Bacillus Coagulans Health Benefits: Improving Gut Health

What Is Bacillus Coagulans?

When you head out looking for where to buy functional foods, it’s likely you’re looking for more than just foods with calcium or vitamin C. While those nutrients remain important to a daily diet, probiotic foods are also on the list of foods that belong in a healthy diet.

Bacillus Coagulans is a probiotic strain deemed safe for supplements, functional, and high in nutritional value. What are probiotics? Essentially, probiotics are live microorganisms that can support healthy gut bacteria.1

For one thing, probiotics like B. coagulans can support the production of organic lactic acid, acetic acids, and hydrogen peroxide. Based on recent reviews, B. coagulans is able to withstand heat and can grow in environments with pH levels of 5.5 to 6.5.2

And according to the US Food and Drug Administration and the European Union Food Safety Authority, B. coagulans is safe for consumption.3 But as always, you’ll need to get your doctors approval before making any changes to your diet.

History Of Bacillus Coagulans

In 1915, there was an outbreak of coagulation in an evaporated milk product packed by an Iowa condenser. This was the first time B. coagulans was isolated and studied. Observers recorded that though the milk was curdled and a little bitter, the cheese-like nature of it wasn’t entirely “unpleasant.”4

Then, in the late 1970s, a patent was issued to help improve the shelf life and strange flavor of fermented soybeans (also known as natto) by adding B. coagulans and its probiotic relative Bacillus subtilis. Today, the formula is still used to manufacture commonly consumed fermented soybean products.5

It’s no surprise why bacillus coagulans (otherwise known as B. coagulans) has captured the scientific attention of research teams and food manufacturers alike. For one thing, B. coagulans demonstrates various biological activities similar to its sibling probiotics, like Bacillus and Lactobacillus. One of the qualities that makes B. coagulans such a unique spore-forming bacterium is its resistance to high temperature.6

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the US Library of Medicine, B. coagulans exhibits the characteristics of the probiotic microorganisms that naturally inhabit the intestinal microbiota. Such characteristics include helping to:

  • Support healthy Immune function
  • Support heart health7,8

Further reports from the NIH show that consistent consumption of probiotic-containing supplements may support:

  • Immune health
  • Healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range
  • Digestive health9
