PrebioThrive is new 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 feel so much better. I have fibromyalgia and in contest pain. I am adapting to diet changes from your plant paradox book and taking the prebiotic, along with probiotics. Your knowledge is remarkable. I am a very picky eater and can’t follow the diet to form, but with the changes I have made I can really feel the difference. I have already lost about 8 pounds and feel more energy, sleeping better. Would definitely recommend your products and knowledge.
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
This stuff is definitely an acquired taste but once you get used to it, it really isn’t bad. I does not dissolve in water and I don’t have a shaker bottle so I have been improvising and funneling it into a regular water bottle and shaking it up. This has worked for me so far. On the second day of drinking this I was handed one of my favorite chocolate truffles at work. I bit into it like usual and I paused. It didn’t taste amazing to me anymore like before and I almost spit it out. I definitely don’t find myself craving sweets all day long like I used to before so I really like it so far and will keep taking it.
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.
I am not a supplement taker but after taking this on a daily basis for the last 3 weeks I am getting full faster, my cravings are much lower, and my mood has been happier. I haven’t seen too much in weight loss yet but I haven’t worked out more or changed my diet too much yet. I have taken out some high lectin foods though. I am very excited to see the long term effects especially after introducing more exercise to my lifestyle!
I've taken an excellent probiotic for several years and was feeling fine, but I was still bloated and sluggish after any meal. Adding this Prebiotic to my daily regimen has changed my life. No more bloating or sluggishness. Things just seem to be digesting the way they should. I'm also avoiding the nightshades and lentils as advocated by Dr. Gundry, and belly fat seems to be melting away. I'm sold.
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!!
I started my journey with it on Monday and was doing pretty good. I was scared I would not be able to drink it because I have sensitivity to certain textures but had no issues with that. It has an earthy taste that I have gotten used to. Unfortunately my great aunt passed away on Wednesday which meant a 9 hour drive to and from for the funeral. My meal plan was followed as best I could, but am starting again today so I cannot accurately speak to full benefits yet.
