Your microbiome, the balance of bacteria in your body, is one of the most precious health-giving resources any of us have.

It is responsible for the healthy functioning of many bodily and mental processes. A good quality probiotic can help to keep it in good condition, replenishing and feeding helpful bacteria, tipping the balance away from harmful bacteria.

Yourbiology Gut+ is one of the best probiotics on the market. Its formation is highly intelligent, the quality is superlative, and it is designed specifically to deliver its helpful, health-giving bacteria to exactly where they need to be (which is more than can be said for most other commercial probiotics).

Today, I’ll deliver a full assessment and verdict of this probiotic in our Yourbiology Gut+ review.

Our Verdict On Yourbiology Gut+

Yourbiology Gut+ wins out over its competitors in a couple of crucial ways.

Firstly, it’s a very solid probiotic formula with four strands of top shelf probiotics delivered in generous quantities.

Secondly, and most importantly, it is specifically designed to resist stomach acid, thus delivering its payload intact to the intestines, where it is needed the most, with high quality prebiotic fiber to feed it.

This means that, unlike its competitors, the good quality probiotics it has to offer are not wasted. They go exactly where they are needed to do exactly what they need to.

About Yourbiology Gut+

Yourbiology’s Gut+ is a particularly clever probiotic supplement. It overcomes some of the issues that often plague other probiotics. Namely, most probiotics are rich supplements that actually do very little – the vast majority of the probiotics they contain don’t actually make it to your gut. They therefore don’t do what they are meant to do.

This is because they don’t contain the protection they need to make it through the digestive system intact – your stomach acid will destroy them long before they can get to work.

This can do far more than simply making the probiotic useless, however. The early digestion can lead to gastrointestinal and gut issues like constipation, gas, bloating, lethargy, and exacerbated brain fog.

This is where Youbiology’s Gut+ comes into its own. As they state on their website, ‘it’s not about throwing a bunch of random bacteria at your gut hoping it’ll do the job’. Rather, we want a high quality formula designed to make it through the stomach’s harsh environment.

Yourbiology use some of the best, most highly clinically justified bacteria strains with the right amount of CFUs (colony forming units). They combine the perfect mix of top shelf bacterial strains in their Gut+ formula that will be near guaranteed to support your overall gut health.

This mix includes four live, potent good gut bacteria strains. Between them, they deliver 40 billion CFUs to the gut. None of this is degraded thanks to the shielding they put in place – the patented MAKtrek® Bipass Technology.

MAKtrek® Bipass Technology is created using brown seaweed that is proven to shield the bacteria from your stomach’s acidic environment. It degrades through the digestive system in time to release the good bacteria strains in the small intestine.

In addition, it gives you a good dose of prebiotic fiber. This should help to nourish probiotic bacteria as it reaches your small intestine, giving it every chance of blossoming and doing what it needs to do.

How Yourbiology Gut+ Works

As above, Yourbiology Gut+ is designed to overcome a significant issue that most probiotics face. It is a high quality probiotic formula that also promises to actually make it into your gut.

But why does this matter?

The digestive system is something of an ecosystem. It hosts more than five hundred different microbe forms which are vital to supporting your health and wellbeing. However, these microbes can often exist understrength, which will inhibit their efficacy and thus your overall health.

Probiotics boost the intestinal microbiota. In turn, this should have several health benefits (see below).

Probiotic supplements can also improve the gut’s inhibit pathogenic actions. These actions include the creation of destructive antimicrobial compounds, immunomodulation, and simple competition for often scarce resources like space and nutrition, among others.

Yourbiology Gut+ should help in all the ways in which a good quality probiotic supplement should. It should improve your gut health and flora, and your microbiome more generally. The benefits can be profound.

For starters, this will improve your immune health, allowing you to fight off illness and infection far more ably. Your ability to produce important vitamins and minerals will also improve, as will your ability to develop healthy intestinal cellular components.

A healthy microbiome can help you to better manage your stress levels. This is due to the digestive tract’s intimate relationship to serotonin, your body’s stress hormone. The majority of your serotonin is actually housed in your digestive tract. Having a healthy, balanced array of gut flora alongside a healthy digestive tract can help in supporting appropriate serotonin regulation, which in turn means better stress relief.

Partly because of this, and partly in tandem to this, improved gut flora and the use of probiotic supplements can help to regulate blood pressure levels. A good probiotic can help to keep your blood pressure within healthy bounds, which will lower your risk of developing a range of chronic illnesses.

