Ultimate Defense


Ultimate Defense is Beeyoutiful's finest probiotic, designed with embedded predigested food sources for the bacteria. It also contains soil-based organisms that do not necessarily colonize the GI, but help greatly in their passage through. Ultimate Defense is specifically designed to establish complete, lasting colonies of intestinal flora in a world that sterilizes, processes and denaturalizes all food sources.

Ultimate Defense is a combination of 13 different bacteria, fermented greens to feed them as colonies get established and soil based organisms to potentiate the bacterial activity in the intestines. A healthy GI bacterial flora is thought to improve overall health and immune system function.

Tummy Tuneup

http://smithfamilyresources.com/products/tummy-tuneup
Beeyoutiful Tummy TuneUp is a combination of eight different species of beneficial bacteria (including lactobacillus acidophilus) designed to support gastrointestinal health and immune system function.

We have used Tummy TuneUp for many stomach storms and can personally testify to its effectiveness. It's great for indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, and gas pain. It comes in an enterically-coated VCap and is easy to swallow. For those who can't swallow capsules, it can be easily opened so that the powdery contents can be sprinkled into a drink, on to food, or directly into the mouth. (It's best not to add it to anything hot since heat may kill the beneficial bacteria.)

Even babies with colic-y tummies can take Tummy TuneUp! Mommy can apply it before nursing OR add 1/2 of a capsule to baby's bottle OR sprinkle 1/2 of a capsule directly into baby's mouth.

Aloe Vera

Care for yourself inside and out with Aloe Vera.

Beeyoutiful's softgels are freeze-dried, concentrated, and then reconstituted to preserve just the right strength for daily use.

The primary internal benefit is the way aloe soothes and helps reduce irritation in digestive tracts -- from irritable bowel syndrome to colitis to constipation -- making food and other supplements more bio-available to your body.

The external advantages?  Simply break open one of these convenient aloe vera gel caps and spread it on minor burns and sunburns.  Apply to Athlete's foot, acne, warts, and cracked, dry skin.  Apply to poison ivy, blisters and any other skin or scalp irritation to help reduce the risk of infection and scarring.  Aloe Vera Softgels are effective because they stimulate the production of collagen, the substance essential for restoring skin cells.  That means aloe even helps smooth out wrinkles!

French Vanilla Stevia

"Beeyoutiful's French Vanilla Stevia is a wonderful pleasant tasting herb with natural French Vanilla flavoring that is a great addition to your pantry! Stevia combined with the great vanilla flavoring can be used in your favorite coffee, tea, or other beverage!

"Stevia, a pleasant tasting herb that is native to Paraguay, has been used daily for centuries in the diet of the Guarani Indians who called it kaa he-he, or “sweet herb.” It was discovered in the late 1800’s by an Italian botanist, after which it began to be cultivated on farms for use, rather than just growing wild. Gradually, stevia’s popularity spread to other South American countries, and then to Europe. In 1970, an extract of stevia was introduced in Japan and in 1988, it began to be used in numerous food products there, from ice cream and candies to pastries, soft drinks, and even toothpaste.

"Stevia has no known toxicity or side-effects and, when used in whole plant form, it has often been used as a digestive aid. The leaves have been used topically as a support in fighting acne, dermatitis, eczema and other skin conditions both by the Guarani and others who are familiar with the stevia plant. Stevia leaves are known to reduce scar tissue formation as well as to promote softer, smoother skin. Anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-viral properties have been found in both the whole plant as well as the extract and because of this, both have been used topically to promote wound healing and also in mouthwashes and toothpastes to inhibit bacterial growth that can lead to cavities."
