Product Description

The original CHAMP Pro was a combination product of aloe (CHAMP = CHained Aloe MucoPolysaccharides) and probiotics (Pro = Lactobacillus acidophilus & Bifidus longum). The new and improved CHAMP Pro Plus has added baobab powder—a rich prebiotic source of resistant starch and soluble, fermentable fiber that supports the growth of probiotic bacteria and energy-producing butyric acid in the gut.

“CHAMP” = Aloe (CHAMP = CHained Aloe MucoPolysaccharides)
Aloe is a source of acemannan, a plant polysaccharide found in the inner leaf gel of this plant that has been shown to reduce ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, irritable bowel syndrome, and other gut conditions in numerous research studies. A further benefit of acemannan is that when it breaks down in the intestine to the monosaccharide mannose, glycosylation occurs which allows these mannose sugars to attach to proteins or lipids. This process results in glycolipids and glycoproteins that make up cell walls and are vital to intercellular communication. Optimal and appropriate intercellular communication in the body can repair and even potentially eliminate the cellular miscommunication that underlies chronic autoimmune dysfunction and disease.

Modern research on aloe has thus proven what has been known since antiquity: That aloe is an astonishingly effective and healing herbal remedy for the gut. The only change in this new CHAMP Pro Plus formula is that an even better source of aloe has replaced the former one that was used. This new (still organic and non-GMO) source of aloe is from the beautiful and pristine Hainan Island in the South China Sea.

“Pro” = Probiotics (Pro = Lactobacillus acidophilus & Bifidus longum)
In addition to the acemannan and mannose constitutents, high quality probiotic supplementation also helps regulate and optimize immune system functioning in the body through building a healthier microbiome (microbial gut environment). These probiotic strains have demonstrated the ability to neutralize dietary toxins and carcinogens by both lowering the pH of the colon and attaching tightly to the intestinal lining so that no disease-producing pathogens can gain a foothold. There these beneficial bacteria continue to compete against the overgrowth of infectious microorganisms such as Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella enterica (commonly trigger food poisoning), Candida albicans (cause bloating and yeast infections), Helicobacter pylori (overgrowth can lead to chronic gastritis and ulcers) and Clostridium difficile (can cause colitis and diarrhea). In addition, probiotics help support balanced blood sugar levels, can reduce obesity, synthesize vitamins A, B and K, increase the absorption of calcium, have been shown to decrease allergic symptoms, and can reduce anxiety and depression. More recent research has revealed that probiotics can even remediate environmental toxins and protect pregnant women against the absorption of mercury up to 36% and of arsenic by up to 78% (J. Bisanz, et al, mBio, Sept/Oct 2014).

The two probiotics, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidus longum, which were in the original CHAMP Pro, are included in the new CHAMP Pro Plus as well. It should be noted that in comparison to other probiotic supplements, these two bacterial species are the highest quality possible. Disturbing double-blind research studies have revealed that most probiotics are not only deficient in the bugs they claim to have on the label, but that many contain significant amounts of pathogenic bacteria as well. (S. Berman, D. Spicer. Safety and Reliability of Lactobacillus Supplements in Seattle, A Pilot Study. Internet Journal of Alternative Medicine, 2003, Volume 1, Number 2.) In contrast the Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidus longum in this formula are based on ATCC prototypical bacterial strains with confirmed molecular identity. The ATCC laboratory in Virginia is the largest repository in the world and the ultimate gold standard for probiotic bacteria. Molecular identity is based on 16sRNA sequencing and is confirmed with each batch to help ensure that only the highest quality and most functional microorganisms are included in each bottle.

“Plus” = New Baobab Prebiotic
Baobab prebiotic powder is the exciting newest addition to CHAMP Pro! “Prebiotic” is the term used for substances that support the implantation, growth and proliferation of probiotic bacteria such as L. acidophilus and B. longum. Baobab is classified as a “resistant starch.” This means that it resists getting fully digested in the stomach and small intestine, and passes through relatively intact into the large intestine. There the bacteria digest it through fermentation and turn it into short-chain fatty acids (SCFA’s). The most important SCFA is butyrate, which gives us energy and is the preferred fuel of the colon cells. Butyrate has been shown to help prevent inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and colon cancer.

The resistant starch found in the baobab fruit and the short chain fatty acids it yields has been shown in research studies to favorably change the composition of friendly versus pathogenic microorganisms in the gut, slow glucose absorption to help control blood sugar levels by reducing insulin resistance, increase satiety and weight loss, reduce inflammatory allergic responses and improve immune system functioning (over 60% of the immune system is located in or around the digestive system). Several studies have demonstrated that this prebiotic fiber can additionally help support optimal cardiac functioning by reducing inflammation and blood pressure.

