Gut Health

Key Enzymes, Antioxidants & Short-Chain Fatty Acids for Optimal Health


Just Thrive Probiotic is the best probiotic on the market for many reasons. Not only is it a higher quality probiotic than yogurt or other probiotic capsules you might find at the drugstore, but the strains in Just Thrive Probiotic also provide additional health benefits. Our probiotics provide your body with key enzymes and increase short-chain fatty acid production, too.

Key Enzymes from Just Thrive Probiotic

Just Thrive Probiotic contains a strain of good bacteria that produces, among many helpful compounds, an enzyme called nattokinase. Nattokinase has been shown in scientific studies to help with some of the symptoms of heart disease. This enzyme acts as a natural blood thinner and can help break up harmful blood clots. It can also help lower your blood pressure, improve your circulation, and help with some of the effects of cardiovascular problems like stroke, peripheral artery disease, and deep vein thrombosis.

Nattokinase is also used to help treat conditions like fibromyalgia, endometriosis and uterine fibroids, and Alzheimer’s Disease. With so many health benefits, you can easily see how beneficial it would be to incorporate nattokinase into your diet. However, when taken in pill form, most nattokinase won’t make it through the first stages of digestion to your gut where it can be absorbed. When nattokinase is produced directly in your gut by the good bacteria in Just Thrive Probiotic, it’s easily absorbed by your body, where it can be used to support your health.

Just Thrive Probiotic and Antioxidants

The probiotics in Just Thrive also produce antioxidants, including powerful carotenoids. Unlike other antioxidants that you may eat in foods or take in a pill form, the antioxidants produced by the probiotics are quickly absorbed by your body. Once they’re in your gut, the probiotics will continue to produce antioxidants for you to absorb. Antioxidants can help your body fight oxidative stress and other processes that are involved in aging, inflammation, and other diseases.

Health Benefits of Short-Chain Fatty Acids

The probiotic strains in Just Thrive Probiotic are also unique because they cause an increase in short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) production. These compounds, such as acetate, butyrate, and propionate, are then absorbed by your body, where they create positive effects on your health. SCFAs can be beneficial for many reasons, including helping you increase your fat burning metabolism, aiding with blood sugar regulation, lowering cholesterol, and even managing insulin sensitivity.

One of the major hurdles to losing weight is overcoming the feeling of being hungry. If you’ve looked into weight loss strategies, you’ve probably seen many tips to help you curb your appetite so you don’t overeat. One of the SCFAs produced by the probiotic in Just Thrive, acetate, has been shown to help reduce appetite in scientific studies. Acetate causes your body to release hormones that make you feel full.

The SCFA butyrate can also help you lose weight and burn body fat. Mice that were fed extra butyrate ate fewer calories and had higher metabolic rates, which both led to fat loss and weight loss. Butyrate also helps reduce inflammation in the gut, gives the cells in your colon the energy they need to survive, and can help reduce the symptoms of diseases like Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.
