The signs of an imbalance in the gut – such as gas, gas, and the occasional indigestion – can affect the quality of our daily lives. But if we can keep the microbiome in balance, our gut health can serve as a gateway to general wellbeing. We developed Gut Microbiome Superpowder to help us do this. It is designed for anyone who wants to support bowel health, reduce occasional gas, and promote healthy and normal bowel function. *

THE MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENTS
Lactobacillus plantarum 299v (LP299V®) is a probiotic strain of human origin that has been shown in clinical studies to promote digestive tract health and function, including occasional indigestion, gas and regularity. It is also stable at room temperature – no cooling is required here. Gut Microbiome Superpowder is formulated with a clinically studied dose of 10 billion CFU of Lactobacillus plantarum 299v. *
Prebiotics are compounds that feed the healthy bacteria in your gut and support the gut microbiome. For the prebiotic in Gut Microbiome Superpowder, we selected Sunfiber®, a soluble fiber made from partially hydrolyzed guar gum. *
Gut Microbiome Superpowder contains a blend of digestive enzymes – proteases, lipase, amylase and cellulase – to aid digestion and absorption of nutrients from food. They can also help promote digestive comfort. The ones used here come from vegan sources. *
L-glutamine and Aloe juice concentrate
To round off our recipe, we have added aloe juice concentrate, which is traditionally used for its calming effect, and the amino acid L-glutamine. *
WHAT TO EXPECT
The super powder doesn’t taste like much – we didn’t flavor it so you can mix it into almost any drink. But for best results, choose drinks that are cool or room temperature; Mixing the super powder in hot liquids can kill the probiotics and make them ineffective. If you are looking for a special way to enjoy Gut Microbiome Superpowder, we will show you the blueberry, chia and coconut kefir smoothie that our Food Director Caitlin O’Malley created for us. (It’s delicious.) The super powder is gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, sugar-free, GMO-free and made without preservatives or artificial colors or flavors. You can take it at any time of the day, with or without food. As with any supplement, consistency is key: this is something you want to take on a daily basis.
