Want to Do Your Gut and Body a HUGE Favor?
Fact: Most Americans don’t consume enough probiotics in their diet due to modern processed foods, soil depletion and more.
Why the Need for Probiotics?
I believe most people are in need of probiotic support.
Here’s why: Thanks to prescription antibiotics, high carbohydrate diets, fluoridated tap water, and high levels of stress, the good bacteria in our guts are being killed off, and our bodies can't replace them at the rate required for optimal health.†
In fact, I believe we need to avoid and reduce our consumption of these top 7 probiotic killers:
Top 7 Probiotics Killers
- Prescription antibiotics
- Excessive sugar intake
- Drinking tap water (chlorine and fluoride)
- GMO foods
- Eating too many whole grains (plus gluten)
- Emotional stress
- Exposure to toxins and pesticides
Meanwhile, “bad” bacteria can flourish while the “good” bacteria is killed off, leaving your system out of balance.
I believe the best way to approach this is to:
Eliminate foods and toxins that feed bad bacteria.
Start consuming probiotic-rich foods and supplements.†
Probiotics: Why They Are ImportantProbiotics are “good” bacteria that:
- Support healthy gut function and digestive health†
- Support healthy immune system function and a healthy GI tract†
- Support normal microflora in the gut and normal digestion†
Which Probiotic Supplement is Right for You?
While many companies sell probiotics, my belief is that the majority of products don’t live up to their marketing hype.
That’s because most probiotic supplements can be destroyed by stomach acid before they even get to the digestive tract.
We can’t be misled by products that claim to have billions upon billions of active cells per dose, when the reality is they deliver far fewer.
How to Pick a Probiotic Supplement
It’s important to note that there are different types of strains of probiotics. The health effects experienced by one probiotic may be completely different from the health benefits seen from another probiotic.
Certain strains of probiotics support a healthy immune system.† Others are great for digestion.†
That’s why it’s important to pick the right probiotic for your needs. It’s also wise to consume a wide range of probiotics in your food or supplements so that you’re covered. The more, the merrier.
I believe there are five specific things you want to consider when choosing a probiotic supplement in capsule form:
- Soil-Based Organisms and Shelf-Stable: Make sure your probiotic supplement has soil-based probiotics and is shelf-stable, meaning it doesn’t need to be refrigerated.
- High CFU Count: Choose a probiotic brand that has a higher number of probiotics, from at least 25 billion to 50 billion per serving.
- Strain Diversity: Select a probiotic supplement that has five or more probiotic strains.
- Survivability: Look for strains of Bacillus coagulans, Saccharomyces boulardii, Bacillus subtilis, and other cultures or formulas that have hardy probiotics that can make it to the gut and are able to colonize.
- Prebiotics: To support the growth of probiotics once they get into your system, it is essential that prebiotics are also included in the formula.
You’ll be thrilled to know that my SBO Probiotic meets the aforementioned criteria.

“Why am I so tired?”
One of the most common questions people ask me is: "Why am I so tired all the time?"
If you’ve ever had this same thought, I want to point out one area that is often overlooked, although there are many factors that can influence a person’s energy levels and their feeling “tired.”
I am talking about one of the most unaddressed areas: how stress affects the body, including the adrenals.
Fact: The effects of stress on the adrenals can affect up to an estimated 80 percent of people. That’s right. Four out of five people can struggle with this and aren’t even aware of it.
However, taking steps to support adrenal health can be simple and transformative. So, let's talk about how your adrenals work and how to begin supporting them.
Are Your Adrenals Stressed Out?
We live in a stress-filled society, and while we can tell ourselves that stress is “just a part of life,” our bodies don’t lie. They feel the effects of stress. In fact, if you’ve heard it said that you can’t fool Mother Nature, it’s true because there are natural biochemical bodily responses to stress—and they can make you feel tired.
The body typically responds to stress in three primary stages: when the body is alarmed, when the body tries to fight off stress and, finally, when the body is exhausted and just doesn’t have the fight left in it to deal normally with stress.
Initially, the body’s biochemistry tends to react to stress in an orderly fashion. Stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system, which is part of the autonomic nervous system, activates the secretion of hormones from endocrine glands and constricts both the blood vessels and the involuntary muscles of the body. When the endocrine glands are stimulated, then heart rate, glucose metabolism and oxygen consumption increase.
These responses can culminate into what’s known as the “fight-or-flight response.” The fight-or-flight response is a natural physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack or threat to survival.
