Certified organic blanched almond flour from California.

$15.00

Certified Organic, from a family farm in California.

Steam treated and sproutable. Flavourful, mid-sized, SSR (Select Sheller Run),  hard-shelled varieties Butte/Padre. These do not contain any bitter nuts.  

Being from California they must be treated with "dry steam" to kill any pathagens. They are only exposed to the steam for a few seconds and are still viable and will sprout as well as unpasteurized almonds, so they can be considered unheated. Makes excellent nutmilk.

U.S. SELECT SHELLER RUN – These are typically mid-quality grades and easily the best choice for applications where almonds with minimal sorting/processing can be incorporated with other grades/ingredients. E.g., a confectionery product where a higher level of chip & scratched kernels is accepted, while they're also best suited for further processing - such as blanching, grinding, roasting, dicing, and slicing.

Certified Organic Baobab from South Africa

The Baobab, Adansonia digitata, also known as the upside down tree, and monkey bread tree, is a drought-tolerant tree common to much of sub-Saharan Africa.

It is one of the oldest trees on the planet!  It reaches heights of between 5–25 m (in rare cases 30 m) tall, and up to 7 m (in rare cases 11 m) in trunk diameter. This is a very versatile tree and the young leaves, which can either be palmate or simple, are often picked and eaten as a form of spinach. The leaves are also dried as a coarser tea cut.

The fruit is found inside hard, coconut-shaped, pods that hang upside-down from the trees. The pulp dries naturally on the tree, so there is no heat extraction, freeze-drying or pasteurization involved in the processing. Only a mechanical process is used to obtain the soft, powdery pulp. It has a unique pleasant flavor reminiscent of pear with a mild slightly acidic after taste due to its high percentage of organic acids such as citric acid, tartaric acid, malic acid and succinic acid.

Benefits:

  • Incredible concentration vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants 
  • 6 x more vitamin C than oranges (300mg/100g)
  • Thiamine (Vitamin B1) and Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) contribute to increased energy levels
  • Boosts the immune system and reduce fatigue
  • The vitamin C increases the absorption of iron and calcium. 2 x more calcium than milk (280 mg/100g) 6 x more potassium that bananas (150 mg/100g) 30 x more fiber than lettuce (44 g/100g)
  • The high fiber content benefits the digestive and intestinal system
  • 2 x more antioxidants that Goji berries (25.000 umole TE/100g). The high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capacity of polysaccharides can aid in inflammation reduction.
  • More iron than red meat. The high content of Iron, Potassium and vital blood clotting ingredients can help support the circulatory system
  • Low in sugar and fat

The nutritional profile and properties of the Baobab Pulp make it an interesting new ingredient for the food, nutraceutical, beverage and cosmetic industries. It can be used in a variety of formulations to provide nutritional fortification, flavor enhancement, viscosity, texture modification and a natural source of nutrients.

Applications/Use: Energy bars and drinks, fruit smoothies, ice creams, jams, sauces, chocolate, baked goods, yogurt. Taking it every day will supplement your recommended daily allowance of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.

Certified organic and wild-crafted from Peru.

The small red Camu berry is respected worldwide as “nature’s vitamin pill.” Containing a higher naturally occurring vitamin C content than any other food on the planet, Camu has long been used for its nutritional and medicinal attributes. Freeze-dried to protect the nutrient potential of this extraordinary berry.

The natural colour of the pulp of camu camu is pinkish. and this has higher vitamin C content and tastes much better than the rest of the fruit. Regular camu camu powder is made from the entire fruit (skin, pulp, and also seeds). When you make powder in the regular processing, it gets ground up and dried. The colour is brownish due to the other parts of the camu camu fruit, which has more fiber (the seeds especially), as well as exposure to oxygen and length of processing. 

It takes 25 lb Wild-Crafted Camu berries to make 1lb Powder.

Recommendations: Stir 1 tsp or more to water, juice, smoothie or yogurt with a spoon or blender. Does not require refrigeration.

Proven Health Benefits of Dates

Very Nutritious
Dates have an excellent nutrition profile.

Most of the calories in dates come from carbs. The rest are from a very small amount of protein. Despite their calories, dates contain some important vitamins and minerals in addition to a significant amount of fiber.

A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving provides the following nutrients:

• Calories: 277

• Carbs: 75 grams

• Fiber: 7 grams

• Protein: 2 grams

• Potassium: 20% of the RDI

• Magnesium: 14% of the RDI

• Copper: 18% of the RDI

• Manganese: 15% of the RDI

• Iron: 5% of the RDI

• Vitamin B6: 12% of the RDI

Dates are also high in antioxidants, which may contribute to many of their health benefits.

High in Fiber
With almost 7 grams of fiber in a 3.5-ounce serving, including dates in your diet is a great way to increase your fiber intake.

Fiber can benefit your digestive health by preventing constipation. It promotes regular bowel movements by contributing to the formation of stool.

In one study, 21 people who consumed 7 dates per day for 21 days experienced improvements in stool frequency and had a significant increase in bowel movements compared to when they did not eat dates.

Furthermore, the fiber in dates may be beneficial for blood sugar control. Fiber slows digestion and may help prevent blood sugar levels from spiking too high after eating.For this reason, dates have a low glycemic index (GI), which measures how quickly your blood sugar rises after eating a certain food.

High in Antioxidants
Antioxidants protect your cells from free radicals, which are unstable molecules that may cause harmful reactions in your body and lead to disease.

Compared to similar types of fruit, such as figs and dried plums, dates appear to have the highest antioxidant content.

Here’s an overview of the three most potent antioxidants in dates:

• Flavonoids: Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that may help reduce inflammation and have been studied for their potential to reduce the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and certain types of cancer.

• Carotenoids: Carotenoids are proven to promote heart health and may also reduce the risk of eye-related disorders, such as macular degeneration.

• Phenolic acid: Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, phenolic acid may help lower the risk of cancer and heart disease.

May Promote Brain Health
Laboratory studies have found dates to be helpful for lowering inflammatory markers, such as interleukin 6 (IL-6), in the brain. High levels of IL-6 are associated with a higher risk of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Additionally, animal studies have shown dates to be helpful for reducing the activity of amyloid beta proteins, which can form plaques in the brain.

When plaques accumulate in the brain, they may disturb communication between brain cells, which can ultimately lead to brain cell death and Alzheimer’s disease.

One animal study found that mice fed food mixed with dates had significantly better memory and learning ability, as well as less anxiety-related behaviors, compared to those that did not eat them.

The potential brain-boosting properties of dates have been attributed to their content of antioxidants known to reduce inflammation, including flavonoids.

May Promote Natural Labor
Eating these fruits throughout the last few weeks of pregnancy may promote cervical dilation and lower the need for induced labor. They may also be helpful for reducing labor time.

In one study, 69 women who consumed 6 dates per day for 4 weeks prior to their due date were 20% more likely to go into labor naturally and were in labor for significantly less time than those who did not eat them.

Another study of 154 pregnant women found that those who ate dates were much less likely to be induced compared to those who did not.

A third study found similar results in 91 pregnant women who consumed 70–76 grams of dates daily starting the 37th week of pregnancy. They were in active labor for an average of 4 fewer hours than those who did not eat dates.

The role dates may have in pregnancy is likely due to compounds that bind to oxytocin receptors and appear to mimic the effects of oxytocin in the body. Oxytocin is a hormone that causes labor contractions during childbirth.

Additionally, dates contain tannins, which are compounds that have been shown to help facilitate contractions. They are also a good source of natural sugar and calories, which are necessary to maintain energy levels during labor.

Excellent Natural Sweetener
Dates are a source of fructose, which is a natural type of sugar found in fruit.

For this reason, dates are very sweet and also have a subtle caramel-like taste. They make a great sugar substitute in recipes due to the nutrients, fiber and antioxidants that they provide.

The best way to substitute dates for sugar is to make date paste by mixing dates with water in a blender. A rule of thumb is to replace sugar with date paste at a 1:1 ratio.

Other Potential Health Benefits
Dates have been claimed to have a few other health benefits that have not yet been extensively studied.

• Bone health: Dates contain several minerals, including phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium. All of these have been studied for their potential to prevent bone-related conditions like osteoporosis.

• Blood sugar control: Dates have the potential to help due to their low glycemic index, fiber and antioxidants. Thus, eating them may benefit diabetes management.

Laboratory studies have found dates to be helpful for lowering inflammatory markers, such as interleukin 6 (IL-6), in the brain. High levels of IL-6 are associated with a higher risk of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Additionally, animal studies have shown dates to be helpful for reducing the activity of amyloid beta proteins, which can form plaques in the brain.

When plaques accumulate in the brain, they may disturb communication between brain cells, which can ultimately lead to brain cell death and Alzheimer’s disease.

One animal study found that mice fed food mixed with dates had significantly better memory and learning ability, as well as less anxiety-related behaviors, compared to those that did not eat them.

The potential brain-boosting properties of dates have been attributed to their content of antioxidants known to reduce inflammation, including flavonoids.

May Promote Natural Labor
Eating these fruits throughout the last few weeks of pregnancy may promote cervical dilation and lower the need for induced labor. They may also be helpful for reducing labor time.

In one study, 69 women who consumed 6 dates per day for 4 weeks prior to their due date were 20% more likely to go into labor naturally and were in labor for significantly less time than those who did not eat them.

Another study of 154 pregnant women found that those who ate dates were much less likely to be induced compared to those who did not.

A third study found similar results in 91 pregnant women who consumed 70–76 grams of dates daily starting the 37th week of pregnancy. They were in active labor for an average of 4 fewer hours than those who did not eat dates.

The role dates may have in pregnancy is likely due to compounds that bind to oxytocin receptors and appear to mimic the effects of oxytocin in the body. Oxytocin is a hormone that causes labor contractions during childbirth.

Additionally, dates contain tannins, which are compounds that have been shown to help facilitate contractions. They are also a good source of natural sugar and calories, which are necessary to maintain energy levels during labor.

Excellent Natural Sweetener
Dates are a source of fructose, which is a natural type of sugar found in fruit.

For this reason, dates are very sweet and also have a subtle caramel-like taste. They make a great sugar substitute in recipes due to the nutrients, fiber and antioxidants that they provide.

The best way to substitute dates for sugar is to make date paste by mixing dates with water in a blender. A rule of thumb is to replace sugar with date paste at a 1:1 ratio.

Other Potential Health Benefits
Dates have been claimed to have a few other health benefits that have not yet been extensively studied.

• Bone health: Dates contain several minerals, including phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium. All of these have been studied for their potential to prevent bone-related conditions like osteoporosis.

• Blood sugar control: Dates have the potential to help due to their low glycemic index, fiber and antioxidants. Thus, eating them may benefit diabetes management.

The sprouting rate for these seems to be about 80% to 90%, which is excellent.

Current scientific research all points to the benefits of eating leafy green vegetables, which in part is due to the tremendous health benefits of Sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is highest in broccoli sprouts; eating a cup of broccoli sprouts will provide the same amount of Sulforaphane of about 25 cups of mature broccoli. 2 tablespoons of seeds will provide you about 8 cups of sprouts (after ~ 5days), that's equivalent to eating about 200 cups of broccoli.

According to one study, Sulforaphane content is highest at around 48h to 72h (soaking time excluded). The sprouts will look tiny at this stage. If you want to put the sprouts in salads, you probably want to wait for 4 to 5 days. We use mason jars plus mesh netting. 2 tablespoons of seeds per jar.

organic buckwheat

Certified Organic and Sproutable, from Canada.

A mainstay of traditional Eastern European cuisine. Organic Buckwheat Groats are the hulled seeds of the buckwheat plant. Buckwheat groats are gluten free seeds from a plant related to rhubarb. The outer husk is pulled away and the grain-like fruit is harvested and eaten. First cultivated in Southeast Asia thousands of years ago, in time buckwheat journeyed west and took root in Eastern Europe, where it became the star of many classic dishes. Buckwheat is very nutritious, making it popular in many nations across the globe. Buckwheat provides complete protein, including all the essential amino acids.

These groats can be steam-cooked like rice for salads and side dishes or ground in your own mill into fresh flour. Buckwheat also make an excellent hot breakfast porridge or side dish at dinner and can replace rice or any other grain called for in pilafs, casseroles and more. Use Buckwheat in any recipe that calls for whole grains. These soft white seeds have a mild flavor, but when toasted or roasted, they have a delightfully intense flavor.

Flax seed is: gluten free, high in omega-3 and fiber, and tastes great.

Flax (Linum usitatissimum) is a beautiful blue flowered plant grown on the plains of Central Canada and the North Central United States. Modern research has taken great interest in flaxseed with study after study confirming that the oil and fiber components of flaxseed have wonderful health benefits.

  • Flaxseed has a high ratio of Linolenic (Omega-3) to Linoleic (omega-6) fatty acids. While many other plant seeds contain a higher ratio of omega-6 fats, flaxseed is the one of the few seeds that contains a much higher ratio of the essential omega-3 fats.
  • Flaxseed oil is one of the richest sources of OMEGA-3 fatty acid, Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) an ESSENTIAL FATTY ACID (EFA). This fatty acid is considered essential, meaning that your body cannot make it but requires it and so must derive all of it from the diet. The average American diet is lacking in this fat. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of Organic Whole Flaxseed provides 9 grms of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Flaxseed is unique in that 48% of its total fat content is omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Flaxseed contains very high amounts of DIETARY FIBER, both SOLUBLE and INSOLUBLE. Flaxseed is 28%-35% fiber, 1/3 of which is soluble, and the other 2/3 insoluble. Soluble fiber also plays an important role in maintaining the “good bacteria” in our bowel, like Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacteria. Insoluble fiber increases the bulk of stools.
  • Flaxseed is an outstanding source of many essential nutrients, including: proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, folate, vitamin B-6, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, iron, thiamine, copper, zinc, calcium and phosphorus.

PREPARATION & USE OF FLAXSEED
Flaxseed must be finely cut into a meal to get maximum benefits of the OMEGA-3 oil and dietary fiber. We recommend that you buy a coffee grinder and dedicate its use to grinding flax seeds. Once ground, the flaxseeds should be consumed quickly, as the oil inside the seeds oxidizes rapidly.

