About Stonehenge Health

Stonehenge Health Review

We can learn from our ancestors and the natural substances they used to heal themselves. Now combine those ancient healing practices with modern scientific breakthroughs and clinical evidence. Wouldn’t that make our journey to health optimization even better?

Evolving from ancient healing practices, my Stonehenge Health review will discuss several of its products for your gut, brain and pain relief.

I’ll dig deep into three of their products, ingredients, uses, benefits, possible downsides, customer ratings, promotions, and all other details you are looking for before you decide if you should buy.

Overview of Stonehenge Health

Stonehenge Health Review

Named after the ancient monument in Wiltshire, England, Stonehenge Health was founded by Dr. Jeffrey Sherman, a highly experienced board certified gastroenterologist. With his father as his inspiration, Dr. Sherman believes in the healing powers of proper nutrition. Combining this ancient knowledge with today’s scientific advancements, he developed several products. 

Dr. Sherman truly abides by the quote from Hippocrates, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” With this belief in mind, Dr. Sherman’s mission is to educate everyone on nourishing our bodies with good food and natural substances.  

All Stonehenge Health products are FDA-certified and manufactured under current good manufacturing practices in the United States. All products are manufactured in small batches and tested by third parties for quality assurance. 

Stonehenge Health makes several products such Dynamic Immunity and Incredible Digestive Enzymes, but my Stonehenge Health review will focus on three other products: Dynamic Biotics, Dynamic Brain, and Dynamic Turmeric

Each product is sold in a bright blue glass bottle with a picture of the Stonehenge monument on it to remind us that these products are inspired by ancient practices.

Now that you have a good idea of Stonehenge Health’s background, let’s dig into some of their products’ highlights:

Highlights

  • All products are non-GMO 
  • The three products covered here are gluten-free
  • All products are FDA approved and under cGMP
  • All products are tested by third parties for quality assurance 
  • All products are backed by scientific evidence

Next up in this Stonehenge Health review, I will look into three key products and how they help combine the best of ancient and modern medicine. With a lot of products geared to help optimize your health, which ones are right for you? Read on to find out.  

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Biotics Review

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Biotics Review
Stonehenge Health Dynamic Biotics Review

The first product I will look at contains probiotics and prebiotics that help balance the gut flora with good bacteria.

Probiotics are basically microorganisms like bacteria that live in our gut. When we take probiotics, we increase the number of good bacteria in the gut compared to the bad ones. Did you know we have more bacterial cells in our body than human cells!?

Prebiotics, on the other hand, are fiber that can’t be broken down by humans. It makes its way down to the colon intact[1] and serves as food for the good bacteria living there. This is how the good bacteria thrives in the colon and gives us many benefits. 

Before we get into more details on how this product works, my Stonehenge Health review will discuss what’s in it. 

Ingredients Label

Each capsule contains 16 strains of bacteria, with 51 billion Colony Forming Units per capsule. CFUs denote the number of bacteria present in each capsule.

Each capsule also contains prebiotics from chicory root extract, also known as inulin, and NutraFlora FOS (fructooligosaccharide). They both are categories of natural fibers that our good gut bacteria like to feast on!

Other non-active ingredients include vegetable cellulose, rice flour, vegetable grade kosher calcium palmitate E, and silica. 

Want to hear some more good news? There are negligible calories in each capsule. Although FOS is a type of carbohydrate, it is very low in calories, especially since each capsule contains 100mg of inulin and FOS combined.

Now that you know what’s in each capsule, in this Stonehenge Health review I would like to tell you some of this product’s benefits.

Benefits 

Although taking this mixture of probiotics and prebiotics has many benefits, here are five of the biggest benefits: 

  1. Helping with digestive issues such as gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation
  2. Improving your mood[2]
  3. Helping lower inflammation, reducing risk of chronic diseases[3] like cardiovascular diseases
  4. Prebiotics increase the absorption of minerals[4]  like calcium and magnesium, providing us with more energy
  5. Prebiotics also promote satiety and weight loss, according to this study[5]

This product specifically is also great because it does not need to be refrigerated. To top it off, it’s sold in a dark black glass bottle to prevent the probiotics from exposure to light. 

