Q&A WITH DR. TRIPP (NSP Chief Scientific Officer)
Q: What else helps with toxins?
A: Our new Detox Basics formula was designed to help with DAILY detoxification. Cleansing is only advised from time to time, but we can nourish the body with important nutrients (included in Detox Basics) every day to provide needed detox support:
Milk Thistle for liver detoxification support
Berberine IR for gut health support and to combat endotoxins
N-Acetyl-Cysteine to help upregulate critical cytochrome P450 enzymes, which help process potentially toxic compounds including drugs
Turmeric and Vitamin C to support the immune system
Bacillus coagulans produces lactic acid in the gut, which changes the microenvironment to support healthy microbiome balance
Eating cruciferous vegetables also helps because they assist in hormone balance and in the breakdown of toxins and excretion of heavy metals.
When we clean up the gut and resupply the “good guys,” we give our microbiome the best chance to not just survive, but thrive.
Q: What makes new NutriBiome Bacillus coagulans unique?
A: Bacillus coagulans is a unique, gut-friendly, spore-forming bacteria. Studies show that this strain provides relief from digestive upset, including occasional diarrhea, bloating and gas. It helps detoxify the microbiome and supports immune health. Interestingly, Bacillus coagulans is a heat-stable spore, so it’s got a higher survival rate in the stomach’s acidic environment than most probiotics. That makes Bacillus coagulans highly versatile and portable. I think people will really love it.

For those that suffer from allergies or sinus infections, you may get the impression that mucus is a bad thing. There is even OTC medicines to help remove the excess of mucus. However, what if I told you that mucus is very important and vital to our body and health?
Mucus plays a hugely important role in digestion, in addition to helping establish the overall health of other areas of your body.
In this article we’ll focus just on how mucus helps in mechanical digestion, and why you need to make sure that your body has a suitable amount.
Why does it help?
The first question to answer regarding mucus and its role in digestion is why mucus is a helpful substance. Mucus, though it doesn’t look like it, helps destroy bacteria and viruses, in addition to trapping particles, preventing water loss, lubricating the movement of materials through your body, and protects all the surfaces it touches from damage.
You have mucus in your mouth, in the form of saliva, and even in your eyes. The viscosity of the mucus depends on where it’s located in your body. In your nose, for examples, it’s thicker in order to fight against the potential viruses, dirt, and other irritants which can easily enter the nose. With your digestive tract, however, mucus is a bit different.
How does mucus help digestion?
Your stomach is lined by a protective layer of mucus, which is responsible for creating the enzymes that help your body digest proteins. Additionally, the mucus lining your stomach helps prevent your stomach lining from the negative effects of excessive exposure to acid or pepsin.
Now, as for your digestive tract specifically – mucus helps there as well. Since mucus works to lubricate items in your body for easy movement from one area of the body to another, it’s important to have enough in your intestinal tract.
The intestines can easily be perforated or otherwise harmed by sharp objects you’ve eaten that haven’t been completely ground down yet (potato chips, crackers, etc.). Mucus coats these objects so they flow through your intestines at a much more productive rate, ensuring that your body is able to process the food you eat as efficiently as possible.
Mucus from beginning to end:
Now that you can see how mucus is important in many different aspects of your health, let’s look at the process it plays from beginning to end in your digestive system.
First, the saliva in your mouth (a form of mucus) breaks down your food, fights bacteria in your mouth, and removes plaque from your teeth. Then the mucus lining your throat lubricates the food as it enters your stomach.
There, the protective mucus membrane on the lining of your stomach protects it from acid exposure. Once it’s done in your stomach, the food moves to your intestines where it’s once again coated in mucus to move freely through your entire digestive tract.
It may not be outwardly apparent, but without mucus it’s easy to see that our bodies wouldn’t function as well as they could.
Hoping to sip your way to a healthier and slimmer you? Then meal replacement shakes might just be your golden ticket. These shakes are low in calories and high in essential vitamins and minerals.
But, before you decide, you need to really understand what meal replacement shakes are and how they work. Read on to learn five things you need to know about meal replacement shakes before deciding if this weight-loss method is right for you.
1. Meal replacement shakes aren’t what you think they are.
You’ve seen your neighbor drinking them, and you’ve seen them advertised on TV showing people’s amazing before and after photos. But do you really understand what a meal replacement shake is? First off, they’re not going to magically help you shed 50 pounds (no matter what that inspiring commercial showed), they’re not meant to be used to starve yourself and they’re not protein shakes.
Meal replacement shakes do contain ample amounts of protein and other nutrients your body needs, and they can help you lose some weight, when used right. That means you drink a nutrient-rich shake in replacement of one or two meals a day to help you cut your calorie intake during that mealtime.
