Gut Health – Fermented Superfoods
Superfoods Made with Your Gut in Mind
A Superfood Made with Your Gut in Mind
It all starts in our gut, where trillions of bacteria live that are essential for optimal health. The health of our gut defines how our body utilizes the food we eat every day.
Our Superfoods were created to change the way we are nourished, by feeding the body and the multitude of healthy bacteria that resides within, defining our capacity to absorb and utilize nutrients, bolster our defenses and balance our bodily systems.
We use the ancient power of fermentation to unlock the health benefits of our superfood formulas – so nutrients and plant chemicals are liberated and ready for absorption!

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I give fermented organic gut superfoods+ to my child?
Since fermented organic gut superfoods+ is a food, it does not carry the same precautions as a natural health product. Outside of any known allergy to the specific food ingredients contained in fermented organic gut superfoods+, it is considered safe. One thing that some parents are cautious about is fibre amounts. According to kidshealth.org, the recommended daily fiber intake for kids is:
- 1-3 years old: 19 grams
- 4-8 years old: 25 grams
- 9-18 years old: 26-38 grams
fermented organic gut superfoods+ contains 6 grams of dietary fiber, which is a safe amount for even toddlers. However, we recommend starting your child on fermented organic gut superfoods+ slowly, and taking weight vs. a normal adult into consideration as you would with any food your child consumes.
Are all of the ingredients in fermented organic gut superfoods+?
Yes! It is a 100% organic product and is certified USDA organic.
How is fermented organic gut superfoods+ sweetened?
We use an organic stevia leaf extract. There is also an unflavored & unsweetened option available.
Can fermented organic gut superfoods+ and fermented whole body nutrition be added to cooking/baking or does it “damage” or “break down” the beneficial ingredients?
Unlike fermented vegan proteins+, where we know that cooking (e.g. mixing a scoop into pancakes) does not destroy the proteins, the same cannot be said of phytonutrients. Some research shows that cooking can lead to losses of phytochemicals. So to ensure that fermented organic gut superfoods+ and fermented whole body nutrition are as nourishing as they can be, we recommend that you avoid heating to a boil, or cooking over high heat. Instead, we recommend that you shake them up with water, blend into a smoothie.
How would you suggest taking these products? Can they be mixed with other Genuine Health products?
fermented organic gut superfoods+ and fermented whole body nutrition can be taken with water or combined with fermented vegan proteins+, or any of our other great products – whichever is most convenient.
How is fermented organic gut superfoods+ processed into a powder?
Within hours of being picked, the fresh fruits, vegetables and spices in fermented organic gut superfoods+ are fermented using an artisanal, small batch process. Once fermented, it is then dried and milled into a powder.
What is the exact makeup of VitaFiber™?
VitaFiber™ is derived from organic and non-GMO tapioca. Because it is a patented ingredient, the exact makeup of VitaFiber is also a Caramilk Secret of sorts.
Why do some of your containers seem to be half full of product?
Powder supplements get aerated during the filling process (in other words, they take up more space due to the presence of air). But they eventually settle, which contributes to the half-filled appearance. We choose the smallest container available that can be filled to the full container dose—and you can rest assured that even if the container does not look like it’s full, it contains the weight in grams that we promise on the label.
How does fermented organic gut superfoods+ taste?
A glass of fermented vegetables, fruits, culinary herbs and superfoods may not necessarily appeal to you—and we get it. That’s why we made fermented gut superfoods+ in 3 flavour options to suit virtually any palette. So whether you like something sweeter, more tart or refreshing, we have a fermented organic gut superfoods+ for you! Here’s how to choose the right flavour for you:
- Summer Berry Pomegranate is the sweetest and most fruity tasting flavour that we make. It has a light berry flavour and is sweetened with a touch of stevia. Try it shaken with water for a refreshing nutrient boost, or add to an energy ball recipe like this one.
- Orange Ginger is less sweet than Summer Berry Pomegranate, and has a bit of spice, thanks to the ginger! A little stevia adds some light sweetness. You can shake it up with cold water, but it’s also delicious when combined with not quite hot water for something warm to sip on.
- Unflavoured, as the name suggests, contains no flavour, and is not sweetened in any way. Try Unflavoured added to a smoothie.