Even better, it’s delayed release coating allows more efficacy as it allows the probiotics to survive the stomach acids and reach the colon intact.

Okay, I’m not done yet since you are probably wondering how these probiotics work to give us so many benefits. I’m just about to explain that in this Stonehenge Health review.

How Does It Work

Probiotics are live bacteria taken to improve the balance[6] between the good and bad bacteria in the body in favor of the good. Once they make their way to the colon of the large intestine, they can improve our immune response. This is because 70% of our immune system lives in our gut.

Studies have shown[7] that probiotics can reduce the severity of GI-related symptoms by helping us better digest food. Probiotics also increase vitamin and mineral absorption[8], giving us more energy. They produce fatty acids called Short Chain Fatty Acids[9] which are beneficial compounds for protecting the intestinal wall lining and lowering inflammation.

Also, having a variety of bacterial strains is much more efficient than having a single strain, as this study[10] has shown. Luckily, Stonehenge Health Dynamics Biotics has done this by combining 16 strains in their pill. 

Suffice it to say that our job is to increase the quantity of good bacteria in our gut and provide them with food. Once we do that, our job is done and we pass on the torch to those bacteria to provide us with all those wonderful benefits. 

How to Take & Dosage 

Instructions to take this product are fairly easy: take one capsule on an empty stomach every day. 

Let’s take a look at this products cost: 

  • 1 bottle of 30 capsules is available for $50 
  • 3 bottles costs $44 per bottle
  • 6 bottles brings thee price down to $38 each

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Brain Review

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Brain Review
Stonehenge Health Dynamic Brain Review

The next product I will look at is a brain supplement made from natural ingredients to improve cognition, memory, focus, clarity, and mental energy.

Basically, this product contains a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals, along with a blend of naturally obtained substances to improve the overall functioning of the brain. 

The blend present in this product is a proprietary blend. This means that the individual amounts of each component are not mentioned. Even though this is legally allowed, consumers don’t know how much of each component they are taking exactly. Just so you know, this is permitted to prevent copyright issues as this blend is proprietary.

My Stonehenge Health review will now go through the extensive list of this supplement’s ingredients because I want you to know what’s exactly in this product.

Ingredients Label and Nutritional Value 

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Brain contains the following active ingredients in 2 capsules (PS: the list is long…):  

  • Vitamins: A (122 mcg RAE), B1 (3 mg), B2 (1.7 mg), B3 (12.5 mg NE), B5 (12 mg), B6 (12 mg), Biotin (3 mcg), folate (666 mcg DFE), D (3 mcg), E (14 mg)
  • Minerals: Calcium (20 mg), Iron (1 mg), Magnesium (50 mg), Zinc (10 mg), Selenium (50 mcg), Copper (52 mcg), Manganese (400 mcg), Chromium (12 mcg), Molybdenum (10 mcg), Potassium (19 mg)
  • Choline bitartrate (50 mg)
  • Proprietary blend (617 mg): DMAE bitartrate, l-glutamine HCl, glutamic acid, green tea extract, bacopa extract, inositol, bilberry fruit extract, gaba, grape seed extract, grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf, cinnamon bark extract, licorice root extract, boron, DHA 14%, vanadyl, phosphatidylserine, huperzine A

Inactive ingredients include cellulose, rice flour, magnesium stearate, and silicon dioxide. 

Since these supplements come in capsule form, they have negligible calories from fat, protein, or carbohydrates.

How Does It Work

Let’s take a look at how some of these ingredients work.

