Support Gut Health with MegaSpore Biotic
Written by Dr. Irina Strelyuk
Gut health is central to proper immune function and overall wellbeing. Approximately 70-80 percent of the immune system is found in our gastrointestinal tract. One way to support gut health and the immune system is through the use of probiotics.
MegaSporeBiotic from Microbiome Labs is a one hundred percent spore based probiotic that is designed to help recondition the environment of the gut by promoting microbial diversity.
MegaSporeBiotic is a blend of 5 Bacillus spore bacteria that are able to sense (quorum sensing) the environment of the gut and tweak any imbalances in the microorganisms.
Let’s take a closer look at the different Bacillus strains in MegaSporeBiotic and their benefits:
Bacillus indicus (HU36™) produces carotenoids such as lycopene, astaxanthin, beta-carotene, and lutein as well as quinols and vitamins.
Bacillus subtilis (HU58™) produces nattokinase and vitamin K2 and supports healthy GALT (Gut-Associated Lymphoid Tissue) development.
Bacillus coagulans (SC-208) produce an L+ optical form of lactic acid and supports immune function.
Bacillus licheniformis (SL-307) produces proteases helpful for protein digestion and produces a full spectrum of B vitamins.
Bacillus clausii (SC-109) helps support immune function.
MegaSporeBiotic can be helpful in reducing allergies and asthma, helping the body fight colds and cases of flu, helping treat SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), reducing gut inflammation associated with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, helping with detoxification of the intestinal tract including from pesticides such as glyphosate, reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, and more.
No! Spore-based probiotics are naturally stable to any changes in heat, acidity, and moisture. Once they are in the intestines, the spores shift out of their spore form and begin to colonize the gut.
This is great news and makes MegaSporeBiotic super convenient to bring if you are traveling and want to have a probiotic with you.
MegaSporeBiotic is generally well tolerated by most people. For some more sensitive individuals, if one full capsule is too strong, it is possible to open it up and sprinkle a smaller amount on food and adjust the amount based on tolerance.
