What is a Synbiotic Formula?

A synbiotic formula is a powerhouse combination of probiotics and prebiotics—known as “food” for probiotics—that supports digestive health. Prebiotics are so named because they pass through the digestive system and promote the growth of essential, beneficial probiotics within the digestive tract.*


Your Digestive System

The digestive tract is essentially a tube that runs from one end of the body to the other. It is a complex environment filled with microorganisms that are essential for proper digestion and nutrient absorption. And, because 70% of immune cells originate in the intestinal tract, it is also a center for immune health.*


Probiotics

Probiotics, or beneficial bacteria found in supplements and certain fermented foods, can help fortify the balance of microorganisms in the digestive tract. Probiotics work to keep this intestinal balance in favor of the “good” guys versus the “not-so-good” guys, or non-beneficial bacteria. This important microbial balance is essential for balanced digestive health and helps support a healthy immune system.*


Prebiotics

Prebiotics, a type of fiber, are also known as oligosaccharides. Oligosaccharides are found naturally in certain fruits and vegetables while fructooligosaccharides are a form of this beneficial nutrient used in health supplements. Prebiotics act as “food” for the beneficial probiotics and microorganisms in the digestive tract.*

Sedona Labs probiotic formulas all feature a specific non-gas forming prebiotic fiber called a short-chain fructooligosaccharide (NutraFlora® scFOS®). This prebiotic’s unique short-chain structure make it an excellent choice for beneficial probiotic support in the digestive tract without the bloating or gas that some fibers produce.*
