What does Gusto mean?

Gusto is our personal philosophy that you deserve the choice, the possibility to live your life with more zest, more enthusiasm – with more gusto! However, this is much harder to do when you are uncomfortable, weary or feeling unwell. This is especially true on your daily journeys through life or on far away travels (whether for pleasure or business). None of your journeys should not stop you from feeling and being your best!

The Gusto “Kinetic System Solution” address both your symptoms but also the problems that caused them. We know of no other comprehensive product that does what Gusto can do.

What is Gusto to Go?

Gusto to Go is a new addition for any beverage. Even plain old water tastes great, but Gusto can make it great for you.

Gusto to Go is a mix of 19 natural ingredients that supports your digestion and your immunity. Simply add one small packet to any of your favorite daily beverages – to enhance them to matter. GTG is for more than just for uncomfortable digestive symptoms.

GTG is what we call our “Kinetic System Solution”. It addresses all the major parts of your digestive & immune systems to assist them to be balanced and work optimally. We designed Gusto to Go to help you become healthier (by supporting your immunity), to be more comfortable and have more natural energy (by supporting your digestive health).

Gusto to Go is not an energy drink. Yet, Gusto to Go enables your body to produce its normal and natural energy supplies that it needs. No energy drink on the market promotes and maintains your natural digestive rhythms and processes so that you can get all the nutrients from your foods.

Simply put, when you are out-of-balance, your absorption of necessary nutrients for every one of your 10-trillion body cells is stopped or greatly diminished. The “goodness” of your great diet can be wasted. You can get weak, sick, uncomfortable, out-of-sorts, brain-fogged and weary for no apparent reason. Gusto to Go proactively promotes and supports good digestive & immune health. It can restore and rebalance an already upset digestive system or weakened immune system. (All normally healthy digestive systems can get upset for a variety of reasons. This happens to everyone.)

Why should you care?

You’ve got certain hopes, dreams and desires. To reach them you need plenty of natural energy and to be well to enjoy the good things in life. Every journey we undertake can be stressful & disruptive. With Gusto to Go you can plan better for all your journeys.

People desire more control over how they feel. 60-70 million Americans have persistent digestive problems. 37% of Americans have an upset digestive system on any given day. 76% of travelers have had a trip marred by digestive distress of one type or another.

Gusto to Go will help get your core digestive system rebalanced and stay in balance. It is one of the smartest goals you can have because every good thing starts with your digestion and with your body’s defenses – the immune system.

Why do you need a choice?

Up until now you haven’t had a real choice like Gusto. You may drink several beverages a day. Do any of them contribute to your gusto? 99% of flavored water, water with vitamins, juices or energy drinks do not contribute to your gusto. They really don’t.

$240 billion is spent annually on vitamins and generally we can’t tell or feel if they make any difference. Gusto to Go makes any ordinary beverage into one that matters. One that just happens to also tune your digestion so you have all the health and energy to go live a life of unbridled gusto. You get control and the peace of mind that you are taking exceptional care of yourself while enjoying a refreshing beverage that makes a difference.

 

How does Gusto to Go work?

Gusto to Go helps resolve common digestive ailments such as heartburn, nausea, gas or bloating, indigestion, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea by promoting and maintaining all parts of a normally healthy digestive system. It accomplishes this by protecting and enhancing what each digestive system part naturally does. (For example, some ingredients work on or in the stomach. Others work in the small or large intestine, etc.)

Gusto to Go goes to the core issues of comfort and health by reestablishing the uptake of nutrients to feed all body cells, including your immune system. This promotes a general sense of wellness as well as natural energy. Why? Because everything starts with a balanced digestive system. Only a balanced system will be able to use, to absorb, all the great nutrients from your foods.

 

What is our vision?

Gusto to Go was designed to give you one less thing to worry about on your daily journeys through life or when traveling far and wide for fun or business. We exist to do our small part to help you experience a life with more gusto; more enthusiasm, more energy, enabled to meet your expectations and hopes. You deserve a life lived to the fullest.

Our name conveys our lofty expectations. We are passionate and care that you have every opportunity to experience more gusto in your life. You cannot do this well when you are unwell.

 

What is the biggest fear about travel?

Most people tell us their biggest fear about travel is getting sick. You want to feel healthy, energetic and comfortable, naturally and safely. You want to feel empowered and have more control. You certainly are not interested in having your plans upset by being lethargic, out-of-balance, weak or sick.

Gusto was designed to be super convenient. You are going to be drinking something every day. Pull out a convenient stick of Gusto and pour into any more of your favorite beverages. Gusto is approved for carry onto airplanes too!

 

What should you know as a traveler?