Your stomach and gut health are also linked to your mood. Or, rather, your mood is in part dependent on your gut health. There is strong clinical evidence suggesting that probiotics can help to ease symptoms of depression.

A healthy microbiome has also been linked with improved energy and focus, allowing you to live your best life with enough energy to get through the day.

There are also some markedly physical benefits to be gained from probiotic use.

One of the main ones comes from a probiotic’s ability to better control gas and bloating. Gas accumulation and more general stomach discomfort can be caused by unhealthy, unbalanced gut flora.

Probiotics can improve pretty much every stage of the digestive process and have been linked to reduced bloating in part as a result. These benefits extend to the bowels, mitigating the symptoms of conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, for example. 

This digestive improvement can also be quite profound. Healthy gut bacteria aid in the creation of important substances involved in nutrient uptake and absorption. Subpar gut flora will hinder your ability to be properly nourished, which can have serious health consequences both in the long and short term.

In addition, your gut’s symbiotic bacteria generate important substances that you will need to be and remain healthy. This process is greatly improved with a digestive system that is both functioning optimally and managing to stay relaxed and balanced.

However, as above, not all probiotic supplements make it to the gut. Many are destroyed in the stomach long before they can actually do any good. Plenty also starve – as we have seen, resource scarcity can lead to diminished gut flora. This is where Yourbiology Gut+ comes into its own.

Its MAKtrek® Bipass Technology will get the probiotics to your gut, where it should flourish with the help of the prebiotic fiber provided in the formula.

This combination makes Yourbiology Gut+ one of the most effective, most helpful probiotic supplements going.

Yourbiology Gut+ Ingredients

This is where the magic happens. A combination of four high quality, profoundly useful probiotic strains with a decent prebiotic fiber and enough protection to make it through to your gut unmolested make Yourbiology Gut+ really very formidable.

The probiotic blend is made up of bifidobacterium lactis, lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus plantarum, and lactobacillus paracasei. Each of these plays a key role in improving your microbiome, whilst also uniquely aiding your gut and digestive health.

Bifidobacterium lactis is a good one with which to begin. It facilitates bowel motions, which is important for aiding the digestion of food and absorption of nutrients taken from food. It manages this by strengthening the intestinal lining whilst also sealing it, allowing it to function far more ably.

Then there is lactobacillus acidophilus, whose main use here outside of simply replenishing levels of good bacteria is its secondary ability to ease symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Far from exacerbating digestive discomfort, as many other prebiotics, this can actually be a blessed relief for IBS sufferers.

Lactobacillus acidophilus is also particularly good for women. It has been shown to promote vaginal flora balance whilst also protecting against yeast infection.

Lactobacillus plantarum is a very useful herb for those suffering with any kind of digestive discomfort. It has been shown to promote regular bowel movements, making it perfect for anybody suffering with constipation. It has also been shown to lessen gas and cramps whilst mitigating overall stomach discomfort.

Again, this could be a blessed relief for long time sufferers.

Finally, lactobacillus paracasei is a top probiotic for improving immune health. It has been linked with higher rates of immunity, allowing you to keep infection and illness at bay. It has also been linked with reduced inflammation, which, as we have seen, is one of the main long term health benefits offered by probiotics, and improved skin health.

That’s it for the probiotics. However, as we have seen, Yourbiology Gut+ offers a lot more than this, with two final ingredients that make the rest so much more worthwhile.

Bacteria are living organisms. As with all living organisms, they need sustenance. As above, one of the top reasons for poor gut flora is a dearth of resources, including nutrition. Countering this is necessary if a probiotic is to fully encourage a healthy microbiome.

This is where fructooligosaccharides come into play. It is a natural form of prebiotic fiber that should feed the gut’s probiotic bacteria. It nourishes the gut, supporting a healthy microbiome, allowing everything that Yourbiology Gut+ delivers to thrive as fully as possible. You get a decent serving of it with each portion of Yourbiology Gut+.

Then there is the MAKtrek® Bipass Technology, or maktrek® marine polysaccharide complex. This is an overly complicated way of saying seaweed, in effect. It’s an extract taken from brown seaweed that has been shown to ward against the stomach’s acidic environment. This means that the probiotics won’t be destroyed during the digestive process.

In fact, by some estimates, the maktrek® marine polysaccharide complex allows for a whopping 250 times improved survival rate and absorption for the probiotics and good bacteria that come therein than more standard products.

Does Yourbiology Gut+ Work?

