We’re on a mission to make good gut health effortless for you to achieve & maintain.

The reality of life is that we’re all busier than ever before.  And the first thing that seems to fall away is our gut health, and doesn’t it let us know!  Here at Essential Stacks, we’re on a mission to make good gut health effortless to maintain for people living busy lives. Our vision is that through a simple, yet smart, system of dietary health supplements people will be able to easily consume the nutrients, vitamins and beneficial bacteria their gut wants to thrive each and every day.

Meet Our Experts

Bailey Franzen MS, RDN

Registered Dietitian (RDN)

I hold a Masters of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Loma Linda University. My expertise lies in the dietary management of gastrointestinal disorders such as IBS, including medical nutrition management of multiple bowel related complications. I love digging into the latest nutritional research and translating it into useful information for my clients. I’m very passionate about healthy living and enjoy spending time outdoors with my three children, as well as testing all kinds of new healthy recipes.

Dr Joe Haines MD, MPH

Medical Doctor (MD)

I have over 35 years experience practicing medicine in both a family practice setting and as a senior medical officer & surgeon in the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW).  Which is to say I’ve seen it all!  Over the years I’ve treated 1000s of patients with GI problems and my passion for gut health continues to grow as I see the fantastic results my family & patients have enjoyed moving away from the Standard American Diet. I’ve also published over 200 articles; medical, general interest and historical – I love to share my research and teach!

Richelle Godwin BS, RDN

Registered Dietitian (RDN)

I have more than 15 years of experience in the field of dietetics, culinary arts, and physical fitness. I am an active yoga instructor and have a passion for cooking, creating recipes that are healthy, wholesome, and flavorful. Tying these together I am also a professional photographer, a Master Gardener, and run my own dietetic consulting company, Health-Crush. Food is the key to anyone’s heart and this is probably why I’ve found my passion in it and always will for a lifetime.

We deeply care about this mission, because we are one of you.

Like you, our team lives with a range of gut issues, which means we ‘take what me make’ and do whatever is required to create the best supplements in the industry for gut health.  No one cares more.