Your Amazing Adrenal Glands
Your adrenal glands are two thumb-sized organs that sit above your kidneys. They're part of the endocrine system and are involved in many essential life functions. For example, your adrenal glands help produce more than 50 critical hormones, such as:
- Cortisol (the stress hormone)
Epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) hormones are released in direct response to the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the “fight-or-flight response” to stress or physical threats.
For example, the adrenal cortex, the outer layer of the adrenal gland, is responsible for the production of corticosteroids (also called adrenal steroids), including the well-known stress hormone cortisol.
Under conditions of stress, high amounts of cortisol are released—and chronic stress eventually depletes the body’s resources and its ability to adapt.
That’s when stress can really take a toll.
Excess adrenaline can wreak havoc on the human adrenals, digestive system, skin, heart and circulatory system, and even outlook.
Excess cortisol can adversely affect health, too.
Obviously, today when we’re under stress, we don’t run or fight as our ancestors did before us, yet we have still have adrenaline (and cortisol) coursing through our blood system.
This can lead to a number of stress-related outcomes, including adrenal imbalances, which are often ignored, but the effects can greatly interfere with life and health.
The crazy thing is millions of people are experiencing hormone issues associated with their adrenals right now, but don’t realize it.
Adrenal health is often overlooked by individuals and many health professionals alike.
The good news is that adrenal health can be addressed.
Support Adrenal Health on Three Fronts†
Here are some ways to support adrenal health†:
- Eliminate hard-to-digest foods and toxins from your diet. (Diet is a huge factor. Foods to avoid include: caffeine, sugar and sweeteners, processed and microwaved foods, and hydrogenated oils.)
- Consume probiotic-rich foods and supplements.†
- Nourish your adrenals with specific nutrients.†
We’ve spent years developing a specific adrenal support formula. In conjunction with a healthy diet and lifestyle, my ProBiome Rx Adrenal Restore helps support healthy adrenals.†
With our potent, high-quality blend of live probiotics and prebiotics, it is formulated to:
- support healthy nutrient absorption.†
- support a healthy immune system.†
- maintain healthy energy levels.†
- support healthy digestion and a healthy digestive system.†
But it’s important to choose probiotics wisely. While many companies sell probiotics, the majority of products don’t live up to the promises they make in their marketing.
That’s because many probiotic supplements are destroyed by the stomach acid before they even get to the digestive tract. So, we can’t be misled by products claiming to have “billions upon billions” of active cells per dose, especially when the reality is they deliver much less.
The Microbiome and Health
The microbiome is not new. It’s been around as long as humans have been. But its discovery is relatively new—pretty much the late 1990s—and it is an extremely popular discussion topic these days for its role in health, namely human development, immunity and nutrition. In fact, during the early 1990s, medical professionals believed that health emanated from the gut.
Before them, however, Hippocrates (460 – 370 B.C.), the Father of Medicine, said that all diseases begin in the gut.
They were right, but just couldn’t know then about the microbiome what we know today. And we keep learning more and more about the microbiome almost every day, but one thing’s for sure: the health of the microbiome determines our health.
But what is the microbiome? Technically, it is the genetic material of all the microbes that live inside and on the human body.
Those microbes can include bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses, and they number over 100 trillion strong—outnumbering our human cells ten to one. (Note: Newer research questions if the microbes are 10 times the number of our cells. However, agreement remains that our microbes still outnumber our cells, even if it isn’t a full 10 times more.)
The bacteria in the microbiome help digest food, regulate the immune system, protect against unhealthy bacteria, and produce vitamins and more.
Most of those microbes live in our gut, particularly the large intestine. Our gut microbiota—microorganisms living in the gut—number in the tens of trillions and include at least 1,000 different species of known bacteria with more than three million genes.
While we have approximately one-third of our gut microbiota in common with most people, two-thirds of it are specific to just us—our own individual microbial makeup.
Along those lines, the health of our gut microbes is foundational to our personal health. In fact, when you consider the major role that gut microbes play in the normal, healthy functioning of the body, it’s no wonder that gut microbes in and of themselves are considered an “organ” and can directly affect our brain health, immune health, our metabolic health and weight as well as healthy detoxification.†
Now, back to how the microbiome can be affected by stress:
Among other science, researchers from Ohio State University say that exposure to stress leads to changes in the composition, diversity and number of gut microorganisms, which can reduce the microbiome’s ability to function as it should.
Likewise, research in mice indicates that an increase in stress results in increases of harmful bacteria and a reduction in microbial diversity.†
Mental stress can also create a microbial imbalance in the gut.
In other words, stress is tough on our microbiome and our health.
