Updated: Feb 18, 2023

As if the kiss doesn't say enough, discover how Kristine really feels about Gundry MD PrebioThrive. Plus get her top 5 recipes featuring this prebiotic supplement.

What is PrebioThrive?

PrebioThrive is a prebiotic supplement from Gundry MD that supports gut health naturally by encouraging a flourishing gut flora — your body’s own good gut bugs — without the need for probiotics.

PrebioThrive has earned a top spot among my most loved Gundry MD supplements for a few reasons. Its potent blend of prebiotic ingredients and a combination of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber make it great for the digestive system.

But that’s not the only reason I love PrebioThrive. The fiber-rich formula promotes good gut bacteria and keeps things moving. I’m talking about bowel movements. If you’re struggling with regularity or firm stools, then this is your supplement. I know many of you are excited to hear that!

Moving from the bathroom to the kitchen, let’s talk about taste, or should I say lack thereof? PrebioThrive is unflavored, which means I can make it taste like anything I want. As a recipe creator and blogger, I can appreciate that. I’m always developing new recipes for my lectin free followers to enjoy. Keep reading and I’ll share five of my original recipes featuring this beneficial prebiotic supplement.

Here’s the Skinny on How PrebioThrive Promotes Gut Health

Gut health is so important for so many reasons. As Hippocrates theorized, disease begins in the gut. And I’m a walking, breathing testament to this. If you’ve been following my story, then you know I have struggled with hideous looking psoriatic fingernails for years. It wasn’t until I realized that my leaky gut was to blame, that I was able to turn my psoriatic disease around.

I committed to a lectin free lifestyle, and incorporated some of the Gundry MD supplements into my plan. PrebioThrive is one I love because it quickly promotes the growth of good bacteria in the gut needed for digestive health without the need for bacteria probiotics. I think we all share the desire to heal from the inside out don’t we? The best way to heal the gut and promote digestive health is to feed those gut bugs. I use to pop probiotics with every meal. But, now that my leaky gut is gone thanks to this prebiotic supplement, I don’t need to ingest as much good bacteria. They’re already down there alive and well. While everyone's results are personal, I do recomment this supplement.

How Fast Did I See Results?

Within one week of my gut-healing regimen, I saw noticeable improvement. Your results may vary, but this is my personal experience. When I started, I had inflamed and scaly skin around my fingernails, weak and pitted fingernails, and eight of my cuticles had disappeared causing the base of those nails to be exposed. After one week, the red, inflamed skin calmed down. Within a month, the skin around the nails looked smooth and healthy. Within 3 months, my nail strength improved. After about a year, I saw signs of cuticles. And today,I have ten healthy cuticles and 10 pretty nails I can paint and not be ashamed of.

My psoriatic nail story started in the gut. And it ended in the gut. I hope it works for you. I'd love to hear your stories with this prebiotic supplement in comments below.

PrebioThrive Starts With Good and Potent Ingredients

Your gut microbiome feeds on dietary fiber. And the carefully selected ingredients in PrebioThrive are some of your gut buddies’ favorite things to eat.

PrebioThrive Makes it Easy to Get Your Daily Dose of Gut-healthy Ingredients

Gut-healthy ingredients can be hard to find. Chasing around from health store to health store trying to buy agave inulin, guar gum, galacto oligosaccharides and psyllium husk can be a day’s work and tank of gas. Or you could just have a scoop of PrebioThrive. It’s all in there.

Organic acacia gum, organic agave inulin, organic flaxseed, galacto-oligosaccharides and organic guar gum are the effective ingredients. They work together to feed your gut bacteria, each at its own pace of digestion to sustain your gut flora. And take my personal journey as an example. Feeding and maintaining good bacteria in your gut daily, and say goodbye to leaky gut and the problems that go with it.

What Do You Get for Your Money With This Supplement?

The price of Gundry MD supplements may give some people sticker shock. To help with that, I’m sharing my Ambassador’s discount with you below. But, first, let me explain how other supplements compare in quality to PrebioThrive and what we get for our money.

