A-F Betafood®, 180 Tablets

A-F Betafood is a gallbladder supplement that supports bile production and includes an array of whole food and other ingredients to support healthy fat digestion.*
  • Supports healthy bile flow in the gallbladder
  • Supports bile production and helps maintain healthy liver function
  • Supports healthy lipid metabolism

Gallbladder Support

The gallbladder is a storage location for the bile that’s produced by the liver. Bile plays a key role in fat digestion and removal of waste from the body. 20-25 million Americans are affected by concerns of the gallbladder, including its efficiency and ability to function correctly.1

Beet (Root) and Beet Leaf

Beets, a main ingredient in A-F Betafood, contain betalains and betaine, which are two phytonutrients that have been linked to various health benefits. Betalains are water-soluble, nitrogen-containing pigments,2 and betaine is an N-methylated amino acid.3 Betalains are natural antioxidants4,5 found in certain plants including red beets.6 They have been shown to support antioxidant activity,4,5 as demonstrated by emerging research on betanin’s (a major betalain compound) ability to inhibit lipid peroxidation.5 Additional research has also shown that betanin may bind to circulating LDL and protect it against oxidation as demonstrated in an ex vivo-induced oxidation study.

How A-F Betafood Supports Your Gallbladder

Gallbladder wall thickness may be an indicator of the overall health of the gallbladder, and wall thickening may be an indication of gastrointestinal and liver concerns.7,8 In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 42 healthy adults completed a study with A-F Betafood for 12 weeks.9R The change in gallbladder wall thickness from baseline to week 12 differed significantly between groups (p = 0.0497) with a decrease in thickness observed in the A-F Betafood group after the 12-week supplementation. This study suggests that A-F Betafood improves gallbladder function in adults who are at risk of gallbladder insufficiency.9

GI Stability™ 90 Wafers

Gluten FreeNon-Soy FormulaVegetarian
GI Stability supports the GI tract by delivering targeted prebiotic action, supporting a healthy gut microbiome, and feeding the growth of beneficial bacteria*^.
  • Designed for everyday and acute gastrointestinal (GI) needs
  • With prebiotic 2’-FL: studies show that 2’-FL helps support the growth of beneficial bacteria*^
  • May help support the immune system
  • Contains Collinsonia Root, which has been historically used to support normal elimination and digestive health*


^To date, shown in multiple animal studies, infants, and one adult human study.


Digestive health issues affect daily life for millions of Americans. Many of these conditions are paired with a disrupted microbiome,1 which throws the GI system out of balance and may cause gut distress. Individual lifestyles, diets, antibiotic use, and traveling patterns have the potential to disrupt the microbiome. Building resilience to disruption is important – it helps give the human microbiome the ability to return to equilibrium.2 GI Stability provides targeted support for protecting the complex gastrointestinal environment.

 

How GI Stability Works

GI Stability takes a systems-based approach to managing the microbiome and supporting a healthy GI environment. It contains 2’-FL – a unique prebiotic HMO (Human Milk Oligosaccharide) that resists digestion and moves directly to the lower GI tract where it becomes effective in feeding selective bacteria.3

Studies show that HMOs have a unique structure that is preferred by beneficial microbes who use them to grow.4,5

 

The Importance of HMOs

HMOs are naturally found in human milk and contribute to the benefits of breast-feeding that are linked to long term development, immune protection, and microbial population cultivation.5,6 These benefits are not exclusive to infants, though. GI Stability is a great source for targeted prebiotic action that contributes to a healthy microbiome and may provide immune system support.*

 

GI System Health and Immune System Support

Proper GI integrity and a healthy gut microbiome help support immune defenses by influencing the development and production of immune cells, and by helping to regulate local GI and systemic immune system responses.7,8 Sustaining these microbes and supporting the cells that make up the GI lining with selective prebiotics is essential for GI support in the face of acute and chronic GI stress.7,8
