The Friendly Fiber Your Gut Will Love

Watch this 2-minute video to see how Friendly Prebiotics feeds your good bacteria & gets things moving, without causing bloating like normal fiber supplements.

How It Works †

1
When the probiotics (good gut bacteria) in your large intestine gobble up prebiotic fiber, they produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). These are known as a type of 'postbiotic'. And the most famous of them all is butyrate. Funny enough, these SCFAs are ultimately responsible for so many of the amazing health benefits we usually associate with probiotics. You see, it’s actually not just the friendly bacteria in the colon that contribute to gut health and overall wellness. Instead, it’s also what they produce when they feed on prebiotics! i.e. probiotic 'poop'! And Friendly Prebiotics is a great source of food for your gut bacteria to feast on to produce these precious postbiotics.
2
Once the SCFAs are created, they can help maintain intestinal integrity and mucus production. Even better, your gut barrier will let them into the bloodstream - kinda like a customs agent welcoming friendly tourists while keeping out the threats (e.g. bad bacteria, toxins & undigested food). And from there, the SCFAs can help regulate metabolism, inflammation, and even immune function.
3
But perhaps even more remarkable, this fiber may work for both constipation and diarrhea support. For example, the partially hydrolyzed guar gum (PHGG) fiber in Friendly Prebiotics, has been shown to reduce constipation by increasing bowel movements & stool moisture, while also decreasing diarrhea (both incidences and duration). A fiber that reduces abdominal discomfort like this, is quite unusual. Much of this can be attributed to the slow & gentle way these fibers ferment.

How It Helps †

checkmark
Probiotic 'poop' keeps your system running smooth - When your probiotics feast on the prebiotic fiber, they 'poop' out beneficial short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), like butyrate. And these acids help your gut wall stay strong, regulate inflammation and support immune system function. So just like you keep your car well oiled, you want to keep your GI tract filled with helpful SCFAs.
checkmark
Beautiful bowel movements - With partially hydrolyzed guar gum (PHGG) and acacia fiber together, Friendly Prebiotics has a dual function...it can both help move things along, while also reducing things coming out too fast. The perfect combination!
checkmark
Fiber without the fuss - Many prebiotic fibers in foods and supplements, cause more problems than they solve (hello bloating, diarrhea and embarrassing toots!). The main reason is because these fibers ferment too fast in your colon. To fix this, we use gentle fibers, that ferment at a turtle-like pace. Both fibers are also low FODMAP and suitable for people with IBS. Turtle power!
checkmark
Better bacterial balance - Prebiotic fiber is the fuel your probiotics use to grow & multiply. And since they compete with bad bacteria & yeast for space...more good guys, means less room for the bad guys. And that's when your microbiome is at it's healthiest. Best of all, Friendly Prebiotics is particularly good at encouraging Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus species to grow - which are 2 of the most research-backed genus of probiotics known to support a healthy digestive tract.

Both fibers are low FODMAP, plant based and most importantly to us, have many supportive studies behind them, including studies showing how gently they work for people with a sensitive gut. Something very rare in the prebiotics world.

In an industry awash with synthetic ingredients, toxins and pesticides, I love the fact that Friendly Prebiotics exclusively uses two food-based prebiotics, and most pleasingly to me, uses the organic version of both of them. If you look on the label of most other prebiotics, you won’t find anything approaching this level of quality.

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned working with my clients is that if a supplement doesn’t taste good or is hard to mix, people will stop using it. This is why I’m so happy that Friendly Prebiotics comes as a very fine powder, that stirs easily in water and has a neutral flavor.

