HOW TOTAL GUT HEALTH OPTIMIZES YOU:
Whenever you feel gassy, bloated, or tired after a meal, it becomes crystal clear that good digestion is essential to overall well being. But optimizing the gut isn’t only about digestion.
Recent research suggests that the gut biome could serve as the foundation for a strong immune system and optimal brain function. Total Gut Health contains probiotics, prebiotics, enzymes, and HCl. If there is a single thing you can do to optimize performance and health, this is it!†
ALL PROBIOTICS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL
Gut microorganisms play in an instrumental role in protecting the intestinal barrier, fine tuning the immune system and metabolising nutrients. However some species of bacteria exist more symbiotically than others. Additional probiotics helps incorporate the strains of bacteria with known benefits to gut function.
Simply taking any random probiotic off the shelf or eating lots of yogurt may not be enough to benefit the gut microbiota. An optimal gut microbiota contains colonies that are robust and widely diverse. While beneficial, yogurt, kombucha, and even kimchi are typically limited to only one or two fairly common strains and generally offer fewer colony forming units than probiotic supplements. Furthermore, the issue with many probiotics is their inability to survive the harsh acidic environment of the stomach. The five strains of probiotics in Total Gut Health were selected for both their acid resistant qualities as well as their positive influence on the gut.
In addition to five bacterial strains, total gut also includes the probiotic yeast Saccharomyces Boulardii (SB). The effects of SB are well studied and have been shown to help support the protective effects of normal healthy gut flora [source]. One study introduced conditions similar to what many might experience traveling abroad, and those who took the SB probiotic experienced significant optimization versus the control group [source]. Enhancing the symbiotic relationship between the host and microorganisms improves the first line response of a healthy gut.
Total Gut Pack includes prebiotics to fuel the probiotic colonies. Carbohydrates in Dandelion Root and Jerusalem Artichoke pass through the GI system relatively undigested until encountering the gut’s flora in the colon where they can be directly used for energy [source]. The latest research on gut health shows that each individual's microbiota is a dynamic process that can be altered with the introduction of beneficial probiotic species. The combination of multiple high quality probiotic strains with prebiotics increases the chances that new beneficial bacteria can thrive where the body needs it the most.
Optimize Your Immune System… Right Now.†
You’ve got an entire factory of workers in your body. Trillions of microbial workers. They never take breaks. They work weekends, swing shifts, night shifts, overtime. The gut microbiota is required for the development of the immune cells that surround the intestine (or the more official term – GALT – gut-associated lymph tissue). Recent research suggests an important role for the interaction between gut flora and GALT in contributing to the responsiveness of the immune system. By taking the Total Gut Pack, you are improving the supply chain to your loyal army of miniscule workers.†

5 STRAINS OF PROBIOTICS
Good bacteria are only beneficial if they reach your intestines, and stomach acids usually kill them off before they get that far. That’s why we included five of the most important naturally acid-resistant strains: L. acidophilus DDS-1, L. plantarum, L. rhamnosus, B. infantis, and B. lactis.
2 TYPES OF ORGANIC PREBIOTICS
Organic Jerusalem artichoke and organic dandelion root help feed the probiotic strains, aiding a positive balance in gut flora.†︎

A gut-friendly yeast that acts as a probiotic, S. Boulardii survives stomach acid to help restock your gut with beneficial microorganisms that aid with normal elimination. †︎
