It’s 1:56 A.M. It has been eight days and I am now down 20lbs.
Have I just discovered the next weight loss breakthrough?
For the past eight days my life has consisted of trying to take sips of water and then having to run to the bathroom.
I can’t eat, drink and have barely slept.
I feel like I’m going to die…literally.
I'm unsure exactly where or how, but I contracted some unknown pathogen that has liquefied my insides for eight straight days.
I've never been more afraid in my life.
If it wasn't for a close friend who's a Doctor I'm sure my outcome would have been much worse.
With a course of antibiotics, some IVs and time, I eventually recovered.
It was during this time that I began to dig into the research. Because, I vowed to do whatever I could to ensure this would never happen again.
What I discovered was much bigger than I could have ever imagined.
The Gut: A Brief Lesson
The human body essentially is a highly elaborate tube that starts with the mouth and ends at the rectum. The digestive tract, or gut, is the inside of the tube.
Until very recently this tube has been thought to be pretty straight forward. You put food in one end, nutrients get extracted, and waste comes out the other end.
But there is much more going on and it is literally affecting every aspect of your life. From your health to even your thoughts.
Our gut acts like our personal nuclear reactor. Taking food and converting into its molecular components we can absorb and use for energy.
It begins at our stomach, then on to the small intestine where through several enzymatic processes food gets broken down and most of the useful nutrients get absorbed.
The remaining material passes the Ileum and dumps into the large intestine, a.k.a the colon.
Most biology classes would teach you that the main job of the colon is to absorb water and ions, temporarily storing waste, but historically it was thought of as nothing more than a reservoir of toxins.
But this is where the plot thickens.
This is the home of your gut microbiome and is responsible for 80% of your immune system.
And here in a moment, I’m going to show you how it could be responsible for excess body fat, food sensitivities and even anxiety.
So, if you’ve ever suffered from bloating, stubborn body fat, skin breakouts, depressions, brain fog or food allergies.
The Bacteria-Filled Tube
(A.K.A. The Human)
Now, you’ve probably heard how certain bacteria can cause disease or even kill you.
But did you know that within your gut there are roughly 100 TRILLION living bacteria?
They out number human cells 10 to 1.
Scientists have identified 10,000 species of these microbes, each having their own DNA.
And what’s even more shocking is that bacterial genes can tell our own cells what to do.
We are essentially a superorganism: a collective of species, living cohesively alongside each other to survive.
This collective known as the microbiome, is so individually unique you could be identified with near fingerprint level success.
Nearly every single aspect of your health and well-being is related to your microbiome!
And it all started with this…
Russian Biologist’s Shocking Discovery
Rocks The Foundation Of Science & Medicine
We’ve all heard it one time or another. There’s always some Russian or Bulgarian secret that no one anywhere in the world has seen for decades, then, suddenly a random person from America discovers it.
This time it’s different.
Instead of some top-secret training or diet strategy, this is the work of a man who won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering phagocytic cells and their role in the human immune system.
It was Russian-born biologist and Nobel laureate Élie Mechnikov who first made the discovery that:
“The proper alteration of the intestinal flora could help battle diseases that had plagued humans for centuries.”
He reasoned that inflammation was merely a cellular response to external invaders.
And that if swallowing “bad” bacteria can make you sick, then swallowing “good” bacteria could make you healthier.
In his quest to improve human immunity, he discovered the true nature of our bodies natural defense system.
Here wrote “With the help of science, man can correct the imperfections of his nature.”
And since then, top scientists from around the world have caught on. In fact, since 2013 there have been many new discoveries that have forced everyone to re-think their approach to optimal health.
How Your Microbiome Keeps You
From Getting Fat & Sick
Imagine for a moment that your body is a factory.
Our organs represent the machinery that keeps production moving; extracting oxygen, filtering blood, removing toxins, synthesizing hormones.
Now some of these tasks are automated, but some require monitoring, maintenance and adjustment.
That’s where the microbiome comes in.
