Revolutionary Probiotics: How does Sugar Shift work?

biotiquest bottle with petri dish for research

Improve your sugar metabolism with Sugar Shift from BiotiQuest.

The strains our labs use to make this product are unique and proprietary to BiotiQuest. Therefore, we can say our products are specialized and work differently than others on the market. We precisely and thoughtfully create products to restore harmony in the gut. We also believe in total transparency so please inquire if you have any questions.

Most probiotics on the shelf today are more similar to one another than they are different. In reality, there are only a few global suppliers of the strains of bacteria in today’s probiotics. Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria strains, are these typical strains which are easy to produce in large volumes. So check out our labels and notice our proprietary blends. 


How it works

Our cumulative lifestyle choices (unavoidable and intentional) affect the state of everyone’s microbiome. Everything that goes into our body influences our health trajectory. Balancing the bacteria in the gut benefits your body’s immune system, brain function, skin and digestion. Once the gut’s harmony is disrupted it’s difficult to re-establish balance.Generally, people begin to recognize their gut health is off-balance when notice change in their overall health.

Sugar Shift targets the way the body metabolizes sugars. The Western diet is overloaded with carbohydrate and sugar consumption. This throws the ecosystem of the gut out of control.


Sugar shift’s formula converts excess sugars (glucose  and fructose) into the prebiotic Mannitoal which the human body does not use. Eliminating these extra sugars make it possible to establish gut balance again.


Restoring this mannitol function to your gut ecosystem cannot be achieved by simply consuming high mannitol foods like watermelon and sweet potato or using a mannitol sweetener. The mannitol-fructose metabolic pathway, like most other carbohydrate fermentation pathways, is self-balancing, meaning that if too much of one builds up it will reverse the biological pathway and start making the other. Mannitoal also has diuretic properties and has been shown to pull fluid into the colon - which may help relieve constipation and make your bowel movements more regular.

Our eight-strain formula includes two strains of bacteria that are proprietary to us. These isolated strains possess bacteriocins. These Bacteriocins target the elimination of other harmful bacteria.


Sugar Shift is also packed full of other beneficial bacteria, including:

Leuconostoc mesenteroides, Pediococcus and Lactobacillus. Leuconostoc spp are part of the symbiotic colonies of bacteria and yeast or SCOBY involved in the fermentation of kefir, a fermented milk beverage. You may recognize Pediococcus and Lactobacillus as active ingredients in the fermentation of cabbage, making it sauerkraut or kimchi.

Next, we added a versatile bacteria that comes from the soil.
Our ancestors used to come in contact with soil every day. Our modern lifestyles have taken us far away from the many beneficial microbes that are found in soil. We use a strain called Bacillus subtilis. Bacillus subtilis has been shown to be effective and modulating the immune system.
