All probiotics are not the same, so what should you be looking for? - gut health, probiotics

Not all probiotics are the same. Actually, many of them aren't even remotely similar to others. Different ingredients (strains) usually means different performance. Comparing reseeding probiotics to gut management probiotics is like comparing apples and oranges. Actually, it is a bit more like comparing a riding lawn mower to a luxury sports car. There is a time and place for the riding lawn mower version. No question. But otherwise...If you are taking an antibiotic you need strains that are antibiotic resistant and that are shown to prevent imbalances from antibiotics. If you have food intolerances, you need a probiotic with...

Recurrent urinary tract problems - gut health, FAN

I shall not mention UTIs because supplement companies cannot help with infections. Only drugs and doctors can help with infections. But if you have urinary tract problems and want support or help with those issues, I've got you covered. Cranberry type products are said to work well to prevent bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder, which may help prevent bladder and other urinary tract problems. That being said, a lot of research says they don't work. Several studies suggest that D-Mannose has a good success rate and may be an alternative to antibiotics. D-Mannose works by way...

Why does fiber make things worse, shouldn't it make it better? - gut health, constipation

Why does fiber make things worse, shouldn't it make it better? - gut health, constipation

There are reasons our protocols start where and how they start. If you have any slow motility of the stomach (slow gastric emptying / gastroparesis), the last thing you want to do is load up on fiber. If constipation issues are the only problem, that is the only time I suggest our constipation protocol. Why? Fiber slows stomach emptying. Meaning, motility is a whole system issue. If you are trying to resolve constipation by adding in fiber when your stomach is also slow then you are likely causing more issues. Further, did you know that constipation is a problem caused...

3 secrets for hair growth - gut health, hair supplements

Warning: If your hair and nails already grow really well you may NOT want Hair Complex.  Honestly speaking, for some women it works too well, especially if you only want to cut your hair a few times each year. That being said, who doesn't want thicker, fuller, and more vibrant hair?  If you research hair loss in women specifically you will find this list for causing hair loss: 1) Hair style (traction alopecia) 2) Vitamin deficiency 3) Dieting 4) Restrictive diets 5) Toxic substances & medications 6) Extreme stress to the body and mind  7) Hormone changes Most people respond...

Food allergies and the mucosal barrier - gut health, immunoglobulins, MucoSave®

Food allergies and the mucosal barrier - gut health, immunoglobulins, MucoSave®

Why are food allergies increasing so dramatically? Lifestyle changes? Environmental changes?Western-style diet?Genetics alone can't explain it anymore.What is known is that evidence suggests that the dysfunction of the intestinal barrier contributes to food hypersensitivity through increased sensitization. One key part of helping with food allergies appears to be hyper focusing on soothing, calming, repairing, and rebuilding the mucosal barrier specifically. For this reason, our protocols load up on the MucoSave® and immunoglobulin ingredients. Protocols are built to effectively help the gut barrier (mucosal barrier and epithelial barrier).

Traveler's Constipation - gut health, constipation, digestion

Traveler's constipation is really common. I hear about it daily. It just so happens we know a lot of people with this issue. They go from regular to suddenly constipated the minute their butt hits the seat of a plane. When the body's natural rhythm changes so does motility. Drinking plenty of liquid, eating fruit, and consuming fiber, avoiding high fat foods (good luck with this one) may be helpful. What we find works best is the combo of Regularity and Upper GI Relief. It works great. You take it while you are on the trip. When you get back your system...

Sucralose wreaks havoc on the gut - gut health, probiotics, leaky gut

Sucralose wreaks havoc on the gut - gut health, probiotics, leaky gut

Sucralose can taste amazing to a lot of people. It has zero sugar. That is why it is used and sold in so many products. I think it is suggested to be great for people with diabetes and weight issues, right? Supplement companies sweeten everything with it: pre-workout mixes, protein powders, energy drinks, etc. But it wreaks havoc on the microbiota. Its a total disaster. "This work raises a host of concerns about the potential health effects associated with sucralose and its metabolites. It's time to revisit the safety and regulatory status of sucralose, because the evidence is mounting that...

Have you ever noticed most parasite protocols are very extensive with a lot of products? We noticed that too. And to be fair, Silver Fern™ products are big too. But we wanted something that could do more for less. Believe it or not, that is our goal. We were able to hit the mark for that goal with frequency activated nano Ag404 (FAN). What I can't say as a supplement company is that FAN kills pathogens in the gut. Only drugs are allowed to do that. However, FAN may be a good way to disassemble the outer protective shield of...

What most of us forget (including me) is that one issue in the gut can affect many others. In fact, I am increasingly having people start in the upper GI tract no matter what so we don't miss anything. As with all imbalances in the gut (the big nasty ones too), we really like the combination of immunoglobulins and AGNPS (for us this is in the form of frequency activated nano AG404) to help clean things up. Note 1:Immunoglobulins are binders. If you have constipation or slow motility issues, please wait until step 2 of a gut health protocol before...

Gut researchers do just that, they research. They research a lot. BTW - gut researchers then train doctors on the gut. (FYI for those that like the name doctor in front of everything.) Nano Scrub took a long time to come out with because there was a lot of research to do. When researchers both approve the science and take the product themselves I start to believe them.