Health, comfort and daily or travel journeys can coexist. This should be the norm, not the exception. We know. We’ve been there before. We help you make wise decisions about your digestive health. This isn’t rocket science, but it is science. We are the real deal: scientific-based, professional, dedicated. We passionately care about making a difference for you.

Are you the ideal Gusto to Go customer?

You probably are. After all, 60-70 million Americans suffer from some form of digestive issue on a daily basis.

Our customers are intelligent and smart, inquisitive, resourceful, committed and proactive as to what they eat and drink. You may be the first in your family or your circle of friends to experience the satisfaction of making these new wise choices. Good for you!

 

Who is the ideal Gusto to Go customer?

Gusto to Go is for anyone who is stressed in some fashion. A vast range of stresses are often the key reason your healthy digestive system has gotten out-of-whack. But don’t stress about this. This happens to everyone.

Simply put: “Stress Happens” – all the time – even when you are not traveling. And the good news… Gusto to Go is safe and gentle. It can be enjoyed daily no matter where you are.

 

Are you worth Gusto to Go?

You are definitely worth it! Most of us have been trying for years to get more exercise and watch our diets (including our beverages). Now we’ve learned about the “missing link.” No matter how much you try to stay fit or how well you choose your diet. Or the pains you pay for and go through to buy “organic” for it’s healthy ingredients, it all can be a giant waste of time and money.

The missing link is this core issue of absorption of food and beverage nutrients. If you have too much stress, are on antibiotics, drink too much, are simply getting older, etc., your digestive system can easily get out-of-balance. When this happens your ability to naturally metabolize that food and absorb the nutrients from it, can be severely disrupted. Your own body is starving for nutrients but you are unable to absorb them into your bloodstream where they are distributed to nourish every one of your 10-trillion bodily cells.

This lack of absorption is the culprit that makes your immune system weaker. It keeps your body from its natural production of energy reserves. You quickly use up what is available and you begin to feel bone-tired for no obvious reason. You got plenty of rest and sleep last night. You haven’t run any marathons this morning. “Why (you ask,) am I feeling depleted, tired, mentally foggy with no get up and go?” The answer is your own gusto for life has got up and gone.

Our goal is to provide you a “natural way” to choose a life of enthusiasm, taste and appetite! – a life of gusto! Our “Kinetic System Solution” rebalances your core system of digestion which encourages the absorption of nutrients to begin again.

As to the professional traveler, our research shows 76% of them fear getting sick on any particular trip. And they wish their company cared more about their health when traveling for work.

Are you qualified for Gusto to Go?

Of course you are qualified. You know how stressful life can be – especially on your health and energy. And, you probably know that much of your overall health directly relates to a properly functioning digestive system. This means you are one of the few who “gets it.” Together we can make a difference in your gusto for life. You may not have previously had a viable option to make this happen. GTG now gives you a real choice.

But there is one catch, so to speak. When you begin to feel uncomfortable with digestive-related symptoms, Gusto to Go will not only help with those symptoms, but will also begin to resolve the problems that are causing those symptoms. That is why our Gusto Kinetic System Solution is considered a 2-for-1 fix.

But the facts are you did not begin to feel unwell immediately. It probably took a few days to feel so poorly. The good news is Gusto to Go begins to work immediately. There is no doubt about this. But please understand your complicated digestive system got imbalanced over several days and it may take several days for Gusto to get it rebalanced.

So here’s the catch. Take Gusto according to plan. Add Gusto to any single beverage you will drink once each day for at least 10 days. (This is why each box of Gusto to Go contains 10 servings.) We guarantee you will begin to feel better. It you don’t getting a refund or more product is super easy. Some people are so severely imbalanced it may take 10-30 days to get back on track.

Gusto is so safe and easy to take that you can have one drink of something per day with Gusto added in for the rest of your life. This is critical to know: Gusto will rebalance your system but will then maintain that balance and keep you on course. We can’t find one over-the-counter quick fix product that works within an hour or so to resolve such issues. There may be some products that mask your symptoms quickly, but they seem to always return.

If you cannot commit to following directions for 10-days, then perhaps Gusto is not for you. This is precisely the only reason we say that Gusto to Go isn’t for everyone. Some people will not give Gusto a fair chance to work.

Have you ever wondered...?

You may wonder why a product like Gusto to Go has not been available before. You probably have tried some over-the-counter digestive health products that did not work well, or (if chemical-based) may have been too violent. Big Pharma sells dozens of different products. They typically only address the “symptoms” of digestive distress – nausea, indigestion, bloating, gas and flatulence, constipation or diarrhea. And they do this temporarily. However, they generally have no intention of solving the problems that cause those symptoms. To “solve the problems” would adversely affect all their product sales. Ask yourself – “why do they make dozens of products?” The answer is simple – so they can sell more products. It’s all about profits.

