This should answer any questions you may have, if not, please contact us .
What is the I've gut the power mix?
It is above all a prebiotic mixture rich in fiber , which promotes the growth of good bacteria in your intestine and contributes to the production of short-chain fatty acids. In addition, it stimulates the production of a more diversified and beneficial flora for health. It also helps the body to treat intestinal permeability, responsible for so many ailments.
In priority people suffering from food intolerances, which are the most visible marker of intestinal dysfunction. But they are not the only ones concerned, far from it!
Indeed, an intestine in poor condition (porous intestine, SIBO, dysbiosis, etc.) causes a myriad of problems, the main ones of which are:
- Gas, flatulence
- Constipation, diarrhea
- Heaviness, cramps
- Gastrointestinal reflux
- Food intolerances
- Weight: variations, rapid weight gain or loss
- Difficulty falling asleep or too frequent nocturnal awakenings
- skin problems
- sugar addiction
- Bad breath or halitosis
- Anxiety, depression
- Type 2 diabetes
- Autoimmune disease
Note that having one of the problems listed above does not necessarily mean that you have intestinal problems or the reverse. Nevertheless, it is now clear that good general health necessarily induces good intestinal health .
Our diet being very little varied, lacking in fiber and very often harmful, this mixture is for everyone because very few are the lucky ones who do not have problems, big or small, from time to time.
What are the benefits of I've gut the power?
When taken regularly, our prebiotic blend has many positive health effects , including:
- increases the good bacteria in your gut, in number and variety
- helps repair the intestinal mucosa and thus greatly improves problems related to intestinal porosity
- helps to lose weight, creating a feeling of satiety thanks to its high fiber content
- helps control blood sugar by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas (measured by C-peptide levels).
How is I've gut the power different from other products?
As a person suffering from innumerable food intolerances, due to an unbalanced and very little varied microbiota associated with a consequent intestinal permeability, Jean-Christophe did not tolerate any of the existing prebiotics on the market. Indeed the vast majority of those found contain fructooligosaccharides (FOS) or galactooligosaccharides (GOS) and cause more or less unpleasant stomach aches in many people. Some also contain sugars or gluten, which is clearly not desirable when suffering from intestinal problems.
In order to be able to consume it at any time of the day, it was desirable for this mixture to be tasteless, odorless, colorless and soluble. As you will have understood, our prebiotic is distinguished by the following aspects:
- 100% natural substances (acacia, baobab, green banana)
- gluten free
- lactose free
- Sugar free
- without fructooligosaccharides (FOS)
- colorless, odorless, tasteless
- high solubility
- mixable in all preparations, hot or cold, liquid or soluble.
Is your mix gluten free? Vegan ?
YES :) (see above)
I've gut the power does not contain:
Dairy products • Gluten • Soy • GMOs • bulking agents • preservatives • allergens

NO, never, in any of our products.
Does your mix contain inulin, FODMAPs?
No, I've gut the power is FODMAP-free (therefore without inulin), which is difficult to digest.
Can we consume it when we are pregnant or breastfeeding?
YES, clearly. However, like any dietary change, do not hesitate to talk to your doctor / therapist during this beautiful period.
Are there any side effects when taking I've gut the power?
As with any new diet or dietary change, your body may experience a temporary period of acclimatization. However, our special formula greatly minimizes the discomfort that can be felt when taking prebiotics based on FOS or GOS, for example.
During the first week we advise you, if you have a sensitive ground, to start slowly in order to avoid too strong reactions. These could lead to slight bloating, temporary stomach discomfort or a change in the structure of your stool. Any discomfort should disappear within one to two weeks.
So you could start like this:
1 teaspoon (cc), or about 3g, during a meal
Day 4 to 7
2 cc, at any time of the day
From day 8
3cc to distribute, or not, in your meals or drinks.
Our mixture being based on natural products, the changes may not be immediate. For some the effects are felt after a few days, for others it will take several weeks before reaping the benefits. Studies show that after three weeks the changes, in terms of intestinal permeability and variety of microbiota, are significant.
