General Questions:

What is Bio-Heal?

Bio-Heal is a 5-in-1 that includes prebiotics, probiotics, four ingredients to help heal the lining of the gut, neurotransmitter support (brain booster), and digestive enzymes to help maximize nutrient absorption from food.

We created Bio-Heal with the help of a product development team consisting of chemists and botanists that have brought hundreds of products to the market. The ingredients all work together to heal the gut, reduce inflammation in the body, improve the immune system, help the body detox, and stimulate the brain.

What parents tell us is that they notice a difference in their children when they take Bio-Heal, even after trying other probiotics.

How is Bio-Heal different from other probiotics?

Bio-Heal is different from other over-the-counter probiotic supplements on the market for a few reasons.

We have doctors around the world recommending this product because Bio-Heal is more than a probiotic. Bio-Heal is a 5-in-1 that includes prebiotics, probiotics, four ingredients to help heal the lining of the gut, neurotransmitter support (brain booster), and digestive enzymes to help maximize nutrient absorption from food.

Many of our customers have tried other probiotics and didn’t notice any change in their children. When they switch to Bio-Heal, they see a difference sometimes in as little as a few days.

Bio-Heal is different and more effective for many reasons. The first thing is that it was explicitly created for Children on the Spectrum by a parent of a child with a diagnosis.

Additionally:

1. Strength - Our probiotic contains 13 billion CFU from 12 strains to balance the most severe imbalances vs. Culturelle which has 5 Billion from 1 strain.

2. Strain Diversity - 12 strains including ones that have been studied to improve sociability in Autism. You won’t find the majority of them in other probiotics due to their cost. Lactobacillus Reuteri could help improve sociability and increase the amount of oxytocin-producing neurons (a hormone associated with social behavior and human connection) in the brain. It could also enhance learning and the ability to form new connections from thoughts and ideas.

3. Heal Gut Lining - Contains four ingredients designed to help heal the lining of the gut. A healthy gut lining is crucial for reducing inflammation and improving brain function. Bio-Heal is the only probiotic on the market that contains Phosphatidylcholine, an ingredient that helps heal the Gut lining and reduce inflammation. It can also help improve memory, motor planning, and executive functions such as sorting and prioritizing.

4. Digestive Enzymes - Contains enzymes to help break down food to maximize nutrient absorption.

5. Brain Booster - Includes a brain booster than can aid executive function and complex language.

Most of our customers have tried other brands and never noticed any changes in their child. Those same parents noticed a change in their child within a short period after taking Bio-Heal.

We can assure you we take pride in our quality and uphold the highest level of standards for our product, which is why we offer the money-back guarantee. We test every raw ingredient that comes into our manufacturing facility for both potency as well as contaminants by a third party lab.

Is Bio-Heal an FDA-Approved Drug?

The FDA is not authorized to review and approve dietary supplement products for safety and effectiveness before they are marketed. This includes ALL nutritional supplements including the ones you buy in the store

That said, dietary supplements are regulated products. Dietary supplement marketing, manufacturing, labeling, and advertising are all covered by regulations enforced by FDA and the Federal Trade Commission.

All-Star Nutrition works with a manufacturer that has a stellar reputation that has been in business over 50 years right here in the United States. Our manufacturing facility is third-party cGMP Certified by NSF International and NASC. This certification requires the use of safe and effective ingredients, process controls throughout the entire facility, strict document and record controls, ongoing GMP training for employees and finished product testing. All plants work under the auspices of 21 CFR 111 which is the code of regulations for GMP.

Is Bio-Heal only for individuals with ASD/ADHD?

No. This probiotic is currently being used by individuals who want to heal their gut and improve their health, or even to lose weight. We have customers who are athletes taking Bio-Heal to increase their strength and stamina.

What Other Supplements Do You Recommend?

Our main priorities with Supplements are to heal the gut, reduce inflammation, and help the body detox.

We do that using four main Supplements:

1. Revolutionary Bio-Heal Probiotic: Focused primarily on healing the gut and reducing inflammation.

2. Sulforaphane (Broccoli Sprout Extract): An extremely potent substance that helps the body detox. Studies at Johns Hopkins state that sulforaphane has some ability to bolster the body’s natural defenses against oxidative stress, inflammation, DNA damage, and also to reduce the symptoms of Autism

3. Digestive Enzymes: Our children have trouble digesting and getting the nutrients from food. These supplements provide enzymes that help break down the food so that it doesn’t pass undigested into the bloodstream causing chronic inflammation. These are especially important and will have the most significant impact if your child still consumes wheat, dairy, corn, or any other hard to digest food. Both my son and I take these with every meal.

4. Omega 3’s: A primary cause of inflammation is the imbalance of Omega 3’s and Omega 6s fatty acids. The standard American diet and the food our children crave are full of Omega 6s creating more inflammation. A high dose Omega 3 supplement helps restore balance and reduce inflammation among other benefits.