They help us determine what gets absorbed versus excreted and they distinguish between an infection versus harmless bacteria.
These symbiotic organisms have a lot of critical jobs:
- Convert sugars and fibers to short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) for energy
- Crowd out pathogens
- Digest food
- Help your body absorb nutrients, such as calcium and iron
- Maintain the integrity of the gut lining
- Metabolize drugs
- Modulate genes
- Neutralize cancer-causing compounds
- Produce digestive enzymes
- Synthesize B-complex vitamins (thiamine, folate, pyridoxine)
- Synthesize fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E & K)
- Synthesize hormones
But it’s not just digestion. They also tell our immune system how to respond and to what level of attack.
The Gut Wars of 2017
Your gut is in a constant battle. Fighting a war against pathogens, viruses and “bad” bacteria.
And then the modern diet makes matters even worse by flooding the microbiome with undigested particulate that’s like a ticking time bomb.
When these invaders enter the body through the gut and eventually the bloodstream, your immune system goes on the defense.
Ready to fight!
But when the bacteria and undigested food reaches the gut microbiome and into the bloodstream, your defense system can react to false alarms.
Thus, sending your immune system into overdrive and prompting widespread inflammation.
This chronic inflammation creates a cascade effect on the body. From auto-immune disorders, allergies, asthma, cancer and even dementia.
This internal civil-war has effects on our mood, libido, metabolism, immunity and even our perception of the world and the clarity of our thoughts.
‘The New-Frontier of Optimal Human Health’
It’s been dreamed about for decades. Nanobots that can go into the body and fix us from the inside out.
Imagine this nanotechnology detecting changes in our biochemistry, then quickly sending the signal to the rest of the troops to heal and protect us from invaders.
Acting like an army shielding us from the constant gut wars.
These armies of tiny biological robots are not science fiction. It’s through the development of Targeted Digestive Defense that we can create our own biological army, protecting, defending, and enhancing your metabolism.
Even the U.S. Navy has funded a project called "Engineering Probiotics that Improve Warfighter Performance by Maintaining Lean Body Mass and Inhibiting Anxiety."
By manipulating the gut bacteria, we have a big impact on things like depression and anxiety and we might be able to treat some of the most unmanageable human diseases.
Your microbiome is essentially acting like…
A Genetic Switchboard
Ever notice how some people never get sick when everyone else has the flu?
They could have been exposed to the same virus, live in the same house, but still not get sick.
Many diseases that run in families that we thought were primarily genetic, such as heart disease and some forms of cancer, turn out to be hugely influenced by gut bacteria.
In fact, which gut bacteria you end up with may be even more important than which genes you inherit.
Large-scale human microbiome studies are now finding that the genes from the microbiome are instructing essential enzymatic and metabolic processes throughout the body.
Essentially acting like a genetic switchboard. Turning “on” or turning “off” various human genes.
Not only is this mind blowing it’s also opened up a whole new world of possibilities. It’s beginning to explain why some inherited diseases don’t always affect every family member equally — even if they’re identical twins.
Your Genes Are NOT
No, your microbiome can’t change your eye color or make you taller.
But what it can do is heavily influence your immune system, inflammation response, cognition and metabolism.
With proper microbiome modulation you can put the odds back in your favor and turn “on” the right genes and turn “off” the bad ones.
These “Fat” Bugs Make It
Impossible To Lose Body Fat
We all know people who eat a lot of food, rarely exercise, and hardly gain a pound, and others who restrict calories, work out all the time, and still struggle with their weight.
There’s a barely understood, but powerful factor that makes some of us put on fat so easily, while it can protect others from hardly gaining a pound.
It all boils down to the F/B ratio, but more on that in a minute.
In a remarkable study conducted at Washington University in St. Louis they took gut bacteria from identical human twins, where one was lean and one was obese.
In order to identify why one twin had no trouble staying lean, while the other became obese they conducted an interesting experiment.
