How digestive enzymes can help while cleaning up the gut-digestive enzymes, gluten, dairy, FODMAP

How digestive enzymes can help while cleaning up the gut-digestive enzymes, gluten, dairy, FODMAP

Just because it takes time to improve the gut doesn’t mean a person needs to miss all the fun with⁠ family and friends (which usually involves food). ⁠.⁠While we are helping people overcome larger⁠ underlying stomach issues, we don’t want them to be miserable. Avoiding foods that cause issues most of the time can be necessary, but there are times when it is really tough to avoid participating in the food part of an event (especially during holidays or vacations). We get it.⁠.⁠Here’s how to enjoy meals while also cleaning up the gut:⁠The simple fast answer is the Food Freedom Kit.⁠These four...

Why vitamins K2 and D3?

Why vitamins K2 and D3?

Without Vitamin K2, calcium can get deposited in the arteries, which can cause arterial calcification and⁠ stifle blood flow. Obvioulsy, that’s not good. ⁠.⁠Taking calcium or Vitamin D3 without Vitamin K2 is an incomplete story. And Vitamins K2 and D3 are meant to be together. ⁠.⁠Research shows that these micronutrients are stronger together than on their own. Together they harness the power of their synergistic relationship to support bone mineral density, muscle contraction, and cardiovascular health. Plus, this combination can support mitochondrial function, which can reboot your energy levels and metabolism.⁠.⁠For a complete bone health story add Vitamins K2 and D3...

Ultimate Probiotic not only corrects poor gut health but rapidly improves it-

Ultimate Probiotic not only corrects poor gut health but rapidly improves it-

“How does the Ultimate Probiotic work?” It's a great question. I've tried to simplify it in this post. ⁠⁠.⁠⁠Now let’s ask the critical question of “How long does this whole process take to work?” That answer is⁠⁠different for everyone. It doesn’t magically happen overnight. It would be fantastic if it did, but most things worthwhile and long-lasting take time and commitment.⁠⁠.⁠⁠Building up the gut is similar to building up the body’s endurance for a marathon or bike race. It comes over⁠⁠time and the starting point for every person depends on their starting gut fitness level.*⁠⁠.⁠⁠Ultimate Probiotic doesn't work the same...

Overuse of laxatives can make constipation worse-Upper GI Relief, digestion

Overuse of laxatives can make constipation worse-Upper GI Relief, digestion

Let’s imagine that a person is eating the right foods, drinking enough water, and is getting enough⁠exercise but is still constipated. They may take something like MiraLAX, right? And then they take it⁠again and again, but the constipation continues. What then? OR what if a person doesn’t want to take⁠laxatives? What do they do? Exercise more, drink water, and then what?⁠.⁠Frequent and chronic constipation is due to slow or reduced motility. This means that the movement of⁠waste through the digestive system is slow. Some factors that can cause this:⁠✔️Overuse of laxatives⁠✔️Restricted eating patterns⁠✔️Various serious stomach issues⁠✔️High-protein low-carb diets ⁠.⁠Here’s what...

The psychology of fat loss & a healthy body

The psychology of fat loss & a healthy body

Changing one’s physique is as much about the head game as it is about exercise, diet, and changing gut health. One has to first believe that the goal is attainable. Improving mindset is as much a first place to start as anything else. ⁠.⁠Here’s what happens:⁠A person starts off excited and energetic. Some very restrictive diets can cause excitement and energy⁠to drop weight extremely fast, but the program is too restrictive and not sustainable. This can cause⁠immediate questions of whether the program is going to work long-term. Doubt sets in. The program⁠falls apart. What is the lesson here? Pick the...

Start with a gut clean up for problems like IBS, SIBO, IBD, Stomach problems-prebiotic, probiotic, digestive enzymes

Start with a gut clean up for problems like IBS, SIBO, IBD, Stomach problems-prebiotic, probiotic, digestive enzymes

What should a gut clean up do?⁠✔️ Remove actual toxins (real toxins like E. coli, LPS, C. diff, H. pylori, LTA, etc.)⁠✔️ Reduce immune overreaction⁠✔️ Strengthen the immune system⁠✔️ Strengthen the gut barrier⁠✔️ Allow more space for friendly bacteria to grow⁠✔️ Improve motility (digestion speed, gastric emptying, peristalsis, etc.)⁠✔️ Promote better stomach acid⁠✔️Help with food digestion⁠.⁠This is the place to start for people with serious issues and before taking probiotics and prebiotics.⁠What does all this?⁠▪️ Antibody/immunoglobulin concentrate (IgG, IgM, IgA)⁠▪️ Artichoke leaf extract, Gutgard® licorice flavonoids, and ginger root extract with a high level of gingerols⁠▪️ Broad-spectrum digestive enzymes⁠▪️ All...