This is where certain probiotics can come in.†
Four Keys to Choosing a Great Probiotic Supplement
I believe there are four specific things to consider when choosing a probiotic supplement to support your adrenals†:
- SBOs and Shelf-Stable: Make sure your probiotic supplement has soil-based probiotics and is shelf-stable, meaning it doesn’t need to be refrigerated.
- Strain Diversity: Search for a probiotic supplement that has five or more strains.
- Survivability: Look for strains such as Bacillus coagulans, Saccharomyces boulardii, Bacillus subtilis, Bifidobacteria, and other cultures or formulas that ensure probiotics make it to the gut and are able to colonize.†
- Prebiotics: To support the growth of probiotics once they get into your system, it's essential that prebiotics are also included in the formula.†
Probiome Rx Adrenal Restore
ProBiome Rx Adrenal Restore features:
- a strong probiotic blend, including: Saccharomyces boulardii, Bacillus clausii, Bacillus coagulans, and Bacillus subtilis.

With a Full-Spectrum Fermented Turmeric Blend, Organic Fermented Warming Botanical Blend, Organic Ashwagandha Extract and an Organic Fermented Bitter Botanical Blend, Ancient Apothecary Fermented Turmeric is specially formulated to support healthy joints and mobility as well as a healthy response to inflammation.†
What Sets Ancient Apothecary Herbals Apart?
Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbs are powered by fermentation—our own proprietary, patent-pending, dual-stage, live fermentation process.
What is fermentation and why is it important?
Fermentation is an ancient process used to break down food into more absorbable components.
Here are some key benefits of fermentation:
- Fermentation pre-digests nutrients and beneficial compounds into more accessible and bioavailable forms.
- In some instances, fermentation can actually make certain foods more edible and more digestible, such as roots, leaves, nuts, tubers, seeds and grains.
- Fermentation can increase the presence of probiotics in the food.
Each Ancient Apothecary Herbal formula is infused with Organic Essential Oils and CO2 extracts.
The Power of Essential Oils
Essential oils are often referred to as the “life blood” of plants and trees. They are the concentrated oils of herbs, plants and trees.
For example, it takes approximately 3,000 lemons to make one kilo of lemon essential oil, while one 15mL bottom of lemon essential oil takes about 75 lemons! To go deeper, there are nearly 300 drops in a 15mL bottle, so 1 drop of lemon essential oil is made by using ¼ of a whole lemon!
Likewise, 150 pounds of lavender is necessary for just one pound of pure lavender essential oil, while one 15mL bottle of lavender oil requires 27 square feet of lavender plants. With approximately 300 drops of lavender oil in a 15mL bottle, one drop equals nearly .09 square feet of lavender plants.
The bottom line: here’s a whole lot of beneficial plant life in essential oils.
These precious oils can be distilled or extracted using CO2 and bottled, and when steam distilled, essential oils keep the “frequency” that they had when they resided in the plant.
Additionally, essential oils provide lipo-soluble fractions of plants. Since plants contain both water- and fat-soluble active compounds, we believe it is important to consume a full spectrum of beneficial compounds. Fats and oils are beneficial for the effective delivery of key antioxidant compounds.
Therefore, essential oils infused into herbal formulas can help serve as a delivery system for botanicals.
Here’s the takeaway: Essential oils are some of Nature’s wonders!
That’s why you’ll find essential oils in each and every Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbs.
The Importance of Organic Herbs
It’s no secret that in conventionally grown foods and herbs, farmers often use a variety of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides synthetic fertilizers and many other "processing agents” which often remain in and on the food or herbs. Even washing these foods or herbs can’t get many of these off the produce.
Why? Because nearly 20 percent of the 17,000 (or more) pesticides in use today are known as systemic pesticides—those which reside inside the plant via its root system and have permeated the plant. That’s means they’re everywhere within the plants themselves and can’t be washed off.
To try to avoid these chemicals in and on our food, many people choose to go organic. That reason alone is enough to make going organic is all the rage these days.
But another important benefit of organic food and herbs is that, because they’re grown organically, these plants are often able to produce their own natural defenses against pests.
As a result, these plants can have some of the very compounds and natural defenses that we can and often should include in our diet.
That’s why you’ll find these health-supporting organic herbs in each and every Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbs.
PLUS, each Ancient Apothecary Herbal formula features an Organic Fermented Warming Botanical Blend of black pepper, ginger, long pepper and sprouted cumin.
In Ayurveda, black pepper, long pepper and ginger are tied to the Sanskrit word trikatu, meaning three spices or three peppers. Trikatu is an Ayurvedic blend of the fruits of black pepper, long pepper and the rhizomes of ginger.