  • Choline bitartrate converts into Acetylcholine[11] when absorbed, which is our main communication neurotransmitter. This helps in memory and cognition
  • B vitamins are water soluble vitamins that provide[12] us with energy and are involved in several repair processes along with producing brain chemicals. Some research[12] has shown that B vitamins preserve brain health and prevent dementia
  • GABA is a neurotransmitter that can help relieve anxiety and stress[13] and elevate mood 
  • L-glutamine is needed to make glutamate[14] in the brain and is required for cognition and optimal brain functioning
  • DHA is a type of omega-3 fatty acid that makes up the majority of your brain cells[15]. It also helps in cognition. 
  • Huperzine A is obtained from the Chinese club moss plant, and also increases[16] Acetylcholine 
  • Phosphatidylserine is a component of our cell membrane, it helps with memory and mood[17]
  • Bacopa extract helps with memory[18] and retention by increasing[19] the amounts of serotonin, Acetylcholine, and GABA 
  • Green tea extract contains L-theanine as an amino acid which increases alertness and makes you calm and focused at the same time
  • DMAE bitartrate increases attention and focus by increasing choline[19] in the brain 

Other ingredients mentioned in the ingredient list are also working to improve our memory and focus either through neurotransmitter production or neuron communication.

In this Stonehenge Health review, I will now talk about how to take this product and its cost. 

How to Take & Dosage 

Take 2 capsules once daily, ideally 20-30 min before a meal with a full glass of water. 

The price to buy this product is as follows: 

  • 1 bottle of 60 capsules costs $50 
  • If you buy 3 bottles, you will get each bottle for $44
  • Ordering 6 bottles will bring the cost down to $38 each

Alright, I know your brains have been working hard reading this Stonehenge Health review. I have one more exciting product to discuss, so keep reading!

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Turmeric Review

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Turmeric Review
Stonehenge Health Dynamic Turmeric Review

Known as “The Golden Spice of India”, Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties meant to relieve pain, especially in the joints. Next up in this Stonehenge Health review, you will find their answer to inflammation.

Ingredients Label

Each capsule contains organic turmeric curcumin, organic ginger extract, and BioPerine, which is a patented extract from black pepper fruits.

Nutritional Value

There are negligible calories from fat, carbohydrates, and protein in the capsule. In three capsules, there is 1650mg of organic turmeric curcumin, 300mg of ginger extract, and 15mg of BioPerine.

Benefits

Not only is Turmeric one of the most researched herbs on earth, it’s been used extensively throughout history. Its active component, curcumin, is known for its anti-inflammatory nature. Similarly, ginger is also used as an anti-nauseant and has anti-inflammatory properties.

In addition: 

  • It helps relieve pain, especially joint pain for people suffering from Osteoarthritis
  • It has antioxidant[20] and anti-cancerous properties
  • Some studies show that curcumin can lower cholesterol[21] and help with insulin sensitivity[21]

How Does It Work

Turmeric has been used for over 4,000 years in several regions such as Asia as a prominent spice used in different dishes. It is only in recent years that its health benefits are coming forward, especially since the pandemic. Turmeric, due to its active compound curcumin, is known to lower inflammation[21] in the body and is comparable to ibuprofen in relieving pain.

However, one of the problems with curcumin has been its poor bioavailability which basically means how much of curcumin actually gets absorbed in our bloodstream to exert those miraculous effects.

Through studies, we have now shown that piperine can increase bioavailability by 2000%[21]. This is why Stonehenge Health has formulated its turmeric with black pepper extract in it. 

The addition of ginger is just an added benefit since it has also been used for many years for stomach ailments[22] like upset stomach, nausea, and more. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, which along with turmeric’s properties, is just the cherry on top to relieve pain. 

Wondering how to take it and how much it costs? That’s coming next.

How to Take & Dosage 

Take three capsules, once a day, with a meal. The bottle says to take it 20-30 minutes before a meal for best results.

This supplement also comes in several buying options:

  • 1 bottle of 90 capsules costs $50 each
  • 3 bottles will bring the cost down to $44 each
  • Ordering 6 bottles will give you the most savings at $38 each

Next up, I will talk about who can really take all these supplements. I hope this Stonehenge Health review is helping you make your decision to buy these products easier.

Who Is Stonehenge Health For?

Stonehenge Health Review

Stonehenge Health’s supplements are for adults over 18 looking to improve their health naturally. They are not meant for children under 18, pregnant or lactating women, or people with serious medical conditions. Please talk to your doctor before using any product. 

