Probiotics are live microorganisms present in foods and available as powders, capsules, tablets, and liquid suspensions. Good probiotics are the ones that can reach the site of action without being compromised by the acidic condition of the stomach and the presence of maybe an antibiotic.
One such probiotic is Bacillus clausii, used in managing acute diarrhea in children and adults. It is a rod-shaped, aerobic, gram-positive bacterium that is non-pathogenic and spore-forming. It has a unique ability to survive the stomach’s acidic environment, adhere and colonize in the small intestine in the presence of an antibiotic.
Supplementation of Bacillus clausii helps to manage the following conditions.
Dysbiosis: Supplementation of Bacillus clausii corrects the imbalance of the gut microflora during treatment with antibiotics and. other medications.
Diarrhea and irregular bowel movements: In adults and children, supplementation with bacillus clausii can reduce the severity and duration of diarrhea.
Helicobacter pylori infection: An alternative supportive therapy for Helicobacter pylori infection is the supplementation of the probiotic strain Bacillus clausii.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A clinical trial recorded a 50% decrease in the severity score of the symptom severity scale after two weeks of supplementation with Bacillus clausii supplementation in individuals with non-constipated IBS with dietary modification.
Respiratory infection: Studies in children have documented the use of Bacillus clausii in treating managing Respiratory infections and suggest that B.clausii can reduce the recurrence of Respiratory infections even in children with allergies.
