ProHealth FundraisingFunding Research to Find Cures
Knowing that research is the key to finding cures for chronic, debilitating diseases, ProHealth has raised and donated more than $3.5 million to organizations researching fibromyalgia, ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other conditions.

You Help Make it Possible
As a crucial part of our mission, a portion of each purchase you make goes toward this fundraising effort. This is such a high priority that in some years our donations outpaced our profits. Thank you for helping support our efforts.
The "active ingredients" in Tanalbit® are the "plant tannins" (condensed tannins), natural and powerful substances that act through their agglutinating/astringent effects. A "tannin" you might be familiar with comes in red wine... it is that biting taste you find in your merlots and cabernets. Another example is the redwood tree. The reason why redwood bark is so resistant to fungus and disease is because of the high "tannin" content of its bark. Tannins are well known for their antifungal properties.

What is the action of Tanalbit®?

Rather than being absorbed by the body, the Tanalbit® tannin complex attaches itself to fungal/yeast/bacterial cells. This "attachment" prevents the unwanted tenants from colonizing and metabolizing, and the unwanted organisms die, exiting the body in the feces (The body itself "digests" out the Tanalbit®/yeast complex). Initially one may experience constipation/diarrhea due to the removal of unwanted yeast/bacteria, however, this quickly subsides (within 2-3 days). Tanalbit® will actually help diarrhea symptoms because its natural astringency helps to repair permeable and/or weakened GI cells, allowing them to regain their strength, normal activity, and thus also restoring normal peristaltic activity.

What are other applications for Tanalbit®?

Tanalbit® is also extremely helpful in the following problems: toxicity buildup, bloating, gas, diarrhea, yeast and bacterial overgrowth, food allergies and/or food sensitivities/intolerance. As a result of its gastrointestinal support, Tanalbit® may help decrease debilitating fatigue.

The Tanalbit® formula is based on the powerful astringency and high antioxidant content (high proanthocyanidin content) of natural condensed tannins. The other component of Tanalbit® is lotus rhizome extract which provides synergistic activity in its ability to disable microbial/mycotic organisms. Use of Tanalbit® for yeast, fungal or bacterial issues is commonly 6 weeks, more or less depending on the individual.

Why is Tanalbit® a superior gastrointestinal support product?

Because Tanalbit® is complexed with casein, a protein with hydroxyproline and proline amino acids, it is able to bypass degradation by stomach acid and effectively target the large intestine and colon. The action is important for two reasons. First, it ensures that Tanalbit® is effective and second, it ensures that Tanalbit® targets the lower intestine where most infestations remain entrenched. Anti-fungals complexed without a protein as complex as casein are simply not as effective in comprehensively reaching the GI.

Tanalbit® and Dosage Suggestions

Tanalbit ® is best taken before meals, approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour before, or, with a small snack if one cannot tolerate Tanalbit® on an empty stomach. Do not take Tanalbit® after large meals or with other supplements/medications. Allow at least 1 hour between supplements as Tanalbit® needs to work without competition from other supplements/medications. The suggested dosage for Tanalbit® is 2-3 capsules 3 times a day; 9 capsules is optimal. Tanalbit® works in a gradual manner, and requires your body to eliminate yeast/bacteria + the Tanalbit® complex (hence the need for a larger dosage as well as a regimen that works throughout the day instead of all at once).

A person who suffers from yeast/fungal problems should in any case already be following a strict diet regimen. Some basic rules: avoid sugar, refined carbohydrates and citrus.

Maintenance Program

Intensive Nutrition® recommends that an individual follow a nine capsule a day regimen (3 capsules, 3 times a day). However, we stress that you follow your health provider's advice first and foremost! Please remember that this is only a suggestion, not a prescription, and based on the use of Tanalbit® ALONE.

After a period of between 4-6 weeks, one should not stop taking Tanalbit® but rather begin a "maintenance program" of at least 4 weeks (more or less depending on initial dosage). The calendar below shows the dosage for a person taking nine capsules a day. Similar reduction of one capsule per week is suggested.

Tanalbit Suggested Mainteance Program

We discourage individuals from ending Tanalbit® completely as small remnants of infestation can remain and can trigger another infestation. After the fourth week, the regimen should continue until 1 capsule daily is consumed.

Gluten FreeGluten Free    
One capsule provides: Zinc tannates 425 mg with Quebracho, Casein (milk) 30 mg, L-Proline 5 mg, Lotus Rhizome extract 20 mg.

Potential Side Effects

Tanalbit® is a non-toxic, herbal supplement. Tanalbit® works indirectly in the body and so side-effects are very minimal, if any. Some symptoms that some may experience are constipation and nausea and occasionally, die-off. The tannins in the Tanalbit® may cause constipation in some, and if this occurs, we suggest taking a Magnesium or Vitamin C supplement and/or a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to alleviate constipation and help with digestion, in addition to increasing water intake (by at least 2x's as much).

In cases of nausea, we suggest first eating some food with the dosage, and if this does not help, then reducing the dosage (please consult your health professional before changing your dosage). According to the PDR for herbal medicine, one of the plant components of Tanalbit®, Quebracho extract, sometimes can cause mild dizziness, nausea,sweats, anxiety or sleeplessness in very sensitive individuals. If this occurs, consider altering your regimen (either by consuming food w/capsule or lowering dosage), and consult your health provider.
