I am very suspicious about the word "micelle". Different companies get novel ideas about getting maximum absorption of certain compounds including vitamins. When Vitamin A and carotene are broken down (fragmented) into micelles (teeny, weeny fragments) they can get through the intestinal absorptive cell more efficiently. Is that good? I think not. It was and still is being used with Slow K (potassium supplements) and has been literally outlawed, but the company is still doing it. It is destroying intestinal cells by unbalancing them. Intestinal cells in healthy people "know" what to absorb - they have cellular controls. With all these new ideas of getting things through "come Hell or Highwater" I believe damage is being done.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