While each one of these supplements is powerful on its own, combining them will help your child reach their potential.

I’ve searched all over the world to find the best supplements. You can see them all here: https://myallstarnutrition.com

Does Bio-Heal contain any allergens?

Our Bio-Heal Probiotic is:

- vegan (free from egg, dairy, meat, whey, fish, shellfish, casein, and honey products)

- free of wheat and gluten

- free of sesame

- free of peanuts and tree nuts. However, the facility is not a certified nut-free, peanut-free facility. At the moment, they do not process products with nuts or peanuts. However, that does not mean this won't change in the future.

- while Bio-Heal does not contain soy as an ingredient, this probiotic does contain the ingredient phosphatidylcholine, which is derived from soy lecithin. However, in most cases, phosphatidylcholine typically does not contain sufficient soy protein residues to provoke allergic reactions in the majority of soy-allergic consumers. It's also a potent ingredient that can help heal the gut, improve speech, memory, and cellular health. Studies show that the majority of children with ASD have inadequate levels of choline in the brain which causes many issues including decreased REM sleep, and reduced the ability to focus. Phosphatidylcholine is a precursor to both choline and acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that regulates memory, motor planning, and executive functions such as sorting and prioritizing.  

- free of corn ingredients (no corn starch, corn syrup, citric acid, additives, or flavorings). Unfortunately, however, corn is not considered one of the "8 major food allergens in the US", and therefore processing facilities are not checked for airborne contamination of corn products and we cannot declare that this probiotic is 100% corn-free.

- free of peaches, bananas, peas, sunflower, and coconut ingredients

Where is Bio-Heal manufactured?

We work with a manufacturer that has a stellar reputation that has been in business over 50 years right here in the United States.

Is your manufacturing facility cGMP Certified?

Yes! Our manufacturing facility is third-party cGMP Certified by NSF International and NASC. This certification requires the use of safe and effective ingredients, process controls throughout the entire facility, strict document and record controls, ongoing GMP training for employees and finished product testing.  All plants work under the auspices of 21 CFR 111 which is the code of regulations for GMP.

Every raw ingredient that comes into our manufacturing facility is tested for both potency as well as contaminants by a third party lab. After passing,  the ingredients are made into the final product and then they are tested again by a third party lab for both potency and contaminants on a skip lot basis.

Why are the contents half-full?

Great question! After receiving feedback from our customers in 2019, we worked with our team to make containers bigger to allow for an average adult-sized hand to fit inside the container.

Our containers are filled by weight (each bottle of probiotic powder weighs 102g or 3.5oz) and are purposely not filled to the top. There is a “fill line” about halfway by design, so that an average adult-sized hand can fit in the container to scoop powder out without spillage. 

There are 60 “scoops” worth of product in each container. Serving suggestions are based on weight:

- 50 lbs or less: Blend or mix up to1/2 scoop daily with food or drink. (1/4 scoop or 1/8 tsp for the first week) (one container can last up to 120 days)

- 51-100 lbs: Blend or mix up to 1 scoop daily with food or drink. (1/2 scoop of 1/4 tsp for the first week) (one container can last 60 days)

- 101 lbs or more: Blend or mix up to 2 scoops daily with food or drink. (1 scoop or 1/2 tsp for the first week) (one container can last 30 days)

Note that the term “scoop” refers to the little spoon that comes inside of the bottle. Each “scoop” is approximately 1/2 tsp.

Do you ship Bio-Heal on ice? What about efficacy in the warmer months?

Bio-Heal is freeze-dried and shelf-stable without refrigeration for 24 months.  Moisture is what activates the strains of bacteria, not heat.  

We ship Bio-Heal with a pressure-sealed container to keep out the moisture.

We do suggest storing Bio-Heal in the refrigerator once that pressure seal has been removed to help keep the moisture out.

How long does Bio-Heal take to work?

This is a great question we hear all the time. One thing to consider is: What are your health goals?

Some customers report noticeable changes within a week or two but that is not typical. 

Within a 4-6 week timeframe you may start to notice subtle changes with bowel movements or immunity, as well as speech and development.  

We like to remind our customers to consider is that healing the gut and reducing inflammation is a process!  It doesn't happen overnight!

Safety and Storage:

Are there any side effects?

There are no side effects like you'd see with a prescription drug.

With that being said, anytime you alter the microbiome you may see an adjustment period depending on the condition and level of dysbiosis (microbial imbalance). While an adjustment period may not happen to everyone, it is a possibility. When you take Bio-Heal, it works to heal the lining of the gut and crowd out the bad guys with good guys.

