Just Thrive Probiotic - Learn More
Just Thrive® is the first 100% spore-forming probiotic and antioxidant supplement that arrives 100% alive to your intestines that's available in the retail market.
Just Thrive® replaces the outdated approach of “reseeding” the gut (which would be like throwing seeds in an abandoned garden and hoping they grow), and opts for the more integrative approach of “reconditioning” the gut (which would be like hiring a gardener to manage the garden, till the soil, pull out weeds, plant seeds and care for them as they grow) which removes pathogens and bad bacteria, thereby allowing good bacteria to grow and thrive, ultimately strengthening the health of your entire body and all of its systems, including immune health, digestive health, mental health, and much more. The specialized spore-based bacilli formulation of Just Thrive® Probiotic guarantees the survivability of our probiotic strains through the stomach and upper digestive system. It not only provides digestive and immune support as a potent probiotic, but also delivers powerful and necessary antioxidants to the GI tract.
Think of your gut like a garden. When you add Just Thrive® Probiotic, you’re enabling your gut to bloom into a beautiful garden of good, healthy bacteria! Our strains go in like little gardeners, removing the weeds (bad bacteria and pathogens) and actively managing the soil by fertilizing it with potent and necessary antioxidants. In the end, you have a beautiful, healthy garden of gut health that makes the rest of your body happy, from the inside out.
Why Probiotics Anyway?
The delicate balance of the body’s intestinal and digestive flora can easily be disrupted by diets high in sugar; eating too much processed or fried foods; glyphosates, chronic stress; aging; lack of sleep; medications, or exposure to toxic chemicals. If you’ve been experiencing digestive health challenges, such as occasional gas, bloating, irritable bowel or constipation, your body is letting you know its stores of “friendly bacteria” have been depleted and need to be restored.
Why Just Thrive?
There are hundreds of brands of probiotics on the market, but as you’ve probably already discovered, they are not all equal.
Just Thrive® contains a patented strain called Bacillus Indicus HU36® – bacillus strains are abundant environmental organisms which are a normal part of the human micro flora. This strain, Bacillus Indicus HU36®, produces antioxidants/ carotenoids (the nutrients that give red peppers and tomatoes their color) in your intestines where they can be best absorbed by the body, making it one of the most absorbable forms of antioxidants on the market. These spores have been successfully used to enhance digestive health in the pharmaceutical market for more than 50 years!
In addition to the healthy micro flora, antioxidants protect the body from the daily onslaught of harmful and toxic chemicals and compounds. Maintaining high levels of antioxidants in the body has been linked to lower incidences of major health issues.
And the spore strains in Just Thrive® are the only on the retail market clinically proven to heal leaky gut within just 30 days! In fact, studies have shown that oxidative stress is a major driver of leaky gut. Researchers believe that the antioxidants produced by the bacillus indicus strain (HU36) in Just Thrive® Probiotic are the “heavy hitters” in the formulation and are responsible for helping to combat the oxidative stress on the intestinal lining.
Just Thrive® is not trying to simply reseed the gut with typical “other probiotic” ingredients (like lactobacillus/bifidobacteria strains) that simply pass through the intestines and do not colonize. Instead Just Thrive® goes in to actually recondition the gut.
Once Just Thrive® enters the digestive system, it has been found to perform many critical functions, including enhancing the immune system; reducing inflammation; both increasing digestion and absorption of nutrients from food, and producing important functional antioxidants.
The strains used in Just Thrive® have been proven to survive the gastric system 100%! Once they arrive alive in the intestines, they actually have the unique ability to read the microbial environment. In fact, these strains have the ability to:
- Survive the harsh conditions of the stomach 100%
- Identify pathogenic organisms (and once they do this, they produce natural antibiotics to help kill off the bad bacteria…)
- Competitively exclude the overgrowth of opportunistic organisms
- Create compounds and nutrients to feed the good bacteria in the gut
This approach is the most effective way to achieve diversity in the gut and is why customers are seeing such dramatic results with Just Thrive® Probiotic!
Just Thrive® are gut commensal organisms, meaning they belong in the gut (and find a binding site in the intestines), and these strains have a 21-day life-cycle in the gut, while most other probiotics simply pass through like food. (Link to the garden video)
Your Body’s Own Antioxidant Factory
Studies have found that the actual absorption rate of antioxidants is lower when taken orally. With Just Thrive® however, the body becomes a super-antioxidant factory right in the digestive system – at the site where these important nutrients are most needed and absorbed!
Why are these antioxidants essential? Researchers have found that antioxidants contained in brightly-colored fruits and green, leafy vegetables help to prevent age-related diseases. However, given the prevalence of stressful lifestyles and erratic eating habits, who has time to eat the required amounts of fruits and vegetables necessary to receive the full benefits? In addition, research has shown that supplemented carotenoid-antioxidants do not survive the stomach and so absorption rates are very low.
