Based on Experience & Expertise
ActiFlex Gut Health is the unique result of our team’s personal and professional experience.
Our founder Sandra Witzel lives with chronic health conditions and created this product to help others. She works with Rachel Redman, our Registered Dietitian who brings expertise in nutrition.
Bromelain is a plant sourced digestive enzyme called a protease. Proteases are produced by the digestive system to break down food proteins in the gut.
Regularity is vital for gut health and is supported by DGL Liquorice and Aloe Vera.
Ginger offers support for the function of the intestinal tract.
Slippery Elm is a source of mucilage which supports mucous membranes.
The digestive tract contains billions of live bacteria. A healthy digestive tract contains a wide variety of strains, including Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Lactobacillus Casei.
Two billion CFU total live bacteria per serving.
The formula also includes carefully selected plant extracts of Marshmallow, Fenugreek, Milk Thistle, Chamomile and Nettle plus L-Glutamine, L-Carnosine, MSM, Quercetin and Apple Pectin.
Backed by Science
Our Gut Health formula combines 18 quality ingredients that contribute to a healthier digestive system and microbiome, and in turn a healthier body and mind.
With both prebiotics and probiotics, digestive enzymes, amino acids, flavonoids and a range of botanicals, it's a unique and comprehensive formulation for strengthening and maintaining a healthy digestive system.
1. Examine the Evidence
Everything starts with a detailed examination of scientific research and for nutrients with proven health benefits. We look for human trials (over animal), peer-reviewed papers and meta analysis (which considers several studies). Our exhaustive search explores global thinking, especially the USA and Australia who are often very ahead of the curve on ingredient research.
In our Joint Care formula, our choice of curcumin as a lead ingredient is based on evidence from 17 different, robust studies.
2. Use Multiple Angles
The human body is complex and health requirements are equally multi-faceted, with different elements to consider. For this reason, we look at different aspects of a particular condition or part of the body. To use an analogy: there is no point fixing the roof, if the walls are falling down.
The digestive system is hugely complicated, so our Gut Health formula has digestive enzymes for the stomach, pre-biotics for the small intestine and pro-biotics for the large intestine, to create a total gut solution.
3. Pick Perfect Partners
Nutrients don’t work in isolation: they work in pairs or teams, to support our body’s optimal health. So, we aim to partner ingredients that are proven to work well together. Often, the whole – in terms of a health outcome – is greater than the sum of the parts.
Vitamin D3 and K2 are proven to work better together than in isolation, in particularly in supporting the transport of calcium for bone health, so we use both in our Joint Care formula.
4. Elevate Efficacy
Picking the right nutrients is only half the story, as different nutrients are accessible in different forms and they come with different price tags from a manufacturing perspective. We aim to select the most potent, bio-available forms possible, even if they are pricier.
There are 47 commonly used ingredients that deliver a dose of magnesium. And not all are equally effective. For example, Magnesium Chloride and Oxide have a poorer absorption compared to Magnesium Citrate or Glycinate. But because they are cheaper ingredients, many supplement makers will use them in their products.
5. Define Dosage
Once a nutrient, in the right form, is chosen for a product, we take care to ensure the quantity is optimal. Too little and it will be ineffective, too much and it could cause discomfort. Some ingredient combinations should also come in a specific ratio, to ensure balance.
For example, we chose a high amount Vitamin C in our Joint Care formula, but not so high that it may cause stomach upset.
6. Regularly Refine
New research and thinking becomes available constantly, so once we’ve created a product we don’t sit back. Every year, we review our formulations and, if recommended by our research, we tweak, tinker and tailor the recipe.
After one year of our Joint Care formula being in market, we reformulated to increase the dosage of both Vitamins K2 and D3, in recognition of their importance.

Start by taking Gut Health twice daily, one capsule each time, with food (ideally a meal or substantial snack). Taking supplements with food helps maximise absorption. For many people, it also helps to develop a routine.
After one week, increase to two capsules, twice daily (four in total per day). For example, take two capsules with breakfast and then two with dinner.
This depends on your individual health condition, history and type of medications, so it is not possible to generalise. If you are unsure whether Gut Health can be combined with your prescription medication or taken with certain existing health conditions, we strongly advise you consult with your medical practitioner, providing them with a full list of ingredients (see above).
Gut Health contains both!
Aloe Vera and Apple Pectin are both important prebiotics, whilst Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Lactobacillus Casei are vital probiotics.
Gut Health is 100% suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
Gut Health contains 18 separate ingredients, all chosen for their efficacy and ability to synergistically work together. While other supplements exist that contain one or a few of the ingredients, none have such a broad range of nutrients that offer benefit to digestive system. For example, probiotics work best in combination with prebiotics, so Gut Health includes both. Additionally, the product is made in England, to the highest manufacturing standards (GMP), not overseas.
Compared to buying all these nutrients separately, at less than £1 per day, Gut Health is very good value, especially for a supplement made in England.
