Happy birthday to us!

This month marks three years since we launched to Market and almost 7 years in the making!

Gut Performance was actually born almost 10 years ago in 2010 from a CSIRO and Macquarie Uni research group led by our own Dr Mal., Scientist and Visiting Fellow of Macquarie Uni.

Dr Mal was given a mission and a government grant to find out if sugarcane pulp could be repurposed for health and wellness that could be clinically proven.

Dr Mal and his Team spent a lot of time in his favourite place, the lab, to work out how to extract the sugarcane fibre so the whole cell could be kept intact. They discovered that heat and chemicals destroyed the whole-cell fibre, so a technique to extract the cell fibre intact was developed and they struck gold.

It was deemed to be more effective than any other soluble fibre on the market.

Linda Boydle, one of our Gut Performance Founders, was working as the Clinical Consultant and worked with Mal and his Team. The ingredient was trialled with great results in managing Blood Sugar Levels and improving gut health. Clinical trials were conducted as well as external trials and we used diverse groups of people with varying ongoing health issues or ongoing treatment for acute and chronic illness as well as women who considered themselves to be ‘healthy’ but suffering weight gain and bloating.

In 2014, we wanted to see whether this amazing by-product would affect a ‘healthy person’ and we asked WBFF World Champion, Hattie Boydle to be our guinea pig.

She said no. Hattie is of the belief that if she isn’t using or needing a product she won’t take it or promote it.

It was a year later that Hattie was in early stages of comp prep for the ‘Worlds’ that she caught a stomach ‘bug’ and we encouraged her to try the early version of Gut Performance.

She has never looked back.

From there we became Every Body Every Day, the Boydle Family Business.

Working with our great friend and Scientist Whizz, Dr Mal, Hattie had tremendous input into the key ingredients into Gut Performance. “They must have some benefit for gut health and exercise recovery” she insisted. All evidenced-based, researched and most importantly 100% natural Food.

As an active, health-conscious family, we wanted a product that we would take ourselves and be homegrown.

We launched Gut Performance™ Original, a Natural ‘Food as Medicine’ product onto the shelves and into the Health and Fitness industry in late August 2018.

Gut Performance™ is something we are so incredibly proud of. A ‘Supermix’ of three PREbiotic foods with their essential micronutrients. The highest quality ingredients, scientifically formulated in a unique blend made with great love and care and it works.

Our Testimonials have blown us away and come from all over the world.

Gut Performance™ Original has been certified by Monash University as low FODMAP and available on the monashlowfodmap App.

Every Body Every Day is a gut health-focused company and we will continue to research and develop new 100% natural ‘food as medicine’ products.

We are launching the ultimate gut repair product!

‘Endo Warrior’ Chelsey on Gut Performance

Diagnosed with Endometriosis, Chelsey Costa has suffered the many painful side effects linked to the condition including bloating, cramping and pain, for years. After just 3 days of taking Gut Performance, she began to notice the difference, particularly a decrease in menstrual-related bloating.

Chelsey has now been taking Gut Performance for 4 months and notes a ‘huge improvement’ in her Endometriosis symptoms day-to-day.

“It’s nice to finally find something that’s good for you, that has so many other health benefits for you and your body and that reduces the symptoms that would normally be treated with pain relief or other medication. It’s a nice natural relief.”

Introducing our new Carbon Offset Initiative!

Introducing our new Carbon Offset Initiative!

There’s only one thing we’re more passionate about than our business… the planet! This is why we’re making an effort to use sustainable practices in every part of our business. We’ve teamed up with CarbonClick, a New Zealand company making it easy for people and businesses to help fight climate change.

CarbonClick looks like a green button at checkout. When you click it, a small contribution is added to your basket which purchases carbon offsets. These offsets reduce the environmental impact of the carbon emissions related to the purchase. CarbonClick’s offsets fund forest restoration, tree planting, and renewable energy projects here and around the world. We’re proud to be part of the fight against climate change.

We are also making our own contributions to CarbonClick to reduce our environmental footprint, as well as changing our practices to reduce it. We hope you’ll join us in creating a sustainable future, by choosing to CarbonClick with your purchase.

We will also be changing our Tub Packaging to Oysterlean

Oysterlean is a game-changing product derived by refining a readily available bio-marine waste material sourced from seashells that results in a bio-renewable resin capable of replacing oil-based plastics.

Refining this non-food bio-marine waste material as a bio-renewable substitute not only reduces the need for fossil fuel-based resins, Oysterlean provides improved sustainability performance to plastics packaging in three areas of our sustainability mission. Environment application, cost stability and production compatibility.

How did you get into fitness? Was it before or after kids?

About 12 years ago I put on alot of weight and didn’t feel comfortable within myself. So I did what most people do and went for a quick fix and also started walking everyday.

I love being outside and walking, so for me it was easy to do.

It wasn’t until after I had kids that I joined the gym to do the classes but it didn’t take long until I was hooked and in the real gym lifting weights.

You are a mum of 3 beautiful, happy, healthy kids with your own beauty business. How do you manage your time to train, run a happy family and eat so well?

Eating well, training in the gym and having a fun and happy life with my babies is my priority. So I organised my time around those things.

I block out time in my diary every weekday for the gym and my clients.

Also having meals prepped or just having healthy options ready to go keeps you on track.

Then when the weekend come, we love it. That’s my time to just be with the kids and enjoy getting active and adventurous outdoors.

I’ve usually always got the kids lunchboxes packed with goodness, even on the weekends. It just makes thing easy.
So the key is to be organised and get up early so you start your day right.

