Arbonne Gut Health Review
What is Arbonne Digestion Plus?
Arbonne Digestion Plus is a botanically derived, vegan friendly, gluten-free, non-gmo, powder supplement which helps your digestive health by breaking down foods properly and efficiently, thus reducing the strain on it. It contains, probiotics & prebiotics for your gut health and enzymes for your digestive system. It comes in a convenient on-the-go stick pack which you can throw in your purse or bag.
How does Arbonne’s Digestion Plus work?
It uses prebiotics to support a healthy gi (gastrointestinal) tract, and helps feed probiotics to your gut. The enzymes support the break down of food (carbs, fat, protein, etc).
What are Probiotics and Prebiotics?
Probiotics are responsible for a number of important functions within the GI tract, such as production of vitamin K, supporting immune health, and helping maintain the balance of microflora. Probiotics such as Bacillus coagulans, is a good friendly bacteria that helps you break down food.
Prebiotics are a soluble fiber that help create an ideal environment for probiotics (“good bacteria”) to colonize such as chicory root powder, which helps increase the good bacteria. Bacteria needs food to survive. Prebiotics help support a healthy gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
The role of Prebiotics and Probiotics in Gut Immunity
According to the (National Institute of Health) NIH , prebiotics and probiotics play a role in gut immunity. Good bacteria in the gut could play a role as a regulator of health. Toxins produced in the colon could inhibit the growth of other bacteria.
“Good” lactic acid-producing bacteria are beneficial since they reduce the growth and thus the toxic products of other bacteria within the colon.
Probiotics are defined by the World Health Organization as “live microorganisms that can provide benefits to human health when administered in adequate amounts, which confer a beneficial health effect on the host”
What are benefits of combining Probiotics and Prebiotics?
Adding prebiotics to a probiotic supplement can help ensure that the digestion-friendly microorganisms arrive in the gut alive and well, so the good bacteria reaches your digestion system.
Basically, by taking this means your body doesn’t have to work as hard to break down the tough food ingredients.
What ingredients are in Arbonne’s Digestion Plus?
It’s a combination of pre and probiotics, and enzymes, which makes perfect sense, as it benefits your gut health and also assists with digestion.
So now let’s look at the ingredients in the Digestion Plus.
Here is some interesting tidbits from some of the most important ingredients:
- Bacillus coagulans – the “good bacteria” is much less sensitive to environmental factors like heat and humidity, and resists being killed by stomach acid.According to the medicine journal, studies have shown that bacillus coagulans, survives its trip to the GI tract and can be instrumental in reducing constipation. Bacillus coagulans can survive in the gut for several days make it a relatively ideal probiotic due to its stability and long survivability when consumed.This is important because other bacteria like lactobaccilus acidopholous, lose their potency.
- Chicory fructooligosaccharide, which is like food for bacteria, it helps bacteria eat and grow
- Enzymes – are proteins that help break down dietary macronutrients so they can be used by the body to help support a healthy digestive process. They are important since they break things down, so we can absorb the food. The enzymes in Digestion Plus help support the breakdown of carbs, fats, protein, fiber and lactose.
- Peppermint leaf extract (Mentha piperita) – which is soothing and has an affinity for the GI tract.
- (Matricaria recutita) – which is soother for the nervous system and also is affinity for the GI tract

When should you take Digestion Plus?
It’s simple to use, just add the packet it in a cold beverage, stir it, and drink it first thing in the morning then right before a big meal (either lunch / dinner).
How does Digestion Plus taste?
Because taste is subjective, here’s a few random selection of users:
User at Amazon – RaideretteLove – “The taste/smell is hardly noticeable. I add a few drops of lemon & take this in one shot of water first thing in the morning. The health benefits are amazing! My bloating has reduced significantly.”
Ariel from easylightsources.org – “The taste is pretty bland. But, that’s actually a good thing because that means it doesn’t have excess sugars in it. So that’s a win!”
jbro9995 from ebay – “I only use half sachet at a time as tastes a bit sweet for me so it’s even better value for money”
You may also run across people who may not be fond of taste, but most just put the benefits over the taste.
