Sensitive Gut Fiber for contsipation issues - gut health, fiber, motility, laxative free

As a company, we spend a lot of time helping with constipation issues. A lot of time. We prefer a laxative-free approach. We don't sell laxatives. If a person does not have gastroparesis/slow gastric emptying, increasing beneficial fiber shown to help with constipation issues may be key to the process. (Note: Anyone with slow gastric emptying needs to avoid fiber until they have improved gastric emptying.) Many of our customers have SIBO-C, IBS-C, SIBO-M, or IBS-M. In these instances, they need a tolerable fiber to help them. Sensitive Gut Fiber is the answer to that. Yes, Sensitive Gut Fiber also...

Digestive Enyzmes help with building muscle- gut health, protein, digestive enzymes

Digestive Enyzmes help with building muscle- gut health, protein, digestive enzymes

Believe it or not, loading up on more protein may not be as effective as taking the right enzymes with the protein you are eating so that you absorb more of it. In the past, I have posted on keys to protein absorption. Gastric juices (produced by a healthy stomach barrier) are key to protein digestion. Many people have too little and not too much stomach acid or gastric juices. With this comes a deficiency in enzymes to break down protein. Due to the translocation of pathogens from the digestive system to the pancreas (via leaky gut or increased intestinal...

Do you know what causes too much stomach acid? Very few things. (1) ZES (Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome)(2) Gastric Outlet Obstruction(3) Chronic Kidney FailureIf you don't have these issues, you are not helping reflux and heartburn issues by blocking, inhibiting, or restricting acid. Acid blockers work fast and are a great "band-aid" approach to reflux and heartburn, but you are not helping anything. To help with reflux and heartburn issues you need to do 3 things:(1) Strengthen the stomach barrier. This will both protect against acid and help secrete acid. This process also helps restore healthy inflammatory responses. (2) Improve gastric emptying....

Why an effective kids probiotic? - gut health, probiotics, kids health

Building a child's gut is key to their overall health. Like many of you, we have children. We wanted our children to have the best gut health possible. So, we had a renowned microbiologist formulate our Kids Probiotic. When he was formulating the Kids Probiotic we asked him to formulate what he had his children taking every day.Kids Probiotic is a bit different than traditional probiotics you might see elsewhere. Instead of loading a child up with a few strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, we wanted a probiotic to help drive out pathogens AND increase a lot of beneficial bacteria...

Kids probiotics - gut health, probiotics

There is a small disconnect in the world of probiotics. Pediatricians recommend children get probiotics from their food vs. supplements. This advice would be brilliant if probiotic strains found in most food didn't die from the high acidity of the stomach. "Such high acidity due to secreted gastric acid kills probiotic strains as well as gastric commensal microbes. Therefore, the application of probiotics to the stomach or proximal small intestine has historically been considered impractical.""Microbiota in the stomach and application of probiotics to gastroduodenal diseases" National Library of Medicine Do you know what strains do survive the harsh acid, temperature,...

Akkermansia is incredibly popular. It is the new "Shining Star of the Gut Flora." ("Health an Disease: Akkermansia muciniphila, the Shining Star of the Gut Flora" PubMed Central®) But why?

3 common misunderstandings with supplements - gut health, dose, quality

After working with thousands of people, here are the 3 most common misunderstandings we see with supplements:⏲️ TIME: Most research studies done on supplements say they need 8 to 12 weeks to work, NOT 30 DAYS. Most people will quit taking a supplement in the first 30 days if they don't notice it working. I had to train myself to give products the time needed to work per the research studies and trust the process. It just takes time.🔍️STANDARDIZATION: We are all trained to look for specific ingredient names on labels. While that is a good place to start, ingredients...

News Flash. ⚡️If you have gut issues like constipation and diarrhea, bloating and gas, autoimmune issues, allergies, etc. you have some degree of leaky gut (or increased intestinal permeability). It may not be bad, but you likely have it. I find it interesting that for something that doesn't exist (per the medical community), there is ample research on it and what it does. We feel very strongly that to help with a leaky gut you have to do more than just strengthen the gut barrier. You need to clear out the pathogens that are tearing it down. Your approach for...

Where did your asthma come from? (check slide 2)What causes it to go crazy? (anything that hurts the gut)What do you do about it? I think it is very safe to say that poor gut health (whether you know it or not and whether you feel like you have poor gut health or not) affects the immune system, which in turn causes asthma and allergy issues. Stress, poor diet, irritants, allergies, infections, viruses (cold/flu/CO*ID), and gut issues can all cause asthma problems.

If you are doing intense and rigorous exercise regularly you may very well need a very good gut health protocol to pair it with, That's just the science. Here is another thought:Heavy exercise requires good nutrient absorption for rebuilding muscle. Poor gut health (weak/damaged mucosal barrier in the small intestine) causes poor nutrient absorption.

Meaning, for a man this may help with ED, and for both men and women saffron may help with achieving orgasm.

If you frequently have these issues, you may have some form of depression.

Depression also comes with random bouts of being mean suddenly, lashing out at stupid things, sudden flashes of anger, etc. The most common one many may not recognize is that "crossed-lined" situation where you have had enough and then suddenly something else happens (usually something stupid), but you just lose your crap because of it.

How is your diet and exercise program going? Did you know that elevated cortisol can lead to weight gain? Many people with obesity issues have elevated cortisol levels. Did you know a key to long-term weight management is helping with cortisol (stress)? 👍🏼When stress increases, cortisol secretion increases.

The strains need to be resistant to temperature fluctuations, stomach acid, bile salts, and other conditions in the digestive process. 2) The strains need to have a positive modification to the microbiome. The strains better drive out pathogens and help beneficial bacteria thrive. Further, the probiotic strains better increase bacteria diversity and abundance of bacteria that produce...
