Just finished Dr B's 2008 Guidelines. [Cool] As I could practically recite the 2005 years ago, the new items stuck out like an engorged... well [Razz] ... so Anyway, ol' Joe's all hot about this new Researched Nutritionals supp that improves energy levels. Anyone used it & have some commentary?
How $$ is it? And what the heck's a "prebiotic"?? (not a 'sic') see pg 29.

I just started it a few days ago, so can't really make a statement on how it works. I was told it will help with energy levels.

Go to the Researched Nutritionals site and you can read studies that have been done on it.

It's expensive for the first two months as you need to take double doses those two months. After that it's about $50/month.

For some reason, I had asked this question before when reading the guidelines and someone had said they researched the company and they weren't a BBB member (which I am not sure if that means anything with supplements and it could have been when the supp first came about ) - that's irrelevant here and could be a wrong recollection with my Lyme Brain.


.but they were a little skeptical. I know of one person who does use it and raves about it, she has incredible fatigue and happened to notice an improvement the first day.


From what I have researched it sounds promising and if Burrascano recommends it- heck I say go for it. Some of the NT factor packs are $25 for 15 packs of the supps , different combo varieties..

A prebiotic is ``a selectively fermented ingredient that allows specific changes, both in the composition and/or activity in the gastrointestinal microflora that confers benefits upon host well-being and health.''

Today, only 2 dietary nondigestible oligosaccharides fulfill all the criteria for prebiotic classification." Those 2 being fructooligosaccharides and galactooligosaccharides.

Use of the term other than in that manner is in
correct, since all oligosaccharides do not fit this definition, i.e. mannanoligosaccharides (MOS).

They may confer other positive benefits, but are minimally utilized by the comensural bacteria.

Typically, prebiotics are carbohydrates (such as oligosaccharides), but the definition does not preclude non-carbohydrates.

The most prevalent forms of prebiotics are nutritionally classed as soluble fiber. To some extent, many forms of dietary fiber exhibit some level of prebiotic effect.


Studies have demonstrated positive effects on calcium and other mineral absorption, immune system effectiveness, bowel pH, and intestinal regularity.


Correlations have also been made with other positive health factors, but more research is required.

The immediate addition of substantial quantities of prebiotics to the diet may result in a temporary increase in gas, bloating or bowel movement.

It has been argued that chronically low consumption of prebiotic-containing foods in the typical Western diet may exaggerate this effect.

Ive been taking it for a few months and i will say its one of the few supplements that ive noticed that actually does something.

It takes a couple weeks to notice anything but i went from having terrible unrelenting fatigue to not having that type of fatigue anymore.

Dont get me wrong. i still have fatigue but its not nearly as bad as it was. I would say it helped the fatigue roughly 50%.

I would definately reccomend it.

It can be kinda expensive for the first couple months. Each bottle is 58 bucks and for the first 2 months u need 2 bottles.
