Can I take The Better Gut throughout perimenopause and menopause?

Our supplement has been specifically formulated for perimenopausal and menopausal women and so assuming you fit into this demographic, our product should be for you. While probiotics are generally considered safe for most people, there are certain situations where caution is warranted, especially when combining them with other medications or treatments. By consulting with a healthcare professional, such as a doctor or a pharmacist, individuals can receive personalised advice based on their specific health situation, medications they are taking, and potential interactions between probiotics and HRT. This ensures their safety and allows for optimal health management tailored to their individual needs.

What is the significance of 50 billion CFU?

CFU stands for colony-forming unit—the standard way of measuring the quantity of live strains in probiotic supplements. It refers to the number of live, active microorganisms present in one The Better Gut capsule. We pride ourselves on our optimal dosage - 50-billion CFU, enough to have an impact but not so many to overwhelm the delicate balance of the gut microbiome.

Is it safe to take post cancer treatment?

The Better Gut has no known contraindications for use following breast and ovarian cancer treatment but you should always check with your Doctor first. It is safe to take alongside an aromatase inhibitor like Tamoxifen.

Use is not advised in patients with severe immuno-compromised conditions and at risk of opportunistic infections and in those with badly damaged GI tracts.
