GUTonic™ (Farmer's Market Pick Up)
A “GUT feeling” isn’t just cliché; today science has evidence. Many experts refer to the gut as the body’s “second BRAIN.”
The one factor that plays a significant role in GUT health: FIBER.
Maui Tonics® has now developed GUTonic™ a special multi fiber formula to support good digestive health thus in turn brain health. Made with 100% plant based ingredients … our proprietary ‘GUT specific’ spice blend is specifically designed to support both Gut + Brain health including healthy regularity and healthy GUT microbiome. Your GUT is synonymous with your gastrointestinal tract, encompassing the entire digestive tract starting from your mouth. It influences everything from digestion and immune function to mood and cognition.
“A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression.” - Harvard Health
Prebiotic Fiber + Vitamin B-9 (folate): Beets are a great source of GUT friendly fiber. They come loaded with dietary fiber, a carbohydrate important for digestive health. This fiber can help lower the risk of diverticular disease, a disease associated with colon inflammation that causes gas, bloating, irregularly and nausea.
Beets also offer digestive benefits because of their vitamin B-9, or folate, content. Folate aids in new cell growth, so it plays a role in tissue repair -- including the repair of tissues in your digestive tract.
Beets are high in prebiotic fiber, which means they help support the good bacteria your body needs for long-term digestive health.. They also support a healthy GUT microbiome - collection of bacteria of the GUT that helps regulate inflammation, help fight disease, immune function, good cholesterol and blood sugar levels along with other health benefits including improved blood flow and lower blood pressure. Because of its high soluble fiber content, beets also cleanse the colon and help flush out the harmful toxins from the stomach. Many of these benefits are due to their high content of inorganic nitrates which your digestive system converts into nitric oxide.
Prebiotic Soluble/Insoluble Fiber: Psyllium is a well known MUST HAVE fiber source. It is rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber. Because of its excellent water solubility, psyllium can absorb water and become a thick, viscous compound that resists digestion in the small intestine. Psyllium helps you feel full, which can help with weight loss and feelings of hunger; it helps stabilize blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity; and it can even decrease your levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol by interfering with its absorption. Its resistance to digestion allows it to help regulate high cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar levels. It can also aid weight management and relieve mild diarrhea as well as constipation Researchers have conducted a number of studies and have definitively proven that psyllium husk can indeed be considered a prebiotic.
Dietary Fiber + Pectin (prebiotic fiber) + Quercetin: One of the main benefits of apples is their dietary fiber content. Fiber helps keep you regular -- it bulks up and softens your stools to prevent constipation. It also slows digestion, preventing blood sugar spikes that leave you tired and hungry shortly after your meal. Apples contain pectin, a type pf fiber that acts as a prebiotic which feeds your GUT microbiota. Apples are also loaded with Quercetin which may help protect your BRAIN against oxidative stress..
Soluble/Insoluble Fiber + Beta Gluten: The soluble fiber found in oats binds to cholesterol molecules in your intestinal tract, preventing it from entering your bloodstream. Oats also contain insoluble fiber, a nutrient that helps prevent constipation. Insoluble fiber in your food works with the water in your digestive tract to add bulk to and soften your stool to improve regularity. Oats are also high in the soluble fiber Beta-Glucan, which has numerous benefits. It can help reduce cholesterol, blood sugar levels, and promote healthy GUT bacteria.
What are Prebiotics? They are non-digestible compounds that nourish GUT bacteria and help them grow. They are fibers that are fermented by the gut’s microflora when they reach the colon. They are non-digestible food ingredients that can’t be broken down inside the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract, but only upon their arrival to the colon. They are actually food for the natural good bacteria in the body. They feed the beneficial bacteria in your GUT and helps promote the balance of the microbiome.
What is Microbiome? Microbiome is the community of trillions of bacteria and other organisms living in and on us. The majority of those invisible organisms are in our intestinal tract, the gut, where they are capable of influencing virtually every aspect of our health.

Drink GUTonic™ 1 hour before bed for maximum benefits. Mix 1 Tablespoon with 8oz water*, STIR WELL (drink immediately, will thicken as it sits).
Take GUTonic™ at least 1 hour before or 2 to 4 hours after taking other medications.
Store mix in a cool, dry place.
*It is important to take it with water. Drink water regularly throughout the day. Because psyllium slows down the digestion of food, it should be taken with plenty of water. If your fiber intake is generally low, start with a half dose for the first two days, then increase to a full dose so that your body gets used to it. It may take a few days to feel the full benefits.