A healthy gut environment-immune system, digestion, probiotics, gut health, short-chain fatty acids

A healthy gut environment is essential for human health!⁠⁠Without it, we put ourselves at risk for disease.⁠⁠Our gut is almost as important as our brain. In fact, we call it our second brain!⁠⁠In order to have a healthy gut environment, we need to:⁠✅ Have a healthy diet⁠✅ Minimize prescription drugs.

Addressing SIBO at the root cause can make a drastic difference-stomach acid, slow digestion, probiotics, immunoglobulins, gut health

Addressing SIBO at the root cause can make a drastic difference-stomach acid, slow digestion, probiotics, immunoglobulins, gut health

SIBO is a situation we get asked about daily. These steps are the way to knock out SIBO for good. Most people only address the bacteria overgrowth and miss what’s causing the bacteria overgrowth in the first place (low stomach acid and slow motility/dysmotility).⁠.⁠When circumstances (bacteria imbalances, medications,⁠stress, diet, etc.) “…slows the passage of food and waste products in the digestive tract, creating a breeding ground for bacteria." ⁠.⁠A person can attack bacteria all day long but until they address motility and stomach acid the problem will continue to come back over and over again.⁠.⁠Steps 1 and 2 require high...

Even the best supplements can't offset an unhealthy lifestyle-probiotics, intermittent fasting, prebiotics, gut health

Even the best supplements alone will NOT offset a bad lifestyle: too much sugar, too little sleep, too⁠ much takeout, too much stress, turning to meds for solving everything, etc.⁠.⁠But life is all about balance too. Infections happen (and require antibiotics). Stress is on the rise (in most⁠ people). Holidays, vacations, and celebrations are going to take place (typically involving unhealthy food and drinks). ⁠.⁠The goal isn’t to avoid life or not live. The goal is to have the good in abundance and the bad occasionally, so the gut and body are healthy.⁠1️⃣ The right supplements matter. People say “I get...

4 Steps to Gut Health-probiotics, nutrients, prebiotics, inflammation, digestive enzymes, stomach acid

4 Steps to Gut Health-probiotics, nutrients, prebiotics, inflammation, digestive enzymes, stomach acid

Much like a healthy garden, a healthy gut should include an abundant variety of keystone (beneficial) bacteria and short chain fatty acids. There are strong physical barriers that protect the gut and any pathogens (harmful bacteria and toxins) that do sneak in get removed daily.✅While the gut can be affected by many causes, proper nutrient intake, probiotics, and prebiotics are essential for a thriving gut.👏🏻Probiotics seed the gut with healthy bacteria while prebiotics feed our gut bacteria to encourage the selective growth of microbes.💊 While food sources are a great source for probiotics, they can be limiting and not providing...

Transform the gut to transform the body-weight loss, gut health, prebiotic, probiotic, cravings, metabolism

Literally speaking, a vast majority of people that engage a diet/exercise program and lose weight will regain the weight back within 5 years with usually several additional pounds as well. Bottom line, the probability of success with most exercise and diet programs is extremely low. ⁠.⁠When the only thing that stands between eating a favorite treat each day is willpower, weight loss is inevitably going to stop. A person has to change what one desires and be happily satisfied with smaller amounts of food to actually be successful with body composition change long-term.⁠⁠The secret is found in changing gut health,...

Candida yeast overgrowth can be helped with natural supplements from Silver Fern Brand-gut health, probiotics, cleanse, upper GI relief

Candida yeast overgrowth anyone? ⁠.⁠Candida yeast overgrowth has similar contributing factors to bacteria overgrowth: slow motility (dysmotility), low stomach acid, bacteria overgrowth, bacteria imbalances, and a weak immune system. ⁠.⁠There are three products we recommend for candida yeast overgrowth:⁠▪️UPPER GI RELIEF specifically addresses motility and stomach acid issues. ⁠▪️CLEANSE is the ideal way to address diarrhea. It also drives out imbalances and supports the immune system. Immunoglobulins/antibodies are the ideal way to support the immune system.⁠▪️ULTIMATE PROBIOTIC contains strains that help with motility, promote bacteria balance and abundance, and help build the immune system.⁠⁠Here's the breakdown on how to use...

True probiotics and immunoglobulins actually detox the body-gut health, detoxification

True probiotics and immunoglobulins actually detox the body-gut health, detoxification

“Detoxing doesn’t exist!”⁠⁠Sure, it does. Real detoxing is when real toxins have been clinically shown to be removed from the⁠ digestive tract and body by a certain product or ingredient. True probiotics meet that requirement.⁠⁠Others think that the body doesn’t need any help: “The body naturally detoxifies itself! I eat a lot of organic fruits and vegetables, so I am totally fine.” The truth is healthy eaters get sick all the time. Healthy eaters get SIBO, IBS, and other digestive problems. The gut does need support.⁠⁠⁠Serum-derived bovine immunoglobulin/protein isolate (SBI) contains three times more IgG and total⁠⁠ immunoglobulin compounds (IgA, IgM) than...

