Microbiome-Based Weight Loss – Join Our Research Study!

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

About a year ago, Amare launched GBX Fit, the world’s first “quad-biotic” targeting fat loss and appetite control by harnessing the microbiome and gut-brain-axis (GBX Fit was runner-up for 2022 Probiotic of the Year).

Just last week, Amare advanced the game yet again with GBX Burn, the world’s first non-stimulant thermogenic (“fat-burner”) that also harnesses the power of the gut to influence appetite, metabolism, and fat gain.

The combination of GBX Fit and GBX Burn is really an unmatched system to help you “take it off” (enhanced fat loss with Fit) and “keep it off” (reduced fat storage with GBX Burn).

Looking ahead to further innovations in microbiome-based interventions, we are recruiting volunteers for a research study of a unique and specific strain of probiotic bacteria (Lactobacillus plantarum KABP-51) that we think might have benefits for psychological mood state, gut microbiome status, stress hormones, and body composition (body fat and muscle mass).

Check out some details below – and let us know if you’re interested?

Important = You CANNOT be taking any other weight loss drugs or supplements – and you MUST have access to a body composition (BIA) scale (at home or your local gym) to participate in this study.
