We don’t believe in shortcuts when it comes to ingredients. Ancient Herbals – Leaky Gut features ingredients that are specially selected for their benefits. This carefully designed formula helps support your gut health and more by adding supportive ingredients.
Powered by Fermentation
Ancient Nutrition fermented herbs are powered by fermentation—our own proprietary, patent-pending, dual-stage, live fermentation process. Fermentation is an ancient process typically used to break down food into more absorbable components. We ferment select ingredients on a farm owned by our co-founders so that we can ensure maximum quality.
Many probiotic strains have to be refrigerated in order to survive and often die off to some degree on the way to your door. Ancient Herbals – Leaky Gut is made with a probiotic strain that’s naturally shelf-stable, Bacillus coagulans, to make it even easier to store and use.
How to Use
We recommend taking Ancient Herbals – Leaky Gut on an empty stomach, either first thing in the morning or right before bed, at the same time each day, with a large glass of water.
Make the most of Ancient Herbals – Leaky Gut by eating a gut-supporting diet featuring prebiotics and fermented foods such as kimchi, kombucha or sauerkraut.

What is TCM?
The Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) is a system of wellness that dates back more than 2,000 years and is still practiced today. It works on the belief that Qi (which loosely translates to “vital energy” and is pronounced “chee”) is essential for overall health. TCM principles adhere to the idea that proper Qi is needed to keep all systems in balance.
This ties into the concept of yin and yang, defined as opposing but complementary energies. According to TCM, like Qi, yin and yang can negatively impact your health when they’re out of balance. That being said, a primary goal of TCM involves balancing their equalizing relationship.
One of the ways to do that involves using specific superfoods and herbs. TCM superfoods and super-herbs aim to support the overall health of the systems of the body. TCM aims to create balance in the body as a whole to promote wellness and Qi. When the yin and yang aspects of Qi are harmonized and balanced out, a person typically experiences overall wellbeing.
How is TCM different than Ayurveda?
Both TCM and Ayurveda approach the body in a balancing way. They both address energy flow, circulation and balance in the body. For instance, that energy is referred to as “Qi” in TCM and “prana” in Ayurveda.
While there is overlap in some of the botanicals used in both TCM and Ayurveda, each tradition also utilizes specific plants and foods. Ayurveda was born out of India, so often recommends traditional herbs and foods widely available in that region. TCM often focuses on botanicals and fungi more readily available in China. While TCM may utilize more animal products, Ayurveda does tend to recommend more dairy, like ghee, compared to TCM.
In essence, TCM and Ayurveda are different ways to approach wellness and balance from different regions of the world.
