This exceptional gut health formula offers a specialized extract of licorice which has been specially treated to eliminate glycyrrhizin, thereby decreasing the side effects related to licorice.
L-Glutamine is the body’s most plentiful free-form amino acid and is central in sustaining gastrointestinal function. Glutamine is a significant carrier of nitrogen within the body, which is essential in cellular healing. Even though glutamine can be manufactured by the intestinal mucosa, during periods of physical stress the body may not produce enough of this on its own. The deficit of glutamine can result in epithelial atrophy, necrosis, and ulceration of the gut. Glutamine and intestinal barrier function. (1), (2)
Arabinogalactan is a polysaccharide that gives fermentable fiber to GutAssist and it also offers immuno-stimulatory benefits. It supports gut microflora production, helps produce short chain fatty acids, and reduces ammonia synthesis and absorption. (3)
Licorice Root Extract 10:1 (deglycyrrhized)
Our licorice root has been treated to remove glycyrrhizin, which successfully reduces the risk of unwanted licorice-related complications. Licorice root offers both anti-inflammatory and relaxing properties. Deglycyrrhized licorice has shown to reduce the negative effects of Aspirin-induced mucosal damage. (4)
Aloe Leaf Extract (standardized to 50% polysaccharides)
Aloe vera is an ancient remedy that helps support the healing of epithelial tissue, in particular that of the gastrointestinal tract. The bitter elements have been removed from the aloe in GutAssist, and therefore the laxative effects have been removed. (5), (6), (7)
- How does GutAssist work for leaky gut?
GutAssist supports the healing of the body’s protective membranes along the GI tract, giving these membranes nutrients like L-Glutamine to thrive and heal.

I had been having gassy and painful stomach before I decided to purchase the product to give it a try. I'm a loyal customer of Beewise, so when they introduced Gut Assist, I went ahead and bought the product. I liked the taste of Gut Assist and the powder is easy to dissolve. along with taking the product, I also reduced the portion of my each meal. After about one week taking it, my upset stomach actually stopped hurting and My stomach didn’t feel so extended. It is still too early to tell the full and sustained effect of Gut Assist, but so far I'm pleased with it. Although my review is still premature, my goal is to continue the product for 6 months and then I'll provide more confident and solid feedback.

Have been using Gut Assist for a little over 2 weeks now. I have found the product to actually have a pleasant taste. It mixes well with water so ii is not clumpy when you drink it down. Since it's only been 2 weeks it's a little too soon to tell if it is helping my gut to heal it self. But seeing all the good natural products it contains I am confident that by the time I finish the container I will be feeling. better. I have experienced no stomach cramping or discomfort whatsoever.
