The Enterogermina is formed probiotic spores of Bacillus clausii . A probiotic is a group of living microorganisms that give a benefit to the health of the host, when they are administered in adequate quantities. They can be added to the formula of many types of products , such as foods, drugs, and dietary supplements.The general mechanism of action of probiotics is that they affect the intestinal ecosystem, promoting the immune mechanisms of the mucosa and stimulating non-immune mechanisms through antagonism and competition with potential pathogens. These phenomena mediate most of the benefits of probiotics.

What is Enterogermina for?

The Enterogermina is a probiotic used to restore the balance of intestinal flora that has been affected by intestinal infections, diarrhea, poisoning, eating disorders, antibiotics and chemotherapy. Has certain interactions with the host. These are classified into the following types:

  • Immune benefits
  • Non-immune benefits
  • Helicobacter pylori eradication

Immune benefits

Enterogermina, when it has been administered and is active in the digestive system, has benefits for the immune system, that is, they focus on defending ourselves against diseases . Among them are:

  • It activates local macrophages to increase antigen presentation to B lymphocytes and increase secretory immunoglobulin A production.
  • Modulates the profiles of cytokines.
  • Induce hyporesponsiveness (poor response) to food antigens.

Non-immune benefits

Enterogermina, with its consumption and activation in the body, provides non-immunological benefits, that is, they do not have to do directly with defense against diseases. Among them we can mention:

  • Digesting food and competing with pathogens for nutrients.
  • Altering the local pH to create an unfavorable environment for pathogens.
  • Produce bacteriocins to inhibit pathogens.
  • Phagocytose superoxide radicals.
  • Stimulate mucin production at the epithelial level.
  • Increase the function of the intestinal barrier.
  • Competing for adherence with pathogens.
  • Modify toxins derived from pathogens (disease-producing agents).

Helicobacter pylori eradication

Enterogermina, which is a probiotic formed by Bacillus clausii microorganisms , is used as adjunctive therapy for the eradication of Helicobacter pylori . Together with strains of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, it can reduce the side effects of antibiotic therapies and improve patient adherence.

Several strains were shown to be effective in reducing side effects, but had no effect on the rate of eradication of Helicobacter pylori bacteria . Recent studies suggest that supplementing antibiotics with some probiotics , such as enterogermina , may be effective in increasing eradication rates.

For this purpose, the recommended dose of enterogermina is the equivalent of 2 * 10 9 spores of Bacillus clausii , three times a day.

Side effects of enterogermina

The probiotic enterogermina is capable of causing adverse effects if it is not administered according to the doctor’s instructions. These possible consequences are:

  • Convulsion
  • Pain if given as an injection
  • Infection
  • Abscess
  • Fever
  • Sickness
  • Headache
  • Tremors