Baobab is exceptionally rich in nutrients including vitamin C (why it has a citrus-y flavor), thiamine, vitamin B6 and dietary fiber (75% of which is soluble). In fact, this “superfruit” has more vitamins and minerals than is typically found in oranges, bananas and even blackcurrants. Baobab contains as many as 18 minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc—and a “virtual absence of heavy metals.” (I. Baidoo, et al. “Major, minor and trace element analysis of baobab fruit and seed by instrumental neutron activation analysis technique,” Food and Nutrition Sciences, 2013, Volume 4, 772-778.)

Baobab fruit has been eaten by traditional cultures all over the world for thousands of years as a daily food, and medicinally in greater amounts to reduce acute dysentery , as well as chronic diarrhea and constipation. It has also been recommended for pregnant and nursing mothers, and in some instances is included in baby food for infants. (A. Prentice, et al. The calcium and phosphorus intakes of rural Gambian women during pregnancy and lactation. British Journal of Nutrition, Volume 69, Number 3, 1993, 885-896.) The Hadza of Tanzania, often referred to as the “last true hunter-gatherers in the world,” eat this baobab fiber daily. Recent studies have shown that the Hadza have an exceptionally healthy and diverse gut microbiome—far superior, in fact, to the US and European populations studied. (S. Schnorr, et al. “Gut microbiome of the Hadza hunter-gatherers,” Nature Communications, 2014, Volume 5, Number 3654, 1-20.)

The baobab tree (Adansonia Digitata L.) grows plentifully in Africa and is often referred to as the “Ancient Tree of Life” since some of these trees have been reported to be up to 1000 years old. The fruit is unusual in that it is the only fruit in the world that dries out naturally while still on the branch of the tree. The benefit of this is that these dried fruit pods are easily harvested when they fall to the ground, which greatly reduces the amount of handling and processing of this natural supplement. In fact, the seeds only have to be mechanically separated from the pods, and the powder is then passed through a sieve to render a finely textured powder that mixes easily in water. Another benefit is that there are no baobab tree plantations; each tree is community-owned and wild-harvested. Thus, utilizing baobab powder supports rural communities and individuals—not big corporations.

DOSAGE SUGGESTIONS:

Adults – take 1 scoop (500 mg or ~ one-fourth of a teaspoon) mixed in a little water to dissolve, at least ten minutes away from meals (best first thing in the morning), daily or every other day. Sensitive or ill individuals may want to begin with a gentler dosage of less than 1 scoop, taken only one to two times a week initially, and then build up from there.

Infants and Children – 1 scoop taken approximately two times a week. If your child is ill and/or very sensitive, begin with less than one scoop one time only, and then closely monitor his/her symptoms (mood, energy and focus, bowel movements, etc.) in order to decide on the most appropriate future individualized dose. However, for an acute infection when stronger measures can be appropriate, a dosage of two times a day may be indicated as long as the child keeps improving. Then taper off by slowly reducing this dosage when symptoms begin to abate.

    I’m really liking your champ-pro. Please send another bottle to the same address as before. Thanks for the great product!
    Slight detox on the first dose but have been taking it every other day lately and it feels great. I think all of my past work has prepared me for this. How wonderful!

    This was recommended to me by my GAPS practitioner and it’s been wonderful! I feel a sense of calmness and coolness in my gut after taking it. I will continue this supplement even when I’m off the GAPS diet.

    I heard a lecture from Dr. Williams, have met her, and also read the CASPERS e-book. I purchased Champ pro, and almost without fail, whenever I take it, my system becomes perfect (like when you are a kid and you just have a natural bowel function) as opposed to alternating constipation/ diarrhea, etc. I also had an amazing improvement in long term hemorrhoids (that started 24 years ago after having babies). I probably need surgery, but I took this for a week or so and thought they were nearly gone, as they had improved so much. I have to admit, I got busy and stopped for a few weeks and the problems came back. Just took it today and again, amazing improvement! I have taken lots of probiotics and eaten many probiotic foods, so it wasn’t like this supplement was the first time I had taken a probiotic. It seems almost too good to be true for me. I find it easiest to put the 1/4 tsp. in a baggie with the bottle to get the powder out (since it has a longer handle to reach all the way into the bottle).

    This is an amazing product! My bowel movements have normalized in size, content and frequency. It is quite obvious that digestion and elimination have been enhanced by Champ Pro Plus. I am experiencing a sustained increase of energy and brightness of mood.

    I would recommend starting out with a very low dose and building up slowly. Let your body tell you how much it wants.

    I had jaw surgery about 6 years ago and since then I haven’t been able to hear very well out of 1 ear – it feels plugged and tingling. After taking the CHAMP for 1 1/2 weeks it popped open! I has been open ever since and the tingling is gone and my hearing is normal. I know it was the CHAMP because I changed nothing else those 10 days except for taking it. Great to have this disturbing surgery symptom cleared!

