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.

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.

  • Fabulous Product

    I’ve been taking these for 7 months, I think the biggest difference has been a huge reduction to IBS type symptoms which were getting worse with the perimenopause and the knock on has been a reduction in overall anxiety, I definitely feel better overall.

  • Love Love Love!

    9 months of taking this and I simply could not live without it. All my symptoms stopped from the third month and it’s wonderful to feel like me again x

  • Never Felt Better

    Since taking the probiotic I have felt better in a number of ways… skin and hair, gut health and less anxiety. I have moved to taking the probiotic at night which meant it had time to work whilst I was asleep and I feel that has made even more of a difference to my digestive system too.

This is my first pack as I've tried so many different products I've gotta say I'm going to continue, I'm not so bloated still a long way too go but can feel a difference. I suffer with IBS to, I'm about to order my next lot as I need to see what happens, and that says it all if I'm about to re-order


Began a 4 week pack and, although the package was slightly damaged upon delivery, I am eager to begin feeling results. I do like how easy the pills are to swallow. I am already planning on ordering more.

Hi Julie,

Many thanks for you review, we are glad you are enjoying The Better Gut so far, that's great to hear. We apologise if there was any damage to your packaging, we do ship in a hard outer shipping box, but do email us so we can gain further detail.

It’s changed my life!

I tried Bettermenopause at first for a couple of months, then cancelled, to see if I felt any different, and I certainly did for the worse, so I now have three months subscription, I wouldn’t be without it. I’m aged 74 and loving life x

Thank you Brendis, we are so happy to hear how much Better Gut helps you and welcome back! x