The recommended daily amount of flaxseeds to eat is about 1–2 Tbsp. The most beneficial amount for maximum nutritional value of ground flaxseed is 2 tablespoons daily. It can be mixed into 10–12 oz. of juice or water. Make sure you use plenty of water when adding flaxseed to your diet. Ground flaxseed can easily be added on top of dishes including: baked products, stir-fry dishes, soup or stews, cereal and yogurt.

Flaxseed is 35–40% oil so a similar amount may be omitted from any recipe requiring oil that also includes ground flaxseed. Similarly, about 1 Tbsp. of ground flaxseed steeped in 3 Tbsp. of water for 2-3 minutes will substitute for one egg in recipes.

French lentils are a variety of green lentils. What sets them apart from standard green lentils is their slightly darker hue and smaller size. They’re about one third the size of standard green lentils. They are special because they hold their shape better than pretty much any other type of lentils, so they are the ideal contender for salads as well as light soups, when you’d rather the lentils in the pot not turn to mush. Their flavor is also slightly different than other types; it’s a bit nutty and peppery, with a slight mineral-like, earthy flavor.

These lentils are grown in beautiful British Columbia on healthy organic soils. It is part of Fieldstone Granary's coordinated Organic Producer plan, where crops are grown within one degree of separation, according to the high standards of the Canadian Organic Regime. This way Fieldstone can assure a high level of purity and integrity of the grain.

Storage: Store lentils in an airtight container in a cool, dry and dark place, for up to 12 months. Cooked lentils will keep fresh in the refrigerator for about three days if placed in a covered container.

Nigella Black Cumin Seeds

Certified Organic from India.

When it comes to versatility and the power of its health benefits, Nigella seeds (also called black cumin) stand above other botanicals.

A Long History of Therapeutic Use; The black seed of nigella sativa (black cumin seed) has been used for over three thousand years for preventing and treating many different diseases. In ancient texts and historical documents black cumin seed is noted for its therapeutic attributes and ability to support the body in its own natural healing processes. Archeological studies report that black cumin seed seeds have been found in several sites from ancient Egypt, including in the tomb of Tutankhamun. It has been revered as a beauty secret since ancient times as Queen Nefertiti, renowned for her complexion, was, a reportedly a devoted black cumin seed user. Ibri Sina, the Persian physician and philosopher, discussed black cumin seed in the text Canon of Medicine, considered a hallmark publication in the history of human medicine and used as the primary medical text throughout Europe until the 17th century. In it he states that black cumin seed has preventive and restorative features as it “stimulates the body’s energy and helps in recovery from fatigue and dispiritedness.”
 
What conditions can black cumin seed help address?

  • Cancer. Black cumin seed has potent anti-oxidant properties and these are thought to be behind the cancer prevention properties demonstrated in animal studies. In vitro and animal studies also show inhibition and reduction of tumor growth in various types of cancer including blood, breast, colon, pancreatic, liver, lung, skin, kidney, prostate and cervix. There are also demonstrated benefits as an adjunctive to chemotherapy in humans—for instance, black cumin seed shows a potential ability to decrease the incidence of side effects in children with brain tumors who are on chemotherapy. Its active component, thymoquinone, sensitizes brain cancer cells to chemotherapy, making treatment more effective.
  • Heart Disease and Diabetes. Black cumin seed favorably affects several parameters related to heart disease riskincluding lowering total and LDL cholesterol, reducing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, reducing plaque formation. It also reduces blood glucose, as well as diabetic-associated complications such as neuropathy.
  • Infections. Black cumin seed is a potent antimicrobial with the ability to fight bacteria, parasites, fungi and even viruses. It has demonstrated activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), the strain of bacteria that is difficult to treat and resistant to antibiotics. Black cumin seed even reduces viral load and improves other markers in patients with hepatitis C.
  • Neurological Conditions. Black cumin seed has been shown in in vitro and animal studies to be protective of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury. Learning and memory is also improved in animals given black cumin seed. Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties are thought to be responsible for this effect.
  • Immune Disorders. Black cumin seed has been shown helpful in autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and rheumatoid arthritis, and also allergic asthma, sinusitis, and eczema. For a deeper dive into the application of black cumin seed for asthma and allergy, evidenced by several human studies, you’ll want to read our recent article by CDP colleagueSezelle Gereau, Functional otolaryngologist: Consider Nigella Sativa for Asthma and Allergy.
  • Pain. Black cumin seed oil, applied topically, is better than moderate dosing of oral acetaminophen (paracetamol) at reducing pain from knee osteoarthritis. Oral black cumin seed oil also has general analgesic effects, according to animal studies.
  • Weight Loss. Supplementation with N. sativa exerts a moderate effect on reduction in body weight, body mass index and waist circumference.

What Form to Take? Seed or Oil? And How Much?
In human clinical trials, dosages of 1-3 grams of black cumin seed powder has been used (orally) for up to 12 months. 2 months is recommended before checking on changes to cholesterol or blood glucose management. Black cumin seed oil is used orally at doses up to 5 mL or 40 mg per kg for up to 8 weeks for therapeutic effects. Topical use, for example for knee osteoarthritis, has included 1 mL applied locally three times per day.

Certified Organic and Truly Raw from wild trees in Spain. 

Truly raw. They have taken special care not to heat it while grinding into a fine powder. This may be the only unheated carob available in North America! 

Carob is a mineral rich food that has a calming effect. Carob is high in fiber and rich in polyphenols that have strong antiviral and antiseptic properties, making it effective when given to treat bacterial-induced diarrhea. Carob is a wonderful substitute for cocoa because it contains fewer calories, is naturally sweet, and, unlike cocoa or sweet chocolate, is caffeine-free and non addictive and has no theobromine or oxalic acid. It's also low in fat and sodium, calcium-rich and a good source of potassium, while, unlike cacao and chocolate, it does not interfere with the body's ability to assimilate calcium.

Certified Organic from Egypt. 

This common herb is capable of mobilizing mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum in both bones and the central nervous system. It is probably the only effective agent in mobilizing mercury stored in the inracellular space (attached to mitochondria, tubulin, liposomes etc) and in the nucleus of the cell (reversing DNA damage of mercury). Because cilantro mobilizes more toxins then it can carry out of the body, it may flood the connective tissue (where the nerves reside) with metals, that were previously stored in safer hiding places. This process is called re- toxification. It can easily be avoided by simultaneously giving an intestinal toxin-absorbing agent. Our definite choice is the algal organism chlorella. A recent animal study demonstrated rapid removal of aluminum from the skeleton superior to any known other detox agent. 


Dosage and application:  Make tea with 1 Tbsp of dried cilantro, 2 times /day in the beginning; drink tea just before a meal OR 30 minutes after taking Chlorella.

Gradually increase dose to 3 Tbsp, 3 times/day, for full benefit. During the initial phase of the detox cilantro should be given 1 week on, 2 –3 weeks off. 


*1 Tbsp dried = 4 Tbsp fresh.

(cilantro causes the gallbadder to dump bile - containing the excreted neurotoxins - into the small intestine. The bile -release occurs naturally as we are eating and is much enhanced by cilantro. If no chlorella is taken, most neurotoxins are reabsorbed on the way down the small intestine by the abundant nerve endings of the enteric nervous system).

Certified Organic from Peru. Minimum 5-6% curcumin

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) from the ginger family, Zingiberaceae is native to southwest India, and comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine and has been considered as the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.

Curcumin is thought to be the primary pharmacological agent in turmeric and the volatile oil fraction of turmeric has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity.In numerous studies, curcumin’s anti-inflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to potent drugs and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents. Unlike the drugs, curcumin produces no toxicity. Curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory and its antioxidant properties have been known to have beneficial effects on several factors known to play a role in heart disease. As evidence suggests, Curcumin can cross the blood-brain barrier and has also shown some promise in treating depression by boosting the brain neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.

Nigella Black Cumin Seeds

Certified Organic from India.

When it comes to versatility and the power of its health benefits, Nigella seeds (also called black cumin) stand above other botanicals.

A Long History of Therapeutic Use; The black seed of nigella sativa (black cumin seed) has been used for over three thousand years for preventing and treating many different diseases. In ancient texts and historical documents black cumin seed is noted for its therapeutic attributes and ability to support the body in its own natural healing processes. Archeological studies report that black cumin seed seeds have been found in several sites from ancient Egypt, including in the tomb of Tutankhamun. It has been revered as a beauty secret since ancient times as Queen Nefertiti, renowned for her complexion, was, a reportedly a devoted black cumin seed user. Ibri Sina, the Persian physician and philosopher, discussed black cumin seed in the text Canon of Medicine, considered a hallmark publication in the history of human medicine and used as the primary medical text throughout Europe until the 17th century. In it he states that black cumin seed has preventive and restorative features as it “stimulates the body’s energy and helps in recovery from fatigue and dispiritedness.”
 
What conditions can black cumin seed help address?

  • Cancer. Black cumin seed has potent anti-oxidant properties and these are thought to be behind the cancer prevention properties demonstrated in animal studies. In vitro and animal studies also show inhibition and reduction of tumor growth in various types of cancer including blood, breast, colon, pancreatic, liver, lung, skin, kidney, prostate and cervix. There are also demonstrated benefits as an adjunctive to chemotherapy in humans—for instance, black cumin seed shows a potential ability to decrease the incidence of side effects in children with brain tumors who are on chemotherapy. Its active component, thymoquinone, sensitizes brain cancer cells to chemotherapy, making treatment more effective.
  • Heart Disease and Diabetes. Black cumin seed favorably affects several parameters related to heart disease riskincluding lowering total and LDL cholesterol, reducing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, reducing plaque formation. It also reduces blood glucose, as well as diabetic-associated complications such as neuropathy.
  • Infections. Black cumin seed is a potent antimicrobial with the ability to fight bacteria, parasites, fungi and even viruses. It has demonstrated activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), the strain of bacteria that is difficult to treat and resistant to antibiotics. Black cumin seed even reduces viral load and improves other markers in patients with hepatitis C.
  • Neurological Conditions. Black cumin seed has been shown in in vitro and animal studies to be protective of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury. Learning and memory is also improved in animals given black cumin seed. Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties are thought to be responsible for this effect.
  • Immune Disorders. Black cumin seed has been shown helpful in autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and rheumatoid arthritis, and also allergic asthma, sinusitis, and eczema. For a deeper dive into the application of black cumin seed for asthma and allergy, evidenced by several human studies, you’ll want to read our recent article by CDP colleagueSezelle Gereau, Functional otolaryngologist: Consider Nigella Sativa for Asthma and Allergy.
  • Pain. Black cumin seed oil, applied topically, is better than moderate dosing of oral acetaminophen (paracetamol) at reducing pain from knee osteoarthritis. Oral black cumin seed oil also has general analgesic effects, according to animal studies.
  • Weight Loss. Supplementation with N. sativa exerts a moderate effect on reduction in body weight, body mass index and waist circumference.

What Form to Take? Seed or Oil? And How Much?
In human clinical trials, dosages of 1-3 grams of black cumin seed powder has been used (orally) for up to 12 months. 2 months is recommended before checking on changes to cholesterol or blood glucose management. Black cumin seed oil is used orally at doses up to 5 mL or 40 mg per kg for up to 8 weeks for therapeutic effects. Topical use, for example for knee osteoarthritis, has included 1 mL applied locally three times per day.

Ashwagandha is a powerful plant; It is a member of the Solanaceae family with over 4,000 years of traditional use in its native India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

Ashwagandha is classified as a Medharasayan, which is the Ayurvedic category of foods and nutrients that promote learning and memory retrieval. Sometimes referred to as “Indian Ginseng,” it is traditionally used in conditions of debility, emaciation, impotence, and premature aging. The translation of Ashwagandha roughly is “the smell and strength of a horse”, alluding to its aphrodisiac properties. This plant is also considered a Tonic and an Adaptogen. Due to the potential benefits of ashwagandha in sleep, it is used to help promote normal sleep patterns and encourage a healthy inflammatory response.

1. Reduces Stress and Anxiety: Researchers have reported that Ashwagandha blocked the stress pathway in the brains of rats by regulating chemical signaling in the nervous system. In a 60-day study in 64 people with chronic stress, those in the group that supplemented with ashwagandha reported a 69% reduction in anxiety and insomnia, on average, compared with 11% in the placebo group. In another 6-week study, 88% of people who took ashwagandha reported a reduction in anxiety, compared with 50% of those who took a placebo.

2. Anti-Cancer Properties: Several studies have shown ashwagandha contains compounds that may help fight certain types of cancer. Researchers aren’t sure how as of yet, but extracts in the herb seem to limit or inhibit the activity of cancer cells in breast, colon, prostate, ovarian, lung, and brain cancers. It does the same for thyroid, gastrointestinal, cervix, and skin (melanoma) cancers. Ashwagandha is also generally considered safe to use with traditional cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. Some experts say it may ease certain side effects, like a weak immune system. However, most of these studies have been done on cancer cells specifically or animals with cancer, and not humans.

3. Reduces Cortisol Levels: Cortisol is widely known as a stress hormone given that your adrenal glands release it in response to stress as well as when your blood sugar levels get too low. In one study in chronically stressed adults, those who supplemented with ashwagandha had significantly greater reductions in cortisol compared with the control group. Those taking the highest dose experienced a 30% reduction, on average.

4. Reduces Blood Sugar: Several studies have shown that ashwagandha reduces blood sugar levels. In a 4-week study in people with schizophrenia, those treated with ashwagandha had an average reduction in fasting blood sugar levels of 13.5 mg/dL, compared with 4.5 mg/dL in those who received a placebo.

5. Reduces Inflammation: Several animal studies have shown that ashwagandha helps decrease inflammation. Studies in humans have found that it increases the activity of natural killer cells, which are immune cells that fight infection and help you stay healthy. It has also been shown to decrease markers of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein (CRP). This marker is linked to an increased risk of heart disease. In one controlled study, the group who took 250 mg of standardized ashwagandha extract daily had a 36% decrease in CRP, on average, compared with a 6% decrease in the placebo group.

