Having the right number of bugs and the right combination of species of bugs for your body is what we are striving for. We want rich and diverse colonies of healthy microbes living in our guts. The majority of these bugs live in and on us because they are in our environment and food. What we eat, how much and how often we eat plays a major role in determining how many and what types of microbes live inside our intestines.
Probiotics and prebiotics supplement and feed gut microbes. However, it is not always a deficiency of gut bugs needing supplementing and feeding but commonly a problem occurs when we get infected by the wrong types of bugs or even an overgrowth of what may be considered healthy bugs that disrupt the balance. We can have too much of a good thing.
Our food has changed due to farming techniques, harvesting, storage and food preparation techniques along with our food choices and purchases.
Per gram of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and grains, we now consume:
A lot of us eat the same food all year round and we don’t change to eat with seasons. In nature, we would cycle between different fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and grains through the seasons. Eating what is fresh and available for the season and then having months off while we wait for it to return. We have been taught to have a balanced diet by balancing our food groups in each meal or day but we tend to select the same foods, our favorite foods to consume most days, all year round.
We typically do not have regular intermittent fasting. In nature we go through phases of feast and famine, our metabolism learns to adapt to changing ratios of protein, carbohydrates, and fats and eating at different times of the day.
Without this variation and change, there is a constant food supply for certain microorganisms and deficiencies of favorite foods for other microbes and that will fuel an overgrowth of some and deficiencies of others. We need variety.
GutRight is a Modbiotic™ formulation. It is a concentrated form of naturally occurring Modbiotic compounds that were once found in abundance in our traditional diet, which was loaded with skins, peels seeds and fiber.
Modbiotics™ are chemicals found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and spices that we simply aren’t eating enough of in our modern lifestyle, due to the overabundance of refined foods in our Western diets.
GutRight is simply supplementing a modbiotic deficient diet with extra modbiotic compounds from plants. Just as we supplement our diet to replace the deficient micronutrients with a multivitamin formulation, we can supplement our diet with deficient modbiotic compounds with GutRight.*
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHT ™ mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAY ™ collagen protein powder or Vegan essential aminos or honey daily.
Short term kickstart / 10-day challenge
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHTTM mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAYTM protein powder or honey 3 times daily with meals for 10 days whilst following the Modbiotic Food List.
This will be directly proportional to what is living inside you and what it smells and sounds like as it leaves you.
The Herxheimer reaction is a normal reaction as the Modbiotics work to promote a healthy balance in the gut When the bad bugs die there can be a release of toxins and some people may experience burping, farting, gurgling, nausea, others may not feel much different at all. 
ZMST is Zinc, Magnesium, Selenium, and Taurine. The nutrients zinc, selenium and magnesium are termed “essential” as you cannot make them inside your body from other materials they must be supplied by the diet. Taurine is “conditionally essential” meaning during times of increased demand your diet may need to be supplemented to maintain adequate levels.*
ZMST may be of benefit to help you maintain adequate intakes of magnesium, zinc, selenium, and taurine. Or if you want to take more during times of increased physical and mental exertion or stress. *
Per capsule ZMST supplies approximately;
100mg of magnesium from approximately 650mg of magnesium citrate
2.5mg of zinc from approximately 20mg of zinc gluconate
6.25mcg of selenium from selenium nutritional yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
25mg of taurine (vegan-friendly source)
Take one capsule 3 times daily. (3 capsules per day)
Under the supervision of your healthcare professional, you can take larger doses up to 3 capsules 3 times daily (9 capsules per day in divided doses) for short periods of time.
CortRX is a powerful combination of adaptogenic herbs; adaptogens help you deal with stress and adapt to the situation at hand via helping support the normal function and efficiency of our stress axis. *
If we’re getting chased by a tiger; massive amounts of adrenalin and cortisol would have been released by the body so we could (hopefully) outrun or outfight the beast. If we didn’t have that response, we would have been the big cat’s lunch; and of course, then not had a chance to make babies. This is partly why there are so many people suffering from stress in the world. You inherited a survival technique that is ideal for surviving acute life-threatening stress but may not be the most efficient way to deal with an internet troll, a bully, a text, bills, public speaking, crowds, or that boss on your back.