How and when should I take it?
We've created a blend that can be taken anywhere, anytime, with anything. More concretely, this gives:
- in your hot or cold drinks
- sprinkled on your dishes, cold or hot
- in savory or sweet recipes, to give texture or binding
- in yoghurt or compote, in guacamole or humus.
I've gut the power is unalterable: cold or heat does not change its composition, does not alter its structure and does not change its power in any way, that of bringing you lightness and joie de vivre on a daily basis.
Can I take it with other supplements?
Yes No problem. It does not interact with any supplement.
YES, you can clearly consume it during your meals, snacks, snacks. In a drink it also works very well.
What happens if I take more than the recommended dose per day?
There is no risk of overdose. Studies have shown that even up to 50g (16cc!) per day there were no side effects.
What happens if I miss one or a few doses?
Nothing problematic if you sometimes forget to take it. But for optimal results, daily consumption is encouraged.
Do I need to refrigerate I've gut the power?
NO because these ingredients (gum arabic, baobab powder, green banana powder) are in no way sensitive to temperature . However, if you don't want it, no problem!
How do I've gut the power increase my energy?
The fibers, mainly soluble, contained in our mixture arrive in the colon without having been previously digested. These are called resistant starches. These will be slowly fermented to create short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). These are a natural source of energy for the body. Produced slowly, they gradually enter the body to provide a steady supply of energy, without impacting your blood sugar. So no peak, with its ups and downs.
The usual starches are present in very large numbers in our daily diet. Indeed they make up a large part of starchy foods (cereals, bananas, legumes, tubers, etc.). They are broken down by the body, providing the main source of energy (outside the ketogenic diet): glucose.
Resistant starch is different because it is not digested in the stomach or intestine but will be broken down in the colon. It will feed the healthy bacteria that make up our microbiota and will thus repopulate our intestine with good bacteria.
Most types of starch are digested and broken down by the body, providing a source of glucose. Resistant starch is different because it resists digestion in the stomach and small intestine , and becomes food for healthy bacteria (probiotics) living in the colon. For these reasons, resistant starch is a prebiotic and confers many health benefits by promoting the growth of healthy bacteria.
Is I've gut the power a prebiotic or a fiber supplement?
I've gut the power is both a prebiotic AND a fiber supplement. They act like a prebiotic because they resist digestion and feed beneficial bacteria to your colon, supporting your health in many ways.
Can I give I've gut the power to my pet (dog, cat, horse)?
Fiber has the ability to benefit all living beings. You just have to adjust the doses. If on a man we recommend a daily dose of 10g per day here are some indications for your dear and loving companion:
- For your pet it will depend on its size: a 40kg dog can support a teaspoon while a half teaspoon is suitable for a small dog.
- For your horse one teaspoon per day will suffice.
How long can I store the prebiotic mixture?
I've gut the power does not deteriorate over time if kept in its original container. Nevertheless, we advise you to consume it within three years, as a precautionary principle.
Doses up to 50g per day have shown no side effects . So yes, we can say that prebiotics are safe.
Can I give prebiotics to my children?
Children have the same fiber needs as adults, although reduced. An adult man will need about 38g per day (the average consumption is 15g…) and a woman 25. A young teenager will need about 25g.
Can I consume I've gut the power during my fasting phases?
YES because the ingredients present in our mixture are not absorbed by the intestine and therefore in no way create a blood sugar spike.
Where do your ingredients come from? From China?
NO, nothing comes from China. The organic acacia fiber comes from the "gum belt", a wide band crossing sub-Saharan Africa from east to west, between Senegal and Sudan. The baobab, in the process of organic certification, comes from western Mali and the green banana from Peru.
Are there any contraindications?
The three ingredients we use are very safe. To our knowledge, there is no contraindication for a product that is allergen-free, sugar-free, animal product-free and 100% natural.
What makes your packaging so special?
