On Episode #23 of BetterHealthGuy Blogcasts, I had the opportunity to interview Kiran Krishnan, creator of MegaSporeBiotic and Just Thrive Probiotic.  I highly recommend you listen to our talk so that you understand how these options may be helpful for you.  

According to the MegaSporeBiotic manufacturer's web site, a culmination of published research shows that spores, like those found in MegaSporeBiotic, when used as probiotics could confer the following beneficial effects:

  • Immune modulation to reduce allergies and asthma
  • Immune stimulation of peripheral T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes to fight colds, flus and infections
  • Decrease in frequency of urinary tract infections
  • Reduction in side effects related to antibiotic therapy
  • Effective treatment for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Diminished duration of diarrhea in children 3 to 36 months of age
  • Reduced incidence of irritable bowel syndrome diarrhea
  • Immune response to Adenovirus and influenza-A in-vitro
  • Improvement in pain scale in Rheumatoid arthritis patients
  • Reduces the inflammation associated with Crohn’s disease, IBS, ulcerative colitis
  • Improved growth of the natural flora
  • Improved digestion of food and a thus improved nutrient absorption.
  • Production and absorption of critical nutrients – i.e. carotenoids, quinols, vitamins and enzymes
  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Reduction of cholesterol
  • Detoxification of the intestinal tract
  • Effective colonization

I am personally using this product and did notice some GI symptoms when starting which I interpreted as a good sign.  I plan to continue it to see what benefits I may observe over time.
