The time has come to announce my partnership with Seed! I’ve been teasing this announcement for over a month, and those who have DM’d me over the years asking what probiotic I take have been in on the secret for quite some time. I am SO unbelievably excited about this partnership; I started taking Seed’s Daily Synbiotic when they first launched and it has done wonders for my overall health. I discovered Seed after learning about it from some of the biggest, most well-respected names in the business (cue Kelly LeVeque, Chris Kresser, and SO many more), and I’m excited to share its magic with you.
I wanted to write this post and lay down what Seed is, and why I can’t live without their Daily Synbiotic, in a simple and easy to understand way. Talking about ‘probiotics’ and other medical/science terms can get quite technical, and simple products can become confusing. Rather than use a lot of fancy words to describe Seed’s Daily Synbiotic, I’m going to do my best to make this relatable.
Probiotics are live microorganisms that interact with your human cells and existing bacteria in the colon and they are essential for keeping your gut healthy.
GOOD bacteria perform many important functions in our body including:
Helping with digestion
Promoting tissue healing and adaptive immunity
Balancing the pH in the vagina and helps protect from unwanted yeast
Helping break down food and protecting teeth and gums
… AND SO MUCH MORE.
Lesser known but just as important are PREbiotics. Prebiotics are compounds that are biotransformed by bacteria in the gut into metabolites important for health (you can think of them as nutrients used by bacteria to help you thrive).
Seed’s Daily Synbiotic includes probiotics plus prebiotics. That’s right, you’re getting two for one in a single dose.
Why is Seed’s Daily Synbiotic better than other probiotics? Did you know that most probiotics don’t survive the trip to your gut? Seed is specifically designed so that both the probiotics and the prebiotics survive the journey and actually make it to your gut so you can reap the benefits. It has 24 probiotic strains, is validated in 23+ clinical studies, and is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and free from 14 classes of allergens.
What are the benefits of the Daily Synbiotic?
Eases bloating and constipation
Helps maintain healthy gut barrier function
Promotes heart health
Supports gut immune function, and increases the metabolism of short-chain fatty acids
Supports folate production in the body
Promotes skin health
I’ve been taking probiotics for a total of eleven years, and Seed’s for the last year and a half. I began feeling its benefits instantly and haven’t looked at any other probiotics ever since. Seed is the real deal. NOW LISTEN! Seed’s Daily Synbiotic is very powerful! When you order it, be sure to start with just ONE capsule a day for a few days. Once your body adjusts to the influx of good bacteria into your body, you can up your dosage to the clinically studied dose of 2 capsules a day. If you start at 2 capsules, you may experience some minor discomfort due to acclimation. I take my probiotics first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
