Why Your Body Needs Spore Probiotics

In a civilization that seeks simple solutions, we have a quick cure for almost everything that ails us.

Digestive issues… acne… joint and muscle pains… mood disorders…

It’s easy to get a prescription, pop a pill, and ignore the possible side effects.

But what if the best solution for your health issues isn’t found in the pharmacy?

What if the key that unlocks your wellness kingdom is actually…


Yes, you read that right.

Having healthy bacteria (specifically spore-based bacteria) = a healthy, happy mind and body.

Are you ready to explore this powerful, microscopic world? Let’s take a closer look at how probiotics work and how to choose the most effective ones for maximum health benefits.

What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are live bacteria found in food, drink, and supplements that are identical (or very similar) to the beneficial bacteria already present in your gut microbiome. They support your gut, immune system, and help bring your gut microbiome to its optimal balance.

Let’s take a closer look at how probiotics deliver these health benefits.

Why You Need Probiotics

Your body is already teeming with millions of bacteria. Some of these are good (probiotic) bacteria. Others are bad (pathogenic) bacteria.

Both types are found all over your body: in your mouth, nose, and throat, on your skin, and—perhaps most importantly—residing inside your digestive tract, in what’s known as your gut microbiome.

There’s only so much space within your gut. Ideally, the beneficial bacterial colonies will outweigh the colonies of pathogenic bacteria. When this happens, your gut will promote your physical, emotional, and mental health.

Unfortunately, the opposite is usually the case. Your bad bacteria outnumber the good bacteria, producing a state known as dysbiosis.

Not sure if your gut is in dysbiosis? Chances are, it is. Experts estimate that more than 90% of people have an unfavorable gut bacterial balance. See, most people are living with dysbiosis, they just don’t know it… they chalk up digestive issues, skin conditions, joint pain, and anxiety to a stressful lifestyle, allergies, and other causes.

But as strange as it may sound, nearly every health issue that you experience maps back to an imbalance in your gut.

How Probiotics Help Your Body

More good probiotic bacteria in your gut makes it hard for the bad bacteria to hang around.

See, your gut has a limited amount of “real estate,”and more of the good guys crowds out the pathogenic bacteria. This allows the good bacteria to flourish, while the bad bacteria retreats. This bacterial balance moves your body away from harmful dysbiosis and back into its best, healthiest state.

How to Get More Probiotics

With their undeniable health benefits, probiotics should be part of any wellness routine.

Here are the best ways to get more probiotics for a healthier mind and body.

Probiotics in Food and Drinks

Probiotics occur naturally in certain foods and drinks, especially those that have been fermented.

During fermentation, the bacteria and yeast that occur naturally in these foods break down sugars, producing alcohol or acids. This chemical process turns one type of food into a different food. For example, fermented soybeans can be made into tempeh, natto, or miso; fermented cabbage (or other vegetables) is used to make sauerkraut.

Good bacteria thrive in the environment created during fermentation, multiplying and strengthening their colonies. Bad bacteria, on the other hand, don’t survive easily in this environment.

The result? Delicious, nutritious foods filled with gut-healthy probiotics. And even better, most of them are easily found in your local grocery store.

Some of the most popular options for a probiotic-friendly diet include:

  • Kefir
  • Kimchi
  • Kombucha
  • Miso
  • Natto
  • Sauerkraut
  • Soft cheese (check labels)
  • Sourdough bread
  • Tempeh
  • Yogurt

However, one of the drawbacks to probiotic foods is the uniquely strong, sour taste and odor created during fermentation, which doesn’t appeal to everybody.

In addition, while consuming probiotic foods is beneficial, you likely will not get enough probiotics—or can miss out on important strains—from food alone, which is why supplements are the best and easiest way to keep your gut microbiome in healthy balance.

Probiotic Supplements

Probiotic supplements contain strains of beneficial bacteria, and they can be taken in a more easily ingested pill or powder form.

But here’s a truth that surprises many people: most probiotic supplements don’t work.

