Bio-Kult

120 caplets

$56.98 +tax

This is a therapeutic grade probiotic recommended for people on the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Diet.

According to their website: Bio-Kult is a unique multispecies, multistrain probiotic with 14 strains of beneficial bacteria. This means that Bio-Kult can deliver high concentrations of beneficial bacteria to the colonisation sites in the gut – and therefore be able to help a more diverse range of digestive disorders.

The beneficial bacteria in Bio-Kult are micro-encapsulated during the freeze drying process, which gives two main benefits:

1. They are protected from the harsh acid environment of the stomach and are therefore able to colonise the full length of the gastrointestinal tract.

2. The process allows Bio-Kult to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration. Bio-Kult can be used on a continuous basis or for a short period of time, e.g. when taking antibiotics

Ingredients: Probiotic cultures [Bacillus subtilis PXN 21, Bifidobacterium spp. (B. bifidum PXN 23, B. breve PXN 25, B. infantis PXN 27, B. longum PXN 30), Lactobacillus spp. (L. acidophilus PXN 35, L. delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus PXN 39, L. casei PXN 37, L. plantarum PXN 47, L. rhamnosus PXN 54, L. helveticus PXN 45, L. salivarius PXN 57), Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis PXN 63, Streptococcus thermophilus PXN 66], Cellulose (bulking agent), Vegetable Capsule (Hydroxypropylmethyl Cellulose).

Strength: Minimum 2 billion probiotic microorganisms per capsule (2x109 CFU/capsule), equivalent to 10 billion probiotic microorganisms per gram (1x1010 CFU/gram)

He treated many patients with this combination. Ingredients: Fermented Cod Liver oil, butter oil concentrated through centrifugation, silca. Contains COD (Pacific Cod) Milk.

Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil Caps

1 bottle (120 Caps)

$38.67 +tax

Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil in capsule form. We've found this can be easier to take than the liquid form. Cod Liver Oil is know to have high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, and very high levels of vitamin A and vitamin D. According to Blue Ice: "Fish oils have historically been fermented for extraction; back in the Roman empire days, Viking era and all the way up to the Mid 1850’s. Rendering was introduced during the mid 1850’s as a more efficient fish liver processing method. The livers yielded a much higher total oil volume and the process could be accomplished in several hours rather than several months. What they did not understand is the effects that heat had on the nutrients (their science was not ready to address this question) . As with all industrial models, the focus was on profitability, speed or turns and, marketability (taste)." Allergy Statement: This product is made from wild caught fish and may contain other seafood allergens such as shellfish.

(Mix in small amount as you wish.) Stronger taste than your usual pickle - a little goes a long way!?? Ingredients: ume plums, sea salt, red shiso leaves No need to refrigerate, but keep in cool place.
