The World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022 (WGC2022) has today announced health and wellness brand, The Gut Stuff, as an official supplier.
The Gut Stuff was created in 2017 by twins Alana and Lisa, in an effort to empower people to understand more about their gut health and dispel myths about what it really means to be healthy – led by a team of scientists, nutritionists, dieticians and doctors.
The partnership will see The Gut Stuff provide 15,000 high fibre bars for the Championships in October to feed the WGC2022 workforce. The collaboration is aiming to promote happier and healthier lifestyles whether through sport, nutrition, or improved education around general wellbeing. The Gut Stuff exists as a B Corp®, joining a global community of businesses measuring social and environmental impact as a key indicator of success.
