Probiotic. It’s a trendy word these days. Are they really that important? Do they really do anything? Do they actually help our “microbiome”?
Well, after getting tired of wading through the wellness chaos and buzz words, I stumbled upon a probiotic that felt different and was actually teaching me something on a deeper level. They were guiding me to actually understand our microbiome, it’s importance AND, what keeping it healthy means for all of us.
Seed Daily Symbiotic is a symbiotic combo of plant-based prebiotic compounds and probiotics, dreamed up by entrepreneur Ara Kratz and microbiome expert Raja Dhir and developed by their Chief Scientist, Dr. Gregor Reid.
Well there is little evidence that a majority of the probiotics are doing anything for our health. These guys were doing it differently and they took a deep dive into the microbiome to understand it with science, research and clinical trials.
The pills contain “24 potent strains of bacteria that have been clinically proven to not only ease digestion and significantly increase folate production, but to also contribute to cardiovascular health and improve dermatological health“. I repeat, dermatological health. This was a huge bonus for me, which is why this is first on the list. No one else was mentioning this piece and it is huge for us aging ladies.
Seed’s patented plant-based prebiotics are sourced from Indian pomegranate skin, Scandinavian chaga mushrooms, and pine bark. These strains are unique to Seed and are not found in yogurt or fermented foods and beverages.
Seed’s Daily Synbiotic contains both prebiotics and probiotics. The probiotics are clinically-studied probiotic strains that deliver core benefits to the gastrointestinal system which, in turn, influence systemic health, and the prebiotics are nutrients to help you thrive.
To protect it’s goodness, Seed puts its probiotics inside a vegan capsule and inside another prebiotic outer capsule, 2-in-1 nested capsule technology to ensure that bacteria stay alive and usable to your colon, where their work begins. Yes, it’s free of meat and dairy and have no synthetic or chemical coating.
They are shipped in an ultra-sustainable mycelium tray grown from mushrooms, and the pills go into a pretty, refillable green glass jar, and I mean I’m a essentialist and like the few things I have to look good AF. Also a small glass vial for travel and by travel I mean, they are shelf stable for 18 months and requires no refrigeration. Yeah, I know.
Refill shipments contain 30-day in biodegradable packaging to refill your jar.
