What Makes Spore-Based Probiotics So Powerful?
Whether you’re new to SBO Probiotics or an avid proponent of this type of probiotic, they’re worth talking about.
Soil based organisms or spore based organisms, are found in the dirt and their powerful healing properties can help with anything from digestion, to mood, to potent immune support.
So, what’s important to know about SBOs?
Let’s start by taking it back to our ancestors.
SBO Probiotics and our ancestors?
Through our ancestors’ eating habits, they were likely getting a healthy (and natural) dose of probiotics every day!
They didn’t pick their fruit from the produce section and scrub it when they arrived home. Our ancestors grew fruit and vegetables, pulled them straight from the ground, and consumed them.
No triple-washed spinach for them! They were not a part of a hygiene-centric society; food was eaten as it was found and they were in regular, direct contact with the earth.
SBOs have been around for a long time… before we were even on this Earth!
There are more than 100 species of microbes found in the soil and our ancestors were consuming this powerful bacteria that was present on roots, low-growing leaves, and any fruits or vegetables that ended up on the ground.
Let’s talk sbo science
Just a bit of science! SBOs have a 3-stage life cycle: vegetative growth, sporulation, and germination. The spore structure preserves the bacteria in a dormant phase and protects against any outside threats or harm. When it’s consumed, it travels to the lower intestine where it comes alive. Like a seed, warm temps, moisture, and nutrients encourage the germination stage, causing it to emerge from dormancy. Soil-based probiotics are well-equipped to survive in the environment of the gut, and have been shown to take up residence there, where they can provide long-term health benefits to individuals of all ages.
How can sbos help support our health?
The scope of health benefits that SBOs provide is vast! SBOs can have positive effects on mood, skin, digestion, sleep, nutrient absorption, energy levels, and the health of your immune system. Check out a few facts about the power of SBOs:
- SBOs have been found to be beneficial for immune support. One specific strain of bacteria in SBOs helps with the production of immunoglobulin A (IgA), which plays a key role in supporting your immune system.
- A protein derived from SBOs has been able to restart the immune systems of people with various health issues
- SBOs can bring gut microbiota back to normalcy, which has shown tremendous effect on bowel function and other digestive concerns, such as stool consistency or gas production.
Are spore based probiotics safe?
SBOs are not literally taken from the ground and thrown in a bottle. SBOs are subject to the same standards and regulations as other probiotic supplements. They are monitored to ensure quality, but no matter what kind of strains you’re consuming, it’s essential to only ingest probiotics from a trusted company. While adverse symptoms are minimal, it might take some time experimenting to figure out your body’s preferred dose. Plus going slow is always our top tip for probiotic success.
Getting back to nature
The roots of SBOs are found right in the dirt! How much closer can you get to nature? Bacteria represent the oldest known life on the planet, with research dating back to 3.77 billion years ago! The modern, sterile, hygiene-focused environment that we live in doesn’t resemble how our ancestors lived. How has our lifestyle altered our interior ecosystems and affected our health? SBOs are a natural advantage that can truly change your life and your health!
At Lifted Naturals, we are proud to offer a mood-targeted SBO probiotic supplement, so that you can take advantage of this all-natural way to rebalance your microbiome.
We know not everyone responds well to the traditional probiotic species: Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria, and for those people, our product SBO Mood Boost might just be the perfect solution!
