Prescript-Assist - Soil Based Organism Probiotic Review

I thought i would do a blog post on one of my favorite probiotic/prebiotic supplements called Prescript-Assist.

There are so many  advantages of choosing Prescript-Assist over other probiotics, the first being is that its shelf-stable and does not require refrigeration. The manufacturer states that Prescript-Assist is shelf stable for 2 years which is impressive. Most probiotic supplements require to be refrigerated, so by the time they sit for months on the hot shelf of a health food store, most the viable live organisms are dead. Which is what gives Prescript-Assist Probiotic a significant benefit over other probiotic formulas.

Prescript-Assist is different from your typical lactic acid probiotics and are soil based organism probiotics. Primal Defense is another popular soil based organism but only contains a few strains of SBO's, compared to Prescript-Assist which contains 29 different symbiotic strains of SBO's. We stringently clean our plant foods and vegetables these days, so our diet is completely deficient in gut-flora supportive soil-based organisms.

Another benefit to Prescript-Assist is that its one of the few probiotics which has a double, blind clinical study showing its benefits for sufferers of irritable bowel syndrome(IBS). You won't find many probiotic supplements supported by peer reviewed, clinical studies.  The study concluded that Prescript-Assist significantly reduced the symptoms associated with IBS.

This study identified 3 subsyndromic factors of IBS: general ill feelings/nausea, indigestion/flatulence, and colitis. In this methodologically oriented double-blind study in patients with IBS, combined probiotic-prebiotic treatment with Prescript-Assist was associated with significant reductions in these factors. - Source Study

Probiotics and fermented foods are very effective for repopulating the gut flora with beneficial bacteria. However there are a class of foods known as prebiotics, which are indigestible fibers found in various foods, which feed and stimulate the growth of the beneficial gut bacteria.

Prebiotics may be even more important than probiotics overall for maintaining healthy gut flora balance. As is a diet low in refined sugars, which can cause opportunistic pathogens to flourish. The great bit about the Prescript-Assist - Soil Based Organism Probiotics is that it also contains prebiotics to helps these bacteria flourish.

If you check the various retailers on the internet, you will find Prescript-Assist consistently scores exceptionally high reviews from happy consumers raving about its digestive and other health benefits. I really feel it is one of the best probiotic/prebiotic supplements on the market at present.

Chris Kresser is also another respected health researcher, who is very fond of recommending Prescript-Assist in his practice.

Prescript-Assist is also gluten, dairy free and vegan.

Human clinical research — including a published peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial — shows that Prescript-Assist:
  • Replenishes healthy GI microflora*
  • Promotes a healthy gastro-intestinal environment*
  • Relieves occasional abdominal discomfort and bloating*
  • Alleviates occasional indigestion and nausea*
  • Promotes a normal bowel pattern*
  • Reduces flatulence*
  • Supports overall wellness and vitality*
Many people ask me what the best time is to take probiotics. I usually recommend first thing and last thing before bed as this is when stomach acid levels are lowest, hence better chances of these probiotic's surviving to implant.

However i find Prescript-Assist works best taken with meals, it really helps aid digestion, reduce food sensitivities and maintain regularity. It really is one of the most effective probiotics for restoring the gut microflora and is backed by lots of positive reviews. My friends food allergies also completely disappeared with taking Prescript-Assist Probiotic.

I have tried most probiotics on the market and often at high doses including VSL #3, dr ohhira probiotics, custom probiotics, threelac and so on. Most of these virtually done nothing to help my digestive problems.

For more information or to purchase, Prescript-Assist Probiotic is available from Natu Health Store at - Prescript-Assist® - Soil Based Probiotic

The Health Benefits Of Jing Preservation

Traditional Chinese medicine and buddist monks have long known about the powerful health benefits, that comes with minimizing sexual fluid loss or what they refer to as preserving Jing.

Jing is the Chinese expression for the essential fluid of our physical body, but i like to think of Jing as preserving ones life-force energy or adrenal gland reserves. 

We lose many vital nutrients such as the minerals zinc, selenium, amino acids and b-complex vitamins through sexual fluid loss. How much a loss of these nutrients is debatable and there still isn't much research on this subject, but i would agree with nutritional balancing expert Dr Lawrence Wilson's opinion that the deficit of nutrients from sexual fluid loss is often too great to be replaced from food alone.

Contrary to popular medical opinion i believe jing or sexual fluid preservation has a number of health benefits and it has improved my health in many ways. Im more calm, confident, positive, more energy and overall happier.

The rules are simple, all you need to do is start by reducing sexual fluid loss. There are many different view points from alternative doctors and spiritual enthusiasts about how often one should ejaculate, i think for a healthy balanced individual 1-3 times a week maximum is a healthy point of view.

Some may initially notice some symptoms such as anxiety, depression, testicle pain or even fatigue as there body begins to re-adjust, these are often changes in autonomic nervous system balance and endocrine function.

Many report noticing improved well being very quickly, here are some of the common benefits that individuals report from jing perservation.