With Just Thrive® , you get a highly effective probiotic that survives 100% and is producing significant amounts of antioxidants right at the site where they are best absorbed by the body.
Just Thrive® is the first all spore probiotic-antioxidant combination product!
Researchers discovered that the body’s naturally harsh stomach acid, which is necessary for digesting all types of foods, kills off 99.99 % of the probiotic strains in the major sources of probiotics long before those products could even get to the small intestine. Yogurts, Greek Yogurts and the majority of probiotic products on the market do not survive passage through the harsh stomach environment and end up “dead on arrival” to the intestines.
Unlike other probiotics on the market, Just Thrive® contains carefully selected strains and a proprietary formulation that ensures our probiotic can naturally survive through the stomach to get into the intestines where they colonize and produce their potent probiotic effect. These strains have not been specially engineered by enteric coating and other means – instead, they survive naturally.
A recent study comparing Just Thrive® to 1) yogurt, 2) Greek yogurt and 3) the leading probiotic brand sold in health food stores, found that Just Thrive® Probiotic was able to make it ALL THE WAY through the challenging acidic stomach digestive environment to the small intestine. There, our friendly bacteria were able to colonize for optimal digestive health and overall wellness. The challengers (yogurt, Greek yogurt and the leading probiotic supplement) did not survive the body’s harsh stomach acid and so, by definition, are NOT probiotics. In fact, the majority of products on the shelf are NOT actually probiotics; they are simply dead bacteria and do not fit the World Health Organization and accepted scientific definition of what qualifies as a “Probiotic.”
This graph shows the results of this study. All products EXCEPT for Just Thrive® have less than 0.1% survival through the stomach. Just Thrive® was the only product that showed 100% survival through the gastric system, thus providing 100% effectiveness as a probiotic.
Because Just Thrive® survives 100%, it’s able to aid digestion, support healthy bowels, produce key nutrients and antioxidants, as well as provide powerful immune support. Dead bacteria, as you can imagine, do not provide these same benefits.

Leaky Gut and Just Thrive Probiotic
More than 70% of Americans report GI problems - and this number is growing - making it clear that something isn't right with the bigger picture of "gut health" right now. Whether you suffer from occasional discomfort or leaky gut, finding the right treatment isn't easy.
Leaky gut occurs when the walls of your small intestine are damaged, allowing food particles and toxins to leak outside of the digestive tract, into the bloodstream, where they don't belong. Leaky gut can cause many symptoms that you wouldn't necessarily think were traced back to your digestive health, which is why it can be difficult to diagnose.
Leaky gut impacts a person's health by leading to increased intestinal permeability, meaning bacteria and toxins find a way to leak through the walls of the intestines. As you can imagine, it's never a good thing for these toxins and substances to get through the intestinal wall and enter your bloodstream and other places they don't belong.
Natural health enthusiasts are commonly coming together to find ways to treat leaky gut. Many of them turn to probiotics, like Just Thrive® Probiotic , that have been clinically-proven to begin healing leaky gut within just 30 days (see the study here) and a non-GMO, gluten-free diet (click here for foods to eat and avoid).
Bacillus Subtilis HU58, Bacillus Coagulans, and especially Bacillus Indicus HU36 are the most important strains for healing your leaky gut. That's why - with a simple daily dose of Just Thrive® Probiotic - you'll be giving your gut exactly what it needs to start fighting leaky gut.
What’s In It?
Just Thrive® – a 100% spore-based probiotic – has been carefully formulated with highly effective, safe and verified strains that have been licensed from Royal Holloway London University.
There are 30 capsules in each bottle of Just Thrive Probiotic. It is recommended to take one capsule daily, preferably with your largest meal of the day. Each bottle is intended to be a one month supply. Some customers elect to take 1/2 a capsule per day (mixed into food or beverage), or one capsule every other day. If you're unsure, we advise you speak to your doctor or nutritionist, and listen to your body, to help determine the correct dose for your specific needs.
Most probiotic products on the market have focused on adding more strains and higher cell counts to help boost their marketing message, yet there is no scientific evidence that having dozens of strains at very high cell counts have any benefit at all. It is far more effective to have 2-4 verified, tested, high quality strains than to have a random mix of 15-20 different strains that have not been tested and verified.
A number of published studies have shown that many of these formulations with a dozen or more strains are often mislabeled where the wrong strains are shown on the label and strains that don’t appear on the label are in the product. They create these formulations where companies simply throw in everything to make the formulation look robust. If you look at any high quality, prescription probiotic, you won’t find one with more than 2-3 strains as it’s simply not necessary and, in fact, having a dozen strains can actually hinder the effectiveness of a probiotic product.
