User Guide Super Synbiotics

Have you tried Super Synbiotics supplements or are you interested in trying them? You can find tips and tricks here and also get answers to your questions regarding when to take Synbiotic, what to do with it, and much more. 

What is Synbiotic? 

Our dietary supplement, Synbiotic, as the name suggests, is a synbiotic – this means it contains a combination of lactic bacteria (probiotics) and fibre (prebiotics) for your stomach. The fibre functions as food for the good bacteria so they feel good. Synbiotic contains living bacteria so it needs to be kept chilled! Read more about our synbiotics here. 

How do you use Synbiotic? 

Synbiotic is a powder which should be mixed with cold/room temperature liquid or food. The powder should not be heated as this will kill the living bacteria. People usually mix the powder with water, but you can just as easily mix or blend it into a smoothie or sprinkle it over a yoghurt or overnight oats – a good trick to use on picky kids that sometimes have a hard time with new textures and tastes. Always keep in mind to consume the synbiotics as soon as possible once you’ve opened the packet and mixed them with food or liquid. 

When should you take synbiotic? 

You can take synbiotic any time of day or night and it’s actually just as good to take on an empty stomach as it is with food. To start a healthy habit, it’s usually easier if you choose a specific time of day to take your supplement, so try it out and see what feels best for you. 

Who can use Synbiotic? 

People of all ages can enjoy the benefits of Synbiotic. For children under 10, we recommend starting with a half dose once a day and work your way up to a full dose. During certain periods, a double or even triple dose may be required, for example during or after a course of antibiotics. Since antibiotics kill all the bacteria (good and bad), it’s important that you wait until at least two hours after taking the antibiotics before taking your synbiotics. 

Pregnant women and nursing mothers can also take Synbiotic. Children that are breastfeeding can be given synbiotics by mixing the powder with a little water and then applying it to the nipple or dummy. 

What happens when you start taking Synbiotic? 

Just like a lot of other dietary changes, the body and above all the stomach can react when you start taking synbiotics. For the majority of people, it’s just a question of habit and the problem will disappear when the body gets used to the new bacteria and the increased intake of fibre – for some people this may be a couple of days, but for others it can take several weeks. If the symptoms are severe, you can spread the dose out over the day and take half the dose in morning and the other half in the evening. If your stomach feels hard, it’s usually because the fibres in the product are water soluble and need more water to be able to pass through the intestine – so make sure to drink a few extra glasses of water. 

How long do I need to take Synbiotic? 

Everybody’s gut flora is different – it’s sometimes compared to a fingerprint – and that’s why it’s hard to study. And the gut flora’s composition is influenced by a lot of different factors – what we eat (and what we don’t eat), how much we move around, the quality of our sleep, illnesses, medicines, other supplements, stress, and more. So exactly how you personally will be affected by synbiotics is totally dependent on your situation and your lifestyle.
