If you have not yet heard, get ready to start hearing more about Spore Probiotics. This blog is intended to give you information about what Spore Probiotics are, how they differ from normal probiotics, who should take them.
What Is The Ortho Spore IG Probiotic?
Ortho Spore IG is a spore-based, broad-spectrum probiotic formula designed to promote a healthy gut microflora, protect mucosal integrity, and relieve small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Each capsule provides key Bacillus spore-forming probiotic strains that remain in a dormant protective state in the harsh gastrointestinal environment yet become active on target to colonize and recondition the gut. Uniquely included in this formula are serum-derived bovine immunoglobulins that bind to microbes and toxins that are common in SIBO, for elimination.
How Do They Differ From Normal Probiotics
Probiotics are live organisms and must be shelf-stable through the expiration date, so they can be precisely delivered to the intestinal tract to have maximum benefit. Bacillus spores can transition between a dormant and an active form, depending on the environment. Bacillus spores remain dormant in harsh environments until they reach more favorable environments like the human gastrointestinal tract. In its dormant spore form, Bacillus surrounds itself with an endospore, which is a tough, natural outer shell that protects it from light, heat, pressure, acid, lack of oxygen, and other environmental factors. Bacillus changes into its active form in the large intestine to colonize the gut to encourage microbial diversity of commensal gut bacteria. In its active form, Bacillus can increase microbial diversity by changing the pH, and increasing the production of short-chain fatty acids. The combination of specific strains, particularly Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus clausii, and Bacillus subtilis, relieve symptoms for common GI complaints and reinforce healthy gut function.
Who Should Take Spore Probiotics
People with SIBO can benefit greatly from Spore Probiotics. SIBO is a condition that occurs when there is an overabundance of commensal bacteria from the colon present in the small intestine. SIBO is largely overlooked and more prevalent than previously thought. The health of the small intestines relies on balanced microbiota, and probiotics and immunoglobulins can contribute to that balance by having a positive influence on the intestinal environment, including pH, organism diversity, and immune signaling. SIBO remains an area of research, but it is understood that dysbiosis and motility are key components. Such dysbiosis of the small intestine can be attributable to low stomach acid, medications, or alcohol consumption.
