Perfect Pass Probiotic is an all-Bacillus species supplement. It is manufactured for and distributed by Good Gut Solutions of San Diego, CA, formerly known as Crohns.net. It is marketed as "The Perfect Answer for Optimal Digestive Health."
This supplement is one of a few supplements marketed by Perfect Pass Vitamins and is affiliated with Dr. Pamela Nathan, who among other credentials is an acupuncturist, doctor of homeopathic medicine, board-certified Oriental Medicine practitioner and founder of www.Crohns.net. She is the founder of the Ecology Health Center in San Diego, CA.
This probiotic supplement contains 3 billion total cells per capsule of human-sourced strains of:
The other ingredient at the time of this writing is cellulose. Please verify ingredients of any supplement prior to taking it.
This supplement should be taken with food for best germination. The manufacturer’s dosage of this supplement is one capsule per day for adults and children over age 10. Children under 10 take one-half capsule per day which may be opened and added to food or drink. They also say that for “advanced use”, customers with chronic conditions may require 2 capsules per day.
The pros of this probiotic supplement as I see them are:
This particular combination of Bacillus species at this dosage is only found on the Perfect Pass Vitamins website. There are, however, other supplements with Bacillus subtilis HU58, Bacillus clausii and Bacillus coagulans bacteria such as MegaSpore Biotic (page on this supplement coming soon).
Bacillus subtilis HU58 is a fairly researched strain, but the other two strains are wild cards as to what effects they will have. While Bacillus species do contribute to the health of the gut, I do not believe that these three strains alone are the perfect answer for optimal digestive health by themselves. I recommend that you read the other website pages about Bacillus bacteria to guide you in your decision.
If you need any help in choosing probiotics for your situation, please consider nutritional consultations with me.
Thanks to Donna for suggesting a review of this supplement!
Since this product only contains Bacillus species, if you decide to take this supplement, I would combine the health benefits of it with the benefits provided by lactic acid bacteria such as Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and safe Streptococcus species. Many of those are found in:
