Two Islands Happy Gut is formulated with nourishing and soothing ingredients to support overall gut health and digestion. Designed to support gut lining integrity, Two Islands Happy Gut helps reduce bloating, supports digestive comfort and helps feed beneficial gut bacteria for optimal gut health and total body wellbeing.
Things like stress, a poor diet, alcohol, antibiotics and other medications can upset the balance of our gut bacteria and compromise our intestinal lining. When this happens, our digestion can be significantly affected. This can change the way we react to certain foods, impact on the amount of nutrients we absorb, as well as cause overall abdominal discomfort and upset our bowel patterns too.
When it comes to gut health, it’s not just our digestion that can be affected. A healthy gut is vital for overall health and wellbeing. From a strong immune system, to clear, healthy skin, a happy mood, a healthy brain, heart and good sleep, a happy gut means a happy body and mind.
Two Islands Happy Gut may support:
- Overall gut health
- Skin health
- Balanced mood
- Low energy
- Bowel regularity

L-Glutamine is an amino acid that is an important energy source for intestinal and immune cells. It supports the gut’s mucous membrane and the maintenance of the barrier between the inside of your intestines and the rest of your body
Slippery Elm is a herb derived from the slippery elm tree. When combined with water, it forms a “slippery” like substance, which helps to coat and soothe mucous membranes and calm any irritation. Traditionally it has been used to help support digestion, bowel regularity, digestive comfort as well as soothe dry throats.
FibaFit™ is a type of fibre derived from Hawke’s Bay apples. It is a rich source of both soluble and insoluble fibre which can help to bulk stools and allow for regular and comfortable bowel motions. It is also a source of antioxidants and vitamin D, which is also involved in supporting a healthy gut lining. As a good source of prebiotic fibre, it helps to feed the good bacteria in our gut, helping with a healthy intestinal microbial balance. Studies have shown that apple fibre can increase a type of fatty acid in the body called butyrate, which supports the balance of good bacteria in the intestine.
Chia seeds are rich in fibre, omega-3 fatty acids, and are a complete protein meaning they contain all nine essential amino acids needed by the body. As a source of soluble and prebiotic fibre, chia seeds can help to support overall digestion, a good balance of bacteria in your gut, and healthy bowel movements.
Marshmallow is a herb rich in mucilage that helps to coat and soothe mucus membranes. Research suggests that the mucilage content creates a protective layer on the lining of the digestive tract, helping soothe and support gut lining integrity. Marshmallow may also support healthy tissue regeneration and has been shown to help support healthy gut flora.
Chamomile is a carminative herb that helps to support the digestive system and reduce bloating and gas. It’s calming properties also support a healthy stress response as well as the gut-brain axis.
Ginger is a herb that is well-known to help soothe and settle an upset stomach. It is a potent antioxidant and has shown to help support overall digestion, as well as help reduce bloating and support digestive comfort.
Cinnamon is a spice that contains high levels of antioxidants. As well as helping to support healthy blood sugar levels, cinnamon is also well known to support digestive comfort, bloating and stomach upset.

To ensure our product's freshness, our recycled paper cardboard tubs contain a food-grade aluminium foil lining. Due to the mixed material of fibre and foil, these plastic-free tubs are not recyclable and may need to be placed in your landfill bin along with the tin lid. Read about the pros and cons of packaging here.
Thanks to our recycling programme partnership with TerraCycle, our New Zealand customers are now able to recycle the entirety of our packaging. This partnership ensures Two Islands packaging can be repurposed into products such as outdoor furniture and children's playgrounds, closing the loop and keeping our products in circularity.
"Our gut plays a much bigger role in our health than many people realise."
It’s not just about digestion - our gut truly affects every aspect or our wellbeing from our mood, skin, sleep, hormonal health and our immune system. The majority of clients I see have issues with their gut, whether that’s complaints of bowel irregularity, food intolerances or constant bloating. These issues often go hand in hand with other complaints like skin issues, a poor immune system or low mood. There’s no doubt about it - when your gut is happy and working well, you’ll notice a much happier total you.
I've purchased about 5 tubs and I don't think I can live without it now. I have tried so many gut products with no results, but this one really works. At the start I forgot to take it for a couple of days and was quickly reminded how bad my gut health was. It soothes my intigeston, cramping/bloating, keeps me regular. I gave a sensitive tummy so sometimes if I've eaten something that doesn't agree with me I take an extra dose and it really soothes it fast. It's not delicious, but it's not as awful as people make it out to be, there are far more disgusting gut elixers out there. I drink it cold before bed, no problems.
Love my Happy Gut every night after dinner. I mix it with a full glass of warm water and enjoy the subtle flavour of herbs, ginger and cinnamon. It calms and settles my stomach when it's slightly irritable after a busy day. (Staff Review)
My Guts are quite challenging with food intolerances so finding Happy Gut was my miracle. I use Happy Gut when my gut is unhappy due to food allergies or sickness and I can hand on heart say that Happy Gut works. I’ve been recommending the product to heaps friends as it is that good.
