Introducing Pernille Jensen, the brain behind The Gut Co
A naturopath and clinical nutritionist, Pernille wanted to bring to market an easy way for people to improve their gut function. In her practice, she was constantly sending people to overseas websites to get the products that she knew had been trialled to give results and was frustrated with the lack of quality gut and skin products on the Australian market. Pernille took action and to meet the demand, created these quality gut and skin products herself!
The Gut Co firmly believe that our health depends on the health of the environment. Pernille wanted to create a more sustainable way to store powders, avoiding using plastic tubs to give people the opportunity to have a reusable container that they can fill their product into month after month.
FEED is The Gut Co’s naturopathically formulated blend of prebiotics and probiotics which act as food for your good gut bacteria. Prebiotics are found in many high FODMAP fruits and vegetables, so FEED is a great substitute for this fibre that you may be missing on the low FODMAP diet. A five-gram daily dosage (the dosage contained in one serve of FEED) of partially hydrolysed guar gum (PHGG) has been shown to reduce constipation as well as increase counts of Bifidobacteria and lactobacillus.
The prebiotic effect of Acacia gum feeds the good bacteria and helps restore the gut lining. Saccharomyces boulardii (SB) is lactose and dairy-free, and one of the most researched probiotics for various conditions. The clinically trialled dosage (500mg) can be found in a twice-daily serve of FEED and has been shown to reduce traveller’s and antibiotic-induced diarrhoea and protect against bad bacteria.
FEED is virtually tasteless and can be taken in plain water, added to your tea or coffee or added to your smoothie or protein shaker. To take, mix 8g (1 heaped tsp) into 250mL of water or other liquid once or twice a day.
FEED and REPAIR complement each other in addressing gut problems and improving skin, hair and nail health, and bolstering your immune system.
REPAIR is a complete, naturopathically formulated super powder of ‘skin vitamins’ designed to aid in skin health and strengthen your hair and nails. It also aids in strengthening the gut lining which contains 70% of the immune system.
REPAIR contains a unique blend of superfoods and a clinically trialled dosage of hydrolysed collagen, formulated into their proprietary blend DermaRegen™. Superfoods Maqui berry, Dunaliella salina, Kakadu plum, Acerola and Guava all supply vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, and more, all essential nutrients for glowing skin and a healthy gut. Astaxanthin is also featured and provides one of nature’s most potent antioxidants to help reduce signs of ageing including wrinkles and age spots as well as improve skin elasticity and moisture.
Finally, Aloe vera, Glutamine and Zinc assist in repairing the gut lining while Pomegranate husk and Apple pectin act as potent prebiotics for your gut microbiome. All of these incredible ingredients in one product – amazing!
Mix 6.5g (1 heaped teaspoon) into 250mL of water or other liquid once or twice a day. 1 serve a day is perfect for maintenance while 2 a day will help your systems bounce back after a period of suboptimal health choices. REPAIR dissolves easily into any liquid and is delicious on its own in water.
Both FEED & REPAIR have been independently laboratory tested by FODMAP Friendly to make sure the powder is within low FODMAP limits. Any seemingly high FODMAP ingredients have been used in small enough serves so that the approved serving is low FODMAP.