6. Increases Testosterone in Men In a study containing 75 infertile men, the group treated with ashwagandha showed increased sperm count and motility, which lead researchers to believe Ashwagandha supplements may have powerful effects on testosterone levels and reproductive health. In another study, men who received ashwagandha for stress experienced higher antioxidant levels and overall improved sperm quality. After just 3 months of treatment, a whopping 14% of the men’s partners had become pregnant.

7. Increases Strength and Exercise Performance: In a study with healthy young adults who took 500 milligrams of ashwagandha daily for 8 weeks, it determined they had more speed and strength during exercise than people who took a placebo. They also demonstrated better breathing, taking in more oxygen. In a study to determine a safe and effective dosage for ashwagandha, healthy men who took 750–1,250 mg of pulverized ashwagandha root per day gained muscle strength after 30 days. In another study, those who took ashwagandha had significantly greater gains in muscle strength and size. It also more than doubled their reductions in body fat percentage, compared with the placebo group.

8. Reduce Depression: This has not been thoroughly studied, however, limited research done has shown that ashwagandha possibly has a positive effect in reducing depression. In one controlled 60-day study in 64 stressed adults, those who took 600 mg of high-concentration ashwagandha extract per day reported a 79% reduction in severe depression, while the placebo group reported a 10% increase.

9. Lower Cholesterol and Triglycerides: In addition to its well-known and documented anti-inflammatory effects, ashwagandha may help improve heart health by reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels. In particular, animal studies have found that it significantly decreases levels of these blood fats. One animal study in rats found that it lowered total cholesterol and triglyceride levels by 53% and nearly 45%, respectively. In a 60-day study in chronically stressed adults, the group taking the highest dosage of standardized ashwagandha extract experienced a 17% decrease in LDL (bad) cholesterol and an 11% decrease in triglycerides, on average.

10. Improve Memory: Several test-tube and animal studies have suggested that ashwagandha may mitigate memory and brain function problems caused by injury or disease, and it promotes antioxidant activity that protects nerve cells from harmful free radicals. In one study, rats with epilepsy that were treated with ashwagandha had nearly a complete reversal of spatial memory impairment. Likely this was caused by a reduction in oxidative stress.

11. Improve Sleep: I’m big on sleep quality (as some readers may already know), which means I examine multiple ways exercise, hydration, diet, and supplementation can improve sleep. Ashwagandha may improve sleep according to one study with humans that showed taking 300 milligrams of the herb two times daily improved sleep. Another study on animals found that the triethylene glycol in ashwagandha is what brings sleep on.

How to Take Ashwagandha: It’s best to take 1/4-1/2 tsp of Ashwghanda with food, twice daily. Personally, I prefer to take the first dose in the morning and the second in the evening. On days when I’m intermittent fasting, I’ll take it in the afternoon and evening once I have broken fast.

Conclusion: It may be worth considering adding Ashwghanda to your supplement regimen. However, I do suggest checking if there is any potential conflict with existing supplements or medications you may be taking. Often, it’s best to check with your doctor if it makes sense for you to begin taking Ashwagandha. However, it’s worth noting from my personal experience with doctors that many of them have no clue about holistic or natural herbs and remedies, so doing your own diligence/research may be more beneficial when considering taking Ashwagandha.

Our astaxanthin comes from fresh water algae grown on our farm in Kona, Hawaii, USA. Most other well-known antioxidants cannot do this. Synthetic Astaxanthin is nowhere near as good.

Key Nutritional Information:

• 100 times stronger antioxidant power than Vitamin E
• 4 times more antioxidant power than beta carotene
• 800 times more antioxidant power than CoQ10
• 6000 times stronger antioxidant power than Vitamin C
• Free of soy, lactose, gluten, pesticides, herbicides, GMOs, BSE and recognized as safe by the US FDA. Certified Gluten-free.

Other Ingredients: High Oleic Safflower Oil, Gelatin (bovine), Glycerin, Purified Water, Vitamin E (natural mixed tocopherols from sunflower oil)

Atrantil’s patented combination of natural polyphenols gets rid of your bloating and supports your digestive health. Portions of the gut are intended to contain small amounts of bacteria. If this relatively sterile environment gets overpopulated with bacteria, trouble isn’t far behind. When bacteria start to break down the food you eat, they produce methane—which can create abdominal discomfort and that uncomfortable bloated feeling. Additionally, if you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Atrantil may be the solution you’ve been looking for! 

Atrantil has been clinically tested and proven. For those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) & Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Atrantil was proven to be over 80% effective in two separate clinical trials.

Atrantíl’s three natural ingredients work together to help weaken and remove unwanted bacteria and return your gut to its normal, calm environment. New research shows that the problems start with methane producing bacteria. Left untreated, these out-of-place bacteria feed off the foods you eat and create methane gas that leaves you bloated and uncomfortable. Atrantíl breaks the cycle naturally—and gets you and your digestion back on track.

Atrantíl has three active botanicals—Peppermint Leaf (M. balsamea Willd extract), Quebracho extract, Horse Chestnut (Conker Tree extract) composed in a unique patented molecular combination.

General Dosing: Take two capsules a day, up to three times a day with food. Continue until you feel relief, then consider taking a maintenance dose.

(Current stock has an expiry of Sept/2022, however the supplier has assured us that the product is proven to be effective up to 2-3 years past expiry. Additionally, after we have sold our current supply it may be difficult to get more in for awhile.)

Barberry Root Powder comes from the root and bark of the barberry bush (Berberis vulgaris).

Historically cultivated for its tart berries for culinary use, barberries were traditionally used in pickled dishes, jams, candies, and more. The root itself was used to make antipyretics, tonics, and other natural medicines. Due to its bitter flavor, however; it was typically used to make yellow dyes.

Uses and Dosage:

Native Americans originally taught settlers barberry’s value as a medicinal herb. The ancient Egyptians used it in combination with fennel seed to ward off plagues while it was used to treat dysentery in India.

European herbalists have used it to treat gallbladder and liver problems, while healers in Russia used it for inflammation, high blood pressure and abnormal uterine bleeding.

According to a scientific article published in 2019, barberry’s compounds “have a strong impact on human health and can be used as a painkiller, as well as for the relief of fever, diarrhea and vomiting. They are also useful for curing liver and vascular problems and preventing many diseases.”

Barberry is available in capsules, fluid extracts, tinctures and as a topical ointment. The dried roots can also be used in tea, and its extracts are standardized to contain 8 percent to 12 percent alkaloids (berberine).

Currently, there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for barberry.

For children, it should only be used under the supervision of a qualified health care provider, if at all. For adults, it’s traditionally used at a dose of two grams three times daily or an equivalent amount in extract form. 

It’s not recommended for long periods of time (more than a week) without the supervision of your doctor.

Risks, Side Effects and Interactions:

People using normal and appropriate doses of barberry don’t generally report any negative side effects. With high dosages, possible side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, fainting, nosebleeds, low blood pressure, decreased heart rate, and decreased breathing.

Berberine is not recommended for very young children. In infants, it can interfere with liver function and might worsen jaundice.

Pregnant women should not take it because it may cause uterine contractions and trigger miscarriage. Barberry is also not recommended for nursing mothers since the berberine can be passed to the infant this way.

Barberry should never be taken at the same time as cyclosporine. Other drugs it may negatively interact with include medications changed by the liver including lovastatin (Mevacor), clarithromycin (Biaxin), indinavir (Crixivan), sildenafil (Viagra), and triazolam (Halcion).

You should also talk to your health care provider before combining barberry with anticholinergic drugs (drying medications), antihypertensive drugs and antidiabetes drugs, anticoagulant/antiplatelet drugs, sedative medications (CNS depressants), and some cholinergic drugs used for glaucoma, Alzheimer’s disease, and other conditions.

Barberry might decrease the effectiveness of antibiotics in the tetracycline family.

In general, if you take any other prescription medicine, non-prescription medicine or supplements, check with your doctor before taking it. If you have any chronic health issues, such as liver problems or diabetes, check with your doctor before consuming any barberry supplements.

Berberine:

Berberine is a yellow alkaloid found in goldenseal root, barberry bark, Oregon grape root and coptis (goldthread) root. It has been shown to:

• Exert significant beneficial effects on digestive health and the microbiome.
• Improve type 2 diabetes on par or better than conventional drugs including metformin. • Improve blood lipid levels better than statins.
• Lower blood pressure in many subjects as well as any class of anti-hypertensive medication. • Improve liver function and promote anti-obesity effects.
• Produce very encouraging experimental data in a wide range of modern health issues including cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and others.

One of the clearest indicators of how berberine affects the microbiome is its effectiveness as a useful remedy for occasional diarrheas caused by several different types of parasites and infectious organisms. Berberine has also been shown to be effective at fighting harmful microbes, even over conventional antibiotics. It exerts a selective antimicrobial action by targeting a wide range of harmful organisms, yet leaves health-promoting bacterial species such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacter species alone. This is good for the gut.

Wild-Harvested from Peru.

Cat's Claw Bark Powder (uncaria tomentosa) is one of the medicinal herbs from the Amazon rainforest and other South and Central America. This ancient plant enjoys a long history of yielding curative properties for joint disorders, treating viral infections, and improving immune function. Some indigenous tribes of South America even consider cat’s claw a sacred plant with spiritual significance. It was used to eliminate disturbances between the spirit and the body that were thought to be the reason for physical ailments. So, while there are many historical claims and anecdotal evidence to back cat’s claw’s potency, what does scientific information have to say about this rainforest vine? Let’s find out in our detailed cat’s claw review.

What is Cat’s Claw? The botanical name for cat’s claw is Uncaria. Uncaria has two prominent species, uncaria tomentosa and uncaria guianensis. Both herbs have different chemical structures with varying active compounds. And thus, they present different medicinal and therapeutic effects. Of the two, cat’s claw (uncaria tomentosa) is the better-researched species and seems to offer more health benefits than uncaria guianensis. The plant gets its name as its thorns resemble a cat’s claws. The outer bark of the plant has long fissures, whereas the inner bark has fibers. Inside, there is a watery sap possessing an astringent taste. The plant’s bark and root are where its therapeutic effects come from, and it gets processed into commercial preparations.

Main compounds  Cat’s claw contains several compounds, including the following: Alkaloids are naturally occurring constituents that have excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Proanthocyanidins are polyphenols that may help fight against cancer and possess anti-aging potential. H2 is another polyphenol that seems to work on reducing brain plaque, as seen in animal models. Glycosides are organic compounds of plant origins that possess anticancer and antitumor properties along with other biological effects. Tannins are phenolic compounds that may prevent diseases by providing antimicrobial and antioxidant benefits. Flavonoids are phytonutrients that help regulate cellular activity and fight off free radicals, causing oxidative stress on the body.

How Does Cat’s Claw Extract Work In The Brain? Cat’s claw may boost memory, learning, and mood. It offers a few different mechanisms that can help promote cognitive skills and improve overall brain health.

Mechanisms of Action Researchers claim that Uncaria Tomentosa increases brain-derived neurotrophic factor while controlling N-methyl-D-aspartate activity and shielding DNA content through its inflammation-fighting effects. Now, those are a lot of acronyms in one sentence, so let’s look at what they mean first. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor that promotes the survival of nerve cells by assisting their growth, maturation, and maintenance. N-methyl-D-aspartate is an amino acid. Overstimulation of NMDA receptors in the brain is involved in various mental health illnesses involving memory deficits like Alzheimer’s disease. Administering cat’s claw root for its brain-boosting effects shows that oral supplementation can potentially improve short-term memory, verbal, recall, and executive functions.

Works As Neuroprotectant Cat’s claw extracts also offer neuroprotective properties as it contains antioxidants to protect the brain from free radicals that may otherwise cause cell death. Because it can preserve DNA integrity and inhibit plaque formation in the brain, it goes a long way to care for brain health. What Are The Health Benefits of Cat’s Claw? Cat’s claw contains the right blend of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Also, some research indicates that this healing root has immune-modulating mechanisms that can revive and bolster an impaired immune system.

Based on these promising health benefits, cat’s claw extracts can do the following:

Improves Memory and Cognitive Performance Cat’s claw is considered a nootropic as it creates a synergy in the brain that reduces inflammation, promotes antioxidant activity, and corrects damage caused by free radicals. Together, these processes can lower the incidence of depression while bolstering focus, cognition, and information processing. Various clinical trials on cat’s claw extracts and the brain show it to cause an inhibition of beta-amyloid plaque formation. It dissolves these plaques that would otherwise affect memory.

Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory (Neuroprotection) Cat’s claw possesses antioxidants and the ability to fight inflammation. The antioxidants work to ward off damage caused by free radicals, while inflammation can cause depression and dementia. In a neuroprotective capacity, the bark may help reduce the formation of plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Plus, its ability to repair DNA in the brain makes it a stellar neuroprotective agent. It can help reduce inflammation in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis pain and stiffness, and these effects extend to the brain and neural network.

Boosts The Immune System Cat’s claw may also stimulate the immune system as part of its health benefits. Animal and human studies seem to validate this, with one study indicating an increase in white blood cell count. White blood cells are part of the body’s immune system, helping the body fight infections and other diseases. When study participants received 700 mg of cat’s claw daily for two months before being vaccinated for pneumonia, there was an increase in their white blood cell count. Another study with animal models investigating how cat’s claw may stimulate the immune system presented similar findings after subjects received cat’s claw extract for six weeks.

Relieves Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis This South American vine has perhaps received the most significant attention in treating health issues like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Given its history of treating inflammatory diseases by the tribal people of South America, the practice carried over and is considered a non-pharmacological way of improving rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis symptoms. A few preliminary studies have investigated the effects of using cat’s claw for both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Studies have looked at one of its compounds called pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid that possesses the potential to fight inflammation. For osteoarthritis, taking a daily dose of 100 mg for four weeks showed better pain relief and overall symptom improvement than the people taking a placebo. For rheumatoid arthritis, researchers administered 20 mg supplements 3 times a day for 24 weeks. Findings showed people taking cat’s claw extract to present a more significant reduction in pain than their placebo counterparts.

