Meet The Symprove Bacteria

Meet the Symprove bacteria.

There are many species of bacteria that all have different functions.

L.acidophilus and L. rhamnosus are both members of the lactobacillus family, yet they possess quite different behaviours and carry out different functions in the body.

Symprove contains 4 unique strains of live activated bacteria. Including L. rhamnosus, E. faecium, L. acidophilus, and L. plantarum.

Lets find out more about them...



This bacteria was originally considered to be a subspecies of L. casei, but later genetic research found it to be a species all of its own.

This bacterium is beneficial for the human intestinal tract and it is believed to help with constipation and other digestive upsets, urinary tract infections, bacterial vaginosis, and vaginal yeast infections.

It may also be used to help those with chronic digestive problems in conjunction with medication and other probiotic bacteria.

E. faecium

It can live in the human intestine and provides nutritional support in the event of diarrhoea diseases.It is a transient bacterium that must continuously be replaced in the body and it is useful in defending against pathogenic microbes that may invade the bowel.

L. acidophilus

L. acidophilus ferments sugars into lactic acid, it occurs naturally in the human and animal gastrointestinal tract.

Some strains of L. acidophilus are considered to have probiotic characteristics and are able to survive gastrointestinal transit, being resistant to bile, low pH, and digestive enzymes. L. acidophilus may be helpful in reducing serum cholesterol levels and has shown to improve bowel regularity as well as antibiotic bowel related issues.

L. plantarum

A gram-positive bacterium that is found in a variety of niches. These include dairy, meat, and many vegetable fermentations. It is also found in the human gastrointestinal tract and assists in biological activity.

L. plantarum is able to adapt and thrive in a range of environments.
