We had an awesome turnout that was beyond capacity for the premiere ticket holders at PaleoFX this year: ‘Shifting Your Gut Microbiota and Your 100 Trillion Friends for Leanness and Fat Loss’.

Thank you for everyone that attended! The slides may be downloaded at TheGutInstitute.com (enter email).

I am considering with Matt Pepin, my Gut Guardians co-host, to send out a monthly Gut RxTracts with a compilation of the latest gut news, research abstracts, book reviews, and all things poop and gut related. How does that sound? I’d love to know which topics you find most interesting.

A couple of things I mentioned at PaleoFx:

10% of uBiome analysis, thanks Eli and Paul~!

Sources of chitin/chitosan for gut health and fat loss prebiotic effects
Fiber in cricket flour is 7% and contains chitin/chitosan
Pubmed studies on fat loss and chitin/chitosan

Sources of yacon in sugar free virgin chocolate in Raaka handcrafted bars (YUMMMM!) and 4 grams of yacon-FOS per half bar, thanks Bill~!
10% off ‘YACON10’ code

Prescript Assist, the only probiotic containing 2 strains of Bacteroides that is missing in nearly every study in overweight and obesity microbial signatures, one of the root problems in the obesity epidemic. This probiotic and other soil probiotics helped my family and I overcome gluten, dairy and other food intolerances so we could consume again on rare occasions without severe gut, brain or digestive issues.
The company just the other day announced their evolution to ENVIRO MEDICA (no longer Magnetic Clay)! I love it! Congratulations!!

AO Biome, soil probiotic topical spray: Nitrosomonas, live Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB). It produces more NO, nitric oxide, a vital signalling molecule important for not just athletic workouts and sex ahah.
“This living product is a first, not only for our company, but for the industry as a whole. We created it to counteract the damage that modern lifestyles and products have on the biome, which often lead to irritation, sensitivity, and more. Our patented beneficial bacteria is similar to a probiotic, and it works to enrich your skin’s natural environment, gently restoring harmony to the skin. Specifically, it actively converts the byproducts of our skin (such as sweat) into beneficial ingredients, leading to skin that looks and feels great. ”

Mark Sisson’s new soil based upgraded ultra high potency 10B CFU per cap — used by Eli Markstrom, Spartan warrior in uBiome self experiment.

The HENRY Bar~!! My kids designed an energy bar that they will actually eat that’s not full of non-Paleo junk. Thank you to my master tasters who gave it unanimous thumbs up — my sisters, best galpals, Matt Pepin, Dr Emily Dean, Robb Wolf and CSA MMA gym (Kieran). Nearly all organic and non-GMO, the Henry is full of goodness like our puppy which it’s named after. Check out TheGutInstitue.com later for more updates or contact me directly to get a box (I have some complimentary ones to send out!)

Abundant in wonderful ingredients (some are not part of 7 steps — dairy and nuts):

  • 17 grams isomalto-oligosaccharides (for fat loss, leanness and losing gut-leakiness) which is also found in fermented foods like natto, sake and fermented soybean sauce (bibimbab, jajiang noodles)
  • 16 grams pastured, grassfed whey protein
  • 10 grams carbs from 85% organic chocolate, cashew butter, almond butter, dates and quinoa crispies


  • Dr. Jonathan Chung

      Yes you absolutely must! 😉 I’d love to see you there! Michelle and Keith just do an excellent job. Keith and I used to be both in the pharmaceutical industry. I think it is great to offer solutions to modern health issues such as those highlighted at PaleoFx via diet, exercise, Crossfit, paleo snacks, microbiome, etc.
