Most humans currently suffer from nutrient deficiencies as can be seen in the rising cases of disease. Whether from empty calories (junk food), lack of variety of foods, chemical induced (pharmaceuticals), or any number of other factors from packaging, air, water, soil. And nutrient deficiencies have long-lasting health effects. Following are some of the more common vitamins and minerals lacking in our diets that can cause an array of symptoms from poor memory and bleeding gums to impaired productivity and depression.

VITAMIN B12 (cobalamin)

My husband just had a small basal cell growth removed from his back and so I feel he needs more protection for his skin. Should I have him use the Nourishing Treatment Oil as well as the Outdoor balm? If so, which one would go on first?

Dear Trish,
I wanted to get back to you, and to thank you. I also want to commend your customer service department. I am so pleased with the quality of the product I recently received. I did not look anywhere else, I googled spirulina and your site came up. Being one who has long ago given up on the idea of coincidence, I believe this is exactly the right product at the right time, in order for me to complete my recovery. Meeting and speaking with you was 'frosting on the cake.' I was so impressed that you would respond so quickly and take that much time with one customer. I no longer feel like just a customer, I now feel like a friend. So thank you again for that. I feel Divinely inspired. I hope it wouldn't be too presumptuous for me to ask for a little advice for a lifelong friend. He went through traditional cancer treatment last year and suffers, as I am told, from 'chemo-brain.' He has no energy, he is depressed, etc. I am planning to speak to him about the spirulina. I assume he'll want to ask his Doctor about it. Do you think this would help him and, are there any other recommendations you could make regarding this issue? I have complete confidence in you, your expertise and the products that you would recommend. Thank you once again for all of your kind consideration.
- Dan T

Dear Dan,
Inner Vitality Liquid fresh water plant-based minerals and MRH Certified Organic Spirulina will help to balance health, increase energy and vitality in every one who takes enough of those two products. The "enough" is adjusted depending on a person's biochemistry and therapeutic need. The Inner Vitality minerals are especially helpful for those with depression and anxiety. When those symptoms are alleviated, energy can be restored. Consultations are my pleasure and no charge .
Thank you for the testimonial.

Recent science tells us that magnesium is usually better absorbed using it on the skin topically than taking by mouth orally. I personally like to make a solution using magnesium flakes and water in a ratio of 2/3 flakes to 1/3 purified water that I put in a pump bottle. It's thicker than a spray which is made by using ration of 1/2 flakes to 1/2 water. - Trish Seaward, CN

Magnesium Oil Recipe + Magnesium Oil Uses

Nutrients applied to the skin are efficiently absorbed into the bloodstream. That is why we shouldn’t put anything on our skin that we don’t want coursing through our blood. And that is also why this homemade magnesium oil works so well: it’s a supplement we take through the skin.

What is magnesium oil?

Actually, it’s not an oil. It feels slippery like oil, but it is a solution of magnesium chloride flakes in water. (I recommend Ancient Minerals magnesium flakes.). Making it yourself provides a WAY more economical option. It provides the benefits of magnesium supplementation in an absorbable form. Additionally, the body will only take what it needs through the skin.

Benefits of magnesium oil

Magnesium deficiency is widespread and the use of magnesium oil can restore healthy magnesium levels in your body. Dr. Sircus, a leading magnesium researcher and author of Transdermal Magnesium Therapy, says

After oxygen, water, and basic food, magnesium may be the most important element needed by our bodies, vitally important yet hardly known. It is more important than calcium, potassium or sodium and regulates all three of them. Millions suffer daily from magnesium deficiency without even knowing it. (Read more in his article on magnesium deficiency.)

Another interesting connection Dr. Sircus makes is how excessive thirst often signals magnesium deficiency and mineral imbalance. There happens to be a relationship between what we perceive as thirst and deficiencies in electrolytes. I remember a person asking, “Why am I dehydrated and thirsty when I drink so much water?” Thirst can mean not only lack of water but it can also mean that one is not getting enough nutrients and electrolytes.