The four strains included in Just Thrive® are:
1) Bacillus Subtilis HU58
Bacillus Subtilis has been extensively studied on a genetic and functional level. There are several probiotic products in the pharmaceutical and agricultural markets that utilize this powerful probiotic. One very interesting function of Bacillus Subtilis is its ability to produce nearly 12 strong antibiotics that are potent fighters of opportunistic and harmful bacteria. This is part of its wide use in high level feed products. Bacillus Subtilis HU58 offers Just Thrive® the ability to support the prevention of harmful bacteria growth in a variety of conditions. In addition, HU58 produces a very healthy compound called Nattokinase in your digestive tract. Nattokinase is a key compound found in the Japanese food Natto that uses Bacillus subtilis for the fermentation of soy beans. The serine protease known as Nattokinase is secreted from vegetative cells of Bacillus subtilis and has been shown to support healthy blood pressure, support healthy cholesterol levels and support healthy circulation. Along with Nattokinase, Bacillus Subtilis also produces a number of other nutrients that have systemic health benefits. In addition, Bacillus Subtilis HU58 is an extremely potent immune stimulator. It has the function of germinating in the small intestines to some degree and this offers the effect of broad spectrum immune stimulation. It has also been shown to increase the growth of your natural good bacteria.
2) Bacillus Indicus HU36
The Bacillus strain found in Just Thrive® that makes it a real game-changer in the probiotic market is Bacillus Indicus HU36 (Bacillus HU36). Bacillus HU36 is a well-studied, unique, patented strain of Gram-positive spore forming bacterium that produces a distinct yellow-orange pigmentation. The pigmentation is due to the synthesis of carotenoids, which are gastric stable, bio-accessible, and significantly more bioavailable than carotenoids from other sources. Bacillus HU36 offers Just Thrive® the most effective antioxidant probiotic on the market. Bacillus HU36 produces high levels of carotenoids such as Lycopene, Lutein, Astaxanthin, Zeaxanthin and Beta-Carotene. Along with these crucial antioxidants, Bacillus HU36 also produces quinols and essential vitamins B and K2. Just Thrive® is the first and only probiotic and antioxidant product on the market today, making it the new paradigm in probiotic therapy.
3) Bacillus Coagulans
A very well studied probiotic in the bacillus family that has a profound effect on inflammatory conditions such as IBS and Crohn’s. Bacillus Coagulans has an expanded effect of controlling these common inflammatory bowel conditions in addition to its potent immune boosting activity. Coagulans has the unique attribute of producing lactic acid and specifically the L+ optical isomer of lactic acid which has been shown to have a more profound effect on immune stimulation and gut defense than the other forms of lactic acid produced by conventional probiotics. Coagulans is also a tremendous colonizer and thus assures proper colonization of Just Thrive®, which in turn will produce the beneficial effects required. Coagulans also plays a key role in digestion of food and absorption of nutrients. In fact, coagulans can digest incoming fat to reduce the intake of cholesterol. Coagulans adds another dimension to Just Thrive® giving it a potent ability to support the anti-inflammatory systems, aid in digestion and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
4) Bacillus Clausii
This strain is the largest selling strain of probiotics in the world and is done so as a prescription drug in most countries. For the first time, this strain is made available to the U.S. dietary supplement industry and in this case, direct to you. In the prescription market, Bacillus Clausii is recommended for use during antibiotic treatment; this is due to the probiotics ability to resist damage from a variety of common antibiotics. Deadly opportunistic infections such a C.diff and H.Pylori are becoming more common among patients on antibiotic therapy as these broad spectrum antibiotics kill off many of the good bacteria and allow for such opportunistic infections. With the resistance found on Bacillus Clausii, it gives Just Thrive® a unique function of being a powerful therapy to support a healthy flora which works against opportunistic infections during antibiotic therapy.
Kids & Just Thrive Probiotic
Kids need to thrive, too! It’s so important to give kids the proper nutrition they need from the very beginning. That also means good gut health and the proper bacteria levels they need for lifelong health. And you can open up the capsules and mix the contents with food or drink – kids won’t even know it’s there since these strains are tasteless, colorless and odorless!
Just Thrive® has helped to support protocols in a variety of cases, including kids with spectrum disorders (like aspergers), bowel issues including irregular bowel movements, kids on antibiotic therapy and more.
Summary: The Best Probiotic for a Healthy Lifestyle
Just Thrive® captures the power of hundreds of thousands of years of nature’s design with a specialized bacilli formulation that guarantees survivability through the stomach and upper digestive system.
And food is not enough. A healthy diet, exercise, adequate hydration and restorative sleep are key components of a healthy lifestyle. This is because today’s model of food processing has (and continues to) drastically decreased the potency and effective nature of natural probiotic foods like kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut and miso. Today’s food production processes make the potency, efficiency and effectiveness of these natural forms of probiotics virtually negligible. To combat the sometimes adverse effects of antibiotics, birth control pills, synthetic hormones, poor dietary habits, and environmental hazards and toxins, make Just Thrive® a regular part of your nutritional arsenal.
When you make Just Thrive® a regular part of your nutritional arsenal, you’re arming and empowering your body to combat adverse effects of antibiotics, birth control pills, synthetic hormones, poor dietary habits, environmental hazards and toxins.
