Why Dr. Ruscio Recommends it

  • A large body of research shows that probiotic supplementation leads to clinically meaningful improvements in a large number of conditions. This is not wishful thinking or speculation.
  • Probiotics work across a range of conditions because a healthy gut microbiota is foundational for your overall health. 

  • Imbalances in gut bacteria are common, creating a poorly calibrated immune system and leading to a host of inflammatory conditions.

  • This is the most studied type of probiotic with an impressive amount of research supporting its use.  
  • Not all probiotics are created equal. Independent lab testing validates the genetic identity and potency of my probiotic strains and ensures the product is hypoallergenic.

What the Research Shows

  1. Lactobacillus and bifidobacterium blends (Lacto-bifido blends) are the most well-researched category of probiotics, with over 500 trials assessing their validity. 

  2. Lacto-bifido probiotics promote optimal gastrointestinal function, a healthy inflammatory response and a healthy, balanced gut microbiota [1].

  3. In clinical trials Lacto-bifido probiotics have been shown to: 

    • Reduce depression and anxiety [2], [3], [4]. 

    • Improve IBS symptoms, including bloating, diarrhea, constipation and abdominal pain [5], [6], [7], [8, [9].

    • Improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and colitis) [10], [11]. 

    • Help to reduce bacterial overgrowths, gas production and abdominal pain in SIBO patients [12], [13], [14].

    • Reduce diarrhea, colic, irritability and respiratory infections in infants [15].

    • Be beneficial for treating vaginal infections, urinary tract infections, tooth decay, diabetes, cancers and more [16]. 

    • Help with lactose intolerance [17]. 

    • Combat ‘hidden SIBO’ or hydrogen sulfide SIBO, which is not yet able to be tested in routine clinical practice.  

Elemental Heal has definitely helped in the recovery of my gut, but even more importantly with my energy levels.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which is better, probiotic supplements or probiotic foods?

Diet can be a great source of probiotics if you are eating a lot of cultured and fermented foods. A challenge with diet is that it is difficult to obtain the same dose used in the research studies. Consider adding probiotic supplementation to your diet for optimal results.  

Are probiotics safe for children?

Researchers have found that probiotics are safe and have health benefits for pregnant moms, infants and kids. 

Should I take probiotics with or without food?

Probiotics can be taken with or without food. Do what’s easiest for you.

Can probiotics improve my mood?

Clinical trials have documented improvements in depression and anxiety after probiotic supplementation.

Can probiotics help me sleep better?

Several studies show that probiotics can help with sleep quality. In one study, medical students found that probiotics helped them sleep during times of exam stress. In other studies, probiotics have helped patients with IBS and depression to sleep better.

Can probiotics help with female hormone function?

Preliminary evidence shows that when bacterial diversity in the gut increases, health conditions associated with female hormone imbalance improve. Probiotics have been shown to improve inflammatory and hormonal markers in women with PCOS.

In my clinic, patients with female hormone conditions have very good results when prescribed probiotics and an herbal blend to balance female hormones.

Can probiotics help with weight loss?

While the research connection between probiotics and weight loss is not strong, evidence suggests a connection between certain types of bacteria overgrowth in SIBO and obesity. 

Can probiotics help with brain fog?

Brain fog isn’t usually studied in isolation but we can make some inferences from other studies where probiotics have improved cognition.  This includes probiotics improving cognitive function for patients with Alzheimer’s, bi-polar disorder and fibromyalgia.

Can probiotics help with allergies?

A systematic review of 15 clinical trials found that probiotics can improve dairy tolerance. Another meta-analysis of 22 randomized control trials concluded that probiotics can improve seasonal allergy.  

There is also data, albeit mixed, suggesting that probiotics given to children may prevent or reduce formation of allergy. 

Can probiotics help with thyroid function?

One study found participants who took a probiotic required less thyroid hormone replacement medication.  

Recent research shows that gut infections like SIBO and H. Pylori are strongly associated with hypothyroidism.  Probiotics can combat both SIBO and H. Pylori.
