Research: MegaSporeBiotic & MegaPre Enhance S...

A recent study published in The International Journal of Pharmaceutics: X shows that taking MegaPreTM together with MegaSporeBioticTM both increases microbial diversity in the gut and increases total SCFA (short chain fatty acid) production by 80-140%. When testing MegaSporeBiotic alone (without MegaPre), there was a still significant (though less impressive) 24-70% increase in total SCFAs among donors. For this reason, it...

MegaSporeBiotic Lowers High Triglyceride Levels, S...

Study Highlights Efficacy of MegaSporeBiotic in Reducing Serum Triglyceride Levels Bacillus spore-based probiotics are gaining popularity due to their safety, survivability, and capacity to modulate the gut microbiome. Research continues to highlight the role of MegaSporeBiotic in supporting human health outcomes. Approximately 1/3 of the population has elevated triglyceride levels (>150 mg/dL) in the bloodstream, or...

Microbiome is the New Health Insurance

All disease begins in the gut (paraphrasing Hippocrates)… …and a healthy microbiome is the new health insurance. Slide from my recent presentation on the microbiome and its role in the pathogenesis of diabetes. We can all be healthy, wealthy and wise by supporting a diverse microbiome with key strains that build and maintain the gut barrier. Eat more plant foods! Fruits and vegetables, beans and lentils, roots...

Diabetes + the Microbiota

Did you know that researchers believe that an imbalance of the gut microbiome is the underlying root cause for the onset of diabetes? Here’s a simplified explanation of how diabetes can develop: Chronic inflammation in the gut from microbial dysbiosis and lack of microbial diversity leads to damage to the gut mucosal barrier. Eventually this inflammation leads to gaps in the intestinal lining, known as leaky gut....
