Renew Life Formulas Inc is a well established company based in Palm Springs Florida that specialises in digestive health supplements, fibre supplements, probiotics, and herbal cleaning products. The company was founded in 1997, but today is a subsidiary of The Clorex Company best known for a vast range of household brands mainly associated with cleaning.
Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake is a good quality protein and fibre supplement, that may help you lose weight if you use it correctly. The probiotic formula may suit you if you have digestive issues, but in truth most medical opinion is that probiotics are not necessary to take unless you have a digestive problem. That said some customers are pleased with this supplement, but there is undoubtedly something going on regarding the flavours which many people find disgusting. Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake is safe for most people, but despite the impressive ingredients profile you might find you don’t notice much difference to your overall health by using it.
Potential side effects may include; stomach discomfort, gas, and bloating.
Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake is expensive, but because it is on sale from numerous outlets you may be able to shop around a little on price. In addition it comes packaged in various sizes so if you wanted to use only occasionally such as for the probiotic effect, you could find some cheaper options.
1 x 14.5 oz tub of chocolate flavour provides enough for 10 servings costs $44.99 on Amazon and $60.99 on Amazon USA.
The vanilla flavour looks a little cheaper. We found the 10 serving tub on sale for around $29.00.
You can also buy individual serving packs. A pack of 7 individual sachets in vanilla or chocolate flavour costs around $24.00.
UK customers can buy a package of 7 sachets in chocolate flavour for £27.93 via Amazon UK, plus US postage costs.
Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake is unusual because in our opinion this supplement does too much, and so many of its purposes will not be really necessary to most users.
If you are trying to lose weight by a protein shake, this one contains adequate protein plus fibre, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and in our opinion will work as described if you use it correctly. But do you also need to dose yourself with probiotics and prebiotics as well? Medical opinion is that probiotics may be effective as a short term treatment for GI issues, but do not need to be taken every day like vitamins.
And if you are looking for a probiotic, do you really need all the protein and other ingredients in this supplement?
Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake may suit you if you tick all of these boxes, but otherwise we cannot see much point to it. In addition it is expensive and the flavour is a divisive issue. Even customers who like this Shake struggled with the flavour, and many had to add other ingredients to make it more palatable.
Let’s cut to the chase, Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake is undoubtedly a good quality and safe supplement, but in our opinion it is over engineered for most customers’ requirements and just too expensive as a result. Therefore we do not recommend Renew Life Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake to our readers.

First up Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake is a high fibre protein shake. It delivers 20 g of protein per serving, so if you are looking to build muscle you could drink before or after a workout. Alternatively you could use the drink as a meal replacement, or to prevent hunger pangs when on a weight loss diet. Each serving contains just 140 calories when combined with water, so although it is not calorie free you undoubtedly get a lot of value for calories if you do use it as a snack. Flavours include Chocolate, Vanilla, or Plain.
The protein fibre blend looks good for health. The protein is provided by pea protein so has a good amino acid spectrum and the fibre rich ingredients include acacia fibre, hemp seed, and flax which will help digestion as well as cause feelings of fullness. Fibres help maintain blood sugar levels, and have numerous proven health benefits including a prebiotic function.
Equally important to this supplement is the Digestive Support Blend, which contains a probiotic blend called Ultimate Flora.
Ultimate Flora is Renew Life’s own probiotic blend and is available in many Renew Life supplements. Ultimate Flora is comprised of 10 billion live probiotic cultures, and is composed of various Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains. It also contains additional digestive enzymes which help the body break down the molecules in nutrients, so they can be fully absorbed.
Although many people think of probiotics as being all the same, there are thousands of different strains which all have different properties and functions.
Mix and drink any time.
Probiotics simply means good bacteria and the human body naturally contains trillions of these tiny organisms, all of which have different functions in the body, particularly in the digestive process. When the natural balance of this flora is depleted as the result of medication, illness, or simply an unhealthy over processed diet, it will cause digestive side effects such as gas, nausea, fatigue, and bloating.
Clinical research is looking into the use of probiotics for numerous medical conditions, but as yet this is unproven. However these days most health experts agree that probiotics can be useful for gastrointestinal disorders, and that probiotic supplements that are closest to the probiotics contained in the body are the most effective.
Prebiotics are simply the “food” that the probiotics need in order to grow and flourish and according to the product information, these are present in the fibre content.
Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake also has an extensive profile of vitamins, minerals, and an array of fruit and veg extracts which is delivered in the proprietary antioxidant blend. All these are organic and include cherry, broccoli, raspberry, and kale extracts. Antioxidants are important for health, and we like that the extracts used here are all derived from organic sources.

According to the product information,
“Renew Life Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake is a USDA Certified Organic, plant-based, grain-free, high-protein and fiber shake that combines healthy nutrients into a tasty, satisfying, and convenient drink mix to enjoy anytime!”
The purposes are outlined,
“It helps build muscle, curbs your appetite, and supports healthy digestion and gut balance—with no gluten, dairy, added sugar, preservatives, or artificial ingredients.”
The key points are as follows:
We think it probably will work to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Many people are turning to shakes for weight loss and muscle building and they can be effective. We like that this supplement contains vitamins, minerals and the antioxidant formula so you should get a boost to health if you use this supplement to support a healthy diet. It is important to remember with any health product that it only helps your diet and should not be used as a replacement.
The whole area of probiotics is harder to define. If you have issues with your digestion and suffer from GI symptoms, probiotics may be effective at replacing some gut flora that has been depleted by antibiotics or similar. Do you really need to take them every day? There is no real evidence that you should take probiotics on a regular basis if you do not have GI symptoms.
According to Lynne McFarland, an associate professor at the University of Washington Medical Center speaking in an interview with the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI),
“One of the biggest misconceptions about probiotics is that you should be taking them daily like multivitamins. If you don’t have any reason to think there’s something wrong with your digestive system, a probiotic probably isn’t going to do much for you.” Source
Each serving is equal to 1 x 38g scoop.

Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake looks pretty safe, but some users may experience side effects. These may include:
You should not take any probiotics if you suffer from a weakened immune system, as they could introduce infection into your system
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Seek medical advice before use if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication. Probiotics are not always suitable for people with a weakened immune system such as the elderly, people getting over serious illness, surgery, or chemotherapy. Always ask your doctor first.
Renew Life Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake is a well known product, and many customers have left reviews on Amazon alone. There is a wide range of opinion.
There have been numerous complaints about the flavour.
All protein shakes I’ve tried taste bad but this is by far the worst tasting drink I’ve had, it’s not undrinkable but it’s certainly not good….
Gross!!! Seriously i couldn’t have got prepared for this horrid taste nothing like any other shake i have ever tasted
This tastes awful and has a weird powdery texture. Avoid at all costs…
Not everyone feels the same;
Love this product. It really does help with my digestion and is super good if I want to skip the meal.
Some customers have tweaked the flavour with other ingredients,
This tastes great with unsweetened almond milk and cold brewed coffee. It is not chalky at all and blends well and easily!
Some customers report weight loss such as this lady,
I started using it in June. So far I have lost 15lbs. I am 51 I’ve always been thin. Between turning 50 to 51 I had gained 31 lbs. I drink a shake ever morning. I blend the shake in my bullet, with 1/2 a frozen banana, almond milk and the skin gut fiber. Skinny gut makes me fill full almost all day.
Overall most customer feedback is positive.
