(4 Pillars of Health)
GutRightTM is here because our health has declined;
Globally our health has declined significantly in the last 50 years with the following epidemics;
- Diabetes type 2, Metabolic syndrome/Insulin resistant syndrome and Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Anxiety and depression
- Gut problems – Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) / Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) / Small Intestine Bowel Overgrowth (SIBO) / Fermentable Oligo- Di- and Monosaccharides and Polyols (FODMAP) / indigestion / Reflux (GORD)
- Immune dysregulation – allergies, resistant infections, and autoimmunity
- Cardiovascular disease
But, we have hardly changed in that time!
That is not enough time for us to have evolved new genes and new genetic material across our species to explain our bad health. It is NOT human genetic polymorphisms and gene defects.
Our total calories in versus calories out have not changed enough to explain the above epidemics.
So, what has changed?
Our gut bugs have changed because our food and eating has changed.
We have two genomes, one inherited from our parents and the other acquired from our microbiome. Our inherited genome from our parents takes so many generations to change. Mathematical models suggest we have the ability to change 0.05% of our genetic material over 100,000 years. On average, in DNA sequence, each human is 99.5% similar to any other human. While our inherited genome hardly changes if at all during our lifetime, the microbiome genome is extremely dynamic and can be constantly changing, even from night and day. The human gut microbiome accounts for more than 5 million different genes that is 100 x the number of genes we possess. Some of the genes encoded by the human core microbiome build systems required for their human host survival, but not present in our human genome.
Our gut microbiota consists of more than 10 trillion microbial cells, which is about 10X the number of our own cells making up about 1–2 kg of our body weight. Our gut bugs play a very active role in our energy metabolism and immune and inflammatory systems.
There is a common link between the above epidemics, a particular change in our gut flora driving these diseases. There are more than 1000 microbial strains but 90% of the biomass consists of firmicutes and bacteroidetes. The ratios between the firmicutes and bacteroidetes will determine your metabolic rate and the degree of inflammation your body experiences and this can be the difference between winning and losing in life.
Too many “firmicute” bacteria
Firmicutes are sugar feeders that create inflammation and slow our metabolism
Not enough “bacteroidetes” bacteria
Bacteroidetes bacteria are fat feeders that block inflammation and boost our metabolism
This imbalance has been discovered in humans and in animal models.
Studies are showing a reduction in Bacteroidetes together with a proportional increase in the Firmicutes in obese mice, compared with their controls, when consuming exactly the same diet and performing the same exercise. Showing that subjects with obesity and metabolic syndrome and those with more severe complications of obesity have the greatest imbalance in their gut microbiota.
Further testing has revealed a reduced abundance of intestinal Bacteroidetes and an increased abundance of Firmicutes was also observed in obese humans.
The figure below shows the changing microbiome in lean subjects to obese subjects. As the Body Mass Index (BMI) increases indicating an increase in body weight to obesity, the relative abundance of firmicutes compared to bacteroidetes in the gut microbiota continues to rise.
Figure 1 the relative abundance of the major microbial phyla in different BMI categories (a BMI < 18.5, b BMI 18.5–24.9, c BMI 25–29.9 and d BMI ≥30)
A study conducted in obese and lean twins also showed that Firmicutes were dominant in the obese twins and that Bacteroidetes were dominant in the lean twins. They also observed that the abundant bacteroidetes enhances the genes linked to carbohydrate metabolism. Meaning the bacteroidetes enhanced the lean subject’s ability to burn carbohydrate as fuel instead of storing as fat.
It is not us that is changing. Our gut bugs are changing as our food changes; we are not adapting fast enough. Hence, the current health crisis.
What made our gut bugs change?
Our eating has changed & our food has changed
Our food has changed due to farming techniques, harvesting, storage and food preparation techniques along with our food choices and purchases.
Per gram of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and grains we now have
- More sugar
- Less fiber
- Less antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal compounds from fiber, pulp, skins, peels, and seeds
- Plus “added” Round-up
- Less micronutrients
We eat a “balanced” diet but not a varied diet
We eat the same food all year round and we don’t eat with seasons. In nature, we would cycle between different fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and grains through the seasons. Eating what is fresh and available for the season and then having months off while we wait for that season return. We have been taught to have a balanced diet by balancing our food groups in each meal or day but we tend to select the same foods, our favorite foods to consume most days, all year round.
We do not have regular intermittent fasting. In nature we go through phases of feast and famine, our metabolism learns to adapt to changing ratios of protein, carbohydrates, and fats and eating at different times of the day.
Without this variation and change, there is a constant food supply for certain microorganisms and deficiencies of favorite foods for other microbes and that will fuel an overgrowth of some and deficiencies of others. We need variety.
