Meet our founder

Oli Ghazala

Oli has suffered from severe acid reflux and indigestion for the past five years. Now in his early thirties, Oli has tried all the leading brands and more recently he has been taking pharmaceuticals everyday.

gut-smart is a result of Oli wanting to find long term natural solutions and by working with accomplished medical herbalist and product developer Pamela Spence MNIMH, Oli is delighted that the first gut-smart products are being launched this year.
