About Gundry MD Prebiothrive

Do you constantly experience food cravings? Do you find it difficult to control your eating habits, along with your weight?

If so, the Gundry MD Prebiothrive supplement promises to use a “breakthrough” combination of prebiotics to help the good bacteria in your gut thrive, while simultaneously reducing the number of bad bacteria.

As a result, we’re told you’ll be able to bring natural balance to your digestive system and experience increased energy, decreased junk food cravings, a healthier appetite, along with less gas, bloating, and discomfort.

To accomplish this, Gundry MD claims Prebiothrive features only 100% natural and safe ingredients and comes with no reported side effects. Simply mix one scoop of the odorless, tasteless powder into any beverage, 2-3 times per day.

The bottom line is that many of us don’t eat the foods we should, so our digestion and overall health can take a hit.

But is there anything found in Gundry MD Prebiothrive that can “completely revitalize your gut, no matter how out of balance it is”? Does it have some stiff competition, or is it really a “game changer”?

Stick with us and we’ll explore these—and many other—important questions.

What’s the Difference Between a Probiotic & a Prebiotic?

The HighYa team has talked a whole lot about probiotics over the years, which are specific strains of bacteria that can help improve digestion, boost immune system response, and more—although there’s limited evidence that they can help you lose weight.

And if your digestion is much more effective and you’re feeling good, this can translate into secondary benefits like improved energy. For more, be sure to read A Guide to Buying Quality Probiotics.

On the other hand, prebiotics are carbohydrates that can’t be digested by your body, so they pass into your gut mostly intact, where they can act as a food source for probiotic bacteria. In other words, it helps them thrive.

Although most prebiotics don’t focus on a specific bacteria strain, in order to meet the definition they must increase the number or activity of bifidobacteria, a bacteria “family” often associated with improving constipation, reducing total cholesterol, addressing some aspects of IBS, and more.

Specifically, what prebiotics does Prebiothrive use?

How Does Gundry MD Prebiothrive Work?

After sitting through Prebiothrive’s hour-long sales video, what did we learn?

The first half of the video talked about the potential dangers of eating foods containing lectin, such as tomatoes, legumes, and more.

However, although Gundry MD’s Lectin Shield supplement promises to address this problem, Prebiothrive doesn’t. As a result, we’re not really sure why Dr. Gundry spent so much time talking about it.

During the second half of the video, we learned how “bad” gut bacteria can impact everything from your energy levels to your food decisions. Instead of killing them though, you simply need to nourish the “good” bacteria.

To accomplish this, we’re told Prebiothrive only contains three ingredients:

Bimuno is a powdered supplement in its own right, which claims to contain a “unique complex of patented galacto-oligosaccharides,” which can help bifidobacteria thrive. This is where Prebiothrive gets its “7-day” claim.

WebMD doesn’t list acacia as providing any kind of real-world benefits, although they list inulin as “possibly effective” for lowering triglyceride levels and reducing constipation (but only for elderly individuals).

Given this, what about Dr. Gundry’s claim that in his video that, “everything you’ll hear today is based on real science, and has been proven out in clinical tests”?

This is a prime example of the different between something being clinically studied, and something being considered “proven.”

The former technically only requires one study, while the latter requires a large body of double-blind, peer-reviewed clinical trials, most of which will point to the same general conclusion.

For more about this concept, be sure to read Think That Clinical Study Is Legit?

What About Prebiothrive’s Side Effects?

Because of the rapid increase in certain bacteria strains often caused by prebiotics, you may temporarily experience increased fermentation, leading to gassiness and bloating.

However, this should subside within a few days of regular use.

Similarly, WebMD indicates that acacia can cause mild “gas, bloating, nausea, and loose stools.”

How Much Does Prebiothrive Cost?

How much you’ll pay for Prebiothrive largely depends on where you purchase it. For example, if purchased through Gundry MD’s SilenceYourCravings URL, you’ll pay:

  • 1 Jar: $49.99
  • 3 Jars: $105.00
  • 6 Jars: $244.00

On the other hand, if purchased directly through the Gundry MD main site, you’ll pay $79 for a single bottle.

Note: While it appears each jar of Prebiothrive contains 10.16oz of powder, there’s no indication of how many scoops this contains—or how often you’ll need to reorder.

