An important message from Acutia

An internal startup that leveraged Alltech’s more than 40 years of nutrition innovation, Acutia was fueled by the promise and possibilities of human health benefits. It was one of innumerable startups that were attracted to the abundant potential of the human health supplement market, bolstered by the trends of an aging population and greater interest in well-being. It is a hot — and crowded — market.

After a thorough review of the Acutia business and the investment required to move from a successful launch to sustained growth in this market, Alltech has decided to wind down its human health venture and focus on its core animal health and nutrition and crop science businesses. Nikki Putnam Badding stepped down as Acutia’s director on March 29 to open a new chapter in her professional career, including the establishment of a consultancy firm. Alltech will continue collaborating with Nikki on several projects.

Remaining Acutia inventory will be sold at through the end of September 2024. As we move forward, Alltech will look for more ways to continue to support the exciting science that inspired the Acutia business.

Thank you for supporting Acutia. We wish you well in your pursuit of sustainable wellness.

How Acutia Gut Health Supports
Digestive Comfort and Overall Wellness
Everybody – and every body – deserves to feel good and live well. Acutia Gut Health works with your microbiome to help ease digestive upset quickly and improve gut health over time.
Supports overall digestive and colon health +-

Acutia Gut Health combines the synergistic power of a prebiotic, a postbiotic and L-glutamine for benefits that begin working the first day you take it.

Promotes a healthy bacterial balance +-

The hundreds of species of bacteria comprising the gut microbiome carry out essential functions that support our overall health. The prebiotic xylooligosaccharides (XOS) found in Acutia Gut Health promote the growth of healthy bacteria, while the postbiotic Lactobacillus LB cells adhere to the gut lining, supporting a healthy bacterial balance in the digestive system.

Helps relieve digestive upset +-

Acutia Gut Health works quickly to help calm digestive upset, reduce occasional bloating, promote regularity and maintain good gut health over time.

Helps support a healthy gut barrier and gut immunity +-

Lactobacillus LB works with your microbiome to strengthen the gut lining and provide a barrier against pathogens while supporting your body’s natural immune response.

Active Ingredients

L-glutamine is an amino acid with a broad spectrum of benefits. Within the digestive system, L-glutamine is known to help strengthen and maintain the integrity of the intestinal barrier, which prevents substances such as harmful bacteria, toxins and undigested food particles from entering the bloodstream and causing inflammation.

Lactobacillus LB

The hundreds of species of bacteria comprising the gut microbiome all carry out essential functions that support our overall health. Postbiotic Lactobacillus LB cells adhere to the gut lining, supporting a healthy bacterial balance in the digestive system. Working within your microbiome, Lactobacillus LB fortifies the gut lining and provides a barrier against pathogens, supporting your body’s natural immune responses. We selected our postbiotic source specifically for its heat-stabilized cells, which provide quick and efficacious digestive health benefits that begin working on the first day.

Xylooligosaccharides (XOS)

The prebiotic xylooligosaccharides (XOS) promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon, help maintain healthy colonic microflora, and increase the number of Bifidobacteria, which are essential to good digestive health. The XOS source found in Acutia Gut Health has been selected for its ability to provide significant health benefits in a low dose with minimal gastrointestinal side effects.
