never thought i would see PA on SD. this is too healthy (at least the older formula was). I am actually using the newer formulation now. the original formulation years ago was the best probiotic that i have used for GI infections (small intestinal).

Some of the users with negative reviews on Amazon state the strains are different and no longer have the same theraupetic effects. I used PA for candida and bacterial overgrowth recommended by my M.D. i also have parasites. I had done CDSA, Organic acids, SIBO, heavy metals, methylation, 23andme even, etc. Bacillus subtilis is supposed to be the most helpful because they secrete peptides/their own antibiotics while in transit. (look at the journal: The use of bacterial spore formers as probiotics

Aside from just being a high quality SBO which is the main reason, what I liked most about the old Prescript Assist was that it does not have Streptococcus like most other popular probiotic that i have tried like VSL3, garden of life, renew life.

Streptomyces microbiota is natural antibiotic grows in the soil. Streptomyces was in Prescript-Assist formula since 2010. And we are proud of these developments and the ability to be able to offer to our customers.

You can google this information:
http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/documents/...study-pdf/

"Many of the most important antibiotics used in hospitals around the world come from Streptomyces bacteria. Recent discoveries have shown that Streptomyces could also be the source of new antibiotics needed to fight MRSA and other infections that are resistant to commonly-used medicines. The bacteria could provide new anti-fungal and anti-parasite drugs for people and livestock, as well as compounds used to fight cancer and during transplant operations. Much of our current understanding of Streptomyces biology and its potential for innovative new medicines and other products stems from research supported in whole or in part by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). As a result, BBSRC investment in Streptomyces genetics research since the 1960s has made and continues to make a significant impact on the UK economy and on human and animal health. It has enabled the creation of five spinout companies founded by Streptomyces researchers, including one that was sold for $190m (~£120m) and another which established a $195m (~£123m) licensing deal. BBSRC funding also supported a highly skilled workforce in the UK and internationally, allowing researchers to gain new knowledge and skills. For instance, many of those who worked on Streptomyces at the John Innes Centre has since moved on to senior positions in companies and academic institutions around the world. Streptomyces research continues to support the pharmaceuticals industry. When the Streptomyces genome was decoded in 2001 it revealed that there were many previously-unknown potentially bioactive substances and novel pathways such as new antibiotics. According to an independent study, these could be worth around £240 million per year to UK industry. Such new drugs are needed to help doctors treat people with life-threatening MRSA and other 'super-bug' infections. New discoveries and innovative techniques from research into Streptomyces are helping to improve industrial processes. Even a one percent improvement in productivity could save the UK pharmaceutical industry around £45m annually in research and development costs.

I'm sure those bad reviews are from Enviromedica company (dispute between 2companies), those are not real reviews, and I confirmed they are both same products, just changed label and ingredient texts by FDA requires

thanks for posting this deal and reply. Did not know about the fake reviews. I bought the no pea formula in January on Amazon and will order the pea version now.
this was the seller. Sold by: Safer Medical of Montana Inc
Looking at my old orders from 2015-2016; the sellers were all different.
Sold by: Big Sky Laboratory

Sold by: Health and More
Sold by: LifeMeds
Sold by: Charleston Commodities
Sold by: Optimal BioLogics
but I did know about magnetic clay and their website with PA and magnesium supplements

"We also upgraded quality control and added pea protein to enhance the PREBIOTIC effect on the microbes. Therefore, we reduced the Leonardite and compensated with pea protein. This addition of pea protein caused the capsules to be slightly larger and have a more polished sheen. Also, SMMT continues to manufacture the previous formula ( corrected listing) without pea protein. The numbers of microflora weights are identical to the previous formula."

don't know much about humic acids other than it is rich in minerals, thought it was already a prebiotic. if SMMT has tested the effectiveness then it's good i guess.
[/B] [B]I would use the natural prebiotic that is naturally with the SBOs when cultured in humic and fulvic acids.
"SMMT enhanced its proprietary microflora blend, while some of the names changed in 2010, and continues developmental efforts to advance numerous aspects of our product; enhancing it overall effectiveness while making it cost competitive."

I see.
"The most interesting property of Streptomyces is the ability to produce bioactive secondary metabolites, such as antifungals, antivirals, antitumorals, anti-hypertensives, immunosuppressants, and especially antibiotics. The production of most antibiotics is species specific, and these secondary metabolites are important for Streptomyces species in order to compete with other microorganisms that come in contact, even within the same genre."

"Self-medication and overuse of antibiotics is another important factor that contributes to resistance, reducing the lifetime of the antibiotic, thus causing the constant need for research and development of new antibiotics."
Sounds like the people on FB with chronic lyme who can't get off doxycycline and need fecal matter transplant or a lot of pre/probiotics
Which is why i was scared to take diflucan, nystatin and rifaximin on my own but sometimes i felt like I need to try it.
https://www.sciencedirect.com/sci...7012001341

Phage therapy could be an alternative to antibiotics to be used with SBOs or histamine, lactate free probiotics
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/...MC5547374/

http://www.customprobiotics.com/

"Current research on the use of phages and their lytic proteins, specifically against multidrug-resistant bacterial infections, suggests phage therapy has the potential to be used as either an alternative or a supplement to antibiotic treatments. Antibacterial therapies, whether phage- or antibiotic-based, each have relative advantages and disadvantages; accordingly, many considerations must be taken into account when designing novel therapeutic approaches for preventing and treating bacterial infections. Although much is still unknown about the interactions between phage, bacteria, and human host, the time to take phage therapy seriously seems to be rapidly approaching."

Why doesn't this list how many billion CFUs like other probiotics such as Renew Life. Is this better than Renew Life?

Found answer from their website.

The colony forming units (CFU) of Prescript Assist are 145 million per capsule. This figure cannot be compared to CFU's in lacto and bifido based probiotics where large numbers (billions) are required because 99%+ die during manufacturing, storage, stomach acid, etc, etc. Must be pointed out, as the general consumer typically is not aware of this, and will often attempt to compare products on this basis alone without any point of reference.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, the few articles on soil based organisms kind of psyched me out from purchasing these.

^i wouldn't be worried about SBOs. Moreso concerned about the changes in the once great product which you can buy from enviromedica. The product you're selling is a completely different product because of the different strains.

What is this?