Yes, Yourbiology Gut+ seems to work very well.

I’m not generally affected by digestive discomfort, IBS, or anything like that, so I can’t comment on how well it helps with these conditions (though reading customer Yourbiology reviews, it does seem to do a lot of good in this regard). However, I often struggle for energy and experience low moods. As we have seen, a good probiotic can help with both.

This was certainly my experience with Yourbiology Gut+. Within the first 3-4 days, I was experiencing a bit of an energy uptick. This became more pronounced after the first fortnight. I needed less coffee than usual, didn’t need to rely on pre-workouts at the gym, and had no energy crashes throughout the day. This is all unusual for me, so I was thoroughly delighted.

It also did help with digestive health, though my diet and lifestyle generally do a lot of heavy lifting here.

Without going into graphic detail, everything was a little… healthier than usual. I also noticed myself getting less bloated. I generally drink a couple of whey protein shakes per day, which can make things a little gassy. This all went down a great deal within a couple of weeks of starting on Yourbiology Gut+.

Immune health improves with a good probiotic. Again, my diet and lifestyle are structured to keep me pretty healthy. My immune health is generally quite good. However, I get seasonal allergies.

I’m writing this at the end of October having used Yourbiology Gut+ for a few weeks previously. Fall leaves generally set off my hay fever and I spend the whole period taking antihistamines. I didn’t have to rely on them anywhere near as much as usual this year, however, even though allergies have been pretty severe for other people.

I can quite happily chalk this up to the probiotics having their way.

Yourbiology Gut+ is easy to take, which is always a must – I can’t stand supplements that require you to take them throughout the day, as human error will always interfere and mess things up. Simply take a capsule first thing in the morning and another before bed. It couldn’t be simpler.

Evidence to support Yourbiology Gut+

Yourbiology Gut+ rests on a lot of high quality clinical research data. Each ingredient is well studied and thoroughly scientifically justified.

For example, lactobacillus acidophilus was the subject of a study published in BMC Gastroenterology. The study proved lactobacillus acidophilus’ efficacy – it revealed the proliferation of microbial metabolism and lactobacilli community composition, which will grant the health benefits it claims.

Lactobacillus paracasei, meanwhile, was looked at in a study published in the Journal of Obesity Research & Clinical Practice. This showed that it is effective at reducing body weight and abdominal fat.

A review study from the Journal of Microbiology showed that lactobacillus plantarum can improve disorders as varied as obesity, diabetes, IBS, hypercholesterolemia, and metabolic syndromes. It is also shown in the study to lead to improvements in gut health and brain function.

A study in the journal Nutrients found that fructooligosaccharides, the prebiotic fiber contained in Yourbiology Gut+, aids gut bacteria growth. The study looked at mice subjected to varying fructooligosaccharide doses over four weeks. Fecal microbiota samples taken from higher dose groups showed abundant actinobacteria, chiefly Bifidobacterium.

Finally, the marine polysaccharide complex, Yourbiology’s star player, relies on a great deal of research. A review study from the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules shows that non-starch polysaccharides originating in plants (principally marine algae and edible mushrooms) are incredibly beneficial for gut microbiota. Taken as a whole complex, it has been shown to improve survivability of the full formula by an impressive degree.


I always like to see a good probiotic enter the market. I love reviewing them and I struggle to see many other kinds of supplements that can bring such profound, holistic benefits to bear. They really can be quite incredible.

However, they often fall short, as we have seen. They are often full of good intentions, promising things that the human stomach prohibits them from managing.

This isn’t the case with Yourbiology Gut+. It promises a lot – more even than many other probiotics. The health benefits up for grabs are all sensational. However, almost uniquely, it manages to deliver on everything it says it will do.

The four probiotic strands that make up its heart are very, very good. If they make it to your intestines, they will do everything a good probiotic should do. And they should make it to your intestines because of Yourbiology’s ® Bipass Technology – the brown seaweed is helpful in itself and is almost guaranteed to survive your stomach’s acid unmolested.

The fiber finishes things off nicely. Once the probiotics get to where they are needed, they will find fertile ground on which to flourish – they will be well nourished, able to proliferate and tip the balance of your microbiome towards optimal health.

It really is a clever product. It really can serve you very well.

Our Verdict On Yourbiology Gut+

Yourbiology Gut+ wins out over its competitors in a couple of crucial ways.

Firstly, it’s a very solid probiotic formula with four strands of top shelf probiotics delivered in generous quantities.
