Probiotics

I generally alternate between different probiotics like the first two below every few months, and then take an S. Boulardii every day.

Equilibrium Probiotic Equilibrium Probiotic  – 115 strains of bacteria, the most available on the market, 85 found in no other probiotic. Designed from a healthy gut ecosystem by a scientist who did his post-doctoral work with the Human Microbiome Project. This is the next best thing to getting a fecal transplant. Great for rebuilding the gut microbiome after antibiotics, 200-person placebo-controlled study showing

  • 81% of participants reported a noticeable improvement in digestive function
  • 72% of participants reported a reduction in food cravings and mild weight loss
  • 54% of participants reported an increase in alertness and energy

Renew Life Extra Care Ultimate Flora – When you’re just wanting billions of Lactobacilli and Bifido bacteria for general GI and reproductive health, this is a very affordable choice, divided evenly between the two with the most studied strains.

Jarrow Formulas S. Bouldardii – Saccharomyces Boulardii or S. Bouldardii, as his friends know him, is a beneficial yeast. Especially important to take while you’re on antibiotics as it won’t be killed by them, like most probiotics (so save your money on probiotics besides these while on antibiotics). It has been well studied and shown to prevent or improve antibiotic-caused and traveler’s diarrhea; abdominal pain, bloating and constipation in adults with IBS; and H. Pylori infections in conjunction with Lactobacillus and Bifido bacteria.

Ancient Minerals

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Products – Many people are deficient in magnesium, or would like to take magnesium to help with sleep issues, but it tends to lead to loose stools. These options for magnesium supplementation bypass the digestive system. One of their products is a lotion containing both magnesium and melatonin to help with insomnia. Signs of magnesium deficiency include muscle spasms and cramps, facial tics, eye twitches, or involuntary eye movements, difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep, anxiety, fatigue, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, mental problems, irregular heartbeat and osteoporosis. 

Botanicals

Biocidin Throat SprayImage Biocidin Throat Spray and clickable link – I’ve now personally experienced it twice keeping me from getting a cold when I felt it coming on. After a presentation at a conference by the CEO, I’m totally sold on their products’ efficacy. I can educate you more about their other products for gut Purchase products through our Fullscript virtual dispensary.cleansing, detox, killing pathogenic bacteria and parasites, biofilms, yeast and viruses in the gut, mouth and sinuses.  You can purchase their products at a discount via my Fullscript dispensary.

Food

Bgreen Organic Millet Angel Hair Pasta – If you’re gluten-free, this pasta will make pasta eating great again. Or it you’re just wanting to eat less wheat or a whole grain pasta that isn’t terrible. Virtually indistinguishable from wheat pasta (in my opinion), cooks properly, doesn’t break up, etc. Just try it! It’s well worth the cost.

Also available on Amazon

BGreen Organic Millet & Brown Rice Japanese Ramen Noodles – Same deal as above – great alternative to straight rice noodles if you’re trying to reduce your rice intake (people who are gluten-free tend to have elevated levels of arsenic due to excessive rice consumption, as rice naturally absorbs arsenic).

Now Real Food Xylitol – This is my favorite sugar substitute for baking. 1/3 the calories of sugar and virtually no blood sugar effect, it’s a sugar alcohol whose most serious downside is a slight laxative effect (so don’t overdo eating things you bake with it). It substitutes 1:1 for sugar in recipes.

Also available on Amazon

 

Lakanto Maple-Flavored Syrup (monk fruit based) – If you’re trying to avoid sugar (as we all should be) but you still want that maple syrup flavor on your pancakes or want to use a non-sugar based syrup in baking, this is a great substitute. It doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste and 0 grams of sugar because it’s sweetened with monk fruit, the newest low calorie, natural sweetener on the market.

 

Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips – If you’re trying to avoid gluten, dairy and soy due to autoimmune or gut issues, these are the best (and maybe only) choice in chocolate chips.
