Bacillus clausii has 3 Resistance Modes
When it comes to gut health, there are few greater allies you can have than that of Bacillus clausii. Once these abundant bacteria colonise the intestine, an existing imbalance is far less likely to affect your daily life by means of symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhoea, constipation, and more.
Antibiotics are designed to either kill or inhibit the growth of most forms of bacteria. Bacillus clausii bacteria is resistant to this process, and can be used together with antibiotics, as it is less likely to be reduced in number. 2
Many forms of bacteria die when they encounter the acidic contents of the stomach. Bacillus clausii is resistant to this environment, passing through alive in order to colonise the intestine. 1, 3
When exposed to high and low temperatures, Bacillus clausii spores survive and retain their potency. Products containing Bacillus clausii are convenient to carry and travel with, as they do not require refrigeration. 1, 3

Lifestyle choices, stress, poor diet and antibiotic treatment are all factors that can lead to a lack of intestinal flora. Bacillus clausii spores are a probiotic, restoring the microbiota so that our gut can heal. 1, 3
Digestive disorders stemming from intestinal imbalance tend to manifest differently in adults and children. Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?1,3
Gut Disorders in Adults
An unbalanced gut can result in watery bowel movements. Triggers commonly include viral and bacterial infection, some foods and medications. 4
Antibiotics affect the gut by inadvertently affecting even the good bacteria. Side effects include abdominal pain and diarrhoea/ constipation. 5
A most common gut disorder, bellyache can be triggered by an imbalance in the levels of the intestinal flora.7 Indigestion and food sensitivity can to be expected. 6
A condition which is caused by maladaptation within the intestinal microbiota. Dysbiosis may cause anything from foul breath to rectal itching. 7
Oestrogen and progesterone affect normal gut function while the body is creating life, causing nausea, constipation, gas retention and discomfort. This may lead to an imbalance in the intestinal flora. Consult a healthcare practitioner before using any probiotic. 8
Gut Disorders in Children
Leaky gut is common in kids when the intestinal flora is unbalanced, making them vulnerable to infectious diseases such as diarrhoea.9
Antibiotics can improve overall health but may eradicate good bacteria in the process, leading to cramping, nausea, and watery stool. Children are more sensitive to this than adults are. 10
Children often suffer from bellyache. There are many triggers for this condition. Learn how to identify these and how to manage them.
