Clostridium sporogenes

I'm interested in using Clostridium sporogenes as a probiotic supplement because it produces IPA in vivo. I couldn't find any suppliers so I'm interested in doing this myself. Does anyone know what strain I should use and where I could get ahold of it?



  • What does it do?

    3-Indolepropionic acid is a potent neuroprotective agent and is currently being investigated for treating Alzheimer's disease. It is also very potent antioxidant as well, but it doesn't reactive and pro-oxidant intermediate compounds like melatonin. It might help prevent against type 2 diabetes as well.

  • Clostridium sporogenes is already present in the guts of some of the population, so that sounds reasonable.
    However, a lot of gut biome stuff deals with lifestyle changes. C spor is in the soil which means we all have been exposed. You would want to look into the things that would keep it around, not just adding it.

    also, here is a paper
