Our Review of Symprove - How Beneficial are Liquid Probiotics?

Symprove is one of the most popular probiotics in the UK, which is why we think it deserves a spotlight on our Wellness Academy Blog. Why this liquid probiotic is a must-have for your gut health - find out in this article!

What is Symprove?

Symprove is a probiotic supplement, meaning it contains beneficial bacteria for your gut microbiome. These bacteria can often be found in fermented foods, such as kimchi, kefir, or kombucha. How important they are for our overall health and wellbeing is being increasingly accentuated by many scientists and nutritionists.

Symprove was founded in 2002 with the believe that a healthy gut bacteria balance can help you live a fuller life. The developers have created a unique water-based formula, by adding four strains of live bacteria. These strains have been proven to arrive, survive, and thrive in the gut, by supporting your gut microbiome.

The gut microbiome is your most densely populated microbial community with trillions of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, yeasts and others. These organisms ideally live in perfect balance, however if this is off, then you will notice changes in your skin, your mood, or your digestion. If untreated, you might fall victim to chronic conditions, like IBS.

How does Symprove work?

Symprove should be taken daily on an empty stomach. It consists of live bacteria in a water-based formula of germinated barley extract. The bacteria in Symprove arrive live in the stomach and are designed to survive passing through your stomach and small intestine, to get to the part of the gut where the microbes live. Once arrived, it can successfully colonise your microbiome with the beneficial bacteria, while the germinated barley acts as a prebiotic to nourish these bacteria.

What can I expect from taking Symprove?

The effects of taking Symprove will be vastly individual, just as individual as deficiencies or imbalances manifest in the body. The team at TheDrug.Store have tried both versions of the liquid probiotic. The Original Flavour, as well as the Mango-Passionfruit Flavour and we have all agreed that the latter is much more palatable. However, if you don’t like the add-on of sucralose and natural flavourings to it, then the Original Flavour is for you!

It quickly became part of our routine; every morning 70ml on an empty stomach, followed by 10 minutes without any food or water to ensure the bacteria arrive unharmed in the stomach. These 10 minutes are ideal to add a mindfulness practice, like journaling, meditating or grounding into your morning.

Whether you are suffering from any pre-existing conditions, have recently undergone antibiotic treatment, or simply want to ensure your microbiome is healthily populated, Symprove is the right probiotic supplement to help you.  

What's special about Symprove?

Symprove outperforms various other market-leading liquid probiotics, thanks to these two unique aspects:

  • The unique formulation: Symprove contains four live strains of lactic acic bacteria (Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum) which have all been independently characterised by the NCIMB (The National Collection of Industrial and Marine Bacteria). They have abeen considered safe, suitable bacteria for human consumption for at least 4,000 years. Additionally, these bacteria are added to the water-based formulation, which contains germinated barley extract to feed the bacteria and allow them to thrive.
  • The Unique Delivery System (UDS™): Unlike many other probiotic supplements that come in capsule form instead, Symprove is a liquid water-based probiotic. This means that it is being digested differently, ensuring that the bacteria actually stay alive, rather than getting killed by gastric juices or not surviving the long journey to the microbiome.

Why is gut health so important?

In our modern lifestyles we’re often not as exposed to the various bacteria and fungi we need for our microbiome, as we used to. Given that your gut essentially is responsible for letting all the nutrients you consume into your system, and keeping any toxins out, it is important to your overall health and wellbeing that it is looked after.

If you don’t often eat fermented foods, then a probiotic supplement, like Symprove, is ideal to support your body and facilitate you living your best life!
