What are the supplements in the Kit?
- Paleo Starch - Contains two forms of resistant starch (RS) type II: organic green banana flour and organic potato starch powder. RS is a type of starch that is resistant to digestion, as enzymes in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract are ineffective against it. Once RS reaches the large intestine, it is fermented into short-chain fatty acids, which are used as fuel for both beneficial microbes and the cells of the intestinal lining.
- Aloe - This supplement contains 100% highly concentrated aloe vera powder. In fact, it takes 200 pounds of aloe vera gel to make one pound of this nourishing aloe extract! It is also prepared using a low-heat dehydration method with no filtering, which ensures that the plant’s beneficial components (long polysaccharide chains) and its natural makeup, remain intact as much as possible.
- Butyrate Balance - Butyrate is a special type of fat that functions as a “Postbiotic,” a compound produced by beneficial colonic bacteria, as a result of break-down fibers via fermentation. Butyrate Balance features CoreBiome™, a form of tributyrin (a triglyceride consisting of three molecules of butyrate). CoreBiome™ promotes gut health and immune function by modulating intestinal flora, promoting colon cell health, and supporting proper gut permeability.*
What are the benefits of the supplements in the Kit?
- Paleo Starch - Benefits GI health through its ability to support microbial balance and proper intestinal permeability and integrity. Additionally, this formula may help support optimal blood sugar and insulin metabolism, normal appetite, and cardiovascular health.*
- Aloe - May be beneficial for anyone wishing to maintain normal thyroid hormone levels, support healthy digestion, maintain normal bowel movements, support immune function, maintain blood sugar balance, and maintain a healthy stress response.*
- Butyrate Balance - Helps to support the integrity of the intestinal lining, healthy gut flora, and bowel function. Butyrate also supports regular bowel movements, which may be helpful for occasional constipation, contributes to healthy immune function, promotes a healthy inflammatory response in the gut, and serves as the primary fuel source for colon cells.*
How long can I take the supplements in the Kit?
Paleo Starch and Butyrate Balance can be taken for one month or long-term. Aloe can be taken for three to nine months.
Can the supplements be taken with thyroid medication?
Paleo Starch and Butyrate Balance should be taken at least 30 to 60 minutes away from thyroid medications. Aloe should be separated by at least one hour from thyroid medications. Research has shown that aloe can lead to a reduction in TSH when used over time, so it is recommended to test thyroid hormones every 30-90 days while using this supplement, to see if a medication adjustment is needed.*
As with any supplement or lifestyle change, testing your thyroid hormone levels every 30-90 days to see if a medication adjustment is needed, is recommended.
