Prebiotin mourns the passing of its Founding Father

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Prebiotin’s founder, Dr. Frank Jackson. Frank is considered by many to be one of the earliest pioneers of prebiotics, and spent his later years working tirelessly to research what he believed to be the most important aspect of good health, the study of prebiotics and its benefits in the gut. Prebiotin is truly grateful for his unwavering support and dedication to the field and our company. He will be sorely missed by so many.


Dr. Frank JacksonAfter his education at Princeton, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Jackson began treating patients with a myriad of intestinal concerns. As a successful and popular practicing gastroenterologist in Central Pennsylvania for 40 years, Dr. Frank W. Jackson was always fascinated with “all things gut related.” 

In later years, he tirelessly began researching the digestive value of prebiotics, determined to find the best type and formula for a prebiotic supplement that would be the most beneficial solution for a population suffering from the effects of an increasingly dysfunctional Western diet. A diet that is causing a dysfunctional gut microbiome, resulting in a disproportionate rise in disease and inflammation.

His visionary work has resulted in Prebiotin’s current participation in numerous scientific studies, including several funded by the National Institutes of Health. He is also the founder of several companies, including Jackson GI Medical, Chek-Med, GI Supply, and Meducate.

“I’ve been excited to find that the latest research shows the human gut to not just be the place where digestion ends, but the place where your health begins!” - Frank W. Jackson, MD
