Move Over, Probiotics: How MicroFood Made My Gut Feel Better

**Disclosure: I was provided with a 30-day supply of ISOThrive for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed here are my own.**

Does your digestive system ever feel… off? Do you ever get constipated? Have acid reflux? Confession time: I do! Lately I’ve been pounding the probiotic yogurt to try to feel more like myself, but no dice.

So I partnered with ISOThrive, a gastroenterologist-endorsed, bacterially fermented microFood  ‘pre’-biotic—to try out a new solution for digestive health, and to share a little bit about their philosophy. And let me tell you, this has been so eye-opening. I have learned so much about nutrition and digestion!

ISOThrive -

First: I learned why those probiotic yogurts never made me feel any better—the bacteria they were touting never made it to the part of my gut where they were needed! MicroFood feeds the bacteria that are already in your gut, but aren’t getting the nutrition they need. Brilliant, right?

Here’s what else I learned about what microFood can do:

1. Go where probiotics can’t
Most probiotics are neutralized in our stomachs and never make it to our lower digestive tract. To heal GI issues, the whole digestive system has to be re-balanced. A daily dose of fermented microFood like ISOThrive fuels the good bacteria to tackle the organisms that cause acid reflux, constipation, bloating, and gas.

2. Rebalance our diets the ancient way
Most modern diets lack nutrients to feed our “good” bacteria—more particularly, a very specific type of microFood that our ancestors got by eating lots of fermented vegetables or sourdough breads made from heirloom wheat. ISOThrive adds back this bacterially fermented food to rebalance our diets and keep our bacteria happy. (And, no, the sauerkraut on your hot dog or the kimchi on your bibimbap won’t get you the the microFood you need—you’d have to eat several cups of fermented veggies every day to get the same amount of microFood in one 1/4 teaspoon of ISOThrive microFood!)

3. Prep our bodies to prevent disease
Because the modern Western diet is so deficient in specially fermented microFood, our starving “good” gut bacteria are “breaking bad”—adapting to use other energy sources (such as our gut lining), and making us sick. Fermented microFood restores this imbalance, enhancing immune function and staving off disease.

So let me tell you about my experience with ISOThrive…

I loved it! Taking it became such a nice little ritual every morning. Each serving is 1/4 teaspoon, and it comes in a little packet, so no mess at all, and so easy to take on the go! The packet says you can simply mix it with water and enjoy right away but alternately, you can just eat it directly from the packet which is what I decided to do because it tasted so good! They describe it as a “prebiotic nectar”—and that’s exactly the right phrase! It is lightly sweet and the perfect way to start each and every day.

So here’s what happened… not much, at first. I was beginning to wonder if I’d been duped. But then I noticed after enjoying ISOThrive every morning, over the next few weeks, I noticed that I started to feel so much better —constipation and gas were gone, everything felt like it was working exactly as it should be, such a relief! An pleasantly unexpected result was that I also started feeling more energetic and less hungry. The experts as ISOThrive say this can be a happy bonus of taking ISOThrive, that as your gut get balanced, the rest of your body follows suit.

Now that my 30-day trial is up, I have already ordered another immediately. It feels so good to wake up and do something great for my body!