These are just some of the vital roles magnesium plays in the body:

  • Necessary cofactor for more than 300 enzyme reactions in your body

  • Needed for the relaxation of muscles so it is a key treatment for muscle cramps

  • Required for stable blood sugar and insulin sensitivity. Consumption of refined sugars deplete magnesium.

  • Vital for cardiovascular health

  • Key for balancing hormones for both men and women because it supports balanced minerals in the body

  • Needed in increased quantities during periods of increased emotional or physical stress, since stress burns through magnesium stores

  • Essential for mood regulation, particularly reducing anxiety and promoting a sense of wellbeing

How can you benefit by using magnesium oil? These are a few of the ways magnesium oil therapy works to improve symptoms by reducing the magnesium deficiency in your body:

  • Supports overall health

  • Reduces (and should eventually stop) muscle cramping, including menstrual cramps

  • Improves sleep, because magnesium is a “calming” and “soothing” mineral

  • Very helpful in reducing symptoms of PMS including bloating, mood swings and breast tenderness

  • Widely helpful for headaches and even migraines, according to Dr. Sircus. Many individuals have reported profound improvement in migraines when they use magnesium oil regularly.

  • A key part of any hormone-balancing protocol, because magnesium helps balance the other minerals and hormones in the body

  • As an anti-stress agent in the body, it often promotes a sense of peace and wellbeing. It is very helpful in depression and anxiety.

Magnesium Oil Recipe

  • 1/2 cup filtered water

  • 1/2 cup magnesium flakes

  • Spray bottle (I used a 4oz cobalt bottle, like this one)

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a non-aluminum saucepan. Turn off the heat and stir in the magnesium flakes until dissolved. When cool, pour into your spray bottle. No refrigeration is necessary.

  2. Spray it on to the body (details below) and lightly rub it in. It may still feel a bit greasy or moist on the skin. For me, it is fully absorbed without a residue within a few minutes. Use anywhere from 10-30 sprays per day.

How to apply magnesium oil

Expect a tingling sensation when you first start to use magnesium oil. If this is your first time using magnesium oil, apply it to a small area of skin first to gauge the intensity of the tingling/stinging.

Many people say that the tingling will decrease over time, as your body becomes less deficient in the nutrient. This was definitely true for me, although it still feels slightly unpleasant for a few minutes after application. But the health benefits are totally worth it!

Although it varies from person-to-person, there are general areas that are less sensitive to the magnesium oil and make better application sites. In my experience, areas with more adipose tissue (a.k.a. the plump areas) are less sensitive. Try the thighs, hips and belly. Shins and forearms also work well for me. Try to avoid the creases of the elbows, behind the knees, creases of the bottom, and the neck if you are experiencing tingling. These areas are usually more sensitive.

Do NOT apply magnesium oil to your legs after shaving them (will probably sting). Recommend waiting at least 12 hours before applying to shaved legs. If you experience no tingling/stinging when applying magnesium oil,you may be able to tolerate post-shave application. I personally apply to wrists and bottom of feet at bedtime.

You may notice a slight white film or powder on your skin after the magnesium oil dries. You can wipe or rinse this off, or briskly rub your skin and it will disappear.

Additional magnesium oil uses

  • Homemade magnesium oil makes a cheap and non-toxic deodorant! Again, if you experience any tingling with the oil on other body parts, do not apply it after shaving your pits.

  • Get beachy waves by spritzing your damp hair very lightly with your magnesium oil. This doesn’t work for all hair types, but if you have a natural wave to your hair, magnesium oil can add volume and beachy texture. You’ll probably notice your hair looks like you just came back from an ocean dip.

  • Take your bottle of magnesium oil with you to a massage. The masseuse can use then oil as a massage lotion and you will get a double whammy of relaxation from the magnesium and body work. Only do this if you do not experience tingling after applying the oil or request that the oil only be massaged onto non-sensitive areas, such as the thighs.

  • Dr. Sircus says that magnesium oil boosts healing after a sports injury. Applying it anywhere will support muscle healing, but you can also apply it to the area of a sore muscle.

  • Muscle cramps - Frequent muscle cramps will disappear as you use magnesium oil long-term and improve mineral balance with unrefined salt. Immediate application of magnesium oil can help instantly reduce a muscle cramp. Keep a small bottle of magnesium oil handy in case you experience a calf or foot cramp.

