Science exploring the bacterium bacillus has been around for a long time, but it’s probiotic effect on humans is relatively new, research wise, compared to other strains such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium. But the emerging studies show its benefits to digestive health, and a possible “prebiotic” effect to boost other probiotics in the digestive tract. In this episode, Christopher Penet, vice president at BIO-CAT; Steve Lamb, Ph.D., technical director at BIO-CAT Microbials; and Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, discuss bacillus, including:
- The human health effects of bacillus
- A closer look at the Bacillus subtilis strain and its possible mechanisms of action on human health.
- How bacillus work with other probiotics, such as lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium
