[/fright]I've been eyeing this stuff for awhile. It's expensive - $7 a bottle but its also concentrated - they recommend a shot or two a day.

This is what they say about it

Farmhouse Culture Gut Shot is a probiotic rich beverage with a bold, savory taste. We make Gut Shot by fermenting organic veggies and then pressing them to release all the vibrant juices brimming with live active cultures. Gut Shot is a convenient way to help keep your gut healthy and well balanced.
I'm in So Cal for a wedding and am exhausted! So I picked up a bottle of gut shot with beets, ginger and sauerkraut.

And it actually works. It's rejuvenating - really quite rejuvenating. I don't get this affect from bottled sauerkraut but I also get it from Farmhouse Cultures "live sauerkraut" which is also very expensive.

I don't get the effect from sauerkraut that I make for some reason. I wish I could duplicate it - and I don't know why I can't. I've used their sauerkraut as a fermenting agent but it just doesn't do.

The same is true of kefir with one difference. I get a rejuvenating effect from home-made kefir but not from store bought kefir - two very different animals.

:
@Cort I have been eyeballing them too!! But they sound like they may taste horrible...
:)

They do, don't they.

I have a high tolerance for nasty tasting stuff but I think the beet is OK. The thing is that you take small sips - so it's not so bad.

Oh My gosh !!!!
As English is my second language , as I read the thread header: I understood (got shot - It worked (as in being shot by a bullet really works).
I was like "painful but if it cures you! " so I entered the thread!
That goes to tell you what kind of shit we are willing to try LOL.:D:D:D:D:D

1. I have been drinking Kevita Sparkling Probiotic drink which has some excellent strains: L Plantarum; Bacillus Coagulans; and L Rhamnosus. I like it b/c it's not too sugary, and the Kevita Tonic has even lower sugar...

2. GoodBelly Probiotic Juice Drink is Okay.... too sweet for me, and only one strain, I believe (l plantarum)

3. Trader Joe's Kefir is actually the best kefir that I've found for good strains:

L CASEI

L LACTIS
http://worldofenzymes.info/probiotics/lactococcus-lactis/

L ACIDOPHILUS
http://probiotics.org/l-acidohilus-benefits/

** L PLANTARUM - not typically in kefir
http://probiotics.org/l-plantarum/
http://worldofenzymes.info/probiotics/lactobacillus-plantarum/
  • reduces intestinal inflammation
  • HISTAMINE DEGRADING; reduces viral effects & allergies
  • reduces gut wall permeability
  • prokinetic agent, promotes weight loss
  • PSYCHOBIOTIC - improves ADD/ADHD; restores cognitive function, enhances memory
  • increase mucus in the intestines
  • oxalate degrading
  • lowers tyramine; no effect on histamine

** L RHAMNOSUS
http://probiotics.org/lactobacillus-gg-benefits/
  • DOWN-REGULATE HISTAMINE RECEPTORS
  • prokinetic agent & reduces diarrhea
  • lowers obesity
  • anti-inflammatory; lowers CRP
  • PSYCHOBIOTIC - GABA; vagal nerve

** B LONGUM - not typically in kefir
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bifidobacterium_longum#Immune_system_regulation
  • PSYCHOBIOTIC - reduces stress; vagal nerve
  • immune modulator; anti-oxident effect (from hayfever to minimizing flu/cold symptoms to lowering cancer tumor incidence & volume - notably, colorectal cancer)
  • anti-inflammatory effect on skin AND also reinforces skin barrier function (improves leaky gut??)
  • improves lactose tolerance & improves food allergies
  • scavenges free radicals
  • lowers serum cholesterol; improves cholesterol usage… unclear to me what exactly the mechanisms -> benefit(s) pathways
  • high colonic pH = colon cancer; b longum inhibits colon cancer by producing bile acid and cholesterol metabolites that lower intestinal pH
