So, the gut microbiome might not be a familiar subject for everyone. We get it. But we’re here to help shed some light! Check out the Q&A below to learn more about how to add BiomeBliss to a healthy diet, what makes it work, and the diverse ways it can add to your overall well-being.

  • How often should I take BiomeBliss?

    Once or twice a day.

  • How should I take BiomeBliss?

    Mix 1 scoop in about a cup of cold water for a delicious drink. It will thicken over time after mixing and if refrigerated. For additional ways to enjoy, check out our list of fun recipes.

  • What is it, and how does BiomeBliss work?

    Modern food choices frequently provide too little of the nutrients for the healthy bacteria in our gut. BiomeBliss is designed as a dietary supplement to easily supply those missing nutrients. Healthy bacteria  forage on prebiotics, converting them into new molecules called short chain fatty acids, or SCFAs, which sets off a series of events. The presence of SCFAs triggers the intestines to release hormones into the bloodstream. In turn, the hormones signal to the brain to let your body feel satisfied with the meal and that it’s time to stop eating.  These hormones also help regulate blood sugar after a meal from already healthy levels.  BiomeBliss is a prebiotic blend of natural, safe, food-derived ingredients.

  • If I already have a probiotic regimen, can I add BiomeBliss to it?

    Yes. While probiotics introduce new bacteria to the gut, prebiotics nurture and cultivate the healthy microbiome that already exists there. So, if you are already introducing new bacteria, you should make sure you’re also nourishing, shifting and expanding your entire microbiome.

  • Will I know if it’s working?

    You may have a reduced appetite and may be satisfied with less food at meal times. Some flatulence or gas is a sign that BiomeBliss is working. If you experience too much gas or bloating, decrease your serving by half for a day or two and then try the full serving. Regular bowel movements are common.

  • Can I double the servings for a greater effect?

    Taking more than two servings per day is not recommended.

  • How should I store BiomeBliss?

    Store at room temperature.

  • What effect will BiomeBliss have on my blood sugar levels?

    Clinical tests (not reviewed by the FDA) have shown improved post-meal blood sugar levels from already healthy levels.

  • Can I take BiomeBliss with metformin?

    Yes, it has been tested with metformin, and it helped the metformin inadvertent occasional GI effects. *

  • Will BiomeBliss help me to eat less?

    You may notice two things: that you feel less hungry between meals, and that you feel full after eating less food.

  • I’m on a low-carb diet and I count carbs. How many carbs does BiomeBliss have?

    Most carbs have an impact on blood sugar levels. However, there are different types of carbs, specifically fiber and the sugar alcohol, erythritol.

    The Joslin Diabetes Center puts it this way: “Fiber is a type of carbohydrate but since it is not broken down by the human body, it does not contribute any calories. Yet, on a food label fiber is listed under total carbohydrate. Does fiber have any effect on your blood glucose? Fiber does not raise blood glucose levels. The fiber in an apple or a slice of whole grain bread has no effect on blood glucose levels because it isn’t digested. The grams of fiber can actually be subtracted from the total grams of carb you are eating if you are using carbohydrate counting for meal planning.” Use 5 in your carb counting, see erythritol information for calculation details.

  • What about the erythritol in BiomeBliss?

    This sugar alcohol makes the product taste good, without adding calories or carbs. Since erythritol is a sugar alcohol, subtract all the grams from the total carbs listed. BiomeBliss has 22g of total carbs. But because it contains 9g of fiber and 8g of erythritol, the total available carbs are 5g. Use 5 in your carb counting.

  • What is erythritol?

    Erythritol is a natural sweetener, about 60 – 80% as sweet as sugar. It is a sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in pears, soy sauce, wine, sake, watermelon and grapes. After many toxicology and clinical studies, erythritol has been found to be safe for consumption as a sugar substitute, even when consumed on a daily basis.

    Sugar alcohols are NOT artificial sweeteners. In sugar alcohols, part of their structure resembles sugar and part resembles alcohol. However, there is no ethanol in sugar alcohols, so it is not the same thing as alcoholic beverages.

  • What is the wheat ingredient and why is it added?

    We wanted to and tried to make BiomeBliss gluten free.  Beta glucan from oats and barley is the most favorably clinically tested beta glucan available. We chose oats in hopes to be gluten free.  However, our oat-derived beta glucan tests positive for gluten.  The words “contains wheat” in the Supplement Facts table are added because the product may contain wheat.  The wheat might come from cross contamination due to crop rotation.

  • What is the 4th, proprietary ingredient?

    The fourth ingredient is the blend itself working in perfect harmony – clinically tested and patented for use and composition. The real innovation and the subject of our patent is the way the blend’s ingredients work with your naturally-occurring bacteria.  This “fourth ingredient” is a metaphor.  The blend is the fourth ingredient, as in, our carefully designed blend and the thought that went into it.

    There are two aspects of our product that are proprietary:  1) we have a patent on the combination as a composition and by use and 2) the preparation of the blueberry extract is a trade secret—it’s a water extract from blueberries to isolate the antioxidant polyphenols in such a way as to preserve their activity and while taking most of the sugar out

  • Why wouldn’t I just eat a bowl of oatmeal with blueberries and agave every day instead?

    If you ate a good mix of raw colored berries/fruit, oats and fermentable fiber (lentils are a good source as are many beans; the agave plant ((not the syrup)) and Jerusalem artichokes are great sources, too) then you wouldn’t need our product.  We encourage that.  Six helpings a day of fruits and veggies that include fermentable prebiotic fiber and antioxidant polyphenols would be best.  By our calculations that is about 380 calories of veggies and fruit and would cost about the same as our product.  It would take also time to prepare and consume.

    BiomeBliss isn’t just berries, oats and agave.  It is the fermentable fibers and polyphenol extracts of those ingredients – raw – with most of the sugar removed and then blended into a fashion we think will be enjoyable and easy to consume.
