GutRight® is formulated to help promote a healthy microbiome in the gut
We have two different lots of genetic material (genome) working in our bodies, one in our cells inherited from our parents and the other in the cells of the acquired microbes we carry around inside us; our microbiome. Our inherited genome from our parents takes many generations to change and hardly changes if at all during our lifetime, the microbiome genome is extremely dynamic and can be constantly changing, even from night and day.[i]
Approximately 1,000 types of microbiota are present in the adult intestinal tract. [ii] There are 10 times as many microbiome bugs inside us than our own cells.[iii] These naturally occurring gut bugs help us digest, create and process nutrients. They interact with our immune system and coats our first lines of defense such as our skin and internal mucosal membranes.
What makes our gut healthy?
Having the right number of bugs and the right combination of species of bugs for your body is what we are striving for. Not too many and not too few. A nice healthy balance.
The majority of these bugs live in and on us because they are in our environment and food. Our unique colonies come from our exposure to different strains, hygiene, antibiotics, and our food choices. It is the food we eat that has the biggest impact on what strains thrive and what dies off. With our constant and consistent availability of foods and a tendency to eat a balanced diet but not a varied diet with the seasons can create overgrowths of certain bugs and overall population and we can lose our natural, healthy balance.
It is not always a deficiency of microbes that needs to be supplemented with probiotics and prebiotic bug food but a problem occurs when we get an overgrowth of the wrong types of bugs or even an overgrowth of what may be considered healthy bugs that disrupt the balance. We can have too much of a good thing.[iv]
Our eating has changed & our food has changed
Our food has changed due to farming techniques, harvesting, storage and food preparation techniques along with our food choices and purchases.
Per gram of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and grains, we now consume:
Less Modbiotic ™ compounds; antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal compounds from fiber, pulp, skins, peels, and seeds
We eat the same food all year round and we don’t eat with seasons. In nature, we would cycle between different fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and grains through the seasons. Eating what is fresh and available for the season and then having months off while we wait for that season return. We have been taught to have a balanced diet by balancing our food groups in each meal or day but we tend to select the same foods, our favorite foods to consume most days, all year round.
We typically do not have regular intermittent fasting. In nature we go through phases of feast and famine, our metabolism learns to adapt to changing ratios of protein, carbohydrates, and fats and eating at different times of the day.
Without this variation and change, there is a constant food supply for certain microorganisms and deficiencies of favorite foods for other microbes and that will fuel an overgrowth of some and deficiencies of others. We need variety.[vi][vii]
Fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds contain modbiotic compounds such as polyphenols, flavonoids, polysaccharides, glucans and lots of other astringent, bitter, colorful and fragrant compounds. Usually, the modbiotics are in the fiber that is found in the skins, peels, seeds, and pulp.
Unfortunately, over the years the levels of modbiotics have declined and the fortified fiber or fiber supplements do not put these often-bad tasting compounds back in. This has left our food high in sugary food for bugs and relatively low in the modbiotic compounds that help to keep the populations of bugs under control and prevent their overgrowth.
So, what do we do?
So, how do we use a Modbiotic™? GutRight?
GutRight is a Modbiotic™ formulation. It is a concentrated form of naturally healthy Modbiotic compounds that once was once found in abundance in our traditional diet, which was loaded with skins, peels seeds and fiber.*
Modbiotics™ are chemicals found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and spices that we simply aren’t eating enough of in our modern lifestyle, due to the overabundance of refined foods and deficiency of fresh local foods in our Western diets.
GutRight is simply restoring the balance we once enjoyed when we ate a more natural diet. Just as we supplement our diet to replace the deficient micronutrients with a multivitamin formulation, or we add extra fiber into our diets; we can supplement our diet with the deficient modbiotic compounds with GutRight.*
So how do I take Gutright?
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHT ™ mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAY ™ collagen protein powder or Vegan essential aminos or honey daily.
Short term kickstart /10-day challenge:
Do this to start your GUTRIGHTTM journey or again after events that may disrupt your healthy balance of gut flora for example after medications, food poisoning, colds, cases of flu or allergies, bad eating and binging. This is totally optional, you may want to skip this step and go straight into the maintenance plan.
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHTTM mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAYTM protein powder or honey 3 times daily with meals for 10 days whilst following the Modbiotic Diet.
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHTTM mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAYTM protein powder or honey daily. (At night is best as normal transit time will be about 10 hours which will mean you are regular each morning but everyone can work out their own way)
What to expect:
This will be directly proportional to what is living inside you and what it smells and sounds like as it leaves you.
The Herxheimer reaction is a normal die-off reaction as the Modbiotics work to promote a healthy balance in the gut. When the bad bugs die there can be a release of toxins and some people may experience burping, farting, gurgling, nausea, others may not feel much different at all.
This product is not a laxative style purgative. It will not induce explosive diarrhea or leakage. The purging effect comes from the removal of excessive organisms and how they try to fight back.*

