GetGutsy Study

Probiotics and Health in Non-Pregnant Females

A Randomized Controlled Trial


We want to see if probiotics (good bacteria), taken every day in a capsule, can improve markers of metabolic health.

To control for any changes that may occur during the study period, participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. One group will receive placebo capsules for the duration of the study (these will be identical to the other capsules, but will not contain any probiotic). The other group will receive probiotic capsules for the duration of the study. Importantly, neither participants nor the researchers will know which group is taking probiotic or placebo until after the study is completed. 

We ask you to:

  • Take 1 capsule every day for 12 weeks
  • Avoid consuming probiotic-containing foods during the study period

Benefits of taking part:
