Prebiotic supplements have become very popular lately due to their promising health benefits. Today we are going to discuss one of them called PrebioThrive. This dietary supplement promises that its gentle formula will help you to keep your digestion comfortable. It comes in a drinkable for, which makes it more effective and fast-acting. However, we found reports of some side effects linked to this product like nausea and bloating, despite the company promising reduction of digestive discomfort. How does this product work in reality? Is it able to improve the user's digestive health? Are there many complaints about digestive discomfort over there? These and more questions will be answered later in this review but at first let us take a look at the manufacturer of Prebiothrive and how it started.
Well, the formula is produced by the Gundry MD Company that promises to help improve and support the consumer's digestive system. Unfortunately, there is lack of information about the company available online. The official website is low-informative but it contains many promising claims about the product's effectiveness. The supplement is said to be created with "purity in mind". The company says that the human intestine is a vital part of the digestive system, and their supplement is claimed to help keep it healthy. The product works by filling your gut with good bacteria and allowing them to grow and flourish. It contains five probiotic ingredients that are claimed to support proper digestive health. We have conducted a thorough research of the product in order to find out which exactly ingredients it contains. This is what we found.
As it was already mentioned, PrebioThrive contains five ingredients that are said to be helpful in supporting a healthy human digestive system. These ingredients are said to be completely organic and to have positive effects on the user's body. The first ingredient featured in the formula of this supplement is Acacia Gum. This component is also known as "gum Arabia." It promises to contain more fiber than any other food. According to the research from the Nutrition Journal, consuming this component leads to significant reduction of body fat percentage and BMI. Fiber may have some side effects, though, namely gas, bloating, constipation or, on the contrary, diarrhea. Another PrebioThrive ingredient is Flaxseed. It is also rich in fiber. It also contains a lot of antioxidants, protein, lignans and essential fatty acids. Let's take a closer look at these parts.
Fiber is known for its positive effects. According to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, it works by helping food move through your digestive system more easily promoting regularity; however, some people may still have constipation. Lignans are found in plant-based foods. These are known for their antioxidant effects, according to Livestrong.com. Fatty acids contained in PrebioThrive are said to be naturally found in seafood. They include alpha linolenic acid and omega-3. The supplement also contains Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) which are carbohydrates linked to the ability to reduce mild constipation, according to Scandinavian Journal of Food and Nutrition states. Agave Inulin is a carbohydrate. It contains 100% dietary fiber and might help improve digestive health, according to Naturel West. It is mainly used in the product as a sweetener.
As you can see, PrebioThrive contain quite many ingredients, some of which seem to be beneficial for the human health. However, some of them may be associated with a number of side effects. We are going to discuss these issues in the next part of this review. we are concerned with the fat that the manufacturer does not provide any dosage information about the ingredients in the supplement on their official website. We will also take a look at the testimonials left by real customers about the supplement on third-party websites.
The official website of PrebioThrive says nothing about potential side effects of the product, but this does not mean that it is safe to use to everyone. While there is no mentioning of side effects on the company's site, we had a chance to investigate real customers' reviews and the ingredients' potential negative effects. According to WebMD, flaxseed may be linked to such side effects as abdominal discomfort, gas and bloating. Fiber may be associated with such side effects as stomach ache, bloating diarrhea and constipation. If you experience any of these side effects, stop using the dietary supplement immediately and consult your doctor. Do not give PrebioThrive to children and pregnant or breastfeeding women. According to the packaging, you are recommended to take one scoop of the product once a day.
What are real users saying about their experience of using this probiotic supplement? Customer reputation online has a mixed character. While the product seems to work for some consumers, it is completely unhelpful for others. Some users report that the supplement caused side effects to them such as indigestion, stomach pain, gas and constipation. Some customers have complained about the flavor and texture of the product. They often say that when you are drinking the stuff, it feels like you are drinking a psyllium Fiber drink. Many people say that PrebioThrive is too expensive. Here are the actual users' testimonials found online.
"I am going to take day three of PrebioThrive, but, to be honest, I am a bit fearful because of how I a feel. I suffer from abdominal cramping and bloating after taking this product. Last night I almost didn't sleep due to these symptoms. I hope this bloating sensation finishes within a week, if not I will return my three-month supply. We will see if it works or not."
"I decided to try PrebioThrive due to the reviews describing its many health benefits. This product claimed to have a positive impact on digestion. I have eaten a healthy diet lately: gluten free, low sugar, low carb, and no junk food at all. This product did not justify its claims, it actually causes very bad abdominal pains, horrific gas, uncomfortable bloating, and constipation! After four days of taking it I decided I would use it never again."
"I have been taking PrebioThrive for a week. I have read that you are supposed to take it for a month before making any conclusions, but I am not ready to continue this terrible experiment. I feel really bad because of the constipation it gave me. The product doesn't mix in water. As a result, you have to drink it down with clumps. This is also a very bad tasting product that has not much flavor."
PrebioThrive can be bought online only. Thus, it can be purchased through the official site of the manufacturer. It is available in a few options such as a 30-day, 90-day and 180-day supply. The price of a 30-day supply is $79 plus free shipping. You can save $5 on each jar if you buy three of them and $10 on a jar if you buy six ones. The company also offers a 90-day money-back guarantee.
Summing up everything we have learnt about PrebioThrive this dietary supplement, does not appear to meet its claims. Our research team encountered promising claims about the product on the official site of the company; however, based on the customer feedback, it fails to improve digestion, reduce discomfort in bowel and stomach, improve balance of gut microbiome and fight morning constipation. Besides, this product may cause certain side effects including gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation it promises to fight. The supplement is difficult to dissolve in water and has bad taste, according to the majority of consumers. If you want to improve your digestion, promote regularity, increase your energy and boost your immunity, this is not a good option. Taking into account all drawbacks, I cannot recommend PrebioThrive to usage.
