Life can get hectic, but the good news is that getting your balance back is easier than you think. Symbio is a simple way to support your inner wellbeing.
Yoghurts that are merely labelled ‘probiotic’ won’t necessarily do the job. Symbio Probalance contains Bifidobacterium lactis DR10™. DR10™ is a simple name for a specific strain of probiotic cultures scientifically called Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™. It is a natural probiotic strain discovered by the former Dairy Research Centre in New Zealand (now called the Fonterra Research Centre). At Fonterra Brands, we know the levels of probiotic in Symbio will be present in every serve of product as we carry out shelf life testing on our product. And thanks to our colleagues in research and development, we know live DR10™ cultures survive digestion.
Symbio is perfect to enjoy on its own, with fresh fruit, or over your favourite cereal. And while one serve a day will help restore your digestive balance, we’ve made it delicious too.
^The fibre in Symbio helps keep you regular, plus calcium supports digestive enzyme function, when consumed as part of a healthy plan.
What are Probiotics?
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) define probiotics as “Live microorganisms which, when ingested in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”.
For probiotics to deliver any kind of health benefits they need to be able to survive in the gastric environment of the human gut. Probiotics must also remain viable (or alive) for the shelf life of the food.
Benefits of Probiotics
Probiotics are microorganisms that aid digestion by boosting the number of friendly or ‘good’ bacteria that live naturally in the gut. They are known to be important modulators for health, operating through a complex system to support many facets of our inner wellbeing.
Probiotics or ‘good’ bacteria help to:
Top up or replenish the number of ‘good’ bacteria
Reduce the growth of harmful bacteria
Restore natural digestive balance
