Solving the probiotic problem

Thousands of commercial products have "probiotic" printed on the label, but even this advertising can be misleading. A probiotic is not truly a probiotic unless the bacteria can make it to the intestine alive.

Depending on the probiotic you pick:

  • Over 99.99 percent of the bacteria may be killed off in a commercial probiotic yogurt.1
  • Over 99.99 percent of the bacteria may be killed off in a commercial Greek yogurt.1
  • Over 99.99 percent of the bacteria may be killed off in a commercial probiotic supplement.1
  • 100 percent of the bacteria remain alive in a Just Thrive® probiotic capsule.1

100 percent survival through the gastric system means 100 percent efficacy as a probiotic. 99.99 percent of the bacteria in most commercial probiotics are killed before they make it to the small intestine. Just Thrive® probiotic bacteria not only reach their destination, alive and thriving, but they then produce powerful antioxidants in the gut using a special probiotic strain. Just Thrive® contains Bacillus indicus HU36 -- a strain able to make protective carotenoids in the small intestine, including CoQ10, alpha and beta carotene, lycopene, lutein, astaxanthin, and zeaxanthin.

"At least 11 different carotenoids are found in the walls of HU36 spores," Journal of Applied Microbiology researchers confirm. Without any risk, your body may utilize Bacillus indicus HU36 as "a useful source of dietary carotenoids."4 Just Thrive® is the world's first combination probiotic/antioxidant that can provide these benefits.

Do your body a favor -- give it what it needs to Thrive

Taking a probiotic that really works can make a big difference in your health. Your body may:

    • Absorb nutrients more efficiently5,6
    • Balance mood and emotions7
    • Digest meals better (with less gas and bloating after eating)8
    • Naturally reduce carb and sugar cravings9
    • Produce more essential vitamins10
    • Resist infection and disease with strengthened immunity11

While it's important to consult your doctor with any health concerns, Just Thrive® is safe and beneficial to all members of the family! You can start supporting great gut health at a young age by mixing in a Just Thrive® probiotic capsule in different foods for children over the age of 3. Getting active probiotics into a child's gut can have a lifelong ripple effect of improved health; good gut bacteria have been proven to reduce autism-related behavior in mice and could even help prevent cavities in children.12,13

Adults and children can take one capsule of Just Thrive® per day, or as directed by a physician.

This is what it feels like to Thrive

If you're experiencing health issues or are just beginning to recover your gut health, it's best to start slow. Try one Just Thrive® capsule per day and see how your body reacts.

Take it Step by Step, aligned with The Body Ecology approach to Health and Healing:

  • You may begin to feel a difference within just two to three days as any underlying gastrointestinal discomfort subsides.
  • Your digestive system may calm, and bowel movements may become more regular.
  • This regulatory effect is especially helpful to young children who struggle with constipation.

Most Just Thrive® users report feeling much better in a short amount of time! This may look like improved energy, better sleep, and a renewed sense of well-being. After a round of antibiotics, taking Just Thrive® may be what your body needs to get your gut health back on track. Just Thrive® is a unique antioxidant-producing probiotic that can remain completely stable in the presence of an antibiotic.** Many commercial probiotics are destroyed by antibiotics, but these "good guys" hold their ground to keep the gut healthy and strong.

A living probiotic is a staple of good long-term health, but we can’t forget how a robust bacterial community in the gut can impact overall well-being. There’s a growing body of research that proves probiotics that reach the gut can benefit almost all aspects of your health, and in 2015, Dutch scientists discovered that taking probiotics for just four weeks could help you focus less on bad feelings.7

Feel better, live better. "I have been able to completely stop my [rheumatoid arthritis] medicine, and my hives have stopped. I just feel all together better, I can’t say enough about this product!" - Jen M.

5.0 Bye-Bye Leaky Gut by Marge
Since discovering I have leaky gut, meaning food particles I'm trying to digest float out of my intestines creating inflammation (thus health issues), I was thrilled to discover Just Thrive! Unknowingly, I have had leaky gut health issues for 30 years and I now use "Just Thrive" as one of my major weapons in healing! (Posted on 9/9/2017)
5.0 great! by libby
I use to take a lot of digestive enzymes but since taking this I hardly ever need them. I don't feel bloated after eating. (Posted on 8/29/2017)
5.0 Happily Thriving! by Michelle
After years of angst, BED and Just Thrive has helped me feel that I'm no longer one bite away from falling off the edge! I stay close to BED but when I go out or to other peoples homes I can relax and enjoy again, thank you! (Posted on 8/28/2017)
5.0 High Quality Probiotic by Anne
Thrive is a great product!
There are many probiotics out on the market, and it's essential to find one with proper absorption. I trust Donna Gates' expertise, and know that Thrive is a high quality probiotic. I have been doing lots of gut healing for my hypothyroidism, and getting a good probiotic on board is a key protocol. Thanks for this high quality product! (Posted on 8/28/2017)
5.0 Great product by Patricia
I was hesitant to try this particular probiotic because I have major digestive issues and intolerance to so many things. I was surprised to find that this did not cause any issues for me and actually seemed to improve my symptoms. I am reordering. (Posted on 8/24/2017)
5.0 The crown jewel of supplements by Laura
I decided to go all out for 3 months by taking all 3 digestive enzymes, both probiotics and goat milk kefir. I have not attempted to make the CV's yet, but will soon, as that is THE CROWN JEWEL OF BED FOODS. Within 30 days I realized that my typical symptoms muscle were greatly diminished and my GI health was much more regular. My colonics therapist told me to that I had the BEST CLEANSE EVER. That was my 9th cleanse. I did 8 weekly and now I do one a month. She told me " I don't know what you are doing, but keep doing it". I was elated, finally progress after soooo much hard work. I foolishly ate some processed cookies and chips. AND NOTING BAD HAPPENED !!!!! Wow, something HUGE has changed, a confirmation to me that no symptoms and able to be more flexible after 30 days, I knew my plan worked. Of course it is a combination of hard work, the BED diet, kefir, supplements, and probiotics , chelation and colonics. BUT, the last 30 days, was the BIGGEST AND FASTEST CHANGE I have seen since I started food combining, the BED and Blood Type diets. It is even more of a change than I experienced with colonics. A whole new much higher level than before. I was amazed and astonished. I really didn't think I would see that much of a difference, after all I have taken lots of different high quality supplements. I have faith in Donna's integrity and her integrity is in her products. Since Lacto and Bifi are in all probiotics of varying qualities, I am thinking the BIG BANG came from the Kefir and the Just Thrive. I do not see the strains in the Just Thrive in other supplements, so that is my best guess, but I am not a doctor, just a happy patient. Laura (Posted on 8/23/2017)
