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.

  • 30 days and noticing a little change

    • Fernley, NV,

    • Verified Reviewer

    After 30 days I have noticed very little change. I was hoping for more. I have purchased 90 days worth of product, and I am going to give a full three months before I decide. I tried the product after my trainer suggested it. I work out regularly and eat a pretty clean diet, but continue to gain weight.

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

  • Prebiothrive supplement review

    • Gainesville, VA,
    • Jul 21, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    As stated there is really no taste to the powder, so it is easy to add to any beverage. I do not find it easy to dissolve the powder in cold beverages. I have found it best to use warm/hot water to dissolve and then add to another beverage. I usually take it in the am and have found it curbs my appetite. So I usually drink a cup of coffee with the powder and do not eat until lunchtime. I am feeling more energetic and have less joint pain which I am attributing to the powder and the diet. I am going to order the Vital Reds next!

  • Prebiotic usage

    I tried to drink the product with water and gagged. It doesn't dissolve well, so it needs something with a little taste. I used low-calorie Almond Milk, and I was able to drink the product. I have to shake it a lot and it still doesn't dissolve as much as I would like but I can drink it this way. I find that when I drink it for breakfast, I am not hungry for a long time.

  • Good but not great

    • Camas, WA,
    • Jul 21, 2018

    A few weeks ago I had a heart attack at age 54, and while researching what I should eat, I came across their website. I have been taking their prebiotic along with the Reds supplement. Although I love the Reds supplement, I do have some issues with the prebiotic. Their website claims it dissolves easily in water, and that has not been my experience. Even when I use a blender, there are several chunks left at the bottom of the glass. I wish they could find a way to make it truly dissolvable or offer it in a premade shake or something like that. I have noticed an improvement in how I feel, so I would definitely recommend it to others.

  • Great!

    I just started my Prebiothrive. I am happy with it. What I like most at this point is that it is tasteless and my kids don’t taste it in their smoothie in the morning.

    I also add the Vital Reds, and they like it! I never have been able to get this with my kids! My daughter spent most of her childhood on antibiotics for chronic urinary tract infections. We were able to stop it immediately with consuming water from an amazing water ionizer from Japan! Now we are working to promote the growth of the good microorganisms in her gut. She is one of those kids that is so sensitive to tastes. This is the first time she will take it down.

    Thank you, Dr. Gundry!

    Best thing that ever happened to my stomach!

    • Bothell, WA,
    • Jul 21, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    Before taking Prebiothrive, I had stomachaches every time I ate and several headaches a day. As soon as I started taking it every day, my stomachaches and headaches went away. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it is gritty. There's no taste to it, but the grittiness is a problem for me - but one I'm willing to deal with because I feel like a new person!

  • Helped with my digestive issues

    • Phoenix, AZ,
    • Jul 20, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    After consistently using this product for a couple of weeks, I notice less bloating, nausea and constipation. I have not noticed any other benefits yet but am satisfied enough to continue using it and would recommend it.

    When I first started using it, I had some heartburn and a very active, rolling belly for a few days. I went to every other day and then slowly worked my way back up to one full scoop a day, it just takes a little getting used to.

    I started taking this supplement two and a half weeks ago, and within four days I could feel a difference. And it has given me more energy and the feeling I had was run down and tired all the time, and now I am feeling way better. And I have lost weight also! I am excited to try the Vital Reds and the BCAA also, which I have ordered. So far I am extremely happy with this product.

    I have not used Prebiothrive consistently yet so I will need to respond later. The taste isn’t bad, and I need to get into a better routine of taking it. I like it when it thickens and is added to a cup of cold water.

    It is too soon in my experience to offer a review. One week is simply not enough time to evaluate the efficacy. It hasn't given any harmful side effects, however, and so I am willing to keep going with it.

  • Great product for regularity and bloating issues

    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been using the product for a few weeks. I have never been regular and am enjoying the way the product has helped me with regularity. Also, I am not feeling bloated which has always been a problem for me as well. The fact that this product does not have any taste makes it easier to enjoy in a glass of water or added to a smoothie.

    Thanks for the product, it has improved my well being!