2. Successful meal replacement diets require more than drinking shakes.
You can’t drink a shake, wait 10 minutes, step on the scale and expect to see that you’ve lost a couple pounds. If you really want to lose weight, you have to eat less and exercise more than you currently are. Meal replacement shakes help with the first part. When you drink a shake packed with good nutrients, it’s less than eating a normal meal that’s typically filled with unneeded calories, fats and sugars. It should also keep you full longer so you don’t get the munchies before your next meal.
The exercising part, that’s on you. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recommends you exercise 150 minutes a week.
3. Meal replacement shakes are filling—when they’re made with the right ingredients.
A growling stomach too often keeps people from being able to lose weight. Feeling hungry, and having others hear your hunger pains, is what causes many of us to overeat during and in between meals. But, meal replacement shakes help keep you full and slim down. And the best meal replacement shakes contain a healthy trio of ingredients:
Protein—Helps you stay fuller for a longer time frame.
Fiber—Makes you feel full instantly.
(Good) Fat—Work with your body’s hormones to tell you to stop eating.
4. It’s an easy, convenient diet to follow.
Some people worry they won’t be able to follow the strict rules some diets require. But with meal replacement shake diets, it’s a pretty easy daily system to follow that doesn’t require calorie counting at every meal or reading every label of everything you cook with. Just replace one or two of your meals a day with a meal replacement shake, most choose breakfast or lunch, and then eat a healthy mid-afternoon snack and a balanced dinner.
Along with easy to follow, it’s also convenient. Wouldn’t you rather sleep longer and whip up a shake in five minutes or less in the morning that you can drink in the car on the way to work than wake up 20 minutes earlier to make and eat a hot, healthy breakfast?
5. You can choose whichever meal you want.
The best time to drink a meal replacement shake is whatever time you feel is best for you. Nobody knows your body better than you. Some people choose breakfast because they’re not super hungry in the morning and need something convenient, and shakes are light and filling, plus easy to make and take. Others pick lunch so they’re not tempted to get a calorie-filled, drive-thru meal on their 30-minute lunch break or for dinner as a post-workout source of protein that supports muscle repair and recovery. It’s up to you to decide which meal or meals you want to replace with a shake.
If you’ve decided to try meal replacement shakes, then you need some delicious, nutrient-dense shakes to drink. Check out our favorite shake recipes that give you a healthy, well-balanced meal replacement option and don’t skimp on the flavor.
Food alone may not provide sufficient micronutrients for preventing deficiency.
This study from the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition analyzed 70 athlete’s diets. Every single diet was deficient in at least three nutrients. Some diets were missing up to fifteen nutrients! Another study they performed showed that people following one of four popular diet plans (including Atkins, South Beach, and the DASH diet) were also very likely to be micronutrient deficient, particularly in six key micronutrients:
Similarly, the United States Department of Agriculture says the majority of Americans are deficient in many of the same nutrients and are not meeting the required daily amount of things like vitamin E, folate, calcium and magnesium.
So how do you know if you’re deficient? First of all, if you’re not eating A LOT of fruits and vegetables, especially greens, then you are probably deficient in a lot of these areas. There are also many different symptoms that could tell you you are deficient in some critical nutrient. Here are 7 of them:
1. Poor Night Vision
Vitamin A, known as retinol, is essential for promoting good vision and overall eye health. It also helps to maintain healthy skin and soft tissues throughout the body.
2. Cracks at the Corners of the Mouth
This is more likely to occur for those following vegan and vegetarian diets because it’s harder to get sufficient zinc, iron and B12.
3. Sores or Discoloration of the Mouth and Tongue
Water-soluble B-vitamins are essential for the health of the mouth and tongue. Unfortunately, the body doesn’t store them, so we have to constantly replenish them.
4. Weak, Spotted or Ridged Nails
These are common signs of a deficiency in zinc, an important trace mineral needed for the proper function of the immune system. Zinc also serves an important role in cell division and growth.
5. Poor Blood Clotting
Essential for normal blood clotting, vitamin K also plays a vital role in bone mineralization and cell growth. Lack of vitamin K can result in bruising, frequent nosebleeds and brittle bones.
6. Weak Muscles and Bones
In advanced cases it’s called rickets (for children) or osteomalacia (for adults), but it boils down to a deficiency in vitamin D, an essential nutrient for growth, health and maintenance of the structural system.
7. Frequent Cramps in the lower legs or ‘Restless Leg’
Magnesium, calcium and potassium support proper muscle development and growth. Lack of these important nutrients can cause persistent discomfort in the feet, calves and back of the leg.