Researchers transferred some of the gut bacteria from the lean human twin into a sterile mouse.
They then transferred some of the gut bacteria from the obese human twin into a different sterile mouse.
The mice were fed the exact same diet, had the same exercise and exact same environment.
Here’s what happened.
Within weeks, in spite of all the variables being the same, the mouse with the “fat” bugs became obese.
And researchers have identified exactly what these “fat” bugs are and how they’re causing you to remain overweight in spite of diet and exercise.
But, that’s just the beginning of the experiment.
In order to determine if the reverse was true. They transplanted some of the “lean” microbiome into the obese mouse.
The now obese mouse slimmed down to their initial weight.
I’ve seen this with clients in the past. They’ve done everything by the book and still couldn’t get the results they so craved.
Usually this is due to some metabolic abnormality or hormonal deficiency, but it also could be due to their microbiome.
The bottom line: If you’re harboring “fat” microbes it will be an uphill battle to have lasting body composition changes.
The F/B Ratio:
The Power of “Fat” vs “Thin” Microbes
So what are “fat” bugs?
There are two prevalent bacteria groups in the human gut microbiome: Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes.
What’s been discovered is that the higher the ratio of Firmicutes the higher the inflammation and obesity.
In fact, researchers can now predict with 90% certainty if someone is obese or lean purely from looking at their microbiome. If you compare this to genetic testing, which only has a 60% accuracy, it’s pretty telling how critical it is to get your gut health under control.
What Firmicutes does is help regulate human metabolic genes, meaning they’re actually controlling genes that adversely affect your metabolism.
What researchers have found is that obese individuals have 20% more Firmicutes and 90% less Bacteroidetes.
Is Your Microbiome Making
You Sick, Fat, and Sad?
Have you ever had nervous thoughts, constant worry or just a sense of hopelessness?
I have to admit, I’ve experienced some anxiety and depression here and there throughout my life.
It’s a crippling feeling.
Right now, about 1 in 4 adults are suffering from a mood disorder.
Anxiety effects 40 million Americans and Depression is now the leading disability worldwide.
Numerous studies have found that people with anxiety and depression have high levels of systemic inflammation, an over-reactive stress response and an unhealthy microbiome.
The Feel-Good Superhighway
But how does your gut health improve your mood, fight depression and turn on your happy hormones?
Not only do our gut microbes help to digest and assimilate nutrients. They also determine the availability of essential building blocks for our feel-good hormone, serotonin.
When we have a specific species of bacteria in our microbiome we’ll have increasing levels of tryptophan.
This little molecule is converted directly into serotonin, and could be called the happiness-molecule.
As less tryptophan means less serotonin, and less serotonin means less happiness.
Low blood levels of tryptophan have been linked to depression and anxiety, but what’s even scarier is that populations with lower tryptophan levels have higher rates of suicide.
By having the correct species dominate in our microbiome not only do we increase tryptophan but the microbiome shields it from being destroyed.
And that’s not all that is affected.
The Surprising Truth About Food Allergies
Many people think that allergies or food intolerances is just something you're born with.
And they’re completely wrong.
Food tolerances and allergies are largely caused by an overly sensitive immune response.
This immune response is programmed from the foods we eat…and the undigested particles that make it to the microbiome.
It’s through this process of allowing undigested irritants to enter the large intestine to feed the bad bacteria, trigger inflammation and then over-stimulate the immune system that leads to food allergies.
These irritants can be anything from undigested carbohydrates, gluten, or casein.
This starts a vicious cycle that leads to systemic inflammation, sick mitochondria, and eventually disease.
The Science of Poop And
The Invention Of The Crapsule™
By now you may be wondering, “Kiefer, all this sounds amazing, but how do I change my microbiome?”
Well, one way is that you can go out and find someone who is lean, healthy and happy and see if they’d be a “microbiome” donor. That’s code for “hey bro, can I have some of your poop?” or as doctor’s are calling it fecal transplants.
These fecal transplants are all the rage right now.
