In the realm of gut health, the trifecta of prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics has emerged as a beacon of wellness. These vital components, working together in harmony, offer a treasure trove of benefits that extend far beyond just digestive health. Let’s dive into the five transformative aspects we love about Synbiotic Ultra™. 

#1) Gut Microbiome Synergy

Synbiotic Ultra™, like AdvoCare Harmony™, presents a synergistic blend of prebiotic, probiotics and postbiotic to foster optimal gut health and overall wellness.   

  • Formulated with 250 milligrams of inulin fiber (prebiotic) sourced from Jerusalem artichoke, it promotes the growth of probiotics, enhancing beneficial bacteria in the gut.  
  • The 8 different strains of Probiotics thrive on the unique combination of prebiotics and postbiotics, which create a diverse gut microbiome. This ecosystem supports efficient digestion, aids in nutrient absorption, and helps maintain a healthy gut environment. 
  • The Beta-glucan serves as postbiotic, enhances microbiota composition in the gut, contributing to the well-being of beneficial gut bacteria, i.e., a happy gut. 

      #2) Enhanced Digestive Health

      The symbiotic relationship between prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics significantly contributes to digestive wellness. Prebiotics foster the growth of probiotics, ensuring their survival and activity in the gut. This cooperative action aids in alleviating symptoms of occasional gastrointestinal discomfort, such as constipation or infrequent diarrhea, by promoting regular bowel movements and restoring gut flora balance. 

      #3) Immune Health Support

      Did you know that 70% of the immune system is located in the gut? Your gut plays a pivotal role in your overall immune health. Synbiotic Ultra™’s formulation, featuring prebiotics like inulin, improves metabolic function and helps to regulate intestinal immunity.  (Sheng et al 2023) Meanwhile, probiotics directly interact with the gut-associated immune cells, enhancing their activity and helping to fortify the body’s defense mechanisms against infections and diseases (Shinde and Perera, 2021). 

      #4) Postbiotics step things up

      Beta-glucans, a type of postbiotic, have gained attention for their beneficial properties concerning immune and gut health. These soluble fibers, derived from the cell walls of plants, yeast and bacteria strengthen the intestinal barrier, promote gut immune health, and even show potential in supporting cardiovascular health (Zou et al., 2020). 

      #5) Delayed release capsule delivery system

      The delayed release capsule in Synbiotic Ultra™ ensures the viable transportation of good bacteria make it to their destination in the gut for colonization.  This protective delivery system shields probiotics from the acidic environment of the stomach. Without protection, probiotics have a small chance of reaching the intestinal tract intact and delivering their beneficial effects. 

      While the benefits of the prebiotic, probiotic and postbiotic trio in Synbiotic Ultra™ are substantial, individual responses may vary. We always recommend consulting a healthcare professional before making significant changes to your healthcare program.
