Symprove is made in a controlled environment through a series of carefully controlled stages. First we boil specially selected grain to create a wort. The wort is purified and sterilised and following this, the temperature is controlled in sterilised vats and the four strains of bacteria are carefully introduced. The live bacteria begin to divide and once the required levels are reached, the process is halted and Symprove is ready for bottling once it’s been tested by an independent laboratory. Throughout every stage, the bacteria are carefully nurtured as they are living organisms. The bacteria we use are high purity laboratory cultures which are unique to Symprove.
Symprove is a food supplement which contains live bacteria in a barley extract. The bacteria may be considered probiotics, and the barley extract a prebiotic. However, the use of both these terms is not permissible in commercial communications under European food law.
Symprove has a strong Research & Development Programme and is constantly improving its products. We are researching two main areas. Firstly, the effectiveness of the delivery system, where we work extensively with independent laboratories and Healthcare Professionals to make sure our delivery system is as good as it can possibly be. In fact, breakthrough independent research by University College London (UCL), where they tested mainstream products on sale in the UK, shows that Symprove is the only product they tested that could meet all three challenges of being able to arrive, survive, thrive and colonise in the gut.
Secondly, for over 10 years, Symprove have invested heavily into research with leading independent Health professionals to demonstrate the effectiveness of Symprove.
Regulatory law means that probiotics are categorised as food products and cannot make health claims. In addition, it is now no longer permissible to use the word probiotics in consumer marketing materials. Many people believe that taking products which contain live bacteria can help their health and maintain balance in the gut.

Symprove is a water-based formulation that contains four unique strains of live activated bacteria. Because of this unique formulation Symprove will not trigger digestion, meaning the bacteria are able to:
Arrive to the gut unharmed and in full strength
Survive the harsh acidic environment of the stomach
Thrive in the gut to colonise successfully
Symprove helps to support the gut microbiome and balance gut bacteria.
Symprove comes in packs of four x 500ml bottles. Each single bottle will last you 7-8 days on the 12-week programme. Your 12-week programme will consist of three four-packs. We recommend 12 weeks to start with, as that is how long it takes to initially re-set the gut bacteria balance.
Each morning, on an empty stomach, take a 70ml dose using the cup provided in the box, and leave it a minimum of ten minutes before eating and drinking anything.
If you have purchased all 12 bottles in one go, please ensure you start your 12-week programme straightaway because of the shelf-life of the product.
A minority of people report some ups and downs as their bodies adjust to the Symprove bacteria. This is perfectly normal so don’t be alarmed and continue to take Symprove daily.
Most people report a positive feeling within the first few weeks, although it can take longer.
It is important to take Symprove for the full 12 weeks in order to experience the best results from a healthy balance of gut bacteria
In the latter part of the 12 week programme, our customers generally report that their experience settles as routine is established and they become accustomed to the Symprove bacteria.
From an independent trial on Symprove it was found that 12 weeks was an optimal period for change.
