Unmodified Potato Starch
With the highest concentration of resistant starch out of any other food based source, unmodified potato starch has been proven to provide numerous health benefits. The potato starch in PreBiotic+ is made from premium grade high starch European potatoes by an all natural water and filtration process.
Raw Green Banana Flour
Milled in the United States, our banana flour is made from the pulp of unripe bananas before the sugar content has developed. Raw green banana flour is extremely nutrient dense; it’s high in potassium, vitamins, minerals, and resistant starch.
Naturally found in many different vegetables, InulinFOS consists of short and long chains of fructose molecules that stimulate the growth of beneficial flora in the gastrointestinal tract, supporting digestive health and reducing blood glucose response. PreBiotic+ features Orafti ®Synergy1 InulinFOS which is made from GMO free chicory grown in Europe.
Sometimes referred to as “mushroom sugar”, trehalose is a naturally occurring sugar found in mushrooms, seeds, algae, and some drought enduring desert plants. Trehalose is only half as sweet as sucrose (table sugar), has a much lower glycemic index, and a slow digestion process. It’s added to PreBiotic+ because of its strong neuroprotective and antidepressant-like properties.
Also known as “true cinnamon”, ceylon cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar, reduce insulin resistance, and relieve joint pain. It’s also a rich source of antioxidants; just 1 teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon has more antioxidants than 8 ounces of pomegranate juice.

What are prebiotics?
You may have heard of PRObiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria found in yogurt, other dairy products, and some dietary supplements. While probiotics have been shown effective in managing certain gastrointestinal conditions, they’re very delicate. Heat and stomach acid can easily kill them, and they must compete with over 1,000 bacterial species already in the gut, and they simply do not have the same power that prebiotics do. PREbiotics are starchy plant fibers that can’t be digested by the body. This is why some prebiotics are referred to as “resistant starch”. Prebiotics promote gut and overall health by encouraging the growth of “friendly” gut flora (such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli). The beneficial bacteria in the large intestine and colon ferment prebiotics into the short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate, and butyrate. These fatty acids help maintain proper pH in the gut for optimal digestion and healthy metabolism. They also help regulate blood sugar, increase satiety, and discourage the growth of “unfriendly” bacteria. The benefits go beyond gut health: prebiotics also increase the production of certain neurotransmitters. Increased butyrate levels from prebiotic fermentation stimulate the production of GABA in the brain. Prebiotics also feed the serotoninproducing bacteria in the gut, and serotonin converts to melatonin when darkness falls. The result is reduced anxiety, overall mental clarity, and deeper, more restorative sleep. Different prebiotics “feed” the beneficial gut bacteria in different ways, which is why Prebiotic+™ was formulated to contain several types of prebiotics.
Resistant starch appears to have a consistent effect on metabolism regardless of the type of diet you eat. Even for diabetics and people on ketogenic diets, resistant starch does not yield any rise in blood glucose, and for those of us eating moderate to high carb diets, it has a notable ‘blunting’ effect on blood glucose behavior. This means that regardless of how you eat, PreBiotic+ will have a beneficial effect on your appetite, satiety, digestion, metabolism and gut health.
A Complete Prebiotic
PreBiotic+ is a nutritionally complete resistant starch complex. The combination of raw potato starch and green banana flour yields an optimal concentration of resistant starch for daily supplementation. The addition of trehalose, inulin and cinnamon ensure that the vitamin and mineral profile are complete, along with significant antioxidant levels to soothe the digestive inflammation so many people face.
No Artificial Ingredients
Natural Stacks is committed to using only the finest natural ingredients. Instead of finding lowcost sources of resistant starch overseas, we’ve selected the very best we could find. This ensures that you know exactly what you are putting into your body, and that you have the best experience possible with adding resistant starch to your diet.
