Product review: Mojo gut shots

Mojo gut shots are a new non-dairy probiotic product by one of the most popular Australian kombucha makers. Like other fermented foods, these shots may help improve gut health.

Mojo gut shots

Think of these shots as a mini-version of kombucha (fermented tea) enriched with probiotics (beneficial bacteria). They are dairy-free and low in sugar. Mojo gut shots can be taken on their own or added to smoothies, etc.

Ingredients

  • Ginger Spice: Organic kombucha (walter, sugar, tea, kombucha culture), ginger juice (14%), probiotic (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086)
  • Berrytown: Organic kombucha (walter, sugar, tea, kombucha culture), berry puree (raspberry, blueberry, strawberry) (7.4%), probiotic (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086)

The packaging indicates the probiotic culture count is 1 billion CFUs at the time of bottling.

Taste test

Not surprisingly, Mojo gut shots taste exactly like their kombucha. Because this is not a dairy-based product, it is easier to get it all out of the little bottle.

Summary and recommendations

There is no consensus regarding the optimal probiotics for gut health and it is likely that what works for you depends on your individual makeup and circumstances. For that reason, it is perhaps a good idea to get a variety of probiotic-containing foods in your diet. If you don’t eat dairy, Mojo gut shots might be a good option for you.