Helps With Treatment of Lyme Disease Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that spreads through the bite of black-legged ticks. The condition triggers an initial rash that can then cause other varying symptoms of the disorder. Considered a possible treatment for the infection, a supplement with cat’s claw may help with symptom management of Lyme disease. One study recruited people with a confirmed diagnosis and a history of the infection for 10 years with progressive symptom deterioration. Participants received cat’s claw supplementation while reducing or discontinuing other pharmaceutical use. At the end of the 26-week trial period, people using the extract reported greater improvements in managing symptoms such as joint and muscle pain, headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and digestive distress.

Has Anti Cancer Properties Preliminary test-tube studies suggest that the pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid content in uncaria tomentosa may have some anti-tumor potential. Research indicates that pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid may be toxic to specific types of cancer cells. One earlier, in vivo study suggested that cat’s claw may prevent the growth of cancerous cells in breast cancer patients by having an anti-mutagenic and anti-proliferative effect on cancerous cells. Another study investigated the effects of the bark on leukemia. Four of the alkaloids found in this healing vine demonstrated the ability to restrict leukemia cell proliferation. Two of the alkaloids, namely uncarine F and pteropodine, were found most effective in inhibiting leukemia cell growth. They also induced affected cells to sustain apoptosis or programmed cell death. Another more recent study indicated that using cat’s claw extract for people with advanced cancer may help their quality of life and lower cancer-related fatigue (CRF). On another note, taking cat’s claw may also help with DNA repair often caused by chemotherapy damage and cancer drugs. One earlier 2001 study examined the effects of cat’s claw extract on people receiving chemotherapy treatment. Uncaria Tomentosa extract was administered for 8 weeks, showing a reduction in DNA damage to affected cells. Also, people receiving cat’s claw supplements exhibited an increase in white blood cell count generation. This finding is significant as chemotherapy typically lowers white blood cell counts, increasing the risk of infection. All this information shows promising evidence regarding cancer treatment, but they are still few and far between. More research is still needed to use safely and effectively use the bark for treating cancer.

Lowers Blood Pressure Cat’s claw is considered a treatment for lowering blood pressure in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Another variety of cat’s claw called Uncaria Rhynchophylla prevents platelet aggregation and blood clotting. With a mechanism similar to blood thinners, it can help lower blood pressure and improve circulation. This supplement may also prevent plaque and arterial blood clot formation. Alkaloids are known as hirsutines in cat’s claw, act as calcium channel blockers, blocking calcium from permeating the walls of the heart and blood vessels. The same can also widen and relax blood vessels, allowing this activity to promote blood flow healthily.

How To Take Cat’s Claw Traditional uses of cat’s claw included boiling the root or bark for an hour or so and drinking it up as a concoction. To overcome the intense flavor, you have the option of mixing in some honey to make it more palatable.

Dosage: There are no recommended dosage guidelines for using cat’s claw, and any recommendations typically come from the manufacturer. One of our 700mg vegcaps daily should be a reasonable dose based on research results.

How long does it take for Cat’s Claw to work? Cat’s claw is one of those nootropics that take a bit of time to show effects. Some studies indicate it takes up to eight weeks for cat’s claw to yield its full effects. Some others show that managing symptoms of conditions like knee pain, for instance, may provide relief within a week of starting supplementation. What Are The Side Effects of Cat’s Claw? Many of the evidence gathered for the benefits of cat’s claw comes from test-tube studies, small-scale clinical trials or case reports, and research is done on animals. In this sense, a lot more information is still required to treat severe health problems. However, most of the published clinical trials have ranged from four weeks to a year-long with significantly few side effects. Evidence shows the most common complaints to be symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, or an upset stomach. This probably happens because cat’s claw possesses a fair amount of tannins and only occurs when the extract is consumed in quantities exceeding the recommended dosage amounts. People with certain health conditions should not use cat’s claw supplements. This includes anyone with an autoimmune disease, blood pressure concerns, stomach ulcers, leukemia, or kidney problems. The herb can slow blood clotting, so people with bleeding disorders or others using anticoagulants should not take a cat’s claw supplement. Anyone scheduled for surgery should also stop taking cat’s claw two weeks before their surgery date. The herb can present drug interactions, so people using certain medications should not use cat’s claw. Common drug interactions include medicines for high blood pressure and immune-modulating drugs. You should also talk to your doctor first if you have any ongoing health condition, illness, or diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease.

Conclusion Cat’s claw is one of the best natural treatments for boosting immunity, fighting infections, treating arthritis, and lowering blood pressure. It is a time-honored remedy with minor side effects unless you have health issues that conflict with its use. After looking at the strengths and limitations of this South American vine, we feel that it has a lot to offer in diverse areas of healing. So, if you don’t have medical conditions that require taking medications, we would recommend it to be a supplement worth trying out.

FAQs Can you take cat’s claw every day? Cat’s claw is safe to take every day as long as you don’t have any of the specific health conditions mentioned above. You should also not take supplements if you are taking certain medications for your conditions.

Is cat’s claw antiviral? Cat’s claw possesses antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial features as it has been used successfully to treat infections like Lyme disease.

Does cat’s claw help you sleep? Cat’s claw is not a sleep aid per se, but it does ward off fatigue. This mechanism can make it easier for you to fall asleep and get a good rest.

Is cat’s claw good for anxiety? Cat’s claw can boost tryptophan levels which increases serotonin and may yield a calming effect.

*Will be shipped in plastic for the remainder of winter to avoid freezing/breaking. 

It is best to have this in your medicine chest before you need it. 

• Research leads one to think it may be one of the best antibiotics.
• It is nontoxic and faster at killing many more pathogens than traditional antibiotics. Bad bacteria, viruses, and fungi are killed within minutes of contact.
• It promotes healing new tissue to injuries and stimulates bone growth.
• Breaks down biofilm that shields germs and kills them quickly.
• Has the proven ability to cause DNA to dedifferentiate or revert back to stem cells preventing scar tissue.
• Might be worth looking into for cancer treatment. Dr. Becker found that it causes cancer cells to revert to normal.
• Use to treat drinking water. Health Canada states: "It is not considered necessary to specify a maximum acceptable concentration for silver in drinking water."

Much contradictory info is stated about which form is best. It is obvious that some vendors of colloidal silver are giving misleading info. Only the best will do so we did a lot of research. What we found from unbiased researchers was that particle size (smaller is better) and purity are the most important factors. Ours is 15 ppm and approximately 98.6% ions and 1.4% particles. Made with distilled water. Colloidal silver is not expensive to make so don't be fooled by small bottles with high prices. More info

How to Use:

95% Curcuminoid extract with piperine. Curcumin is a yellow pigment present in the spice turmeric that has been associated with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antiviral, and antibacterial activities as indicated by over 6,000 citations. In addition, over one hundred clinical studies have been carried out with curcumin. One of the major problems with curcumin is perceived to be the bioavailability. Absorbability is increased up to 2000 times with piperine added. This is good for the gut.        Pure cucumin extract with nothing added.
  Berberine. & Curcumin Herbal Superstars

This particular blend of Turmeric extract contains about 95% Curcuminoids, which themselves are about 70-80% Curcumin, 15-25% Desmethoxycurcumin, and 2.5-6.5% Bisdemethoxycurcumin. Otherwise, there are no kinds of fillers whatsoever.
This product is very pigmented and may stain some surfaces and fabrics-- in fact, turmeric is used as a fabric dye in some countries. Please use care when opening. Should you need to wash out a stain, acting quickly is important. Pre-treating the garment or surface with a white vinegar solution or baking soda is recommended. 

CURCUMIN SIDE EFFECTS
As long as the suggested serving size and daily values are adhered to, there should be no adverse side effects experienced by anyone interested in taking this supplement. Those that have gastrointestinal disorders or otherwise sensitive stomachs may experience a bit of stomach upset when first introducing Curcumin into their system, but this is not unexpected. 
Those that have a ginger allergy should speak with a medical professional before taking this supplement, as the two are closely related. Anyone that is on any medication that attempts to treat high blood pressure or anyone with erratic blood sugar levels should exercise extreme caution before attempting to use this supplement. Pregnant women and those that have blood-clotting problems or are on blood thinners should avoid this supplement altogether, as it may have an adverse reaction with the medication you are taking.

TIPS
Curcumin has a deep, yellow-orange color and a spicy taste. While some sources recommend that it be taken on an empty stomach, Curcumin is absorbed best when it has been cooked with oil, such as olive or coconut, or even butter. Its spiciness and vague ginger-like flavor make it a great seasoning for many dishes, especially basic ones such as white rice or other East Asian delicacies. It even works well when dissolved into hot tea as a flavoring.
This powder is best absorbed in a fatty solution. If cooking is out of the question or you just want to try something new, there is one drink that has a fat content that is just right for bringing out the true flavor and effectiveness of Curcumin, especially if taking the maximum daily serving level. This liquid is hot coconut milk. By mixing Curcumin in with coconut milk, this allows it to be absorbed easily by the body, and it also provides a delicious alternative to water. It goes well when taken with especially fatty meals.

A liquid-concentrate, prehistoric, trace mineral and organic acid complex harvested and manufactured in the USA.

RESTORE and INVIGORATE YOUR HEALTH with Fulvic Minerals.

Fulvic acid is a result of the microbial breakdown of organic matter in soils, known as humus. Humus contains humic acid. Within humic acid, a sub-set of smaller molecules develop known as the fulvic fraction.

Because of its many nutritional components and anti-oxidant and electrolytic power, ounce for ounce Fulvic Mineral Complex has more instant cellular revitalizing, replenishing, restorative, therapeutic, healing and nourishing characteristics than other nutrients . The electrolytic value has also been shown to dramatically increase permeability of bio-membranes, which means that it can sensitize cell membranes for better absorption or assimilation of other nutrients in its presence.

Benefits of Bio-Electrically Charged Fulvic/Humic Minerals may include:

  • Stimulate metabolism
  • Give positive effect on RNA & DNA
  • Increase metabolism of proteins

“If we can create a more suitable intestinal environment for more beneficial bacteria, and repopulate the gut with colonizing probiotics that will rebuild a healthy microbiome, this is a great step towards digestive health and self-sufficiency without taking lifelong probiotics.” Excerpt From: Douillard, John. “Eat Wheat: A Scientific and Clinically-Proven Approach to Safely Bringing Wheat and Dairy Back Into Your Diet."

The following is a 2-step comprehensive plan for restoring gut health:
1. Support intestinal mucus membranes by bringing your elimination back into balance with this soluble-fiber tea made from a slippery elm, licorice root, and marshmallow root mixture to create the best possible environment for healthy microbes to thrive.
2. Introduce healthy, colonizing probiotics (Gutpro/MegaSpore) for a few months—instead of the rest of your life with transient probiotics—to help establish new beneficial, permanent bacterial residents to proliferate in your gut and enhance your health and digestion.
 
Directions:
1. Soak 3 or 4 tablespoons of the pre-mixed herbs in 2 quarts of water overnight.  (Soaking overnight is not mandatory, but it gives you a stronger decoction.)
3. Boil the mixture down to 1/2 quart in the morning.
4. Strain the mixture through a metal strainer, using a large spoon to push it through.
5. Save the liquid and discard the herbs. (This should make 2 cups).
6. Take 1 tablespoon of the liquid every 2 hours on an empty stomach for 1 month, and sometimes for 2 months if needed.

 
Note: If there is an overgrowth of undesirable bacteria in the small and large intestines, There is clinical success adding a beneficial yeast called Saccharomyces Boulardii, which has been shown to knock out undesirable yeast and bacteria in the digestive tract.

Lugol's Iodine 2% and 5% Solution

The thyroid requires iodide and gets little benefit from iodine alone. Every cell in the body needs iodine or iodide. 

Calculating Number of mg's of Iodine and Iodide per Drop of Lugol's Solution:
2%:
Each drop (= 1/20ml) is approximately1.0 mg of iodine and 2.0 mg of potassium iodide. The Iodide portion of Potassium Iodide is about 1.5 mg plus 1 mg iodine = 2.5 mg.
5%: Each drop (= 1/20ml) is approximately 2.5 mg of iodine and 5.0 mg of potassium iodide. The Iodide portion of Potassium Iodide is about 3.75 mg plus 2.5 mg iodine = 6.25 mg.
Recommended dose: 5 drops 2% or 2 drops 5% or 12.5mg daily. Which is based on the Japanese diet, coming from mostly seaweed.

Made from premium ingredients; the iodine used is derived from mined crystals from 320 million year old natural brine deposits two miles beneath the earth's surface in Western USA (one of the few places in the world where such deposits exist). Not made from shellfish. The water used is distilled, pure, New Hampshire spring water. 

Approximately 2050 drops per 4 oz. Store at room temperature out of direct sunlight. Does not expire. No need to refrigerate. To use as a water purifier, add 3-6 drops per liter of water.

• Might Improve Sleep
• Most absorbable form of magnesium
• No Taste
Magnesium L-Threonate is a modern breakthrough mineral that has strong evidence of supporting better brain health & cognitive functions. It’s the only magnesium compound that studies have shown to effectively increase the brain’s magnesium levels, which leads to improved memory and cognitive functions. Magnesium is a vital mineral present in the human body that is responsible for the well-being of the brain and the nervous system. The average content of magnesium in the body is 25gm, and it is the component of bones, teeth and nerve formation, cell division and the building blocks of DNA. It is believed that magnesium is one of the biggest mineral deficiencies in the modern world, which is worrying because magnesium is involved in over 300 enzymatic actions in the body. Deficiency of magnesium can lead to anxiety, fatigue, stress, and neurological problems such as seizure, slow reflexes and motor nerves, reduced cognitive abilities, and mental fog. Magnesium also contributes to electrolyte balance, protein synthesis, and yielding energy metabolism which is a vital mechanism of the body to be fit. So the presence of a balanced amount of magnesium is essential for the daily function of the body. Magnesium intake in a standard balanced diet or supplements is lower and complex to absorb, rendering the benefits to be hardly noticeable and decreasing it to a level of severe deficiency that eventually cause mental and nerve problems.

