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.

    Taking Prebiothrive has helped me with my IBS and other gastrointestinal issues. This is the first product that has worked for me. I take it every morning. No more tummy bloating or having to worry about being out and have to know where the restrooms are located, and no more emergencies that I have to get there immediately.

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

    It doesn't work that well, and I hate the taste. I think drinking extra water every day would have the same effect. I am disappointed and certainly not impressed. This was quite a pricey lesson for me.

    Prebiothrive is great!

    So far so good

    • Scottdale, AZ,
    • Dec 13, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    Well, I’ve only been using Prebiothrive for two weeks and lost three pounds, and I haven’t been on any special diet so I know if I would watch my eating better I’m sure I’d lose more, and faster. My husband is using it too and lost 4 pounds. We have more energy and generally feel better. At first, we were having trouble getting it all to dissolve, then I started using my Bullet and no more chunks, and as advertised no flavor or aftertaste.

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

    I have been using the Prebiothrive for three weeks. I take it when I first get up and then have breakfast an hour later. I notice I have less heartburn. My bowel movements are more frequent and my stool is much softer. I sleep much better at night. No question it’s making a difference. I’m looking forward to what will happen over the long term.

    Gut getting better

    • Palm Springs, CA,
    • Dec 11, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    The appearance put me off at first (looked like dry paper mulch), but not enough keep me from trying it. I mixed it with just water. The taste was pleasant enough. I've been taking it for a little over a week and am beginning to notice subtle changes. I'm not craving sweets as I did and my overall sense of wellbeing is somehow "smoother." The only negative I can report is: the spoon is too short (or the bottle is too deep, OR my fingers are too short).

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

    I’ve been using this product for 1 and 1/2 weeks and I don’t seem to get heartburn anymore. The only thing I am disappointed in is the powder does not dissolve very well in any liquid, and clumps at the bottom of the glass.

    Prebiothrive was pretty good but not worth depending on month to month.

    • Dec 10, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I would like to start off my experience by saying that Prebiothrive is an effective dietary supplement for great digestion results and feeling great along with a healthy diet. I agree with all that needs to be done in order to be healthy but staying on a membership. Well, I'm not fond of that idea, especially because it's not cost effective for me.

    I opened the package in excitement only to find out that it was almost halfway full yet I needed to use a full scoop to get proper results. For the price, I think I'm better off just buying flaxseed packages mixed with berries made by Spectrum, which is organic, for like $7 at a local supermarket. I have lost 5 pounds already. Results are great. I use this like 2-3 times a day and it works. I would not want to spend anywhere near $40-60 for Prebiothrive. It's just not worth it. I would just rather make my own concoction instead. I have all the necessary ingredients, what's left is finding the ideal balance, which isn't that hard, and the volume is much more and cheaper in the long run and it's still organic. That's my decision. In fact, I don't even know what milk or why there is milk to begin with in Prebiothrive. I think it's mainly expensive.

    It was worth trying though. It's a little more than I can afford.

    Thanks.

  • Good so far.

    • Pearl City, HI,

    After a fairly rough start, things are starting to settle down. After about a week, Prebiothrive seems to be starting to do its job. After using it for a couple of weeks, I started to feel better, reduced my craving for junk food and feel less tired in the afternoon. I hope things will continue to get better over time.

    The rough start included lots of gas, still have some gas, but way less than during the first week. Also, Prebiothrive does not dissolve or remain suspended even when using a shaker, stirring works just as well as shaking. A couple of annoying things are the bottle is too big (it comes only about half full) and the scoop handle is too short for this bottle. Also, I found that the Customer Service to be slow and not very helpful to my inquiries.

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

  • It worked!

    • Georgia,
    • Dec 9, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    So, everyone, I’ve been on this journey for three years. Within the three years, I’ve been diagnosed with constipation, gastroparesis, IBS, EBV, and fibroids. I started using this supplement about two years ago. It worked wonderfully for about three weeks and then it stopped. So eventually I stopped using this product.

    A year later I found out that I had a huge fibroid pressing down on my bowel. Well, that explained why the medicine stopped working. Long story short, I started having constipation issues again even after my surgery so I gave this product a try again. After using the first day, I had a bowel movement the next day. And even now my movements are more regular. I feel better. Although my stomach is still bloated and I still have gas, I am still hopeful that this will go away. My stomach has this soothing feeling. I honestly think healing is taking place. I have only been using this product a week...wow! But again, I’m hopeful and also interested in this doctor's other products to maybe even help with the bloat.

    Try this product if you suffer from severe constipation. It really helps. And if anyone can help me, share please. Good luck you guys, we will beat this!

    I have been taking Prebiothrive for approximately three weeks now. I have seen a moderate increase in energy and notice that I am not craving snacks between meals. I am 67 and still working full time in a demanding job. This is my first experience with prebiotics, and hope that the trend of increased energy/less snacking continues.

    Thank you.
