Gutbiome Advanced Synbiotic Capsules - 90 Capsules

Gutbiome™ Advanced Synbiotic Capsules are a broad spectrum synbiotic containing 18 probiotic strains from 4 different genus groups as well as healthy yeasts to maintain gastrointestinal health and a healthy immune system coupled with award winning prebiotic Livaux® derived from golden kiwi fruit, which won Prebiotic of the Year awards in 2020 & 2021.

At a strength of 23 billion CFU per 3 capsules (adult full dose), this scientific formula helps to reduce the occurrence of upper respiratory tract infections, promote healthy bacteria growth, improve digestion and support healthy immune system function. 

Gutbiome is by far one of the most comprehensive probiotic formulations on the market that I've come across and it is the wide variety of strains used together with a powerful prebiotic that sold me. I've only experienced excellent results from this myself. 

Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride (Author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome) was involved in the selection process of the specific probiotic strains chosen and advocates for the use of Gutbiome for individuals experiencing GAPS associated conditions.

Signs and symptoms indicating an imbalance of gut bacteria (gut dysbiosis) in the Gutbiome may include bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation and yeast overgrowth such as Candida. This imbalance is commonly caused by antibiotics, the contraceptive pill and other medications, GIT infections, stress and a diet high in processed carbohydrates and sugar.

When pathogenic microorganisms, antibiotics, chemicals, medication, radiation therapy and diet perturb either the intestinal epithelium or the host’s regular microbiota residents in the Gutbiome, the gut defense can become vulnerable and the immune system compromised, predisposing the host to disease.

Supplementing a multi strain synbiotic with specific probiotic strains and beneficial yeast has been found to significantly increase the gastrointestinal populations of beneficial bacteria while simultaneously decreasing populations of less health promoting bacteria and yeast.

For women in preconception mode, pregnant or breastfeeding, Gutbiome can be an incredibly powerful support to nurture a well balanced, diverse and healthy microbiome for baby whilst safeguarding against mastitis and urinary tract complaints. 

The capsules are ideal for adults vs the powder is perfect for all ages including the very young allowing for easy incorporation into breast milk, juice and smoothies.

Livaux® is a “precision prebiotic” targeted to support the growth of healthy bacteria including Faecalibacterium prausnitzii (F. prau), which is low in people suffering from IBS, IBD and Crohn’s disease. As an extremely oxygen sensitive bacteria, F. prau cannot be taken as a probiotic supplement. 

Consumers who want to improve their gut health and promote the growth of their resident F. prau therefore need to take a prebiotic that supports its growth. As a wholefood solution, Livaux® is safe and effective for both children and adults, including for specific health conditions such as IBS, IBD (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and celiac disease sufferers. 

Livaux® derived from Golden Kiwi Fruit is a wholefood that enhances the immune system response, controls inflammation and helps ameliorate the symptoms of colds and flu. Livaux® is a LOW-FODMAP compliant ingredient.

** This is a fridge free formula and the probiotics are only activated upon contact with warmth and moisture, aka the digestive tract.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Supplement upon awakening in the morning. Mix with water, juice, yoghurt, kefir or smoothies and consume immediately or as directed by your practitioner. Do not use if protection seal-cap is torn or missing. 

DOSAGE:
An adult should have around 15-20 billion of bacterial cells per day (3 capsules).
A child from 4 to 10 years can have 10-15 billion of bacterial cells per day (1-2 capsules).
Children aged 10 + can work towards the full adult dose as needed.

It is very important to build the probiotic dose up slowly. Start from a very small amount. 

Observe any “die-off” symptoms (including, but not limited to fatigue, nausea, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, low grade fever, headache, and flu like symptoms). If there are none then, increase the dose gradually and methodically over time. When you see a reaction, stay on this dose until the “die-off” symptoms settle or disappear. Then increase the dose again and watch for any further reactions. Keep increasing the dose until a therapeutic level is reached. This period of building up the dose can take from a few weeks to a few months and is different for each person.
