Synogut is a gut health supplement sold on Amazon and on the brand’s website. The manufacturer claims that “this formula will change your life” and that it consists of natural ingredients.

But does Synogut contain ingredients shown in medical studies to improve gut health or are these just marketing claims? Does the supplement contain any questionable filler ingredients? What retailer sells it for the best price? And how do real users rate and describe the effects of Synogut?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more as we analyze the ingredients in Synogut based on medical studies to give our take on whether or not the supplement is likely to be effective for improving gut health.

We’ll share our concerns about ClickBank products (Synogut is a ClickBank product), explain what retailer sells Synogut for the best price, and feature real, unsponsored Synogut customer reviews.

Ingredient Analysis

Synogut ingredients on Amazon

The Synogut website does not include a full ingredients list or Supplement Facts label, which is a major red flag. The ingredients shown above are from the product’s Amazon listing.

While we will use the Amazon listing for our analysis, it’s important to note that this ingredient list does not match some of the ingredients mentioned on the Synogut website.

As shown below, Synogut’s website mentions ingredients like flaxseed, prune and bentonite clay, none of which are shown in the Amazon ingredient list:

Synogut ingredients on website

The Amazon listing is primarily composed of probiotics at a 40 billion colony-forming unit (CFU) dose. This is an effective dose, and probiotics have been shown in a medical review published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition to improve gut health, immune system response and improve bowel frequency.

Fructooligosaccharides are prebiotic ingredients that can feed healthy bacteria in the gut and are as important as probiotics to maintaining optimal gut health, as we documented in our review of another brand containing this ingredient called Seed probiotics.

There are no harmful or toxic filler ingredients which is a good sign, but two of the ingredients are spelled wrong (“rice flower” instead of “rice flour and “l-lucine” instead of “l-leucine”) which is a sign of a very low-quality brand.

Based on the Amazon list of ingredients, we do believe that Synogut can improve gut health, but we strongly advise consumers to be cautious about purchasing supplements from companies that fail to make their ingredients clear or have ingredient discrepancies between platforms.

Our Concerns About ClickBank Products

Synogut is promoted and marketed on an affiliate platform called ClickBank, as shown in the disclaimer above which is in the footer of the Synogut website.

As we discussed in our review of another ClickBank product called Alpilean, ClickBank allows website owners and marketers instant approval to promote products. This creates an incentive structure for people without any medical credentials or experience to make health claims about products that may not be accurate.

We generally consider brands on ClickBank to be low-quality, because a high-quality brand would want to source and pre-approve marketing partners. They would not be comfortable with just anyone recommending their products and potentially making specific health claims about their products.

A TikTok user named Kevin Schattovitz shows how easy it is below to start promoting Glucotrust on ClickBank:

@purewealthhustler Clickbank is a marketplace where you can find a ton of Affiliate Products. Digital products usually have higher commission rates than physical ones. You can find winning products in there but do your researching or even try out products before you promote. Promote with integrity! Here are the steps 1.

We haven’t come across one single ClickBank product that we would recommend in our hundreds of Illuminate Health reviews, and we advise consumers to be wary of any supplements sold on ClickBank. You can check if a supplement is sold on ClickBank by navigating to the footer of its website and checking for the ClickBank disclaimer.

Real, Unsponsored Synogut Customer Reviews

We consider Amazon to be a better resource for honest customer reviews than a brand’s website.

Synogut has been reviewed over 200 times on Amazon, with an average review rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.

The top positive review from a verified purchaser comes from a user named “Janet Watkins” who gives the supplement a 5-star rating and claims it reduced bowel urgency:

“Amazing how it worked for me. Had kept diarrhea for three years Every time I ate. It is corrected and rarely do I have to run to rest room after eating now. I’m going to stay on it another two months”

The top negative review from a verified purchaser is written by a user named “Nancy J. Dunn” who’s concerned about the ingredient discrepancy between the website and Amazon listing:

“i am spoiled with amazon prime and didn't read where this product is not returnable. i am stuck with a lie, this does not have the same ingredients as the synogut sold on the internet, it is unfair. you might as well just flush your money down the toilet than to think you bought something that would help with your constipation and bowel issues.”

Unfortunately, the vast majority of YouTube videos on Synogut are promotional, so we cannot find a single unsponsored review from a customer to feature.

Where to Get the Best Price

Here’s a price breakdown for Synogut at the time of publishing this article:

Walmart: $49.95 (link)

Brand website: $49 (link)

Amazon: $39.95 (link to Amazon listing)

Synogut is currently 18% cheaper on Amazon than on the brand’s website, but again we cannot confirm which is the better (or true) product due to the ingredient discrepancy.

Will Synogut Cause Side Effects?

Synogut doesn’t appear to have been studied in any clinical trials, so it’s impossible to say for certain whether or not the supplement will cause side effects.

However, we can make an educated guess based on its ingredients.

High doses of probiotics may cause gastrointestinal symptoms like gas and bloating according to a medical review published in the Microorganisms journal. The 40 billion CFU dose in Synogut is relatively high.

This suggests that especially in individuals with an unhealthy diet that’s low in fiber and natural probiotics, Synogut may cause intestinal distress.

To reduce the risk of side effects, it may be worthwhile to break the capsule and only use half or less of the powder within for the first use, just to make sure there isn’t a bad reaction.

There are no ingredients in Synogut that we identify as likely to cause side effects or potentially harmful for the average, healthy adult.

Conclusion

We do not currently recommend Synogut. While it may improve gut health because it contains an effective probiotic dose, we’re unclear on the full set of ingredients which is a consumer safety issue.

The ingredients listed on the product’s website and Amazon listing are totally different, and the website fails to even publish the full ingredient list and the associated ingredient doses.

Synogut is promoted on ClickBank, which is an affiliate marketplace that allows people with no health or medical background to promote health products. We believe that this incentive structure is suboptimal and that only low-quality brands would sign up for ClickBank. In all of the ClickBank products we’ve reviewed on Illuminate Health, there has not been one that we recommended.

We do not believe that Synogut is likely to cause side effects in most healthy adults, but its high probiotic dose may cause some intestinal discomfort for those with an unhealthy gut and poor diet.

For those intent on purchasing Synogut, the supplement is currently much cheaper on Amazon than on the brand’s website.