    This probiotic is amazing! It’s made a real difference in healing my gut and I’ve seen noticeable improvements in both my skin (eczema) and with food sensitivities. It will definitely stay in my probiotic rotation as it’s one of the best probiotics in the market right now.

    My husband’s digestion has completely turned around! The first week he took the CHAMP every day and felt a little sick. After I cautioned him to take it only every other day, his loose stools and diarrhea that came on immediately after he ate are now gone! He has normal bowel movements – 1 to 2 times a day – with no urgency at all. The CHAMP Pro Plus is amazing!

    I appreciate that your website provides a thorough product/ingredient description, but I am troubled by the total absence of any information regarding serving size or servings per container, other than “use one scoop”. Are you hiding something? The product is fairly pricey, so how can I make an informed decision when you are withholding important info?

    I bought just one bottle of CHAMP Pro Plus from Green Pasture because I wanted to try it, especially after reading what the health benefits are. If they hadn’t started selling this on their site, then I never would have known that it exists. This is my first-ever probiotic (and prebiotic – which I have never heard of before). I’ve seriously never taken anything like this before. I was only willing to try it when I saw it on Green Pasture’s website because that’s how much I trust their judgment. To me, Green Pasture is the best of the best.

    I’m a 37-year old man who has Asperger’s Syndrome, which is a mild form of Autism. So, I feel that it’s even more important for me to take something like this, especially at my age. I learned around a year or two ago that experts say that at around age 35, people with Autism start having much higher risks of serious health problems, many of which CHAMP Pro Plus is reported to address. Prior to learning about how I could start having much more serious health problems at around this age, I thought that Autism was just a harmless disability!

    Anyway, I had my first dose (1 whole scoop) about 30 minutes ago and I’m already feeling it. I really love how I feel so far, but it’s hard to explain using words. It’s just, very pleasant. I feel better, but I didn’t know that I could feel better. I love how I feel! I already take 1 tsp every single day (each) of Fermented Cod Liver Oil, Fermented Skate Liver Oil and High Vitamin Butter Oil. I actually tale the capsules (6 of each) because I’m a bit of a wimp like that, but still, when I take my oils I feel fantastic. EVERYTHING is better, including my energy and stamina and endurance. What I’m trying to say is, CHAMP Pro Plus is kind of a similar boost to how I feel, but it’s in ADDITION to the way I feel after taking the oils. I am also feeling better in other ways, ways that I’ve never experienced before but I don’t know how to explain. It’s like I’m happier and calmer or something. This is amazing!

    At the time of writing this paragraph, it has been about an hour since my first dose because I’ve been editing and proofreading and changing what I’ve typed above, and I’m continuing to feel better and better. At this point, I have already decided that, just like with the oils, I will NEVER stop taking CHAMP Pro Plus.

    I took this dose on an empty stomach with about 6oz of water (I’m guessing). I didn’t enjoy the taste much, but I don’t care. I’m never going to stop taking this! Thank you, Dr. Louisa Williams!

    It’s working!!! Thank you again!!!! (In response to taking CHAMP Pro Plus 1 time a day and rubbing Notatum 4X drops on the skin over her child’s infected tonsils 4 times a day until she is better).

    Thank you very much! This was very helpful because now I understand dosing much better, especially after some slight experimentation of my own thanks to your help.
    The CHAMP stimulated bowel movements in the beginning, but that could’ve been a mild detoxification effect. Besides, it’s great to wake up to the feeling this gives and then take my Green Pasture oils about 10 minutes after. Combining the two like this has VERY nice effects and it’s a great way to start my day. Then taking the CHAMP with the oils shortly before bed is nice too. I think one of the reasons for the great synergy is due to how helpful and beneficial it is for the digestive system. I’m guessing that the CHAMP supercharges the digestive system for maximum absorption and assimilation of whatever you eat soon after. It’s great stuff!

    I have tried many probiotics but the CHAMP is the only one that I can feel a difference with…In fact, I can literally feel it acting beneficially in my gut! My abdominal muscles have even tightened up (after taking it about a month or so) = less fat and bloating. This is the one probiotic that actually works!

    I just recently started taking the Champ Pro Plus and absolutely love this product.

    In my opinion it is the gold standard of probiotics. Through my business I intend on informing the people I know of it’s superior quality.
    Thank you for your feedback and for supplying a rapidly growing culture of consciousness.

    In appreciation.

    We love Champ Pro Plus in our family! Even our toddler (3yrs old ) takes it. It’s the first probiotic supplement that after taking we have all noticed improved health; boost in energy, resolved gut issues; and since taking we are the only family we know who did not get sick during cold and flu season. I am recommending it to my parents and friends and everyone I know . A very high quality and effective supplement!