  • Add magnesium oil to your bath. It’s easier to add the magnesium flakes directly into your bath instead of first making magnesium oil with it. Use the equivalent of 1/2 cup (or more) magnesium flakes per bath. Magnesium in the bath is absorbed into the skin and magnesium baths are deeply soothing and relaxing before bed.

Rosehips 8 Amazing Benefits

The health benefits of rose hips include their ability to reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, relieve various respiratory conditions, prevent cancer, lower cholesterol, manage diabetes, increase urination, regulate your digestive system, boost the immune system, increase circulation and help in building stronger bones.

MegaSpore Biotic is the first, all spore, pharmaceutical grade probiotic product that takes advantage of nature’s design for a perfect and true probiotic. Physicians Exclusive has identified key spores as both safe and effective at supporting digestive health and boosting immunity and is making these spores available for the first time in as a dietary supplement. MegaSpore Biotic is the first dietary supplement probiotic that contains 5 proven pharmaceutical grade bacillus spores including the patented carotenoid rich probiotic strain – B. Indicus HU36.

Q: Why is MegaSpore Biotic different from other probiotics already on the market? It is the only product with 5 pharmaceutical grade bacillus spore strains. In addition, it is the first probiotic to introduce a strain that produces key nutrients in the digestive system. In this case, the nutrients produced are powerful carotenoid antioxidants. Carotenoids are the beneficial antioxidants found in colored fruits and vegetables. Carotenoids from dietary supplements however are poorly absorbed and most people do not eat as many colored fruits and vegetables as they should, thus supplementation with a carotenoid rich probiotic is highly important. These beneficial bacteria produce high levels of carotenoids right at the sight of absorption, thus allowing for optimum uptake into the body. MegaSpore Biotic is the first and only probiotic with such a feature.

Q: What is a probiotic? Probiotics are the fastest growing category in the supplement industry. Recent research done by the NIH has defined probiotics by a strict criteria:
1. The organism must be a normally occurring organism in the digestive tract.
2. In order to consistently trigger a healthy boost in immune function the organism must be supplemented in concentrations higher than what normally occurs in the digestive tract.
3. The organism must be able to survive in the digestive tract as well as in the environment.
Interestingly, there are almost no probiotics in the marketplace that meet all three of these criteria.

Q: Why doesn’t MegaSpore Biotic contain lactobacillus or bifidobacter species of probiotic? Lactobacillus and Bifidobacter species do meet the first requirement according to the new probiotic criteria defined by research from the Human Microbiome Project that is run by the National Institutes for Health - they do naturally occur in the digestive tract. In fact lactobacillus and bifidobacter species are in very high concentrations in the digestive tract of humans.

This is exactly why these 2 bacteria cannot meet criteria two. There are in excess of 20 trillion lactobacillus and bifidobacter species in the average human digestive tract. Supplements today contain100 billion strains on the high end. This is nowhere near the amount that would be necessary to stimulate the immune system. This also assumes that the bacteria will survive the digestive tract. Research shows that a majority of orally supplemented lactobacillus and bifidobacter species are destroyed by the conditions found in the stomach and upper digestive tract.

Lastly, most lactobacillus and bifidobacter species are anaerobic organisms that are designed to live in the digestive tract. They don’t normally live in the environment because they are sensitive to the presence of oxygen, UV light and other chemicals found in the natural environment. This means they do not fit criteria 3 of our new definition of probiotics. Its important to note that an individual gets their initial dose of lactobacillus and bifidobacter species from their mother through birth and breast feeding. Later in life, orally derived probiotics must be organisms that live naturally in the environment as well at the digestive system so that exposure to these organisms are possible.

Q: I am currently taking a probiotic and it seems to be working just fine. Why should I switch to MegaSporeBiotic? MegaSpore offers functions that other common probiotics do not. Effective probiotics go beyond digestive health and critical for immune function, immune stimulation, managing populations of dangerous bacteria, digestion of cholesterol, neutralizing toxins, and production of key nutrients. Unless your current probiotic contains high doses of several spore strains, it is not providing all these beneficial effects.

