New Advanced Probiotic / Prebiotic Formula

Announcing – Phage Complete

After years of looking for a good Probiotic I finally gave up! There just wasn’t one. So I decided to develop and contract for one to be created! It also has a unique new Prebiotic. The name of this new product is Phage Complete.

I’m not joking when I say I’ve looked at hundreds of probiotic formulas. Every formula I looked at either caused issues for sensitive people, wasn’t complete, didn’t help repair the gut, or contained problematic ingredients that have been shown to actually harm the gut. So I decided to develop one myself, based on the research and science found in The Gut Health Protocol, as well as some very old science that isn’t contained in the book, phages.

Phage Complete ™ has been specially formulated to contain no histamine or d-lactate producing bacteria strains, no FODMAP fibers, no maltodextrin, no sugar alcohols, etc. The proPhage Complete Bottlebiotic bacteria strains were selected for their ability to heal the gut, heal leaky gut, and downgrade biogenic amines (of which histamine is one). The strains included were all chosen by me to have the most benefit to the gut, while causing no harm. You’ll learn much more about each ingredient in Phage Complete in the “Phage Complete – Benefits Whitepaper” linked below.

Phage Complete also contains a unique new (actually very old, but rediscovered) prebiotic called phages. Those of you that know what phages are may be scratching your head as to why it I’m calling them a prebiotic; when I first heard it called that I too was scratching my head. But then it dawned on me why it is classified as such. Phages kill very specific bacteria, one phage strain basically kills one bacterial strain (and maybe some really close relatives). This makes them, very safe to use. When it kills bad bacteria the cells of the dead bacteria become food for the living beneficial bacteria. When you target bad bacteria and feed beneficial bacteria that “food” is “Prebiotic”. Anything that leads the growth of good bacteria in the gut is called a Prebiotic by the FDA. See the article linked below on Bacteriophage Therapy.

“Prebiotics have been defined as nondigestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon” — FDA.GOV

      1. Hello John Herron

        Thank you for the wonderful work you have done in solving gut health issues.
        I have just ordered your Phage Complete and am wondering about the packaging. Are the capsules packaged in foil to avoid radiation damage when they pass through Australian customs?
        Again, thanks so much for your help, your research and advices have changed my life.
        Kind regards

        1. Sorry for the slow reply, I did address this for you in the Facebook group. In short, probiotics are not damaged in the least by standard x-rays, only by irradiation. Irradiation is approximately 2 million times stronger than a chest x-ray. Irradiation is only used for mail addressed to U.S. Federal offices in Washington D.C. (this is to combat Anthrax). See this from the U.S. EPA

          1. Sorry for duplicating the question John, I wasn’t sure where I should write so copied to facebook.

            Kind regards

  1. I don’t see and numbers next to the strains. I have read many articles that say one should only use probiotics that have the strain number.

    1. There are more and more proprietary strains (not GMO, selective breading, just like all of our vegetables). Each company trying to improve the benefits. The strain number is becoming less and less relevant because of that. But the probiotics are becoming more and more beneficial.

  2. John, is this product recommended for those without SIBO? (Large intestine dysbiosis only)

    Seeking something to help with bloating/C. Currently in 2nd month of healing phase & no relief yet.

    Thank you!

    1. Not likely. In order to kill bacterial cells the dilution would have to be high enough to damage human cells as well. Iodine would also kill good bacteria. Killing good bacteria sets you up for a host of other problems (such as a possible c.diff infection) and a recurrence of the original problem. Beneficial bacteria in the gut provide us with a wide range of benefits (including helping with digestion and disease prevention), they really need to be preserved. We need to focus on selective kill supplements, such as those discussed in the book and in Phage Complete.

  3. Hi John,

    Is it feasible to l research a cheaper shipping option outside the United states? I’d really like to try this product but with the shipping and tax/customs I’m looking at $100 per pot of tablets


    1. Because probiotics can be damaged by long exposure exposure to high temperatures the product must go by expedited shipping. I’m using one of the least expensive air mail forms, Priority Mail. I’m afraid there is nothing I can do about that or about customs taxes. Sorry.

      1. This is disappointing, the shipping cost is nearly the cost of the item, i’d like to try it but shipping to AU kills it for me.

