PROBIOTIC COMPLETE – The GI tract is a finely balanced environment where roughly 500 different strains of bacteria compete for space and nutrients. When there is a healthy balance (eubiosis), few symptoms exist. However, dysbiosis can occur when an overabundance of potentially harmful organisms prevail. The natural microflora balance can be upset by medications (such as antibiotics, oral contraceptives, etc.), excessive alcohol consumption, or poor dietary intake.
Because probiotics are live organisms, there are many challenges associated with manufacturing and distributing probiotic supplements. For a probiotic to be effective, it must be shelf-stable through the expiration date and precisely delivered to the intestinal tract, where it can have maximum benefit. BioShield® technology is an innovative manufacturing process developed to ensure consistent and reliable results. The microorganisms in Probiotic Complete are protected, sealed and freeze dried away from moisture, heat, light and oxygen. This allows the bacteria to remain dormant until they are exposed to moisture in the GI tract. By utilizing advanced encapsulation technology, the probiotic organisms are preserved and released on-target for maximum benefit.
Probiotic Complete is a unique probiotic formula designed to deliver active organisms shown to promote healthy gut microflora, protect intestinal integrity and boost immune function. Included in this formula is Saccharomyces boulardii, an extensively researched microorganism shown to help restore microflora balance by enhancing commensal organism function. Each Probiotic Complete capsule provides seven proven probiotic strains chosen for their ability to withstand the harsh gastrointestinal (GI) environment and adhere to the intestinal tract to deliver superior results.
VITAMIN D3 WITH VITAMIN K2 – This liquid combination of D3/K2 is tasteless and therefore effortless to take. It’s critical for vitamins D3 and K2 to be taken together, making this supplement is one of our favorites.
About 80% of the U.S. is deficient in vitamins D and K. Vitamin D supports bone health, heart and immune function, protecting against cancer. Vitamin D3 ensures absorption of calcium while vitamin K2 directs calcium to the proper location in the body, preventing it from depositing where it shouldn’t, such as in the arteries, organs and joints.
SUPER-C – Our vitamin C 500 is a patented buffered vitamin C designed to help prevent the potential stomach upset sometimes associated with high vitamin C intake. It helps support healthy immune function and is a good source of antioxidants provided by vitamin C. Scientific research suggests this particular vitamin C may boost Natural Killer cell activity due to its improved uptake of the vitamin by white blood cells, when compared to regular ascorbic acid.
I include vitamin C in my daily regimen, but have increased my dose recently to give my immune system an added boost.
Vitamin C has many properties, but in addition to being anti-viral, it’s beneficial for lung health. In a study performed on patients hospitalized for respiratory disease, they saw an 80% decreased death rate among those receiving a rather small dose of vitamin C, 200 mg.
The dose I recommend for daily maintenance is at least 1 gram (1,000 mg) per day, but at this time I would recommend gauging what your body actually needs based on the bowel tolerance test mentioned above. Don’t be surprised if you require several grams.
Super-C is our absolute favorite Vitamin C, researched to boost your natural killed (NK) cells, your immune defense army. This particular product has long been a part of our nutritional arsenal here at Root Cause, so I feel very confident recommending it to you.
