$56.98 +tax
Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday evening

This is a therapeutic grade probiotic recommended for people on the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Diet.

According to their website: Bio-Kult is a unique multispecies, multistrain probiotic with 14 strains of beneficial bacteria. This means that Bio-Kult can deliver high concentrations of beneficial bacteria to the colonisation sites in the gut – and therefore be able to help a more diverse range of digestive disorders.

The beneficial bacteria in Bio-Kult are micro-encapsulated during the freeze drying process, which gives two main benefits:

1. They are protected from the harsh acid environment of the stomach and are therefore able to colonise the full length of the gastrointestinal tract.

2. The process allows Bio-Kult to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration. Bio-Kult can be used on a continuous basis or for a short period of time, e.g. when taking antibiotics

Ingredients: Probiotic cultures [Bacillus subtilis PXN 21, Bifidobacterium spp. (B. bifidum PXN 23, B. breve PXN 25, B. infantis PXN 27, B. longum PXN 30), Lactobacillus spp. (L. acidophilus PXN 35, L. delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus PXN 39, L. casei PXN 37, L. plantarum PXN 47, L. rhamnosus PXN 54, L. helveticus PXN 45, L. salivarius PXN 57), Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis PXN 63, Streptococcus thermophilus PXN 66], Cellulose (bulking agent), Vegetable Capsule (Hydroxypropylmethyl Cellulose).

Strength: Minimum 2 billion probiotic microorganisms per capsule (2x109 CFU/capsule), equivalent to 10 billion probiotic microorganisms per gram (1x1010 CFU/gram)

Storage: Store in a cool dry place - no need to refrigerate. Visit www.gapsdiet.com for dosage recommendations or use as directed by your health care practitioner or doctor.

Blue Ice Cod Liver Oil - Cinnamon Tingle Liquid

237 ml bottle

$41.19 +tax
Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday evening

Many of the great historical cultures had one sacred food which they relied on to ensure strong mind, body, and spirit: Fermented fish/fish liver oil. The Mighty Roman Soldier was given a daily ration of fermented fish oil. The Stoic Scandinavian Viking had a drum of fermenting cod livers outside the door of his home. Grandma always had a bottle of cod liver oil in the back cupboard. Nutrient assays, including vitamins A and D, for these fermented oils vary widely depending on methodology, lab and batch. Current science struggles to answer the questions we have on our sacred fermented foods. There are many naturally occurring metabolites and co-factors that make the issue of measuring natural nutrients difficult in the fermented oils. We do know that historical cultures liberally consumed these sacred foods to great benefit without today’s standardization of knowledge.

Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil CAPS

Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday evening

Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil in capsule form. We've found this can be easier to take than the liquid form. Cod Liver Oil is know to have high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, and very high levels of vitamin A and vitamin D. According to Blue Ice: "Fish oils have historically been fermented for extraction; back in the Roman empire days, Viking era and all the way up to the Mid 1850’s. Rendering was introduced during the mid 1850’s as a more efficient fish liver processing method. The livers yielded a much higher total oil volume and the process could be accomplished in several hours rather than several months. What they did not understand is the effects that heat had on the nutrients (their science was not ready to address this question) . As with all industrial models, the focus was on profitability, speed or turns and, marketability (taste)."

Champ Pro Plus

30 grams

$55.87 +tax
Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday evening
Dr. Louisa Williams formulated CHAMP Pro Plus out of frustration. None of the probiotics on the market tested well both clinically on her patients as well as energetically using her Matrix Reflex Testing method (similar to but more specific than kinesiology). The “CHAMP" is the only probiotic in the world that uses baobab as the prebiotic. Many other companies use prebiotics that is problematic such as inulin (allergenic and pharmaceutically-derived), FOS (sugary and the chicory source is allergenic, and again pharmaceutically processed), and potato starch (allergenic). In contrast, baobab fruit just drops from the baobab tree when it is ripe and is then easily ground into a powder—without the need for any pharmaceutical drugs or solvents.
 
It’s important to remember that prebiotics is vital. The excellent TSH foods can supply us with adequate probiotic bacteria, but for those foods to survive and thrive in our intestines we need the resistant starch in prebiotics that these beneficial bacteria can feed on. Additionally, a very small amount of aloe is included—it is strong so not much is needed, which breaks down to mannose in the gut to help support intercellular communication in the intestine. This can reduce the miscommunication that underlies (diagnosed or undiagnosed) autoimmune tendencies so common in the modern-day gut.
 
This product has recently been improved with more baobab powder!
  • Baobab prebiotic generates butyrate—the preferred fuel of the colon cells to optimize intestinal motility, heal the mucosa and villi, and reduce "leaky gut"
  • The Hadza in Africa eat this baobab powder and have a diverse and superior gut microbiome
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidus longum beneficial bacteria certified by ATCC Lab in Virginia
  • Aloe for better cellular signaling and communication
 

DOSAGE SUGGESTIONS

ADULTS – take 1 scoop (500 mg or ~ one-fourth of a teaspoon) mixed in a little water to dissolve, at
least ten minutes away from meals (best first thing in the morning), daily or every other day. Sensitive or
ill individuals may want to begin with a gentler dosage of less than 1 scoop, taken only one to three
times a week initially, and then build up over time. Those with particularly chronic intestinal gas,
discomfort and pain, constipation, or diarrhea often find that after the initial break-in gentle-dosing
period, 2 scoops a day (1000 mg or ~ one-half of a teaspoon) can be more effective at reducing these
symptoms.


INFANTS AND CHILDREN – 1 scoop taken approximately two times a week. If your child is ill and/
or very sensitive, begin with less than one scoop one time only, and then closely monitor his/her
symptoms (mood, energy and focus, bowel movements, etc.) in order to decide on the most appropriate
future individualized dose. However, for an acute infection when stronger measures can be appropriate,
a dosage of one scoop two times a day or more may be indicated as long as the child keeps improving.
Then taper off by slowly reducing this acute dosage when symptoms begin to abate.

Yukari Shiso Condiment

1 oz

$11.00
Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday evening

The red shiso leaves give the distinct red color and flavor to the Umeboshi Plums; they sit together for months in the pickling bucket. After the aging process is done, they take them out, sundry them, and make into a delightful condiment.

It has that bright tanginess from the plums and still assertive shiso flavor. Japanese people love to sprinkle Yukari onto their bowls of steamed rice. Our recent favorite is to sprinkle on melon or fig salads. The unique flavor and its natural color are unlike anything else!

Enjoy experimenting new matches of the flavors on your own!

Yume Boshi Umeboshi Salty Pickles

9 oz. jar

$24.00
Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday evening

Yume Boshi founder Ayako Iino grew up eating her mother's house made umeboshi pickles. She founded Yume Boshi in 2013 as the fruit on the ume plum trees became ripe in Northern California. Using traditional methods Ayako set to work transforming the tangy fruit she sources from small local orchards into pickles. Koume is a style of umeboshi pickle that is made with a different variety of ume plum. The fruit is smaller and more delicate. Soft, tangy, salty, bright red color --- that same taste but it can be used with less impact. Great for rice balls or for bento box. Umeboshi is a savory ume plum pickle eaten as a condiment for rice every day in Japan. She uses locally sourced plums and traditional methods of preparation. Ume plums are salted, flavored with red shiso leaves, and then dried under the California sun to make umeboshi. The ultimate companion for a bowl of plain steamed rice. (Mix in small amount as you wish.) Stronger taste than your usual pickle - a little goes a long way!?? Ingredients: ume plums, sea salt, red shiso leaves No need to refrigerate, but keep in cool place.
