Your gut (also known as your gastrointestinal tract (GI Tract)) plays a key role in absorbing the micro and macro nutrients from the food you eat. These nutrients then go on to be used in the essential metabolic processes that keep you alive.

So, you can see how important it is to maintain a healthy gut. 

There are a number of things you can do to support your gut health. These include; eating a diet that’s high in fibre, restricting processed and sugary foods in your diet, drinking plenty of water, and eating plenty of fermented foods. 

However, some people also choose to give their gut a further ‘helping hand’ by adding gut health supplements to their diet. 

Here at Supplement Needs we’ve developed a range of supplements that are designed to support gut health and help with blood sugar management. 

What gut health supplements are there? 

When it comes to supporting the health of your gut, there are a number of different supplementation options open to you. 

The first, is to take an all-round multivitamin that’s tailored to support the gut. A prime example of this type of supplement is the Supplement Needs Digestive Stack. 

Formulated by Dr. Dean St Mart PhD, the Digestive Stack contains a carefully researched and tested blend of 9 ingredients that are designed to support overall gut health. These ingredients include Betaine, Pepsin, and Zinc Carnosine. Other ingredients include Pancreatin providing the Amylase, Protease, and Lipase digestive enzymes. It also includes the Alpha Galactosidase enzyme to aid in reducing gas from fermentable carbohydrates. 

Whether you’re looking to make gains in the gym and need assistance managing your digestion, or you’re simply looking to get healthier and fitter, the Supplement Needs Digestive Stack is an extremely popular gut health supplement. 

Whilst an all-round supplement is a sensible choice, you may wish to provide more targeted support for a specific part of your digestive system. For example, what if you want to support your microbiome? 

In which case, you’ll love the Supplement Needs Probiotics supplement. This is a supplement that provides 16 distinct probiotic strains (yielding 50 billion colony forming units per capsule). Such a supplement can be ideal if you are suffering from dysbiosis - a condition where your gut microbiome is ‘out of balance’. 

Another more targeted supplement for gut health is Glutamine. Glutamine plays a number of important roles within the digestive system, most notably in maintaining intestinal barrier function, maintaining nucleotide metabolism, modulation of inflammation, regulating stress responses, and the regulation of apoptosis. 

At Supplement Needs you’ll find our 100% Glutamine Powder, which has been formulated to yield 5g of 100% pure Glutamine per serving. 

We have also developed supplements that can potentially assist with blood sugar management. These include Supplement Needs GlucOx, which has been designed to support blood glucose management by acting as a glucose disposal agent to improve pancreatic health. On a related note, Supplement Needs Berberine has also been developed to potentially support blood glucose management by acting as a glucose disposal agent. 

No matter how you’re looking to support your gut health, there’s a range of options to choose from at Supplement Needs. 

Choosing a gut health supplement

As we pointed out above, choosing a gut health supplement often comes down to whether you want an ‘all-round’ supplement, or if you want to target and support a specific part of your digestive system. 

But, aside from that, there are a number of other things to look for in a quality gut health supplement: 

  • Quality and safe manufacture - do you know if your chosen supplement has been safely manufactured? Look for supplements (like ours) that have been manufactured to GMP and ISO standards.

  • Credentials - is your chosen supplement based on real knowledge, expertise, and research? Always check to see who has developed a supplement. Here at Supplement Needs, all of our products have been formulated by Dr. Dean St Mart PhD.

  • Transparency - many supplements are designed to be taken every day (some even multiple times each day). Therefore, you should want to know exactly what you’re putting into your body every day. Supplements Needs operates on a policy of complete transparency, providing a complete breakdown of the ingredients of our supplements and the dosage of those ingredients.

  • Price - supplements are only as good as their ingredients. Many unscrupulous brands will seek to create bigger profit margins by using cheaper ingredients. Yet, when it comes to things like vitamins and minerals, it’s essential that they are of the highest quality. Cheap ingredients tend to have poor bioavailability etc. Here at Supplement Needs we use only the very best ingredients with maximal bioavailability.
