VSL #3 Probiotic - Capsules

The VSL#3 capsules contain 112.5 billion live bacteria each. The bottle contains 60 capsules.

VSL #3 is a potent probiotic medical food, and it has great reviews on Amazon. In order for it to be effective, it need proper storage, at the correct temperatures. This seller stores it in a refrigerator, and ships it in a cold pack. This is the best way to ensure bacteria viability. I recommend you to choose the expedited shipping, as it is safer, even if the seller uses a cold pack.

Milk Bottle - Photo Credit: Nick PiggottRaw milk is getting a lot of public attention lately, because commercially available milk is linked to health problems. Is it safe to drink raw milk though? Why is raw milk better than pasteurized? What is the difference between raw and pasteurized milk, and what is UHT milk? 

The increasing interest in drinking raw milk is legitimate, however the real problem might not be the pasteurization of milk, but the ultra pasteurization. Raw milk has proved to have great health benefits, yet the legislation doesn't allow its distribution, because of the risks of infection with bacteria. 

Acacia Gum - Heather's Tummy Prebiotic Fiber Organic

Gum Arabic is probably one of the most underestimated foods. Maybe because we use it mostly as a stabilizer in the food industry, and we think that, as most of the stabilizer, it's there only to enhance the final product, and it is not an essential food. This is so far from truth. Gum Arabic, or Acacia gum, as it is also known, or E414, as it appears on many product labels, is a great food, that can improve everyone's life. It is one of the foods with the greatest content of soluble fiber, and is used by an increasing number of people to treat, IBS, diarrhea, constipation, reduce cholesterol, and even help with weight loss.
