    Ok Tatertot you seem to know a lot about gut health. I am always working on mine and find it improving slowly but surely. I was wondering what else you do/recommend to keep our gut biosphere healthy? So far for me I am doing 4 tablespoons potato starch, kombucha, prescript assist probiotic (it's soil based), fermented cod liver oil, vit C, and magnesium. So what am I missing? I find this all fun and intriguing, considering I am the daughter of two MDs who has had over 20 rounds of antibiotics

    I know, he's such a crap actor and he's got that awkward pause almost like a half assed Christopher Walken. And his family is so quiet and awkward it actually makes it sort of terridorable.

    I bet he gets so much shit for trying to clean up his image by putting kids around him.

    Eggs made me think I need to add chorizo to this shit. And get an oven...

    I'm on the fence about tapioca starch. In theory it should contain almost as much RS as potato starch, but in reality I don't think it does. Tapioca starch has to be processed differently than potato starch because raw cassava contains cyanide, I am afraid the processing removes the RS.
    Awesome thanks for the advice.

    Guess I'll be ordering potato starch then after all.

    Two more quick questions. Does adding RS to things like mashed potatoes make them gummy? And does potato starch work well as a thickener without heating it too much?

    I'm having what one might consider normal amounts of gas for the introduction of a "new" food. I'm also constipated. Should the slower passage of this fiber speed up the colonization process? One would assume yes, but - I'm no scientist. As such, this constipation might actually lead to sooner digestive efficiency and less gas, right? And yes, now I'm boiling and refrigerating the potatoes for several hours before eating them...

    Roasting is done at higher heat and generally the potatoes would be cut up, giving more surface area. Baking potatoes is usually done whole, which basically steams the potato. The less water involved in the cooking, the more RS there will be. It's strange, I know. I wondered about that, too, when I saw it.

    I love what you are doing, I do almost the exact same things. Maybe you already do these, too, but avoid vegetable oil and wheat at all costs. Lots of walking--30-60 minutes a day. Lots of anti-oxidant, polyphenol rich foods like berries, dark chocolate, colorful veggies--especially purple ones. Good herbs like ginseng, turmeric, basil, and that kind of stuff. Also, try mixing 1/2 - 1 TBS of psyllium husk with the potato starch. It contains mucilage which is good for the gut and also allows the potato starch to travel further along in the large intestine.

    If you really want to kick gut health up a notch, start at the mouth. I 'oil pull' every day for 20 minutes with sesame oil. It is an ancient oral health procedure (aryuvedic) that removes pathogenic microbes from the mouth and possibly chelates mercury from old fillings...if you have bad teeth or dental problems at all, I'd highly recommend it.

    Not gummy, some call it grainy. Won't thicken at all until heated. I like it mixed with yogurt. I'll also mix it with sour cream and put it on a baked potato after potato has cooled quite a bit. You'll know when you get it too hot, it gets gummy really fast.

    You really need to refrigerate them at least over night or 24 hours. I don't know what to say about your constipation. If it was me, I'd do 2-4TBS of potato starch mixed with yogurt once a day, fermented foods at every meal, some soil based probiotics, and all the other stuff like what Muppet said above.

    Let those who have dyspepsia—and that means a multitude of ills which the American people in their luxurious habits are fast bringing upon themselves—try for a time the potato diet. We have tried it not for months, but a few days at a time—long enough to satisfy us of its good effects. Newspaper article from 1849

    Read this blog entry today:
    For GI Readers | The HSD

    This blogger has been dealing with constipation her whole life and treating it with GAPS for about 20 months, but still completely dependent on magnesium citrate for motility. She tried supplementing butyrate (specifically magnesium-calcium butyrate) and does not need the magnesium citrate at all. I first read about butyrate by some of the pro-RS folks around here. I am now highly encouraged to try supplementing some resistant starch! Potato starch, here I come. I guess I'll start making yogurt again so I have something to mix it into.

    I do Psyllium Husk Powder. Have you ever read any of this blog: Animal Pharm? You'd fit right in!

    Ok, I am rabbit holeing with psyllium seed versus husk. Mark says do the seed powder.... Is that what you are recommending or the husk powder?
    Gotta love nutrition!

    I have been under the impression that all 'psyllium' is actually psyllium husk--and it comes ground or whole.

    I found where Mark said this last year:
    Psyllium Fiber

    Psyllium fiber comes two different ways, with each having a different effect on your bowels and their movements. Psyllium husk, which is the popular type of pysllium fiber found in most supplements, comes from the exterior of the psyllium seed and is almost entirely insoluble fiber. It bulks up your poop and can help move things along, but it’s pretty much an inert polysaccharide. Your gut bacteria can’t do much with it, let alone your “own” digestive system. If you need to fill a toilet bowl, psyllium husk will do it.

    Psyllium seed powder, however, is mostly soluble fiber. That means it’s a prebiotic, fermentable fiber that can feed and support your gut flora and spur the creation of beneficial short chain fatty acids like butyrate. In fact, psyllium seed has been shown to increase butyrate production by 42%, an effect that lasted for two months after treatment.

    I’m not a fan of pounding out massive dump after massive dump just because you can. I mean, sure, you don’t want to be stopped up and unable to go when you want to, but there’s nothing inherently good or beneficial about padding your bowel stats and rending your bowel walls with insoluble fiber. Soluble, prebiotic fiber? Via the production of short chain fatty acids, that stuff can actually help reduce colonic inflammation, improve insulin sensitivity, protect against obesity, serve as an energy source for the colon, and possibly even protect against colon cancer. Thus, a case for psyllium seed fiber supplementation can certainly be made.

    Verdict: Cautiously Primal, so long as you’re using the seed powder. But I’d rather you get your fermentable fiber in whole food form. Psyllium husk? Not Primal.

    Read more: Is Psyllium Husk Primal or Paleo? | Mark's Daily Apple
    When I search for supplements I See psyllium seed husk, husk powder or whole seeds. I don't see 'seed powder'. Have you?

    I like the husk powder. It is nearly pure mucilage which has a proven gut health track record. Whole husks are fine, I just think powder is a better value.