In fact, they’ve gone so far as to put sh!t in a capsule. What I like to call a Crapsule™.
And for certain diseases like colitis, the effectiveness is pretty remarkable.
But a word of warning.
Along with the helpful microbes, you also transfer any fungi, viruses, and harmful strains of bacteria.
In fact, there has been some unexpected consequences with these fecal transplants.
Recipients who were previously lean and happy, seemed to inherit any metabolic abnormalities and mood disorders after the transplant.
Now I don’t know about you, but I’d prefer a much more targeted approach.
A Revolutionary Targeted Digestive Defense System Designed To Rebuild Your Gut Microbiome, Creating A Shield Of Optimal Human Health
Introducing Gut Shield™
A Radical New Way to Heal Your
Body from the Inside Out
Gut Shield was specifically designed to rebuild the microbiome using a revolutionary three step system.
Step 1: Diffuse
The first step is to shield the large intestine from the onslaught of irritants, you can think of them as “dirty bombs” that unless diffused, will continue to feed the bad bacteria, increase inflammation and ultimately make our mitochondria sick.
Gut Shield contains a proprietary blend of specific enzymes that ensure these irritants are fulling diffused before they reach the large intestine.
This step alone begins to communicate a completely different signal to your gut microbiome and starts the process of reshaping the landscape.
From this process, inflammation goes down, the microbiome no longer feels under attack and can begin to heal.
But this is just the first step.
Step 2: Re-colonize
The next step is to deliver specific bacteria species to re-colonize the microbiome. But you can’t just send in any species. You need a targeted approach with the specific strains of bacteria that’s been proven to survive through the stomach and small intestine that work cohesively together in humans, and have been clinically proven to have the desired health benefits.
We’ve identified 3 strains that act like a Navy Seal unit, giving our existing healthy bacteria the needed re-enforcements to successfully win the Gut War.
Step 3: Shield
The next step is critical, because without it, the bacteria we’ve delivered to the gut won’t be able to survive.
Gut Shield uses a specific type of pre-biotic that can’t be found in any other source, but mother’s milk.
It’s call GOS or galactooligosaccharides and I have to tell you, it took me two years to find a legitimate source of GOS.
In spite of suppliers from around the world claiming to have GOS, out of the 10 we tested, only ONE was real.
This process was so eye opening to me that these suppliers were constantly trying to pass off fructooligosaccharides (FOS) as the much more effective and much more expensive (GOS).
In fact, GOS is about 10 times more effective at colonizing these specific good bacteria.
The 3rd Dimension of
Maximum Athletic Performance
Most supplement companies focus on getting you gains at the cost of over-all health.
At Superhuman, we know that if we focus on over-all health, athletic performance always increases.
For example, by enhancing the central nuclear reactor of the body, the gut, you can then digest and assimilate all your nutrients more efficiently.
And if we can do it in a way that prevents inflammation, we get a downstream effect that’s simply profound.
This lowered inflammation allows for the mitochondria of your cells to begin to heal. Your central nervous system is now offloaded.
Allowing you to process food easier, recover from workouts faster, and just feel bulletproof.
But what’s most shocking is since your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system aren’t being over-activated all the time, your reaction time will go down and power output will go up.
Think about that for a minute.
By focusing on over-all health. You will have faster reflexes, recover faster, and be stronger in the gym.
The UGLY Truth About Probiotics
You can take all the probiotics you want, and still not fix your digestive problems.
Did you know that most probiotics take the “shit against the wall approach”?
When it comes to probiotics it seems the main way they differentiate their product is by adding more and more species of bacteria, or they try to wow you with the thud factor of billions of CFUs.
Here’s the truth.
Not all probiotic species are harmless. Some can actually compromise the immune system even if they’re otherwise benign.
By introducing too many species you can transfer harmful genes and overstimulate the immune system.
That’s why it’s key to take a more targeted approach.
