What is Ortho Spore IG?

Ortho Spore IG is a spore-based probiotic designed to promote a healthy gut microflora, protect mucosal integrity, and relieve small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). The unique capabilities of this product include the Bacillus spore-forming probiotic strains that stay in the dormant protective state in the GI environment, yet activate when needed to target, colonize and recondition the gut. Also uniquely added is the serum-derived bovine immunoglobulins that bind to microbes and toxins that are common in SIBO, for proper elimination.

Gastrointestinal Issues? SIBO?

SIBO is a condition that occurs with overabundance of commensal bacteria from the colon present in the small intestine. The small intestines rely on balanced microbiota and probiotics for proper health. Immunoglobulins contribute to the balance of microbiota by influencing the intestinal environment, including pH, organism diversity, and immune signaling. Probiotics, unlike SIBO, have been widely studied. Probiotics not only have broad GI benefits, but also positively impact the immune system. Probiotics are live organisms, so they often have a maximum shelf date. However, with the Bacillus spores included in the Ortho Spore IG products, they can remain dormant until they reach favorable environments, like the human gastrointestinal tract. When in a dormant form, Bacillus surrounds itself with an endospore, which is a tough outer shell that naturally protects it from light, heat, pressure, acid, lack of oxygen, and other environmental factors. Bacillus changes into its active form in the large intestine to colonize the gut and encourages microbial diversity of gut bacteria.

What does Ortho Spore IG Include?

Bacillus coagulans

Bacillus coagulans has been shown to increase the commensal GI microbiota. It has been studied to relieve GI discomfort and improve stool consistency. Studies have also shown that supplementing with B. coagulans significantly improved bowel movements in healthy adults, as well as decreased abdominal discomfort.

Bacillus clausii

Bacillus clausii is commonly used as a probiotic to promote balance in the microbiome and has helped individuals with SIBO specifically.

Bacillus subtilis

Bacillus subtilis has been shown to relieve GI distress in patients. Studies have shown that supplementation stimulate effective relief of GI symptoms.

Serum-Derived Bovine Immunoglobulins

Research shows that probiotics are a natural choice for supporting beneficial bacteria in the gut. Added immunoglobulins have a binding effect on the gut barrier function and decreases microbe and toxins. Pairing immunoglobulins with probiotics are a huge benefit, as they boost the immune response and overall immune tolerance.
