Core Nutrition Gut Support
The gut, or gastrointestinal (GI) tract is one of the largest systems responsible for keeping our body in working order. Food and a wide variety of nutrients pass through the separate parts, being broken down and absorbed only to be shuttled to their final destination to begin to do their job. In addition to this food, countless numbers of microorganisms from the environment pass through the gut – some of which may be detrimental to health and alter the integrity of the GI tract. Core GUT was formulated to provide all around GI tract support with beneficial bacteria in a custom probiotic blend, a useable form of food for these microorganisms in a prebiotic, beneficial by-products in a post biotic, and digestive enzymes to aid in the breakdown of crucial nutrients. This combination of ingredients has been shown to support the growth of healthy gut bacteria*, enhance immune function*, provide support for gut lining integrity*, and display protective effects on gut environment*.

- Bifidobacterium longum (2 billion CFU)
Bifidobacterium longum is classified as a multifunctional probiotic strain that has been shown to be highly effective in alleviating GI distress, immunological and infectious diseases. These benefits have been shown to be attributed to its ability to stabilize the gut microbiota and improve the overall intestinal environment.
- Bifidobacterium lactis (500 million CFU)
Lactic acid bacteria are among the most populated microflora that live within the human large intestine. They are believed to be play an integral role in the homeostasis of the gut microbiome as well as are highly beneficial for overall health.
Lactobacillus 16.5 billion CFU
As arguably the most common probiotic group, Lactobacillus can aid the body in the breakdown of foods, absorption of key nutrients, and defend against destructive organisms that can cause distress and other diseases.
- Lactobacillus acidophilus (4 billion CFU)
One of the most common probiotic types that can be most commonly found in many fermented foods, and added to yogurts, and cheeses. This type of bacteria is found in the intestines and plays a vital role in boosting human health. This bacterium helps produce lactic acid. It goes through a process of producing an enzyme called lactase, which helps break down lactose into lactic acid. This bacterium has been extensively studied for its benefits of alleviating symptoms pertaining to IBS, diarrhea, bloating, and other GI distress.
- Lactobacillus plantarum (2 billion CFU)
L. plantarum has a significant importance on boosting antioxidant activity as well as helping maintain intestinal permeability. It can work to suppress the growth of bacteria that produce gases in the intestines as well as benefit some who suffer from IBS.
- Lactobacillus bulgaricus (2 billion CFU)
L. bulgaricus has been used mostly as a probiotic to help aid in the improvements of digestion, prevent diarrhea, and to relieve symptoms associated with IBS.
- Lactobacillus casei (2 billion CFU)
Naturally found in the gut as well as some fermented foods, L. casei has been shown to positively regulate our digestive system by contributing to the reduction of diarrhea. It can also positively impact constipation, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), IBS, lactose intolerance, and ulcerative colitis.
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus (2 billion CFU)
L. rhamnosus is able to promote immune-responsiveness by reducing the expression of several activation and inflammation markers on monocytes and by increasing the production of interleukin in macrophages. It produces a biofilm that can protect the mucosa and also produces soluble fibers that are beneficial to the gut.
- Lactobacillus brevis (2 billion CFU)
L. brevis is a type of lactic acid bacteria found in milk-based products, fermented products, and in some plants as they decompose. Its benefits include alleviating diarrhea related symptoms in children and supporting natural killer (NK) cell activity in older individuals. These NK cells are a type of pathogen-killing cell that can fight off infections and stop the growth of cancerous cells.
- Lactobacillus gasseri (500 million CFU)
L. gasseri is a unique strain of bacteria commonly found in the genital, urinary, and digestive systems of the body. It possesses many benefits but it has shown particular promise in aiding positive changes in weight and improvements in body composition. It has also shown promise in reducing blood and liver cholesterol, and reducing oxidative stress in the body.
- Lactobacillus fermentum (500 million CFU)
L. fermentum has been reported to enhance immunologic response as well as prevent community-acquired GI and upper respiratory infections. This specific strain of Lactobacillus also produces potent antimicrobial peptides, which can then be used as a food preservative or as alternatives in antibiotics.
- Lactobacillus reuteri (500 million CFU)
This well studied strain of Lactobacillus can colonize a large number of mammals and provide essential benefits. Found in the GI tract, urinary tract, skin, and breast milk, the benefits of this strain include the production of antimicrobial molecules that can inhibit the colonization of pathogenic microbes and strengthen the microbiota composition of its host.
- Lactobacillus paracasei (500 million CFU)
As a potent strain with immune modulation properties, several studies have shown that L. paracasei can provide relief from inflammatory bowel disease as well as alleviate inflammatory symptoms associated with colitis and other colon related issues.
- Lactobacillus salivarius (500 million CFU)
This probiotic species is widely found in the GI tract of mammals and has been shown to possess benefits that include relief from IBS related symptoms, pancreatic necrosis, and atopic dermatitis.
- Saccharomyces 5 billion CFU
Saccharomyces boulardii (5 billion CFU) is a specific type of probiotic yeast that has been shown to possess benefits for human gastrointestinal health. The probiotic benefits of this organism include fighting against toxins and other harmful bacteria, increasing the function of the gut biome, providing inflammation relief for the gut lining to improve efficiency, boosting immune function, and helping to restore optimal nutrient levels, like short chain fatty acid production, for the gut.
Tributyrin (as Core Biome™ 30% yielding 300mg)
The gut microbiome is responsible for contributions that maintain intestinal balance. Disturbances in this homeostasis can cause alterations in the metabolic and fermentation byproducts that occur in the gut. With the gut being so closely tied to many bodily processes involving many of the body’s vital systems, optimal gut health is of importance. The microbiota of the gut ferment undigested sugars to product short-chain fatty acids such as, acetate, propionate, and butyrate. Butyrate is especially essential as it has mechanisms of action that include effects of suppressing inflammation and immunoprotection, serving as the primary nutrient that provides energy to colonocytes, and regulating functions of gene expression, gut tissue development, oxidative stress reduction, and diarrhea control. When butyrate is depleted or scarce, GI distress and other injury can occur.
Sunfiber® Guar Fiber
Sunfiber®, a fermented, dietary fiber, is a proven prebiotic fiber that increases both Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus levels with the aim of providing digestive support. These beneficial bacteria promote a healthy gut microbiota and aim to enhance the overall function of the gut, thus leading to increased function of the other vital systems of the human body.
Digestive Enzyme Blend (Protease, Lactase, Amylase, Lipase)
One can easily make the argument that dietary enzymes – and in particular, digestive enzymes – are the most consistently underrated and overlooked component to a supplementation regimen. These powerful little protein structures influence or outright control a vast, complex network of bodily functions. In a fitness-specific context, digestive enzymes play an absolutely crucial role in the breaking down of dietary carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into their constitutive parts, and therefore allow your body to use them in various processes (glycogenesis, protein synthesis, etc).