Q: What spores are present in MegaSporeBiotic? MegaSporeBiotic contains 5 pharmaceutical grade strains. Each have a unique function contributing to the overall effectiveness of the product. Below is a brief description of each:

1) Bacillus Indicus HU36 – The first carotenoid rich probiotic strain offered to the dietary supplement market. An isolate from humans, Indicus HU36 produces high levels of powerful carotenoids (antioxidants) at the site of absorption. Carotenoids do not survive the gastric system well. HU36 however, has demonstrated the ability to survive past the stomach acid and produce the carotenoids at their site of absorption in the gut. This makes the carotenoids produced by HU 36 the most bioavailable supplementary carotenoids in the marketplace. HU36 gives MegaSpore Biotic a function that no other probiotic formulations on the market can claim - it provides key nutrients in their most potent form.

2) Bacillus Clausii – This strain is the largest selling strain of prescription probiotic in the world. For the first time, this strain is made available to the U.S. dietary supplement industry and is available exclusively to healthcare professionals. Bacillus Clausii is recommended for use during antibiotic treatment due to its ability to resist damage from a variety of common antibiotics. MegaSpore has the unique function of being a powerful supplement that can be used in adjunct with antibiotic therapy to keep the organisms balanced in the gut.

3) Bacillus Subtilis HU58 – Bacillus Subtilis has been extensively studied on a genetic and functional level. There are several probiotic products in the pharmaceutical and agricultural markets that utilize this powerful probiotic. One very interesting function of Bacillus Subtilis is its ability to produce nearly 12 strong antibiotics that are potent fighters of opportunistic and harmful bacteria. Bacillus Subtilis HU58 offers MegaSpore Biotic the ability to prevent harmful bacteria growth in a variety of conditions. In addition, HU58 produces a very healthy compound called Nattokinase. Nattokinase is secreted from vegetative cells of Bacillus subtilis and has been shown to reduce blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and reduce excessive clotting by fibrinolysis (arterial plaque is made up of fibrinolysis and fat). Along with Nattokinase, Bacillus subtilis also produces a number of other nutrients that have systemic health benefits such as B vitamins and Vitamin K2. Bacillus Subtilis HU58 offers the important function of fighting off pathogenic bacteria and producing key nutrients in the gut itself. In addition, HU58 is an extremely potent immune stimulator. It has the function of germinating in the small intestines to some degree and this offers the effect of broad-spectrum immune stimulation.

4) Bacillus Licheniformis – A probiotic often found with Bacillus Subtilis and other bacillus species, Licheniformis has been shown to have a potent effect of preventing the growth of harmful bacteria via the production of a common antibiotic called bacitracin. It is also a potent immune stimulator. Another very important feature of bacillus licheniformis is its ability to produce highly effective and stable protease enzymes in the gut that assist in the digestion and absorption of proteins. Lastly, Licheniformis also produces the whole spectrum of B vitamins in the gut including folate and biotin and acts as an important nutrient factory in the digestive system.

5) Bacillus Coagulans – A very well studied probiotic in the spore family that has a profound effect on inflammatory conditions such as IBS and Crohn’s. Bacillus Coagulans offers MegaSpore Biotic an expanded effect of controlling these common inflammatory bowel conditions in addition to its potent immune boosting activity. Coagulans has the unique attribute of producing lactic acid and specifically the L+ optical isomer of lactic acid, which has been shown to have a more profound effect on immune stimulation and gut defense than the other forms of lactic acid produced by conventional probiotics. Coagulans is also a tremendous colonizer and thus assures proper colonization of MegaSpore, which in turn will produce the beneficial effects required. Coagulans also plays a key role in digestion of food and absorption of nutrients. In fact, Coagulans can digest incoming fat to reduce the uptake of cholesterol. Coagulans adds another dimension to MegaSpore - potent ability to fight inflammatory conditions, aid in digestion, and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.

Q: What are the side effects of taking a probiotic or MegaSporeBiotic? None have been reported for MegaSpore Biotic.

