What Causes Imbalances in the Gut?

The gut, also nicknamed our “second brain,” does so much more than simply digest food. We now know that good gut health contributes to nervous system health, a strong immune system, heart health, and even our mood and sleep quality.

Yet many of us experience challenges with gut health such as poor breakdown and absorption of food, occasional acid reflux, intestinal permeability accompanied by food sensitivities, subpar detoxification, and irregular bowel function.

The 6 most critical culprits behind these issues: Poor diet, an imbalanced gut microbiome, natural aging, persistent mental stress, exposure to environmental toxins, and a sedentary lifestyle. Even those of us who are eating a balanced diet are still almost definitely missing out on critical phytochemicals that were once a part of our diet — both during our hunter-gatherer days and prior to industrialized farming — and are key to optimizing digestive health.

Promote Your Gut Health with Daily Support

When combined with a stress-reducing and physically active lifestyle, Gut Balance helps deliver on what Dr. Rawls believes are the five keys to supporting your foundation for all-around gut health.

Keys for All-Around Gut Health

1. Stimulate Digestion: Effective digestion alleviates many forms of occasional GI discomfort and gives you the energy you depend on from the wholesome foods you eat. Consuming bitter herbal compounds primes the stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and intestines for optimal breakdown and assimilation of foods. This is especially important given that our production of digestive enzymes and stomach acid naturally decline as we age. Optimizing liver and gallbladder function supports bile production and excretion, which are important for proper fat digestion and absorption. Stimulating good digestion prevents undigested food particles from building up and becoming toxic or eroding the GI tract lining.

2. Enhance Normal Detoxification: In addition to decreasing the inflow of toxins into the body, supporting the detoxifying abilities of organs such as the liver and kidneys is key. The more efficient the detoxification process, the sooner our liver is free to perform other critical functions such as producing and secreting bile, which are key to proper digestion.

3. Support Your Gut Microbiome: Giving the gut microbiome a boost can go a long way towards making sure that the right combination of beneficial microbes are present to help convert and absorb the nutrients in our food and help us maintain a healthy intestinal lining. In addition, many of these microbes are involved in the production of mood-affecting neurotransmitters like serotonin that can affect our sleep quality and mental health.

4. Nourish Your Digestive Tract and Decrease Gut Sensitivity: The gastrointestinal lining is not only home to our beneficial gut flora, it also serves as a protective and moistening barrier that prevents irritating food particles, microbes, and toxins from entering the rest of the body. Nourishing the gut lining can improve membrane integrity and minimize certain food sensitivities.

5. Maintain Healthy Bowel Function: Supporting healthy bowel function not only relieves occasional GI discomfort, it also maintains one of your critical detoxification pathways. Soluble fiber, proper flow of bile and other digestive enzymes, and a healthy gut lining all contribute to normal, healthy bowel movements.

Bonus Benefits: In addition to the above digestive-health benefits, Gut Balance also helps maintain cholesterol and blood sugar levels that are already within a healthy range. Ingredients in Gut Balance have also been used historically to support the skin, thanks to the liver’s role in skin health.*

  • Slippery Elm Bark

  • Berberine

  • Dandelion Extract

From Dr. Bill Rawls:

"Even if you’re doing everything right, there’s still something crucial missing from your diet that used to be there. That something is phytochemicals found in herbs and foods that our ancestors used to consume regularly, prior to modern-day farming practices."

    Really improves the gut

    I have dealt with less than perfect digestion for years and after a few weeks on this product, I realized that I was no longer experiencing difficult digestion or bloating. Yay! for good supplements

    Helps Rebuild Gut Health

    I was prescribed antibiotics frequently for sinus infections throughout my life and the Gut Balance has helped rebuild my gut from antibiotic use and the poor diet I used to have. I take 3 of these capsules before my largest meal of the day. I have also noticed that I don't get sick as much as I had in the past. Pro tip: I sometimes take the Gut Balance and 20 Vital Plan Chlorella tablets before a long walk/jog, which helps with detox.

    I have tried for 2 months to take this. I was on 1 pill a day, then 1 pill every other day. It caused gut cramping and urgent bathroom runs sometimes when I was out running errands. I stopped it. Too difficult for me to want to continue.

It's Okay to Have Questions!

More Information About Gut Balance

What is the recommended serving plan for this product?

Take 3 capsules up to twice daily with 8 oz. of water/liquid, or as directed by your healthcare provider.
Allow 2-3 hours between ingestion of Gut Balance and pharmaceutical medications, and consult your healthcare provider before use if you have a biliary obstruction. Bitter herbs stimulate gastric acid, which may cause discomfort if you have hyperacidity.

I’m taking a probiotic. Why isn’t that enough?

The balance of bacteria within your GI tract is as unique to you as your fingerprint. So, while probiotic supplements provide “good” gut flora, there is no guarantee they will establish the right balance for your body. The ingredients in the Gut Balance do a good job of supporting your body to naturally maintain your unique gut microbiome balance and often negate the need for a probiotic.
