Are you struggling with symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, bloating, and other signs of an unhappy gut? We know about several products that can give you some relief, and we’ve made a list of the best supplements for gut health we offer in our online wellness store:

Prebiotics & Probiotics

1. Thorne Prebiotic+

Many prebiotics are fiber-based, which can cause gas and bloating; however, this polyphenol and beneficial bacteria formula is gentle on your gut. Benefits include supporting a balanced gut microflora, a healthy metabolism, urinary tract health, and good digestion. It comes in a dissolvable disc form, so you can easily add it to your preferred beverage for convenient use.

2. Pure Encapsulations Probiotic G.I.

Probiotics are the best supplements for gut health because they add healthy bacteria to support a balanced microbiome. The 6 strains in this supplement work to improve the immune-gut barrier function and support intestinal cell health.

3. Rooted Intuition Probiotic + Saccharomyces

Poor gut health is the result of an overabundance of harmful organisms in the gut, whether from poor diet, medications, or excessive alcohol consumption. This probiotic blend includes 7 bacteria strains sealed from moisture, heat, and light, ensuring the active ingredients remain protected until released into the G.I. tract.


4. Thorne Perma-Clear

This supplement for gut health is particularly beneficial for those with a leaky gut. L-glutamine protects the intestinal cells, and N-acetylglucosamine (NAG) also supports your gut’s mucus layer. Other ingredients include several healthy bacteria strains to strengthen the growth of helpful gut flora.

5. Rooted Intuition Gut Guard

The G.I. tract is responsible for keeping unwanted microorganisms from reaching the bloodstream, and it’s dependent on your diet, stress, and the microbial balance within the gut. This powder supplement helps to maintain the health of this necessary gastrointestinal lining with ingredients like L-glutamine, N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine, deglycyrrhized licorice root, and zinc.

Tumeric (Curcumin)

6. Thorne Metabolic Health

These forms of bergamot and curcumin used in this supplement have been researched for their superior absorption rates.

7. Rooted Intuition Complete Tumeric Matrix

This is a great immune-boosting supplement containing a blend of phytonutrients found in turmeric, including curcumin. It’s a bioactive formula that works to build up the immune system by encouraging normal inflammatory responses and toxin removal.


8. Pure Encapsulations G.I. Fortify

Triphala is a well-known Ayurvedic blend of extracts that assists in colon health and the detoxification process. This powder supplement also includes a source of soluble fiber, psylliums as well as flaxseed, glutamine, slippery elm, marshmallow root, and a few other nutrients that support optimal bowel movements and overall G.I. function.

Caprylic Acid

9. Pure Encapsulations Caprylic Acid

Caprylic Acid

Caprylic acid is a fatty acid that can have positive effects on the digestive system. The calcium and magnesium caprylate in this supplement provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and promote a healthy environment for microflora to thrive in the gut.

Immunoglobulin G (IgG)

10. Rooted Intuition SBI Binder

This IgG supplement is the only pure, dairy-free source available and plays a critical role in several immune system functions. Immunoglobulin G binds up harmful toxins in the GI tract, which helps to strengthen the immune-gut barrier and promote healthy inflammatory responses.