Q: Any significance of taking after a meal? What about if on an empty stomach? Yes. The amino acids and carbohydrates in food help the spores move from their dormant (spore state) to their active (vegetative state) form in the GI. There are tremendous immune benefits if the spores are made to germinate from their vegetative state in the upper GI itself, so taking just after a meal is ideal (10-20 minutes after).

Q: If a probiotic has no spot to colonize, can it cause problems until it is expelled? In theory, yes. The bacteria could be seen as an invading species and the body can mount an immune response to it. The response would be a pro-inflammatory innate response which can then harm other tissues in the area as well. With bacillus spores being such universal probiotics, you can feel comfortable that they have a spot to colonize every time.

Q: How do you know what to give patients and for what conditions? Health in general starts in the gut. Hippocrates said it in 400 B.C. and since then modern science has proven it. Any immune dysfunction (auto-immune, allergies, food sensitivities, rashes, psoriasis, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, etc.) can be traced back to a dysfunction in the GI. All inflammatory conditions as well. Now, modern science has shown us that weight control, mood, depression and other mental disorders are also connected to the gut (the second brain). Even chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc. can be traced back to the gut.

Everything starts in the GI. With that in mind, everyone should be on a daily dose of this probiotic as well as a diet that supports a healthy flora. It is as essential as any multivitamin, greens drink or fish oil product that people may use as part of their daily nutrition. One will see some benefit as they are now replacing an essential nutrient that has been missing from their diet. For those that present with a strong yeast issue or those with strong inflammatory conditions (Crohn’s, IBD, Ulcerative colitis, etc.), they should titrate the dose up slowly. Starting with 1 cap every other day for a week or until they can tolerate, then 1 cap per day using the same discretion and finally 2 caps per day. Symptoms to watch out for include intestinal cramping and diarrhea. If those symptoms present, dosage should be reduced until there is symptom relief and monitored from there.

Q: Can live fermented foods colonize the gut effectively? And would these spore probiotics help the SIBO condition, which has been characterized as an overgrowth of good bacteria. Also can excess candida yeast be helped?  Foods are great for the GI, but the benefits don’t typically come from the microorganisms in the food going in and colonizing, it comes from the ferment itself. The many nutrients the bacteria made while fermenting the foods are what helps the GI and the immune system from fermented foods. The problem however is they don’t do much to alter the dysbiosis (imbalance) one may have in the GI. This is where a true and effective probiotic comes in. MegaSpore Biotic contains one of the only strains that have been shown in studies to actually alter the GI flora when it colonizes. This is a difficult task when you consider that the flora is made up of nearly 100 trillion cells and the probiotic is there in a concentration of just a few billion. But some strains are specialized to do this type of work and our strain Bacillus Subtilis HU58 is one such strain.

Another key strain in the formula (Bacillus Clausii) has been used as a prescription treatment for SIBO for a number of years. It can be very effective in your patients suffering with SIBO. We have had numerous cases of candidiasis that have seen great benefit from this product. There can be some strange looking excrement for a period of time as the yeast leaves the system, but we have always seen very consistent and positive results.

Q: So, Greek yogurt does not work? Unfortunately yogurts and yogurt based drinks (including kefir) don’t work as probiotics in our experience and research. There are some benefits from the fermentation process and those benefits are contained in the product in the form of micro-nutrients. But those strains used in yogurts and other fermented dairy products do not have the ability to survive the harsh stomach and colonize in the GI.

Q: In the case of gut dysbiosis would there be a need to reduce the population of the good guys and bad guys before repopulating the gut? Yes, you can certainly have too many of certain good guys. In fact, a commensal bacterium in your GI is a “good guy” only until a certain point. Once that “good guy” reaches a certain population level, it can easily become a “bad guy” as in being a problem for the system. This is the issue in SIBO. One of the most profound effects of these bacillus spores in MegaSpore Biotic is their ability to “police” the GI. They facilitate and support the growth of the good bacteria that are under populated and can reduce the numbers of the bacterium that are over grown. They create a modulating effect on the microbiota. Use MegaSpore to help regulate the microbiota, then use foods and supplements that support the growth of the good bacteria. Taking the spores daily will ensure that the balance is not lost again.

