One day in the last few months, I did a little overhaul of the supplements I was taking. I realized I was taking a few supplements because I heard they were good for this or that, but I didn’t truly understand what each one was doing within my body. One of those supplements was a probiotic! Since that time, I’ve done a lot of research to learn why we need them, what they do to the gut, and why some brands are better than others.
Lucky for me, Ritual released Synbiotic+, their very own gut health product including a probiotic blend, right after I did this deep dive. Since I was already pretty researched on the probiotic-front, I knew this was a good one. (It took Ritual over four years of tweaking to get just right!) Many of you probably know that I am already a big fan of the brand. I’ve taken their Essential for Women 18+ multivitamin for over two years straight and absolutely love it. The brand has set such high standards, as they include the high-quality ingredients, are transparent about what’s inside their capsules, and each labeled ingredient is traceable down to its source and supplier! So to say that I was excited about their Synbiotic+ was an understatement!
Today I’m going to explain just what is inside Ritual’s Synbiotic+, why probiotics are important and a few other things I’ve learned along the way.
What is a probiotic and why do we need to take one?
Our gut is made up of good and bad bacteria. Probiotics support the growth of good bacteria by providing live microorganisms that contribute to healthy gut flora. Unfortunately, daily disturbances of modern life like diet, stress, travel, the use of certain medications, etc. can all throw our gut flora off kilter. That’s where supplements like Synbiotic+ come in to help support the gut microbiome.*
Why is Ritual’s probiotic special?
Synbiotic+ is a 3-in-1 single-nested capsule which contains prebiotics, probiotics, and a postbiotic. It’s actually not very common to see a postbiotic included in a gut health supplement. This is just one of many things that make Synbiotic+ so special. Below I’ll explain what each of these biotics do!
Prebiotic: Supports the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria living in the gut and targets undesirable bacteria in the gut.
Probiotic: Helps provide relief from mild and occasional discomforts such as bloating, gas, and diarrhea. Ritual only uses two of the most clinically studied probiotic strains in the world.*
Postbiotic: Provides fuel to the cells that make up the gut lining and supports a healthy gut barrier function.
Something that I really love about the Synbiotic+ is that it has a delayed-release capsule. It’s designed to help the capsule reach the colon (not the stomach), an ideal place for probiotics to survive and grow!
You only need to take one capsule of this gut health product blend daily! The single-nested capsule includes a 3-in-1 prebiotic, probiotic and postbiotic.* Plus, it tastes like mint, just like their multivitamin.
