Kristina Amelong's Bowel Management Protocol is designed to optimize bowel function by softening stool, improving the health of the microbiome, boosting immunity, and regulating digestion. Rather than relying on a single supplement such as magnesium to address constipation, this combination of supplements targets the root causes of constipation, assisting to improve the overall health of the body.
This kit includes 1 each of the following products:
- Ortho Reacted Magnesium - 180 capsules
- Endo-met GB-3 - 180 tablets
- Ortho Buffered C - 180 capsules
- Researched Nutritionals CoreBiotic - 60 capsules
The contents of this kit will allow you to follow the bowel management protocol for approximately 30 days. You may run out of some supplements a bit sooner or later than 1 month, depending on the dosage you are taking, which can vary person to person. You likely will not run out of each supplement at the same time. We sell each of these supplements individually if you need to restock on some, but not the whole kit.
Following this protocol, many people will do best taking all four supplements daily, but some may prefer to take two of the supplements one day and the other two the next day, alternating back and forth (e.g. GB-3 and vitamin C one day and magnesium and the probiotic the other day). Trust your intuition and listen to your body. With the exception of the probiotic, supplements can be taken any time of day, either all at once or spread out. Again, pay attention to what works for your specific situation and needs.