Q: How is your product different from Lactobacillus Sporogenes by Thorne? Lactobacillus Sporongenes is a mislabeling of Bacillus Coagulans. We will refer to the product under its correct name which is bacillus coagulans. Bacillus Coagulans is a spore former with the benefits we talked about with our product, in fact, we also have bacillus coagulans in our formulation as one of the 5 strains. There are however some very important differences between MegaSpore Biotic and the Bacillus Coagulans product from Throne. They are as follows:

1) We are verified to be in 100% spore form – this is critical as spore formers are also unable to survive the journey to the intestines unless they are in spore form. From what we have seen, other products that may contain 1 or 2 spores have only some of those strains in spore form; the rest are in vegetative cell form. This makes them less effective.

2) We have 5 critical strains that work in synergy. These bacillus spores aren’t found by themselves in nature. In nature these spores are typically in co-existence with other bacillus spores and they support one another in the human body. Having an effective consortium of the right spores is more how nature intended. In addition, these various spores perform different functions in the body. Having just 1 of the strains means at least 1/5 less function.

3) With 5 strains you get a whole spectrum of nutrient production that you won’t see with just 1 strain. Between these proprietary 5 strains in MegaSpore, they produce the whole spectrum of B vitamins, quinols, vitamin K2, digestive enzymes, etc. Each of the strains produces a different set of micronutrients.

4) Lastly, MegaSpore Biotic contains the patented Bacillus Indicus HU36 – this is the world’s first carotenoid (antioxidant) rich probiotic. This strain colonizes in the GI and produces RDA levels of carotenoids right at the site of absorption.

Q: Can probiotics or spore probiotics be safely taken when breast feeding or pregnant? Physicians Exclusive has a number of patients and individuals who are taking the product during pregnancy and nursing. If the pregnant or nursing mother has strong inflammatory conditions or yeast issues, they should also be titrated up so there isn’t a detox reaction.

Q: When using MegaSporeBiotic, is dosing once per day or more often depending upon clinical presentation of the patient? The product should always be dosed once per day only. There is no need or benefit in splitting the dose to 2 or more per day or doubling the dose of 2 capsules. You want to get the full dose of probiotics in at once. This again is best about 10-20 minutes after a meal.

Q: What test do you recommend for stool flora evaluation? Comprehensive Digestive Stool analysis is the best way to evaluate the composition of Flora in the bowel.

Q: View on vsl#3 and Saccharomces Boulardii, and the use of Lactoferrin? VSL 3 is a probiotic formulation that uses the same rationale as 95% of probiotics out in the market place. It uses 8-10 strains of various lactobacillus and bifidobacterium species but has focused on formulating the largest numbers of these strains – in one of these formulations they claim nearly 900 Billion CFU. It may have some effect on acute symptoms, but we would not feel comfortable saying that it performs as a “probiotic” per the World Health Organization definition.

Saccharomyces Boulardii is a strain we like and we believe is effective. It fits natures design as a probiotic and the scientific definition as well. It is however a probiotic fungus and not a bacteria. Although it can be effective against diarrhea, it has limited function. To use it by itself as a daily probiotic is incomplete therapy. Use MegaSpore Biotic and supplement from time to time with S. Boulardii in cases of severe and acute diarrhea.

Lactoferrin is an immune component that can be useful for acute infections or conditions. It is not designed to be used chronically. If you look in nature, the highest concentration of lactoferrin is found in human colostrum, then the concentration reduces in human milk. Colostrum only comes in the first few days after birth and then milk comes in where nature has designed for the lactoferrin concentration to reduce. Of course the milk eventually stops as well and so humans have not evolved to require or use lactoferrin their entire life. It's important to establish the innate immune system in newborns and to protect the newborn from infection as newborns are not producing their own immune cells. Then it becomes less important as the newborn matures and starts to produce its own innate immunity components.

The strains in MegaSpore Biotic are a potent immune modulator and they do this equally for children and adults. It has been shown that our immune systems are likely designed with a need for this daily stimulation and modulation by bacillus spores. This would not be surprising from an evolutionary stand point when you consider that our ancestors got a daily dose of these strains their entire lives.