See, in order for your probiotic supplement to do its job, it has to “arrive alive” in your gut microbiome. Unfortunately, that’s not so easy.

  • Internal Conditions: Your probiotic has to navigate a treacherous path before its final destination, passing through a harsh environment that includes bile, digestive enzymes, and stomach acid. While necessary for digestion, research shows that they kill 99.99% of probiotic strains on contact… rendering your supplement completely ineffective.
  • Temperature: A lot of probiotic strains can’t be kept at room temperature and require refrigeration. This makes survivability within your body highly unlikely. Think about it. If these probiotics can’t survive ambient temperature, how will they survive your 98.6 degree internal temperature?

The sad reality is that the vast majority of probiotic supplements die long before they reach your gut.

But don’t let that discourage you from taking probiotics. There’s good news, too!

Clinical research shows that there are a handful of probiotic strains that will make it to your gut microbiome fully alive and fully potent.

The Top Probiotic Choice: Spore Probiotics

When it comes to probiotic supplements, one option clearly stands out: spore probiotics.

A spore-based probiotic contains beneficial bacteria found in soil, dirt, and other natural organisms. They’re rich and dense, chock-full of the benefits that only Mother Nature can provide.

Years ago, humans consumed these naturally when we picked produce from our gardens Unfortunately, the combination of genetically modified, chemical-laden foods, the over-sanitization of natural foods, and over-processed Western diets means that we rarely, if ever, consume healthy spore probiotics like we used to. (So thank goodness for modern supplements!)

Here’s what makes spore probiotics so unique.

Regular Probiotics vs. Spore Probiotics

Traditional probiotics tend to be one of two strains: Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium.

Despite being overwhelmingly common, they are incredibly ineffective. In fact, most of these won’t even make it to your gut microbiome. Either your stomach acids or your internal body temperature will kill them well before they can begin to turn your health around.

And if they don’t make it to your gut microbiome alive, how can they possibly impact your health?

A spore-based probiotic such as “Spore Bacillus” bacteria, on the other hand, is designed to survive these harsh environments. [1]

When conditions get rough, spore bacillus bacteria erect a tough, armor-like outer shell (known as an endospore) that allows them to survive your digestive environment. This is how they make it all the way to your gut healthy, strong, and ready to do their job!

Once they arrive, they lower their natural armor and muscle their way into your large intestine. There, they crowd out bad bacteria, eliminate harmful toxins and microbes, and work to rebalance your gut so your colonies of beneficial bacteria can thrive.

Choosing the Right Probiotic

If you’ve tried probiotics in the past with no success, know this: The right probiotic will make all the difference for your health.

Here are some important things to keep in mind when you choose a probiotic supplement.

Choose a Spore Bacillus Strain

We already discussed the superiority of spore probiotics. But the right bacterial strain will give you the powerhouse results you want for a healthy gut and supported immune system.

But with so many different strains on the market, which one is best?

When in doubt, go with the science. Specific “Spore Bacillus” strains have been proven effective in numerous clinical studies. [2] These are the most effective strains of beneficial bacteria, with unparalleled strength and an astonishing ability to self-protect.

Make Sure It’s DNA Verified

A University of California study found that only 1 in 16 probiotics actually contained the strains and potency listed on their labels. [3] With over 93% of probiotic supplements, you have no idea what’s actually going into your body.

By and large, the probiotic industry isn’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). [4]

So how can you be sure of what you’re really getting in your probiotic supplement?

Check labels and websites for proof of DNA verification to ensure that you know exactly what you’re getting. Make sure you read carefully and contact the manufacturer if you have any questions at all about their ingredients.

Opt for Quality Over Quantity

Some companies really try to push “the more, the better” marketing hype with their probiotics. They boast about the billions of bacterial strains they contain, making you think they give you better results.

But science has already proven the truth: quality beats quantity, every single time.

Forget about those “everything but the kitchen sink” unproven strains. Your best choice is a probiotic with fewer strains that:

  • have been clinically tested
  • are proven to work well together
