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 bought this powdered product to assist with weight loss. And yes, the immediate result has been a greatly reduced appetite. Food became something I MUST eat for nourishment vs. feeding myself frequently each day for pleasure. So I am now able to make GOOD food choices - not graze continuously on empty nutrition foods. BUT, the best surprise was that my forever inflammation congested sinuses have opened/drained. I have been congested since a young child (60 years), and I can now live and sleep unimpeded by congestion.

    My brother was the family "sick" child. I gave him a container to try. Immediately he has been able to sleep restfully in his bed vs. spending the nights in a recliner to keep his congested sinuses open! I mix the prebiotic powder in yogurt each morning as my breakfast. Wonderful to ingest healthy wholesome prebiotic with probiotic yogurt. My brother also mixes the powder in his food since it does not dissolve in any liquid. We are both astonished and pleased with this product and will recommend its use.

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

    Didn't work, won't dissolve, expensive to return

    • Dayton, OH,
    • Dec 26, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I used this product for two weeks after buying six months worth. I saw virtually no change in anything with regard to cravings, weight loss, bowel habits, etc. and was advised to stop using it by my internist primary-care physician. The product would not dissolve in any liquid I tried...always left brown sludge in the bottom of the glass, regardless of how much it was shaken. I decided to return the product for a full refund, and after paying the nearly $30.00 to return the product, I am waiting for confirmation of the product being returned and delivered successfully. If I actually do end up with a refund, at least I'm not out the $228.00 original purchase price. I can't believe the company will not pay return postage.

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

    250 to zero.

    • Centralia, WA,
    • Dec 19, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    Costco has Tums in 250 tablet containers, which I have purchased regularly. Almost every time I drank beer or ate pizza, I would experience indigestion or heartburn, especially at bedtime as soon as I laid down. In fact, almost any full meal in the evening would trigger discomfort. There were TWO tablets left in the bottle when I began taking the Prebiothrive. The TWO tablets are still there, and that was 30 days ago. I have dropped eight pounds since I began the regiment they recommended - no sugar, no grains, etc.

    Most appreciated.

    I have started this product only one week ago and have been impressed that my hunger has subsided and I don’t seem to want to pick at things between meals. Also, I was pleasantly surprised that something that looks like puddle water doesn’t taste of anything other than water, so it’s ok to drink first thing.

    To be honest, it is really hard to tell if the Prebiothrive is responsible for me becoming more regular. I also take their Total Restore, Probiotics and the Reds on a daily basis. My daily bowel movements are becoming more regular, and I do not care which one is helping but one or more must be helping, and that is a major improvement.

    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.

    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.

      Dave J.

      Since ordering this product, I have not seen or experienced any obvious benefits outlined in the infomercial online. Quite the contrary. I have experienced some bloating, no decrease in appetite, and no weight loss, despite using the product religiously and following the dietary recommendations. I consulted with my doctor (an internist), and he recommended I discontinue use.

      In addition to the non-results I experienced, the product simply will NOT dissolve in any liquid, despite extended and vigorous shaking, and leaving a nasty looking sludge deposit in the bottom of the shaker.

      I would like a full refund of the purchase price of $228.00 for six bottles, purchased in two orders (#GM461950 and #GM4619529 on Visa ending in 2193, purchased 6th of December 2018). I would also like a return postage label, so I may return the unused product. Thank you.

    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.

    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.
