Product Description

Size:60

Prescript-Assist® (P-A) is a next-generation combination of 29 probiotic microflora "Soil-Based-Organisms (SBOs)" uniquely combined with a humic/fulvic acid prebiotic that enhances SBO proliferation. Prescript-Assist's® microflora are Class-1 micro ecological units that are typical of those progressively found resident along the healthy human GI Tract. And, with more than 5 years in clinical development and testing*, Prescript-Assist remains one of the most effective probiotic supplements for restoring levels of gastrointestinal micro-flora compromised from antibiotics, medication, poor diet, stress, and digestive abnormalities. *Prescript-Assist Probiotic was the subject of a randomized, placebo controlled, double-blind clinical study (Clinical Therapeutics 2005; Vol 27, No. 6, Pgs.755-761.) A primary objective of probiotic therapy is to provide therapeutic resistance against pathogen colonization in the GI tract. Prescript-Assist® is unique in this regard as its constituent microflora are representative of those found resident along the healthy human GI tract (vs. most common probiotic products). Its beneficial/healthy microflora, coupled with a proprietary prebiotic, provide for robust maintenance/enhancement of gut microflora and resistance to pathogenesis. Prescript-Assist's® microflora arguably contribute to better health in their in-vitro and in-vivo demonstrated abilities to produce vital nutritional components (antioxidants, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, etc). Quite unlike most probiotics that incorporate easily degradable lactic acid based microorganisms, the utilization of SBO's in Prescript-Assist® provides for a pH resistant (able to survive trip through the stomach) and shelf stable (does not need refrigeration) product.

I bought these probiotics for IBS, but it didn't really make any difference. I tested my gut microbiome with Ubiome before, during and after using Prescript-Assist and was shocked to see that, apart from the common bacteroides found in every gut, not a single strain of bacteria listed on the box (Arthrobacter, Acinetobacter, Azotobacter, Bacillus, Brevibacterium, Kurthia, Myrothecium, Phanerochaete, Pseudomonas, Streptomyces) was found among my intestinal bacteria.

I also tested other probiotics based on lactobacillus and bifidobacterium, and these did increase considerably after a few weeks (from 0.5% to 4% of my gut flora depending on the sample). This makes me wonder if Prescript-Assist really contain any (live) probiotics.

Lactic acid bacteria like lactobacillus acidophilus can resist gastric acids and thrive in highly acidic environments, which is why they are so popular as probiotics supplements. But most other bacteria are killed by gastric acids. The main role of gastric acids is actually to protect us from pathogens, which our Paleolithic ancestors encountered all the time as hunters and scavengers. So if we want soil-based probiotics like Prescript-Assist to reach the intestines, it's important that the capsules be enterically coated, which they aren't (it's simple cellulose). When I noticed that, I tried to reduce the effects of stomach acidity by taking the capsules during or right after a meal, so that the food would have already absorbed most of the harshest acids. Apparently it didn't help.

What is ironic is that this particular brand of probiotics is advertised on their website as (I quote) "highly-resilient microflora". They even write: "Unlike other probiotics, Prescript-Assist has inherent viability.

I wanted to give my gut and body a good internal cleanse and therefore was looking to avoid the acidification / mucus build up in my gut which is so common with ongoing use of Lactobacillus acidophilus probotic products. Great for detoxification and for helping to repopulate my digestive system with 'human' bacteria. This product ticks the boxes for me.

I have been taking these Soil Probiotics for about 8 months as part of the GAPS Programme, and they have worked wonders for me, together with Bio Kult, to improve my gut dysfunction following long courses of antibiotics. I can highly recommend them.

Far too expensive! I do believe that probiotics should be rotated so buy lots of different kinds. Dont think i could afford these again though!!

These helped my stomach, I am very happy with them. I have tried a number of probiotic's on the market, but none were resolving my issues with resistant starch. Having use this for a number of weeks, it certainly help the condition. I can't say that it is cure the condition entirely, as I've made a number of other changes to my diet, however now that I have started by knees I guess I won't stop!
