Look what happened to Leslie with Wheat Belly + L. reuteri


Leslie has been following the entire Wheat Belly lifestyle with breathtaking results to show for it. More recently, based on our numerous conversations here and elsewhere, she added L. reuteri. Interestingly, although all the skin health and anti-aging benefits have been observed only with the ATCC PTA 6475 and DSM 17938 strains, Leslie took the UALre-16 strain from Nature’s Way, suggesting that this strain may also boost oxytocin and thereby provide all the skin and health benefits of the other strains.

Who should NOT do the L. reuteri yogurt?

Because consumption of the L. reuteri yogurt made with the ATCC PTA 6475 and DSM 17938 strains work by raising levels of oxytocin (in addition to local probiotic benefits on reducing H. pylori and acid reflux, for example, unusual for its upper, not just lower, gastrointestinal benefits), there are people who probably should not consume the yogurt..

The unique probiotic effects of L. reuteri

We’ve lately been discussing (some would say obsessing) about the unique benefits of consuming the microorganism Lactobacillus reuteri, specifically the ATCC PTA 6475  and DSM 17938 strains (available from Swedish company, BioGaia, as the Gastrus product). Benefits such as increased skin thickness, dramatically increased dermal collagen, accelerated healing, reduced inflammation, preservation or increased bone density, turning off appetite, increased empathy, facilitation of fasting, increased libido, etc. are all mediated via L. reuteri’s unusual capacity to stimulate oxytocin release from the hypothalamus. So many of the most visible and measurable health benefits from our yogurt making with this strain of L. reuteri are due to higher levels of oxytocin.

The Wheat Belly L. reuteri Skin Challenge

(Stock photo–not a real example.)

I would like to offer you a fun and exciting challenge in skin health that has potential to smooth your skin, reduce wrinkle depth, increase sebum/moisture in as little as 3-4 weeks, changes that can be visible. We do this by ingesting the L. reuteri prebiotic fiber-infused (for higher bacterial counts) high-fat yogurt we have been making.
