What Are Synbiotics and How Do They Help Gut Health?

Synbiotics are what makes Biotica Water so good for your gut, but what are they exactly, and how do they work?


What are Synbiotics?

The term synbiotics simply refers to prebiotics and probiotics that work synergistically to support gut health.

Probiotics are ‘good bacteria’ that, instead of causing disease, promote health by assisting with digestion, regulating hormones, stabilising blood pressure, optimising immunity, and more. They need a fuel source in order for these to effectively populate the gut and impart maximum benefit. That’s where prebiotics come in.

Prebiotics are dietary fibres that nourish the good microbes of the gut and allow them to multiply. They’re found in almost all plant foods, but are particularly abundant in whole grains, bananas, oats, blueberries, onions, chia seeds, and garlic, just to name a few.


What Synbiotics are in Biotica Water?

Biotica synbiotic water contains one billion colony forming units of bacillus subtilis - one of the most widely studied and beneficial probiotic strains. Unlike many others, It’s able to survive extreme environments (such as stomach acid) and does not need to be refrigerated.

Research shows that bacillus subtilis can:

  • Improve symptoms of indigestion
  • Reduce gas and bloating
  • Maintain the remission of symptoms in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Improve gut bacteria balance and relieve symptoms of Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Help fight infections including C. difficile and H. pylori
  • Prevent relapse in acid reflux symptoms
  • Relieve generalised abdominal pain

Biotica Water also contains chicory root fibre (inulin). A potent prebiotic, this all-natural fibre acts as food for the bacillus subtilis, enabling it to propagate as effectively as possible inside the body.


What about Postbiotics?

When prebiotics and probiotics work together synergistically they create postbiotics. These are healthy metabolites and substrates produced by good bacteria, such as folic acid, niacin, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12.

How Synbiotic Biotica Water Can Improve Gut Health

With the perfect balance of prebiotics and postbiotic-producing probiotics, Biotica Water is specifically designed to improve gut health.