GutRight is neither a pre or a probiotic, nor does it take the form of an antibiotic either. It fills that middle gap that we haven’t had access to before now, it doesn’t feed anything but also doesn’t kill everything, it balances the ratio between the good guys and the bad guys, bringing down the overpopulation of bad so that the good can flourish and correct gut health.
Is it a powder or a capsule?
GutRight is a powder form supplement that can be mixed with foods, juices etc. one of the interesting reasons we went with a power is that the polyphenols contain bitter properties that work in conjunction with the Vagus Nerve and digestive process and these first start with the bitter taste buds on the tongue
How long will this last me?
1 tub (150g) contains 30 serves, if you are doing the 10 day protocol where it is 3 serves a day, you will go through a tub in the initial 10 days. After this 10 days, 1 tub will last 30 days.
Can Children use this?
Whilst we cannot suggest the use of any of our products to persons under the age of 15 years, many parents do include this in their children’s diet to help make sure they are getting an additional source of nutrients in their diet, just work with a good practitioner to acquire the right dose and protocol.
Can I use this while pregnant or breastfeeding?
For ethical reasons, we do not test our products on pregnant or breastfeeding women so we cannot suggest the use of this product during pregnancy or breastfeeding and correcting gut flora will be best to implement post breastfeeding.
Can I cook with this?
Absolutely! We make a lot of a delicious recipes with the GutRight and it blends easily amongst foods, smoothies and heat does not alter the structure of the polyphenols in the GutRight. As an example, you can use 1 serve to replace this equivalent portion of flour in your baking, banana bread is an amazing way of hiding it in there for fussy eaters!
What is a polyphenol?
Polyphenols are natural Phytochemicals found in our foods that act as both an anti-oxidant to us and also act as a natural pesticide on the outside of the fruit itself, they are often found in the peels and skins of fruits to keep bugs from attacking the plant. They are often quite bitter and astringent which is part of the way they protect themselves from bugs and animals ingesting the plant as a protection mechanism. There are a few types of Polyphenols: Flavanoids, Stillbenes, Ligans and Phenolic Acid.
What is a Modbiotic?
A Modbiotic is a complex of polyphenols, polysaccharides, glucans, lectins and other compounds that modulate microbes toward an anti-inflammatory and anti-obesity profile through combinations of antibacterial, antifungal and anti-parasitic actions that reduce excessive firmicutes and increase deficient bacteroidetes.
Do I need to follow a diet while taking it?
Following the Modbiotic plan while taking the GutRight for the initial 10 days includes the “Modbiotic” which can be located on our website, this will assist with the modification process of the gut flora and allow a faster transition to a balanced ratio of Bugs and relief from digestion issues.
How long do I take this for?
There is no doubt that our food has changed and as such so have the nutrients available to us, much like the multi-food – adding the GutRight in as 1tsp daily on top a healthy diet and lifestyle will allow a peace of mind that these micronutrients, polyphenols and fibres are being taken in and looking after the gut as we are exposed to many sources of bacteria both good and bad as well as parasites in a our day to day lifestyle. Think of it as the foundation to your home, keeping it strong is the key to it being able to withstand outside forces that are out of our control.
Can I take this in conjunction with other products from the range?
Yes, you can most definitely, all of our product range minus the infrared support the gutright during the 10 day protocol so keep them in if you like.
What protein sources can you have during the 10 days?
You want to avoid dairy-based proteins and also pea proteins whilst on the 10 days. These can be added back in afterward if need be.
Is gutright organic?
Can you use gutright if you following regimes designed for FODMAP and SIBO?
This is a tricky one as the gutright wasn’t designed to support these regimes specifically but those that have use it in conjunction with these dietary requirements based on gut health have been happy with the results.
Can this cause eczema to worsen during the 10 days?
If the eczema is linked with a gut imbalance and the bug or fungus that is causing the eczema is dying off, it will very likely make haste and rapidly try to expand its colonization in order to survive. Those that have seen the Gutright through noticed that it tended to die off after the surge completely.
What happens if I don’t get any side effects?
One thing that we all have in common is the fact that we are unique, especially our gut flora, so while one person may have a greater physical reaction than you, does not mean that the product is not working. there are so many important internal processes that it works on such as breaking down bio-films and cleaning up excess mucous. Some may have more subtle effects than others.
Do I need to use antibiotics or probiotics during or afterwards?
Thankfully this does only target the firmicutes of the gut in terms of specific commensal flora so you aren't bombing the lot. This means that it is unlikely you will need to replenish with probiotics, however if you know through tests that you are deficient in a particular strain, then you can add this in as an individual item in conjunction after the 10 days.
Why aren't I pooping? Why am I going to the bathroom less?
If, through excess inflammation the gut is producing more mucous in response; this can be seen as making you a more regular visitor. So, when lessening the inflammation and clearing up excess mucous from the GI Tract, you may become initially less regular. However around day 8-10 is when this begins to balance itself out again as your body finds its rhythm.

Hi Melinda, thanks for your review on Gutright. Fantastic to hear you are loving the product. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

I did the 10 day Gutright/SCD challange (and was 97% faithful to the diet - a couple of times I used coconut creamer with guar gum in my coffee). Two years ago I took the OAT which showed 3 microbe markers off (arabinose was off by quiet a bit, the other two were a little on the high side) but since then I stopped eating gluten almost entirely. So there's that for what it's worth. Here are the highlights of what I experienced: By day 2 I was having lots of bloating, and uncomfortable distention. On day 4 I woke in the middle of the night with abdominal pain (I happened to be ovulating that night, and I'm not sure what to attribute that to, maybe it was an additive pain with the intestinal disturbance, but it was quiet painful for 30 minutes). I noticed my afternoon slumps disappeared, and had some really good nights of sleep, with vivid dreams. My partner at some point asked me if I started doing Crossfit - (it was a joke - and yet I was slimmer and more firm). On day 7 I felt a sore throat coming on but it never amounted to anything, the next morning it was gone. Day 8 lots of gas. By day 9 my body felt really limber, not in a "I can stretch my leg so far" but limber a full body way, like a heaviness was gone, almost like I had more mobility all over my body, I felt younger. It works. My litmus tests are always sleep and energy - and both improved. I'm going to try to do the 10 day challenge 2x a year.
Hi Cristina, thanks for your review on Gutright. Great to hear you have had such great results. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Keeps my guts in check
I have to have this in stock at my house. Seems to be a constant staple for me. I go without, my guts start acting up again. The flavor is terrible, but it isn't something you are going to put in a glass and sip. Drink it fast, no problem.
