Seed Is Giving Probiotics an Eco-Friendly Makeover That Benefits Your Health *and* the Planet
Meet the newest addition to your daily routine.
When you think of bacteria, it's probably the last thing you want to put in your body. But the reality is the not-so-great types you hear of often—pathogenic strains like Salmonella and Streptococcus—make up less than one percent of all bacteria.
The rest? Totally harmless, and—as you'll soon learn—sometimes even great for your health.
The Good Side of Bacteria
Seed Health is helping consumers see bacteria in a whole new light, sharing just how beneficial it can be for everything from digestive health to your skin microbiome.
You might not realize this, but there's actually already a community of 38 trillion bacteria living in and on your body right this second—most of which live in your gastrointestinal tract. The bacteria in your body help you digest food, synthesize essential vitamins, and beyond. Probiotics and prebiotics essentially provide a boost, helping your bacteria work optimally in order to keep you feeling your best.
Probiotics are "live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host." And prebiotics are "substrates that are selectively utilized by host microorganisms, conferring a health benefit." Seed combined the two into its DS-01 Daily Synbiotic—a planet-friendly way to better your health from the inside out.
Why a Synbiotic Belongs in Your Daily Routine
When shopping for something you're putting in your body, you want the ingredients to be top-notch. With Seed, you're in good hands. The company created a product that's backed by scientists, researchers, and doctors—all while keeping the planet in mind.
Seed's Daily Synbiotic is a 24-strain, broad-spectrum probiotic and prebiotic. The prebiotic outer capsule is made from Indian pomegranate, and the probiotic inner capsule is a proprietary formulation comprised of clinically and scientifically studied strains at research facilities around the world. The synbiotic is not of animal or soil origin, and it was biofermented in Europe.
What's also unique about Seed's Daily Synbiotic is its 2-in-1 ViaCap® Delivery Technology. Being capsule-in-capsule protects the inner probiotic against anything that's going to get in the way of the live probiotics making it to the end of your small intestine for delivery into the colon. That means stomach acid, digestion enzymes, nor bile salts stand a chance.
Because of that, you're better able to reap the benefits of taking it daily. The probiotic strains have been shown to support digestive health, gut barrier integrity, gut immune function, heart health, skin health, and micronutrient synthesis. Yep, it truly covers all the bases.
A Sustainable Solution for Your Health
Anyone who takes a daily supplement has likely dealt with a waste dilemma. Most options come in plastic bottles that can sometimes be difficult to recycle. Every month, you toss out the old and add a new one to your bathroom cabinet.
Seed takes the waste out of the picture with its refill system. Your probiotics come in a glass jar, and there's no need to buy another. Instead, your monthly refill comes in a home-compostable, bio-based pouch made from U.S.-grown, non-GMO cornstarch. It's tough enough to keep oxygen and moisture out, protecting the synbiotic during shipment... yet gentle enough to dissolve in water. In fact, it's totally edible and you could eat it if you really want to.
Rest assured that the shipping materials are eco-friendly, too: The box is constructed with ecological paper from algae. Then the bio-based tray is made of renewable ingredients (starch, natural fibers, and water) and can be recycled or composted at home.
Planet-friendly probiotics are hard to come by, but it's safe to say Seed is worthy of being a staple in your routine. If you're sold and want to try it out for yourself, you're in luck: You can get a discount on your order by using the code BRIGHTLY at checkout.
