Gut Bomb 350 Billion, #1 Weight Loss Probiotic
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are designed to provide you with healthy and beneficial intestinal bacteria to promote improved gut health…
Basically, probiotics are a way for you to give your intestinal tract superfood designed to help improve your health.
You may have known all that, but do you know why it’s important to take probiotics?
It turns out that the bacterial species in your gut impact nearly all facets of your health.
They help you produce neurotransmitters that balance your mood.
They help you absorb nutrients and calories (bad bacteria make you absorb MORE calories).
They help reduce inflammation both in your gut and in your entire body.
They help balance your hormones.
They influence your GI tract, stomach acid, and bowel movements.
They protect you against autoimmune disease and balance the immune system.
They digest particles of food and create energy that your body can absorb.
And that’s just the beginning…
The point is, these probiotics are INCREDIBLY important and making sure the concentration of bacteria in your gut stays healthy should be your top priority.
But still, why do you need to take probiotics?
Almost every aspect of your life has some effect (positive or negative) on the bacterial concentration in your gut.
Want to eat some ice cream? You’re promoting the growth of BAD bacteria.
Are you under a lot of stress from work? Your stress is killing off good bacteria.
Have hypothyroidism or other hormone problems? These imbalances change your microbiome.
Don’t want to work out because you are tired? Not working promotes unhealthy bacterial levels.
The list goes on and on.
Basically, every action you take is either promoting healthy bacterial growth or helping promote unhealthy bacterial growth.
You probably know what things promote HEALTHY growth and what things promote UNHEALTHY growth – so we won’t go over those now.
Instead, I want to focus on the need for probiotics.
Taking probiotics is a way for you to fight back against the normal everyday stressors of your life.
They can help promote the healthy growth of bacteria while killing off the negative bacteria – it’s a win-win.
And that’s not all they do – taking probiotics may actually promote some other very beneficial side effects such as weight loss…
Probiotics & Weight Loss
Do probiotics help with weight loss?
The answer is that YES, they absolutely can help with weight loss.
The question is how:
Probiotics have a number of beneficial effects that, when added together, may help alter caloric absorption and caloric burn.
Here’s how it works…
#1. Probiotics may alter intestinal bacteria and help REDUCE the total number of calories that you absorb with each meal.
Did you know that the amount of calories you absorb from each meal depends on the type of bacteria in your gut?
Unhealthy proportions of gut bacteria promote INCREASED absorption of calories.
This means that two people (1 person with healthy gut bacteria and 1 person with unhealthy gut bacteria) can consume 100 calories of food, and the person with the unhealthy gut bacteria may absorb 90 of those 100 calories while the person with the healthy gut bacteria may only absorb 70 of those 100 calories.
With this in mind, you can alter the number of calories you absorb by improving your microbiome.
This isn’t the only way probiotics can help with weight loss, however:
#2. Probiotics may help alter your appetite and help reduce cravings for unhealthy foods.
Does it feel like you have cravings for unhealthy foods, fatty foods or sugary foods?
If so it might surprise you to know that the population of certain bacteria in your gut may be the source of these food cravings.
This is how it works:
When you eat unhealthy food you are promoting the replication of unhealthy bacteria in your gut (this could be from eating ice cream, refined sugar, soda/diet soda, etc.).
As the unhealthy bacteria grow they begin to secrete cytokines into your bloodstream that alter neurotransmitter levels and increase your cravings for certain foods.
They do this because THEY survive off of the unhealthy foods, which means you have to keep eating those types of food in order to help keep them alive.
The reverse is also true with healthy foods.
The more healthy foods you eat the more likely you are to crave healthy foods.
At the center of these cravings is your gut bacteria and it can be manipulated by taking probiotics.
#3. Directly influence and lower “fat storing” hormones such as insulin while improving thyroid hormone which is involved in regulating your metabolism.
Lastly, and probably most importantly, the bacteria in your gut influence certain “fat storing” hormones such as leptin and insulin.
It has been well established through various studies that the environment of your GI tract may promote the development of a condition known as metabolic syndrome.
Metabolic syndrome is a constellation of diseases which results in increased inflammation in the entire body, increased fat deposits in the belly, bad cholesterol and high triglycerides.
