Why a healthy gut is important And what to know about it

Our gut is central to supporting our health. A happy and flourishing gastrointestinal (GI) tract contributes to a strong immune system and optimal digestion, which is why it’s important to take care of it.
Approximately 70% of our immune system is found within the gastrointestinal tract. It’s home to approximately 100 trillion microorganisms too – that’s about 10 times more bacteria than we have cells across our whole body. Friendly bacteria are strains that do not cause any harm and live within the GI tract. A balanced gut microbiome is a good indicator of a healthy gut and a healthy diet. Efficient digestion of food and absorption of nutrients is essential for overall health.
Multiple use of antibiotics and medications, stress, sugar, alcohol, environmental toxins and too little fibre and plant food diversity in the diet, can all undermine the balance of friendly bacteria in the gut and may lead to poor digestion and nutrient absorption.
Our SUPERGUT supplement has high strength, live bacteria that survive throughout the GI tract.
Each ENTERIC COATED CAPSULE uses delayed release encapsulation technology that protects live cultures from gastric juices in the stomach and ensures their delivery to the small and large intestines.
The SUPERGUT formulation contains Lactobacillus Acidophilus DDS1 - a trademarked strain backed by over 35 years of clinical research.
