Thanksgiving is a time to be with our nearest and dearest, to focus on connection, to give thanks for all that has and is still to come. It is also a time to enjoy the pleasure and rituals of food and communal celebration. It is not a time to count calories, stress about belly bulge, or lean into a shame spiral about imbibing a little too heavily. Thus, it is with much gratitude that we can share our favorite probiotic, one that is engineered to support whole-body health—even throughout the holidays.
Let us introduce you to Seed’s Daily Synbiotic (DS-01™). This 24-strain probiotic and prebiotic is formulated for clinically—and scientifically—studied benefits including digestive health, skin health, heart health, and gut immune function.
If you’ve felt lost by the overwhelming amount of probiotics flooding the wellness market, or worse, if you’ve felt duped by certain brands’ cure-all claims, let us reassure you—this isn’t that situation. Why? It’s simple really—science.
Remember the days when science trumped anecdotal evidence? Us too, and so does the team behind Seed. In an industry awash with unverified wellness products, Seed has gone in the opposite direction. The brand’s co-founders and co-CEOS, Ara Katz and Raj Dhir, saw a need for a probiotic that was built on actual science and enlisted the help of a number of highly reputable professionals, including Chief Scientist Gregor Reid, who also happens to be the Chair of the United Nations World Health Organization Expert Panel on Probiotics. Basically, if you’re gonna call in an expert, you may as well as go for the big guns.
Truth be told, many of us in the wellness industry, myself included, have fallen victim to the “probiotics = good” mentality. Enough content had entered my social feed explaining to me that (a) gut health was important, (b) kombucha made it better, and (c) a layperson like me did not need to know more than that. It wasn’t until Seed came along, that I began to understand the significance and the beauty of bacteria (a sentence I’d never thought I’d write).
Spending time on Seed’s website has a similar effect to watching a Blue Planet documentary or an episode of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos. Its mix of scientific facts, data visualization, and poetry; manage to reframe the clinical, and make cells and microbes seem profound and otherworldly. For example, did you know that you are a superorganism? Nope, not a positive affirmation, this is an actual fact. As Seed’s website explains, “There’s a community of 38,000,000,000,000 microorganisms (mostly bacteria) living in and on us. Seeded by our mothers, this is our microbiome—our non-human half we can’t live without. In an astonishing journey of symbiosis, microbes co-evolved with us, carrying in their genes, and therefore in us, the entire history of the world”. I’ve reread that sentence at least ten times because in the most poignant way, and for the first time in my life, it explains to me WHY probiotics are important.
If you don’t have the time to go down a research rabbit hole, let me give you the topline of why Seed’s Daily Synbiotic is going to be an ally to you this Thanksgiving season and beyond.
- Your gut plays an important role and needs to be in great shape to perform. It’s also big—like the size of a badminton court big. And being the workhorse it is, it has two jobs: absorb beneficial nutrients and keep out harmful substances. Let’s be real, around the holidays, our gut may be working overtime. To combat this, Seed has used clinically—and scientifically—studied strains to formulate a probiotic that actively tackles the full gamut of digestive problems from irregularity to bloating and gas (problems nobody wants to deal with at the communal dinner table).
- If you’re not one of the many Americans struggling with digestive issues, Seed’s Daily Synbiotic can also help with skin health. Apparently, there are only a couple trillion microorganisms that regulate skin quality. Out of the 24 strains in the Daily Synbiotic, Seed has focused four strains specifically for skin. Meaning adding Seed’s Daily Synbiotic as an inside-out aspect to your skin care regime could have dermatological health benefits, such as smoother and clearer skin.
- Not all probiotics are created equal. Seed’s Daily Synbiotic is one of the few probiotics on the global market that includes naturally occurring human strains and uses whole genome testing. Also unlike most other probiotic brands, Seed’s Daily Synbiotic has demonstrated 100% survivability in simulated digestion, meaning they live long enough in your system to get to work.
The science community confirms the efficacy of Seed’s Daily Synbiotic but you may have also seen Seed blowing up on Instagram. Many people in the wellness industry are using Seed’s Daily Synbiotic with amazing results and also geeking out on the science behind their personal microbiome. Between the research, testimonials, and integrity of Seed, we’re feeling grateful that this year we are able to deepen our understanding of our gut health, and give it the best medicine to help it heal.
