You hear stuff about the gut microbiome all the time, and probiotics have been a rage for even longer. Then someone comes along and applies new science and technology to do something really revolutionary in terms of mega-high dose for a short regimen that’s actually designed to get to your colon quickly. That would be my biomedical engineering buddy Karl Seddon, in the UK, who developed Elixa Probiotic. Here’s the posting history on it and you can see many testimonials of great things at all of them:
- The New Science of Probiotics
- More Crazy Probiotics Stuff
- FODMAP Prebiotic Arms Dealing, Probiotic Mercenaries, and Uganda
Now, just like with most everything your mileage may vary, but I can say that the vast majority of reported results have been very positive and that I can’t recall any negative, only no effect noticed. Here’s the most recent testimonial, from Pam.
Thank you for your post mentioning Elixa probiotic. I have suffered from chronic diarrhea for over a year and endured a series of “cures” including colonoscopy, antibiotics, anti-fungals, restrictive diets, various probiotic and prebiotic concoctions… I elected to give Elixa a try and took two 6 day rounds back-to-back… on day 11…..”normalcy” returned…..spectacular…… I have not yet experimented with resistant starch but it is “on my list” thanks to your info,… love “free-the-animal”….!!

Update: Amongst other anecdotes in comments, here’s one with some particular authority behind it, from Jake.
Have done two rounds.
Karl and I have communicated a fair bit over this product and his professionalism is second to none.
I know degrees don’t = expertise, but I’ve got an MSc in Sports Nutrition, and I personally am a sub-elite athlete and coach elite and Olympic athletes every day so have a decent idea of what it looks like when the human body does or does not work…
…and this stuff is the real deal!!!!
