Colorspore Bacillus Indicus HU36 (Bacillus HU36™) – The first carotenoid rich probiotic strain offered to the dietary supplement market. An isolate from humans, Indicus HU36 produces high levels of powerful carotenoids (antioxidants) at the site of absorption. Carotenoids do not survive the gastric system well. HU36 however, has demonstrated the ability to survive past the stomach acid and produce the carotenoids at their site of absorption in the gut. The Bacillus HU36™ spores can survive the harsh conditions associated with food processing as well and may be incorporated into a range of food matrices without the need for refrigeration. This probiotic is also uniquely stable in liquids at room temperature and will remain dormant in non-refrigerated beverages. This makes the carotenoids produced by HU 36 the most bioavailable supplementary carotenoids in the marketplace.
HU58™ is a bacterial spore (of the Bacillus subtilis strain) isolated from the human intestinal tract of healthy volunteers. The product has been well studied and is manufactured under license from Royal Holloway College of the University of London (RHUL). Indications for use include gut health, antibiotic-induced diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, bacterial vaginosis, urinary tract infection (UTI), and candida vaginal infections. Moreover, it can provide a nutritional boost when added to foods (biscuits, breads, dairy products etc.), supplements (tablets, capsules), and beverages for various health applications.
HU58™ Bacillus subtilis has been shown in studies to have superior sporulation and germination efficiency. It is stable at extreme pH levels and high temperatures, and can survive dessication, antibiotics, as well as challenging storage/manufacturing conditions, and the gastric environment in the stomach. Bacillus Subtilis HU58 – Bacillus Subtilis has been extensively studied on a genetic and functional level.
There are several probiotics in the pharmaceutical and agricultural markets that utilize this powerful probiotic. One very interesting function of Bacillus Subtilis is its ability to produce nearly 12 strong antibiotics that are potent fighters of opportunistic and harmful bacteria. In addition, HU58 produces a very healthy compound called Nattokinase. Nattokinase is secreted from vegetative cells of Bacillus subtilis and has been shown to reduce blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and reduce excessive clotting by fibrinolysis. Along with Nattokinase, Bacillus subtilis also produces a number of other nutrients that have systemic health benefits such as B vitamins and Vitamin K2. In addition, HU58 is an extremely potent immune stimulator. It has the function of germinating in the small intestines to some degree and this offers the effect of broad-spectrum immune stimulation.
