Announcements and Special Offers

From the CEO's Desk:

Welcome to 2022!
A new year, and a new you!

It's been quite some time since we last spoke. I would like to bring you up to date with all things happening at Prebiotin of late.

Prebiotin's goal has always been to advance good gut health, which is most critical in these difficult times. We are now 2 years into a global "pandemic". One in which life and death has been a prevailing struggle for just about everyone. It matters not your religious or political beliefs, or your socio-ecomomic status, class, race or creed. We have all been impacted by Covid in one way or another. I hope that your way has not been one that your faith can not handle and see you through.

2021 was very much a transitional year for us at Prebiotin. Learning to adjust to life after the initial response to Covid throughout 2020, and its impacts, put a hold on many opportunities that we as a company were looking forward to. Although it did give us an opportunity to look inward and focus on our website, and internal processes to a greater extent. 

As we pushed on in preparation of new projects and ideas, we learned of the passing of our Founding Father, and leader in the field of prebiotics, Dr. Frank Jackson, in the fall of 2021. It was a sad moment in time for our company, but a much greater loss for the world at large. Frank was a true pioneer, born out of the "eat dirt" mold that  helped shape so much of this past century's understanding of the immune system, it's development and its importance for optimal health. Frank's time may have passed, but his spirit will live on in Prebiotin's mission.

Now as we focus on the future, Prebiotin is pleased to present it's latest revision of our newly upgraded website. As we resume building on the legacy of Frank Jackson, we hope that you find the new site more user friendly as well as informative for all your healthy gut related questions.

In addition, Prebiotin is pleased to present a new periodic newsletter in which we will endeavor to provide timely and relevant information to further benefit your health. Each month, we will be sending out informative articles and healthy tips in several separate formats.

  • Our "Nurture Series"  where we discuss relevant topics of interest with a specific focus on certain diseases and conditions.
  • Our "From the Doctor Series" which will focus on gut health with input from our medical director, Dr. Wilson Jackson.
  • Our "In the News with Prebiotin Series" of newsletters where we will pass along current events, and exciting happenings in the news that impact the Microbiome and gut health. Consider this the first of many efforts in this realm to come.
  • Periodically keep an eye open for special offers and discounts, which we will promote through our online store.

Again, we are excited for everything that is happening at Prebiotin. We have some special upcoming plans that we will be disclosing in the near future. Here at Prebiotin we are excitedly looking forward with great anticipation to a new year, and to turning the page on some of the most challenging times our nation, and the world, has ever faced. Prebiotin will never waiver in its goal to help benefit good gut health throughout the world, which has never been more important than it is today. We hope you stick with us, and enjoy the ride as you keep your gut healthy and happy, feeling better and doing more, with Prebiotin prebiotic fiber.

Best regards,
Ronald Walborn Jr, CEO.

 


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.
