Healthy INSIDER Podcast 44: Bacillus Probiotic for Digestive Health

Science exploring the bacterium bacillus has been around for a long time, but its 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.