Suggested dose is from 1g to 2g once or twice a day. Best to take with food.

Microbiome Labs - MegaMucosa

MegaMucosa is the first complete mucosal support supplement of its kind, formulated to support a healthy mucosal barrier. MegaMucosa also contains dairy-free immunoglobulins clinically shown to support a healthy immune system in the mucosa and a state-of-the-art flavobiotic shown to support microbial diversity and short-chain fatty acid production.

The mucosal system is a very important part of the human immune system. The mucosal system contains 150 times more surface area than skin, which makes it as essential element of the immune system that supports healthy immune function.

Ingredients: Immunoglobulins - ImmuoLin is a dairy-free immunoglobulin concentrate that supports healthy digestion, detoxification, and intestinal barrier function.

Amino Acids - There are four key amino acids that play an important role in the production of intestinal mucosa include: L-proline, L-serine, L-cysteine, and L-threonine. These four amino acids have been shown to support mucin2 production and maintain mucin synthesis in the colon, resulting in a thick and healthy mucosal barrier.

Citrus Polyphenols MicrobiomeX® is a citrus extract with naturally occurring polyphenols that supports digestive health and healthy gut barrier function. A clinical study using 500mg of citrus fruit extract found a significant increase in short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) composition, suggesting that citrus polyphenols may help modulate the microbial composition in the gut.

Microbiome Labs - MegaPre

MegaPre™ is the first Precision Prebiotic™ supplement made up of clinically tested, non-digestible oligosaccharides that can increase microbial diversity and selectively feed beneficial bacteria like Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, and Bifidobacteria. MegaPre™ REINFORCES the beneficial microbial changes created by MegaSporeBiotic™ to promote a strong and diverse microbiome.

Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that feed the bacteria living in your gut. Keystone bacteria like bacterium Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, Akkermansia muciniphila, and Bifidobacteria are very important for human health, but their populations can be easily diminished by stress, diet, glyphosate, and other factors. A. muciniphila plays an important role in metabolism and has been shown to support fat loss along with a healthy diet and exercise. F. Prausnitzii can increase the production of butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid that maintains healthy intestinal cells. Bifidobacteria Bifidobacteria can also increase butyrate production and promote lean body mass.

MegaPre™ contains a proprietary blend of functional fibers that specifically feed these keystone bacteria. This unique blend is made up of clinically-tested-and-published, non-digestible oligosaccharides, derived from non-GMO green and gold kiwi fruit, non-GMO corn cob, and rBST-free cow’s milk. 

Dosing Instructions: Start with ½ scoop daily for one week, then increase to 1 scoop daily with or without food, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Mix into 16 oz of cold water or liquid of your choice.

Nattokinase is a proteolytic enzyme that naturally occurs in natto. It is a traditional fermented soybean dish and a well-known staple food in Japan. Natto is fairly easy to make since it only requires water, straw and soybeans. The straw that has the bacterium called bacillus subtilis natto will be mixed with the freshly steamed soybean and water. After that, it will be set for fermentation. During fermentation, natto develops its mild taste and it has a very strong odor like that in the blue cheese.

In the year 1980, Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi was looking for a food that can effectively break up blood clots like those that can cause cardiac arrest and stroke. He discovered that natto can dissolve fibrin which is the type of protein that builds up in blood clots. In his laboratory experiment, he discovered that natto has the ability to completely dissolve fibrin clots after almost about 18 hours. Nattokinase works similarly like blood-thinning agent coumadin. People who have had vascular injury or those people who are in risk of elevated fibrinogen level formation can benefit from the fibrin-digesting effects of nattokinase. It also reduces the thickening of the arteries and helps to heal damaged blood vessels. Nattokinase breaks down fibrin/proteins in mucus and biofilms. It has been used to treat the following: heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, chest pain, deep vein thrombosis, atherosclerosis, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, poor circulation, and peripheral artery disease. It is also used for pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, muscle spasms, infertility, cancer, and beriberi. Non-GMO, made from organic soybeans, Gluten-Free, Lab tested (COA)          

The appropriate dose of Nattokinase depends on age, health and other conditions. Do not exceed 200mg/day unless under the care of a health practitioner. *Do not take nattokinase with other anticoagulant or anti-clotting medication such as aspirin, clopidogrel, diclofenac, ibuprofen, naproxen, dalteparin, enoxapar, heparin, warfarin, and others. *Do not take nattokinase if you are pregnant, breast feeding, have a bleeding or coagula. 

Dosage is 100mg (1/16 tsp) once or twice a day. 50g bag= 500 doses.  5000FU/g.

Wild-Crafted Neem Seed Oil from India. 

This is premium Neem oil. Wild-crafted, cold pressed from carefully stored seeds* of the Neem tree. This oil is perfect for skin care, animal care & herbal use or as an agricultural spray. It is rich in all the liminoids and compounds that have earned Neem oil it's title as A Tree For Solving Global Problems. The oil is guaranteed free of aflatoxin* which is a fungus that can grow on poorly cleaned or stored seeds. It has a strong garlic/nutty aroma - unpleasant to some but loved by those who have experienced it's healing and protective powers.

NOTE-Neem Oil is mainly composed of glycerides of palmitin, stearin, and linolic acids. Neem Oil is similar to Palm Oil. Both oils deposit stearin at low temperatures and especially after they solidify. This process is repeated with each cycle of freezing and thawing. Neem Oil has a high wax content and therefore clouds at 16 C (60.8 F) and tends to solidify at 12 C (53.6 F). At temperatures below 5 C (41 F), Neem Oil is solid and on thawing will deposit stearin. This can be filtered out if needed. It is also normal to find creamy globules of fatty acid deposits in Neem Oil stored at room temperature. These will melt on thawing.

This Neem Oil is independently verified to be free of any pesticides or harmful levels of any metals.

Joy of the Mountains Oregano Oil

Oregano oil is well documented as a potent germ killing compound that can be used to naturally enhance immune support in times of need. Its active compound is called carvacrol. Research shows oregano oil to be effective against all Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria tested. It works by disrupting the cell membrane of the bacteria.

When a bacterial cell comes in contact with carvacrol its cell membrane is significantly altered. This is like knocking out the deflector screen of the Starship Enterprise. Once the cell membrane has been damaged, (i.e., the shield has been lowered), then an influx of various compounds like calcium can readily kill the bacteria.

Unlike medical antibiotics, oregano oil is not toxic to human cells, nor does it promote an overproduction of Candida albicans (a digestive yeast). Rather, it helps keep Candida in check.

Joy of the Mountains® remains the gold standard in quality, and we refuse to take short-cuts to compete with the numerous low-priced competitors on the market today. Produced by a small family business in the Okanagan region of BC. For fighting colds, flus and numerous other infections, choose an Oil of Oregano your family can depend on.

Herbal Parasite Cleanse (Made here at Real Raw Food)

Cheap and easy.  After years of trying almost everything to get rid of candida I used this formula and after 30 days it was gone, so i thought others would appreciate it.  Each package contains enough for a 30 day treatment.

Dosage is 2 capsules in the morning and 2 more capsules 12 hours later. Take it at least 30 minutes before meals. This dosage is for adults and not recommended for small children or pregnant or nursing women. No diet change is needed.

To treat a 30 pound child:  open the capsule and measure out 1/2 of the loose powder; put this into a spoon full of honey, jelly or applesauce and give to the child. It can also be mixed into liquid. Give the other half 8-12 hours later.

For a 60 pound child: give 1 capsule twice per day.

For a 90 pound child (you will need to order 2 bottles): give 1 capsule 3 times per day

 If your child is over 12 years old and 100 pounds or more – he or she may safely take Para-Purge as adults.

 We would like to start a testimonial page so everyone is welcome to email their experience after a 30 day course. A coffee enema  every day will also help. Parasite info Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management. may be used as a tea in enemas or colemas.

Modern medicine and chemicals used to treat worms are formulated to rid the body of only one type of parasite at a time. Parasites easily migrate to a different part of the body that’s not being treated.  Herbal treatments work holistically. 

HERBAL REMEDIES FOR PARASITE REMOVAL
There are two schools of thought on herbal parasite removal.  This first is very strong doses over a short period of time (seven days).  This will destroy parasites, But it is also traumatic for the body and it misses many larvae and eggs in the process.  These escapees will just grow, hatch and re-infect you.  The second school of thought is what Para-Purge is based on.  We have found that a milder dose of parasite killing herbs over a longer period of time is the most effective way to rid your entire body of parasites and their toxins.  Your body does not go into shock - and all parasites, larvae and eggs are removed over a thirty day period.  Most parasites are destroyed within the first week of treatment, however, the remaining larvae and eggs are removed in the next twenty-three days.  Parasites will try to migrate to any part of the body that is not being treated so they can stay with you - their host.  This formula treats the entire body so there is no escape.

“Make no mistake about it, parasites are the most toxic agents in the human body."
The ingredients are almost the same as Humaworm which has also given great results to many people.

For example, a minimal dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what feels right for you.

How to take: For best absorption, we recommend taking your probiotic with a meal or a spoonful of organic fat, like butter, ghee, emu oil or coconut oil.

Great value for your money

Many people see the $125 price tag of the Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic and question the cost. But please keep in mind, because Smidge® is ultra premium, ultra clean and therefore, ultra concentrated, you only need a teeny, tiny amount per serving; and the bottle will last you a long time — roughly eight to 12 months, depending on dosage. When you consider the quality ingredients we use in our special formula as well as the dosing mentioned above, you will find that Smidge® is actually super cost-effective: At the standard dose, a one-month supply costs under $10. This is less than most store-bought probiotics and less than half the price of the mass produced "premium" brands.

Natural health practitioners are beginning to understand how important gut ecology is for health. The research on the microbiome is astounding – and we’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg.

One thing we’re learning about probiotics is that not all strains are beneficial for everyone. People struggling with particular sensitivities can find that some probiotics bring more bad than good. Over the years, we’ve gathered feedback from practitioners, parents and people who are using a diet designed for GAPS, SIBO, Body Ecology, Autism/PDD-NOS, PANDA/PANS, Paleo, AIP, Ketogenic, gluten-free, soy-free or casein-free.

Based on what we’ve learned from these different groups, we developed a unique probiotic formula.

If you’re a practitioner looking for a probiotic that you can confidently recommend to clients who are working within these parameters, GutPro® Probiotic Powder is for you, as it avoids what we like to call probiotic “landmines”.*

Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic:

  • Gives you the diverse benefits of a synergistic blend of eight proven strains. 
  • Avoids the strains that can sometimes cause problems.
  • Gives you just probiotics – nothing more. No prebiotics or fillers. No allergens. No hidden ingredients that can undermine the good you’re trying to achieve with a probiotic.
  •  

We’ve had customers who have tried a dozen – sometimes as many as 20 – different probiotic formulas. And after years of frustration and despair, they’ve told us that Smidge® was the one that finally worked for them.

Here’s why . . .

 Does not contain strains known to contribute to d-lactate acidosis

Lactobacillus acidophilus can work wonders in the gut by producing lactic acid. But for some of us, this can become a problem.

Lactate is a derivative of the lactic acid this strain produces. It comes in two isomeric forms, d-lactate and l-lactate.  Most of us have the capacity to metabolize both forms to some extent and turn it into pyruvic acid. 

But for various reasons, some people can’t metabolize d-lactate effectively enough to keep up with the d-lactate produced by gut bacteria. As a result, the d-lactate can build up in your body and cause d-lactate acidosis.

If this has been an issue for you, you’ll love Smidge® Probiotic Powder. We’ve kept any probiotic strains associated with d-lactate acidosis out of our Smidge® formula.

Yes, we do include strains like Lactobacillus plantarum which can produce d-lactate under certain conditions. But here’s the thing . . .

This strain primarily produces l-lactate.  L. plantarum only produce d-lactate under certain conditions. Better yet, L. plantarum may even help with acidosis by helping the body maintain a lactate equilibrium. And unlike L. acidophilus, L. plantarum is transient. It doesn’t take up residence in your gut and shift the ecosystem that dramatically.

Because of the powerful health benefits associated with this strains, we decided to keep it in the formula. Based on our research and years of customer satisfaction, we’re confident it does not contribute to d-lactate acidosis. 

Smidge® Powder can keep your body’s d-lactate in balance. But that’s not the only way this formula is designed for your clients… 

No probiotics linked to histamine production

Many people have trouble with probiotics linked to histamine production like L. casei. Histamines are chemicals produced by the immune system that can trigger an immune response.

So we’ve made sure that the strains included in this formula are either histamine-neutral or histamine-degrading.

That means you won’t have to worry about increasing your exposure to histamines when you take this probiotic formula.

That’s not the only irritant we’ve kept out of this formula… 

No spore-producing bacteria or streptococcus thermophilus

For people concerned about spore-producing Bacillus bacteria or Streptococcus thermophilus (e.g. soil strains), we’ve made sure to keep these strains out as well.

While the research is still ongoing about the impact these strains have on our systems, we believe that quite often, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. We decided to play it safe and keep this formula simple and easy on the most sensitive bodies.

Of course, it’s not just the probiotic strains you need to worry about.  Most probiotics supplements are only 10% to 20% probiotics and 80% to 90% something else.

Smidge’s custom probiotic powder is just probiotics – Nothing else!

  • There are no excipients or fillers like silica or magnesium stearate.
  • Nor are there any prebiotics like inulin or FOS. 
  •  

And, to make sure that this formula works for everyone – it’s free of common allergens! Every strain we use is grown on a dairy-free, soy-free, non-GMO vegetarian culture.

It does not contain milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, wheat/gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, yeast, corn or soy. 

8 clinically-proven, beneficial strains

Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic gives you a super team of eight clinically-proven probiotic bacteria* . . . 

Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus salivarius, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium lactis.

While we believe that no single strain in particular is the magic bullet for specific ailments and conditions – as strains should work together as they do in a healthy digestive system and the idea is to heal the overall gut first – the research on these eight strains is extensive… the potential health benefits enormous.*

All of these probiotic strains seem to play a role when it comes to comfortable, healthy digestion.* 

For example . . . 

