About Gundry MD Prebiothrive

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Oct 17, 2016

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 and 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.

On the other hand, prebiotics are a form of fiber 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.

Prebiothrive’s Potential 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.

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.

A Look at Customer Reviews of Prebiothrive

On Gundry MD’s main website, Prebiothrive has over 600 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.

Here on HighYa, as of 6/4/19, over 390 customers left their review for a combined rating of 4.2 stars.

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 mostly positive online customer reviews that claim it might help quickly improve digestion, reduced IBS symptoms, decreased bloating, and more.

The Bottom Line: Can Gundry MD Prebiothrive Reduce Your Cravings?

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.

    Would tell my friends about it. Have it in my coffee in the morning. I have IBS, seems to help it. Mixes with coffee very well. Have a friend who told me about your product. And also ordered your book. She lost weight on your book and looks great. I noticed her weight loss in about 2 months. Asked her what she was doing and told me about the book. She gave it to me to read and after I read it and what it did for her I got very interested. So I looked up your site and looked at your video and became very interested in it. Like your advice on your site and recipe to makeup and the advice you give out on your website. Thank you for your product.

    I started using Prebiothrive to test it out so I can suggest it to my husband and daughter who suffer from frequent indigestion. I rarely had stomach problems but decided to try it out. Once I started using this product, almost immediately I noticed less pain in my joints and was waking up being able to move with greater flexibility. The powder is a little heavy and you have to mix it a lot to have it dissolve completely. Still, I got used to the taste and the consistency, and I ended up licking the spoon and scraping the residual from the glass. My husband has been a little skeptic about it and has not decided to try it. My daughter did not like the taste. Still I think it is a good product. The only negative thing I can say about it is that I have more gas, and sometimes it makes noise in my abdomen, which is a little embarrassing. I bought two cans and finished them last week.

    Also last week, I started using Vital Reds and I think they are FANTASTIC. I am feeling A LOT MORE energy and vitality. I feel less sluggish, although I think I am experiencing lower blood pressure at the same time.

    This week without Prebiothrive I think the noises in my belly have decreased. I am considering using Vital Reds alone to see how it goes, but will be on the lookout to see if the joint pains come back in the mornings.

    After taking the Prebiothrive I feel lighter after just a few days. My clothes are not as snug. I'm not experiencing any bloating as usual. I would recommend to everyone and everybody that experiences bloating and gas excessively. My food seems to digest better while taking the product.

    I use Prebiothrive every day in the morning as my first drink of the day. It blends best in a Bullet or Ninja blender instead of manual stiring. It truly is tasteless and curbs my appetite and regulates my BM daily with easier elimination. I have lost 3 lbs after 2 weeks of consumption. I truly feel good and energized with Prebiothrive in my daily routine!

    I use it daily in my protein shakes and now my bowel movements are working again and I have more energy. It is a good product for my morning smoothies, and I tried it plain and I did not like it. Then I added my vanilla protein powder, then I was able to drink it without putting it in my smoothie drinks. I use my own probiotic prunes that I eat.

    Dear Dr. Grundy,

    This product is so effective for me.

    I haven't had to change anything, just drink this every morning.

    My skin is clearing up and looking better. I notice that I am starting to decrease fat around my stomach area in a short period of time. I feel less tired and don't feel the need to eat between meals.

    In the 2 weeks of using Prebiothrive, I can honestly say I am feeling really good about myself and my body is getting leaner.

    Thank you very much for developing this wonderful product.

  • Kicked my sugar cravings!

    I was optimistic about trying this product. I was 2 months pre-op for gastric bypass surgery. One of the things I struggled with was sugar and soda. I tried this and it really worked. It helped me lose almost 30 pounds pre-op. So I tried it. I'm 3 days post-op now. And if my sugar cravings come back I will definitely try this again...however, I'm looking forward to trying more of the product as I begin my journey.

    It's a little harder to drink, but I put in less water and drink it faster. It gives me more energy and I am not hungry so often. I like it a lot. I would like to try more products of Gundry.
