Gut Mate Probiotics Difference
Optimal Formulation Our probiotics are formulated after consulting with top doctors and scientists with extensive research experience into many digestive and immune related ailments. Our formulation includes many superior strains not found in other probiotics.
Patented and Clinically Documented Strains Our formulation includes carefully selected resilient strains based on clinical data and proven health benefits. Please visit our web site for clinical documentation.
DNA Verified Strains Probiotic benefits are strain specific. But, most probiotics on the market only list the genus and species, but not the strain. All our probiotics are thoroughly tested and DNA verified, so you know exactly what you are putting into your body. Ex:-genus=Lactobacillus, species=plantarum, strain=DSM 6595
Strain Diversity Formulated with a wide variety of probiotics. It includes Lactobacilli, Bifidobacteria, Enterococcus, Pediococcus, Lactococcus, and Streptococcus to help restore your gut microbiome. Our formulation provides both high strain diversity and optimal balance of CFU count for each strain.
The human gut is a host to an incredible diversity of bacteria, fungi and other microbes, collectively known as the gut microbiome. Genetic diversity in nature is widespread and it is the underpinning of a healthy ecosystem. Diversity in probiotic strains in your gut is just as important to your digestive and immune health.
Gentle on the Stomach Probiotics released all at once may intensify digestive discomfort and produce symptoms such as bloating, gas, and occasional diarrhea. Our Probiotics are released slowly and evenly along the entire intestinal tract over an 8-10 hour period
Superior Delivery, Superior Performance
Patented BIO-tract® Technology Probiotics are live microorganisms. When you take them in adequate amounts they can have big benefits.But to be beneficial, probiotics have to survive the stomach acid and reach your intestinal tract alive. Without protection most don’t survive the acidic environment of your stomach. BIO-tract® is a unique probiotic delivery system patented in over 31 countries. BIO-tract® protects probiotics from stomach acid on their journey to and through your intestinal tract. It provides optimal release of live organisms throughout the digestive tract, in both small and large intestine.
Benefits of BIO-tract® technology
Protection from stomach acid
Controlled intestinal release
Enhanced dose consistency
Extended shelf-life stability
Probiotics released all at once may intensify digestive discomfort and produce symptoms such as bloating, gas, and occasional diarrhea. To prevent these symptoms, BIO-tract® controlled release allows probiotics to be released slowly and evenly along the entire intestinal tract over an 8-10 hour period.
“Probiotics released all at once may cause bloating & gas. BIO-tract® releases probiotics slowly over 8-10 hours.”
How it works?
When a BIO-tract® micro pearl reaches your stomach a protective gel barrier is activated. This barrier fends off stomach acid as probiotics travel to the small intestine. When they arrive in the small intestine, sustained release ensures probiotics exit the gel barrier slowly as they find their destination one spot at a time along the small and large intestine. When probiotics arrive safely they get to work by crowding out the bad bacteria and delivering powerful health benefits you need. Probiotics protect your health and BIO-tract® protects probiotics.
“Probiotics protect your health & BIO-tract protects probiotics.”
We’ve Got You Covered! Your whole gut, not just half!
BIO-tract® technology is the first system capable of delivering probiotics in a true controlled release method. The release of probiotics is controlled by a combination of erosion of the micro pearl excipients and diffusion of the bacteria from the micro pearl matrix. As the surface of the micro pearl hydrates with the fluid present in GI Tract, the polymeric matrix swells and forms a barrier to further fluid permeation. As the swollen region of the micro pearl erodes over time, and fluid penetrates progressively toward the core of the micro pearl, the bacteria within the hydrated region of matrix are reconstituted and released into the intestine. This allows for continuous release of probiotics slowly and evenly along the entire intestinal tract over an 8-10 hour period.
“BIO-tract® releases probiotics slowly & evenly along the entire intestinal tract!”
BIO-tract® vs Standard Capsules
The distinct regions of a biotract micro pearl provide protection against dramatic osmotic stress experienced by probiotics during the process of reconstitution. As a Bio-Tract® micro pearl moves down the GI tract, the fully hydrated region near the surface of the micro pearl contains reconstituted bacteria, the semi-hydrated interior contains both reconstituted and dormant bacteria, and finally the unhydrated core of the micro pearl contains wholly unreconstituted, lyophilized bacteria. This contrasts with the dramatic change in osmotic pressure experienced by probiotics explosively released from immediate and delayed release capsules. The physiological effects of such a sharp change in osmotic pressure may lower their viability during reconstitution.
