Judy’s Favorite Products

The following is a list of products I talk about in my blog posts, as well as ones I use and love.

VSL#3

VSL#3 is the best studied probiotic in the world.  It’s been involved in many clinical trials.  I had huge success with it when working with clients with inflammatory bowel disease, IBS and autism.

TRIPHALA

I wrote about the benefits of Triphala here. I’ve been taking it ever since I wrote that post, as have several family members and friends.  We all swear by it!

JARROW PREBIOTIC WITH FOS AND GOS

I talk about prebiotics in many posts. This is the one I am currently using.

FLORASSIST

FLORASSIST� Balance, 30 liquid vegetarian capsules

I mention Life Extension’s product, Florassist, in this post about phages. This is he only product I am aware of that uses phages to help reduce bad flora in the microbiome.

ALIGN B. INFANTIS PROBIOTIC

I mention this strain in several posts, including this one about treating depression with probiotics.  B. infantis may normalize inflammation that is the result of stress.

CURCUMIN

Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory but is poorly absorbed orally. Combining it with phosphlipids does improve absorption such as is found in Meriva.

GREEN TEA SUPPLEMENT

I have taken this for many years. Green tea has many proven health benefits from lowering cholesterol to improving brain function and protecting against Alzheimer’s.

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT

Polyphenols have been shown to boost levels of good bacteria in the gut, including Akkermansia, which I talk about in this blog post. Remember: Akkermansia seems to have glucose/insulin modulating properties and may be beneficial for weight loss.

CRANBERRY EXTRACT

Cranberry extract has also been shown to boost levels of good bacteria in the gut, including Akkermansia, which I talk about in this blog post.

CAYENNE (CAPSAICIN)

Capsaicin, from hot peppers like cayenne, has also been shown to boost levels of good bacteria in the gut, including Akkermansia, which I talk about in this blog post.

CUSTOM PROBIOTICS’ D-LACTATE FREE FORMULATION

All of Custom Probiotics products are superb. This blend is the ONLY one I have ever found that contains only strains of bacteria that do not produce d-lactate. I have written several posts about why this may be important for some people – for example, here.  I am using it right now to make myself yogurt, a cup of which I eat daily.

ROYAL JELLY WITH PROPOLIS

As I talk about in several posts, these bee products boost levels of good bacteria in the gut.

NutraBiome-Plus-Logo

The helminth, HDC, Hymenolepis diminuta cysticercoid, is available from the company, Biome Restoration Ltd, located in the UK.

VITALITE NOW’S PROBIOTIC/PREBIOTIC FORMULATION

Prevent Defense 60s_AngleA-labels-1200

A synbiotic – it contains both probiotics and prebiotics. I wrote about these particular strains in regards to fighting off antibiotic resistant bacteria, like MRSA.

IgG PROTECT (ORTHO MOLECULAR PRODUCTS)

Bovine IgG can help with everything from gut health to preventing you from the flu and colds. I wrote about it in this post, and have been using it ever since. Love it – this is a winner!

SACCHAROMYCES BOULARDII

As I’ve written about several times, the mycobiome – the yeasts found in our bodies – are associated with illness, not health. Saccromyces is basically a yeast eating yeast, so is a great way to keep things like Candida in check. More than that, it boosts gut immunity and acts as a probiotic, helping good bacteria to thrive. This is the product that I use every day!

OMEGA 3 (FISH OIL)

For over 20 years, my sons and I have taken 2-3 teaspoons per day.

BREAKING THE VICIOUS CYCLE BY ELAINE GOTTSCHALL

2018-10-23_17-32-07

When it comes to gut health, this is perhaps the single greatest book ever written. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet saved my son’s life, as well as countless others. Don’t be afraid to try this diet. It is NOT as hard as you think and it can change your life. I have written about the importance of this diet many times, for example, here.

WE BAND OF MOTHERS: AUTISM, MY SON AND THE SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET BY JUDY CHINITZ

This is my book, which was written to help parents successfully get children onto the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.  Writing it was a labor of love and a paean to Elaine Gottschall, author of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, my hero and my friend.  All proceeds go directly to charity – to the Autism Research Institute. If you, as a parent, are hesitating to use SCD, this book will help not only calm your fears, but will motivate you. If my son can heal, so can you and/or your children.
