Intestinal Mayhem

Whether we’re talking about something simple but embarrassing as: gas, bloating, burping, and bad breath- or something potentially dangerous: diarrhea, colitis, diverticulitis, or Crohn’s- wouldn’t you agree that the proper breaking down of what we consume is pretty darned important?

One may think of heartburn as ‘normal’ which is traditionally addressed with Proton Pump Inhibitors. However, they come with a very expensive price tag-including your life! St. Louis researchers from Washington University School of Medicine and Veterans Affairs Health Care have linked long-term use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) to fatal cases of cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, and upper gastrointestinal cancer. Such risks increase with the duration of PPI use, even when taken at low doses.1

Considering the long-term cost of continuing to take one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world, we’d like to offer a very pleasing alternative to you, from deep within the ground.

Our relationship with soil-based organisms can be traced back to our ancestors who would dig vegetables out of the ground, with extra soil and bacteria on their surface. This allowed for a symbiotic relationship to evolve between humans and Soil Based Microorganisms (SBO’s).

The beauty of SBO’s is at least 3 fold: They’re dairy-free, don’t need refrigeration, and can bypass the stomach thereby doing their job in our intestinal tract. In order to get the best of the best, you’ll need to shop carefully:

Look for the genus, species, and strain. Strain is denoted by a series of letters/numbers that come after the species name (e.g. DE111). Strain is extremely important since two strains of the same species can have very different characteristics. Unfortunately, only about half of probiotics on the market list the specific strains they contain on the label.

CoreBiotic® combines three fully sequenced and registered spore-based probiotics along with VitaFiber ® prebiotic to support a healthy microbiome. Each strain was specifically chosen for its mechanisms of action, backed by supporting research.” If you’d prefer without Fiber, ask for Core Biotic Sensitive.