Nowadays, most of us aren’t being chased by big cats but our genes are still programmed that way. The ‘beast’ chasing us today is chronic stress, the long-term daily grind, and constant exposure and unavoidable stress unlike the Tiger’s ‘minutes’ of acute intense stress.
Each time, regardless of the trigger we release neurotransmitters (such as noradrenaline) and hormones (in particular cortisol) that catalyze a series of events that help us deal with the challenge. Cortisol is a very interesting hormone as it helps with the survival response through various mechanisms like increasing blood sugar and blocking relaxation and sleepy chemicals (serotonin) but then it has a “negative feedback” effect, letting the body know that you had a stress response and can now switch off and relax.
The problem is with modern life there is constantly one form of trigger or another so there is a constant stimulus to pump out these stress chemicals. Chronic exposure to powerful hormone-like cortisol can increase fat gain, disrupt healthy sleep patterns, immune responses, fluid distribution, and blood sugar. 
Yet here we are with the mortgage, stressful job and even environmental stress we simply can’t escape. We just have to manage these unavoidable stressors better.
To fully understand how to influence hormonal secretions and activities we must first understand the big picture and know the natural cycles that dictate our body’s priorities between thriving or surviving. The Hypothalamus in our brain collects data from our body to inform of potential stressors. Our body can’t afford to wait and see if something is life-threatening before it reacts, therefore it will trigger a stress response, proactively, just in case. The immune system, inflammatory chemicals, emotional stress, fear, pain, temperature extremes, toxicity, training hard, caffeine, etc. will all activate the Hypothalamus to initiate a survival response. The end result is that the hypothalamus sends this stress message to our pituitary gland, which then signals the adrenals to pump out cortisol. This, of course, is a natural response but too much cortisol is very bad for our health.
Cort Rx is formulated to help you maintain a healthy stress response.
If you are going through a stressful period with busy days that are leaving you feeling “wired but tired” and unable to switch off; you can take Cort Rx 1 capsule 3 times daily with food.
If you find that the more tired you get the harder it is to get a good night’s sleep than take 2 Cort RX before bed.
Most people may find they hover between these two phases going from an overflowing cup to empty. Cort Rx can help and you can change the way you take it to suit your current lifestyle.
If you feel you have cortisol dysregulation, try to reduce the stressors in your life. Seek help from medical professionals and discuss Cort Rx as an optional tool to help with your holistic lifestyle strategy.

Turmeric is an herb with an extremely long history of medicinal use, dating back around 4000 years. In Asia, turmeric is used not only as a principal spice but also as a component in many religious ceremonies. Modern medicine has begun to recognize its importance, as indicated by the over 3000 publications dealing with turmeric that has been published within the last 25 years.
Curcumin is the main natural polyphenol found in the rhizome of Curcuma longa (turmeric) and in others Curcuma spp. Curcuma longa has been traditionally used in Asian countries as a medical herb due to its antioxidant , properties and ability to support the body’s healthy inflammatory response.
Boswellia serrata is certainly one of the most valued herbs in Ayurveda. History has shown us that elephants enjoy this herb as a part of their natural diet. Three renowned ancient texts form the pillars of classical Ayurvedic Science, which has its roots in India: Charaka’s Charaka Samhita (c.B.C. 700), possibly the first fundamental medical text in existence.
Gum-resin extracts of Boswellia serrata have been traditionally used in folk medicine for centuries to treat various conditions.*
Animal studies have found that Boswellia has been shown to promote healthy levels of blood markers of oxidative stress.* Human studies have also found a beneficial effect on the function of the body’s natural inflammatory response.*
Myrrh has a long history of use for multiple conditions to supports healthy immune function.*
