Published: 15 May 2023 | 5 min read

Just one daily scoop of this fibre blend, added to a breakfast or drink, is giving hundreds of IBS sufferers relief.

As seen in...

Surprisingly, 1-in-5 people in the UK will suffer with IBS at some stage in their life, according to BUPA UK.

Gut symptoms, like painful gas and bloating, are often really tricky to resolve, causing many to suffer through their daily lives.

But with a wave of new research, linking Short-Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) and human microbiota, new products are reaching the market.

At the forefront of these developments is Thomas Gurry, myota co-founder, and leading Human Fermentation Research Specialist at The University of Geneva, who has developed the world’s first precise fibre blend - all natural, FODMAP-friendly and completely tasteless.

What’s inside the world’s first patented fibre blend?


Partially hydrolysed guar gum (PHGG) is a prebiotic fibre derived from guar beans. PHGG promotes the growth of beneficial gut bacteria while minimising bloating and gas. It’s best known for its role in relieving constipation, diarrhoea, and bloating for those with sensitive tummies.

Wheat fibre

Wheat fibre comes from the cell walls of the wheat grain. It contains arabinoxylans that help create softer, bulkier stools that are easier to pass. Our wheat fibre is suitable for those with coeliac disease (certified gluten-free).

Oat fibre

Oat fibre comes from the outer shell of the oat grain. Oat contains both soluble and insoluble fibres, helping to improve constipation, abdominal pain and bloating. Oat fibre also contains beta-glucan, a powerhouse fibre with beneficial effects on blood cholesterol levels. Our oat fibre is suitable for those with coeliac disease (certified gluten-free).

Guar gum

Guar gum comes from the seed of the guar plant. It's a soluble and viscous (gel-forming) fibre that normalises the moisture content of stool, helping to absorb excess water in diarrhoea, and soften stools in constipation.



Restore gut balance. Suitable for sensitive stomachs

  • Target bloating, wind and constipation

    Improved bowel function means you’ll be more regular, less bloated and have less excessive gas. You’ll also experience up to 60% fewer bouts of diarrhoea & constipation.

  • Improved Digestion

    By repopulating and feeding the good bacteria in your gut, you’ll produce more beneficial fatty acids – the main source of energy for cells in your gut and the key to fighting indigestion.

  • A happy gut = a happier you

    Better gut performance will lead to the production of more serotonin, positively impacting your mood, sleep and appetite. You’ll feel less moody, anxious and deflated – and more able to manage your emotions.

  • Greater immunity and fewer food cravings

    Thanks to more beneficial gut bacteria, your immunity and capacity to fight the harmful bacteria that cause you to binge-eat processed and high sugar foods will increase.

Your burning questions, answered.

What's myota? 

Tailored fibre blends that improve your gut and overall health by helping your gut microbiome produce more short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Single fibre mixes only work on a small portion of the population – and every microbiome ferments fibre differently. That’s why we create specific fibre blends and test them on hundreds of microbiome samples. Making sure everyone’s gut can ferment our fibre to produce the right SCFAs for their health goals.

Who’s myota for?

Anyone who wants to improve their metabolic, immune or mental health, or soothe digestive problems like constipation, bloating and diarrhoea. myota provides benefits for all stages of life - for children who are fussy eaters, for those going through pregnancy, breastfeeding or menopause, or anyone who wants to optimise their health and longevity. For children under the age of 12, we recommend half a scoop (2-3g/day).

How do I use myota?

There are lots of ways to take your daily scoop. Add it to smoothies. Stir it into yoghurt. Sprinkle on your morning muesli. Add it to your morning coffee or tea. Our fibre comes as a flavourless powder so you can easily dissolve it into food, and hot or cold drinks.

How much and when should I take myota?

You can take your myota any time of the day or night, so choose whatever time works best for you and your daily routine. We recommend taking 10g (one scoop) of myota a day. You can start with this amount right away, or work up to it slowly (starting with half a scoop) to allow your body time to adjust. Constipation can be a sign that you have started with too much too soon, but this is easily adjusted by reducing your serving and drinking plenty of water.

What research is myota currently conducting?

myota’s scientists are continuously leading new research projects. At our lab in Switzerland, we perform rigorous testing of hundreds of types of fibre, including their fermentability in the gut, heat sensitivity, texture, taste, and ability to produce short-chain-fatty-acids in different people. We use this research to develop and refine our products, and to ensure our existing combinations continue to be as effective as possible. We are also conducting multiple clinical trials in the UK, both ourselves and in partnership with the NHS. We look forward to publishing the results of these in 2023.
