Why Dr. Ruscio, DC Recommends it
- These are the core supplements I recommend for step 2 of the Great-In-8 protocol: the support step. For those who don’t feel 100% better after step 1 (resetting diet and lifestyle), introducing these supplements is often the extra push they need to get there.
A large body of research shows that probiotic supplementation leads to clinically meaningful improvements in a host of health issues, with benefits within and beyond the gut*.
Probiotics work across a range of conditions because a healthy gut microbiota is foundational for your overall health.*
Foundational gut support can lead to improvements in everything from bloating and constipation to brain fog, fatigue, skin issues, and more.*
Many people don’t seem to achieve balance in their microbiota with just one category of probiotic. Research supports the benefits of different types of probiotics, and I have seen the best results with patients who combine lacto-bifido bacteria, friendly yeasts and soil microorganisms together.
Whole adrenal, adrenal cortex, and adaptogenic herbs may have a positive impact on gut healing.*
Digestive enzymes and HCl can help to support the digestive process and reduce GI symptoms.*
Not all supplements are created equal. Independent lab testing validates the genetic identity and potency of my probiotic strains and ensures the products are hypoallergenic.
What the Research Shows
- When multi-species probiotics were compared with single species of probiotics for IBS treatment, the multi-species probiotics were more effective [1, 2, 3].
In a meta-analysis of studies using probiotics to treat constipation, multi-species probiotics were also found to yield better results .
Another meta-analysis found that multiple species of probiotics were more effective than single species in reducing depressive symptoms (5).
High-quality studies show probiotics such as Lactobacillus and bifidobacterium improve irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms including bloating, abdominal pain, gas and disrupted bowel movements [6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13].
The probiotic Saccharomyces Boulardii (a helpful yeast) is particularly effective at preventing antibiotic-associated and IBS-related diarrhea [14, 15, 16].
A randomized controlled trial involving 80 patients with mild, intermittent constipation found that 7 weeks of soil-based probiotics (bacillus coagulans) led to improved gut transit time, more complete bowel movements, and less abdominal discomfort (19).
Probiotics may improve non-digestive symptoms common in those with IBS, such as fatigue [20, 21], joint or body pain [22, 23], and brain fog .
It’s been suggested probiotics might be contraindicated in SIBO because of excessive bacterial growth. This is NOT the case and probiotics can be highly effective in treating SIBO — more so even than antibiotics. [25, 26, 27].
Probiotics may reduce the need for thyroid medication and reduce fatigue in hypothyroid patients . This is likely because probiotics fight H. pylori and SIBO, both strongly associated with hypothyroidism.
Probiotics, including soil-based probiotics, can help a leaky gut (damage to your gut lining) [29, 30, 31, 32, 33].
Probiotics can be helpful in the treatment of reflux and GERD .
Probiotics may be helpful in preventing urinary tract infections and vaginal infections in women [35, 36].
Probiotics decrease oral pathogens that cause cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease and may be beneficial for maintenance of oral health .
Significant mood improvements have been noted in those with mild to moderate depressive symptoms who take probiotics [38, 39].There is also limited data showing anxiety can be improved from probiotics [40, 41].
Preliminary evidence suggests probiotics may help with fatigue-related “coherence” (brain fog), in people with IBS .
Several studies show that probiotics may help improve sleep quality [45, 46, 47, 48, 49].
Probiotics may help with dairy tolerance , non-celiac gluten sensitivity [51, 52], and seasonal allergies   .
Clinical trials found improvements when probiotic supplements were used to treat dermatitis and acne [56, 57, 58, 59].
The adaptogenic herbs eleuthero and ashwagandha may help to reduce fatigue .
Adrenal supportive herbs may help to balance the gut microbiome .
Digestive enzyme replacement has been shown to help improve digestive concerns like lactose intolerance or malabsorption [62, 63].

Frequently Asked Questions
When should I introduce these gut support supplements into my protocol?
The Gut Support Kit is designed to be used in step 2 of the Great-In-8 program outlined in my book, Healthy Gut, Healthy You: essentially, when you’ve reset your diet and improved lifestyle factors like exercise and sleep, but are still not feeling your best.
Do I need to take all the supplements?
These gut supportive supplements all serve a unique purpose, and their benefits and effects may complement each other. For well-rounded support, we recommend taking advantage of all of the supplements in the kit. If you’re someone who tends to be more sensitive to new supplements, you may choose to introduce them one at a time, rather than all at once.
Can I use these supplements if I’m not doing the Great-In-8 program?
Absolutely! Many people find that just introducing this combination of supplements, alongside diet and lifestyle improvements, is enough to resolve their symptoms and make them feel great.
