You may be one of the billion people who suffer each year from occasional, unexpected bouts of bloating or diarrhea. The World Health Organization defines diarrhea as three or more loose or liquid bowel movement in a day. Bloating and ocassional diarrhea can last few hours or even days and is typically associated with abdominal cramps,severe gas,fatique even dehyraton. Diarrhea can be especially frustrating because you may not feel you can go far from home.
New Flora3 is made for you.
Flora3 is a totally new approach to digestive balance, featuring a probiotic, prebiotic and bacillus coagulan in one. Flora3 helps maintain intestinal health and bowel activity. And it is especially helpful for bloating and occassional diarrhea. Unlike conventional probiotic pills, you don’t need to swallow billions of fragile bacteria “bugs” Rather, Flora3 features a unique probiotic yeast called Saccharomyces Boulardii or S. Boulardii for short. S Boulardi is safe and remarkably effective – And it is so stable that needs no refrigeration.
Why S. Boulardii Is Special?
S. Boulardii was first isolated from tropical fruits in 1923 by French researcher Henri Boulard. Since then S. Boulardii has been extensively tested for intestinal health in children and adults, demonstrating a high level of safety and unusual intestinal benefit. S. Boulardii is a “good for you” yeast, not like pathogenic yeast that can cause infections.*
Different than other Probiotics
Most probiotic supplements contain bacteria such as lactobacillus, the same bacteria found in yogurt. When consumed, these “good” bacteria live in your intestine, helping your body absorb nutrients and remove toxins and waste. Unfortunately, these bacteria can be quite fragile. Many die in the bottle. Others are destroyed by stomach acid. Even those that survive may not live in the intestine very long. That leaves you vunerable. The S. Boulardii in Flora3 is not a bacteria at all – but a safe, highly active, probiotic yeast. It works differently than bacteria products. First, in vivo research suggests that S. Boulardii secretes a protease enzyme that breaks down or even digests toxins. Additional science indicates that certain pathogenic bacteria may end-up binding to the surface of S. Boulardii. Once bound, the pathogens are eliminated with the next bowel movement. Finally S. Boulardii may reduce the hyper secretion of water and electrolytes caused by certain toxins that may result in dehydration and other imbalances.*
Flora3 Then Goes Two Extra Steps
Flora3 also contains bacillus coagulans (B. coagulans). B. coagulans are also not typical bacteria. They contain no lactobacillus. But, in the body, they produce spores of lactic acid bacteria that populate the intestine. Preliminary research suggests that B. coagulans may benefit urinary tract health and immune response. B. coagulans are an emerging science in need of more human studies. But initial evidence suggests that they may complement the remarkable intestinal action of S. Boulardii.*
Finally, Flora3 features a special prebiotic blend. Prebiotics are designed to stimulate the growth of Bifidobacterium in the large intestine by creating ideal conditions for micro flora to colonize. The special prebiotic blend in Flora3 contains FOS, ionic minerals and fulvic acid. FOS is classified as inulin-like prebiotic. The ionic minerals and fulvic acid in the prebiotic blend also may create a suitable environment for bacteria growth.*
New Thinking in Flora Support.
Flora3 is different than ordinary probiotics. It combines prebiotics and bacillus coagulans with a safe, effective probiotic yeast. It is not fragile and It doesn’t need to be refrigerated. Just take as little as two capsules daily.

Called a “landmark case” by some, the federal court found FTC’s criticism of the company’s claims was simply a “difference of opinion” with the company providing evidence substantiating its key advertising points. The judge did not accept the FTC’s expert argument that AdvaCAL clinical studies were too flawed to serve as substantiation. In fact, he found those studies and other evidence sufficient to support the company’s position in this dispute.
Judge Dennis Cavanaugh of the US District Court of New Jersey denied the FTC motion, on the grounds that LaneLabs had “clearly offered support and substantiation for the claims regarding [AdvaCAL]…This is not a case of a company making claims out of thin air,” he stated in the opinion.The court noted that LaneLabs had hired a compliance officer and had also sought expert advice to interpret the scientific evidence it used to back its claims for AdvaCAL:
“LaneLabs found a product and obtained scientific evidence that the product is efficacious. LaneLabs then consulted experts who opined that the research supporting the product and the product itself were good,”
AdvaCAL calcium supplements have been marketed in health food retailers and through holistic doctors since 1999. The calcium is made through a patented process in Japan, in which oyster shells are super-heated, changing its chemical structure from calcium carbonate to a highly soluble calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide. The calcium then is combined with an amino acid extract of seaweed, called HAI, for advanced absorption.
Dueling Experts: A Difference of Opinion
During the April, 2009 hearing for the case, the FTC and LaneLabs each presented expert witnesses, who were physicians and calcium researchers. They were found by the court to be credible and knowledgeable in their respective fields of expertise. Judge Cavanaugh noted:
“In considering the testimony offered by all of the experts the difference between FTC’s experts and the Defendants’ experts came down to a difference of opinion – not necessarily matters of right and wrong,”
Importantly, the FTC’s expert never claimed that AdvaCAL was ineffective or represented a health risk to anyone. In addition, the court said FTC had provided no evidence that consumers had complained or were harmed by the use of the AdvaCAL calcium supplement.
FTC Oversteps Its Bounds?
According to Jonathan W Emord of Virginia-based law firm, Emord & Associates, the case is a signal victory. “This case recognizes largely for the first time that FTC’s discretion has limits and may not overcome good faith, science-backed efforts at compliance simply based on the whim or caprice of the agency’s enforcers,” he said. FTC vs Lane Labs was clearly a step backwards for FTC, and an advance for effective natural technologies such as AdvaCAL.

