Since 80% of our immune system lies in the gut (digestive system), it’s absolutely crucial that we keep it healthy. One way to do that is by taking probiotics daily. A healthy GI tract is vital for optimum health. Why do I love PB Assist probiotics so much? Because of its unique double-layer pre- and probiotic delivery system that provides a shortchain FOS (fructooligosaccharides) pre-biotic fiber in the outer capsule and a time-release inner capsule providing active probiotic cultures.

Top Uses for Probiotics:

Immune boost, Flatulence, Constipation or diarrhea, Malabsorption, Irritable Bowel, Compromised immune system, Leaky gut, Allergies, Autoimmune issues, Anxious feelings, Depressed feelings, Mental issues, Infections

How to Use:

Take one double-layer capsule 3 times daily with food for 10 days, then go down to 1-2 a day for maintenance.


Take one packet PB Assist® Jr once per day.

Terrazyme Digestive Enzymes


Dietitians will tell you, “You are not what you eat, you are what you absorb.” People can eat healthy foods all day long, but if they’re not breaking down those foods properly, then they’re not absorbing all the nutrients they could be getting from those foods. Unfortunately, our gut health has been compromised from a variety of factors. This is why, more than ever, most people need digestive enzymes to help break down their foods to help digest them properly. 

TerraZyme® Digestive Enzyme Complex is a proprietary blend of active whole-food enzymes and supporting cofactors that are often deficient in cooked, processed, and preservative-laden foods. The powerful combination of digestive enzymes found in TerraZyme® supports the body’s constant production of enzymes critical for healthy biochemical unctions, including healthy digestion of food nutrients and cellular metabolism of nutrients to energy. TerraZyme® includes a variety of whole-food enzymes that help with the digestion of proteins, fats, complex carbohydrates, sugars, and fiber.

How to Use:

Take 1-3 capsules with meals throughout the day.

If your meal includes lots of fresh, raw foods, take one capsule.

If your meal includes highly processed, cooked foods or food products known to cause specific GI discomfort, take 2-3 capsules with meal.