So, how do we fix it?
No. we have too many bugs and most probiotic supplements are actually firmicutes e.g. lactobacillus is a firmicute! Using probiotics to fix overgrowth of bad bugs is like throwing grass seeds at weeds. They do not get rid of established bad bugs and usually just add more firmicutes.
No. We already have too much sugar in our food, they are already eating that. Why add a capsule more? Prebiotics are just food for bugs, do you want to feed your weeds? If probiotics are like throwing grass seeds at weeds than prebiotics are like throwing fertilizer on weeds.
No. that just combines the above 2 points.
ModbioticTM can reduce the bad firmicutes and increase the good bacteroidetes.
ModbioticTM includes antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial compounds such as polyphenols, polysaccharides, glucans and other compounds that control growth and ratios of gut flora. ModbioticTM can reduce “bad” bugs and increase “good” bugs.
ModbioticTM contains ingredients found in the skin, peel, seeds, shoots, outer leaves, pulp and fiber of our foods but they have disappeared.
Recent independent research shows supplementation with polyphenols in obese individuals along with a probiotic restricted diet; including low amounts of probiotic-rich foodstuffs like yogurt, soy yogurt, or as probiotic supplements are the most effective way to change the gut microbiome to correct obesity.
You can replace these missing nutrients by supplementing with GUTRIGHT TM – MODBIOTIC ™
What is “ModbioticTM”?
ModbioticTM is a unique complex of polyphenols, polysaccharides, glucans, lectins and other compounds that modulate microbes toward an anti-inflammatory and anti-obesity profile through combinations of antibacterial, antifungal and antiparasitic actions that reduce excessive firmicutes and increase deficient bacteroidetes.
GUTRIGHT™ by ATP Science is an evolutionary step in healthcare using all of the most recent scientific findings and discoveries and a step back in time to before modern man and science intervened with nature’s plan. After hundreds of years of research into the gut and its governing role over so many other systems in the human body and overall health, we have gone full circle to realize the man’s best efforts and genius does not come close to the intricacies of synergy and the intelligence that nature possesses.
The good news is that we do not need a time machine. It is not too late. We can compensate and replace the missing modbiotic compounds by fortifying our diets with ATP Science GUTRIGHT™ MODBIOTIC™
What will GUTRIGHTTM do for me?
- Will modulate gut bug ratios
- Dysbiosis, SIBO, leaky gut wall, allergies, and intolerances
- Support immune
- Aid liver and detoxification pathways
- Reduce inflammation
- Reduce insulin resistance
- Support healthy metabolism
- Prevent and correct fatigue disorders
- Eliminate brain fog and aid mental clarity
- Improve physical and mental performance
- Correct firmicute: bacteroidetes (kill of excess firmicute and increase deficient bacteroidetes)
- Kill off candida (yeasts, fungi, and moulds)
- Displace parasites
ModbioticTM modifies ratios of microorganisms in your gut by reducing the excessive organisms that have overgrown and supporting the deficient strains to grow.
High doses of ModbioticTM can be used in the short term to purge the overgrowth and lower doses have a more modulating effect over a longer period of time to maintain the healthier ratios.
Short term kickstart
Do this to start your GUTRIGHTTM journey or again after events that may disrupt your healthy balance of gut flora for example after antibiotics, food poisoning, colds, cases of flu or allergies, bad eating and binging.
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHTTM mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAYTM protein powder or honey 3 times daily with meals for 10 days whilst following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
What to expect:
This will be directly proportional to what is living inside you and what it smells and sounds like as it leaves you.
The Herxheimer reaction is a die-off reaction, the more bad bugs you have to kill the more toxins are released, some people may experience burping, farting, gurgling, nausea.
This product is not a laxative style purgative. It will not induce explosive diarrhea or leakage. The purging effect comes from the removal of excessive organisms and how they try to fight back.
Days 1 to 3:
In most cases, the first 3 days will see a die-off of the excessive microbes and removal of old waste and this will build up a certain amount of gases and short chain fatty acids and putrefied and degraded material being eliminated in the stool. By day 3 you may suspect that something has died inside of you or possibly something dead was put inside you while you were sleeping.
Common feedback at this point;
“that wasn’t me, that doesn’t smell like one of mine”
“that was the dog”
“don’t go in that room”
Days 3 to 7:
At this point, the amount of dead microbes in your stool is significantly increasing adding to the size and volume of fecal matter created. The changing mucosa and short chain fatty acids and fiber in stools may also be increasing adding to the bulk of the stool and improving the bowel as a muscle.