During this process, the bad guys (yeast and bacteria) die. As they die, they release waste and something called endotoxin. As you may guess, endotoxin is slightly toxic to the body. And because the immune system mounts a response to this endotoxin, we usually feel worse as we cleanse. Additionally, the yeast and bad guys live on sugar and when they’re dying it can trigger cravings. They are smart and want to survive, so they trigger the body to give them what they need to survive.

We know it seems slightly counterintuitive, but these symptoms are actually a sign that the product is working and the body is healing.

Common Symptoms of bacteria/yeast die-off include fatigue, brain fog, gastrointestinal distress such as nausea, gas, bloating, diarrhea or constipation, low-grade fever, headache, sore throat, body itch, muscle and joint soreness, pain, flu-like symptoms or irritability. It is possible that this battle in the gut is uncomfortable and can cause you or your child to deal with fatigue or discomfort.

You may be interested in trying the following strategies can help ease your body's transition if this becomes an issue:

- Drink plenty of water

- Try Enterosgel (available on Amazon)

- Start small: For the first 7-10 days, take 1/2 of Bio-Heal's serving portion suggested for your weight and slowly increase

How should I store Bio-Heal? Does it need to be refrigerated?

Bio-Heal has been freeze dried and pressure sealed and is shelf stable without refrigeration for 24 months.

Moisture is what activates the strains of bacteria.  We ship Bio-Heal with a pressure sealed container to keep out the moisture.

We do recommended (but do not require) storing Bio-Heal in the refrigerator once that pressure seal has been removed to help keep out the moisture. However, some kitchen countertops or cabinets maintain a cool, dry environment.

Does Bio-Heal have any drug interactions?

Please check with your Doctor or Pharmacist.  We haven't heard of any drug interactions but we do recommend asking a professional familiar with you or your child's specific medications.

Does Bio-Heal contain any milk or dairy ingredients?

No, Bio-Heal is actually vegan. Our 5-in-1 formula is free of milk and dairy products.

Does Bio-Heal contain soy?

While Bio-Heal does not contain soy as an ingredient, this probiotic does contain the ingredient phosphatidylcholine, which is derived from soy lecithin. However, in most cases, phosphatidylcholine typically does not contain sufficient soy protein residues to provoke allergic reactions in the majority of soy-allergic consumers.

It's also a potent ingredient that can help heal the gut, improve speech, memory, and cellular health.  Studies show that the majority of children with ASD have inadequate levels of choline in the brain which causes many issues including decreased REM sleep, and reduced the ability to focus.

Phosphatidylcholine is a precursor to both choline and acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that regulates memory, motor planning, and executive functions such as sorting and prioritizing.

Ordering and Shippping:

How do I order Bio-Heal?

You can order any product we carry directly from our website by clicking on the product you would like to purchase, selecting the order type (one-time or subscription-based.), choosing how many of each product you would like, and by filling out your shipping and billing information.

If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Can I get a sample?

We're humbled to learn you want to try one of our products.

Healing the gut and reducing inflammation in the body is a process, not an event, therefore a sample or two most likely wouldn't make a noticeable difference. Consistent usage for 4-6 weeks is when people start to notice a relief in symptoms, which is why we do not currently offer samples. 

However, this is made up for by our 90-day money-back guarantee, which allows a trial with any of our products for up to 90 days with guaranteed improved health and wellbeing or your money back.

Does my local pharmacy stock Bio-Heal?

Bio-Heal is not currently available in all local pharmacies. However, there are doctor's offices and wellness stores around the U.S. that keep Bio-Heal on hand for sale.

Our 5-in-1 Bio-Heal Probiotic can also be purchased from our Website and it is also available on Amazon and eBay for your convenience.

Serving and Diet:

How much Bio-Heal should I consume/give my child?

You can take the product anytime. However, we recommend making the product part of your morning routine.

Do I Need To Change My Child’s Diet As Well?

We strongly recommend changing your child’s diet in addition to taking Bio-Heal.

Diet changes your Body’s Makeup - gut biome, gene expression, brain function, and hormones.

Consider this: What we Eat and Drink affects our…

- Energy Levels

- Susceptibility to Infections

- Propensity for certain types of Cancer

- Type 2 Diabetes

- Symptoms of Crohn’s & Celiac diseases

- Condition of our Arteries

- Likelihood of Heart Attack or Stroke

Eating foods where we have an allergy can be deadly (peanuts).

Drinking alcohol impacts our brain function.

None of what is written here is controversial...so why is the FACT that diet can affect the Extra-Sensitive brains and bodies of children on the Autism Spectrum still be in dispute?

Children on the Spectrum typically have genetic polymorphisms that impair their bodies’ ability to remove toxins. Our standard American diet, and specifically the foods our kids crave, are full of toxins that overload their system, cause inflammation, and make their symptoms worse.

The bottom line is that consuming the wrong foods can have a tremendous impact on the health, mood, and severity of our children’s symptoms. While diet change is not necessary, and most parents see results without changing diet, it’s highly recommended to help our children reach their potential.

