Broad Spectrum Amino Acids
Biocare's Broad Spectrum Amino Acids is a supplement that I think deserves far more recognition than it gets. I've used it for longer than I can remember and have seen some amazing results. My experience has been that it’s especially helpful for patients suffering digestive and bowel disorders. I've used it very successfully indeed as part of a treatment programme for Ulcerative Colitis and for Crohn's disease. Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease have responded brilliantly to this supplement, reporting improvements in a whole range of symptoms including better digestion and bowel movements, improved general health and fewer relapses. One patient who was hospitalised on TPN was back to living a normal life on a normal diet (minus wheat and dairy) within 6 months. Another that I saw in clinic was able to cancel her surgery altogether. This therapy is useful for patients with any kind of malabsorption syndrome or problems digesting protein, and I've seen it used with remarkable success following major gut surgery including bowel re-section/colectomy, and gastrectomy (removal of the stomach). One unexpected benefit has been to people suffering from eating disorders, especially anorexia and bulimia and in particular where there is a fear of calories.
I wish this product was better known to GPs and gastroenterologists as I think it could be really valuable as part of the treatment programme for a whole range of gut disorders. I also rate it highly as a supplement for use during convalescence, especially where there have been long periods of illness, inadequate intake of calories or a long time on a liquid diet.
Cautions: If you have had major gut surgery, suffer from any serious digestive problem, or have any type of IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), then only use this product under medical supervision.
