Bio-Kult – Probiotic multi-strain Formula (1 Pack – 120 caps)


Bio-Kult is a unique probiotic with a high concentration of 14 strains of beneficial bacteria. Bio-Kult is the recommended probiotic for those following the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet and was formulated by a team of doctors including Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.

The human gut contains trillions of bacteria, comprising over 400 species. The majority are beneficial but some can adversely effect the body’s own defenses. You are exposed every day to hostile bacteria through food and drink. To counterbalance these invaders, you need to ensure a healthy level of “beneficial” bacteria.

The healthy level of good bacteria in the gut can be reduced by factors such as poor diet, antibiotics, foreign travel, stress, aging, and infection. A convenient way of maintaining the healthy balance in the gut is to use a probiotic. Probiotics were first scientifically identified as being helpful by Dr. Metchnikoff, a Nobel Prize winner working at the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1907.

Bio-Kult, an advanced broad spectrum probiotic, was developed by a team of doctors, nutritionists, and scientists. Bio-Kult contains 14 strains of beneficial bacteria including Bacillus subtilis, a catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil. This bacteria is able to tolerate extreme environmental conditions.

Bio-Kult also contains L. Acidophilus, L. Casei, L. Delbruekii.bulgaricus, L. Delbruekii.lactis, L. Helveticus, L. Plantarum, L. Rhamnosus, L. Salivarius, B. Breve, B. Bifidum, B. Infantis, B. Longum, and S. Thermophilus in cellulose base. This product also contains silica and magnesium stearate in a vegetable capsule (200 mg capsule). There is a minimum of 10 billion grams of probiotic microorganisms per one gram.

Each package contains 120 small capsules. Capsules may be pulled apart and the powder added to liquid or food if desired.

Pharmacist offers CTV viewers a medicine cabinet tip: soluble fiber

Keeping a perfectly stocked medicine cabinet is much easier when you have the advice of holistic pharmacist and health author, Sherry Torkos. Appearing on Winnipeg’s CTV News, the author of The Canadian Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine said a lot of Canadians suffer with digestive problems. She suggests keeping Sunfiber on hand. This soluble fiber helps promote regularity and supports overall health. And, its versatility may even encourage you to move it out of the medicine cabinet and into your kitchen’s pantry.

Dietary fiber from fruits, vegetables and whole grains, helps promote a healthy digestive system and is an essential part of a balanced diet. “For a lot of Canadians, digestive problems, whether its constipation, gas, bloating or other issues can occur,” said Torkos. “It’s because we’re not getting enough fiber in our diets.”

Soluble fiber helps promote intestinal and colon health by helping move food through the intestines. “This is a really good form of soluble fiber to keep on hand. It’s a regulating fiber,” said Torkos. “It’s called Sunfiber.” This fiber supplement not only helps with occasional constipation, but also with occasional diarrhea. Sunfiber may also help your body absorb essential nutrients, such as calcium, iron and zinc and help lower blood glucose levels.

Sunfiber has another health benefit, which not all fiber supplements can claim: it acts as a prebiotic. Prebiotics help stimulate growth and activity of beneficial digestive flora. This can lead to less gas, bloating and discomfort.

Sunfiber is a fine, white powder which can easily be blended into most foods and beverages. “You mix it with water. It’s tasteless and odorless. It’s great,” Torkos commented. She recommends drinking plenty of water with fiber supplements, to help the fiber move through your body. Sunfiber can also be used when cooking or baking. The gluten-free supplement readily dissolves crystal clear into other ingredients. “I highly recommend fiber supplements,” Torkos said, “not just for regularity, but for overall well-being.”
