky Gut) Click Here to Read More
Bacillus spores play a role in reconditioning the body’s metabolism. When combined with a diet rich in healthy fibers and low sugar, this spore turns the body into a fat burning machine. Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan has been studying spores for the last 15 years, he says, “If there wasn’t reason enough before to improve gut health, this probiotic spore might now be the one “magic pill” we’ve been seeking for long-term, healthy and sustainable weight management”
Which Probiotics Contain Bacillus Spores?
We recommend Perfect Pass Probiotics to our clients. Perfect Pass contains 3 pharmaceutical grade strains of bacillus spores.
These bacillus spores are able to survive stomach acid. They make lasting changes in the gut to heal the gut and provide relief of symptoms.
Each of these bacillus spores has a distinct function and synergistically contributes to the combined effectiveness of this probiotic.
We are excited to share the latest information on the Microbiome with you where we interview Ross Pelton, the Scientific Director for Essential Formulas. He is a Health Longevity Coach, Pharmacist and Clinical Nutritionist. Today we asked Ross to talk to us about the role probiotics have in supporting our immune system.
In addition, Rossis also a clinical nutritionist and helps people with diet, nutrition and natural therapies. He truly is an expert in his field.
In case you missed out, we have posted all our interviews with Ross in one convenient place. He shared with us exciting new information on gut health, the Microbiome and the Pathobiome. Click Here to see all of our videos in the Microbiome Series.
How is Your Immune System Supported by Probiotics?
We asked Ross how spores in Dr. Ohhiras formula support our immune system. Heres what he had to tell us:
First of all the bacteria in Dr. Ohhiras probiotics support the growth and proliferation of your innate bacteria which gives them the capability of transforming your microbiome.
Spores produce Short Chain Fatty Acids. These are slightly acidic compounds produced by the probiotics which create an optimal acid balance in your intestinal tract. This acid balance supports the growth of good bacteria and suppresses growth of the bad bacteria.
Spores also produce bacteriocins and defensins. Think of these as natural antibiotics in your system.
Spores produce hydrogen peroxide which suppresses the growth of candida yeast.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics have a broader number of different bacteria. A broader range of bacteria means a healthier microbiome and immune system.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are truly unique, they have a different beginning than other probiotics on the market. Their spores are fed from natural ingredients like mountain spring water, organic fruits, and vegetables that have been fermented for three to five years.