Nonetheless, Prebiothrive comes with a 90-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges. In order to request one, Gundry MD’s customer service department can be reached at (800) 852-0477.

Does Prebiothrive Have Any Competition? What About Customer Reviews?

On Gundry MD’s main website, Prebiothrive had 51 customer reviews and an average rating of 5 stars. There, common compliments referenced effective results (better overall health, increased energy, a more balanced gut, etc.) and ease of use.

Outside of this, however, we didn’t come across any third-party feedback for Prebiothrive at the time of our research.

Fortunately, we’ve also written about many of Gundry MD’s other popular products, including Vital Reds, Correct + Calm Redness Relief Cream, Primal Plants, and more.

Overall, these products tend to have very positive reviews from customers here on HighYa, largely with 5-star average ratings and many of the same compliments.

On the other hand, what few complaints there are seem to reference misleading billing and ineffective results. In most of these instances, a company representative responded in good faith to try to rectify the situation.

As far as Bimuno goes, it also seems to have a mostly positive online customer reviews that claim it might help quickly improve digestion, reduced IBS symptoms, decreased bloating, and more.

Are there other prebiotics out there? Certainly, which you can quickly see by searching online—many of which cost much less than Prebiothrive. Are there other supplements formulated exactly like it, though? No.

Does this mean Prebiothrive is necessarily your best choice?

Let’s carry this thought over into the next section as we wrap things up.

Can Gundry MD Prebiothrive Reduce Your Cravings?

In the end, our goal here at HighYa isn’t to tell you whether or not to purchase a product or service. Instead, it’s to pass along the information we learned during our research and leave the final decision up to you.

So, given the level of clinical evidence showing that prebiotics might help boost levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut, taking one of these supplements certainly seems like a logical first step if you’re looking to balance your digestion.

Just keep in mind that—even according to Dr. Gundry’s Prebiothrive video—if you want to maximize your results, it’s recommended that you take a probiotic along with it, which will obviously increase your overall costs.

Speaking of cost, a 30-day supply of Bimuno can be purchased online for about $28, which doesn’t include the triglyceride-reducing potential of inulin, but might provide many other benefits at a meaningfully lower price than Prebiothrive.

You can even find many supplements containing both probiotics and prebiotics in the same formulation (although not from Gundry MD), which might deliver the ultimate bang-for-your-buck.

In the end though, Gundry MD seems to stand behind Prebiothrive with a 90-day refund policy, which might help ease some of your hesitations if you’re thinking about giving it a try. Just remember you could be out a few bucks in S&H if you decide to process a refund.

    Upset stomach

    • Ohio,
    • Feb 17, 2017

    I took Prebiothrive daily until only about three scoops were left in the container, when suddenly my stomach began to feel very upset and painful.

    I called the number on the container and asked for advice, and was just told to keep taking it for a few more days, ven though I had already taken almost a whole container, and if the upset painful stomach did not stop, that I was advised to quit taking it. I have had no other contact from Dr. Gundry's company despite sending emails and reviews concerning my experience and asking them to contact me to discuss it.

    I feel the product is very expensive and keep getting more sales pitches on Vital Reds and Greens, even though I had to decline the initial sales pitches about 5-6 times before I could check out when I first purchased it. I feel that if Prebiothrive does all that Dr. Gundry said in the video, why does he have to pitch all the other expensive supplements, such as Vital Reds, Greens, supplements for circulation, etc.

    I purchased this product on 1/9/17. It seems this site might be connected to Dr. Gundry, otherwise why ask for my order number? Also, I wonder if this review will be posted. I see only positive reviews with high ratings. I go to other sites and see many negative and questions.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Found this information not to be honest.

    • Hot Springs Village, Arkansas,
    • Feb 7, 2017

    I ordered three jars of Vital Reds and then found out that another order was placed, which I didn't order. Altogether, instead of a little more than $83.00, I got another cost of more than $244 (which I didn't order).

    I called one number, but it was not working number. I found another number and talked with someone. Although the time has passed for it to be shipped, it hasn't been shipped yet. I tried to cancel the order but was told to wait until I receive it, and then return it. There was no date as to when I should receive the order, or even if that's the truth.

    I wouldn't order it again, nor would I believe this is factual.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Prebiotics

    I have enjoyed the prebiotics I purchased. They mix in water easily and are quick to take daily. I have not taken them daily yet, but that is due to me forgetting them since they were not in my morning routine.