We all know there is no product devoid of possible side effects. Although rare, my Stonehenge Health review is going to describe some of the product’s possible side effects. 

Stonehenge Health Side Effects

Stonehenge Health Review

Let’s look at the three products separately. 

Stonehenge Health Dynamics Biotics: it is important to note that with probiotics, you can experience some gas and bloating initially as the gut bacteria is trying to shift its balance. Also, Inulin, and other fibers, at high doses can cause some abdominal discomfort, gas and diarrhea[23]

Stonehenge Health Dynamics Brain: if you suffer from High Blood pressure, then be cautious while taking licorice root which can have possible side effects[24] of high blood pressure, low potassium (hypokalemia), and fluid retention.

Huperzine A, one of the ingredients in the proprietary blend can cause mild nausea, vomiting, and sweating[25] . Please stop the product when such side effects are noted.

Also, there are some preliminary animal studies done where DMAE has led to birth defects[26] in mice. Although this is not proven in humans yet, do not take this product if you are trying to conceive, are pregnant or lactating. 

Stonehenge Health Dynamics Turmeric: turmeric is one of the safest known supplements and side effects are very rare at right doses. However, we need to be aware of some side effects at very high doses.

I’d advise you to not  take Turmeric if you have gallbladder issues[27] or  bleeding issues[27] since it can slow down clotting. In addition, high doses of turmeric can lead to uterine contractions[27] in pregnant women. Also, studies have shown that high doses can prevent absorption of iron[27]. It is best to consult a physician if you are deficient in iron.

Stonehenge Health Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Stonehenge Health Review

The first place to look for reviews is their official website. For the Stonehenge Health Dynamics Biotics, a 5 star review said that  “These probiotics were recommended to me by my physician. After using them for a few months, I understand why.

They went on to explain, “Everything about my stomach is much more stable. This is after intestinal surgeries that left me in pretty bad shape. Tried other probiotics etc. to no avail. These might be a little more expensive but they actually work. I HIGHLY recommend this product.”

For Stonehenge Health Dynamics Brain, a happy customer said that “I’m a single mom, a full-time accountant, and I’m going to school at night to finish my MBA. Needless to say, my life is exhausting. And the intense pace was causing me to lose focus, plus I was having a tough time remembering my course work.

But the supplement was able to help her pretty quickly: After using Dynamics Brain for about 7 weeks, I’m now able to keep up with my demanding schedule. My memory recall is vastly improved. And brain fog that used to hit me in the afternoon isn’t happening anymore. I am so much happier! Best money I have ever spent.”

For the Stonehenge Health Dynamics Turmeric, one customer said, “My arthritis has been acting up as I was helping my wife in the garden. It had gotten very bad. I couldn’t even lift the bags of soil she needed my help moving. One dose and I was amazing at how quickly my hands felt great again. Day 3 and it was like my hands were as good as new again. Amazing.”

On Amazon.com, Dynamics Brain has a rating of 3.9/5 stars over 3,272 reviews. Most happy customers say that it has made them more focused on their work and cleared their post-COVID brain fog. Isn’t that something? 

Stonehenge Health is BBB-accredited with an A + rating. On the Better Business Bureau website, they have 12 customer reviews with a 2.43/5 star-rating. 

Out of the negative reviews, most customers say that it is either too expensive or doesn’t work. It is possible that since the brain supplement is a proprietary blend, the individual doses of some components are not sufficient enough to exert a noticeable effect. As discussed previously, this is one of the downsides of a proprietary blend.

Is Stonehenge Health Worth It?

Stonehenge Health Review

As mentioned throughout this Stonehenge Health review, there is substantial clinical evidence on the benefits of these products. The 5-star ratings of these products also give us more confidence in making a buying decision. Although this sounds promising, there’s always a worry, “what if it doesn’t work.”

Since every individual is different, there is a possibility that the dosage of each ingredient may be small enough to show substantial results.

So the big question is should you try Stonehenge Health’s products? Since the ingredients are backed by science and supported by fantastic reviews, they are definitely worth a try. As mentioned previously, please consult your doctor before you embark on this Stonehenge Health journey.