  • No less than four clinical trials have shown that L. plantarum helps support comfortable digestion – helping to minimize gas, bloating, and abdominal pain.*
  • One of the first bacteria to colonize our bodies at birth, B. longum has been associated with helping to digest milk and other challenging foods. *
  • Bifidobacterium breve has been shown in a few clinical trials involving pre-term babies that this special bacteria works especially well in helping to establish a healthy colony of bacteria in the gut. *
  • Bifidobacterium lactis shows exciting promise in lab research to interfere with the body’s reaction to certain toxins from wheat.* 
  • And a recent randomized placebo-controlled study also showed that B. bifidum can help with stress-related diarrhea.*
  •  

These probiotics keep your immune system strong:

  • A 2015 clinical study published in the British Journal of Nutrition showed B. bifidum helped  academically stressed college students make it through the winter semester. The students who took B. bifidum had much fewer absences than the students who didn’t take the probiotic. *  
  •  

They regulate your immune system for a balanced immune response:

  • One of the most common probiotics, L. plantarum, seems to help regulate your immune response, reducing inflammation in the body.* Not only does L. plantarum stimulate the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines like IL-10, it also seems to stimulate the production of regulatory T-cells.*
  • Several clinical trials on both adults and children indicate that l. salivarius seems to help regulate the immune system and – as a result- support healthy skin.*

They keep inflammation in check:

  • Clinical research published in May, 2016 Journal of Rheumatic Diseases suggests that  B. bifidum can help you maintain comfortable joint movement by helping your body manage inflammation.*
  • Preliminary research on mice indicates that L. gasseri may inhibit inflammation signaling at the genetic level!*

Some help keep your mood buoyant and your brain sharp:

  • Preliminary studies indicate that L. plantarum may help you strengthen your memory, concentration and improve your mood.*  
  • And research suggests B. infantis regulates the production of tryptophan which is the precursor for serotonin.* Serotonin is the neurotransmitter associated with a sense of satisfaction and happiness.  

They may even help keep your teeth healthy and strong:

  • L. salivarius seems to help keep the microbial population in your mouth healthy.* 

 

Help your clients feel great with Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic and a real foods diet.

As you well know from your practice, probiotics can’t work in a vacuum. They only amplify the healthy changes you’re helping your clients make to their diet and lifestyle. A junk food diet can’t be overcome with even the best probiotic formulation.

But when people invest time and energy into making healthy changes in their lives, this careful probiotic formulation helps them make the most of it.

By including this formula in the regimen, you can help your clients see the full benefits of making these changes. And you’ll never have to worry about undermining all this hard work with the wrong probiotic strains.

Finally, because it’s a concentrated mix of pure probiotics, a little goes a long way. Many of our customers take only 1/64 of a teaspoon each day (the “drop” on our spoon set).  You can work with your clients to calibrate it exactly to what they need.

What to expect when starting Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic

Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic is designed for comfort. We’ve eliminated the potential problems associated with other probiotic formulas.

Nonetheless, some people still experience a little discomfort in the initial weeks of starting with Smidge®. Like with all probiotics, as you rebalance your internal ecosystem, some of the bacteria that are pushed out may not leave gracefully.

As these unwanted bacteria “die off,” they can cause mild dizziness, nausea or headaches. This is a typical response to starting with probiotics.

While this kind of discomfort is normal, it shouldn’t be experienced over the long term. Within a few weeks, once a healthy microbial community is established and the body has cleaned out much of the toxins, these discomforts should end.

If this initial discomfort is too much, we suggest you advise your clients to decrease the amount of powder taken. And then slowly increase the amount. Some of our customers start with a tiny bit, or ⅛ of the “drop” on our spoon set (the “drop” is 1/64 of a teaspoon)! Even at this small amount, your clients will receive billions of well balanced CFUs. 

Be assured that with Smidge®, we’ve removed the strains and other ingredients that can cause long-term problems.

Storage

Please keep the probiotics refrigerated and always capped for long-term storage. Do not remove the moisture packet inside the bottle.  Make sure the spoons are very clean and dry before using them with the powder for best results. 

The freeze dried organisms have undergone independent laboratory analysis for verification of stated potency (in both it’s raw and finished form).  The probiotic was tested in a variety of conditions and temperatures and is both highly stable and potent in the time it takes to reach it’s destination and for two years from the date of it’s production.

As an extra measure, we routinely include a higher number of CFU’s (organisms) in each bottle than is stated on the label to account for any potential and minimal degradation that might occur during shipping delays in extreme heat. 

Note: Freeze-dried organisms behave very differently than "live cultures" and are in a state of suspended animation.  This means the organisms are very stable and inactive until they come in contact with moisture.  Live cultures would perish quickly during shipping, freeze-dried bacteria do not. 

The probiotic powders are sealed in a non-permeable amber glass bottle to protect the organisms against moisture during shipping and for extended use and storage.  During our regular 2 day expedited shipping, the product has shown no decline in activity even after the product arrived warm and sometimes, even hot.  

What to do with the product once it arrives?  Simply store the bottle in the refrigerator.. Once the bottle has been opened, do not remove the moisture pillow inside in the bottle as this will help to protect the strains from moisture - which can compromise the probiotic.   

Do be mindful to replace the cap and return the product to the refrigerator after each dose.   The probiotic can remain at full potency for up to two weeks in room temperature, unrefrigerated, but should be kept cold and dry for long term storage and to ensure full potency throughout it's use.

Here’s what one of our many happy customers has to say:

Best Probiotics

“I have tried more than a few brands and I always come back to Smidge®. The best analogy I can think of is that it's like comparing $400 shoes to $10 shoes. There is just a world of difference in comfort and quality. With a child with many food intolerances and allergies and another with PDD-NOS, it really helps me that this has no fillers and everyone in the family can take it together.”     

- Valerie K.

Last but not least, according to the practitioners  

“As a practitioner I have tried many probiotic supplements with my clients over the years but was always concerned about additives and fillers as well as the streptococcus and acidophilus strains which never seemed to agree with my more sensitive ASD/GAPS clients. So imagine my delight when I first came across Smidge® and my wish had come true – clean, pure, d-lactate free, no unnecessary strains, no fillers and a concentrated formula which can be used by the whole family and is the most cost effective probiotic I’ve been able to find. Many happy clients later I can highly recommend it!

- Kitsa Yanniotis

Certified GAPS Practitioner, Certified Body Ecologist, Creator Kitsa’s Kitchen

“We use Smidge® as our multi-strain probiotic of choice for the majority of our clients. With extensive clinical evidence we’ve found it to be gentle upon entry for building the beneficial flora in the gut as well as conducive to therapeutic titration.  Bottom line is it works! Even for those with the most sensitive or compromised systems.  And personally, it’s my favorite probiotic to support both my own and my family’s health.”

- Andrea Nakayama

Functional Nutritionist, Replenish PDX

“Smidge® is changing the lives of each and every one of my clients daily. Not all probiotics are the same, quality really matters here. I have researched and used almost every available probiotic with little to no progressive results, until I discovered GutPro®. Taking even one antibiotic can greatly shrink your healthy, beneficial immune system fighting bacteria and give the pathogenic bacteria a chance to proliferate and create a whole host of imbalances. Since using GutPro® I am seeing cases where deep cellular viral, bacterial, allergies, sensitivities, mood and behavior concerns greatly improving and in many cases, resulting in full correction of the imbalance.

As a Naturopath, I use Smidge® myself and have seen amazing health improvements. I would not have the thriving wellness practice I have today without using Smidge® to help facilitate my clients in their healing, rebuilding and repairing process. Thank you Smidge® for creating such a clean, bio available essential healing tool!”

"Until recently, Vitamin E was thought to be composed of several TOCOPHEROLS, the most powerful form of which is ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL. Vitamin E is of great nutritional importance. 
All body tissues, especially the adrenal and pituitary glands, have high concentrates of Vitamin E, but storage is mainly in the muscles, fatty tissues, and liver. Recently, a new class of compounds related to the TOCOPHEROLS has been discovered, and these compounds are called TOCOTRIENOLS. According to a noted expert in the field of Vitamin E research, ALPHA-TOCOTRIENOL is 40-60 times more potent than ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL. At the present time, there are four named TOCOTRIENOLS. An additional 20 unnamed TOCOTRIENOLS have been discovered. By way of example, DELTA-TOCOTRIENOL is 200 times more potent than ALPHA-TOCOTRIENOL."

Pregnant women must have adequate Vitamin E while fetus is forming to avoid narrowing of the body, cleft palate, crowded teeth, barrel chest and even muscular dystrophy. It is absolutely essential to health.

Food is the only way to get vitamins.

Serrapeptase is a powerful fibrinolytic enzyme produced by the silkworm and used to escape its cocoon by dissolving a hole in it. Although it’s classified in the U.S. as a dietary supplement, it’s been used in Europe and Japan for many years as a pharmaceutical. It has the ability to dissolve dead protein material without harming surrounding living tissue, making it effective at eating away at excess fibrin in the body. Serrapeptase eats away scar tissue, dissolves blockages, and decreases inflammation, and has been used with great success for joint, tendon, and ligament injuries or degeneration. Like nattokinase, serrapeptase has also been shown to dissolve blood clots and arterial plaque as well. Highlighted benefits of serrapeptase are: Pain and swelling treatment after injuries Treatment of pain and inflammation due to Carpel Tunnel Pain treatment, reduction of size, and even dissolving of fibroids Reduction of ear, nose, and throat inflammation Dissolving of scar tissue, including endometriosis Dissolving of blood clots and arterial plaque By now you can see the important role fibrinolytic enzymes play in keeping inflammation at bay, breaking down excess fibrin (scar tissue), modulating the immune system, and cleansing the blood, making them true superhero enzymes. After taking into consideration the numerous side effects of prescription medications it makes total sense why people choose to use nattokinase and serrapeptase as alternative treatments when it comes to inflammatory conditions and heart health.

When using the powder, try placing the powder directly on your tongue. Then drink a glass of water, swishing the water around in your mouth to help flush the enzymes, then swallow. If you put the powder into a glass of water, the powder will likely bead up and some may stick to the side of the glass while drinking. The powder does not have a bad taste. The effectiveness of the product is the same regardless of how the product is taken as long as the stomach is empty and you allow 1 hour or more before your next meal.

Serrapeptase powder 200,000 u/g, no additives. Dosage is 1 gram or 1/4 teaspoon on empty stomach.
Capsules contain 150,000IU serrapeptase.

Lion's Mane mg / Lite Formula 38.5 mg Lion’s mane is a mushroom mainly used in treating neurological disorders. It has positive effects in reducing both anxiety and depression.Medicinal mushrooms demonstrate adaptogenic effects to support healthy physical and emotional response to stressors. Research has demonstrated that Lion’s Mane may help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression after 4 weeks possibly due to its Nerve Growth Factor (NGF)-enhancing action.
L-Tryptophan 38.5 mg Well known for its sedative and sleep inducing qualities, L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid that is a precursor for the hormones serotonin and melatonin. Melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland in response to decreasing light exposure. Tryptophan supports production of melatonin, which regulates circadian rhythms and enhances sleep. Tryptophan also may be useful for treating anxiety, depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Schisandra 32 mg Schisandra exerts sedative and anti-anxiety effects therefore reducing stress and inducing tranquility. It is used to help alleviate tension due to fidgeting, dream-disturbed sleep, heart palpitations and treating insomnia.Schisandra is a tonic for the nervous system and supports resistance to physical and emotional stress. It has been studied since the 1950’s on athletes and soldiers in Russia. Schisandra decreases fatigue and promotes improved mental performance and increased stamina and recovery.

It is generally suggested that a person take about 1000mg (1/4 tsp) daily. The general guideline provided by the FDA cautions against taking more than 60mg per day, but this in itself seems to be an exaggerated low. It is possible that this may not be enough to see the true healing powers of Vitamin C. According to one survey, between 5 and 17% of adults have some kind of Vitamin C deficiency.

Cellulose, sugar, xylitol, sucrose, dextrose, evaporated cane juice, organic sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup and other forms of sugar, weather synthetic or cane sugar, work the same way in the body. They all block the absorption of vitamin C as they share the same transport paths. When these pathways are filled with sugar, the vitamin C can not travel where it needs to go as the road is closed, already filled.

Pure Calcium Ascorbate Powder. Non-GMO

Calcium ascorbate combines calcium and vitamin C in one supplement, each 1,000-milligram supplement (1/4 teaspoon) providing approximately 900 milligrams of vitamin C and 100 milligrams of calcium. The calcium makes the vitamin C less acidic, so it may be less likely to cause gastrointestinal side effects than other types of vitamin C supplements. Vitamin C is a vitamin found in various foods and sold as a dietary supplement. Deficiency of vitamin C causes scurvy.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient involved in the repair of tissue and the enzymatic production of certain neurotransmitters. It is required for the functioning of several enzymes and is important for immune system function. It also functions as an antioxidant and may be one of the best destroyers of toxins including heavy metals if adequate doses are taken. This product contains approximately 87% Ascorbate and 11% Sodium. The Ascorbate is derived from non-GMO corn fermentation and contains no fillers of any kind.

Micorbiome Labs - MegaQuinone K2-7

MegaQuinone K2-7 is a high-dose, 100% soy-free formulation of naturally sourced vitamin K2 (MK-7) formulated for optimal bone, nerve, and heart health. This formula includes 320 mcg of vitamin K2 with vitamin K1 and chelated minerals for absorption (2 caps/serving). 

Why Vitamin K2?

Given the major health benefits, vitamin K2 is arguably the most important dietary supplement out there, primarily because it can’t be found in sufficient quantities in the average Western diet. In the last 40 years, researchers have realized that vitamin K2 is responsible for supporting vitamin K-dependent proteins (VKDPs), such as osteocalcin and matrix Gla-protein. When fully carboxylated, osteocalcin attracts calcium into the bones and teeth.