You need to get the right bacteria, in the right amount, with bacteria species known to survive all the way through the extreme acidic environment of the gut. Then, after that, fuel it with a prebiotic that those species are known to thrive on.
And get this, most probiotics on store shelves are one, even two years old by the time you buy them.
Since these big companies produce product in massive batches to cut costs, and then store them in warehouses where they’re further pushed from one middle man to the next.
Not only do these products contain often unproven strains of bacteria that could do more harm than good. The microorganisms they do contain are dead on arrival.
That’s why we keep the Gut Shield batches so small.
Because we grow the bacteria for each batch, encapsulate it, and ensure you get it right away.
If we did what most supplement retailers do, most of the microorganisms would be dead from storing too much inventory for too long.
The bottom line: Dead probiotics don’t and can’t work.
And that’s not all. If you’re not getting enough of the proper prebiotic. It’s like trying to put out a fire with a garden hose.
And all this leads to products that are a complete waste of your time and hard earned money, but most importantly, robbing you from all the amazing health benefits that Gut Shield begins to provide starting in just 30 days.
The Two Year Journey To Bring You Gut Shield
Formulating dietary supplements based on the latest scientific research isn’t easy. Often times there is a lag of two to three years before the same ingredients used in studies are available from reputable sources to replicate the results found in the studies.
For me, Gut Shield wasn’t possible until we could source every enzyme, specific bacteria strain, and real galactooligosaccharides (not the supposed GOS 90% of suppliers are trying to pass off).
After my own experience of trying to rebuild my gut health after the worst bacterial infection of my life and then the toll the antibiotics took, I vowed to find a solution to shield myself from ever having to go through that pain again in my life.
I poured my heart and soul into the research uncovering which enzymes, bacteria strains, and prebiotics that would strengthen the immune system, lower inflammation, protect against food sensitivities and activate “lean” genes.
Simply put, supplementing with Gut Shield is even more important to your health than taking a daily multi-vitamin. Research has shown that 170 different diseases and health issues, including obesity is directly related to gut health.
Gut Shield is your ally in the constant gut battles that you’re exposed to everyday.
And as you’ve discovered from reading this page, it’s not as simple as just taking a probiotic and that’s why I simply had to develop Gut Shield.
Now before I show you how to get your own supply of Gut Shield, at a BIG discount, I want to make sure you’re fully aware of the true cost to your health. If you don’t act.
When gut imbalances are left unaddressed, it can start with common issues like bloating, indigestion, constipation and even acne. But ultimately leads to extreme daily discomfort, fatigue, weight gain, depression and creates a continual downward health spiral.
Remember, 80% of your immune system is tied to your microbiome. Leaving these imbalances unresolved can lead to a life of frustration, pain and illness.
I’m sure you can relate to the feeling of being sick, feeling run down and having to pass up life’s joys because you just don’t feel up to it. What is it worth to provide that extra layer of defense?
Ok, I Get It… How Much Does Gut Shield Cost?
Well, I’ll tell you — it doesn’t cost anywhere near as much as it should, considering the immense amount of trouble and expense we went to create it.
You can’t find Gut Shield for any amount in any nutrition store. Nor can you find anything even remotely similar, anywhere. This is a one-of-a-kind 3-Step System.
And think about it for a minute.
What would it be worth to you to:
- Prevent even ONE illness in the next year. Ensuring you don’t miss work, time with family or continually making progress in the gym.
- Get rid of the “fat” bugs allowing you to activate the “lean” genes and finally make consistent progress towards your fat loss goals.
- No longer experience all the big ups and down, allowing you to have a clearer, sharper mind and just feel happier.
- Process and absorb food with ease without digestive issues, allergies or stomach discomfort.
- Be shielded from potential invaders such as bad bacteria, harmful viruses or parasites.
- Help control your body’s inflammatory pathways that literally effect every cell of your body and increase the risk of virtually every disease.
- Have quicker reaction time, more strength and faster recovery all from having your central nervous system offloaded.
- And much more
