Why our Gut Health Bundle is so good
The Gut Health bundle, combines two of our best-selling formulas - Debloat & Detox and Gut Works® - to recolonise your gut with good bacteria, rebalance your gut microbiome and eliminating abdominal bloating, relieving IBS, detoxifying your liver naturally, and fuelling your daily energy, concentration and focus.
How to take them?
Take two capsules each day.
Take your two capsules together or separately, before or after your main meals of the day. There are no hard and fast rules, so adapt to whatever works best for you.
Take one capsule each day on an empty stomach and at least 15 minutes before or after any hot drinks.
This helps your gut absorb the friendly bacteria and ensures they're not damaged by the heat of your food or drink.
How they work?
The science behind Debloat & Detox
Milk Thistle: Milk Thistle is an antioxidant that helps to maintain a healthy liver and its natural detoxification process. It also helps stimulate the production of digestive body fluids and gastro-intestinal movement.
Silymarin: Silymarin, which is the active ingredient in Milk Thistle, is included in a powerful extract form to support your liver's detoxification and helping maintain healthy digestion.
Fennel Seed: Fennel seed helps eliminate digestive discomfort, bloating, excess gas, and maintaining a healthy digestive tract. It also supports and protects your liver.
Dandelion Root: Dandelion helps maintain a healthy urinary tract for natural secretion and drainage of the liver and gall bladder. It also contains prebiotic properties for gastro-intestinal wellbeing.
Artichoke: A natural and powerful anti-oxidant, Artichoke can help protect you from free-radicals, helping maintain normal blood lipid and cholesterol levels. Artichoke also supports your intestinal and digestive tract.
Schisandra: Schisandra has adaptogenic properties, helping protect cells against oxidative stress and supporting a healthy liver. Learn more in 'Why is everyone talking about schisandra?'.
L-Glutamine: An amino-acid, L-Glutamine is produced in your muscles and acts as an adaptogen, and studies show it also supports gut health. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein.
The science behind Gut Works
Gut Works is our acclaimed prebiotic and probiotic with 50bn gut friendly bacteria in 6 clinically studied strains.
Inulin: Inulin is a prebiotic, a gut-friendly fibre that feeds bacteria found in large numbers in the gut, helping 'crowd out' unwanted organisms, bacteria, yeast and parasites. It is found in a wide range fruits and vegetables including onions, wheat, bananas, leeks, artichokes and asparagus. Think of prebiotics as the fertiliser that feed probiotics. Without prebiotics, probiotics aren't nearly as effective.
Acidophilus: Acidophilus naturally occurs 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 exists naturally in your body, primarily in the intestines, helping prevent growth of harmful bacteria in your stomach.
Bifidobacterium & Casei: Bifidobacterium - or 'the Bif' as we like to call it - 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.
For example, eating smaller and more frequent meals, avoiding tight clothing, reducing stress and not chewing gum.

Gut brain axis
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 fuelling your ability to concentrate, think and focus, to helping maintain a balanced mood and ability to manage stress.