This combination of diseases plays a significant role in the development of cancer, stroke and heart attacks.
We don’t know exactly what causes all of these problems but we do know that your gut plays a role in the development and potentiation of metabolic syndrome.
Taking probiotics is the first step to aligning your microbiome and intestinal bacteria to help reduce insulin resistance and weight loss.
Strains and Species in Gut Bomb 350 Billion
Gut Bomb contains 18 species and strains that have been clinically shown in studies to be effective (see studies below).
The complete list of strains, species, and concentration of each is listed below:
- + Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14, 125 billion CFU
- + Bifidobacterium lactic Bl-04
- + Lactobacillus bulgaricus Lb-87, 5 Billion CFU
- + Bifidobacterium longum subsp. infantis Bi-26, 5 Billion CFU
- + HOWARU Bifido (Bifidobacterium lactis HN019), 25 Billion CFU
- + Lactobacillus plantarum Lp-115, 20 Billion CFU
- + Bifidobacterium longum Bl-05, 5 Billion CFU
- + Bifidobacterium bifidum Bb-06, 5 Billion CFU
- + HOWARU Rhamnosus (Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001,) 15 Billion CFU
- + Lactobacillus rhamnosus Lr-32, 5 Billion CFU
- + Lactobacillus brevis Lbr-35, 5 Billion CFU
- + Lactobacillus gasseri Lg-36, 5 Billion CFU
- + Lactobacillus casei Lc-11, 5 Billion CFU
- + Lactobacillus salivarus Ls-33, 5 Billion CFU
- + Bifidobacterium breve Bb-03, 5 Billion CFU
- + Lactococcus lactis Ll-23, 5 Billion CFU
- + Streptococcus thermophilus St-21, 5 Billion CFU
- + Bifidobacterium bifidum, 5 Billion CFU
The relative concentration of probiotics is broken down to a unit known as CFU which stands for colony forming units.
Like other supplements, the CFU is a good indicator of how “strong” or how “effective” your probiotic supplement will be.
Just going to the grocery store and purchasing a random probiotic will most likely NOT be effective unless the potency reaches a critical point.
Otherwise, you risk not putting enough of the probiotic into your body to make a difference.
This concept holds true for other supplements, medications and pretty much anything else in life.
Taking a supplement which has 10+ strains but only 5 billion CFU in each serving will likely NOT result in significant weight loss for you (although you will be lead to believe it will).
Compare that to most studies which use anywhere from 300 billion CFU up to 900 billion CFU per serving.
With the average probiotic dose around 15-20 billion CFU per serving, these studied concentrations contain up to 20 to 60x higher doses and is largely the reason why they are so much more effective.
Dosing (CFU per serving) makes a big difference in weight loss.
Why is Gut Bomb 350 Billion so Effective?
We’ve already hit on many of these points but it’s worth expanding on what makes certain probiotics better than others.
Point #1: Gut bomb contains all 4 of the most well-studied probiotics that have been clinically shown to help with weight loss:
- Lactobacillus gasseri
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Bifidobacterium lactis
- Lactobacillus casei
Only certain probiotics have been proven through clinical studies to help with weight loss (at least at this point).
This probiotic contains all of those species and strains.
Point #2: Comes climate controlled in individual package.
ALL probiotics will slowly die over time until they are consumed and used in your body.
The rate at which these little guys die depends on a number of different factors.
One factor is the climate.
Certain probiotics need to be refrigerated and sheltered from the cold in order to survive.
If this isn’t done then you risk only getting about 50% or less of what the “estimated” dose is on your probiotic.
As an example, Gut bomb 350 Billion is formulated with 650 billion CFU at the time of manufacture and this is done to ensure that each dose that YOU get is 350 billion CFU.
Point #3: Each packet is sheltered from light and moisture.
Gut bomb 350 billion comes in a foil-lined individual packet which is sealed and protects the probiotics on the inside from light and moisture.
Point #4: Contains temperature controlled probiotics that will last during transit.
The probiotic species inside gut bomb 350 billion do not need to be refrigerated.
This helps ensure that you will get the maximum dose of CFU by the time it arrives at your door.
Point #5: Contains 300+ Billion CFU in each serving.
Very few commercial probiotics contain dosages as high as 300+ billion CFU per serving.