Benefits of MegaQuinone K2-7:

  • The only 320 mcg naturally sourced vitamin MK-7 supplement on the market. This is more than 3x our previous K2.
  • Guaranteed stability
  • Solvent-free during production
  • Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free and Non-GMO
  • Vegan, Kosher, and Halal
  • Formulated with chelated minerals for enhanced absorption
  • Published safety studies
  • Supported by multiple new patents  

Dosing Instructions:

Take 2 capsules daily with a meal, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

Pure, Micronized Zeolite Powder manufactured in the USA

Zeolite is a natural volcanic mineral, which works as a detoxifier for heavy metals, radiation, and other toxins. It was formed over millions of years when volcano ash settled on alkaline seawater. This resulted in a chemical reaction and created an extremely strong, negatively charged, cavernous compound. The unique negative charge of zeolite allows it to absorb dangerous toxins like a magnet by locking these toxins within its porous tunnels. Many refer to this as a “cage-like structure,” since once zeolite absorbs a toxin, the dangerous substance is locked within the zeolite structure and cannot be broken free. This means that zeolite safely and gentle carry out of the body any toxins it pick up as it travels through the body.

We start with the cleanest and purest zeolite on Earth, and mine specifically for human consumption. Our zeolite is then intensely washed and prepared to ensure a high level of cation capacity and clean cages. The zeolite is then put through rigorous processing and quality control tests to ensure that quality and safety is always maintained for human consumption. It is at this point that it is thoroughly dried and then MICRONIZED into a powder. Our zeolite has a wide ranging micron size, which allows for full body detox. Among some of the numerous metals zeolite has demonstrated in studies to absorb include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, barium and other toxic chemicals.

The CEC rating measures the ability of the zeolite to absorb toxins and heavy metals. Zeolites with higher ratings have better absorption capabilities.

ZEO Health LTD. CEC rating = 170 - 190 meq / 100 grams
Micron size for All Products*=0-40

Nigella Black Cumin Seeds

Certified Organic from India.

When it comes to versatility and the power of its health benefits, Nigella seeds (also called black cumin) stand above other botanicals.

A Long History of Therapeutic Use; The black seed of nigella sativa (black cumin seed) has been used for over three thousand years for preventing and treating many different diseases. In ancient texts and historical documents black cumin seed is noted for its therapeutic attributes and ability to support the body in its own natural healing processes. Archeological studies report that black cumin seed seeds have been found in several sites from ancient Egypt, including in the tomb of Tutankhamun. It has been revered as a beauty secret since ancient times as Queen Nefertiti, renowned for her complexion, was, a reportedly a devoted black cumin seed user. Ibri Sina, the Persian physician and philosopher, discussed black cumin seed in the text Canon of Medicine, considered a hallmark publication in the history of human medicine and used as the primary medical text throughout Europe until the 17th century. In it he states that black cumin seed has preventive and restorative features as it “stimulates the body’s energy and helps in recovery from fatigue and dispiritedness.”
 
What conditions can black cumin seed help address?

  • Cancer. Black cumin seed has potent anti-oxidant properties and these are thought to be behind the cancer prevention properties demonstrated in animal studies. In vitro and animal studies also show inhibition and reduction of tumor growth in various types of cancer including blood, breast, colon, pancreatic, liver, lung, skin, kidney, prostate and cervix. There are also demonstrated benefits as an adjunctive to chemotherapy in humans—for instance, black cumin seed shows a potential ability to decrease the incidence of side effects in children with brain tumors who are on chemotherapy. Its active component, thymoquinone, sensitizes brain cancer cells to chemotherapy, making treatment more effective.
  • Heart Disease and Diabetes. Black cumin seed favorably affects several parameters related to heart disease riskincluding lowering total and LDL cholesterol, reducing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, reducing plaque formation. It also reduces blood glucose, as well as diabetic-associated complications such as neuropathy.
  • Infections. Black cumin seed is a potent antimicrobial with the ability to fight bacteria, parasites, fungi and even viruses. It has demonstrated activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), the strain of bacteria that is difficult to treat and resistant to antibiotics. Black cumin seed even reduces viral load and improves other markers in patients with hepatitis C.
  • Neurological Conditions. Black cumin seed has been shown in in vitro and animal studies to be protective of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury. Learning and memory is also improved in animals given black cumin seed. Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties are thought to be responsible for this effect.
  • Immune Disorders. Black cumin seed has been shown helpful in autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and rheumatoid arthritis, and also allergic asthma, sinusitis, and eczema. For a deeper dive into the application of black cumin seed for asthma and allergy, evidenced by several human studies, you’ll want to read our recent article by CDP colleagueSezelle Gereau, Functional otolaryngologist: Consider Nigella Sativa for Asthma and Allergy.
  • Pain. Black cumin seed oil, applied topically, is better than moderate dosing of oral acetaminophen (paracetamol) at reducing pain from knee osteoarthritis. Oral black cumin seed oil also has general analgesic effects, according to animal studies.
  • Weight Loss. Supplementation with N. sativa exerts a moderate effect on reduction in body weight, body mass index and waist circumference.

What Form to Take? Seed or Oil? And How Much?
In human clinical trials, dosages of 1-3 grams of black cumin seed powder has been used (orally) for up to 12 months. 2 months is recommended before checking on changes to cholesterol or blood glucose management. Black cumin seed oil is used orally at doses up to 5 mL or 40 mg per kg for up to 8 weeks for therapeutic effects. Topical use, for example for knee osteoarthritis, has included 1 mL applied locally three times per day.

Atrantil is a natural and safe solution proven to get rid of abdominal bloating and discomfort.

Atrantil’s patented combination of natural polyphenols gets rid of your bloating and supports your digestive health. Portions of the gut are intended to contain small amounts of bacteria. If this relatively sterile environment gets overpopulated with bacteria, trouble isn’t far behind. When bacteria start to break down the food you eat, they produce methane—which can create abdominal discomfort and that uncomfortable bloated feeling. Additionally, if you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Atrantil may be the solution you’ve been looking for! 

Atrantil has been clinically tested and proven. For those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) & Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Atrantil was proven to be over 80% effective in two separate clinical trials.

Atrantíl’s three natural ingredients work together to help weaken and remove unwanted bacteria and return your gut to its normal, calm environment. New research shows that the problems start with methane producing bacteria. Left untreated, these out-of-place bacteria feed off the foods you eat and create methane gas that leaves you bloated and uncomfortable. Atrantíl breaks the cycle naturally—and gets you and your digestion back on track.

Atrantíl has three active botanicals—Peppermint Leaf (M. balsamea Willd extract), Quebracho extract, Horse Chestnut (Conker Tree extract) composed in a unique patented molecular combination.

General Dosing: Take two capsules a day, up to three times a day with food. Continue until you feel relief, then consider taking a maintenance dose.

(Current stock has an expiry of Sept/2022, however the supplier has assured us that the product is proven to be effective up to 2-3 years past expiry. Additionally, after we have sold our current supply it may be difficult to get more in for awhile.)

“If we can create a more suitable intestinal environment for more beneficial bacteria, and repopulate the gut with colonizing probiotics that will rebuild a healthy microbiome, this is a great step towards digestive health and self-sufficiency without taking lifelong probiotics.” Excerpt From: Douillard, John. “Eat Wheat: A Scientific and Clinically-Proven Approach to Safely Bringing Wheat and Dairy Back Into Your Diet."

The following is a 2-step comprehensive plan for restoring gut health:
1. Support intestinal mucus membranes by bringing your elimination back into balance with this soluble-fiber tea made from a slippery elm, licorice root, and marshmallow root mixture to create the best possible environment for healthy microbes to thrive.
2. Introduce healthy, colonizing probiotics (Gutpro/MegaSpore) for a few months—instead of the rest of your life with transient probiotics—to help establish new beneficial, permanent bacterial residents to proliferate in your gut and enhance your health and digestion.
 
Directions:
1. Soak 3 or 4 tablespoons of the pre-mixed herbs in 2 quarts of water overnight.  (Soaking overnight is not mandatory, but it gives you a stronger decoction.)
3. Boil the mixture down to 1/2 quart in the morning.
4. Strain the mixture through a metal strainer, using a large spoon to push it through.
5. Save the liquid and discard the herbs. (This should make 2 cups).
6. Take 1 tablespoon of the liquid every 2 hours on an empty stomach for 1 month, and sometimes for 2 months if needed.

 
Note: If there is an overgrowth of undesirable bacteria in the small and large intestines, There is clinical success adding a beneficial yeast called Saccharomyces Boulardii, which has been shown to knock out undesirable yeast and bacteria in the digestive tract.

Herbal Parasite Cleanse (Made here at Real Raw Food)

Cheap and easy.  After years of trying almost everything to get rid of candida I used this formula and after 30 days it was gone, so i thought others would appreciate it.  Each package contains enough for a 30 day treatment.

Dosage is 2 capsules in the morning and 2 more capsules 12 hours later. Take it at least 30 minutes before meals. This dosage is for adults and not recommended for small children or pregnant or nursing women. No diet change is needed.

To treat a 30 pound child:  open the capsule and measure out 1/2 of the loose powder; put this into a spoon full of honey, jelly or applesauce and give to the child. It can also be mixed into liquid. Give the other half 8-12 hours later.

For a 60 pound child: give 1 capsule twice per day.

For a 90 pound child (you will need to order 2 bottles): give 1 capsule 3 times per day

 If your child is over 12 years old and 100 pounds or more – he or she may safely take Para-Purge as adults.

Store any leftover capsules in the freezer for up to 2 years.

Para-purge For CHILDREN is NOT RECOMMENDED for children under the age of 2 or for children under 30 pounds!

 We would like to start a testimonial page so everyone is welcome to email their experience after a 30 day course. A coffee enema  every day will also help. Parasite info Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management. may be used as a tea in enemas or colemas.

Modern medicine and chemicals used to treat worms are formulated to rid the body of only one type of parasite at a time. Parasites easily migrate to a different part of the body that’s not being treated.  Herbal treatments work holistically. 

HERBAL REMEDIES FOR PARASITE REMOVAL
There are two schools of thought on herbal parasite removal.  This first is very strong doses over a short period of time (seven days).  This will destroy parasites, But it is also traumatic for the body and it misses many larvae and eggs in the process.  These escapees will just grow, hatch and re-infect you.  The second school of thought is what Para-Purge is based on.  We have found that a milder dose of parasite killing herbs over a longer period of time is the most effective way to rid your entire body of parasites and their toxins.  Your body does not go into shock - and all parasites, larvae and eggs are removed over a thirty day period.  Most parasites are destroyed within the first week of treatment, however, the remaining larvae and eggs are removed in the next twenty-three days.  Parasites will try to migrate to any part of the body that is not being treated so they can stay with you - their host.  This formula treats the entire body so there is no escape.

“Make no mistake about it, parasites are the most toxic agents in the human body."
The ingredients are almost the same as Humaworm which has also given great results to many people.

Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic (formerly GutPro®) 

*20g powder now comes with measuring spoon.

With this carefully formulated custom probiotic, you can help your most sensitive clients restore their gut ecology.

As many practitioners like you have discovered, some probiotic formulas can trigger reactions. But Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic is a game changer – as it’s created for the “the sensitive of the sensitive” and the “canary in the coal mine.”

Certain strains found in other commercial probiotic formulas that can cause acidosis, histamine and other adverse reactions are not present in Smidge®. This unparalleled, hypoallergenic formula can help “kick start” the digestive system, maximize the absorption of nutrients from a real food diet, and ultimately, support the entire immune system.*

Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic

A potent, condensed and pure probiotic with just the right blend of bacteria…

  • Contains eight clinically-proven strains of human probiotics (L. plantarum, L. gasseri, L. salivarius, B. bifidum, B. breve, B. infantis, B. longum, B. lactis).
  • Gives you 25+ billion CFUs per 1/32 teaspoon (a “smidgen” on our spoon set).
  • Is appropriate for people using diets including GAPS, SIBO, Body Ecology, Autism/PDD-NOS, PANDA/PANS, Paleo, AIP, Ketogenic, gluten-free, soy-free and casein-free (Please note: While GutPro® was designed based on feedback from these specific communities, we do not imply that it’s intended to treat a specific medical condition, nor do we imply it’s “compliant” with a specific diet).
  • Contains only histamine-neutral or histamine-degrading strains of probiotic bacteria.
  • Does not contain strains known to contribute to d-lactate acidosis.
  • Does not contain streptococcus thermophilus or other strains linked to irritation.
  • Does not contain any spore-forming strains of probiotics (e.g. soil bacteria).
  • Is free of inulin, maltodextrin and other prebiotics.
  • Is free of excipients and other added ingredients, i.e. magnesium stearate, silica, titanium dioxide.
  • Is free of common allergens. All strains are grown on a dairy-free, soy-free, vegetarian, non-GMO culture. Does not contain milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, wheat/gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, yeast, corn or soy.
  • Is easy to calibrate the right dose for your needs. A little goes a long way. Many of our customers only take 1/64  of a teaspoon daily (the “drop” on our spoon set)!
  • In other words, we intentionally avoided the strains your body is not ready to assimilate when you're out of balance. We picked the strains that work for you, not against you. We thought about you, every step of the way!

Dosage: Powder

Always start with a smidge! Use one Smidge® spoonful (20 mg). Take once a day, with food, or as directed by a certified healthcare practitioner. (See "low and slow" note below.)

*Product comes with a dosage spoon.

Start low and slow: Our supplements are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it's critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a minimal dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what feels right for you. 

How to take: Use your dosage spoon to accurately measure your desired dose of probiotic powder. Sprinkle on lukewarm or cold food, mix it in a smoothie or take it with an organic fat, like butter, ghee, emu oil or coconut oil. See dosage instructions above for more info.

Dosage: Capsules

Adults: Always start with a smidge! Start with one capsule daily with food. Then take two capsules together, or as directed by a certified healthcare practitioner. (See "low and slow" note below).

Children: Take one capsule daily with food.

For sensitive adults and children: A smaller dose may be obtained by pulling apart the capsule and taking a portion of the contents.

Start low and slow: Our supplements are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it's critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a minimal dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what feels right for you.

How to take: For best absorption, we recommend taking your probiotic with a meal or a spoonful of organic fat, like butter, ghee, emu oil or coconut oil.