Q: What is the general length of time needed to get the gut to self-inoculate? In other words, how long do you have to take these spores before you can ease up and survive on your own?  Nature has designed these spores to be a daily foundational food. They are transient microorganisms, thus they don’t stay in the GI forever. They go in, perform a function and leave. This is important as this helps keep their numbers in the GI relatively low which means each dose has an effect.

It takes them about 21 days to reach a steady state concentration in the GI with daily supplementing - this stage is where they are the most effective in regulating the GI. And at this stage, it is important to consume a diet low in refined sugars and higher in fibers to facilitate the growth of a person's own good bacteria. The spores can help increase the growth good bacteria. Between the spores being present and the improved diet, the individual will go into a state where they have the right microbiota balance. If the spores are removed, then you are tipping the balance back towards dysbiosis/imbalance. The use of the spores on a daily basis is a very important maintenance practice. We are bombarding our GI on a daily basis with things that shift the balance. The presence of these spores are required to remain and police our GI.

Q: What are the actual number results from GI study of all the carotenoids, Vit K2, etc.? In the GI study, focus was on the caroteniods and of being able to enumerate the quantities produced and absorbed. We did not focus on the vitamins and enzymes. The study showed that on average, after 3-4 weeks of daily use, the strain was producing roughly 800ug of carotenoids per day. These carotenoids are produced right at the site of absorption and are thus roughly 10 times more bioavailable than standard, supplemented carotenoids. The researchers concluded that it reaches the Recommended Daily Allowance of carotenoids.

Q: Are you working on a spore type product for fecal transplanting? No, it’s not necessary to administer spores in that manner. There are 2 main reasons why fecal transplants can be effective; 1) you can administer a high enough dose of the lactobacillus and bifidobacterium species and 2) you are not passing through the harsh gastric barrier, thus they can survive to reach the intestines. Spores can already survive the harsh gastric barrier and can be supplemented in effective dosages via oral dosing, thus they don’t need to be administered through the rectum.

Q: Any healing crisis that may develop when you first start these and they start killing off yeasts or other pathogens? As with any product that is effective in restoring balance to an unhealthy intestinal tract, experiencing herxheimer/detox reactions is possible. Because of this we recommend that the dose be titrated up slowly to control these reactions. The most frequent symptoms reported are intestinal cramping and loose stools. Decreasing dose eliminates any uncomfortable symptoms.

Q: What Conditions are specific for MegaSporeBiotic? Clinically, we have benefitted the following conditions and other doctors have reported major benefits in these listed conditions as well:
Crohn’S, IBS, IBD and colitis, minor and major gastro discomfort – gas, bloating, indigestion, acid reflux/GERD, Hashimoto’s disease, cystic acne, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, asthma, eczema, psoriasis.

Q: Can pets be supplemented with MegaSporeBiotic? Yes, the strains are universal probiotics and are used in all types of animals and livestock throughout the world, including marine life. Take one capsule, pull it apart and sprinkle it on their food.

Q: Will the spores still work if you pull the pill apart and still take it? Absolutely. This is the preferred way to administer to children. It can be pulled apart and the powder mixed into nearly any food or drink. It is temperature stable, so it can even be mixed into hot tea, coffee or soup. There is no real taste impact of the powder.

Q: How much MegaSporeBiotic do I give my child? Start at 1/8 to 1/4 capsule (depending on gut imbalance) every day with a meal and slowly titrate up to 1/2 capsule per day with a goal of reaching 1 capsule per day. Continue for 3 months at 1 capsule per day and evaluate the treatment plan and response. If necessary dose can be increased but depends highly on the individual and age as well. The goal with children is a very lose dose and slowly titrating up.

Q: What is the shelf life of MegaSporeBiotic? 2 Years, expiration date will be indicated on the box.

Q: Where can I purchase MegaSpore Biotic? Currently offered only through health practitioners, for best results MegSpore should be monitored due to the digestion diversity of each individual. Testimonials on MegaSpore Biotic
