Learn how GutPro® is different than any other probiotic on the market, and whether this custom blend is right for you and your family
We wanted to take time today to give you some background on our GutPro® probiotic. We get a lot of questions about this special product, as it’s very different from the mass produced, store bought probiotics — and our new customers want to be assured they’re getting a supplement that fits their unique, important needs.
To start, our philosophy is that overall health begins in the digestive system; so a healthy gut equals a thriving, happy body. Consider that an astounding 80% of your entire immune system is located in your digestive tract!
In addition, we believe (and are living proof!) that a real food diet is the foundation in recovering and optimizing one’s health. Think healthy fats, wild caught fish, organic vegetables, and the elimination of GMOs, additives, preservatives, chemicals and processed sugar/flour.
So, what is GutPro®? Created for people with extremely sensitive digestive systems, we believe it’s a game changer!* Certain strains found in other probiotics that can cause histamine, acidosis or other adverse reactions are not present in GutPro®. You also won’t find common allergens, fillers or additives. Our pure, premium and hypoallergenic formula is designed to help "kick start" the digestive system and maximize the assimilation of vital nutrients — ultimately supporting the entire immune system.*
Before we get into the nitty gritty of GutPro®, here’s a quick primer on probiotics for those of you who are unfamiliar.
Probiotics are bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. They have been in our systems since the moment we stepped out into the world!
Newborns are exposed to their mother’s bacteria when making their way down the birth canal. This kicks off the production of good and sometimes pathogenic bacteria in the baby’s GI tract, depending on the health of the mother.
We also get probiotics from our food. Historically, there were plenty of probiotics in our diets from eating fresh foods from rich soil and by fermenting our foods. However, because of dead soils from over farming and a public phobia of bacteria (like sterilized foods, antibacterial soaps, preventing children from playing in the dirt, etc.) our American way of life now contains far fewer probiotic bacteria.
Healthy bacteria are vital to rebooting your digestion and rebuilding your immunity. Make no mistake, the right blend of beneficial bacteria — in the form of probiotic-rich foods and the right supplements — is the life force inside you. And your gut flora is responsible for how you respond to most everything you encounter on your health journey.*
Now, here’s what makes GutPro® stand out…
Created with feedback from parents, doctors, the ultra-sensitive and those on special diets
GutPro® has a unique birth story. Its creators (Organic 3, a sister company to Corganic) heard from customers that people — most notably moms of children with autism, food allergies and other health issues — had negative reactions to other probiotics containing certain strains and fillers.
With probiotics, not all strains are beneficial for everyone. People, especially children struggling with particular sensitivities, can find that some probiotics do more harm than good. So over the years, Organic 3 continued to gather feedback from parents, practitioners and people on diets including GAPS, SIBO, Body Ecology, autism/PDD-NOS, gluten free, soy free or casein free.
With this invaluable information, they created a therapeutic-grade probiotic that was unlike anything on the market in its suitability for “the sensitive of the sensitive” and the “canary in the coal mine,” as well as bio-hackers and other health conscious individuals looking for an ultra clean probiotic.
Adults and children 3 and over can take GutPro®. For toddlers and babies, there is GutPro® Infant.
Highest quality ingredients and blended strain profile
GutPro® is indeed a potent, very condensed and clean probiotic with just the right blend of bacteria. As we touched on above, we omitted strains that caused reactions in the sensitive people that helped guide us. We carefully selected only those strains that support the digestive system and punctuate a real food diet.*
GutPro® contains eight clinically-proven strains of human sourced probiotics (L. plantarum, L. gasseri, L. salivarius, B.bifidum, B. breve, B. infantis, B. longum, B. lactis), and offers 25+ billion CFU’s per 1/32 teaspoon.
Only the highest-quality probiotic bacteria are used in GutPro®. All of our strains have been thoroughly researched, documented and banked in recognized microbial culture collections. Additionally, only human-compatible species of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are used in our formula (both colonizing and transient species with documented benefits are used).
All of these probiotics play a role when it comes to comfortable, healthy digestion – the foundation for longevity and beautiful health.*
Meanwhile, these strains work synergistically. If you’re coming to us with concerning symptoms or chronic health conditions, our belief is that no single strain in particular is the magic bullet for specific ailments and conditions. This is because they should work together, as they do in a healthy digestive system. If your gut bacteria is destroyed by pharmaceutical drugs and antibiotics, the toxins we’re all subjected to, chemicals and a diet full of sugar, GMOs, processed grains and trans fats, the idea is to address the overall gut first.*
It’s also important to note that GutPro® is comprised of freeze-dried bacteria. Old school probiotics contained live cultures that died in transit due to warm temperatures. Freeze dried bacteria are able to withstand warmer temperatures during transit.