    Great product!

    I can't believe how well this stuff works! I have been able to go the bathroom every single day, and that is an amazing thing! I work for a major airline, and normally I cannot go to the bathroom the entire time I am gone. Now it doesn't matter where I am or what I am doing; I am regular.

    The only problem I am having is excess gas. I have been using a little less each day, and that is helping. Overall this product is amazing!

    My experience

    I honestly think it is helping me with my stomach behavior.

    I was thinking of getting a formula that will color at contact with water but no, and it does not dissolve as easy as the red combination. I have had probiotics before, and this one might be working good with the combination of the red product.

    I am using both, and for the first five days I was active, but not anymore. I have very low T, and I still feel very tired and have my craves. I am also following their suggestions by taking some olive oil with dinner and dark chocolate every night. Unfortunately, on their video, there is no indication of a specific amount to take.

    I will really thank them if there is any way to get more suggestions from them.

    Great stuff

    This was very helpful when I had to take an antibiotic for an illness that never went away. I understood that this would rebuild intestinal flora, and I did feel more regular when I took this product. I am very impressed with Dr. Gundry's research and will most likely try his other products.

    Pleased with results!

    • Manassas, VA,
    • Feb 3, 2017

    I'm a 66-year-old woman who's actually pretty healthy. I'm not overweight and have excellent blood pressure and blood profiles. But, I'm chronically constipated and have been since I was a toddler. Despite a high fiber diet with minimal consumption of processed foods; colds turn into sinus infections twice a year (antibiotics are used, of course), I'm starting to develop eczema on my neck, and I have a constant battle with vaginal infections (again, antibiotics and antifungals are used).

    As they had warned, I had to take Prebiothrive three times a day for a week, then backed off to two times a day for about five days, and now I'm happy with once a day. But I also take about a tablespoon of ground flax seed, a 35 billion count probiotic, and am following a strict diet of no gluten, no dairy, only low sugar fruit (mostly limes and berries), Stevia as my only sweetener, low starch vegetables, no alcohol, and yeast products or fermented foods. Almost everything is organic. And I'm making my own bone broth and consuming at least one cup a day.

    I started this on January first and I'm no longer constipated, a patch of eczema has disappeared, I feel terrific and have lost 7.5 pounds without hunger issues. Prebiothrive is an integral part of my "arsenal." I suspect I have a systemic yeast overgrowth and I'm following this and taking anti-fungal herbal supplements for 90 days.

    I'll keep to this strict diet for the 90 days, but then gradually reintroduce dairy and gluten. I'm not gluten sensitive, but I don't trust modern wheat. They have me sold on the benefit of prebiotics to add to my probiotics, so that will now be a part of my life.

    I thought their long online article was terrific. It is very informative and persuasive. Thanks!

    Good product

    I started using Prebiothrive about a month ago, and I started to feel the difference in my gut within a few days. I didn't have as much gas and bloating, which felt so good.

    I also found that food tastes better. Some of my favorite foods just didn't taste the same and people said that it was just because I was getting old. Now my food tastes great, just like I when I was younger.

    This is a great product and I even have my husband using it.

    My first experience with Gundry's products

    • New York,
    • Jan 31, 2017

    I have been taking the Gundry MD Prebiothrive for two and a half weeks and have lost a belt notch and 5.5 lbs. with better behavior in my eating habits. The best feeling (other than losing the weight and the smaller belly) is the loss of the feeling of an extended belly and the uncomfortable feeling that comes with that.

    How Prebiothrive reduced my food cravings

    • New Jersey,
    • Jan 30, 2017

    Although though after thirty-seven years in a program that addresses compulsive overeating on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels my behavior around food has improved, I continue at times to have strong cravings for desserts and junk food.

    When I listened to Dr. Gundry's video and heard the scientific reason Prebiothrive reduced cravings, I decided I had to try anything that took away my intense food thoughts.

    The very first time I put Prebiothrive in my morning green smoothie, the rest of my day was craving-free! If I looked at a particular food and asked myself if I wanted it, my mind and body answered with a resounding, "No." The amazing thing was I could turn away, go about my business and not obsess about the food item or worse, go back and eat it.

    Thank you, Dr. Gundry, for all your hard work and service to those of us whose food thoughts have ruled our lives. Now, food cravings, no more!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
