We don’t believe in shortcuts when it comes to ingredients. Gut Formula features ingredients that are specially selected for their benefits. This carefully designed formula helps support your gut health and more by adding supportive ingredients like spirulina, chlorella, L- glutamine, a combination of soil-based probiotics and more.
Many probiotic strains have to be refrigerated in order to survive and often die off to some degree on the way to your door. That's why Gut Formula is made from probiotic strains that occur naturally in the soil, called soil-based organisms (SBOs). These strains are tough, survivable and built to reach their destination.
The probiotic strains in this formula support your gut in a myriad of ways, including supporting normal microflora in the gut, normal digestion and a healthy immune system.† People often assume that probiotics with the highest potency or CFU (colony-forming units) count are most effective, but that isn’t the entire truth. We believe diversity in the strains is what really matters most. So focus less on the “potency” and more on strain diversity instead.
How to Use
We recommend taking Gut Formula 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 Gut Formula by eating a gut-supporting diet featuring prebiotics and fermented foods such as kimchi, kombucha or sauerkraut.

Do I need to refrigerate Gut Formula?
No, you do not need to refrigerate Gut Formula because the strains are shelf-stable. Our shelf-stable probiotics arrive active and can survive at room-temperature without refrigeration.
Why do I need to support my gut?
Fact: Most Americans don’t consume enough probiotics in their diet due to modern processed foods, soil depletion and more. I believe most people are in need of probiotic support.
Here’s why: Thanks to prescription antibiotics, high carbohydrate diets, fluoridated tap water and high levels of stress, the good bacteria in our guts are often diminished, and our bodies can't replace them at the rate required for optimal health.
In fact, I believe we need to avoid and reduce our consumption of these top 7 probiotic diminishers:
- Prescription antibiotics
- Excessive sugar intake
- Drinking tap water (chlorine and fluoride)
- GMO foods
- Eating too many whole grains (plus gluten)
- Emotional stress
- Exposure to toxins and pesticides
Meanwhile, “bad” bacteria can flourish while the “good” bacteria is compromised, leaving your system out of balance. I believe the best way to approach this is to eliminate foods and toxins that feed “bad” bacteria and start consuming probiotic-filled foods and supplements.
What is the right amount of CFUs to be getting every day?
It varies. For most people I recommend a CFU count anywhere between 25 to 100 billion. Gut formula features 10 billion CFU* per serving. If you’re looking to take in more probiotics, check out our SBO Probiotic — it features 50 billion CFU* per serving.

What should I look for in a gut supplement?
There are four specific things to consider when selecting a probiotic supplement:
1. SBOs and Shelf-Stable: Make sure your probiotic supplement includes soil-based probiotics (SBOs) and is shelf-stable, meaning it doesn’t need to be refrigerated. While it might seem odd to "eat dirt," SBOs are truly probiotic superstars. They’re some of the same strains your ancestors took in while foraging and eating fruits and veggies straight out of the garden.
2. Strain Diversity: Look for a probiotic supplement with strain diversity, not just one type.
3. Survivability: Look for strains such as Bacillus coagulans, Saccharomyces boulardii, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus clausii and other similar hardy cultures. 4. Prebiotics: To support the growth of probiotics once they get into your system, I believe it's important to choose a formula that incorporates prebiotics, too.
What do the key ingredients in this supplement benefit?
Bacillus subtilis: Supports normal microflora in the gut†
Saccharomyces boulardii: Supports healthy gut transit time†
Bacillus coagulans: Supports digestive comfort and healthy elimination†
How is this product different than SBO Probiotic?
While this product contains soil-based probiotics, it is not considered to be singularly a probiotic supplement but a supplement that supports overall gut health instead. While our SBO Probiotic contains more probiotics, Gut Formula features additional ingredients commonly used in Traditional Chinese Methods, including tonic mushrooms, micro algae and a unique mineral blend. If you’re looking for extra probiotics, try including both supplements into a healthy lifestyle for optimal results.
