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
- Healthy immunity
- Sugar cravings
- Poor digestion
- Food sensitivities

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.
Noticed the difference on day 2. This product is amazing! Missed 1 day after being on this for a week and I went back to bloating and burping. Def recommend 👌
Very good. It does make a difference, I certainly feel that when I run out
Not one to normally submit a review... but have struggled with ongoing psoriasis all over my stomach amongst other places for the past 5+ years. Have tried a number a things (including dry July haha!) to see if it would help, but to no success. Since taking Happy Gut, my skin has cleared 95% and I cannot pin point any other change in my life (other than ditching an ex-girlfriend??) that has attributed to the success. Hoping this can help others if they have a similar issues. Cheers, Anonymous
the taste definitely isnt as bad as I was expecting, and true to its word it helped!!
I am really liking it, got used to the flavour quickly. Subtle difference in my two weeks using it. Went away for the weekend and didn’t have it but really noticed the changes in my digestion since not having it for 3 days. Will purchase again! When is the best time to have this?? Before or after meals?
Hi Sheyanne! We love hearing how Happy Gut has helped you. As for best time to take it: Happy Gut can be taken anytime of day. Some swear by having Happy Gut as their morning drink. Others take it as a relaxing nightcap. Try Happy Gut for a couple of days in the morning as part of your get-ready routine, then try it for a few evenings as part of your wind down routine and see if one of these rituals works well for you.