I'm just offering you a way to get them cheaper. And I know what works for me.

Are Reports of Bloat and Gas as PrebioThrive Side Effects True?

For me, the PrebioThrive side effects are low to non-existent. I have heard some complain of cramps and horrible gas. And I’m sure they’re not making it up. But let me tell you how to avoid such unpleasantries.

Ease into this supplement. Gundry MD supplements, including PrebioThrive, are potent. Every ingredient gives your gut bugs something to gnaw on. They’re going to be very busy down there, especially if they’re new to this whole gut-healing process. If they’re not used to a lot of prebiotic fiber, then start small. On week one, use one-fourth scoop daily. On week two, use one-half scoop daily. And so on, until you can tolerate the recommended daily dose or the dose that works for you. Find your happy amount and stick with it. Once you prime the pump, there’s no gas. And you’ll find your bowel movements are regular as they should be.

PrebioThrive Gets Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Up From Me

When I take everything about PrebioThrive into consideration, what’s not to love? I mean it’s chock full of gut-friendly ingredients, it’s not full of soy or rice, or other starchy fillers, it’s potent, it’s a great value especially when you use my Ambassador’s discount, and it does what it says it does. It works! And the fact that I can bake with it and make amazing recipes using it as the main ingredient is a BONUS!

So now that you’ve read my review of PrebioThrive, let’s have some fun with recipes featuring this prebiotic supplement.

Starbucks offers a salted caramel mocha frappuccino on their menu, but guess what? A 16- ouncer contains 69 grams of sugar! Shame on you, Starbucks!

I've created this drink to taste like the frozen drink from the big-name coffee shop. But the LFG version has a lot more to offer by way of nutrition.

This prebiotic spice cake an easy treat that's made in a mug and utilizes the fibers in the Gundry MD supplement as the flour. Prebiotic fibers like acacia fiber, inulin, and galacto oligosaccharidges help your gut flora thrive. All that aside, the cake is also very flavorful, moist and airy.

We're going to use a combination of cinnamon, ginger, and clove for the spice cake. Did you know, gram for gram CLOVES have the highest concentration of polyphenols of any food?

To get a bit scientific here, polyphenols are what's known as secondary metabolites, which means they are organic compounds produced by bacteria, fungi, or plants which are not directly involved in the normal growth, development, or reproduction of the organism. Polyphenols play another necessary role in the plant's well-being. They defend their plants against ultraviolet radiation or aggression by pathogens. In the last decade, there has been a lot of focus on the health benefits of dietary plant polyphenols as antioxidants.

Epidemiological studies and associated meta-analyses strongly suggest that long term consumption of diets rich in plant polyphenols offer protection against development of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis and neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's for example. That said, I've been sprinkling ground cloves on my baked sweet potatoes, coffee, and making lots of these prebiotic spice cakes.

Okay, let's make this comforting cake.

The Recipe

LFG Prebiotic Spice Cake

1 Scoop Gundry MD PrebioThrive

1 T Vanilla Grassfed Collagen

1 T Olive Oil or Ghee

1 Pastured Egg

1 T Erythritol Granules

1/4 t Baking Soda

1 Tiny Pinch Salt

1/4 t Ground Cinnamon

1/4 t Ground Ginger

1/4 t Ground Clove

Step 1: Mix Ingredients

In a large mug, whisk all cake ingredients until very smooth.

Top with a dollop of organic heavy whipped cream and another shake of ground cloves. Absolutely delicious and nutritious! ENJOY!


#2 Lemon Cream Prebiotic Milkshake

A creamy, lemony milkshake that’s good for your gut as it incorporates Gundry MD PREBIOTHRIVE, yogurt, lemon juice, and natural collagen. Make it!

