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: $132.00
  • 6 Jars: $199.00

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.

    I couldn’t be more disappointed with this product and am disappointed with myself for getting suckered into purchasing it. It does not dissolve in any liquid I put it in. No amount of mixing or shaking helps. All I'm left with is a sludgy, undrinkable paste that needs to be chewed up to try and get it down.

    I (stupidly) bought a whole case of this crap, which I will end up throwing away.

    Don’t waste your money.

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

    From the first day of taking, I’ve had positive results. You have to shake it really well. The flavor is not bad at all. It tastes kind of grainy. I plan to continue using this product. It definitely helps with digestion and regularity.

    This product has done wonders for my gut health. I'd become very unhappy and concerned with growing symptoms like bloating, feeling heavy and stuffed after a few bites of food, constantly using the bathroom, and unexplained weight gain. I felt relief from these issues after 1-2 days of using Prebiothrive. Just one scoop each morning to start my day has made each day healthier and happier for me.

    The product works as advertised

    • Metairie, LA,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I am on day 22 of a 30-day sample and find the product to work as advertised. Some of the advertisement suggested certain tips to make the product more palatable. I find it hard to dissolve the product completely as instructed, but I don't mind because I like the flavor and don't need to modify it. I started taking the product and have since been able to exercise and eat better.

    Works as intended

    • Broomfield, CO,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I started taking the product about three weeks ago. Only after a few days, I have noticed that I do not feel as hungry as I used to feel before taking the Prebiothrive. Also, I hardly feel any desire to eat sweets or fried foods. I feel much lighter and no bloating. I usually take a scoop of the product and put it in a blender. Pour 1% milk and some frozen fruit. Then I blend if for a minute. The taste is very pleasant; you just need to make sure to drink it right away.

    I never believed that our gut flora can be the cause of our cravings, I thought it is just related to our willpower in choosing unhealthy vs. healthy foods. But once I tried this product for a couple weeks, I am confident that it is related to the bacteria in our digestive tract. I feel optimistic that now I can start losing weight without going on diets, but rather having the desire to eat healthy foods in smaller portions.

    At first, I hesitated to buy the product, but after watching his convincing video of how all the bad bugs we feed when eating bad food attack, I decided it was time for a change. So the $50 I spent for my product was well worth it, and I feel the energy level increase! I love it and wish to continue using it.

    Actually I bought Prebiothrive for my son who weighs 197 lbs, after having this product for three weeks, he weighs 187 lbs. I mixed it with his milk every day. He's still having cravings for bread and rice but not as much that he had before. I would like to continue buying this product, and hopefully, my son will be losing more lbs in a couple of months.

    Very good!

    • Fallbrook, CA,

    I've had an opportunity to look up each of the ingredients in Prebiothrive and learned that everything in it was very healthy and very good for you.

    The only two problems that I'm having right now is:

    1) The price.

    2) The fact that I was not given a full 30-day supply of this product, because I've been using it exactly as directed, and I am already starting to run out. I did not receive a full jar of this product.

    Since I am disabled and am living on a fixed income, I have to watch my expenses very carefully. I'm not saying it's not a good product. It certainly is. But at the full price of $79.95, it's hard for me to afford.

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

    Hopeful

    I am a new member who has struggled for many years with poor health and increasing weight gain. When I ordered my first container of Dr. Grundry's probiotics, I right away started to feel less aches and pains all over my body, and I lost two pounds. It is really difficult for me to eliminate some of the foods they have suggested because I have been a vegetarian for 45 years and most of the offending foods are my main source of protein. My family, who are also lifelong vegetarians, are not very happy about giving up their favorite foods. I believe in your theory, Dr. Gundry, but it's going to be a real struggle for me to put it into practice.

    Good stuff so far

    I am taking PreBioThrive. You are correct about being consistent. It helps with my hunger cravings. I do crave more whole foods now then snacks. I have not been taking it long so I would love to see the more long-term effects later down the road.

    I was not completely overweight but the PreBioThrive helps with how I feel. I am excited to begin a more active lifestyle too. Maybe this is an effect of this product? I will keep it up for now.

    The only thing I don't care for is taking the power. No matter what I mix it with, I don't like the texture. But I don't know that that can be helped. It is not a huge deal. But it is the only thing so far that I do not like about the product.
