Bacillus subtilis is a probiotic bacteria strain.
- Boosts the immune system.
- Helps fight infections and external aggression.
Bacillus subtilis is a specific, clinically-tested, and patented strain of probiotic bacteria for improving natural defenses and helping to fight infection and external aggressions. You can receive numerous benefits from using a Bacillus subtilis supplement.
Specially selected and studied for its immunostimulant properties, this strain is listed in the Collection nationale française de cultures de microorganismes (CNCM) as no. I-2745. It is also known as grass or hay bacillus and is naturally found in soil. It can also be found in the human body throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Medical professionals often recommend taking a Bacillus subtilis probiotic supplement to anyone concerned about their digestive health or immune support, specifically.
Why do people choose to buy Bacillus subtilis probiotics? It could have something to do with all the Bacillus subtilis probiotic benefits. While more research is needed, here are just a few of the potential Bacillus subtilis health benefits that have been studied through extensive clinical research.
While many of the benefits of Bacillus subtilis center around gut health, studies show that healthy gut bacteria enhances overall immune system functionality. When the body’s gut system is working as it should, it’s possible to combat obesity, boost immunity and ward off illnesses easier.
In light of this information, it makes sense for consumers looking for a boost to overall well-being to consider taking Bacillus subtilis probiotics.
Pre-clinical and clinical trials have shown that taking Bacillus subtilis supplements significantly boosts immunity in older people, protecting them from common winter infections, in particular.
And, unlike some other strains, this high-quality bacteria is spore-forming, meaning it creates cells that are particularly thermo-resistant, offering a number of advantages:
This double-blind clinical trial involved 44 subjects aged 60 and over. For four months during winter, they took 20mg of Bacillus subtilis for ten days per month. Results showed:
Based on these factors, Bacillus subtilis can be freely recommended for use by adults, especially older individuals whose immune systems may need a boost during winter. This probiotic supplement can be taken in conjunction with Vitamin D3, Vitamin C and Zinc to boost immunity support because all of these are recognized as immunostimulant properties.
|Daily dose: 1 capsule
Number of doses per pack: 60
|Amount per dose|
|Bacillus subtilis BSS001 (LMGS31763)||30 mg (3.109 CFU)|
|Other ingredients: Acacia gum, white rice bran.|
We recommend taking one 30 mg Bacillus subtilis capsule each day for maximum immune system support. Each Bacillus subtilis capsule is designed to withstand stomach acidity, ensuring the supplement inside does not release until it makes it to the gut. These strong and protective capsules help maximize the absorption rate. When taking probiotics containing Bacillus subtilis, make sure you keep them refrigerated.