Traditional diets INCREASE cravings & appetite - gut health, weight loss, gut bacteria

Traditional diets INCREASE cravings & appetite - gut health, weight loss, gut bacteria

Traditional diet programs increase cravings and increase appetite. The fact is that dieting increases out-of-control food cravings. When a person ignores hunger cues, the body increases the drive for food. It causes an obsession over food that leads to more hunger and a need for forbidden foods. ⁠.⁠The truth is that unhealthy foods feed bad bacteria that rewards the pleasure sensors. Bad bacteria are going to⁠push and push until they are given what they want (unhealthy foods).⁠What’s the secret? Change the bacteria composition in the gut. Good bacteria crave healthy foods and unhealthy bacteria crave unhealthy foods. If one is...

Why is gut health important? - mental health, mood, metabolism, immune system, nutrient absorption, food intolerance, food allergy, SIBO, IBS, indigestion, heartburn, reflux, bloating

“Why should I worry about gut health?”⁠Gut health provides freedom. Freedom to feel good. Freedom to live and eat normally without constant fear: fear of gaining weight, fear of getting sick, and fear of embarrassing digestive problems.⁠.⁠“Why should I set gut health as a goal?”⁠Gut health is at the center of health. Gut health determines the success of other health programs. Gut health affects mood, the metabolism, the immune system, nutrient absorption, etc. Why wouldn’t someone want a healthy gut?⁠

The secret to permanent weight loss? Gut health-prebiotics probiotics, metabolism, cravings, sugar addiction, appetite

It sounds crazy that weight loss programs are a great way to gain more weight, but it is true for a number of reasons. ⁠.⁠Restrictive diets don’t work. They actually increase the problems associated with weight gain. Can’t we all agree that if 90% of diet programs result in weight regain and if 40% of people actually gain more weight back than what they lost maybe those programs don’t work for most people?⁠(Note: I don’t want to take away from the 5-10% of people that make those programs happen long-term.

Leaky gut can be reversed using the right probiotic strains and immunoglobulins-allergies, metabolism, toxins, gluten, stress

Leaky gut can be reversed using the right probiotic strains and immunoglobulins-allergies, metabolism, toxins, gluten, stress

Harvard Medical School explains leaky gut as the gut lining weakening, resulting in holes developing in the⁠barrier. Toxins and bacteria then leak into the body, triggering inflammation in the gut and throughout⁠the body causing a reaction of health problems. (https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/putting-a-stop-⁠to-leaky-gut-2018111815289) ⁠.⁠UC San Diego Health recently said that the condition known as leaky gut “…may be more common, and more harmful, than previously thought.”⁠https://health.ucsd.edu/news/releases/Pages/2020-02-10-human-gut-in-a-dish-model-helps-define-⁠leaky-gut-outline-treatment-pathway.aspx⁠.⁠According to our resident microbiologist gut expert, leaky gut is one of the primary contributing factors⁠to many health problems. When constant inflammation is occurring, the body’s health falls apart.⁠⁠There are clinical studies that show that the right combination...

Regular constipation aids are not the solution to constipation-laxatives, motility

Isn’t it interesting that there are so many “solutions” to health problems that are only meant for “short-term” use, yet people then become reliant on them, which causes the issues to get worse? ⁠.⁠If laxatives are the short-term solution for constipation, and water, exercise, and fiber aren’t solving the⁠long-term problem then what? Maybe a special “poop” or “cleanse” product? Those are essentially different laxatives: short-term solutions hoping to lock customers in by contributing to the underlying problems.⁠.⁠Many healthy people that eat good foods loaded in healthy fiber that exercise daily and drink a lot of⁠water still get stuck with regular...

Increasing antibodies (immunoglobulins) is the secret to detoxing the gut-c. diff, e. coli, LPS, cleanse

A healthy gut has a very limited amount of pathogens/ toxins. A healthy gut has a lot of beneficial⁠ antibodies/immunoglobulins (i.e., IgG). ⁠.⁠Toxins include viruses, pathogenic bacteria, mold toxins, chemical toxins, fungi toxins, etc. They come in a variety of crazy names. The body fights these invaders with an army of immunoglobulins. ⁠.⁠When the body has an abundant army of immunoglobulins, toxins are bound, inactivated, and removed from the body. When the body does not have an abundant army of immunoglobulins toxins build up and cause damage. A high toxin load is very harmful for health.⁠.⁠A true “detox” will remove actual...

