How well is your gut performing?
Ok, so you put all your effort into training and nutrition, but what about giving your gut a workout? At Gut Performance™ we know Athletes, through restrictive diets and intensive training are particularly susceptible to bad gut issues. In fact, we originally formulated Gut Performance™ with athletes in mind.
Training & Your Gut
Research has proven that your gut performance is critical to your athletic performance. The gut and the good bacteria that live there play a primary role in your ability to absorb nutrition; recover from workouts, and handle stress.
Your gut’s microbiota is particularly sensitive to high levels of hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, which are common in training and competing athletes.
Cortisol, along with other chemicals, antibiotics and other drug therapies can also affect the gut’s lining, damaging the junctions that allow nutrients into the bloodstream and keep toxins out. This is commonly known as leaky gut. When toxins enter the bloodstream, it can make you feel ill and trigger an immune response. Chronic inflammation can develop. Leaky gut has also been known to cause muscle soreness after exercise.
The foods in Gut Performance™ not only nourish your microbiome, they contain compounds that help maintain cell integrity and normalise the gut, to help reduce intestinal inflammation.
GUT PERFORMANCE™ – TRAINS YOUR GUT FOR BETTER ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE™
“Hi, my name is Georgie Rowe. I’m a full time athlete and compete for Australia in Rowing and I have Tokyo Olympics well in my sights! I train 3 times a day and it takes a huge toll on my body. It’s difficult to get enough of the right nutrients to enable me to sustain my vigorous schedule. I’m a huge believer in all things gut health. A healthy gut is a healthy mind and body so for me it’s a no brainer to take Gut Performance. Not only does it keep me regular but it is vital at helping me feel energised day after day for training and racing. When I’m performing at my peak the last thing I want to be worried about is having an upset stomach, being bloated or worse, constipated! I couldn’t recommend a product more, the research behind it makes it such a credible source and something I am really proud to be partnered with.”

Get your head in the game
As we all know, competing and winning is as much about the mental approach as it is the physical and technical side of things. This is another area that good gut health can play a critical role.
These days the gut is recognised as a second brain because it produces some very powerful neurotransmitters that regulate mood, appetite, and energy levels. New research shows that the health of your gut has a significant impact on brain function and the balance of neurotransmitter agents. Poor gut health has been shown to increase the onset of mental health issues such as depression and poor cognition.
If you take supplements
Gut Performance is not a supplement it’s a 100% natural food. So, what’s the difference?
The body finds supplements challenging to process. This is because the single compound or limited combinations often lack the essential elements to effectively allow the gut to metabolise and absorb. Also, they are mostly chemically derived or modified, not natural extracts.
Our gut works in a biosystem that needs multiple compounds and nutrients to help it perform at its optimum level. That includes the ability to absorb and utilise micronutrients.
The brilliance of Gut Performance™ is in the combination of the ingredients. It is scientifically designed as a mixture of nutrient-dense whole foods, so unlike supplements it’s well-tolerated and easily absorbed.
The good news is that when you take supplements and proteins with Gut Performance™, they will be much better tolerated and absorbed by the gut.