We won’t win any popularity contests by being so blunt and truthful. But thems the facts, Jack. We see no reason not to tell you these things.

Say, did you read the recent revelation on the front page of the NY Times that exposed the facts that the sugar industry knew decades ago that too much sugar was causing many health problems (diabetes and heart disease), so they mis-directed everyone, even the FDA, by diverting the attention to blaming this on fats. Forty years ago we began to see the focus (and blame) going towards fats. Everything was re-marketed as “low-fat.”

What happened? People got much fatter due to the excessive sugar in their systems. This article just goes to show us how we have been fooled for decades. So, do we have any regrets when telling you many of the drugstore “quick-fix” over-the-counter products are a rip-off? Nope, we don’t. Rather it’s time you knew and had a choice for a product that works as designed. Gusto to Go is the real deal: scientifically-based, safe, convenient and guaranteed to work. (But please follow the simple directions.)

How do we create value for you?

We care because we’ve experienced these same challenges you face. We provide peace of mind that you’ve made a correct decision when choosing Gusto to Go to drink a beverage that matters. We want you in control, encouraged and educated. Gusto to Go is a simple way to address a complex out-of-whack system in a safe, non-allergenic, natural manner. Gusto to Go promotes and maintains your wellness (immunity), comfort and natural energy by supporting a healthy digestive system that has become unbalanced. You now have the ability to make a simple but smart choice to help you live your life with gusto. (But remember, Gusto to Go can be taken daily even when not traveling.)

We didn’t set out just to be a company that was different. We set out to be a company that makes a difference!

 

Will you find it necessary to take Gusto to Go every day?

You should and you might, but this will always be your choice. Many of our symptoms are caused by a variety of our modern day behaviors. Unless some personal changes are made, you may continue to have both problems and symptoms. In that case you may decide to take Gusto to Go daily no matter where you are. Daily use will not cause dependence; or reduce or take over the functions your body is naturally designed to perform. (Some steroids and artificial chemicals will do this.)

As one of the two founders of our company, Choosing Gusto, Inc., I’ve gotten into the habit of drinking some beverage daily that I’ve added Gusto to Go to. Sometimes it is water. Other times it is milk. (I love milk). I especially like to add Gusto to iced tea or even hot tea. It gives a mild ginger-pear flavor that is delightful and meaningful. I’ve done this for the past 3-years.

I am naturally energized, mentally focused, comfortable and have the ability to live my life with enthusiasm and gusto. My immune system must be balanced too as I haven’t been sick in three years (except for one bout of the flu virus). Nothing short of a vaccination could have prevented that.

 

 

What causes your digestive distress?

Entire books have been written on this question. In our opinion, here are the major causes. Stress is a major challenge. Even mild stress takes a toll on your body’s ability to process the foods you eat and absorb their nutrients. When that happens it can start a downward spiral resulting in less energy, a weakened immune system and often noticeable discomfort.

Other challenges involve what we eat and how. Often we choose poor-quality, overly-processed foods, improperly prepared. We eat them too frequently in quantities that are too large We eat at less than the best of times, in combination with other foods that “do not mix well together,” and we all tend to eat too fast and often consume way too much beverages (which dilutes our natural mechanisms for processing those foods into the core nutrients that our bodies need to absorb).

Note: The use of antibiotics almost always has unintended consequences. They will kill the good bacteria in your digestive tract as well as your bad germs. Antibiotics are a powerful solution your doctor may have recommended. We suggest you complement your use of antibiotics with Gusto to Go which will help restore your good bacteria while strengthening your immune system at the same time.

 

 

Can we change these bad habits?

YES, we can! These changes are difficult for some to make. Therefore, some people will continue to have the same problems over and over. We can’t change the whole world but we can help YOU begin to change. The first easy change comes in your choice of beverages to drink. Gusto to Go is an “add-to-any-beverage” addition with the real purpose of promoting your hydration, your overall health, energy, and comfort by helping your digestive system remain or return to balance.

This is a terrific replacement for the sugar waters we often consume or the “diet” drinks that contain questionable artificial ingredients. Gusto to Go naturally tastes so good you may forget the good it is doing. It helps rehydrate the body (quenches your thirst). But it is so much more. Gusto to Go gets your entire digestive system (all of its parts) tuned-up and working together to effectively return you to a more optimal functioning. Living a life with gusto starts with being healthy. Everything about health and vitality starts with good nutrition that is properly digested so the body’s absorption of food nutrients can feed all the cells of your entire body. You don’t need to know more than this to become more proactive about your health.

