GUT MATRIX™ postbiotics are made in Australia using a trade secret process.

A healthy intestinal microbiome can support healthy digestion and utilization of nutrients. A healthy microbiome feeds on the foods you eat and creates “postbiotic” compounds that can contribute to some of the benefits of a healthy gut flora and a healthy diet.

Fermented foods also create postbiotics as the probiotics feed on the prebiotic foods to create postbiotic compounds.

What are Postbiotics?

Postbiotics are the substances made by probiotic organisms through the digestion of prebiotics.

Postbiotic compounds include multiple types of acids and other compounds that deactivate the live probiotic organisms creating non-viable probiotic cells also known as paraprobiotics. Paraprobiotics have been nicknamed ghost and zombie probiotics as they are technically dead but active. The postbiotic matrix made through fermentation contains prebiotics, probiotics, postbiotics and paraprobiotics.

More science is pointing toward postbiotic compounds to explain how a healthy diet including fermented foods, and a healthy and varied microbiome contribute to good health.

Everyone has a unique microbiome. Our different ratios and total number of organisms that live inside us vary as much as our diet and lifestyle varies. This is why some people can digest and tolerate foods better than others, because some people’s microbiomes contain a certain profile of probiotics creating the right combinations of postbiotic compounds to help digest the food.

The probiotic organisms in our microbiome make postbiotics from our prebiotic fibre and foods.

A postbiotic matrix contains paraprobiotics (inactivated non-viable probiotic cells) and other substances that may help to maintain good gut health, aid in digestion and the breakdown of food antinutrients to help liberate more nutrients from food.

Fermented foods sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, yoghurt, kefir, traditional pickles, and preserved meats are all examples of foods containing probiotic, prebiotic, paraprobiotics and other postbiotic compounds. The postbiotic matrix in these foods can help maintain a healthy diverse microbiome.


The trade secret GUT MATRIX™ process can create a specific matrix of prebiotics, probiotics (live and non-viable deactivated cells) and postbiotics customised to support a healthy gut microbiome and aid digestion for the target nutrient.
