Multi-Probiotic Spore + SBC
Multi-Probiotic Spore + SBC by Douglas Laboratories is a unique combination of spore-based bacillus strains plus Saccharomyces boulardii (SBC).
Both types of probiotics provide a clinically studied approach to supporting bowel comfort and regularity, gastrointestinal function, and immune health. Spore probiotics are more stable and behave differently than traditional probiotic species by germinating and proliferating in the small intestine.
- Maintains healthy gut barrier function and permeability
- Supports bowel comfort, regularity, and GI function
- Provides immunomodulatory support
Functions and Mechanism of Action
The human body carries nearly 100 trillion bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. Probiotics are those “good” bacteria that help keep the intestines healthy and assist in digestion and nutrient absorption. Researchers are also finding evidence that certain bacteria in the gut influence the development of aspects of the immune system.
Figure 1. Multi-Probiotic® Spore + SBC mechanism of action. Spore probiotics Bacillus clausii, Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus subtilis, and Saccharomyces boulardii promote bowel comfort and regularity, gastrointestinal function, and immune health by supporting 1) growth of beneficial probiotic organisms, 2) defenses against undesirable species, 3) innate and adaptive immunity, and 4) mucosal resilience and barrier integrity.
