Supplements that Support Gut Health

Supplements that Support Gut Health

From digestive support to immune function, your gut plays many important roles in your body’s health. Certain supplements offer a convenient and effective way to support your gut health and promote optimal digestion.

Let’s take a deep dive into the world of supplements that specifically target gut health, and explore their benefits along with the scientific evidence behind their effectiveness.

Whether you're seeking relief from digestive issues or looking to optimize your overall health, understanding the potential of gut health supplements can help you reach your wellness goals while helping you feel your best. 

Digestive Enzymes

Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes are like your body's little helpers, breaking down food into smaller, more easily digestible parts. As we age, the body’s production of digestive enzymes decreases, which can lead to digestive discomfort like bloating and gas along with poor nutrient absorption.1

Digestive enzyme supplements can help support the digestion process and in turn, help alleviate common gut issues. Naturelo's Digestive Enzymes offer a blend of 15 digestive enzymes that support optimal digestion for a wide range of food groups, including proteins, carbs, fats, sugars, dairy, raw vegetables, beans, grains, alcohol, and more.*


 ProbioticProbiotics are beneficial bacteria that naturally reside in your gut. They play an important role in maintaining your overall health by supporting digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune function.  

Probiotics work by restoring the balance of healthy bacteria, which can be disrupted by poor diet quality, stress, illness, and antibiotic use. By introducing these healthy bugs, probiotics help prevent the growth of unhealthy gut bacteria, help restore balance, and promote digestive health. 

In addition to gut health, probiotics may also support your immune system. Your gut is home to much of your immune system. In fact, your gut produces and controls your immune system cells. Research suggests that probiotics may promote the production of immune cells, like T cells, B cells, and natural killer cells, which all support a robust immune system.2

Naturelo's Probiotic supplement delivers a powerful 50 billion active cultures including 11 researched probiotic strains to help replenish your gut with friendly bacteria.*


Unlike probiotics, which are live microorganisms, prebiotics are essentially food for the probiotics already present in your gut, helping them thrive and multiply.  Much like probiotics, prebiotics help promote a balanced microbiome and support your gut health, including digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune function.3

Prebiotics are naturally found in certain foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. However, they are also available as supplements for those looking to boost their intake to help improve gut health.


Much like prebiotics, fiber is a type of carbohydrate found in plant-based foods that your body cannot digest. Instead, it passes through your digestive system, providing a wide range of health benefits. From helping to ease constipation to supporting healthy cholesterol levels, fiber promotes digestive health and overall well-being.4

Fiber-rich foods include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes. These foods not only provide essential nutrients but also contribute to feelings of fullness, making them ideal for weight management.

If you struggle to consume enough fiber through diet alone, there are a variety of fiber supplements to choose from. These supplements typically contain isolated forms of fiber, like psyllium husk or methylcellulose, which can be mixed with water or added to food to increase fiber intake. However, it's important to drink plenty of water when taking fiber supplements to prevent constipation and ensure optimal digestion.

The Bottom Line

From digestive enzymes to probiotics, there are a wide range of supplements that promote a healthy gut microbiome while supporting your overall well-being. Alongside a balanced diet including a variety of fiber-rich foods, gut health supplements can help support digestion, enhance nutrient absorption, and lay the foundation for optimal health from the inside out

Before taking any supplement, it’s important to talk with your healthcare provider to ensure it’s right for you.