What Dietary And Lifestyle Changes Do You Recommend?

The best way to start is what I call the 2R Protocol: Remove toxins and foods that cause issues, and then help the body Repair by providing nutrition and supplements that help the body heal.

STEP 1: Remove all dietary irritants including wheat, sugar, dairy, toxic pesticides, artificial sweeteners, and synthetic food dyes from your child's diet.

The idea is to allow your child's body to function to the best of its ability without inflammation caused by food sensitivities and toxins.

STEP 2: Repair Give your child nutrition and supplements that help your child's body heal itself.

* Healing the gut and reducing inflammation are the main priorities

Your children will start feeling better and their behavior, sensitivities, focus, and emotional connections will improve.

I've had the privilege of seeing many lives change by changing diet and lifestyle. I realize that our children have incredibly strong food preferences and any change seems impossible. That said, I’ve done it myself with my son and know that it is possible.

If the change is too much or too dramatic to pull off, then I recommend taking supplements to help minimize the damage of the food while you slowly work in the lifestyle changes as you can.

How many CFU’s are in each serving? Which strains are in the Bio-Heal formula?

Each serving (1 scoop or 3 capsules) of our 5-in-1 Bio-Heal Probiotic contains over 13 Billion CFUs, and 12 unique strains. The strains have been specifically selected as they are known to support digestive health, immune support, and healthy levels of inflammation. 

Strains include: S. Boulardii, L. Reuteri, L. Plantarum, B. Bifidum, B. Lactis, B. Longum, L. Acidophilus, L. Rhamnosus, L. Lactis, B. Breve, B. Infantis, L. Casei.

Should Bio-Heal be taken with or without food? What time of day should I take Bio-Heal?

The best time of day to take the 5-in-1 Bio-Heal Probiotic really depends on how you or your child respond(s) to it - we've heard from some customers/parents that in the beginning, the probiotic makes their children sleepy, so they give it to them at night. We've heard from other parents that the probiotic makes their children a little more active, so they give it to them in the mornings.

Most of all, we recommend consistency - a time of day that the probiotic can be included in a regular routine (maybe you drink juice every morning, or maybe you prefer a nightly glass of milk that would be easy to combine with the probiotic's routine).

The probiotic formula also contains digestive enzymes, which may be able to help process any gluten or dairy (or other ingredients that may cause sensitivities), so you may prefer to take the probiotic with a certain meal, depending on its ingredients.

It's up to you, your child, and your current lifestyle.

How should I mix the 5-in-1 Bio-Heal Probiotic Powder? How should I take the capsules?

The capsules will be most comfortably swallowed when taken with fluids. We recommend a drink that is room temperature or cooler.

As for the powder, we have heard from people who have made the BioHeal Probiotic into popsicles, ice cubes, put it in a small morning milkshake, as well as others who mix it into peanut butter then make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with that peanut butter. Our Bio-Heal probiotic can be mixed into any food or drink that is room temperature or cooler.

Mix into soft foods:

- dairy-free yogurt

- organic applesauce

- organic peanut butter

- dairy-free pudding

Mix into condiments:

- organic ketchup

- organic Bbq sauce

- dairy-free ranch or any dressing

- Mustard

- Mayo

Mix into drinks (water is not recommended). We recommend adding the powder slowly and stirring it until dissolved if mixing it into a beverage.  A small, cheap milk frother is ideal for mixing the powder into a liquid. 

- organic apple juice

- organic orange juice

- Smoothies

- non-dairy Yogurt drinks

- organic green juice

- dairy-free chocolate milk (if dairy, must be consumed within the hour)

- organic lemonade

Sprinkle on top of food (once the food has cooled):

- Salads

- Pasta (can be disguised with parmesan cheese)

- Pancakes

- Eggs

- Oatmeal/Cream of Wheat after it has been cooled

We also suggest adding the powder to the liquid slowly... do not dump the entire scoop of powder into the liquid at one time. This leads to clumping.

Here is a great video for additional information https://edu.allstarnutrition.com/tips/.

We recommended mixing the product out of sight of your children. Even though the probiotic is tasteless/odorless, some children are sensitive to even the thought that there might be something new or different in their beverage.

How long should I take Bio-Heal? When do I stop?

You may take the product as long as you find it helpful.  

In an ideal world, you would repopulate the gut with beneficial bacteria and then stop taking this probiotic.

However, we have some customers who have been taking Bio-Heal for years and still find it beneficial.

Everyone is different, and we recommend consulting your healthcare practitioner to advise the best course for you and your body.

Can adults take Bio-Heal?

Yes!  Our customer base includes infants through senior citizens as serving size is based on body weight. We offer a high-quality product for anyone that is looking to heal their gut and reduce inflammation. Please see attached for serving suggestions.
