For the past few months, I have had the opportunity to try out the Seed Daily Synbiotic. Seed is an “ecosystem made up of scientists, doctors, innovators, entrepreneurs, storytellers, technologists, environmentalists, moms, dads, thinkers, activists, artists, translators, dot connectors, writers, professors, and poets from around the world.” The founders set out to create a new standard in bacteria, pioneering the inquiry, application, and communication of microbiome science to improve human and planetary health. But, before I get into my thoughts and experiences with their line of products, I want to get into a little bit of the science that’s behind them.

A Synbiotic is a combination of probiotics and prebiotics. You may have heard of probiotics before. The scientific definition of a probiotic is live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. Have you ever heard of the microbiome? It’s a collection of all the microbial genes (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc) that is in your body. We, as humans, are what they call superorganisms, because we are multi-species organisms co-existing with 38 trillion microbes. About 50% of our bodies are microbial. “Seeding” is the process of receiving your foundational microbes, first from your mother and then from your environment. It may all sound like a lot of information to absorb, but on the Seed website you can click the Learn tab to explore this even further.

I, myself, graduated Seed University, in order to be able to serve as an affiliate for this brand. The training for this was pretty extensive and I learned a ton about my body I didn’t know.  While I’ve taken probiotics in the past, I really never understood how they work until now. And I was surprised to learn that Seed’s Daily Synbiotic is the first to include probiotic strains that actually increase the production of Folate.

As part of being a graduate, I received a  themed “bacteria” sweatshirt, a science fanny pack, a 30 day supply of the Daily Synbiotic and a 30 day refill of it. While extra cute, these goodies and packaging do not all come in your initial order.

Seed Daily Synbiotic

The Welcome kit order comes with a refillable glass jar containing 60 capsules that is considered a 30 day supply. It also comes with a glass travel case. Sustainable refills come in a soft paper packing to save on excess packaging waste.  The capsules are made up of a probiotic inner capsule and a prebiotic outer capsule. The outside of the capsule acts as a barrier to oxygen, moisture and heat, and protects the formulation from stomach acid, digestive enzymes, and bile salts during the digestive process to ensure that 100% of the dose reaches the colon. The capsules also do not require refrigeration.

In addition to improvement in my digestion, I actually noticed an improvement in my skin while using this product. That’s because the product benefits the body beyond gut health. It benefits your cardiovascular health, dermatological health and more. I also love that they are soy-free, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and corn-free. Plus, they have no binders or preservatives either. As someone in my early 40’s, I’ve needed to focus more on what I put into my body and ensure that I am taking care of my health. This product has become part of my daily regimen that also includes exercise, a health diet, and stress-reduction tactics.
