Gut Health

The Little-known Microbe That Supports Strong Lungs and Healthy Breathing

When you’re feeling stuffed up, wheezy, and “tight” when you try to breath, you probably don’t give much thought to your gut.

But your gut microbiome – the trillions of bacteria that live in your gut – plays a surprisingly big role in respiratory health. 

And when your gut microbiome is out of balance (more bad bacteria than good), you can be more susceptible to respiratory challenges like allergies, asthma, colds, and infections.

That’s why researchers are getting excited about probiotics – Both in how they support the growth of our beneficial bacteria AND how they improve respiratory health… Read more here

And one spore-based probiotic in particular has been shown to deliver respiratory benefits in study after study...  


The Unique Benefits of Spore-based Probiotics

Spore probiotics aren’t the same as the regular probiotics you buy at the store. Unlike standard commercial probiotics, spore-based probiotics bring superior strength and resilience to the party. 

Among their many talents, spore probiotics can:

  • Survive extreme temperatures, from blazing heat to frozen tundra
  • Get through your highly acidic digestive system perfectly intact
  • Arrive in the gut 100% alive and ready to go to work
  • Neutralize and starve out harmful bacteria
  • Encourage your beneficial bacteria to thrive

Along with all of these plusses, the Bacillus clausii spore strain brings its own particular benefits… Especially when it comes to respiratory health. 

In fact, this particular probiotic has been tested in several human clinical trials – including trials with young children – for safety and effectiveness with extremely positive results...

Kids Breathe Easier with Bacillus Clausii

If you have kids in your life – especially young kids – you know they are germ magnets. 

Upper respiratory infections get passed around like Play-Doh in the daycares and school yards. That’s why so many children seem to always be sneezing and coughing and dealing with runny noses.

Turns out that Bacillus clausii may help with that.

In a 3-month pilot study, researchers found that Bacillus clausii helped address recurrent respiratory challenges in children. 

The study included 80 kiddos who attended daycare. Half of the children received Bacillus clausii and the other 40 didn’t... And the probiotic made a huge difference.

The children who got Bacillus clausii:

  • Felt better up to 4 days faster AND
  • Got about 33% fewer respiratory issues than the control group


Bacillus Clausii Regulates Immune Function to Promote Free Breathing

One of the ways Bacillus clausii keeps you breathing freely is by regulating immune system proteins called cytokines.

Bacillus clausii encourages extra production of specific cytokines (such as IFN-gamma) that help fight infections. 

At the same time, the spore probiotic reduces production of other cytokines like IL-4, which can hamper a healthy inflammatory response.

By helping the immune system in this way, Bacillus clausii drives optimal respiratory health, particularly in people with nasal allergies. 

Plus, Bacillus clausii also seems to help reduce allergic respiratory issues. In one clinical trial, teens with nasal allergies who took Bacillus clausii were able to significantly reduce the amount of allergy medicine they took.

Bacillus Clausii Benefits Go Well Beyond Breathing

Like other spore probiotics, Bacillus clausii improves overall health in a variety of different ways. 

Some of those benefits come from its positive impact on the gut microbiome… others come from the beneficial compounds (like nutrients) that Bacillus clausii produces.

Among its many benefits, Bacillus clausii has been shown in scientific studies to:

And check this out:

Bacillus clausii stands alone among its spore-based peers via its unique ability to resist damage from several common antibiotics. 

Normally, antibiotic therapies wipe out beneficial bacteria in the gut microbiome, paving the way for harmful, opportunistic infections (such as C. difficile). 

By surviving and standing its ground even during prolonged antibiotic treatment, Bacillus clausii helps maintain and restore a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut microbiome. 

In turn, Bacillus clausii helps stand guard at the gates of your gut and keep opportunistic pathogens from taking over.
