How to take it

Take one capsule each day at least 15 minutes before or after any hot drinks.

Probiotics are very sensitive to heat and warm air, so only add a few capsules to your Pill Tin if necessary (do not empty all your pouch into your pill tin).

Re-seal your Gut Works® pouch securely each day. Keep your pouch away from any warm air or moisture, including steam from a kettle or in a bathroom. If at all uncertain, you can store your Gut Works® in your fridge if it is frost-free.

How it works

Gut Works® is our advanced pre & probiotic containing 50 billion gut friendly bacteria (CFU) that are clinically proven to provide daily support for your digestion, gut and immune health, and your body's whole wellbeing.  Here we explain just how Gut Works® works.

Inulin: Inulin is a gut-friendly fibre found in food that helps gut friendly bacteria grow. It is known as a 'prebiotic' that feeds 'probiotics' which are the good bacteria that overcome unwanted organisms, bad bacteria, yeast and parasites. Inulin is found in a wide range fruits and vegetables including onions, wheat, bananas, leeks, artichokes and asparagus. Think of prebiotics as a fertiliser for probiotics in your gut.

Acidophilus: Acidophilus is a naturally occurring bacteria in the human gut and other parts of the body, helping your digestive system break down sugars, such as lactose, into lactic acid.

Rhamnosus: Rhamnosus is a good bacteria that exists naturally in your body, primarily in the intestines, helping prevent growth of harmful bacteria in your stomach.

Bifidobacterium & Casei: 'The Bif' and Casei are good bacteria that live in your intestines and help your gut break down food and absorb nutrients.

Streptococcus: These are friendly bacteria living in our digestive, urinary and genital systems.

Psyllium Husk: Psyllium Husk (Plantago ovata) contributes to intestinal tract function, helping maintain a healthy bowel and facilitating intestinal transit.

How long it takes to work

Allow 2-4 weeks for your body to adapt to Gut Works® and enjoy relief from symptoms.

Research shows 53% of customers begin to enjoy relief from symptoms within 2 weeks of taking Gut Works® daily, and 88% of customers enjoy relief from symptoms within 4 weeks. Take one capsule daily, at least 15 minutes before or after a hot drink or food. While not essential, if you're able to, take your Gut Works® each day on an empty stomach.

The time it takes for Gut Works® to relieve symptoms will depend on the nature of existing symptoms, weight, diet, hormones, exercise, lifestyle, any existing medical conditions and other factors.

How Gut Works® supports your brain

Our gut is known as our 'second brain' via the 'Gut-brain axis', linking emotional and cognitive centres of your brain with your intestinal function, and clinical research shows the health of your gut bacteria is vital to this interaction.

As well as improving your digestive system and gut health, studies show that improving the health of bacteria in your gut improves your brain and body's health, from your skin to your cognition, mood and ability to manage stress.
