  • Though it may sound odd‚ your health depends upon a certain amount of good bacteria in your digestive tract. When you eat‚ these bacteria work to break the food into tiny particles so that your small intestine can absorb the nutrients. Without good bacteria‚ you may not be able to digest the food that you eat properly. Good bacteria also works with your immune system to protect you from pathogens that may cause illness and disease.

    Normally‚ you have enough good bacteria to do this job. However‚ a poor diet can interfere with the balance of your gastrointestinal tract; this may cause such symptoms as gas‚ bloating‚ nausea‚ and abdominal discomfort. It can also weaken your immune system‚ leaving you vulnerable to illness-causing pathogens.

    You can improve your digestive health and increase the number of good bacteria in your system by eating lots of fruits and vegetables. If you're not getting enough of these in your everyday diet‚ you may want to take a natural supplement.

    A.C. Formula by Pure Encapsulations contains a range of herbal ingredients for improving digestive health. The herbs and minerals in this formula work together to relieve stomach discomfort caused by imbalances in natural gut flora. A.C. Formula helps build a healthy environment for microflora like healthy yeast‚ bacteria‚ and fungi in the digestive tract‚ while also boosting immunity. Some of the ingredients contained in each vegetable capsule include:

    • Barberry‚ which promotes immune system health‚ making it harder for unhealthy bacteria to adhere to cells through the alkaloid berberine
    • Grapefruit seed‚ which supports a healthy balance of microbes and fungi in the intestines Lavender‚ which has a soothing effect on the lining of the colon and stomach
    • Red thyme‚ which soothes the gastrointestinal tract

    Take four to six capsules of Pure Encapsulations’ A.C. Formula daily. Divide the doses equally between meals‚ taking your pills with a full glass of water just before a meal.

    If you are pregnant or lactating‚ talk to your medical provider before you take this product. This herbal remedy may also interact with antibiotics‚ so make sure your doctor knows you’re taking A.C. Formula. If you’re sensitive to barberry or thyme extract‚ you may experience side effects. Talk to your doctor to determine whether this supplement is right for you.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. Caprylic acid has been associated with GI upset‚ bloating or diarrhea. Caprylic acid is not recommended for individuals prone to developing kidney stones. Bromelain has been associated with GI upset or diarrhea. Individuals with an allergy to pineapple should avoid this product. Consult your physician for more information.

Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Caprylic acid may be contra-indicated with NSAID’s (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and certain blood thinning medications. Bromelain may be contra-indicated with blood thinning medications and certain antibiotics. The capacity for grapefruit seed extract to produce drug interactions remains unknown. Human pharmacokinetic studies have that established that two furanocoumarins‚ bergamottin and 6‚7-dihydroxybergamottin (DHB)‚ are primarily responsible for drug interactions with grapefruit juice. HPLC analysis has revealed no detectable bergamottin in Pure Encapsulations grapefruit seed extract.

DHB is present at a concentration of 3 ppm‚ providing <1 mcg DHB per 6 capsules of A.C. Formula II. This is <0.1% of the DHB dose obtained from a single 8-oz glass of grapefruit juice. Furthermore‚ the DHB content of our grapefruit seed extract is below that detected in the furanocoumarin-free grapefruit juices used as negative controls in studies. Like all botanical products‚ grapefruit seed extract is a complex material with numerous phytochemicals that remain largely uncharacterized with respect to drug pharmacokinetics. However‚ the absence of bergamottin and low concentrations of DHB in the seed are consistent with a chemical composition distinct from the pulp and juice. Our findings indicate that Pure Encapsulations grapefruit seed extract is exempt from bergamottin mediated interactions and carries a low likelihood of DHB-mediated interactions. Consult your physician for more information.

    Balances the microflora in the gut

    This product was recommended for my son (14) who suffered with dybiosis. I think it needs to be noted that you need to start out slowly with this because it does do its job. My son only took it on weekends until he overcame the die-off. Dont be surprised if you become extremely tired have to spit alot or your eyes get bloodshot. In my sons case these were signs that the AC Formula was working. It only lasted the 1st month of weekends that he took it. Then we did a week that he was out of school. He continues to get better and better.

    Pros

      Helped my son

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
