digestive health

There’s a lot, but most importantly, all Better Blends protein powders are certified low-FODMAP, which make them a great option for those living with IBS, IBD, SIBO, or other gut issues. Additionally, we use clean ingredients and tasty ones too, making these protein powders not just good on the gut, but delicious too.

Fiber is important for feeding your gut bacteria. The fiber we’ve included is gentle on most people’s guts, while still providing you with gut friendly probiotic benefits. Your gut bacteria will ferment these fibers, creating short chain fatty acids, like butyrate, which has been shown to help heal the gut lining.

Better Blends uses non-GMO and gluten-free Beta-Glucan Oat Fiber, Tapioca Starch, and Potato Starch.

MCT Oil helps the body digest foods more easily and improve nutrient absorption for those struggling with malabsorption. Furthermore, MCT Oil can help improve cognitive function!
