In life, it’s all about balance — whether we are balancing family and work, balancing mind body and spirit, balancing in the yoga tree pose or balancing our digestive systems.
Our gut is a delicate balance of microorganisms that can be out of balance due to diet, stress, environment and medication. This balance affects our health, mood, and quality of life.
While most of these microorganisms are helpful, when the bad bacteria outnumber the good, we can get unwanted side effects including decreased energy, bloating and digestive issues.
This is where Probiotics or friendly bacteria fit in. To help rebalance the digestive system, supplements like NuCulture by Alternascript reintroduce specific bacteria strains into your gut to crowd out the problematic ones. NuCulture is the new kid on the block, launched on June 6th, 2016. NuCulture also contains prebiotics which are food for the probiotics.
NuCulture is the probiotic of the future, containing 5 probiotic strains, extensively studied clinically and formulated to effective amounts of colony forming units (CFU) per dose. It combines its probiotic strains with powerful prebiotic strains in a patented, delayed-release capsule. Unlike some others, NuCulture survives passing through the acidic environment of the stomach and arrives intact in your GI tract to optimize its effectiveness.
Recent research has called the gut the “second brain” because it houses over 100 million neurons, more than is found in your spinal cord! These neurons influence neural, immune and endocrine function. In fact, there are over 30 neurotransmitters found in your gut as well. I find that utterly fascinating. No wonder when my stomach is upset, I’m upset! It really casts a pall over all my activities and influences my mood.
I recently tried NuCulture for a few weeks. I am a big proponent of Probiotics and have been for over 10 years. They are a major part of my wellness routine.
The NuCulture capsules are small and easy to swallow. You only need one a day. My experience has been very pleasant. No digestive issues and my tummy which occasionally has a tendency to bloat has been quiet and flat (which is great for summer especially). My energy is consistent throughout the day without any sugar cravings or major ebbs, and I feel a sense of balance overall. I’ve had no sinus issues and my immune system is strong.
Now, of course, I can’t attribute all of this to NuCulture, but, I do believe that the gut influences the entire ecosystem of the bodymind. I also believe that the occasional digestive issues I’d been having are now calm.
I’m really glad that Probiotics have become so popular. I’ve studied holistic health for many years and was always suggesting them to family and friends, especially when they were taking antibiotics or had stomach issues, gas or nausea.
What I find particularly wonderful about Alternascript, the healthcare company behind NuCulture is their genuine care for the customer. In May 2013, Lucas Siegel and Matthew Piskorz founded the company with one simple purpose: “to specifically design products that actually work and are accessible to everyone.” Lucas and Matthew wanted a change from often overpriced supplements that didn’t work, so they found an alternative — an AlternaScript.

So, would you like to try NuCulture for yourself? NuCulture, along with all AlternaScript products, can only be purchased through a subscription through the AlternaScript website. They do also offer free trials of their products. You can check it out here.
Probiotics are found in yogurt, sauerkraut, miso soup, kefir and other foods, so you are not introducing anything foreign into your body with Probiotic supplements. They enhance and support the beneficial bacteria that line your digestive system and improve the absorption of essential nutrients in foods optimizing overall health.
I have had no side effects from taking Probiotics, except energy and calm. I love Probiotics and, if I could, I’d shout it to the world.
It’s a gut feeling!
