Re: SBO ( soil based organisms)


It is interesting that you mentioned soil based organisms in your posts - I used to take Garden of Life SBO for quite a long time. Recently I found the article of Natasha Trenev ( she is a founder of Natren) about SBO and decided to stop taking them.
Natasha Trenev is a "world renowned expert on microorganisms and maintains one of the largest research libraries on that topic in the world." Trenev outlines why it is not safe to consume bacterial soil organisms ." She states, "To summarize the research briefly, soil organisms (SO) are spore formers, so they make make good competitors for yeast, fungus and other pathogens. This is why so many people taking soil organisms will initially experience very favorable results. However these spores are are extremely difficult to kill, surviving sterilants, disinfectants, acceleration forces, heat, pressure, radiation and many antibiotics. Strong antibiotics -- like Vancomycin -- can suppress certain spores. Spores are so persistent in the intestines that another round of germination may occur after the the drug is stopped. Soil organisms can also adapt loose genetic material and incorporate it into their cellular structure - the ramifications of which are yet unknown. Various soil organisms can also produce harmful peptides, affecting hemoglobin in the blood. It's important to keep in mind that virtually all antibiotic drugs were were initially developed from soil organisms and as antibiotics become more potent, they cause more damage to the host, not just in the immediate gut environment, but systematically as well. There are simply too many questions and unknowns to sanction the use of soil organisms for human consumption and one can certainly cannot qualify them as safe at this time."
