What Are Spore Probiotics?
Are your daily probiotics spore-based? It’s the latest innovation in gut bacteria supplements—but what does it mean?
Spore-based probiotics are a powerful class of probiotics that are able to seed the digestive tract with healthy bacteria to support a healthy gut. Regular probiotics are a bit more fragile and might not survive stomach acid, room-temperature heat, or antibiotics.
Spore-based probiotics are hardier and are able to germinate in the small intestine which fortifies the integrity of the lining there.
Studies are still being conducted to find out how far the benefits of spore-based probiotics go, but in general it’s important to include probiotics as part of your daily routine. Modern diets high in processed foods can wreak havoc on the digestive systems and probiotics (paired with smart eating choices!) can help make the gut a healthy environment.