As health clinicians here at Gut Performance we are blown away and seriously impressed with how you feed your kids ‘the rainbow’ of plant-based food in their lunchboxes and smoothies. And they love it! Any tips for our Gut Performance mums out there wanting to do the same?

Thank you so much, that absolutely means so much to me.

Before I had kids I had already decided that we were going to live a fit and healthy lifestyle together. I wanted them to know healthy and nutritious food was what we eat daily to fuel our minds and bodies. Not just something you only do when you want to lose weight or have a health kick for a couple of weeks. Healthy eating and looking after ourselves is a way of life. And we love it!

So now with their lunches, smoothies, smoothie bowls and healthy treats, it’s not something I really think about, it’s just something I do with a passion for my babies.

My advice to other mum’s and dads is to involve the kids. Get them to choose what veggies and fruit they want. Give them choices of healthy alternatives to things they may be eating now. Get them in the kitchen so they can be involved in the process of creating goodness.

But the biggest thing is YOU have to be the role model. You have to show them healthy living by doing it yourself aswell.
They will do what we do and they will love what we love. So show them with love and passion.

4. Your vibrancy and energy are contagious! We know you eat a diverse range of good food and understand the importance of good gut health. Why did you start Gut Performance and what difference, if any, do you feel?

Although I was eating really well, I was still getting bloated every night. Some nights I was so bloated I felt like I was out of breath.

I tried cutting out certain foods and slowly introducing them back in to see what was causing the bloating but couldn’t really find anything.

I saw a fitness bikini model on Instagram who said her bloating had reduced since using Gut Performance, so I decided to give it a go. It has made the world of difference, I very very rarely get bloated anymore. I would never give this product up, EVER.

GP Lover: Debbie

Meet Gut Performance Lover Debbie. Mother of 3 boys. Grandmother of 2. Cake Baker. Yoga Lover. Cancer Survivor.

Who is Debbie?

I am 64 years old. A Mother, Wife, Grandmother. I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphona in May 2011. I had chemotherary over a period of 5 years and continue on immunotherapy to this day.

When and why did you introduce Gut Performance into your Every Day?

Amongst other things, Chemotherapy and the medications I had to take really affected my gut health. I became severely bloated and constipated, two things that had never happened to me before. I didn’t want to rely on laxatives as I felt it was a band-aid effect to bigger gut health issues I had going on.

It was at this time I had heard of the trials of the ingredients in Gut Performance and asked the Clinical Team if I could be a part of the trial. That was 2012 and I have never looked back.

I have Gut Performance every day, twice a day if I am on a course of antibiotics or if I am extremely nauseated. I know that I am getting the essential micronutrients into my diet for my gut health. I can honestly say that over the time I have been taking Gut Performance my gut health and regularity has been amazingly managed.

What other things did you do to help on the road to Recovery?

I’ll credit Gut Performance and maintaining my gut health as a huge part of my recovery along with a positive outlook, Yoga, walking, a healthy diet and being surrounded by family and friends.

You are fit and happy and healthy Deb. Any tips for those on a similar road as you?

  • Keep Positive.
  • Care for your health generally and look after your gut.
  • Eat well.
  • Exercise regularly even if it’s a short walk 

GP Lover: Claudia Weston

“Hi, my name is Claudia Weston.  I am 21 years old, I live on the Gold Coast and I’m training to become a professional stunt performer.  I have been a competitive athlete from the age of 5. I started off as a swimmer and surfer then moved into international power tumbling gymnastics.

I grew up in a family of both international elite athletes and fun competitive athletes – my brother and dad both surf competitively and my mum was an Australian BMX racer at a young age as well as being a gymnast and runner.

I currently coach tumbling /trampoline and work alongside the NDIS helping children to move and achieve a range of motion they have never before been able to perform. Being hands-on with coaching 6 hrs per day and training every day it’s important that my recovery is quick.

I started taking Gut Performance around 12 months ago due to always feeling bloated and digestive issues alongside a slow recovery. I did try 2 other gut health products before Gut Performance, but there were no changes in how I felt with energy levels or with my digestion.

It wasn’t until I decided to try Gut Performance after hearing amazing reviews on it. A week after taking Gut Performance daily I noticed a huge difference in my energy levels – I was less fatigued, recovered faster – but best of all it’s made me ‘regular’ again! Now my mum is addicted to the product and lots of my family and friends are now taking Gut Performance and have never looked back.

I truly do believe fixing your overall health must start in the gut. I am forever thankful for Gut Performance and would be lost with out it. Your health starts from the inside.”

Welcome Hattie Ivy Morton!

Certainly our youngest Gut Performance ambassador yet!! A big congratulations to long-time Gut Performance Lover @lizemorton who welcomed another Hattie into the world in May 2020.

GP Lover: Alexia better known as Fat to Goddess!

Meet Alexia, better know these days as Fat to Goddess!

What got Alexia started on her health and wellness journey?

The fear of dying!

“Because when I jumped on the scales and saw I was 212kgs I new enough was enough and I had to change. My son needed me around and I needed to be alive. It’s been the hardest thing I have ever done but it’s also the most rewarding.”

So, what are some of the things you did to help you on your quest for a healthier lifestyle?

“I had seen a few posts regarding Gut Performance and I was looking for something like this for ages that would help me. I have tried so many things to help me go to the bathroom more frequently and also to not feel as bloated but nothing had worked until I tried this which will be my forever staple now.

How has GP helped you?

“It has helped me dramatically!!!!! I don’t feel bloated, I go to the bathroom so much more and I feel that it’s not only cleaning but also making me feel healthier and again less bloated.”

What message would you give to others wanting to achieve similar goals?

“I would tell people that are on a similar journey to myself to never give up no matter how many times you fail, no matter how many times you slip up.”
