Organize Your Supplement Schedule

Gut regimens are effective when wise.

Is a well-organized, informed gut supplement regimen a secret weapon toward pronounced microbiome improvement?

Is it better than a haphazard, disorganized approach?

When you need deep progress, it’s a great idea take gut supplements throughout the day.

And if we’re going to take supplements throughout the day — it makes sense to arrange them beneficially.

Some supplements need to be taken separately. Some, you’ll find, have their greatest effect in synergy with others.

This is no small word of warning:

Big mistakes with gut supplements can halt your momentum, distract you from better solutions, and even cause debillitating setbacks.

The best results — for your time, effort, and money — will come from your own wisdom and experience, and using them to formulate a thoughtful method of taking supplements.

True gut healing (with supplements) comes from two concepts:

1) Consistent, wise use of the best supplements

— Supplement Timing
— Combining synergistically

2) Avoiding the wrong products

…and then remembering what works — not stopping it — after you’ve made a little progress.

After all, the gut microbiome is a living and dynamic organism. It doesn’t ever stay the same, it’s always changing.

Which means you can change it, too, for the better.



The Three Types
of Gut Supplement




Tend to Kill All or Some Microbes.
  • Herbs (extracts & oils)
  • Enzymes
  • Minerals
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Monolaurin
  • Fulvic Acid



Tend to Kill the Bad & Feed the Good Microbes.
  • Colostrum
  • *Bee Products*
  • Turkey Tail
  • (Fulvic Acid)



Selectively Feed or Introduce Good Microbes.
  • Probiotics
  • Prebiotics

*Fulvic Acid* is a moderate-strength antimicrobial,
and only a very, very weak repopulator.

*Essential oils* & colostrum can deplete iron levels.


Each Day Has

7 Time Slots

…to take Gut Supplements

There is no perfect supplement timing.

You can take almost any gut supplement at any time — provided that supplement doesn’t cause you to feel poorly, or disrupt sleep.

Let’s first look at seven convenient times to take supplements.

Wake Up/Before Bed

  • Wake Up (A.M.)
  • Before Bed (P.M.)

With Meals

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

Between Meals

  • Mid-Morning
  • Mid-Afternoon

Here’s another way to look at it.

I’ve grouped together similar times. For instance:

  • upon waking, and before bed (1 & 7)
  • with meals (2, 4, & 6)
  • between those meals (mid-morning and mid-afternoon) (3 & 5).


24/7 Care

Do you have to take a supplement in each time slot? Absolutely not!

Strict rules usually don’t heal the gut.

But if you need deep, true progress, you’ll almost certainly want to take supplements throughout the day.

As I’ve been saying for some time now: “True gut transformation requires around-the-clock attention.”

Taking gut supplements throughout the day — around-the-clock — is the best method I’ve seen that allows people to take hold of their gut health sustainably.

What does around-the-clock mean, exactly?

  • It means taking supplements with meals — each time you eat.
  • It means taking supplements between meals — mid-morning and mid-afternoon.
  • And it means taking supplements before bed and when you wake up.

How important is it to identify the best supplements to take? Very much! Identifying the best supplements for you critical!

Only take supplements that are actually helpful.

Unfortunately, many don’t — or worse: many can cause harm.

Finding helpful supplements is simple, though it does take time.

Following this path, anyone can identify useful gut supplements:

  • Smart product recommendations from wise, trusted mentors (preferably without a financial conflict of interest)
  • Trying new products in isolation, observing the results
  • Starting new products slowly
  • Formulating our own opinions about each product
  • Understanding how the three types of gut supplements work together
  • Understanding how the three types of gut supplements affect the gut

When we’ve found truly helpful supplements, we use them in the most effective method: taking them throughout the day — never allowing pathogens the chance to be comfortable, to grow, and to become stronger.

The path toward healing is ultimate two-fold: Weaken pathogens — always pushing them down, closer to their dormancy — while also strengthening new beneficial microbes.


One Way to


The easiest way to simplify is to take the same supplements at similar times.


“Balanced” Supplements Between Meals

Balanced” supplements contain antimicrobial and repopulating qualities. Examples include:

  • Colostrum
  • All bee products
  • Turkey Tail
  • Fulvic Acid
Take “Balanced” supplements mid-morning and -afternoon.

“Balanced” supplements are usually the safest and gentlest supplements to begin with.

The more sensitive you are, the more you’ll need to focus on gentle supplements. Heightened sensitivity to supplements can reflect a need to improve gut health.

If you have trouble starting with even these gentle supplements, try them in the middle of a meal to build up tolerance for a few days/weeks.


Take Killers At Meals.

Anti-microbials “kill” microbes. They include:

  • Enzymes
  • Herbal extracts & oils.

For a more intense “killing” effect, take 15-30 minutes before a meal.

Take “Antimicrobial” supplements prior to meals.

After you’ve successfully added “Balanced” supplements — and things are going well — you might look to add some digestive aids or “killers” with meals. Most digestive aids taken with meals have antimicrobial activity. Taking these with food helps prevent unwanted pathogens from digesting your food — and growing.

Some people need to kill more aggressively — for instance, when pathogens appear to be heavily overgrown and dominant. Killers taken on an empty stomach will be more disruptive to the microbiome (than when taken with food).


Repopulate At Wake-Up & Before Bed.

Repopulate the gut with good microbes using:

  • Prebiotic fiber
  • Probiotics
“Repopulate” upon waking and before bed.

Repopulation is the end goal of restoring the microbiome.

In severe cases, probiotics are not well tolerated. In this reality, repopulation should wait until progress has been made and probiotics can be tolerated.

Start with slow doses of probiotics without prebiotic fiber. Prebiotic fiber is only safe and effective when significant progress has been made in the gut.

Heightened sensitivity to supplements (& foods) can reflect a need to improve gut health.