My lemon cream prebiotic milkshake is so tasty you'll forget you're feeding your gut bugs! This creamy milkshake is made with Gundry MD's amazing PrebioThrive. It's a great supplement that you should be taking every day because it has lots of prebiotic fiber to help support the growth of good bacteria in your gut.

We'll use fresh squeezed lemon juice, plain coconut yogurt, grassfed collagen, and vanilla flavored stevia drops to give this milkshake it's unique lemon cream flavor. It ends up tasting a lot like the lemon pound cake from Starbucks without all the sugar and gluten.

As a Gundry MD Ambassador, I hear some folks attest that the PrebioThrive is not their favorite of the drink mixes. Unlike Vital Reds and Primal Plants, which have deliciously sweet fruity flavors, PrebioThrive is unflavored. But if you ask me, that's the the best part about this supplement. You can make it whatever flavor you want.

I see some people adding avocado and chocolate, and chilling it in the fridge to it to make a pudding-like dessert. That is delicious, but I want something NOW! So I came up with this lemon cream milkshake that's incredibly fast and easy to make. And it's so creamy and lemony sweet. My gut bugs get so excited when it's time to have our daily prebiotics — and, now, so do my taste buds!

If you don't have PrebioThrive, you can get it with my personal discount by using this link. Buy in quantities to save money, or subscribe and save even more. But this link will give you the best price possible on any given day on Gundry MD products.

Okay, let's make this delicious and gut-healthy milkshake!

The Recipe

LFG Lemon Creme Prebiotic Milkshake

8 oz. Water

1/4 C Plain Coconut Yogurt

1 Scoop Gundry MD PrebioThrive

1 T Lemon Juice

1 T Grassfed Collagen

5-6 Drops Vanilla Stevia

1/4 C Ice Cubes

Step 1: Blend Ingredients

In a blender (I like Vitamix), add all ingredients. If you have vanilla flavored grassfed collagen sweetened with stevia, you can skip the stevia drops. Blend the bajeezus out of the mixture on high for 30 seconds until very frothy. I add just enough ice to make the milkshake cold, but not slushy.

Pour into a tall wine glass. ENJOY!


#1 Prebiotic Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chocolate chunk cookies made with Gundry MD PrebioThrive have the goodness of prebiotic fibers and dark chocolate for a gut-friendly, heart-healthy treat.

These chocolate chip cookies are my most popular recipe made with PrebioThrive. And they taste as good as they look. They're sweet, buttery, crispy on the edges, chewy on the inside with bursts of dark chocolate goodness throughout. But there's something very special about these chocolate chip cookies. They're made with Gundry MD PrebioThrive as the flour. That means not only are they a sweet treat, but they're also good for your gut.

PrebioThrive is one of my favorite Gundry MD supplements because it's unflavored. UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES! PrebioThrive is a combination of proven prebiotics that help support digestive health by feeding your gut bugs. Acacia fiber, inulin, and oligosaccharides are all great prebiotic fibers that pass easily through your upper digestive tract and force your lower intestine and bowel to ferment the fibers, in turn growing your microbiome. HAPPY GUT BUGS!

So when you make these prebiotic chocolate chip cookies, not only are you pleasing your taste buds, but you're feeding your gut bugs at the same time. And because they're made with dark chocolate, you are also treating your heart to a healthy dose of flavonoids. Flavonoids, particularly, flavonols, in dark chocolate are proven to lower the risk of heart disease. And studies show dark chocolate reduces the risk of insulin resistance and high blood pressure in adults.

Now that we know what these chocolate chip cookies can do, let's make them.

Hi Rick, did you take a full scoop? Wondering if you reduce the amount to find the desired effect. This supplement is very potent and I find many take less than directed.


I tried it and it bound me up instead of helping with regularity so I stopped using it. I didn’t have any bloating or gas issues though.


Yes, make a smoothie! That’s why I created all the recipes with it. It’s better in recipes than used as directed.


One more doesn't seem to dissolve well in cold water. Any suggestions?


Thanks for your response!! I will reduce and push through!!
