‘Tis the POST season! And with great festivities comes great gifts from The Gut Co wellbeing toolkit, just in time to help us navigate the barrage of special annual indulgences (who can say no to a good gingerbread man or 10?!)
Meet the game-changing innovation to support you through the silly season and beyond-
We give you ‘Cleanse’; A comprehensive formulation which features a symphony of actives, designed to support digestion, optimise and balance the microbiome, kick-start detoxification and increase resilience to stress – all whilst adding a healthy dose of nutrient-dense greens to your day.
It’s no wonder that medicinal mushrooms have earned the spotlight in recent years due to their plethora of endless health benefits. Cleanse features three key medicinal mushrooms: Shiitake, Maitake, & Reishi, which are renowned for their own unique qualities, whilst collectively fostering a thriving immune system, providing resilience and fortitude in times of stress and pressure, and of course, supporting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria via various compounds known as beta-glucans (also known as biological response modifiers, if you’re feeling fancy!) found in the fungi cell wall. These wonderful compounds are inherently prebiotic and stimulate the growth of positive microbes associated with a thriving microbiome.
Pomegranate & Green Tea: Specialised Prebiotics with a Dual Purpose
Did you know that some medicinal plants have the incredible ability to feed our good bugs whilst bulldozing the bad ones? How efficient is that?!
‘Cleanse’ harnesses the power of pomegranate husk and green tea polyphenols to simultaneously build up the good guys and pick out the baddies whereby fostering a healthy balance in the microbiome.
Combined with the prebiotic beta-glucans found in medicinal mushrooms, as well as prebiotic acacia gum, this combination is a force of nature when it comes to boosting gut health and supporting a microbiome dominant in health-promoting gut bacteria.
We don’t leave this up to chance, however. Our specialised blend of specialised prebiotics has been united with carefully selected strains of probiotics and digestive enzymes to help us to break down and assimilate nutrients from our food, as well as reduce the risk of dysbiosis (imbalance of the gut bacteria).
The liver and the gut connection
And of course, a healthy liver supports the gut, while a healthy gut supports the liver!
When one of these isn’t functioning properly, the other suffers. Our star liver herbs in ‘Cleanse’ including St Mary's Thistle and Globe Artichoke work to protect and regenerate liver cells and promoting balance in each phase of liver detoxification. Rosemary helps to reduce bloating, flatulence and indigestion. These herbs also promote the flow of bile which naturally keeps us regular.
Remember- a happy liver ensures better gut health, glowing skin, and vibrant energy!
Greens are Golden
‘Cleanse’ embodies the nutrient-dense and powerful detoxification properties of superfood greens including broccoli sprouts, chlorella, spirulina & cleavers.
Together this powerful, chlorophyll-rich combination helps to protect us from oxidative stress and free radical damage, detoxify the lymph, improve digestion, support liver health, and mop up waste in the system for elimination.
Our wonderful blend of greens selected for ‘Cleanse’ is a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals which support overall wellbeing, as well as potent antioxidants designed to imbibe with vitality and radiance.
Whether navigating the festive season break, or a busy work week, The Gut Co ‘Cleanse’ has all bases covered for a healthy microbiome and happy liver, balanced immunity, glowing skin and unflappable stress response. You’re Welcome!
