Pure Healthland Advanced Probiotic Gastrointestinal Support Review
Today the spotlight falls on a product for IBS symptom relief and management called Advanced Probiotic Gastrointestinal Support. The manufacturer, Pure Healthland, says that their probiotic formula is a maximum strength one designed to improve digestive health, and relieve cramps and pains. It should also increase energy levels and help speed up fat loss.
IBS and other digestive ailments are often intrinsically linked to an imbalance of gut flora, allowing bad bacterial strains to run rampant and colonise the gut. It means that in the large intestine in particular, food cannot be broken down properly. As a result, immunity is affected because the body does not get its uptake of nutrients.
Added to this, these chunks of food then make their way to the lower intestine, where they languish and ferment. As the body is unable to pass it out on time, the fermentation leads to gas, bloating and cramps. It also leads to sugar conversion which, if not used, is stored by the body as fat. Therefore, it makes sense for a manufacturer to assert that their product can potentially also help with fat loss and immunity. However, it all depends on the adequacy of the formula, and which probiotics and individual is actually missing. It may also be that in addition, an individual needs to take enzyme supplements.
Each serving contains 5.75 billion organisms consisting of:
- DE 111 (Bacillus Subtillis)
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Lactobacillus casei
- Bifidobacterium longum
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Lactobacilus plantarum
- Bifidobacterium breve
Most applicably, these bacteria help you combat the effect of antibiotics which destroy the flora balance. Additionally, bad bacteria can be antibiotic resistant, and these probiotics will tackle this. These bacteria also aid liver and kidney function and help with colitis.
Lactobacillus acidophilus and all the strands in the lactobacillus family lower cholesterol, increase immunity and fight fatigue and aging. They help break down and speed up fermenting in the gut so nutrients can be absorbed. Bifidobacterium longum in particular increases the acidity of the digestive tract, which helps curb the growth of harmful bacteria.
Although the manufacturer says this is a maximum strength product, there are others with 10 billion or more cultures. The actual difference in this product is the various cultures selected – the preparation includes more than 1 or 2 strands of probiotics.
Take 1, 2 or 3 capsules a day depending on how bad your symptoms are. We recommend that if you have an immune or autoimmune condition, are pregnant or are breastfeeding, you should consult your doctor first.
You can buy a bottle of 60 capsules for $22.99 on the manufacturer website and for $17.09 on Amazon. Certain other retailers are offering incentive discounts if you buy two or more bottles.
Possible Side Effects
Unfortunately, this product is made in a factory handling nuts, soy, wheat, eggs, milk, fish and shellfish. If you have allergies, do note that trace amounts of these allergens may be present.
Probiotics are safe for use but sometimes, it may stimulate your gut to the extent that some symptoms become mildly worse before improving. See a doctor if this persists for longer than 3 days.
The product is not suitable for the under-18, unless a doctor has approved it. The same is true for pregnant and breastfeeding women – the risks are minimal but do see a doctor first. Do not overdose on these capsules.
Pure Healthland offers a 100% no-risk promise. You can get your money back within 60 days from the date of purchase. Email the company with your proof of purchase and the exact product you bought. When they received your bottles, you’ll get your refund, minus the shipping costs.
Pure Healthland Non-GMO Advanced Probiotic Gastrointestinal Support – The Bottom Line
The product gets a number of positive reviews, and this is likely due to the high culture count added to the varied strands, which produce results. The positive reviews do not relate to fat loss, but to improved levels of digestive discomfort. It is likely that improved energy levels will follow, as sluggishness in the gut often contributes to feelings of heaviness and lethargy.
Remember that individual results will be based on the baseline probiotic presence in your gut. Everyone’s is different. You may also be lacking enzymes – if, for example, you are taking this product but dairy or wheat still makes you suffer, one major cause could be that you need lactase or amylase. Look for a product incorporating enzymes and/or an anti-inflammatory agent for the colon.