“We are excited to partner with the National Osteoporosis Foundation in a battle that can actually be won against premature bone loss.” said Andrew Lane, president of LaneLabs, (http://www.lanelabs.com) the nutritional company behind AdvaCAL. “With the incidence of osteoporosis growing, we believe it is especially important to support the leading advocate, NOF, in this effort.” According to NOF, osteoporosis is a preventable disease for many people. Yet 55% of adults 50+ today have or at are great risk of getting osteoporosis. And osteoporotic fractures are rising, potentially exceeding three million annually by 2025.
“NOF is thrilled to work with AdvaCAL as a proceeds partner,” said Amy Porter, National Osteoporosis Foundation Executive Director and CEO. “Several risk factors have been identified for osteoporosis, including individuals not getting enough calcium and vitamin D. Calcium is the building block of bone and Vitamin D is important because it helps your body use calcium. Many of the choices you make each day can affect your bones. By making healthier choices you can help to reduce your risk of osteoporosis as well as the painful fractures it can cause,” she continued.
AdvaCAL is natural ionic calcium. Oyster shells are smelted at high temperatures, creating a bioavailable calcium ash while removing lead and other impurities. The calcium is blended with HAI, an amino acid complex from seaweed. HAI has been scientifically demonstrated to boost calcium absorption.* Both the calcium and HAI in AdvaCAL have been awarded patents.
AdvaCAL is marketed as the #1 bone building calcium, backed by 20 years of research. AdvaCAL studies have reported significant improvement in bone mineral density among postmenopausal women and men. A report in a leading medical journal found that an AdvaCAL study had an impressive bone density increase among 32 calcium clinical studies between 1977 and 2008.*
LaneLabs is a supplier of premium natural health products. LaneLabs has been independently certified compliant in Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) by NSF International. LaneLabs products are sold through natural food stores and doctor offices nationwide.

The 2009 report entitled “The Effect of Calcium Supplementation on Bone Loss in 32 Controlled Trials in Postmenopausal Women” was authored by calcium researcher B.E.C.Nordin, MD of Australia.1 Nordin concluded that calcium intake generally prevented bone loss in postmenopausal women for at least four years. Results from the 32 studies showed a wide range of bone change from taking different calciums. Most only slowed the rate of bone loss. However, one study in which participants took AAACa calcium showed a marked 1.5% bone density increase per year, an impressive increase among among all 79 skeletal measures.
Results from this study dovetail with other published comparative calcium research. A 2007 meta-analysis in the journal, The Lancet, found that women taking AAACa calcium had a favorable fracture-risk change among 17 different calcium studies between 1992 and 2006. The 17 fracture studies involved men and women over 50, taking 6 different calciums either alone or with vitamin D over multiple years.2

AAACa, is a natural ionic calcium. It starts out as oyster shell, which is then smelted at 800° C. Smelting changes the chemical structure of oyster shell from calcium carbonate to calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide. The superheating process removes nearly all of the heavy metals, such as lead, found in oyster shell. the calcium is then potentiated with HAI™ (Heated Algal Ingredient). HAI is a patented amino acid complex from hijiki seaweed. Tiny amounts of HAI have been scientifically shown to further elevate calcium oxide & calcium hydroxide absorption.
“We are pleased but not surprised by AAACa’s top ranking in these studies” comments Andrew Lane” president of LaneLabs, Waldwick, NJ. LaneLabs sells AAACa calcium under the name AdvaCAL® , mainly in natural food stores. “AdvaCAL has shown impressive bone benefits in 20 published scientific studies. Leading researchers are starting to learn our little secret .”
