The Paleologix Story
Paleologix is the result of a meeting of the minds from two of Paleo's leading voices, Robb Wolf and Chris Kresser. Their work has helped hundreds of thousands of people from every walk of life use Paleo-based nutrition to achieve and maintain their health goals.
I noticed that some people seemed to backslide initially even with better eating. I quickly learned that quality digestive support could be a lifesaver. Paleologix offers that basic support. — Robb Wolf
As the author of the best-selling The Paleo Solution and founder of one of the first CrossFit affiliate gyms in the world, Robb Wolf is a research biochemist and athlete, and he has worked with thousands of people in the capacity of strength coach with a strong emphasis on enhancing performance through Paleo Nutrition. During the process of helping people transition to the Paleo diet, Robb noticed consistent patterns emerge; common obstacles and predictable complaints like blood sugar energy swings that made them feel like "they'd been hit by a ninja dart," as well as an array of digestive issues.
Chris Kresser, a licensed practitioner of integrative medicine, has seen thousands of his patients and readers turn their lives around with Paleo nutrition. They've come to him with everything from chronic fatigue and IBS to mysterious, previously undiagnosable symptoms. As patients transitioned to a Paleo-based diet plan, Chris observed that not all of them had the "instant success" one often reads about in online blogs. There were some common problems people experienced when making the transition to a Paleo diet, but there weren't any supplements on the market that specifically addressed these specific transition issues.
While I prefer that patients get nutrients from food when possible, when it is necessary to supplement, it is important to be selective and specific. The Paleologix line is extremely specific. It is for a certain person, at a very specific time, and for a finite period. — Chris Kresser
Chris and Robb realized they had both noticed the same problems and challenges and had been equally frustrated by the lack of a sound, science-based solution for far too long.
So, they joined forces to design Paleologix, the first custom-formulated, high-quality supplement system designed specifically to target these common Paleo-related health issues and make the transition to any Ancestral-based diet plan smoother and more successful for just about anyone.
Paleologix formulas were created with carefully sourced ingredients and a preference for non-chemical, natural, food-based nutrients whenever possible. The combinations are based on the solutions that both Chris and Robb have been using with patients and clients for years, but now improved and blended into four easy-to-take formulas combined into a supplement system designed with a singular focus on the short-term goal of a smooth and successful transition to the Paleo diet.
About Chris Kresser
Chris Kresser practices Functional Medicine, which is investigative, holistic, preventative, and evidence-based. In his practice, he focuses on helping patients who are motivated to play an active role in their own healing process and who are willing to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes to support health and wellbeing. He uses nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, supplements, stress management, and lifestyle changes to restore proper function.
Before they come to him, most of Chris' patients have tried several different dietary approaches in an attempt to feel better or lose weight, to boost their energy, or improve their health. Some of these diets failed, some did nothing at all, and some even worked – at least for a little while. Or maybe they solved some problems (being overweight) but caused others (low energy, hair loss, cold hands and feet).
The biggest success stories with patients in his clinic share at least one common factor: They've all had support and guidance through the transition to a new way of eating.
Chris Kresser was driven to the study of health and medicine by the need to find a solution to his own health crisis during his early 20's. Later, he graduated from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA and now has a private practice there. He also consults with patients nationally and internationally via telephone and Skype.