Who It Is For
What do prebiotics actually do?
Prebiotics act like a catering company in your gut. Each day that you take this digestive health supplement, the two organic plant-based fibers provide a gourmet spread for your good gut bacteria. Then, your gut bacteria become so happy, the friendly strains multiply and help neutralize harmful strains. In addition, as they feed on the prebiotics, your probiotics produce short-chain fatty acids (a.k.a. postbiotics) that help support balance in the body. †
How do prebiotics help?
Prebiotics works by acting as fertilizer for the bacteria in your colon. Just like a healthy garden or farm needs nutrient-rich soil, the combo of guar gum and acacia gum provide a fertile breeding ground for your friendly gut bacteria to thrive. After your gut bacteria eat the “fertilizer,” they gently and slowly produce short-chain fatty acids that help maintain a healthy balance in the gut microbiome. The result is better digestion and less digestive upsets. †
How is a prebiotic different to a probiotic?
So first of all, probiotics are beneficial bacteria that live mostly in your large intestine (colon). By contrast, prebiotics are indigestible (to us) fiber, which probiotics feed on in order to survive and thrive in the gut. In short, probiotics are Ms. Pac Mans and prebiotics are the tiny energy dots that the probiotics gobble up. †
How do I know if I should take this supplement?
Do you clear out a room after eating a meal because of noxious flatulence? Does it feel like you have a baby in your belly? Do you find yourself having to run to the toilet? Do you spend too much time on the toilet? All these are signs of imbalance in your gut microbiome. Friendly Prebiotics feed probiotics and help the friendly bacteria multiply and colonize in the gut. †
When should I take Friendly Prebiotics?
We recommend taking it with or after your dinner - just mix it up in 8 fl oz or 240ml of water and you're good to go. Of course, if you can't take it then, it is okay to take at other times of day - just monitor how your body responds.
How should I take it?
If you think the only answer is “mix in water,” we’ve got some surprises for you. Friendly Prebiotics can be used in several fun, different ways. Sure, with a neutral flavor that mixes easily, you can do the usual mix in water routine. Or, you can mix it in any beverage hot or cold. Don’t be afraid to add it to your morning coffee or tea. The prebiotic fibers are not heat sensitive. Unlike throwing crabs in a boiling pot of water, you’re not going to harm the prebiotics; they’re not living creatures like probiotics. Considering they’re not heat sensitive, you can also add the prebiotics to any hot or cold meal: yogurt, soup, smoothies, gluten-free baked goods, etc. Let your imagination run wild. Just make sure you allow for up to 20 seconds of stirring to completely dissolve.
How much should I take?
Start with 1 scoop at night. Each scoop provides 2.5 grams of prebiotic fiber. If you want a second scoop, take it with your breakfast or lunch.
How many servings / days supply?
Each tub contains 84 servings. A serving size is 2.5 grams (1 scoop). If you take just one scoop per day, one tub of Gut L-Glutamine will last you nearly 3 months. And of course, if you go for two scoops per day, then it will be closer to 6 weeks.
How should I store this?
Simply make room in your pantry...no refrigeration is required.
How long till I feel a noticeable difference?
When you begin taking prebiotics they act as an immediate fuel source for the bacteria in your gut. Naturally this increases fermentation and if you have initially still have an imbalance of good vs bad bacteria, you may experience some more gas or bloating than usual. But these symptoms usually clear up after a few days. The benefits of taking prebiotics can be felt within 2-4 weeks of adding prebiotics to your daily routine.
Does it contain gluten, dairy or soy?
No. Plus, it is 3rd party verified gluten, dairy and soy free.
Can I take Friendly Prebiotics with other Essential Stacks products?
Yes, it especially pairs well with our probiotic supplement, Smart Probiotic.
Can children take Friendly Prebiotics?
We like to err on the safe side when it comes to children. So please consult with your child’s healthcare provider to determine if prebiotics are okay for them and what the appropriate dose would be.
Can pregnant or nursing mothers take Friendly Prebiotics?
We recommend you consult your physician before using this or any dietary supplement.
Are any medical issues contraindicated?
If you have any medical issues, please consult your physician before using this or any dietary supplement.
Can I take it with my medications?
If you are taking any medications, please consult your physician before using this or any dietary supplement. Prebiotics can interfere with the absorption of certain medications which include; antidepressants, anti-epileptics, penicillin, digoxin and lithium. They may also reduce blood sugar levels which should be taken into consideration if you take diabetes medication such as insulin and metformin. In particular, Acacia can decrease the absorption of amoxicillin, an antibiotic commonly used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs), chest infections and ear infections in children. It is recommended the prebiotics (containing acacia gum) are administered 4 hours pre- or post-amoxicillin.
