Probiotic G.I. provides 10 billion CFU per capsule of the beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus salivarius, Lactobacillus casei, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis and Streptococcus thermophilus. Research indicates that these strains provide particular support for healthy immune balance within the G.I. tract. Beneficial microflora are crucial for proper gut associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) function and development.
The GALT helps protect intestinal mucosa from allergens and toxins and is a major component of the body’s immune system. It is estimated that more than 70% of the body’s B lymphocytes are found in the GALT. Probiotics are believed to support healthy GALT composition, and in turn, support barrier function, G.I. epithelial cell health and T cell function within the G.I. tract. Some probiotic strains may also modulate local production of cytokines in the G.I. epithelium. L. casei and B. lactis support healthy T cell activity and cytokine production in the intestine, at least in part by regulating transcription of genes that encode for cytokines. L. acidophilus promotes healthy cytokine production in the colon. Research also suggests that metabolites produced from Streptococcus thermophilus may cross the intestinal barrier to support healthy cytokine production and immune function.

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are a special type of fatty acids which are metabolized more fully for energy in the body. Normal fats and oils contain long-chain fatty acids (LCTs). When compared to these fatty acids, MCTs are much shorter in length thus resembling carbohydrates more than fat. As a result, they are more quickly absorbed by the body and metabolized as fuel.* Because of this quick metabolism, the calories in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use in the mitochondria, instead of being stored as fat.
MCTs have been shown to enhance thermogenesis (heat production) in the body, thereby promoting the burning of fat.* MCTs contain fewer calories than LCTs, are metabolized quicker and actually contribute to an enhanced metabolism to burn even more calories!*
MCT Oil USP™ can also be used as a substitute for conventional oils in salad dressings, sauces or cooking as a source of beneficial fatty acids. It is not recommended for use in frying due to its low boiling point.
MCT Oil USP™ may cause a mild laxative effect.
Take one tablespoon two to four times daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
WellBetX PGX with Mulberry blends all the benefits of PGX with an extract of mulberry leaves, is shown to diminish after-meal spikes in glucose and insulin by blocking certain enzymes that break down starches and sugars in the body.
PGX absorbs hundreds of times its weight in water over 1 to 2 hours and it expands in the digestive tract creating a highly viscous (thick) gelatinous material. Once hydrated, this complex creates a lasting sense of fullness and it greatly stabilizes blood sugar and appetite hormones. An adequate serving of PGX should make cutting calories much easier and helps to stabilize blood glucose levels effectively helping to prevent spikes and lows. For those who want to lose weight (using either a carbohydrate- or calorie-restricted diet), PGX provides effective weight management without suffering from hunger pangs.
PGX capsules also contain a special extract of mulberry leaves. Mulberry blocks the enzyme alpha glucodase. By inhibiting such enzymes, mulberry extract diminishes after-meal rises in both glucose and insulin levels.
Blocks carbohydrate absorption Helps normalize blood glucose levels Excellent source of dietary fibre Support for healthy weight loss
