Cons: Probiotics and prebiotics may cause stomach discomfort and allergic reactions in some people
Co-founder Jamie Morea started Hyperbiotics after suffering from a terrible parasite infection. This caused her to thorougly research the importance of the gut and microbiome. She says "all health begins in the gut." Her company developed a patented technology that claims to have the most "survivable" strains of probiotics. Hyperbiotics cares about mother earth and actively participates in a carbon offset program that supports the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve.
Prebiotics (Fiber) support the health of beneficial gut bacteria and research indicates that taking prebiotics along with minimum daily serving of probiotics (10 billion CFUs) supports digestive and immune system function [1, 2, 15].
Probiotics are commonly added to supplements for digestive and immune support, and they are often recommended when people are experiencing diarrhea due to antibiotics [3-5]. Similarly, probiotics are frequently suggested for people who frequently experience intestinal problems due to issues that are related to the improper digestion of food or nutrients .
Research has demonstrated that prebiotics (e.g.,) enhance the growth and activity of probiotics. Probiotics also improve the body's ability to combat microorganisms (e.g., Candida) as well as the body's response to allergens, especially cat and dog hair, pollen, and dust mites, by thickening the viscosity of the airway's mucosal lining and disrupting the production of pro-inflammatory proteins .
Probiotics help support heart health by improving the body's ability to degrade cholesterol as well as increasing nutrient absorption, which subsequently enhances weight control [13, 14]. Probiotic supplementation also supports optimal hormone levels and in doing so supports overall health and weight management .
White bean extract helps support weight control and is a healthy source of carbohydrates that the body absorbs slowly .

Prebiotics (Fiber) provide nutrients that enhance the growth and activity of probiotics (healthy gut bacteria) [1, 15]. Probiotics in combination with prebiotics support proper digestion and an active lifestyle by increasing the number of good bacteria in the gut . This targets digestive issues that may cause bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, etc.; all of which may lead to decreased physical activity [1, 7]. Similarly, probiotics release enzymes that disrupt the growth and activity of harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi (Candida), or viruses which can also cause illnesses or infections that subsequently reduce activity levels [1, 7, 9-11].
In addition, probiotics enhance the body's ability to absorb nutrients (e.g., Vitamin C, sodium), which are known to boost energy levels [1, 7, 12].
Furthermore, probiotics improve respiratory health by increasing the thickness of the protective mucus that lines the airways . This causes harmful invaders to become trapped in the mucus and excreted before they can initiate an illness. Probiotics also stimulate the production of natural killer cells and white blood cells that target infection-causing invaders that would otherwise lead to infections [10, 11]. Improved respiratory health due to probiotic supplementation is associated with heighted physical performance .
Furthermore, clinical research indicates that probiotics support heart health by promoting the breakdown of cholesterol, triglycerides, and body fat in obese individuals and influencing the way cholesterol is absorbed in the gut [13, 14].
Probiotic supplementation also targets stress-induced immune system problems as well as hormonal imbalances, the latter of which helps promotes optimal health and weight control .
White bean extract supports weight control by providing a source of slowly-absorbed carbohydrates that reduces the appetite in between meals and it disrupts the activity of alpha-amylase, which is an enzyme that increases hunger by breaking down carbohydrates rapidly .
