In this interview Dr. Pande will discuss some of the issues with probiotics in general. If you are an informed consumer then you know that there are many products that are low quality and low effectiveness that exist in the marketplace. We have discussed these issues in previous podcasts. The solution is to understand the distinctions and seek out high quality products with clinical science to validate their claims. In this case we are discussing the clinical evidence for IBS and Lactospore. Lactospore is also a unique probiotic in the manner in which it protects itself and that it is heat stable. It can even be used in baked goods and still remain viable. That's a first for me. Heat is usually destructive to probiotics. So this is an interesting exploration of a novel probiotic. Dr. Pande explains this very well.