6 side effects of Ozempic® & Wegovy® for weight loss- gut health, gastroparesis, constipation

If you have noticed people recently dropping crazy amounts of weight fast, they may be on either of these products (same product with two different names). These products use semaglutide. The brand name for this for weight loss is Wegovy®. The other name for it is Ozempic®. Semaglutide improves insulin resistance/reduces blood sugar. This is good for Type 2 Diabetes (produce more insulin and reduce blood sugar). When people stop taking them they usually regain the lost weight. I might call this a short-term benefit but long-term failure. Away from the issue of regaining the weight, what may be concerning...

Folate or folic acid for helping reduce postpartum depression - pregnancy, vitamins, folate, folic acid

Folate. The answer is folate or folic acid to help reduce perinatal depression symptoms. In 2011, the research suggests otherwise. In 2015, the research seems to turn around and suggest it dose help reduce/prevent postpartum depression. Folate is the natural version of vitamin B9. Folic acid is the synthetic version. The suggested dosing is between 400-1,000 mcg per day. Maybe something to discuss with your doctor if you are expecting?

Surprising causes of bloating

"I start the day with a flat stomach and end the day looking 6 months pregnant.""I am constantly bloated." I hear these statements A LOT. From both women AND men.

I am not aware of any one pill that fixes all things. Some individual products may provide a quick fix band-aid scenario, but if you have to keep taking it, is it really fixing the cause of the problem?...

Vitamin K2 (in the form of MK-7) has shown to be very good for regulating osteoporosis, atherosclerosis, cancer and inflammatory diseases without the risk of negative side effects or overdosing. Further, the research on Vitamin K and Vitamin D not absorbing well together seems to be on Vitamin K1, not Vitamin K2.

Beyond gut health, there are several triggers to address in order to fight off sugar cravings. There is a massive mental component to breaking up with sugar. When it drives your mood it becomes really hard to stop consuming it. Did you know that anti-depressants can cause cravings for sweets? Shocked? I'll be honest, I was a bit shocked.

In the case of magnesium stearate, while I don't think taking it in huge amounts is good, I can't find anything that should be scaring the crap out of people when it is consumed in small amounts in drugs and supplements. Most products that contain magnesium stearate contain a tiny amount of it. And if the most cautious companies that are phasing out of it...

Recent studies show the metabolism doesn't start to slow until after 60.🤯 So, middle age is no longer a good excuse for putting on weight. Then what's the deal with weight gain as we get older?

Granted, as we age we don't necessarily have the same health as we did early in life to go crazy on exercise programs. None the less, being active and actively pushing muscle...

Talk with your medical professional but also include a plan for ongoing gut maintenance. Obviously a gluten-free diet is the go-to with both celiac and gluten intolerance. Here are some...

Low stomach acid may be the cause of your reflux/heartburn. What can cause low stomach acid? - gut health, acid blockers

Low stomach acid may be the cause of your reflux/heartburn. What can cause low stomach acid? - gut health, acid blockers

If acid blockers are a major contributor to low stomach acid and if low stomach acid is one of the primary reasons behind all of your issues (including reflux and heartburn) do you use more of them or less? I suggest maybe less. People keep telling me that the secret is baking soda and water, which is like taking antacids (blocking acid). It is cheap and convenient. But how is that helping with the actual cause of the problem (low stomach acid) and is that a good long-term plan? Not according to most. But it is cheap and a great...

Gastritis is the result of an inflamed mucosa - gut health, stomach issues, h pylori

Gastritis is the result of an inflamed mucosa - gut health, stomach issues, h pylori

If gastritis is the result of an inflamed mucosa then wouldn't it make sense that soothing, repairing, and rebuilding the mucosa is the answer? And once the mucosa is getting the help it needs, doesn't it make sense to also address the potential H. pylori overgrowth possibilities?Be mindful, herbs and immunoglobulins aren't drugs: dosing matters, how long you use the ingredients matters, and doing everything in the proper order matters. MucoSave® at 800-1200 mg per day for 60-90 days may be most helpful for initially providing serious help to the mucosa. Do not take a flavor of MucoSave® that has...

Chronic constipation is more than just forcing bowel movements or a bacteria imbalance - gut health, motility, laxatives

Chronic constipation is more than just forcing bowel movements or a bacteria imbalance - gut health, motility, laxatives

Most constipation products and protocols don't work. Why? ⁠They focus on forced motility OR they focus on gut imbalances ONLY with probiotics. It is very tough to clean up something that is clogged up. ⁠⁠There are 4 keys to helping with constipation issues:⁠1) Motility activation (not the forced dependency motility provided by laxatives)⁠2) Soothing and calming the system. When the system is flared up it is going to be clogged up. Motility issues are an inflammatory issue. ⁠3) Lubrication. A dry colon produces dry waste that causes painful bowel movements.⁠4) Microbial imbalances. It is good to start this process, but...

Celiac disease and gut health - immunoglobulins, toxins, inflammation, gut barrier

Celiac disease and gut health - immunoglobulins, toxins, inflammation, gut barrier

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body. One way to possibly consider addressing autoimmune diseases, like Celiac disease, is to decrease immune activation by way of toxin binding and strengthening the gut barrier. Oral immunoglobulins, for example, are shown to help decrease immune activation. Given what we know about Celiac disease, the answers to help address this may be in addressing microbial imbalances, gut barrier integrity, inflammation, and strengthening the immune system. A gut health protocol may want to consider high doses of immunoglobulins, building up the gut barrier, increasing...