At this point and typically peaking on day 5; you are making lots of poop. You may do lots of pooping on these days but form should be good and comfortable, the smell should be starting to improve and on day 5 expect the poop of 5 people to be leaving you.
Common feedback at this point is;
“where is my phone I need something to read”
“I need to poop again”
“holy dunny choker, I need a wire coat hanger and multiple flushing”
“why does it take so long for the toilet to refill to flush again?”
Days 7 to 10:
Most of the die-off has occurred, most of the elimination of excessive waste has been purged. Modulating strains and ratios are starting to control populations. Guts are feeling right.
You are now ready to maintain
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHTTM mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAYTM protein powder or honey daily. (At night is best as normal transit time will be about 10 hours which will mean you are regular each morning but everyone can work out their own way)
The 4 Pillars of Health – #01: GutRightTM.
There is a hierarchy of health. Before you can force things to change you must first ensure that change is possible by building a solid base foundation to work from. An adequate supply of essential nutrients and the ability to digest, absorb and utilize these nutrients are the basis of our 4 pillars of health.
Once we ensure we are capable of achieving and maintaining health with the 4 pillars we can force change with other dynamic formulations used as short-term tools to correct imbalances.
#01 – GUTRIGHTTM: Get your GUTRIGHTTM first. Your gut will control your appetite, digestion, creation and absorption of nutrients. It is your first line of defence and the home of your immune system; the main passage for detoxification and elimination of toxins and waste. The gut is the home of your microbiome and your second brain and it is via the gut that we are capable of achieving health. GUTRIGHTTM is a MODBIOTICTM that works by controlling your microbiome and all aspects of gut health.
#02 – MULTIFOODTM +: is plant-based water and fat-soluble nutrients. By standardising plant matter to yield specific amounts of vitamins it is possible to supply all of the activated forms along with their cofactors naturally.
#03 – coming soon
#04 – coming soon

Q. Can I take this in conjunction with other products from the range?
A. Yes you can most definitely, all of our product range minus the infrared support the gutright during the 10 day protocol so keep them in if you like.
Q. What protein sources can you have during the 10 days?
A. You want to avoid dairy based proteins and also pea proteins whilst on the 10 days. These can be added back in afterwards if need be.
Q. Is gutright organic?
Q. Can you use gutright if you following regimes designed for FODMAP and SIBO?
A.This is a tricky one as the gutright wasn’t designed to support these regimes specifically but those that have use it in conjunction with these dietary requirements based on gut health have been happy with the results.
Q. Can this cause eczema to worsen during the 10 days?
A. If the eczema is linked with a gut imbalance and the bug or fungus that is causing the eczema is dying off, it will very likely make haste and rapidly try to expand its colonization in order to survive. Those that have seen the Gutright through noticed that it tended to die off after the surge completely.
Q. What happens if I don’t get any side effects?
A. One thing that we all have in common is the fact that we are unique, especially our gut flora, so while one person may have a greater physical reaction than you, does not mean that the product is not working. there are so many important internal processes that it works on such as breaking down bio-films and cleaning up excess mucous. Some may have more subtle effects than others.
Q. Do I need to use antibiotics or probiotics during or afterwards?
A. Thankfully this does only target the firmicutes of the gut in terms of specific commensal flora so you aren’t bombing the lot. This means that it is unlikely you will need to replenish with probiotics, however if you know through tests that you are deficient in a particular strain, then you can add this in as an individual item in conjunction after the 10 days.
Q. Why aren’t I pooping? Why am I going to the bathroom less?
A. If, through excess inflammation the gut is producing more mucous in response; this can be seen as making you a more regular visitor. So, when lessening the inflammation and clearing up excess mucous from the GI Tract, you may become initially less regular. However around day 8-10 is when this begins to balance itself out again as your body finds its rhythm.
Q. What happens if I don’t follow the diet?
A. The specific carbohydrate diet is designed to assist with the initial 10 day process. This is the method preferred, and consists of removing complex carbohydrates out of the diet for 10 days. These complex sugars take a long time to break down and as such can make it through to digestion in the large intestine, which bugs love! By removing their food source and providing an imitation of complex molecule (polyphenols) the polyphenols are ingested and poison the bug we are targeting (Firmicutes). So it is important if you want the most out of your process. https://atpscience.com/the-specific-carbohydrate-diet-food-list-for-gut-health/
Q. Can children have this?
A. While we cannot provide specific dosage guidance or recommendation for use for anyone under the of 15 years, we can say that if under guidance of the health care professional, you can. Our team used around 1/4 of a scoop for their munchkins. Again, always work with your health care professional before making any changes for your current lifestyle.
