Spore form probiotics describe bacteria that live in the spore state so they can survive harsh environments.
The gastrointestinal tract is pretty harsh, so spore form probiotics can survive digestive juices. They’re very robust.
When the spore form spends six minutes in the upper part of the small intestine, it changes state and sets to work with its probiotic qualities. Spores recondition the bowels.

Listen as Dr. Tom Payne joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss how you can improve your gut microbiome.