Each Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbal formula also features an Organic Fermented Bitter Botanical Blend of milk thistle, dandelion and peppermint.
Bitter botanicals or "bitters" are historically regarded as beneficial.
By combining organic fermented botanicals, whole organic herbs and spices, hot water herbal extracts and lipo-soluble fractions, Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbal formulas feature a full-spectrum infusion of the best that Nature has to offer!
The Importance of Healthy Joints
The body is said to have 360 joints, although it’s a count that varies due to what is defined as a joint and a person’s age. For example, some joints fuse together over time. However, it’s safe to say that there are between 200 and 400 joints in the human body.
That means that there are hundreds of joints in the body, and you probably don’t even think about your body’s hundreds of joints—unless they’re not doing their jobs quite so well. Then not only do you think about them, but you also want to make sure they’re comfortable.
Joints need to be working correctly, too, because they have a lot of work to do. Your joints function like hinges at the point where two bones come together, and the truth is that you wouldn’t be able to bend, twist or even turn around easily without your joints.
Of course, bones are great for strength, but if we had only bones, then movement would be impossible. Nature solved this by dividing the skeleton into many bones and placing joints where bones meet.
Joints, also known as articulations, are strong connections that join the bones, teeth and cartilage of the body to one another. Each joint has a specialized shape and structure controlling the range of motion between the parts that it connects.
Healthy joints should move comfortably, but sometimes they don’t—for a variety of reasons.
Truth is, millions of Americans have occasional joint discomfort, and joint issues can happen to any joint in the body, but the larger, weight-bearing ones are the most common ones affected: the hips, the knees, etc. Why? They’re the ones that have a lifetime of stress put on them, and the more stress a joint is under, the more discomfort it can feel.
In short, joints are pretty amazing and super important to our health, well-being and movement. That’s why it’s so important to take care of them.
Turmeric, Curcuminoids, Curcumin and Turmerones
Turmeric, curcuminoids, curcumin and turmerones are not the same or interchangeable terms.
Here’s why: turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a distinctive yellow spice; curcuminoids are a family of active compounds within turmeric which includes curcumin;curcumin is part of curcuminoids—a small but potent, vastly studied and important part of turmeric; turmerones are also bioactive molecules found withinturmeric but haven’t been studied as much as curcumin has been.
With that foundation, let’s get started.
With a long track record (over 4,000 years) of health benefits, turmeric (Curcuma longa), a perennial herbaceous plant, supports a healthy response to inflammation.†
And here’s a powerful force behind turmeric: Curcumin.
In the 1970s, scientists found that the bright orange color in turmeric is due to its antioxidants within it via what’s called curcuminoid compounds, of which curcumin (which has been the subject of more than 2,000 published studies in the past few years alone) is believed to be the most potent.
In short, the yellow or orange pigment of turmeric, called curcumin, is significant.
There’s widespread interest in curcumin, the active compound found in the rhizome (underground stem) of turmeric, but turmerones and other active compounds in turmeric haven’t been as thoroughly explored.
Besides curcumin and turmerones, there are additionally over 200 unique compounds that have already been identified in turmeric, including 109 sesquiterpenes; 68 monoterpenes; 22 diarylheptanoids; 8 phenolic compounds, 5 diterpenes; 4 sterols; 3 triterpenes and 2 alkaloids,
You see, there’s a lot in turmeric!
Turmerones are bioactive molecules in turmeric which can also benefit health.
Curcumin and turmerones are not the same, but they both can offer benefits.
Turmeric, in general, provides many benefits, but the clinically studied turmeric extract (95% curcuminoids) in Fermented Turmeric is obtained from the dried rhizomes of Curcuma longa and standardized for minimum 95% curcuminoids. It has optimized composition of curcuminoids from rhizomes of turmeric and is among the most extensively studied and clinically documented.
But there’s even more goodness in Fermented Turmeric! Ancient Apothecary Fermented Turmeric also features ashwagandha in the form of Organic Ashwagandha Extract (Root and Leaf).
Often hailed for its stress-relieving effects, Ashwagandha truly has a long list of benefits, including helping to support normal joint function and overall joint health.†
In addition to the healthy joint benefits, the clinically studied ashwagandha ingredient in Fermented Turmeric can:
- Ashwagandha Root & Leaf Extract (10% withanolides):
- Supports a healthy response to stress†
- Supports healthy energy levels†
- Supports restful sleep†
- Supports healthy physical energy levels†
- Supports a positive outlook†
- Supports healthy mobility†
