Symprove is a water-based food supplement that contains live bacteria formulated to aid gut health and promote healthy gut flora. The aim of Symprove is to get good bacteria past the stomach without being digested and broken down, and land in the intestines where the body’s microbiome of good bacteria exists.

Who is it for?

Symprove is suitable for children and adults who would like to supplement their balanced diet and lifestyle. Symprove is dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly.

How should I take Symprove?

Take one 70ml cup of Symprove every morning on an empty stomach. Wait 10 mins before eating or drinking.

How does it work?

Symprove is a food supplement that contains live bacteria in a barley extract. It is designed to deliver live bacteria into the gut to enhance the natural gut flora. Due to its water-based formulation, Symprove is able to deliver a higher concentration of live bacteria into the gut by avoiding triggering digestion and the production of stomach acid that kills bacteria. It contains four live strains of bacteria that already naturally exist as part of your natural microbiome.

Are there any side-effects?

Like all medications, don’t take them if you have previously had an allergic reaction to the medication. Symprove can cause diarrhoea initially when you first begin using it however, this should subside as your body adjusts to the new’good’bacteria.
