Each functional food pack contains MegaPre™ Precision Prebiotic™, a proprietary blend of functional fibers and flavorful, purposeful ingredients that support a strong and diverse microbiome. Formulated with clinically tested, non-digestible oligosaccharides and kiwifruit powder, MegaPre™ Squeeze Packs offer a child-sized daily dose of prebiotics that support increased microbial diversity and selectively feed butyrate-producing bacteria, including Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, and Bifidobacteria. +

MegaPre™ is the first Precision Prebiotic™ supplement that can effectively support gut microbiome diversity and selectively feed its keystone species.
Why Do Kids Need Prebiotics?
Prebiotics feed probiotics, supporting the health and diversity of kids’ microbiomes. Beyond valuable maintenance for the digestive system, prebiotics may support immune, metabolic, bone, and brain function. Prebiotics are readily available, occurring naturally in a variety of foods. Yet, once young children transition to food, most kids don’t consume enough of them, particularly if they’re picky eaters or don’t like foods that contain prebiotics. Plus, fruit and vegetable intake are generally inadequate among kids, especially those eating a low-fiber, Western-style diet. Consequently, many parents find it’s a struggle to get prebiotics into their kids’ diets. Knowing children tend to not consume enough foods with prebiotics, parents can be proactive and offer a convenient and tasty functional food supplement like MegaPre™ Squeeze Packs as a preventative measure!
So, All Prebiotics Aren’t the Same?
Prebiotics are dietary fibers that can’t be digested or absorbed by the human digestive tract but are the preferred food for the gut microbiome’s bacterial species. However, most prebiotics on the market are NOT selective. This means some prebiotics can feed bacteria you’d rather not support. MegaPre™ was explicitly designed to support the keystone bacterial strains without feeding the dysbiosis-producing microflora in the gut.
Why Selectively Feed Secondary Degraders?
Primary degrader bacterial species feed mainly on bulky fibers (cellulose, resistant starches, inulin), converting them into intermediary products (acetate, lactate, oligosaccharides) that feed secondary degrader keystone bacterial species. MegaPre™ contains oligosaccharides, non-digestible medium-chain carbohydrates and kiwifruit powder, that selectively feed secondary degraders. Secondary degrader bacterial species produce valuable short-chain fatty acid (SCFAs) metabolites, including butyrate. SCFAs support many diverse physiological functions necessary for optimal health and well-being.
Complex, bulky fibers are vital to feeding health-supportive bacteria. Yet, they can also support undesirable microorganisms. MegaPre™ was designed to bypass the primary degrader step, providing the intermediate byproducts (oligosaccharides) necessary for secondary degraders to produce health-supportive SCFAs. Thus, MegaPre™’s oligosaccharides and kiwifruit powder may support a significant increase in keystone species, including Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, and Bifidobacteria—all of which are vital for supporting healthy metabolism, body composition, and intestinal barrier function.