        1. Jacob, the probiotics in the formula are shelf-stable and don’t require refrigeration. But just like all probiotics, they should not be subject to days or weeks at a time of temps over 100°F (38°C). When shipping via ground/sea shipping this is very possible. Therefore I have to ship via air (Priority Mail). This is just how much it costs.

          I had two options, offer it for sale with a high shipping cost, or not offer it for sale at all. I figured this way people have the option to purchase it or not. The shipping for 1-4 bottles is the same amount, so purchasing 4 bottles at a time spreads that cost out. I also offer a discount for purchasing 4 bottles.

          Sorry, but this was the best I could do.

    1. Bacillus Subtilis is one of the most studied bacterial strains on the planet. It has been found time and time again to be safe and beneficial to the gut. All bacteria can become opportunistic given the right circumstances. Those circumstances for Bacillus Subtilis are someone that is already severely immunocompromised and near death. Under those circumstances that person already needs to be in an ICU because they shouldn’t even be breathing normal air. Bacillus Subtilis is a very common probiotic that has been used by people for many years, and is already a natural part of our gut.

      Bacillus Subtilis is often given to children and has been shown in studies with infants help infant diarrhea. PMID #6442626 It also been shown to be safe for the elderly PMID #27825987 and safe for everyone in between.

      “Chronic toxicity studies were performed on mice, rabbits, and pigs and showed no signs of toxicity or histological changes in either organs or tissues… B. subtilis strain may be considered as non-pathogenic and safe for human consumption.” PMID #17934835

      To compare Bacillus Subtilis with anthrax (as Part 2 of his article does) is just indigenous, there is a huge difference between the two. It would be like comparing the safety risks of Adolf Hitler to Albert Einstein or Mother Teresa. Except that Bacillus Subtilis is hard coded for being ultra low risk, Mother Teresa could have chosen to be mean if she wanted too.

      Btw: there is literally over one hundred thousand studies / papers on Bacillus Subtilis on PubMed, over 9,000 of them mention its safety. This is not something I worry about. Keep in mind I chose the strains to put in this formula, this is not a canned formula I put my label on. This was based on thousands of research studies I read that produced The Gut Health Protocol book, and even more studies reviewed for this product research.

      1. Thank you for taking the time to reply John.

        It’s difficult these days to filter all the information online and identify what’s actually helpful. Even when the vast majority of the functional medicine community supports HSO’s and Bacillus Subtilis, it’s still scary to read something that negative.

        PS. I bought your book last week. It’s the most complete resource on all this stuff that I’ve found and has been a huge help. It’s also reassuring to see all the sources cited immediately after each section.

  4. Hi John in your book you mention cinnamon bark oil is best to be consumed with fat. Just wondered if you have any suggestions on something to take it with? Thank you!!

    1. Most people mix it with coconut or olive oil, then mix it with it a warm or hot tea. A couple of people swear by it in their coffee and say it tastes great (I’m not a flavored coffee person myself). I use the Golden Sludge recipe in Appendix D in the book, basically a hot cocao drink made with soluble fibers, coconut oil and/or butter, a drop or two of cinnamon oil, and turmeric paste (but that can be left out if you wish). This tastes great. It also has the benefit of having soluble fiber. Larch tree fiber actually emulsifies the oils (allows water and oil to mix), so it is creamy and thicker than it would be otherwise.

      Some people just down it in a tbsp of coconut oil chased with water. I haven’t tried that myself as I think the above options would taste better.

  5. p.s. about 7 years ago I first started experiencing weird dizziness after eating which could last all day. I was convinced it was candida and started drinking water kefir on an empty stomach. It took about 9 months of daily consumption but it gradually started to ease. What I did find though was if I stopped the Kefir, after about 1 week the weird dizziness started creeping back. So I carried on with the Kefir religiously for about 4 more years.

    Last year I started with Chronic Sinusitis and stopped the Kefir after reading some probiotics produce histamine, I thought the Kefir might be causing it. Anyway sure enough the weird dizziness came back only this time I got a Hydrogen breath test which was positive for Hydrogen Sibo. So my theory is the Water Kefir kept the Sibo suppressed but was not enough to eradicate the overgrowth. Do you think that sounds like a sensible hypothesis? Best Regards!

  6. Your labeling does not exclude dairy…but more information I read states it has no d- lactate. If I am sensitive to dairy, will this probiotic not be good for me?

  7. I made a payment of the product on Thursday of last week and I did not receive information, I request to send information of my product to my mail
    Thank you
