GUTSY Digestive Health Kits include four herbal supplements: Haritaki, Phyllanthus niruri, Cistanche, and Rosa rugosa (Rose Hips).
Some people have chronic digestive issues, while others have periodic flare-ups. Over time, common digestive problems can lead to more serious issues such as diverticulosis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and hemorrhoids.
Between family gatherings, holiday parties, and fewer opportunities to exercise outdoors, it’s probably no big surprise that many people have more trouble with digestive issues during the fall and winter months.
To improve digestion, it’s important to eat reasonable amounts of food on a regular schedule. Eating meals around the same time each day helps your body digest food properly. When you eat at inconsistent times or overeat, your stomach has to work too hard to digest food, which can lead to acid indigestion, sour stomach, heartburn, and bloating. Hydration is also essential to your digestive health.
Digestive Health Kits
You can also support efficient and healthy digestion by consuming healthy, all-natural herbal extracts that support digestive health. Four of the herbal extracts that show exceptional potential as digestive health supplements include Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), Phyllanthus niruri, Cistanche tubulosa, and Rosa rugosa (Rose Hips).
Many studies suggest that these supplements are among the most promising digestive health supplements in the world, which is why we sell each of them individually in our online store. We also sell GUTSY Digestive Health Kits, which contain all four extracts. The four extracts are individually packaged so you can try them together or choose to use them separately.
This proprietary collection of herbal extracts is designed to:
- Support healthy liver function
- Provide intestinal mucosa and motility support
- Protect against free radical damage
- Provide healthy anti-inflammation support
- Support healthy digestive function
- Promote healthy gut microbiota
Digestive Health Supplements in GUTSY Kits
The herbal extracts in GUTSY Digestive Health Kits include Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), Phyllanthus niruri, Cistanche tubulosa, and Rosa rugosa (Rose Hips). Here, I’ll provide more information about each of these herbal supplements, along with links where you can find additional information.
HARITAKI: Haritaki has long been used in Ayurvedic practice to address digestive disorders, irregular fevers, constipation, flatulence, ulcers, vomiting, colic, and hemorrhoids. It may also help with other gastrointestinal ailments such as ascites, enlargement of the liver or spleen, worms, colitis, and food poisoning.
Haritaki supports healthy digestion and the natural removal of toxins. It has nootropic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as antibacterial, antiviral, and biofilm-breaking properties. By supporting the natural removal of toxins and improving digestion, Haritaki may help with metabolic syndromes, improve energy, and reduce hypertension, thus supporting heart health, along with overall health and wellness.
In addition, Haritaki also contains properties that have the potential to improve brain health. A study published in Advances in Pharmacological and Pharmaceutical Sciences says that Haritaki extract and its constituents have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that may support for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

PHYLLANTHUS NIRURI: Phyllanthus niruri is one of the world’s best digestive health supplements. It has 100+ bioactive compounds. Best known for helping to eliminate kidney stones and gall stones, it’s also used to help the immune and lymphatic systems combat viruses and bacteria, support the digestive system and renal system, and reduce pancreatic stress.
Substantial research has affirmed the liver-healing properties and positive hepatoprotective effects of Phyllanthus niruri herbal tea and herbal extract. By supporting healthy liver function, Phyllanthus can support the body’s healthy cortisol metabolism, modulating the negative effects of “the stress hormone.”
Phyllanthus niruri also supports the liver in its production of bile, which can help the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K. Essentially, everything you put in your body eventually goes through the liver’s security checkpoint. Rather than start a new fad diet, consider ways to support efficient liver filtration. A cup of Phyllanthus niruri herbal tea a day can go a long way toward protecting your liver and supporting digestive health. A good place to start is with the Phyllanthus FAQ.
CISTANCHE TUBULOSA: A recent study in Frontiers in Pharmacology suggests Cistanche tubulosa is a digestive health supplement that demonstrates antidepressant-like effects on chronic stress. The study concluded that Cistanche “is a potential treatment for depressive symptoms by restoring homeostasis of gut microbiota for microbiota–gut–brain axis disorders, opening new avenues in the field of neuropsychopharmacology.”
Other research shows Cistanche has significant neuroprotective properties and may enhance mitochondrial function and antioxidant capacity, which may improve longevity and endurance and reduce fatigue.
A study published in Frontiers in Pharmacology calls Cistanche “One of the Best Pharmaceutical Gifts of Traditional Chinese Medicine,” highlighting its bio-activities, including anti-oxidation, neuroprotection, and anti-aging. The study notes that it has traditionally been used to enhance “immunity, sexual health, antioxidation, and neuroprotection. … [Its uses] have evolved over nearly 2,000 years, and the demand for Herba Cistanche has grown rapidly in recent years.” A good place to start is with the Cistanche FAQ.
ROSA RUGOSA: A study published in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry indicates that Rosa rugosa “showed selective antibacterial activities against intestinal and pathogenic bacteria, and the selectivity resembled that of prebiotics such as oligosaccharides and dietary fiber.” In short, Rosa rugosa is a digestive health supplement that may inhibit bad bacteria while supporting the friendly gut microbiome.
Rosa rugosa, a deciduous shrub of the genus Rosa, has been widely used to treat stomach aches, diarrhea, pain, and chronic inflammatory disease in eastern Asia. Rosa rugosa may also support health issues related to liver-qi stagnation, induced tightness and fullness sensation in chest, and abdominal fullness and distention.
In addition, Rosa rugosa is known the world round for its antioxidant, anti-inflammation, and anti-aging properties, along with its high levels of vitamin C. A good place to start is with the Rosa rugosa FAQ.
Haritaki, Phyllanthus niruri, Cistanche, and Rosa rugosa are all-natural digestive health supplements that have the potential to optimize digestive health. GUTSY Digestive Health Kits include a proprietary collection of all four supplements in individual packets so you can choose how best to support your digestive health.
Suggested Usage: Combine each pack. Stir the mixture after each addition to blend well. Mix 1/2 teaspoon of the combined extracts into hot water or cold fruit juice. Enjoy in the morning before eating. If desired, have a second serving prior to bed. Alternatively, you can try one herbal extract at a time to determine which extracts are best for your particular needs.
