When we are prescribed antibiotics by our doctor, we often don’t consider what the antibiotic medication is actually doing to the bacteria in our gut. Referring to the Greek language “Anti” means “Against” and “Biotic” means “Life”, so literally “Antibiotic” means “Against Life”. So, when we take an antibiotic medication, it is indiscriminately killing off both the good and the bad bacteria in our gut.
Unlike most probiotics, the Bacillus spore strains used in Cura Sporebiotics are stable in the presence of antibiotics. They can help to keep harmful organisms from taking over while we are undergoing antibiotic treatment and also support the re-growth of our natural, good bacteria. Many probiotics currently on the market are destroyed in the presence of antibiotic medication.
Wind and Bloating
Wind and bloating are common digestive health complaints. The Bacillus spore strains in Cura Sporebiotics have been shown to dramatically decrease ammonia gas and hydrogen gas production in the gut – which lead to the bloating feeling and creation of wind after eating (or for some people during eating).
Leaky gut syndrome (also known as “leaky gut”) is a digestive condition that affects the lining of the intestines. It is called leaky gut, because there literally are “gaps” in the intestinal walls that allow bacteria and other toxins to pass (leak) into the bloodstream.
Inflammation is one of the main causes of leaky gut, so if you can reduce gut inflammation, you can significantly help to reduce leaky gut. The Bacillus spores used in Cura Sporebiotics have been proven to reduce gut inflammation, by helping to close the “gaps” in the gut lining.
We will share more information about the human clinical trial that demonstrates that the Bacillus spores used in Cura Sporebiotics can reduce endotoxemia / leaky gut problems in other educational articles.
SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)
SIBO can be a serious condition affecting the small intestine. It occurs when bacteria that normally grow in other parts of the gut start growing in the small intestine. That causes pain and diarrhea. It can also lead to malnutrition as the bacteria start to use up the body’s nutrients.
Clinical trials have shown that one of the spores used in the Cura Sporebiotic formula, Bacillus clausii, can decrease bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.
The strains in Cura Sporebiotic are able to help clean up the small intestine and then naturally pass down to the large intestine (colon) once their function in the small intestine is complete.
For people with a histamine intolerance taking a more traditional probiotic supplement that contains any Lactobacillus strains can potentially cause problems because these strains of probiotics produce histamines. Cura Sporebiotics does not produce histamines and is therefore suitable for those with any histamine intolerances.

Oral spore-based probiotic supplementation was associated with reduced incidence of post-prandial dietary endotoxin, triglycerides, and disease risk biomarkers.
