What is a spore-former probiotic?

Spore-forming bacteria are unique probiotic microorganisms capable of transforming into spores to withstand extreme conditions. This dormant state, allows them to survive high temperatures, acidity, and other rigorous processing challenges. Their resilience makes them particularly valuable in food applications, as they can endure the harsh journey through the digestive tract to reach the intestines. Once there, spores germinate, transforming from a
dormant state to an active state and effectively delivering their health benefits where they are most needed. This capability positions spore-forming probiotics as a ROBUST choice for maintaining digestive health and supporting overall wellness.

Bacillus subtilis DE111® spore-forming probiotic

Bacillus subtilis is a soil-based organism and is naturally occurring in the gut of most animals and humans. It has been consumed for centuries in Japan through the pantry staple natto, sticky fermented soybeans. B.subtilis is one of the first bacterial species to be studied, having been first isolated and described in 1872.

Produced by ADM® DE111® has 10 published human clinical trials, 30 efficacy studies, have shown the strain can effectively support

a) Digestive health - A clinical study evaluating the effect of DE111®(5 billion CFU) on digestive health demonstrated DE111® was able to maintain healthy levels of cholesterol, glucose and triglycerides, indicating that DE111® may be involved in normal breakdown of complex carbohydrates, sugars and fats. A clinical study also showed an improvement in stool quality

b) Immune Health : In a study involving 44 participants aged 20-62, researchers observed after four weeks of daily consumption of the probiotic DE111® at 1 billion CFU, a significant decrease from baseline in the basal levels of several immune cell populations, including CD3+ T cells and NKT cells. Moreover, the probiotic group showed an increased immune response in cells with an induced inflammation (ex vivo). The
results indicate that DE111® may modulate the immune system through action on both innate (rapidresponse) and adaptive (slow response) immune cell
types.

c) Affect the growth rate of several rypes of undesirable bacteria,

d) Spur normal immune reaction of intestinal cells,

e) Increase the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs)

Bacillus subtilis HU58® Spore-forming probiotic

Clinically tested, these probiotic spores support a healthy gut microbiome by encouraging the growth of other beneficial microbes, and lead to an increase in the production of beneficial short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which are known to help maintain a healthy intestinal barrier and promote anti-inflammatory effects.

Bacillus clausii SC109®

This is a strain of B. Clausii that is known to have antimicrobial and immunomodulatory properties supporting its use for the treatment and prevention of intestinal bacterial flora disorders, with particular efficacy suggested for diarrhea according to clinical trial data and a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Weizmannia coagulans SC208®

Previously known as Bacillus coagulans SC208 isn't naturally found in the body, but it produces lactic acid in the gut. It helps to relieve symptoms of constipation and IBS.

How Long Does It Take for Probiotics to Work?

Typically to notice significant changes in ones symptoms is between 2 to 3 weeks, but it can take longer depending on how inflamed and unbalanced your microbiome was to begin with. Everyone's gut is unique ! 

We reccommend to eat one bar every other day for the first week to adjust your gut gradually.
