Health & Wellness Supplements:

Prescript-Assist — a probiotic + prebiotic for the cultivation of beneficial gut flora

Cod Liver Oil — packed with Vitamin D, Vitamin A and Vit K2; this is a traditional foods supplement formulated by suggestions given by the late Dr. Weston A. Price

Perfect Supplements Desiccated Beef Liver — also packed with key, fat-soluble nutrients Vit D, A, and K2

HealthForce Vitamineral Green — A powder supplement that is great to add into smoothies; packed with greens, common herbs, sea veggies, enzymes, and probiotics.

Great Lakes Unflavored (pwdr) Gelatin — Great to help heal and strengthen the lining of your gut…  This product is Kosher and is beef-based.  I use it in tea (can’t really taste it) or to make home-made jello and/or panna cotta.  Instead of powdered gelatin, you can also make bone broths at home.
