Yes, Happy Gut can be part of a low FODMAP diet. We will highlight two things for you and your health practitioner(s) to be aware of:

Happy Gut includes a prebiotic fibre made from apples. This means the residual fructose is extremely low, making it OK for FODMAP diets.

The inclusion of chamomile in Happy Gut is not low FODMAP however, it is a very small amount and can be tolerated in many cases.

If you have any concerns, please consult your health practitioner for advice.

Happy Gut includes FibaFit™, a prebiotic apple fibre made from Hawkes Bay apples as a by-product of apple juice production, creating a solid by-product that is essentially pure fibre from the pulp. There will be some residual fructose, and other related sugars, locked into the fibre the after the extraction, however, these residual sugars are hard to get at and remain locked into both soluble and insoluble fibre. After consuming FibaFit™, some of this bound fructose might become unbound during digestion while the remainder will pass through the gut undigested. FibaFit™ presents a very small exposure to those with a fructose intolerance condition.

We do not recommend taking Happy Gut whilst taking blood thinning medication.

Happy Gut contains slippery elm which coats the digestive tract so it is best to take Happy Gut two hours away from any medications or vitamins.

Absolutely! Happy Gut supports healthy digestive function and overall gut health. A healthy gut supports optimal nutrient absorption.

Happy Gut is complementary to, not a replacement for probiotics. We need probiotics to promote good gut bacteria and prebiotics to feed them. We recommend supporting Happy Gut by including probiotic rich fermented foods to your diet like sauerkraut and kimchi. You can even add Happy Gut along with probiotic rich ingredients such as coconut yoghurt, kombucha or apple cider vinegar to your smoothie for a natural dose of probiotics.

NZ apple fibre is 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 can decrease the number of harmful bacteria in the intestine.

Learn more about this ingredient in our Ingredient Glossary.

Prebiotics are compounds that growth and activity of beneficial bacteria. We like to think of our gut flora as a garden that needs fertiliser in order to flourish and bloom. Prebiotics act as the fertiliser for our gut microbes, supporting a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria and bad bacteria. Essentially, prebiotics are food for the bacteria in your gut.

When it comes to gut health, it’s not just our digestion that can be affected. Studies show that 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.

Things like stress, a poor diet, alcohol, antibiotics and other medications can upset the balance of our gut bacteria and cause damage to 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.

Everyone can benefit from taking Happy Gut! Things like stress, a poor diet, sugar, processed food, alcohol, artificial sweeteners, antibiotics and some medications can disrupt our gut microbiota and damage our intestinal lining. Many of these factors are simply unavoidable in today’s modern lifestyle so the heaping helpings of goodness in Happy Gut can help nourish the gut, support gut lining integrity and promote the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria to support overall gut health.

Majority of Happy Gut’s ingredients like the NZ apple fibre, chia seeds, and herbs are not completely soluble in nature. The slippery elm in Happy Gut also takes a slightly gelatinous form hence it remains suspended in your drink.

Benefits

Soothing herbal aids ginger and chamomile work to settle and relax an uneasy stomach, supporting digestive comfort by eliminating bloating and improving gut health. Working alongside is prebiotic apple fibre which acts to promote a healthy and balanced gut microbiome, reducing excess gas production and ultimately alleviating abdominal pain and distention for overall gut support.

New Zealand apple fibre alongside chia fibre helps provide bulk to stools while simultaneously softening stools to reduce transit time and assists with regular and easy-to-pass bowel motions, as well as supporting digestive comfort and reducing feelings of blockage to promote healthy bowel function and pain-free bowel motions.

Prebiotic and fermentable apple and chia fibre promotes the proliferation of healthy gut bacteria in support of a balanced gut microbiome, assisting with the production of gut beneficial metabolites known as short chain fatty acids. Glutamine provides fuel for healthy gut microbes and promotes a balanced gut microbiome to achieve optimal gut health and function.

Promotes a healthy and functional gut barrier by maintaining gut lining integrity and intestinal cell turnover, assisted by anti-inflammatory effects of herbs marshmallow and chamomile as well as spices ginger and cinnamon. Soothing slippery elm coats and protects the delicate gut mucosal membrane, while prebiotic apple fibre promotes a balanced microbiome for overall improved gut health.

Soothing slippery elm works in tandem with glutamine, having been clinically researched together to provide gastrointestinal comfort and alleviate gastrointestinal symptoms, alongside mucilage-rich marshmallow which protects from irritation. Chamomile and ginger are calming and promote digestive relaxation, working synergistically to reduce abdominal pain and provide digestive support for optimum comfort.
