What is ParaFree?
ParaFree is a softgel that contains very concentrated amounts of essential oils like cumin, thyme, clove, anise, fennel, vetiver, bay laurel, ocotea, patchouli, and lemongrass (just to name a few). It also is a uniquely Young Living supplement because it contains dorado azul from our farm in Ecuador. This is an essential oil that no other company offers.
How do I take ParaFree?
To use ParaFree take 3 softgels two times daily. It is also best to take ParaFree on a cycle: take it for 21 days and rest for seven days. Cycle may be repeated three times. This cyclic approach is suggested is because there are times when we support gut health, that the gut needs time to recoup. You can get a larger impact when you target different stages in a life cycle. Get maximum results taking on an empty stomach. Some people cannot tolerate the assertiveness of the essential oils, and choose to take it with food.
Who should take ParaFree?
ParaFree is a great supplement for anyone looking for extra support for the gut. Start with dietary enzymes such as Essentialzyme and a proboitic like Life 9 first. If you still want additional support, add ParaFree.
Are there any precautions?
ParaFree is labeled for use in children and adults older than 12 years old. Women who are pregnant or nursing should collaborate with their health care provider and feel confident to ingest all of the essential oils in ParaFree before starting.
There are some theoretical drug interactions to consider. Eugenol (the primary constituent in clove essential oil) may induce drug metabolizing enzymes CYP1A1/2 and CYP2B1/2. a-pinene (found in nutmeg essential oil) may induce CYP4A2. Inducing enzymes increases the risk that the drug levels in the body will go down. Peppermint oil may inhibit CYP3A4, and this increases the risk that drug levels will go up. Talk to your pharmacist about how your medicines are metabolized and know the signs and symptoms of medication side effects before starting.
The most common side effect from ParaFree is burping. If this happens to you, be sure to take ParaFree with food.
ParaFree does contain tilapia and carp, so avoid if you are allergic to these ingredients.
