Spore-based probiotics are becoming more popular, and for good reason. Research has shown promising results using spore-based probiotics to help promote a healthy gut, especially in conditions like SIBO and leaky gut syndrome. Although they are becoming more popular, many people don’t know what the difference is between spore-based probiotics, regular probiotics, and probiotic yeasts. For this week’s episode, “Bloating, Belching, Gassy…the Fix”, we have a special guest that will explain to us the differences between different types of probiotics, and how they may be beneficial in the management of different health conditions.

SBI Spore – Probiotics have been extensively studied and are characterized as having broad GI and immune benefits. Bacillus spores remain dormant in harsh environments until they reach more favorable environments like the human gastrointestinal tract. The combination of specific strains, particularly Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus clausii, and Bacillus subtilis, may help relieve symptoms for common GI complaints and reinforce healthy gut function.
Saccharomyces Boulardii – Saccharomyces boulardii is a nonpathogenic, transient yeast long used to support normal bowel transit time.† It is a hardy, acid-resistant, temperature tolerant microorganism that is not affected by antibacterial agents. S. boulardii is genetically and functionally distinct from brewer’s yeast (S. cerevisiae) and different from pathogenic Candida species.
SBI Support – SBI Support is a purified, dairy-free source of immunoglobulin G (IgG). Pure IgG helps to maintain a healthy intestinal immune system by binding a broad range of microbes and toxins within the gut lumen.

As leaky gut, food allergies, and gastrointestinal disorders become more common, it is more important than ever to be mindful of your gut health. Having a healthy gut is more difficult than it used to be due to the large number of environmental toxins, food additives, and stress we face every day. Much of your overall health is dependent on the health of your gut, and having good digestion is a key part of a healthy gut. Good digestion is crucial for nutrient absorption, bowel regularity, immune system function, and much more. In this week’s episode we discuss some common digestive issues, their causes, and what you can do to help improve your digestion.
Possible Signs of Poor Digestion:
- Feeling Tired After Eating
- Nutritional Deficiencies

Probio Ease – This shelf-stable, 50 billion CFU formulation contains a blend of 7 select probiotic species with Sunfiber®, a low-FODMAP certified prebiotic. This formulation provides comprehensive microbiome, immune, and healthy inflammation support in one convenient capsule.†
Betaine & Pepsin – Betaine & Pepsin provides hydrochloric acid to help maintain gastric pH and supports overall nutrient absorption. Symptoms of indigestion are often mistaken for excessive gastric acid. This leads many to take acid blockers in attempt to lower stomach acid, when the true culprit is likely to be insufficient levels of HCl.

Heartburn and indigestion are common problems that can make eating difficult. There are several things that could potentially cause these problems, and the solution may depend on the cause. Poor gut health is believed to be one of the root causes of many common health issues, and repairing the gut may be key to heartburn and indigestion relief. In today's episode - Heartburn, Indigestion and Misery On Me - we'll discuss some common causes, and what you can do about it.
Common Causes of Heartburn:
- Laying Down After Eating
- Low Stomach Acid
- Overuse of Ibuprofen
- Hiatal Hernia
Heartburn and indigestion can be difficult to get over, and each person is different. If you have low stomach acid, then supplementing with betaine may help. Quitting smoking and maintaining a healthy weight may also help, as well as provide other health benefits. Avoiding large meals, especially at night, and not laying down after eating may also help reduce heartburn and indigestion. A healthy gut is necessary for overall good health, so do your best to keep your gut happy and healthy.

N-acetyl glucosamine and zinc may help boost GI integrity.
Acetyl L-Carnitine - The acetyl group can serve as a metabolic source of acetylcholine, a brain neurotransmitter, while the L-carnitine component carries fatty acids into mitochondria of nerve, heart, and muscle cells for use in energy production.† Other actions benefit membrane stability, production of nerve growth factor, and cerebral blood flow.†
