I used Seed Probiotics for a Month – A Review

When the new year started, I decided that I would take a more serious role in my health. The first step I took was adding probiotics to my routine.

So, when Seed Synbiotics contacted me about an affiliate partnership, I took it as a sign. I was being given a chance to be accountable to myself, in a very simple way.


What are Probiotics and Prebiotics?

Do you take a probiotic? If not, it may be because you’re not sure what they are.

How about a prebiotic? I wasn’t aware of how important both prebiotics and probiotics were until I went through Seed University. Here are some things I learned:

Probiotics are live microorganisms, or “good bacteria” that (studies show) provide health benefits when administered in the right amounts.

Prebiotics are the food that feeds your probiotics. Did you know your probiotics need to feed? Me neither

Why Seed Synbiotics Works

After the initial 2 weeks of getting my body acclimated to Seed, I could feel a difference in my body. This isn’t my first time trying probiotics, but there’s something different about Seed — the capsule.

The capsule is a prebiotic and probiotic together, so it ensures that it survives the trip through your digestive tract.

The capsule is designed to protect again stomach acid, which usually causes most probiotics to not make it through the digestive tract.

But What About The FDA?

 Here in the US, probiotics have been a hot topic, especially when it comes to FDA standards.

The FDA categorizes probiotics as dietary supplements. This category isn’t as regulated as other health categories.

Seed adheres to the FDA requirements but also adheres to the European Food Safety Authority (ESFA) and Japan’s Food for Specified Health Uses (FOSHU) standards.

With these higher standards, we’re able to know more about Seed and its benefits, like the fact that it includes 4 strains clinically studied in humans to support skin health.

Passing The Test

In order to be a partner with Seed, I had to go to Seed University to learn all about the company, what microbiomes and probiotics are, and so much more.

I’m not joking; I even had to take an exam! Don’t worry. I totally passed. The course helped me understand how essential probiotics are for the human body, and how essential it is for a busy mom like me.

Adding Seed To My Routine

As I mentioned, I’m a busy mom. Because of my busy schedule, I need to make taking care of myself as simple as possible.

Seed capsules don’t need refrigeration, which is a bonus for me—one less thing to worry about keeping our full fridge.

The packaging comes in recyclable and compostable items, which I love.

Seed is also a subscription service, so that’s one more thing I can take off of my to-do list. I receive my Seed Synbiotics monthly and look forward to getting that beautiful package in the mail.

The First Two Weeks of Seed

Here’s the deal when you start Seed: you will feel different. Like any new dietary change, you may have some stomach discomfort which is normal.

I took one capsule each day for 3 days. Then on day 4, I was able to increase it to 2 capsules daily. After about 10 days, the discomfort started to subside, and I felt pretty great. It was an easy transition into my regular routine.

Giving Seed a Try For 30 Days

If you’d like to try to add Seed Synbiotics to your routine, I suggest giving it a go for 30 days.

They have a 30-day guarantee, so if you change your mind about the subscription, they do offer a refund.

    I have never tried a probiotic, although I’ve learned a bit about them. Thank you for sharing about your experience (and the adjustment period – if people aren’t expecting that they might give up right away).

    So you tried this for a month, what happened by the end of the month? I’ve been looking for reviews but have struggled hearing the personal side of this product. I mostly read the info about the product that I can find on their webiste.
    What have you noticed about your body after trying SEED? And big question, was it so great that you are still using the product? Can you share some personal comments?
    Thank you for your review and your response to my questions.

      I’ve seen a huge increase in my energy, my skin has cleared up, and I used to feel quite bloated at least twice a month, and that’s disappeared completely. I hope this helps you make your decision.

    I have been taking seed for 5 months. On my 3rd month notice shipment running late so I changed from 2 pills to 1. My body felt good with 1 pill. Bowel movement where also good. With 2 pills my stomach would feel sour lots of grumble. Can I still stick with 1 pill?

      I’m a 1 pill girl. I haven’t tried 2 because my stomach is already sensitive.