Free of common allergens
What we have omitted in GutPro® is just as important as the incredible bacteria we’ve chosen. GutPro® is guaranteed to be free of common allergens, preservatives, binders and fillers, including gluten and dairy proteins. Only Kosher-certified vegetarian capsules are used if you choose to purchase it in capsule form (link to capsules page) (these capsules contain cellulose, which is the most benign filler that satisfies the requirements of the most demanding customers).
GutPro® is sought out by communities including GAPS, SIBO, Body Ecology, Autism/PDD-NOS, PANDA/PANS, gluten-free/casein-free/soy-free, Chrohn’s and celiac for the following reasons:
- Contains only histamine-neutral or histamine-degrading strains of probiotic bacteria.
- Does not contain L-Acidophilus, which has been scientifically shown to contribute to d-lactic acidosis.
- Does not contain any spore-forming strains of probiotics.
- Does not contain streptococcus thermophilus or other strains linked to irritation.
- Is free of inulin and other prebiotics.
- Is free of excipients and other added ingredients i.e. magnesium stearate, silica, titanium dioxide.
- Is free of common allergens. All strains are grown on a dairy-free, soy-free, non-GMO vegetarian culture.
In other words, we intentionally avoided the strains your body is not ready to assimilate when you're out of balance. We picked the strains that work for you, not against you. We thought about you, every step of the way!
Great value for your money
Many people see the $100 price tag of the GutPro® Powder and question the cost. But please keep in mind, because GutPro® is ultra premium, ultra clean and therefore, ultra concentrated, you only need a teeny, tiny amount per serving; and the bottle will last you a long time — roughly eight to 12 months, depending on dosage.
When you consider the quality ingredients we use in our special formula as well as the dosing mentioned above, you will find that GutPro® is actually super cost-effective:
At the standard dose, a one-month supply costs under $8.
This is less than most store-bought probiotics and less than half the price of the mass produced "premium" brands.
Here’s what one of our many happy customers has to say:
“I have tried more than a few brands and I always come back to GutPro®. The best analogy I can think of is that it's like comparing $400 shoes to $10 shoes. There is just a world of difference in comfort and quality. With a child with many food intolerances and allergies and another with PDD-NOS, it really helps me that this has no fillers and everyone in the family can take it together.”
- Valerie K.
Last but not least, according to the practitioners
“As a practitioner I have tried many probiotic supplements with my clients over the years but was always concerned about additives and fillers as well as the streptococcus and acidophilus strains which never seemed to agree with my more sensitive ASD/GAPS clients. So imagine my delight when I first came across GutPro® made by Organic 3 and my wish had come true – clean, pure, d-lactate free, no unnecessary strains, no fillers and a concentrated formula which can be used by the whole family and is the most cost effective probiotic I’ve been able to find. Many happy clients later I can highly recommend it!

“We use GutPro® as our multi-strain probiotic of choice for the majority of our clients. With extensive clinical evidence we’ve found it to be gentle upon entry for building the beneficial flora in the gut as well as conducive to therapeutic titration. Bottom line is it works! Even for those with the most sensitive or compromised systems. And personally, it’s my favorite probiotic to support both my own and my family’s health.”

“GutPro® is changing the lives of each and every one of my clients daily. Not all probiotics are the same, quality really matters here. I have researched and used almost every available probiotic with little to no progressive results, until I discovered GutPro®. Taking even one antibiotic can greatly shrink your healthy, beneficial immune system fighting bacteria and give the pathogenic bacteria a chance to proliferate and create a whole host of imbalances. Since using GutPro® I am seeing cases where deep cellular viral, bacterial, allergies, sensitivities, mood and behavior concerns greatly improving and in many cases, resulting in full correction of the imbalance.
As a Naturopath, I use GutPro® myself and have seen amazing health improvements. I would not have the thriving wellness practice I have today without using GutPro® to help facilitate my clients in their healing, rebuilding and repairing process. Thank you Organic 3 for creating such a clean, bio available essential healing tool!”
