Orthobiotic

Orthobiotic

Dietary Needs:
None

Orthomolecular's tagline is "because efficacy matters". It was not until we started using their products in our practice that our efficacy in getting people well fast sky rocketed. This is the single best probiotic available today. It is a multistrain probiotic (not just one or two or three strains) and includes saccharomyces boulardii, which is a yeast-eating strain of probiotics. Each strain of probiotic in Orthobiotic has a slightly different profile to maximize the environment for strains already in the gut. Probiotics are an essential part of wellness for anyone with autoimmune issues, intentinal problems, or anyone who take birth control pills or antidepressants. Whole Journey Select product a million times over.  Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Consult your health care practitioner or physician prior to starting a new supplement.

Barlean's Omega Swirl

Barlean's Omega Swirl

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

We don't know how they did it, but Barlean's created the tastiest way to get your fish oil on the planet. This is a MUST HAVE for anyone with kids who will not take pills. Gone are those days where your grandmother made you take spoonfuls of smelly cod liver oil. Now you can actually look forward to taking your fish oil in the form of a sweet treat! Omega swirl offers a variety of flavors and oils (flax and evening primrose too) mixed into a sweet, fruity delicious creamy product. They sweeten their omega swirl naturally with xylitol (which we love because it is a sugar alcohol that comes from the birch tree that does not effect blood sugar). You can mix it in smoothies, yogurt, hot cereal or simply take a spoonful of it. We especially love the Orange Cream flavor. It tastes just like the orange creamsicles from the icecream truck! This stuff is pure magic and certainly worth a try! TWJ select product.

Bragg's Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Bragg's Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Every household in America should have a bottle of this in the fridge. It is truly a healing and near magical substance. Bragg's raw apple cider vinegar is nature's best cure for acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It can help stop acid reflux within 3 weeks of taking 1 tablespoon daily mixed with 4 ounces of water by shifting the acid-alkaline balance of your body chemistry to neutral (hence how it neurtralizes acid). Raw apple cider vinegar is the only vinegar that alkalizes the human body, whereas all of other vinegars are acidic. Another enormous benefit of it is that it helps our bodies to produce more hydrochloric acid which is so essential for detoxification and digestion. After the age of 50, we produce less and less HCL so we need to add it back and this is an easy way to do that by simply working it in your diet. We also love apple cider vinegar to draw toxins out of the skin so feel free to add 1/2 cup to a warm bath for skin issues. Bragg's is our favorite company because their acv is raw, unheated, unfiltered, unpasteurized and organic. It also contains the "mother" of the vinegar, which occurs naturally as strand-like enzymes of connected protein molecules. If we had a double select rating, they would get it!!!
