Pendulum GLP-1 Probiotic


This multi-strain probiotic is formulated with beneficial bacteria that naturally increase GLP-1,* the “un-hunger” hormone that helps curb cravings & appetite.

With postbiotic promoting Akkermansia, Clostridium Butyricum and Bifidobacterium infantis

  • GLP-1 is essential for appetite regulation

    Your gut naturally produces GLP-1, the “un-hunger” hormone that plays multiple roles in metabolic health. Unfortunately, GLP-1 can decrease with age and lifestyle.

    Now you’ve got the power to boost this powerful hormone* with our targeted, science-backed strains that help you produce more GLP-1 naturally.

    GLP-1 Probiotic

    • 91% reported reduced overall food cravings†
    • Helps maintain a healthy weight
    • Enhances natural GLP-1 production

    How we're different

    GLP-1 Probiotic naturally boosts GLP-1 production.* It does not contain GLP-1 and is not a GLP-1 agonist drug.

    These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

    How GLP-1 hormone works

    1. As you eat, metabolic processes are triggered in your body
    2. In the gut microbiome, the beneficial bacteria - such as Akkermansia and Butyricum - convert the fiber in your food into butyrate, and Akkermansia secretes a protein called p9
    3. Butyrate and p9 stimulate GLP-1, the hormone that tells your pancreas to produce insulin, slowing down the emptying of your stomach
    4. This sends a signal to your brain that you're full, reducing your appetite, helping to maintain a healthy weight

    GLP-1 Probiotic is formulated with bacterial strains that boost this process naturally.*

    *Based on preclinical studies
    †Based on a consumer survey of 274 people

  • It’s what’s inside that counts

    GLP-1 Probiotic is formulated with the beneficial bacterial strains that help you produce more GLP-1.*

    Akkermansia muciniphila
    Generates the postbiotics propionate and p9 which induce GLP-1 production.

    Clostridium butyricum
    Produces the postbiotic butyrate which stimulates GLP-1.

    Bifidobacterium infantis
    Produces the postbiotics acetate and lactate which feed bacteria such as Akkermansia and Butyricum, promoting an ecosystem in the gut that supports a healthy gut lining and naturally boosts GLP-1.

    Other ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose, hypromellose (vegetarian capsule), silica

    Adults take 1 capsule daily.
    Refrigerate after opening for optimal quality.

    *Based on preclinical studies

  • Are there studies that show that GLP-1 can help maintain a healthy weight?
    Yes, GLP-1 has been shown to play an important role in metabolic homeostasis and healthy weight regulation. Akkermansia muciniphila and microbial strains that produce butyrate such as Clostridium butyricum can augment GLP-1 production through natural stimulation of the L-cells.  

    For a scientific overview of the microbiome, the difference between GLP-1 agonist drugs and microbial approaches to regulating GLP-1, and the role GLP-1 plays in helping to maintain a healthy weight, please refer to the white paper: Harnessing GLP-1 in the digestive tract for better metabolic health. Or click here for PubMed publications on GLP-1.

    What clinical studies have been done on GLP-1 Probiotic?
    In a consumer study of 274 people taking GLP-1 Probiotic for 6 weeks, 91% reported reduced food cravings. Based on promising findings from this initial consumer study, Pendulum is planning additional clinical trials to further our scientific understanding.

    Why did you decide to create a GLP-1 supplement? 
    At Pendulum, customers are at the center of everything we do. We recognized there was a need for a natural solution to address cravings and appetite control, and our consumers studies and published research show that the beneficial bacteria strains used by Pendulum are particularly effective in this area.

    How does GLP-1 Probiotic compare to other Pendulum products, and which one is right for me? 
    GLP-1 Probiotic is formulated with 3 precise strains (Clostridium butyricum, Akkermansia muciniphila, and Bifidobacterium infantis) that specifically target mechanisms needed to upregulate the GLP-1 pathway.

    While there is some ingredient overlap in our products, the unique combinations and precise quantities of strains in each probiotic have been specifically formulated to address specific needs.

    For example, GLP-1 Probiotic and Akkermansia have the same amount of Akkermansia muciniphila. However, GLP-1 Probiotic is also formulated with Clostridium butyricum and Bifidobacterium infantis which contribute to the production of butyrate. Clostridium butyricum and Akkermansia muciniphila have both been shown to stimulate L-cells to release GLP-1.

    Which probiotic is right for you depends on your goals.
    If you’re trying to curb cravings → GLP-1 Probiotic
    If you’re trying to improve how your body metabolizes sugars and carbs → Metabolic Daily
    If you have type 2 diabetes and are trying to lower your A1C and blood glucose spikes → Glucose Control
    If you’re trying to improve your gut health → Akkermansia

    Is GLP-1 Probiotic safe?
    GLP-1 Probiotic is composed of commensal strains naturally found in the human gut.  These strains have undergone extensive safety studies and found to be safe. 

    Can or should I take GLP-1 Probiotic if I’m pregnant?
    GLP-1 Probiotic contains commensal bacterial strains that exist within the gut microbiome of healthy people, including during pregnancy. To date, GLP-1 Probiotic has not been studied in women who are either pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. Please consult with your healthcare provider to see if this product may be a good fit for you.

    Are there any side effects of taking GLP-1 Probiotic?
    When starting any new probiotic such as GLP-1 Probiotic, there can be an adjustment period. You may experience some gastrointestinal symptoms (increased gas, bloating, nausea, or loose stools) that usually resolve over the initial 14 days or with discontinuation of the product. If you experience symptoms that are severe or do not resolve, please consult your healthcare provider.

    How long should GLP-1 Probiotic be taken? 
    GLP-1 Probiotic is a daily supplement and can be taken for as long as you experience benefits.

    Should someone lower their dose after taking for 60, 90, 180 days? 
    To maintain the benefits of GLP-1 Probiotic, we do not recommend lowering the dose.

    Can I travel with GLP-1 Probiotic?
    You can travel with GLP-1 Probiotic. Just toss your bottle in your bag and once you reach your destination, put it in the fridge if possible since we recommend refrigeration for optimal quality.

    What lifestyle habits should someone adjust to maximize the benefit of taking GLP-1 Probiotic?
    A diet filled with colorful fruits, vegetables, polyphenols, and a wide range of dietary fibers supports a healthy gut microbiome and will maximize the benefits of GLP-1 Probiotic. It’s also important to maintain healthy stress levels and remain physically active.

    Are there certain health conditions that make it harder to maintain a healthy weight when taking GLP-1 Probiotic?
    If you have specific health conditions that make maintaining a healthy weight more difficult, we recommend working with your healthcare provider to answer any medical questions.

    Will the effects plateau after a certain amount of time? 
    GLP-1 Probiotic is designed to help your body optimize GLP-1 naturally and should continue supporting your body’s natural process for as long as you are taking the product.

Pendulum GLP - Probiotic

Great product - I have added it to my regular probiotic for a boost and I'm not craving chocolate after lunch anymore since taking it this month and I still have the chocolate in the fridge to tempt me!

Diarrhoea, in a bottle

Went from a Bristol four (perfection) to a Bristol seven liquid mess. Perhaps, I need to keep taking the product until my gut balances itself. However, the effects are too urgent and extreme to keep it in my supplement stack!
