Great Gut Prebiotic Fiber Review & Giveaway

Great Gut Works!

Fiber is a crucially important part of our diet. Seriously, fiber is what bulks up our stools so that they pass easily, allowing us to process nutrients and handle waste efficiently. Our contemporary diet contains precious little fiber, especially in the US, where produce consumption is down while fast food consumption is up!

What Is PreBiotic Fiber?

Prebiotics are a special class of functional food ingredients that resist digestion in the stomach and are selectively fermented in the colon. They stimulate the growth of the good bacteria in our gut that have been associated with positive health benefits, particularly in combination with a gut health diet. Note that probiotics are the good bacteria. Great Gut Prebiotics stimulate the growth of probiotics as they add fiber.

Unlike psyllium, and other purely bulk producing fiber supplements, prebiotic fiber mixes easily in hot or cold water, without making them slimy and weird. Plus, they promote regularity while balancing out your gut flora, which is always a good idea.

The Great Gut Promise

I found this product during a search for a fiber supplement that was unflavored and wouldn't turn everything I mixed it with into a gross slimy gel. Great Gut promised easier bowel movements, a healthy gut, no flavor, and easy blending. Plus, you get a good number of servings in the tub.

Great gut

The Good: The dose is small. Just a small scoop (1t). Blends easily, especially into warm beverages, soups, and warn cereals, so you can have fiber in your coffee or tea! Very little flavor. What is there is a bit sweet, but unnoticeable in most foods. I have tried it in chili and soup, as well as oatmeal and yogurt, and no noticeable taste. Bowel movements are definitely better - easier, more formed, more regular.

The Bad: It doesn't always dissolve well in colder liquids, but is fine in cold yogurts and puddings. So really, not so bad.

I don't use Great Gut all of the time, as I have a pretty good whole foods diet with tons of fiber, but I use it as needed and it always works, in a very gentle and efficient way.

The Great Gut Giveaway

Two of my fabulous readers will win a tub of Great Gut! And hey, when you try it, please leave a Great Gut review on Amazon and let folks know your experience. It helps!

On the Road to Wellness: Adapten-All

Adapten-All adrenal support supplement, along with a multi-vitamin and fish oil, has also helped a lot.

Thanks to my fabulous gynecologist, I have a compounding pharmacist, Scott Berliner from Life Science Pharmacy in upstate NY, who makes my bio-identical hormone replacment cream ever 90 days. Since he is trusted by the physicians at Beth Israel, I trust him too. When Dr. Sondhi at Continuum tested my thyroid and found everything to be normal, I emailed Scott.

The First Bottle of Adapten-All

He immediately replied and recommended Ortho Molecular - Adapten-All, saying that it worked well for adrenal fatigue, but would take about three months to really set in. I ordered a bottle from Amazon, and two days later had them. Scott recommended that I start with one capsule in the morning and one at lunch for two weeks, then two capsules morning and lunch thereafter for at least 90 days.

I am at the end of the first bottle of 120 capsules, and between the multi-vitamin, the fish oil, the better diet, the acupuncture, and the Adapten-All I am feeling much better.

Why Adapten-All Works

According to Scott and to their website,

The Importance of Natural Vitamin and Mineral Supplements for Adrenal Health

A balanced vitamin and mineral supplement regimen is critical when addressing adrenal regulation. The synthesis and secretion of cortisol is largely dependent on adequate supplies of various vitamins. Vitamin C is needed for steroid biosynthesis and is depleted from the adrenal cortex upon high cortisol secretion. Niacin derivatives are also necessary co-factors for steroid biosynthesis. Pantothenic acid is vital to maintain steroid secretion from the adrenal cortex.

Herbal Extracts that Support Adrenal Health

Siberian ginseng, Rhodiola rosea, Glycyrrhiza glabra, and Schizandra chinensis are all considered to be adaptogenic herbs. Adaptogens are substances that nonspecifically increase the resistance of stress and exerts a balancing effect on various systems in the body (immune, central nervous, etc).

All I know is it appears to be helping, and is certainly not hurting. 120 capsules runs $44 on Amazon (about 10% lower than direct buy from the maker).