Please see the information above regarding why this is so important.
Tips for Using Gut Bomb for Weight Loss
To get the best results by using this probiotic you will want to follow these tips:
#1. Use Gut Bomb 350 Billion daily x15-30 days (depending on how much weight you have to lose.
#2. Combine gut bomb 350 billion with supplements designed to reduce inflammation and increase thyroid function.
#3. Add fermented foods/vegetables to your diet each day while using this probiotic.
#4. Combine gut bomb 350 billion with exercise (emphasis on strength training) at least 1x per week for 20-30 minutes.
#5. Aim for 5-10 pounds of weight loss each month and be patient! (If you lose more than 5-10 pounds per month you risk worsening leptin resistance and re-gaining your weight back).
1.) How should you take Gut Bomb 350 Billion?
Gut bomb 350 billion can be taken with or without food.
I recommend that you use this supplement without food unless you get some nausea if consuming it on an empty stomach.
Remember that gut bomb 350 billion is an ultra potent probiotic which means that it has a very high concentration of beneficial bacteria in each dose.
With this in mind I recommend the following way to use gut bomb:
For weight loss –>
For weight loss, you will want to be more aggressive which means you will want to use a higher dose more frequently than other conditions.
Start with using 1 gut bomb DAILY x15 doses.
After 15 days you can go down to every other day use x15 days.
From there (depending on how much weight you want to lose) you can then use 1 packet every 3-5 days (again depending on your results).
For regular bowel maintenance –>
If your intestinal health is in order then you can use the maintenance dose of Gut bomb 350 billion which is 1 packet every other day to every third day.
If you are just starting I recommend 1 packet daily x7 days then 1 packet every third day x21 days.
For intestinal issues –>
The use for other intestinal issues will depend on your body, but I recommend starting with 1 packet daily x7 days then 1 packet every third day x21 days.
From that point, you can continue with 1 packet every other to every third day (once your symptoms have improved).
2.) Are there any side effects?
Gut bomb 350 billion is generally well tolerated.
Some people report mild nausea if they take gut bomb 350 billion on an empty stomach, but most patients tolerate the probiotic very well and only notice an improvement in symptoms.
3.) How long do I need to take it?
For weight loss, you will want to continue using this supplement for 3-6 months (depending on weight loss results).
For intestinal health, I recommend that you use the maintenance dose for 6 months to properly restore beneficial bacteria in your gut.
The amount of time you need to take it will depend on your body and your results.
4.) Will Gut Bomb interfere with my thyroid medication?
As a precaution, we recommend that you take this supplement (along with others) 30-60 minutes away from your thyroid medication.
5.) Will Gut bomb work if I don’t have thyroid problems?
YES! Gut bomb was designed to provide a healthy blend of probiotic species that will help people with and without thyroid issues.

The Science Behind Gut Bomb 350 Billion:
|Dimensions||3.5 × 3.5 × 5.75 in|
I tried the gut bomb for 30 days. While I didn’t lost any weight, my stomach did feel better. I have some other health issues that are preventing me from losing weight at this time. After taking antibiotics more than a few time I’ve rthe past year, I felt that it was worth the money to try the gut bomb to get my stomach bacteria back to normal. I don’t know if it did, but it was worth a shot.
I got the gut bombs a few days ago and I am a bit concerned about the MFG date, it has 04/2018 on there. Not sure if that means the probiotics are not fresh or what. Also, the photo shown is completely different then what you get. Not that it is a major deal but this is a review so I am just being transparent. Mine came in a box instead. I will update in the review sections my experience once I have used the product up.
Helped my digestion and bloating. Great product!
Didn’t really notice a big difference just the fact that it is healthy for the body. To know that if my stomach is healthy I will do better physically. That’s a plus!!!
I am on my second order, alternating between this and his 100B probiotic. Pairing this with an AIP diet (I have hashimotos) has really stepped up my digestion, and actually helping me be less ‘puffy’ and drip a few pounds. I’m not overweight but could stand to use 5-10 pounds and I really think this is going to play a big factor in that. I’m very grateful to have stumbled upon Dr. Westin’s work. I’ve read of all his articles on his blogs that pertain to me. Thank you for all you do!
