PrebioThrive is a supplement found on the website GundryMD.com, which promises to help people improve their digestive health and reduce food cravings for junk food or other poor food groups.
How Does It Work?
Dr. Steven Gundry, creator of GundryMd.com and PrebioThrive, is a heart surgeon who created his line of supplements and products in order to bring people back to a state of great health and wellness, and all his supplements focus on what he calls “Holobiotics.”
A simple explanation of Holobiotics is that they are the diet and lifestyle choices that people must make in order to bring their body’s different systems of natural microbes back into balance. PrebioThrive is a combination of powerful prebiotics which are described as being able to feed your “good bacteria” and ultimately starve the “bad bacteria.”
Once your body’s digestive bacteria is back in balance, people will realize that they have a reduction in cravings for sweets and junk food, they will have less gas and bloating, they will have an easier time managing their weight, and will experience an increase in natural appetite control.
All you have to do for optimal results is to mix one scoop of PrebioThrive powder into any beverage and drink it, two to three times each day.
Ingredients and Side Effects
This product says that they rely on three different ingredients for their effectiveness: Bimuno, Organic Acacia, and Agave Inulin. Their website says that these ingredients are 100% natural and safe, and have all been tested for safety, quality, and purity at an independent, 3rd-party facility.
These tests showed no reported side effects at all, however Dr. Gundry always encourages people to speak to their doctors before they begin any new supplement program, especially if you are already taking any existing medication.
Currently PrebioThrive is being specially discounted, and the website is unclear about how long this discount will last. They do say that their regular price for a single bottle is $78.99, but it is now being sold for $49.99 with a $4.95 shipping charge.
They are also discounting their larger, multi-bottle orders. A three bottle order is now priced at $132.00 and a six bottle order is priced at $244.00, both with free shipping at this time.
The website sales page claims that they offer a 90 Day Refund Policy, where customers can expect a refund of the purchase price in the first 90 days with “no questions, no hassle.”
In the past, when Reviewopedia has reviewed Gundry MD products, the Refund Policy was one of the biggest issues, as the website’s Terms & Conditions provided a different policy, saying that refunds were limited to just 30 days with a valid proof of purchase, and that any products that were attempted to be returned after 45 days would not be given a refund or exchange.
Thankfully it appears that they have corrected this discrepancy, and now the Terms & Conditions also clearly states that customers will be given 90 days from the date of purchase in which to contact their Customer Service team and arrange a return or exchange. They still don’t provide a full detailed policy, however, so customers will still want to contact Customer Service as soon as they believe they are considering a return.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 800-852-0477, by email at [email protected], or by submitting them directly to their website through the Gundry MD website’s Contact link.
Unfortunately there are very few reviews available for this product at this time, and those that are available are positive, but they also seem to be mostly posted by affiliate and partner companies.
This product is considered a prebiotic, which is different than a probiotic. When taking a probiotic, you are physically adding more good bacteria to your digestive system, while taking a prebiotic is simply providing the right food for the good bacteria that already exists in your body to feed off of, providing them with a chance to multiply.
Customers should speak to their physician before beginning a prebiotic or probiotic regimen, as they are not actually recommended for everyone.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Customers looking for different prebiotic or probiotic options will likely find too many to count, either online or at your local health food store. Still, you will always want to speak to your doctor before beginning any major supplemental program.

I don’t like that it doesn’t dissolve completely, but I knew that going in.
Dr. Gundry is great
OK since you asked. I over ordered big time and I called and I could send back and get credit for what I over ordered, BUT I decided to keep the over order since I have 90 days to decide on the product. I know that when I ordered it appeared to be what I was looking for. Now I really don't know what it is suppose to do. Within a week of starting the products I joined a gym and hired a trainer and decided I wanted to get back in shape, not that I am extremely over weight or in bad health. At 69 now I just say I want to be in shape to die. Death does not scare me so I just love to joke about it.
