I had the opportunity to try ISOThrive, which is a gastroenterologist-endorsed, bacterially fermented microFood ‘pre’-biotic called MIMO: maltosyl-iso-malto-oligosaccharides. I’ve posted in the past about probiotic and prebiotics, which are great for our gut. This is a prebiotic, and prebiotics come mostly from foods. ISOThrive is a vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free little packet of nectar of prebiotic soluble fiber.
First let’s take a look at the digestive system. The microbiome is all of the bacteria and organisms in the gut. Good digestion happens when you are eating a good balance of foods, foods are being chewed well and the food is able to be broken down and absorbed. Fermented foods are great for feeding our good bacteria, but most people do not eat enough of these to make a positive impact. ISOThrive fills in that gap and enables a hefty serving of prebiotics to enter your gut daily.
I tried ISOThrive for a month and felt that it helped with quicker digestion and less bloating. While I take a probiotic, most probiotics are neutralized in our stomachs but don’t make it to the lower digestive tract. Fermented microFood such as ISOThrive feeds the good bacteria and helps with acid reflex, constipation, bloating and gas. I enjoyed getting some good bacteria into my system – small dose, big payoff!
While I started with dissolving the packet in water,
I ended with it on a spoon.
It is sweet and such a tiny amount (1/4 tsp) that it is easy to swallow!
Do you eat prebiotic rich foods? Do you suffer from bloating, constipation, or acid reflux?
Check out ISOThrive if you want to gain more balance in your gut!