 

Should you treat the symptoms or address the problems?

Gusto to Go does both! It works on the symptoms and on the problems that caused them. Essentially you get a 2-for-1 fix. We call this the Kinetic System Solution. Everything starts with your digestive system. A fast and easy change starts with adding Gusto to Go to one of your favorite beverages of choice once per day.

Note: when starting Gusto to Go, especially if a day or two before a long trip, or if you are experiencing diarrhea or constipation, you may choose to drink 2 beverages each day with Gusto added. When your system begins to settle down go back to just one serving per day.

 

How fast does Gusto to Go work?

Gusto begins to balance your digestive system within minutes – literally. But please understand Gusto to Go is quite gentle. It probably took you a few days to start feeling crummy and we want you to understand it may take a few days to really start feeling better – but you will. An out-of-whack system will take some time to get fully rebalanced again.

Why do we use these particular ingredients?

Your digestive tract has many organs. Each one can be the place where certain symptoms occur. The Gusto to Go formula has something positive and appropriate for each section of your digestion. We couldn’t find what we envisioned in other products, so we decided to blend our own solution (using highly qualified food and beverage chemist/scientists).

Do I need to know where Gusto to Go is made?

We want you to know! We are proud that Gust to Go is manufactured in the USA under certified Good Manufacturing Processes (regulated by the Food and Drug Administration).

Why does Gusto to Go come as a powder mix?

Powder mixes are lighter & less bulky to carry and transport and much less susceptible to degradation over time – especially when packaged in virtually air-tight, heat and humidity-proof individual servings. They can be opened anywhere and added to your drink of choice: water, teas, milk or smoothies, or juices. They can be taken onto airplanes without the concerns that bottled beverages may have. (Ask your flight attendant for bottled water when they ask for your drink preferences. Then simply pour one small packet into the bottle or into the glass.)

How does Gusto to Go compare to other products?

We have not yet seen any other brands similar to Gusto to Go. This is why we had to create it!

However, you could buy similar ingredients in bottles and consume those large capsules in the morning and in the evening. You may get a similar experience.

But here’s the catch (actually several of them). Pills, especially 20-30 of them per day is just plain awkward. Wouldn’t one beverage with Gusto to Go added in be much more convenient?

Then there is the issue of interactions between all those ingredients you bought in pill form. This is a real concern. Some ingredients will cancel out the effect of others. Sometimes one ingredient may enhance the effects of other ingredients. Just taking so many pills (10-15 pills twice a day), has been known to cause digestive distresses in some people. The Gusto to Go formula took just over a year before the scientists figured out what ingredients worked well together.

There is a hassle factor to buying a dozen assorted bottles of pills, sorting them daily into 2 piles and consuming them correctly so you get the correct quantities.

Finally, the cost in time, effort and money is a hassle. The same ingredients in pill form as are in the Gusto blend will cost 25-40% more. We all want to make smart and safe purchasing decisions. We all want the best products and those designed to be convenient to use or consume. Gusto to Go takes care of all these concerns.

Give it a fair try. If you feel you didn’t get the results you hoped for, just tell us. We’ll make it right with a refund or more product. No games or hoops to jump through. Just send us an email. Lots of other products have a similar guarantee but to get satisfaction you must return the product or packaging. That is unnecessary and most who’d like to do that do not do that because it is a hassle.

Why combine digestive enzymes, herbs, prebiotics, assorted fibers, probiotics and amino acids?

Your digestive system has several parts working together as a whole. Probiotics work in ways and where digestive enzymes don’t and vice versa. Every single ingredient has an important part to play to support your digestive system and immunity.

Your digestive system is extremely complicated. For this reason, most over-the-counter quick fix products either do not work or simply help resolve symptoms but not solve the problems that cause them. The result is predictable: the symptoms return and return again.

 

When is the best time to take Gusto to Go?

You decide. Start with 1-3 servings per day and reduce to 1-serving per day to suit. Gusto to Go may be taken anytime throughout the day or night. It is slightly preferable to take before or with a meal but this isn’t critical.

What are your risks?

Gusto to Go is a risk-free proposition. Take our 10-day challenge and see for yourself. (Why 10-days? You probably didn’t get “digestively distressed” overnight. It takes a little time to re-tune your complex digestive system.) If unhappy simply call or email us to request a refund. (We don’t require you to ship anything back.) We want to take all the risks here. You should take none.

How can you help others?

If you are satisfied, we hope you will tell others and spread this good news. Your referrals or recommendations are priceless to us (and will be for them too). Nothing would be better than that.

Also, a portion of every purchase is donated to one of two charities. See our Community Giving link for more details.
