Reasons I Recommend Spore Based Probiotics When You Have Gut Inflammation

Gut inflammation is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide and when it comes to probiotics, Soil based probiotics aka spore based probiotics and the impact they have on gut inflammation could be a game changer for you.

Spore-based probiotics are soil-based microorganisms and what makes them so special, and an area of intense research Is there ability to survive harsh conditions such as extreme temperatures, high pressure, and the harsh stomach acid found in our stomach. (*)

Why Spore Based Probiotics for Gut Inflammation

This is one of the reasons they stand out compared to traditional probiotics.

But another reason they have gained so much popularity is the effect they have on the immune system and its connection to chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is a root cause in most if not all disease. Which is why it’s so important to not only identify chronic inflammation but also to take the steps necessary to get this inflammation under control.

If you or a loved one suffers with obesity, atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, mental health disorders or an autoimmune disease, you probably don’t think that inflammation in the gut has much do with these health problems. But this gut-immune-inflammation connection. (*) Is one of the hottest areas of research today.

Well, hey there I’m Dr Hagmeyer and I want to welcome you to my Channel. Today’s video hits on an important topic that I think many people with chronic health problem are struggling with.

In today’s video, I want to share some information on a very special probiotic called soil-based probiotics or spore-based probiotics, what they do, why they are so important when you have chronic inflammation and how these special probiotics can help you when you have the health problems I just mentioned.

So, as I mentioned earlier, Chronic inflammation often starts in the gut and this inflammation Is intimately connected with our immune system. (*) Within our GI tract is a world within a world. There is a delicate balance of microorganisms including bacteria and yeast.

When the gut microbiome is disrupted, we call this intestinal dysbiosis or just simply gut dysbiosis, and this gut dysbiosis can have far reaching effects throughout our body. Intestinal dysbiosis leads to an overactive immune response and chronic inflammation.

While traditional probiotics have shown tremendous benefit, soil-based probiotics add another dimension of gut support to what we already have and this addition is so important. So, if you are not familiar with soil based or spore forming probiotics you might be wondering what they are and what makes them unique.

Benefits of Soil Based Probiotics

Understanding Soil-Based Probiotics:

So, quickly, Soil-based probiotics, aka spore-forming probiotics, are derived from the natural environment, primarily soil…dirt. (*)

They are unique because they have a protective spore layer that enables them to survive harsh conditions, such as temperature fluctuations and stomach acid. Once in the intestine, these spores transform into metabolically active bacteria, exerting their beneficial effects especially when there is inflammation.

The Role of Gut Inflammation:

Gut inflammation arises from various factors, including a poor diet, stress, infections, medications, and imbalances in the gut microbiota. This inflammation, triggers an immune response that leads to the release of inflammatory molecules, damaging the gut lining and compromising its integrity. This, in turn, allows harmful substances to enter the bloodstream, leading to systemic inflammation and a range of gut-related disorders.

The Benefits of Soil-Based Probiotics for Gut Inflammation:

1. Reduce Gut Inflammation:

Soil-based probiotics have demonstrated powerful anti-inflammatory properties. (*)

By regulating the immune response in the gut, these probiotics can help balance the production of pro-inflammatory molecules, such as cytokines. (*)

Studies have shown that soil-based probiotics can decrease the levels of interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) (*) markers associated with Gut Inflammation.

These cytokines are associated with oxidative stress, gut inflammation and more tissue damage. (*) Soil based probiotics also help with restoring the balance of the gut microbiome (*)

2. Restoration of Gut Microbiota Balance:

You see… we know that when the gut microbiome is imbalanced, this imbalance contributes to gut inflammation and because soil-based probiotics can be delivered to the areas of the gut where they are needed the most, they in turn help restore microbial balance by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and inhibiting the growth of harmful ones.

These probiotics, such as Bacillus strains, produce antimicrobial peptides that can selectively target pathogenic disease-causing bacteria while maintaining the diversity of the gut microbiota.

3. Enhancement of Gut Barrier Function:

Soil based probiotics also help enhance the function of the gut barrier. The gut barrier serves as the first line of defense against harmful toxins and pathogens. This gut barrier is home to specialized cells that makes mucin and other cells that make Secretory IgA. Soil-based probiotics have been found to enhance gut barrier function by increasing the production of tight junction proteins,

These tight junctions like the ones you see here are like the gatekeepers. These tight junction proteins maintain the integrity of the gut lining by prevents the entry of harmful substances within the gut. They prevent the gut from becoming “Leaky”

4. Regulation of Immune Responses:

Soil based probiotics also help regulate the immune response. If you Remember what I said at the beginning of this video about chronic inflammation, I said that that an overactive immune response in the gut can trigger chronic inflammation.

Soil-based probiotics have immunomodulatory and immune regulating properties, meaning they can balance the immune system’s response and they do this by stimulate the production of regulatory T cells which help suppress excessive immune activity. (*) Really important for those of you with autoimmune disease.

5. Antioxidant Protection:

With Chronic inflammation comes high levels of oxidative stress and free radical production. Due to Soil-based probiotics antioxidant properties, Soil based probiotics have been shown to help minimize the damaging effects of oxidative stress, free radical damage, and tissue damage (*), (*)

These probiotics can increase the levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase, supporting the gut’s defense against inflammation.

6. Regulation of Mucin Production:

If you have seen some of my other videos, I have talked about the importance of the mucous layer of the gut, but here’s the thing, the gut relies on a protective layer of mucin to prevent the attachment of harmful bacteria to the gut lining. Mucin forms not only a physical barrier but also and immunological barrier. If you are someone who had a functional stool test and you had low levels of SIgA this is the where you find that SIgA- in that mucous (*) Soil-based probiotics have been shown to enhance the production of mucin. (*) And when we increase mucin production, it can reduce the risk of inflammation caused by pathogens.

7. Reduction of Intestinal Permeability:

Increased intestinal permeability, often referred to as “leaky gut,” is a hallmark of gut inflammation. Soil-based probiotics can help normalize intestinal permeability by promoting the production of adequate mucin and tight junction proteins. By improving gut barrier function, these probiotics help prevent the translocation of harmful substances across the gut lining and minimize inflammation.

Benefits of soil based probiotics

Here’s what you need to remember about today’s video.

It should be pretty obvious that soil-based probiotics provide so many benefits when we suffer with chronic inflammation. Their unique properties, including their ability to influence the immune response, restore balance to gut microbiome, improve gut barrier function, increase SIgA levels, reduce leaky gut, and reduce oxidative stress, tissue damage make them a powerful tool in promoting gut health.

When you Incorporate soil-based probiotics into a comprehensive gut health regimen, meaning a healthy diet and lifestyle, this will go a long way at improving not only your digestive health but your mental health and every other facet of health that is tied into the gut-immune inflammation connection.
