5 Most Commonly Asked Questions

Q #1: What is die-off and how can I minimize it's effects?

A #1: Some people do experience what’s known as “die-off” when starting Just Thrive Probiotic. Here’s the first thing you need to know:

Although occasionally unpleasant, die-off is a GREAT SIGN that your Just Thrive Probiotic is working to starve out the bad bacteria in your gut, while feeding the good bacteria. So keep going - You’re giving your gut exactly what it needs to be balanced and healthy.  

Die-off can look like temporary gastric upset, bloating, headaches, skin issues, diarrhea, irritability, etc. If you want, you may absolutely reduce your dosage to half a capsule a day, or even skip doses until these short-term effects wear off.

In our years of advising customers on how to handle die-off, we’ve found that the overwhelming majority of people who reduced their dosage did great and were grateful they didn’t stop taking it. 

Note: Die-off occurs because your body is working overtime to clean up the pathogens that have been neutralized, 

To support the size and strength of your toxin cleanup crew, you can supplement with a daily helping of dairy-free immunoglobulin G (IgG). Taking IgG helps your body flush out the bad guys and has been shown to dramatically help with die-off issues.

Q #2: Are Just Thrive products safe for babies/children and pregnant/breastfeeding moms?

A #2: Microbiome health is critical for kids as those who start with good gut health have a greater tendency to maintain it over their lives. To support their digestion and immune systems, kids can take the Probiotic daily.

The clinically-proven strains in Just Thrive Probiotic are perfectly safe for children of all ages. However - Please note that the minimum age as listed on the label is 8. This is to guard against potential choking hazards. For children under 8, the contents can be opened and mixed easily with any food or drink. There is no odor/taste and the spore bacteria is incredibly shelf and heat stable - you can even cook or bake with them!

For kids 8+: Take 1 capsule every other day for the first 1-3 weeks, working up to 1 capsule a day.

Kids under 8: Open the capsule, and mix with food or drink. (For children under 3, please consult your healthcare practitioner).

Pregnancy/Breastfeeding:  An essential part of a healthy pregnancy is keeping your microbiome balanced. 

Just Thrive Probiotic is especially important to take while pregnant and breastfeeding, as mothers pass their immunity and microbiome to their children. The spores have the ability to modulate the microbiome to help optimize the environment while supporting mom's strongest immune system. Just Thrive Probiotic can also drive optimal blood sugar levels, support your baby’s brain development, and even dictates your child’s healthy bacteria

Q #3: Do I need to refrigerate the spores or take them on an empty stomach like conventional probiotics/fermented food?

A #3: Spores vs. Conventional Probiotics: When it comes to your probiotic product, survivability makes all the difference!  

Just Thrive Probiotic is a spore-based formulation that contains 4 clinically proven effective spore strains. Thanks to nature, spores have a protective shell that allows them to bypass the gastric system unharmed, and arrive 100% alive in the intestines. Once in the gut, the spores have the ability to scan for (and crowd out) pathogens, all while supporting your beneficial strains. 

With food or without?: Most probiotics advise to take them on an empty stomach, since your naturally harsh stomach acid will destroy them because the food you eat agitates it (to allow for digestion). BUT, because Just Thrive Probiotic strains are protected by a spore shell, they survive stomach acid and utilize the food you eat as fuel. You certainly can take  Just Thrive Probiotic on an empty stomach, but we recommend taking your daily dose with food to get the most out of it.

Refrigeration: Many probiotics are so weak that they are unable to remain alive and stable on store shelves at room-temperature. But if a probiotic can’t survive in room temperature, how can it survive in the 98.6 degrees of your body?

Answer: It can’t!

Each Just Thrive Probiotic spore-based strain is in a naturally protective shell and therefore very incomparably resilient. The strains only put down their armor once they reach your intestines, so that they can get to work cleaning and encouraging your gut. 

Q #4: With Just Thrive Precision PREbiotic - do I need to take them both or can I choose one or the other?

A #4: Probiotic vs PREbiotic: 

The PRObiotic introduces gut-cleaning bacteria to your permanent microbial residents. Arriving 100% alive, the Just Thrive spore-based bacteria spend the next 3 weeks slowly traveling the intestinal tube from top to bottom, crowding out pathogens and supporting the optimal health and strength of your beneficial bacteria along the way. 

Precision PREbiotic is a strategically formulated superfood for your permanent gut residents. It contains 3 keystone PREbiotic strains that are your good gut microbes’ favorite food, and fuel and support its optimal growth. In fact, adding the PREbiotic to the PRObiotic can more than DOUBLE your population of good gut bacteria created by the Probiotic.

Even better - The PREbiotic is intelligently designed, meaning that it only feeds your probiotic bacteria and steers clear of the pathogens. After all, when encouraging your best gut health, the last thing you want to do is feed the bad guys!

Q #5: What’s the difference between natural and synthetic vitamin K2-7?

A #5: The difference comes down to two important factors: stability and potency. 

Supplemental vitamin K2 that, whether natural or synthetic, can rapidly deteriorate (up to 80% within 2 months after manufacturing in some test results). And yes, this unfortunately means that for most products, you can’t rely on the expiration date on the bottle. 

Just Thrive’s pharmaceutical-grade formula uses only the unique, trademarked form of vitamin K2 known as MenaquinGold. The 100% natural, MK-7 vitamin K2 is derived from natto (Japanese fermented bean paste), and provides long-lasting stability, superior absorbability, and GUARANTEED POTENCY!

Additionally, Just Thrive Vitamin K2-7 delivers the optimal dose of 320 mcg of vitamin K2 per day. Plus, unlike other supplements, Just Thrive Vitamin K2-7 includes crucial co-factors:

  • Vitamin K1
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc 

These three nutrients help vitamin K2 master its most important job – directing calcium to where your bones, brain and heart need it most.

K2-7 is essential if you supplement with calcium or vitamin D, as it ensures your most important nutrients are being utilized properly, and staying away from the places that can cause you harm.