True Probiotics & Die-off Effect-pathogens, probiotics, bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, headaches

Remember! A battle is going on in the gut. Good bacteria and bad bacteria are constantly fighting over control. Introducing the right probiotics into the gut, is essentially adding support to the good side. ⁠⁠.⁠⁠Here are a couple points many don’t know:⁠There are probiotic strains that generate up to 12 natural antibiotics that naturally seek out, fight and destroy bad bacteria. (Ref. 1) These strong probiotic strains will colonize and build up in population. These probiotics push out bad stuff (bacteria and yeast) and help good stuff thrive.

Good luck breaking a food addiction and changing appetite with willpower. That alone makes most diets⁠not work long-term. Think about our relationship with food. We celebrate holidays with food. We celebrate and socialize with friends over food. We go out with our significant other to eat food. Most of us really enjoy food, right? We also eat when we are anxious, nervous, excited, happy, or depressed.⁠Traditional weight loss programs replace or restrict something most of us love with something we don’t⁠love.

Data shows that 90% of people that start a weight loss program and lose weight will regain that weight back and usually add more weight within 5 years.⁠⁠When it comes to weight loss, extreme diets only seem to help short-term and in the end, hurt your microbiome.⁠⁠We believe that supporting your microbiome is the key to revving up your metabolism to change your body composition.⁠⁠Per a recent study, a probiotic with Bacillus strains changed the human metabolism by increasing bacterial diversity over a 3 week period.⁠⁠Such changes include:⁠⬆️ Propionate (Short-Chain Fatty Acid) levels⁠⬇️ Lactate levels⁠⬇️ Ammonium levels⁠⁠Short-Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA's)...

Food avoidance in its entirety is miserable. Choosing to eat healthy and carefully is a wonderful thing…most of the time. Being forced to avoid food due to severe digestive consequences during special events is not so wonderful..We wanted to provide a solution to that.Here’s how to fight back:1. Take really good enzymes to break down every possible food type assuming that everything can possibly be the cause of issues. Some guess that they only have a gluten or dairy issue. Guessing results in missed coverage. Experience says that people with one intolerance typically have others..2. One can’t overdose on enzymes...

5 steps to Cleaning Up and Calming Down Gut Issues-SIBO, IBS, IBD, leaky gut, food intolerances, gas, bloating, constipation

Messed up gut? Hurting all the time?⁠.⁠What if I suggested that probiotics may not be the best place to start? Of course, the underlying issue⁠ and original contributor behind all other problems with different names (SIBO, IBS, IBD, autoimmune⁠ diseases, leaky gut, food intolerances, gas, bloating, constipation, obesity, etc.) is bacteria imbalances.⁠.⁠Naturally one might think that the best way to deal with bacteria imbalances is to throw tens of billions of CFUs of good bacteria of different types of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium into the gut.⁠.⁠But what happens if the gut is moving really slowly (slow motility) and that the issue behind the...

A detox that actually removes toxins-H. pylori, C. diff., E. coli, LPS

A detox that actually removes toxins-H. pylori, C. diff., E. coli, LPS

A detox should remove toxins. And a detox should be able to remove toxins and have supportive clinical evidence that it does in fact remove actual toxins. A detox should also be able to show what specific toxins it is removing. ⁠.⁠ Let’s start with an antibody/immunoglobulin concentrate (ImmunoLin®). The mechanism of action is⁠ binding of toxins (and allowing the body to excrete the toxins like it normally does) and strengthening⁠ the gut barrier. Antibodies (IgG) “…bind like a lock-and-key to the body’s foreign invaders, whether they⁠are viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites. They are the ‘search’ battalion of the immune system’s search-⁠and-destroy...

Ways the Keto Diet may be decimating the microbiome

Ways the Keto Diet may be decimating the microbiome

High-fat, low-carb diets are nothing new, but recently they’ve reclaimed their fame under a fresh, new name, The Ketogenic Diet. The vogue eating style rose to the spotlight after preliminary research suggested it could help shed body fat, clear up acne, elevate brain function and improve polycystic ovarian syndrome, among other things. The basis behind these health benefits is rooted in the idea that by starving the body of carbs and sugar, you can force your metabolism into ketosis. This metabolic state forces the body to burn fat for energy, stabilizes blood glucose and may reduce inflammation. While there is...

The Macro Diet

The Macro Diet

Athletes and bodybuilders have been encouraging some form of the Macro Diet for decades. This eating style focuses on the macronutrient profile of foods, rather than calorie content. Most followers of the diet aim for higher protein, lower carb meals to help them reach their ideal weight and body composition goals. Think of it this way: from a traditional calorie-counting perspective, a serving of cookies is equivalent to a serving of turkey – they are both about 150-170 calories. But from a macronutrient perspective, cookies are basically pure sugar and saturated fat, which can lead to more fat accumulation. Turkey,...

A soil-based or environmental probiotic supplement is designed to restore these missing bacteria to your gut. The problem is most probiotic supplements can’t survive the harsh acidic environment of...