Great value for your money

Many people see the $125 price tag of the Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic and question the cost. But please keep in mind, because Smidge® is ultra premium, ultra clean and therefore, ultra concentrated, you only need a teeny, tiny amount per serving; and the bottle will last you a long time — roughly eight to 12 months, depending on dosage. When you consider the quality ingredients we use in our special formula as well as the dosing mentioned above, you will find that Smidge® is actually super cost-effective: At the standard dose, a one-month supply costs under $10. This is less than most store-bought probiotics and less than half the price of the mass produced "premium" brands.

Natural health practitioners are beginning to understand how important gut ecology is for health. The research on the microbiome is astounding – and we’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg.

One thing we’re learning about probiotics is that not all strains are beneficial for everyone. People struggling with particular sensitivities can find that some probiotics bring more bad than good. Over the years, we’ve gathered feedback from practitioners, parents and people who are using a diet designed for GAPS, SIBO, Body Ecology, Autism/PDD-NOS, PANDA/PANS, Paleo, AIP, Ketogenic, gluten-free, soy-free or casein-free.

Based on what we’ve learned from these different groups, we developed a unique probiotic formula.

If you’re a practitioner looking for a probiotic that you can confidently recommend to clients who are working within these parameters, GutPro® Probiotic Powder is for you, as it avoids what we like to call probiotic “landmines”.*

Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic:

  • Gives you the diverse benefits of a synergistic blend of eight proven strains. 
  • Avoids the strains that can sometimes cause problems.
  • Gives you just probiotics – nothing more. No prebiotics or fillers. No allergens. No hidden ingredients that can undermine the good you’re trying to achieve with a probiotic.
  •  

We’ve had customers who have tried a dozen – sometimes as many as 20 – different probiotic formulas. And after years of frustration and despair, they’ve told us that Smidge® was the one that finally worked for them.

Here’s why . . .

 Does not contain strains known to contribute to d-lactate acidosis

Lactobacillus acidophilus can work wonders in the gut by producing lactic acid. But for some of us, this can become a problem.

Lactate is a derivative of the lactic acid this strain produces. It comes in two isomeric forms, d-lactate and l-lactate.  Most of us have the capacity to metabolize both forms to some extent and turn it into pyruvic acid. 

But for various reasons, some people can’t metabolize d-lactate effectively enough to keep up with the d-lactate produced by gut bacteria. As a result, the d-lactate can build up in your body and cause d-lactate acidosis.

If this has been an issue for you, you’ll love Smidge® Probiotic Powder. We’ve kept any probiotic strains associated with d-lactate acidosis out of our Smidge® formula.

Yes, we do include strains like Lactobacillus plantarum which can produce d-lactate under certain conditions. But here’s the thing . . .

This strain primarily produces l-lactate.  L. plantarum only produce d-lactate under certain conditions. Better yet, L. plantarum may even help with acidosis by helping the body maintain a lactate equilibrium. And unlike L. acidophilus, L. plantarum is transient. It doesn’t take up residence in your gut and shift the ecosystem that dramatically.

Because of the powerful health benefits associated with this strains, we decided to keep it in the formula. Based on our research and years of customer satisfaction, we’re confident it does not contribute to d-lactate acidosis. 

Smidge® Powder can keep your body’s d-lactate in balance. But that’s not the only way this formula is designed for your clients… 

No probiotics linked to histamine production

Many people have trouble with probiotics linked to histamine production like L. casei. Histamines are chemicals produced by the immune system that can trigger an immune response.

So we’ve made sure that the strains included in this formula are either histamine-neutral or histamine-degrading.

That means you won’t have to worry about increasing your exposure to histamines when you take this probiotic formula.

That’s not the only irritant we’ve kept out of this formula… 

No spore-producing bacteria or streptococcus thermophilus

For people concerned about spore-producing Bacillus bacteria or Streptococcus thermophilus (e.g. soil strains), we’ve made sure to keep these strains out as well.

While the research is still ongoing about the impact these strains have on our systems, we believe that quite often, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. We decided to play it safe and keep this formula simple and easy on the most sensitive bodies.

Of course, it’s not just the probiotic strains you need to worry about.  Most probiotics supplements are only 10% to 20% probiotics and 80% to 90% something else.

Smidge’s custom probiotic powder is just probiotics – Nothing else!

  • There are no excipients or fillers like silica or magnesium stearate.
  • Nor are there any prebiotics like inulin or FOS. 
  •  

And, to make sure that this formula works for everyone – it’s free of common allergens! Every strain we use is grown on a dairy-free, soy-free, non-GMO vegetarian culture.

It does not contain milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, wheat/gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, yeast, corn or soy. 

8 clinically-proven, beneficial strains

Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic gives you a super team of eight clinically-proven probiotic bacteria* . . . 

Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus salivarius, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium lactis.

While we believe that no single strain in particular is the magic bullet for specific ailments and conditions – as strains should work together as they do in a healthy digestive system and the idea is to heal the overall gut first – the research on these eight strains is extensive… the potential health benefits enormous.*

All of these probiotic strains seem to play a role when it comes to comfortable, healthy digestion.* 

For example . . . 

  • No less than four clinical trials have shown that L. plantarum helps support comfortable digestion – helping to minimize gas, bloating, and abdominal pain.*
  • One of the first bacteria to colonize our bodies at birth, B. longum has been associated with helping to digest milk and other challenging foods. *
  • Bifidobacterium breve has been shown in a few clinical trials involving pre-term babies that this special bacteria works especially well in helping to establish a healthy colony of bacteria in the gut. *
  • Bifidobacterium lactis shows exciting promise in lab research to interfere with the body’s reaction to certain toxins from wheat.* 
  • And a recent randomized placebo-controlled study also showed that B. bifidum can help with stress-related diarrhea.*
  •  

These probiotics keep your immune system strong:

  • A 2015 clinical study published in the British Journal of Nutrition showed B. bifidum helped  academically stressed college students make it through the winter semester. The students who took B. bifidum had much fewer absences than the students who didn’t take the probiotic. *  
  •  

They regulate your immune system for a balanced immune response:

  • One of the most common probiotics, L. plantarum, seems to help regulate your immune response, reducing inflammation in the body.* Not only does L. plantarum stimulate the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines like IL-10, it also seems to stimulate the production of regulatory T-cells.*
  • Several clinical trials on both adults and children indicate that l. salivarius seems to help regulate the immune system and – as a result- support healthy skin.*

They keep inflammation in check:

  • Clinical research published in May, 2016 Journal of Rheumatic Diseases suggests that  B. bifidum can help you maintain comfortable joint movement by helping your body manage inflammation.*
  • Preliminary research on mice indicates that L. gasseri may inhibit inflammation signaling at the genetic level!*

Some help keep your mood buoyant and your brain sharp:

  • Preliminary studies indicate that L. plantarum may help you strengthen your memory, concentration and improve your mood.*  
  • And research suggests B. infantis regulates the production of tryptophan which is the precursor for serotonin.* Serotonin is the neurotransmitter associated with a sense of satisfaction and happiness.  

They may even help keep your teeth healthy and strong:

  • L. salivarius seems to help keep the microbial population in your mouth healthy.* 

 

Help your clients feel great with Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic and a real foods diet.

As you well know from your practice, probiotics can’t work in a vacuum. They only amplify the healthy changes you’re helping your clients make to their diet and lifestyle. A junk food diet can’t be overcome with even the best probiotic formulation.

But when people invest time and energy into making healthy changes in their lives, this careful probiotic formulation helps them make the most of it.

By including this formula in the regimen, you can help your clients see the full benefits of making these changes. And you’ll never have to worry about undermining all this hard work with the wrong probiotic strains.

Finally, because it’s a concentrated mix of pure probiotics, a little goes a long way. Many of our customers take only 1/64 of a teaspoon each day (the “drop” on our spoon set).  You can work with your clients to calibrate it exactly to what they need.

What to expect when starting Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic

Smidge® Sensitive Probiotic is designed for comfort. We’ve eliminated the potential problems associated with other probiotic formulas.

Nonetheless, some people still experience a little discomfort in the initial weeks of starting with Smidge®. Like with all probiotics, as you rebalance your internal ecosystem, some of the bacteria that are pushed out may not leave gracefully.

As these unwanted bacteria “die off,” they can cause mild dizziness, nausea or headaches. This is a typical response to starting with probiotics.

While this kind of discomfort is normal, it shouldn’t be experienced over the long term. Within a few weeks, once a healthy microbial community is established and the body has cleaned out much of the toxins, these discomforts should end.

If this initial discomfort is too much, we suggest you advise your clients to decrease the amount of powder taken. And then slowly increase the amount. Some of our customers start with a tiny bit, or ⅛ of the “drop” on our spoon set (the “drop” is 1/64 of a teaspoon)! Even at this small amount, your clients will receive billions of well balanced CFUs. 

Be assured that with Smidge®, we’ve removed the strains and other ingredients that can cause long-term problems.

Storage

Please keep the probiotics refrigerated and always capped for long-term storage. Do not remove the moisture packet inside the bottle.  Make sure the spoons are very clean and dry before using them with the powder for best results. 

The freeze dried organisms have undergone independent laboratory analysis for verification of stated potency (in both it’s raw and finished form).  The probiotic was tested in a variety of conditions and temperatures and is both highly stable and potent in the time it takes to reach it’s destination and for two years from the date of it’s production.

As an extra measure, we routinely include a higher number of CFU’s (organisms) in each bottle than is stated on the label to account for any potential and minimal degradation that might occur during shipping delays in extreme heat. 

Note: Freeze-dried organisms behave very differently than "live cultures" and are in a state of suspended animation.  This means the organisms are very stable and inactive until they come in contact with moisture.  Live cultures would perish quickly during shipping, freeze-dried bacteria do not. 

The probiotic powders are sealed in a non-permeable amber glass bottle to protect the organisms against moisture during shipping and for extended use and storage.  During our regular 2 day expedited shipping, the product has shown no decline in activity even after the product arrived warm and sometimes, even hot.  

What to do with the product once it arrives?  Simply store the bottle in the refrigerator.. Once the bottle has been opened, do not remove the moisture pillow inside in the bottle as this will help to protect the strains from moisture - which can compromise the probiotic.   

Do be mindful to replace the cap and return the product to the refrigerator after each dose.   The probiotic can remain at full potency for up to two weeks in room temperature, unrefrigerated, but should be kept cold and dry for long term storage and to ensure full potency throughout it's use.

Here’s what one of our many happy customers has to say:

Best Probiotics

“I have tried more than a few brands and I always come back to Smidge®. The best analogy I can think of is that it's like comparing $400 shoes to $10 shoes. There is just a world of difference in comfort and quality. With a child with many food intolerances and allergies and another with PDD-NOS, it really helps me that this has no fillers and everyone in the family can take it together.”     

- Valerie K.

Last but not least, according to the practitioners  

“As a practitioner I have tried many probiotic supplements with my clients over the years but was always concerned about additives and fillers as well as the streptococcus and acidophilus strains which never seemed to agree with my more sensitive ASD/GAPS clients. So imagine my delight when I first came across Smidge® and my wish had come true – clean, pure, d-lactate free, no unnecessary strains, no fillers and a concentrated formula which can be used by the whole family and is the most cost effective probiotic I’ve been able to find. Many happy clients later I can highly recommend it!

- Kitsa Yanniotis

Certified GAPS Practitioner, Certified Body Ecologist, Creator Kitsa’s Kitchen

“We use Smidge® as our multi-strain probiotic of choice for the majority of our clients. With extensive clinical evidence we’ve found it to be gentle upon entry for building the beneficial flora in the gut as well as conducive to therapeutic titration.  Bottom line is it works! Even for those with the most sensitive or compromised systems.  And personally, it’s my favorite probiotic to support both my own and my family’s health.”

- Andrea Nakayama

Functional Nutritionist, Replenish PDX

“Smidge® is changing the lives of each and every one of my clients daily. Not all probiotics are the same, quality really matters here. I have researched and used almost every available probiotic with little to no progressive results, until I discovered GutPro®. Taking even one antibiotic can greatly shrink your healthy, beneficial immune system fighting bacteria and give the pathogenic bacteria a chance to proliferate and create a whole host of imbalances. Since using GutPro® I am seeing cases where deep cellular viral, bacterial, allergies, sensitivities, mood and behavior concerns greatly improving and in many cases, resulting in full correction of the imbalance.

As a Naturopath, I use Smidge® myself and have seen amazing health improvements. I would not have the thriving wellness practice I have today without using Smidge® to help facilitate my clients in their healing, rebuilding and repairing process. Thank you Smidge® for creating such a clean, bio available essential healing tool!”

Pure, Micronized Zeolite Powder manufactured in the USA

Zeolite is a natural volcanic mineral, which works as a detoxifier for heavy metals, radiation, and other toxins. It was formed over millions of years when volcano ash settled on alkaline seawater. This resulted in a chemical reaction and created an extremely strong, negatively charged, cavernous compound. The unique negative charge of zeolite allows it to absorb dangerous toxins like a magnet by locking these toxins within its porous tunnels. Many refer to this as a “cage-like structure,” since once zeolite absorbs a toxin, the dangerous substance is locked within the zeolite structure and cannot be broken free. This means that zeolite safely and gentle carry out of the body any toxins it pick up as it travels through the body.

We start with the cleanest and purest zeolite on Earth, and mine specifically for human consumption. Our zeolite is then intensely washed and prepared to ensure a high level of cation capacity and clean cages. The zeolite is then put through rigorous processing and quality control tests to ensure that quality and safety is always maintained for human consumption. It is at this point that it is thoroughly dried and then MICRONIZED into a powder. Our zeolite has a wide ranging micron size, which allows for full body detox. Among some of the numerous metals zeolite has demonstrated in studies to absorb include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, barium and other toxic chemicals.

The CEC rating measures the ability of the zeolite to absorb toxins and heavy metals. Zeolites with higher ratings have better absorption capabilities.

ZEO Health LTD. CEC rating = 170 - 190 meq / 100 grams
Micron size for All Products*=0-40

*The most economical Zeolite detox on the market. Very finely micronized Zeolite.

Suggested Dose: 1 tsp per day