The product does not dissolve as well as I would like it to in my coffee but that does not really bother me. I have learned to put it in the cup first and then add the hot coffee and it works better for me like that. I do like the slightly different taste it does to my coffee or does it? See there are some things that I cannot tell but I do believe I feel better and have more energy. I am living with an attitude that the product is working and will reserve final decision until the almost 90 days. I am not sure if I had a problem with my digestive system or not but after my last 2 upper GI's doctor put me on a drug for acid re-flux and something to do with avoiding cancer. My stool now is still some times a mess in wiping but not always. So it may take more time for the verdict on the fiber intake from the powder.
I have called in a couple of times and the people were very nice and I was told that it does take different amounts of time for the product to work with different people. So for now this is about all I can say. I only gave 4 stars because the verdict is still out. I am looking forward tho to give 5 stars later. thanks for asking
Seems to be working
I'm trusting the product based on it's presentation to me and my need to take care of my body after having put on unnecessary weight.
I use it in my morning smoothie when I am home and at work with water. No weight loss yet but the winter weather has kept my outside activity minimal. Hoping to see a big difference come the end of march.
A new experience
So far, amazing!
Best product ever !!
I am almost 50 and have been suffering from constipation since the age of 10!!
I used to go to the bathroom about once every 8 to 10 days. Whenever i consulted for that problem, i was told to take laxatives, which i did and it hepled a little (not much, though !). I cannot stay on laxatives all my life (and i took them only when i was desperate). Needless to say that i had unbearble bloating as well. I started the lectin-free diet about 3 weeks ago, together with the prebiothrive and i noticed a huge improvment. I now go to the bathroom every other day (this has never happended to me before!!). I am not fat, but wanted to loose about 7-8 pounds, which i never managed to do. Now I have lost about 4 pounds and already feel much better. I don't have this "balloon feeling" anymore and feel much more "awake".
In summary, great stuff so far. I would definitely recommand this product to people who have constipation/bloateint/"heavy feeling".
Well done, Dr G!!
Only just started taking powder 2 weeks a little
hard to mix but ok.
I’m Becoming a Regular Customer
I am very lucky I stumbled across Dr Gundry as I’ve now adopted a lectin free diet and commenced prebiothrive which I feel has assisted my autoimmune system greatly.
I’ve only been on it 3 weeks but have already noticed a big difference in my symptoms which have lessened. I cannot wait to see the long term benefits of this marvellous product. Thank you Dr Gundry.
It really does work
Was very skeptical about this product. But after listening to Dr. Gundry’s podcasts, I went ahead to buy this product and have been using it for nearly 3 weeks. I do notice the difference.
- I have more energy
- no more irritable stomach and expulsion
- no cravings of sweets and snacks
- reduce my appetite, can only eat a small portion
The funny thing was, today I had cake. This cake was my fav cake. But now, it doesn’t taste yummy anymore in my palette. I could taste unnatural ingredients in it.
I used to eat spicy food with lots of chillies in it, but now I cannot handle it anymore.
Just bought another 3 jars each of PrebioThrive and Total Restore. Don’t want to run out of them.
Thanks Dr. Gundry!!
Since I just received the product and have only taken it for about 4 days it seems to be working fine. It most definitely helps with the bowel movement so far.
I have also noticed that I am not hungry and have to make myself either have a shake or a meal.
I did find that I have to put it in my bullet to get it to mix properly. Tried just stirring it this morning and that did not work.
Here is a suggestion for you and your shipping. If you use DHL things seem to get here to Canada a lot faster as I have use them before with really fast delivery like with 3 to 4 days. Our postal system sucks.
Change in energy!!
I have routinely taken probiotics, so I was curious after watching the video if I would notice a difference.
I had reduced Bloating in the abdomen,
And increased energy levels. I need to lose about 14 lbs, I’ve only been using In in smoothies for about two weeks, hoping it will help!!
I never received any products from you. But you took my money
When you're delivering the product and it's working, then I will give you a review.
If you drink coffee put it in the bottom of the cup and pour you coffee in the cup and stir. Does a better than fair job in hot coffee.
