Our most frequently asked questions about Synbiotic

Why should I take Synbiotic? 

A balanced intestinal flora is important for several of our bodily functions, for example approximately 70 percent of our immune system is located in the stomach. Synbiotic is a food supplement with lactic acid bacteria and a high fibre content for your stomach, which promotes a balanced intestinal flora. Synbiotic is based on the research preparation Synbiotic2000, which has been used in a number of studies at reputable universities around the world, and has, among other things, proven to be effective for reducing inflammation, as well as reconditioning the intestinal flora and strengthening the immune system. Since its inception in 2016, Synbiotic has been used by more than 30,000 customers. With approximately half of them taking Synbiotic to treat various types of problems, such as stomach problems, while the other half take Synbiotic to avoid future problems. 

People of all ages can take Synbiotic, even children. For children we recommend that you start with half a dose of Synbiotic15 to see how the child reacts, and later move on to the full dose. We do not recommend Synbiotic40 Enhanced or Synbiotic Gut-Brain for young children. Even pregnant and lactating women can enjoy the benefits of taking Synbiotic.  

 

How long do I need to take Synbiotic and when will I feel the effect? 

Synbiotic should be taken daily and are made to be used throughout your life. This is because bacteria are living organisms. This means you need to replenish good bacteria daily so that they don’t decrease in number. 

Since intestinal flora differs from person to person, the time it takes to notice any result will vary for every individual. The composition of your intestinal flora is affected by factors such as diet, exercise, and stress control.  But also of sleep quality, illnesses, medication, and other dietary supplements that you take. All of this can therefore affect the result. 

If you have never tried Synbiotic before, we recommend using the product for at least three months to be able to evaluate the results. After six months, 9 out of 10 people experience an improved effect on their health after taking Synbiotic (based on a 2022 customer survey).  

 

What is the difference between probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics?  

To support your intestinal flora, you can add different types of food supplements. One common dietary supplement for intestinal flora is probiotics. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines probiotics as ‘living micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate quantities, have a beneficial effect on health’. However, most of us know probiotics as lactic bacteria or a dietary supplement for the stomach. Prebiotics are a type of dietary fibre that occurs naturally in certain foods, such as raw root vegetables, blueberries. and oats. Fibre plays an important role in the diet as it helps to maintain normal bowel function. Dietary fibre ingeniously acts as food for the good bacteria and helps them to thrive and reproduce in the gut.

In addition to probiotics and prebiotics, there are also synbiotics, which could be described as the best of both. While probiotics only contain lactic acid bacteria, synbiotics contain a combination of lactic acid bacteria and dietary fibre. The result is that the supplement contains both the good bacteria and the fibres that support them. The fibres act as a ‘packed lunch’ for the bacteria on their way down to the intestine. Once in place, they feed the bacteria so that they can multiply. The advantage of synbiotics is that the dietary fibre helps the lactic acid bacteria multiply in the intestine, and makes the journey down the intestine easier. In addition, dietary fibre is generally good for intestinal flora. According to the Swedish Food Agency, adults need 25–35 grams of fibre per day, but on average we get significantly less.

 

What makes Synbiotic different from other dietary supplements with lactic acid bacteria? 

1. Grounded in our own research – and developed through active research

Something unique to us is the research that goes into the products. Back in 1999, a group of researchers led by Professor Stig Bengmark began looking for the elite level of anti-inflammatory lactic acid bacteria. They collected and studied over 500 different lactic acid bacteria. Then they selected the absolute most effective anti-inflammatory bacterial strains they could find. The bacterial strains were combined with four types of dietary fibre, which help the bacteria to grow and multiply. We also have ongoing studies with lactic acid bacteria to develop our products and find new usage areas. 

2. Synbiotics instead of Probiotics

Adding dietary fibre to the lactic acid bacteria is a time-consuming and advanced product manufacturing process. But given the benefits of dietary fibre, it’s important to us to have it in our products.  The high content of the four types of dietary fibre, which are specially selected to match our bacterial strains, is something unique to Synbiotic. It is also an important reason why our product works as well as it does.  

3. Unique and patented

It’s common for nutritional supplements with lactic acid bacteria in stores to contain the same strains of bacteria. In some cases, you can find the same bacteria in different products but at completely different prices. The combination of the bacterial strains in Synbiotic was developed after many years of research. They’re patented and completely unique and cannot be found in any other dietary supplement. 

 

Why should I store Synbiotic in the fridge? 

Dietary supplements with lactic acid bacteria should always be kept refrigerated for optimal survival. When stored at room temperature, the number of active bacteria decreases. To ensure the lactic acid bacteria content, we carry out regular tests where we monitor how it develops over time. We also check our products continuously at refrigerated and room temperatures. Through our tests, we can also see that the products can handle the transport to your home. 

 

Do the bacteria survive the journey down to the gut? 

The bacterial strains used in Synbiotic have been shown in studies to be very resistant to bile acid and to have a low pH value. The bacteria are thus well equipped to survive and colonise the intestine. 

Another advantage of Synbiotics is also that the fibre acts as packed lunches for the bacteria on their journey to the intestine. In independent studies, it’s been shown that the bacteria in Synbiotic are found in the faeces of people who’ve taken Synbiotic in the last few days. It further supports the thesis that our bacteria make it all the way through the intestinal system.

 

What is the difference between the Synbiotic products? 

Synbiotic15 Daily was our first product and bestseller, which is generally suitable for people who want to strengthen and maintain a good intestinal flora. One dose of Synbiotic15 contains 15 billion lactic acid bacteria and 4 grams of fibre. Synbiotic40 Enhanced is our stronger product, containing 40 billion lactic acid bacteria and 8 grams of fibre per dose. This synbiotic is better suited for those who have a strong imbalance in the intestinal flora or for occasions when the body is exposed to extra stress. Synbiotic Gut-Brain, like Synbiotic40 Enhanced, is a stronger version that contains 40 billion lactic acid bacteria and 8 grams of fibre per dose, but also vitamins B6, B9 and B12, which contribute to normal psychological function. Daily Capsule is the latest addition. It’s a synbiotic in capsule format that also contains Calcium for a balanced intestinal flora. Synbiotic is gluten and lactose free.

 

How do I take Synbiotic? 

The products Synbiotic15 Daily, Synbiotic40 Enhanced and Synbiotic Gut-Brain come in powder form. For these it’s easiest to stir the powder into a glass of water or other cold liquid. Stir thoroughly and drink immediately to avoid the powder sinking to the bottom or the mixture thickening. Avoid warming the powder as this will kill the bacteria. The product is packed in easy-to-use dosage packs. One pack covers your daily needs.  Daily Capsule is a synbiotic in capsules, where 2 capsules are a daily dose. Our recommendation is that the Daily Capsule should be taken together with a fibre-rich diet for the best effect.result. Synbiotics should be taken daily and can be used throughout your life. 

On special occasions, a double dose (Synbiotic15 only) may be appropriate, for example during or after a course of antibiotics. Since antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria, it’s important to wait at least two hours after taking the antibiotic before taking your synbiotic.
