Gut health 101?
Our gut is at the center of our body and our wellbeing. Until recently, the gut was ignored. We now know that the gut does a lot more than digest food and absorb nutrients. Our gut hosts trillions of Micro-organisms (bacteria) that control how we feel physically and emotionally.
The gut is composed of good and harmful bacteria. It is important to nourish and feed the good bacteria so they grow and take over the bad ones. Enter prebiotic fibers. Prebiotics are plant-based dietary fiber that nourish the healthy bacteria in your stomach.
Why is Gutzy good for our gut/digestion?
Gutzy has 5-6g of prebiotic fiber that feeds the good bacteria we naturally have in our gut/belly so they grow to help you stay healthy and balanced. We have 100 trillion of bacteria in our body, the majority are in our gut.
What are prebiotics?
Plant fiber that nourishes the good bacteria in our gut – fiber has been recognized to be important for a healthy life.
What is the prebiotic in Gutzy?
Organic Acacia fiber which comes from the sap of Acacia Tree (highest grade Senegal variety)
What is the difference between prebiotic and probiotic?
When you eat probiotic, you just add live bacteria to the trillions already living in your body. Prebiotics are the food on which good bacterias feed so they grow to keep you healthy. It is more preventive.
When shoud I consume Gutzy?
Ideal for breakfast or snack anytime of day, we recommend eating 1-2 a day.
Why should I eat 1-2 Gutzy everyday?
10g of prebiotic Acacia fiber have been shown to increase beneficial gut bacteria over 4 weeks. 1 pouch of Gutzy contains 6g of organic prebiotic fiber and we recommend eating 1-2 pouches a day.
Why is Gutzy refrigerated?
The unique way we select and blend all our ingredients including the highest – grade quality of our hand-picked premium Senegalese Acacia fiber requires Gutzy organic pouches to be refrigerated in order to preserve freshness and maximum potency. Gutzy is gently pasteurized.