“Distinct regions of a BIO-tract® micro pearl protects probiotics from dramatic osmotic pressure changes!”

This seems to have helped a bit not completely but good.
Only 4 stars because you shrunk the pearl size. Should of kept it the same.
I have tried many probiotics over the years in an attempt to achieve digestive health which has been a lifelong issue. This is the only product that has worked for me. It works consistently without any side effects (some probiotics have caused hives and other discomfort) or bloating. It is very easy to swallow. I highly recommend it.
As someone who has struggled forever with dpgut issues, I feel amazingly fortunate to have discovered this product. For me it has been life changing!
I hate yogurt, kimchi or kombucha. This limits my options for repopulating my gut with good and beneficial bacteria. I am aware of the benefits of taking probiotics, but could not muster the courage to consume probiotic rich foods. I am glad I found Gut Mate, I love the micro-pearls. This is exactly what I needed.
I had no idea that the digestive tract is the body’s largest immune organ. When I found out about that, I wanted to address my frequent bouts with illnesses. I looked into probiotics to fortify my digestive tract and came across Gut Mate. I noticed that Gut Mate has Lactobacillus plantarum. Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus strains that are clinically proven to support the immune system. I started taking them and I have not been sick since I started(3 months), something is working.
Started using it after an intense antibiotic treatment to replenish gut bacteria. Took 3 pills a day. It works. My GI symptoms are gone!
I am perpetually sick. Being around young grandchildren most of the day does not help. I started using this product out of despair and it feels like it helped boost my immunity. I have had some sniffles since I started taking this probiotic but did not end up sick. Life is good.
I bought Gut Mate probiotics as a hostess gift for Thanksgiving and my sister-in-law sent me a thank you note and that is high praise.
Great product and Excellent customer support Posted by Patricia M on 12th Feb 2020 I have been using Gut Mate for about 2 months now and I can definitely feel the difference. I started with 1 pill a day for the first 2 weeks, then I increased the dosage to taking 2 pills a day. The biggest benefit I have found is that I have not had any bloating issues. That alone is worth it! And thank you Chris for your help! One of the best customer support experiences I have had in a long while. And I really appreciate you taking the time to explain how how your probiotics convert fiber into useful SCFAs for my colon. I had no idea. I thought eating fiber is only for keeping me regular, little did I know probiotics actually eat the fiber and covert them into these extremely important SCFAs that keep me healthy. Based on your recommendation I purchased MSPrebiotic fiber as well. I love it. Thank you! Patricia
I have tried everything to address my leaky gut issue. From herbal supplements to eliminating certain foods causing digestive issues. They help for a while but nothing seem to completely address it. Finally a naturopath recommended a very specific probiotic called Lactobacillus plantarum 6595 which is proven to reduce gut permeability. I researched to find a good quality product that included this strain. I narrowed it down to Thorne’s FloraPro and Gut Mate probiotics. As I was comparing both, I realized that Gut Mate probiotics has 7 billion CFU (colony forming units), while Thorne FloraPro has only 1 CFU. Gut Mate has 19 more beneficial probiotic strains, while Thorne FloraPro only has 1 strain. I assumed that the pill size might be large because of higher CFU and strain count. I was pleasantly surprised that it was only 8 mm in size. So, I went ahead and purchased Gut Mate probiotics. I have been taking them for a few months and I feel better, no gas or bloating. I feel more active, I am able to eat foods (gluten and dairy) that I did not do well with in the past. My bowel movements have been regular and my skin is clearer. I will be ordering more soon.
I suffer from chronic constipation and at a hemorrhoids. I have used Metamucil, psyllium husk, prune juice, increasing water intake etc but to no avail. I stumbled upon Gut Mate probiotics at a friend’s house and popped a pill. The next day’s bathroom visit was not as painful. So I decided to give it a shot. I do not remember the last time I felt pain free while sitting on the toilet. My stools look normal, pass smoothly and the hemorrhoid looks like it is on the path of healing. I am thankful for Gut Mate probiotics
