Description Usage Supplement Facts The majority of probiotics currently available are bacteria which are non-spore forming, such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria. These probiotic strains have been widely studied for their health benefits and are a popular choice for use in dietary supplements or cold-processed foods, such as yogurt.* Spore forming bacteria are a diverse group of very hardy bacteria, characterized by their ability to form endospores to protect themselves in varying conditions such as high temperatures and the acidic environment of the gut. The Bacillus subtilis species of microorganism has been known for almost 100 years, having first been isolated and described in 1915. It is considered to be a normal inhabitant of the gut in animals and humans.* Bacillus subtilis has the ability to form spores that protect the microbes from harsh conditions until they enter an environment ripe for germination, such as the GI tract. Because of this spore-forming ability, Bacillus subtilis offers additional benefits as a probiotic:* Supports healthy gut functions* Stimulates normal microflora in the gut* Promotes digestive health* Supports normal digestion* Promotes a healthy GI tract* Supports normal fat metabolism* Supports healthy immune functions* Promotes urinary tract health* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
