Is something missing from your diet?
Peer-reviewed evidence suggests that daily consumption of fermented, probiotic foods is necessary to achieve a high enough concentration to obtain the health benefits of “good” bacteria.
In this article, you’ll learn what sets our gut shots apart, the hand-picked ingredients of Immuni-Root Balance and their benefits, and the best ways to incorporate Gut Kulture into your health regimen.
What Is Gut Kulture?
Gut Kulture Shots are a one-of-a-kind, raw, probiotic superfood.
Here’s the basic concept: the portability and convenience of probiotic supplements, paired with the effectiveness of fermented whole foods.
Evidence shows that supplements may be less beneficial for your gut microbiome compared to whole foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, yogurt, kombucha, or other traditional probiotic foods.
The problem is that whereas whole foods often contain dozens or hundreds of strains of beneficial bacteria, most supplements only contain a few.
Clearly, traditional fermented foods are the superior choice, but they’re not perfect, either. Eating them daily can be a challenge for reasons including cost, portability, and palatability.
Gut Kulture Shots are cold-pressed, wild-fermented, rich in antioxidants, and each one is handcrafted using functional whole food ingredients with a specific purpose in mind.
Their fresh taste, colorful appearance, and unique health benefits set them apart from anything else on the market. Unlike most packaged products, they only contain natural whole food ingredients, no juice, and no preservatives or additives.
And they’re never pasteurized, because that would kill the healthy live bacteria.
Next, you’ll learn about Immuni-Root Balance, a gut shot tailor-made for immune support and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Immuni-Root Balance: A Natural Remedy for Your Immune System and Microbiome
According to one survey, a majority of doctors today prescribe probiotics for their patients for a variety of reasons, including general gut health.
Immuni-Root Balance is a Gut Kulture Shot designed to take the place of pills and capsules for daily gut health support, with carefully chosen whole food ingredients to augment the beneficial effects of living bacteria.
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a small evergreen shrub, the root powder of which has been used for centuries in Indian Ayurvedic traditional medicine.
Astragalus membranaceus is a flowering legume with a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine, where it’s also known as huang qi.
Traditional uses of astragalus include the promotion of longevity and treatment of fatigue, allergies, and infections.
Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) is another plant from traditional Ayurvedic medicine.
White ginseng or baeksam is Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng) that is harvested after 4-6 years of growth, then peeled and dried without being heated.
Randomized clinical trials have demonstrated increased endurance, support for balanced hormones, and cognitive support with ginseng supplementation.
Rhodiola rosea or golden root is a perennial flowering plant that grows wild in Arctic regions on several continents.
In Russian and Scandinavian folk medicine, rhodiola has been used for centuries to cope with the stress of living in harsh climates.
A systematic review of Rhodiola rosea for physical and mental fatigue found promising but contradictory evidence, and concluded that well-designed trials with minimal bias are necessary to determine its efficacy.
Dandelion root is a functional food with a wide array of phytochemicals with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. It may support cellular health.
Kudzu root, known as Gegen in Chinese, is the dried root of Pueraria lobata, a semi-woody, perennial, leguminous vine native to Southeast Asia.
The root of the kudzu plant has at least a 2000 year history of use for a wide variety of conditions. Recent studies suggest kudzu root may support brain health and healthy endocrine function.
Turmeric or Curcuma longa is a flowering plant in the ginger family. You may recognize it as the brilliant golden-yellow spice that gives curry its bold color and earthy flavor.
Beet, Carrot, and Sarsaparilla
Other ingredients in Immuni-Root Balance Shots include beets, carrots, and sarsaparilla.
4 Benefits of Immuni-Root Balance Shots
1. Supporting immune function
Your immune system is a complex network of cells, proteins, tissues, and organs that protects your body from infection and other threats.
2. Promoting a healthy stress response
The Immuni-Root Balance formula contains several adaptogens, including ashwagandha, astragalus, shatavari, ginseng, and rhodiola.
Adaptogens are plants with naturally-occurring compounds that “increase resistance of the organism to a broad spectrum of adverse biological, chemical, and physical factors” and have “normalizing effects on the various organ systems of the recipient organism”.
In other words, adaptogens support your body during times of stress.
For instance, to name one of many examples, a double-blind, randomized clinical trial (RCT) of adults with high stress levels found that taking ashwagandha daily helped support sleep, stress resistance, and a higher overall quality of life.
3. May reduce inflammation
When your immune system is challenged or in a state of imbalance, or when your stress levels are high, your body’s inflammation levels may also rise.
4. Supporting a healthy microbiome
The latest evidence shows that the health of your gut microbiome is a significant factor behind digestion and nutrient absorption.
How to Use Immuni-Root Gut Kulture Shot
Depending on your individual needs and personal history, you can use Immuni-Root shots as a standalone product or alternate them with other Gut Kulture Shots.
For immune support and resilience against stress, you can use Immuni-Root shots any time.
Some of the most popular choices are upon waking up or at mealtime.
As a digestive aid, or for natural anti-inflammatory support, drink an Immuni-Root shot on an empty stomach, then follow it up with a healthy meal 10-15 minutes later. You can also use gut shots after a heavy meal to help settle your stomach.
If you engage in intermittent fasting (IF), Immuni-Root shots are the perfect choice whenever you end your fast periods. Drink a serving before a solid food meal to enhance the benefits of IF and ease digestion as you break the fast.
The nutrients and antioxidants in Immuni-Root shots absorb best paired with solid foods, but you can still take them on an empty stomach and expect significant benefits if you’re in a rush and need a boost.
Speaking of which, some people enjoy Gut Kulture shots before going to bed after a stressful day, but the White Ginseng and other adaptogens in the Immuni-Root formula can be energizing.
Although Gut Kulture shots are caffeine-free, we recommend that you gauge your body’s response before using them around bedtime.
Studies suggest that ingredients in Immuni-Root Balance like Ashwagandha, Astragalus, White Ginseng, and Rhodiola are safe and well-tolerated, with minimal side effects and no known serious adverse effects.
However, it’s wise to speak to your physician before starting any supplement or health practice, particularly if you take prescription drugs or have a medical condition or other health concern.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should always ask their doctor’s advice before taking supplements, including Gut Kulture shots.
Gut Kulture shots aren’t the only way to support gut health, but they’re certainly the most convenient option with the fewest tradeoffs.
And even if you already eat plenty of sauerkraut, kimchi, yogurt, kefir, and other traditional fermented foods every day, Immuni-Root shots offer a meticulously crafted formula with an incredible array of herbs and functional foods shown to support immune function and a healthy stress response.
The benefits of the specially selected ingredients are synergistic, so the formula as a whole is far more effective than any individual component by itself.
Ultimately, we think the best way to discover these powerful results is to try Immuni-Root Balance shots for yourself.
